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

Meow

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

Nice

Shitpost #3141592

In honor of whoever the holder of mysterious Dogecoin whale account is having made deposits of 420, 69, 420.69, and 3.141592 coins just to show off. (who the hell are you?)

Today I found out this mysterious BK Dynascan component tester/curve tracer was also sold as the Polar T-1000 or T-1200 so I finally have a manual! Woo.

And with the posting of Milkwalker, I dedicate the rest of this to shitposts and random memes.

Subchannel flatulence

Quality observation by my fellow engineer (also a radio survivor):

Music that’s been previously compressed to mp3 sounds like butthole on an HD Radio channel.

Music that’s been stored and played out uncompressed sounds like mere butt cheek on HD Radio.

And here I was thinking it just sounded like a foam cloth top brush with too many pieces missing.
Picture unrelated.

Supercharged for Stunning Shitposting

I added more disk space and removed old junk on this virtual server so it’s no longer constantly trying to run out of space and hit the wall screaming and stuff

To celebrate here is some nonsense

Found this really silly housing development on a ridge near El Dorado Hills that has no actual redeeming things that’d make you want to live there… aside from this transmitter site!
This blower’s not just NLA, it is OFFENSIVELY UNAVAILABLE. I can’t even find much evidence anyone even sold them when they were in production.
The tread wasn’t really glued on great on these boots so I reglued them and used a Tektronix RFM151 and an old handheld CB to weight them during the drying. As you do.

U-Matic Shitpost

welcome to the dimension of glazed rubber parts

“friction is not yours”

You can pop the tire off, but where the hell can you get a new tire?

BVU-800, I would love to know why they bothered with those slip ring contacts since this deck is NOT dynamic tracking equipped – it’s just a 4-head player.


the hell is this thing, a wannabe corvair?

An example of a U-Matic cartridge. It’s actually pretty much as small as it could possibly be for the amount of tape it holds. This is mighty 3/4″ wide tape, but the image quality looks like you recorded your footage to Scott toilet paper.
