The anti🚫-derailment🚃 & thread🧵 hijacking🔫 thread🧵 ⁉

My new neighbor thinks I’m boring for not drinking and promises that she will change me. I grew up in a cult, I know social pressure and she’s not going to change me…

Guess I’ll avoid this neighbor at all costs, I don’t want to put up with her. :roll_eyes:

Just feed them some bullshit,

“It will interact with my meds and cause insert webmd symptoms they would be guilty if they caused

Make them feel bad for it…

Everything is a game of chicken, you just gotta make them lose

Random electrical question

Automatic dog ball thrower… decided to stop working… looks like a capacitor blew
… think it was because it was left in a under amped charger for too long

What are the chances I can just replace the capacitor and be good to go?
Looks like a 220uf 16v capacitor? Unless I’m dumb and missing something

It depends, hopefully whatever caused that capacitor to blow did not damage anything else. But definitely start there.

You can clean up pcbs with a cotton swab and alcohol to get all the nastiness off. Alcohol is not corrosive or conductive and dries off quickly afaik
I saved a graphics card with that technique

Took me a while to figure out were the capacitor used to be… It was originally nested between the diodes in the top right of the board.

Man, that thing got absolutely destroyed.

BEHOLD! The power of Magic Smoke!

be careful though, turning it upside down might make the electrons fall out.

Only because It is not in the DT store yet, but yeah, you’re correct I can direct it to Hammy’s Tindie store until it is released on the DT store

I honestly would prefer it to link to the main thread and if DT members would like one they can contact me. At least until a version in the store is released. Historically i give these out to the members here for pretty cheap if i charge at all since it was a community driven project. And with the flexies so close to release it will prompt a pricing restructure, i dont want people to get buyers remorse if they buy from my shop and then the prices all change.

Im working on getting the current repeaters to go passive, which means no need for the capacitor on top. the current design with the capacitors would probably get turned into little field detection units (i really like the form factor and find i use the prototype one i made a lot).

DONE ( once browsers are refreshed )

In fact, that’s exactly what @Aoxhwjfoavdlhsvfpzha linked to when he mentioned it
