What a crappy friend.

Friend is a relative term it would seem.

Rule of thumb, when lending gear to friends/bandmates/other musicians, get it back ASAP, for if they have it too long they start thinking its theirs.

My sister's younger cat likes drinking falling water from running taps, so she bought a cat water bowl with a built in fountain. (It runs off USB, which I guess dodges the whole international power supply issue.)

Fill the reservoir, plug it in, off the water gurgles. And the cat?

Intense suspicion.

I come back an hour later and the cat has a dry face, a wet tail, and there is water all around the lino around the new water bowl fountain.

Cats...

I used to have one who loved taking a nap in wash basins. And who had discovered that if he licked long and hard enough at the faucet water would come out. And he sometimes did it while lying in the basin, getting water splattered all over him.

I miss the little bugger.  :(

I'm going to say Not Small Bear or BLMS based on their responses over on DIYStompboxes. I think we are a thorn in the side of Mouser and Arrow. I'm going to go for an oddball - Stewmac.

You can't just drop a bomb like that and not explain as to what happened on DIYStompboxes. Not everyone goes there.

It's a jFet tester for measuring vgs. Looks like the one that came with the first version of the NomNom.

I think I ordered a NomNom just to get that tester board.  ;D

Chef's salty chocolate balls would also have been acceptable.

So if the "Big Cheese" is cloned as the "Cheese Ball".. will JHS release a Lovetone envelope filter clone called the "Big Meat?"

It's gotta be the Meaty Balls

BOOM!



The JHS version will be called Ballmeat because that's even worse.

I just started Resident evil 7. So far so good. Itís a little reminiscent of the first couple, seeming more like a puzzle game, but has good mechanics like 4 and 6. Excited to see how it plays out.

"No writing on the back"

I did this with my first PCBs... then I got sick of trying to figure out what bloody revision or even project the damn boards were :D

I always measure every resistor and cap with the DMM before soldering. I am not in hurry, I hate debugging, I don't trust suppliers to not make errors,  and I am too colour blind to read resistor codes.  ;D

You're right, I must do the same when I built something...
I found that the resistor was wrong because I see too much orange...  ::)
