And Ron Rivera will not finish the 2019 season as Head Coach. Frankly, I would have fired him after benching Cam Newton (for a "dress code" issue) prior to a prime time game in Seattle, allowing Derek Anderson to throw a pick on the very first play . Darn shame what happened to the Panthe...

Seahawks/Vikings game was fantastic. And the bonus is that it pushed the 49ers to a wildcard spot!

I hope they both enter week 17 with identical records and play in the SNF slot, because a winner-take-all game would be the best way to close out the regular season.

Re: DYMT: Imi's Legacy

I am a little surprised that they keep on with this, though. You'd think that adding in functionality to the base design probably increases the cost without really driving sales. Building a Roku-type add-on module (with a nice markup) is probably cheaper, AND they get to sell a high-margin accessor...

Fortunately, I haven't run into that yet. Last TV we bought was ~2012, before a lot of the "Smarts" kicked off. And we use video game consoles for apps, blu-ray, and games, so there isn't much need for "baked in" functionality. I am a little surprised that they keep on with this,...

Re: Half-Life: Alyx

It totally has to do with EGS and Stadia. They need a big PR piece to keep the mindshare with gaming crowd, otherwise EGS and Stadia is going to start drawing away users. No, it doesn't.

This has nothing to do with the EGS or Stadia. Valve used Portal to tech demo the Index. It makes perfect sense for them to do the same or similar with Half-Life.

Re: LED Light for Snowblower

VAC_RMS = V(peak)/sqrt(2). A bridge rectifier is going to give an output based on the peak voltage, so JBI is correct that 18VAC (RMS) ~= 25VDC (before conditioning and ignoring diode forward voltages). That 90% figure sounds more like the efficiency AC to DC power supply. /opinion It's been a whil...

Re: LED Light for Snowblower

Duck tape and a flashlight? No nerds vouching for headlamps ? Like JBI said, parallel capacitors add up, so 2 x 2200uF = 4400uF (4 x 1100uF would also work if you're feeling cheeky). These are necessary if you want to combat flickering. Doing a full wave rectifier gets you most of the way from AC to...

In any case, now that backup cameras are mandatory (as of 2018 I believe), every vehicle needs a screen. Not entirely true. It is possible to put the camera output into the mirror.

Yeah, we've only owned the one vehicle with Carplay/Auto (and we've only used Apple Carplay), but they weren't things we had to "install". We basically just did the pairing to the vehicle plus enabling Carplay.
