See if logic signals are wiggling when your code tries to activate them
Measure frequency and amplitude of AC signals
Look for transients (using the trigger)
We have a nice Tektronix that also has 16 logic inputs. You also need a good DMM, we have a couple of the Fluke 280 series that can record for hours. That's ver nice whne we're trying to see how long a battery will last, or watching a charge cycle.
Get a binocular microscope, you'll need it to check circuit boards and to solder under. Ebay has some cheap ones from China that work OK, You can spend a lot on a really nice one.
You'd think, being in the legal business, that they'd appreciate an independent record of their position, just in case it mattered in a case or something.
FedEx guys, UPS guys, snowplow drivers, ambulance, taxis, public transit...all are tracked by GPS. I'm trying to come up with a reason cops shouldn't be, but all I can come up with is reasons they *should* be.
Because * It's fun? * They can? * They want to? * To learn something? I'm sure there are a few more. Does anyone have not-boring questions?
* he's following in the great Finnish tradition of writing your own OS...
I know which one *I* would choose
a world where once you leave your local shopping store a man follows you around all day, recording where you go, what you look at, what you buy, the music you listen to, the tv shows you watch, which commercials you pay attention to, which ones you don't. There's no law against this, and if you tell him to leave you alone he ignores you. You file an opt out form and he still follows you, but now he hides in the bushes. This is what is happening, but to all of your online life. Thanks for reading.
AdBlock. It's like being able to bash that man with a baseball bat.
LED (should) last longer than Sodium for about the same number of lumens per watt
Sodium draws less power than Mercury vapor
Mercury draws lots less power than incandescent (which no one uses any more)
A good quality (many of the early ones weren't) LED signal will last far longer than an incandescent bulb
I've never seen the "snow obscures signal and doesn't melt" problem here in Boston, but it seems plausible

So these people are Barney Fife.
More Inspector Clouseau than Barney Fife...
This is news for nerds because of Twitter! Twitter is all technical and stuff, with the computers and the social media buzz.
Seriously, WTF? What's next? Baseball scores?
Dude, it's football season.
...unless you're in the playoffs, like the RED SOX!!!!
...it pretty much removes God from the whole picture. His place is then relegated to the creation of life in it's absolutely fundamental form, where evolution takes over.
If you believe in an omnipotent, omniscient creator Deity, what's wrong with believeing that the entire framework, "life, the universe and everything", as Douglas Admas would have said, was created by that Deity? Evolution then becomes just another cog in the marvelous machine. The Bible description of the creation of the world, may be based on "the literal word of God", but it was transcribed and reproduced by Man, and as such, is by definition, imperfect. It makes much more sense to me to believe that a Deity created the universe and the laws by which it functions, and then sat back to watch chemistry, biology and physics do the rest.
Of course, common sense has no place in this debate...
