Using your logic we'd all be dead at 40.

I don't know who "meant" for me to old but I hope that research lets me lead an active life and avoid cancer, alzheimers, parkinsons, arthritis, and muscle atrophy. You could easily say all of these are just part of the aging process.

How about we reword your sentence

"News flash for all you ladies and gents out there ... you were never meant (by who??) to think/act/reason in your forties (and beyond) like you did in......"

Pretty screwed up.

Ahh hell, what a load of crap.

Thats a really crappy solution....for everyone.

At the minimum there should be a premium service where the packets are prioritized. If I'm running a business or just want to play a game I should have an option to get decent performance when I want it.

Normal incandescent bulbs work by lowering the voltage over the bulb. If I understand correctly this isn't a good approach for LED based lighting. You really want to do pulse width modulation (PWM) where you switch the device on/off at different rates to dim the light. A simple circuit in the bulb could do this based on changing voltage but it would add some cost.

Oh, and I'm sure we will have people saying they can see the blinking even if its in the Khz range...

Actually this is positive feedback. Negative feedback produces a stable situation. We have negative news feeding back to create more negative news. Thus positive feedback. If negative news created positive results we'd have negative feedback.

No, I'm not anal at all. Just having a hard time stabilizing and amp I'm designing so its on my mind :).

Any program which runs right is obsolete.

Working...
