Amazingly not yelling about hvac this time

And it still works after I threw the bodge in it last summer

I’m sensing a growing lack of rainbow here, time to remedy that

Fontabulous

Just when you least expect it, what’s basically a portable scalar network analyzer starts talking to you in THIS FONT and you start disbelieving your own eyes:

Wonder if that’s from that Microsoft core fonts package that they made freely available years ago then pretended they didn’t
Oh by the way the antenna is …. Uh. It’s… not?

Root cause of that scary looking reflect plot was revealed by a quick walk up the stairs to the roof to be an almost completely disintegrated piece of LMR-400. My coworker assured me it worked perfectly fine five years ago……..

This is several kilobucks worth of hardware that was misapplied to create a special filter that…. nothing would pass. See if you can spot the issue!

Our IT director dropped a non working Wyse serial terminal on my bench. I don’t think he expected me to tear it open and try to fix it, I think it has an open diode or bad cap in the +5v supply. It’s gonna be the serial console for a Linux machine if I can get it glowing.

And then I was asked to come on Good Day, pose dramatically on a giant shoe, and discuss the a ridiculous goth house. Just because.

This has been a elliptically polarized shitpost.

My advice on how to program one of these drives: ensure that programming one of these drives is a task scheduled for when you’re vacationing entirely off grid in another state
One of these days I’ll figure out how to change the vertical scale on this thing. It’s easy on the FSH3, highly… elusive… on the FSL… Though it will automatically change when you switch to OBW measurement… ??

I dunno… 73 and good night. Just felt like posting nonsense.

visualizing data, irritatingly

Which looks sillier to an uninitiated observer, the results of this butt-dial Google search or my mess of a DMR radio codeplug?

In other news, buzzard puke alert! Changing the “Radio IP Address” field in Motorola TRBO CPS is not how you change the repeater’s Ethernet IP, it’s just how you get it to throw blank error messages with no explanation. Well that’s a solid block of fnord.

You just broadcasted cringe!

Yesterday I noticed while at the hall of suds that CNN was kinda awkwardly taking someone else’s network feed from the CPAC conference* to air leading to a kinda Dueling Chyrons situation.

Given a little more thought, I don’t blame them, would YOU want to attend that crap? I’m pretty sure among other things it’s an absolutely guaranteed COVID-19 superspreader event, but then it’s… just ew.

* pure uncut cringe.

Anyway let’s just continue shitposting things

Can you just lob these filthy things in the wash? I wish.
