Re: NFL 2019

Week 10 - League Status A string of wins by the Steelers has elevated the AFC North, although they still own the only winless team in the league. The NFC East continued to slip thanks to the Giants and Reskins. As expected, the NFC West and North remain strong. 1st : NFC West: 24-13-1 (.645) [=1st]...

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...

Re: Can I install Apple Carplay and Android Auto at the same time on a vehicle?

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. But since touchscreens are great at packaging content, and Android/Apple are doing car integration, AND the backup cam...

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.

Let's talk about this. This is a sign of bigger problems in Chicago, if only on special teams. You should always know where your kicker prefers the ball, therefore giving you the best chance of making a field goal in this exact situation. If Nagy wants to take the next step, he needs to know this, ...

This is a straight contradiction. You are asking people to believe that the concept of "8" does anything beyond being a concept. I'm asking people to start noticing 8 around them more and then maybe someone will figure out the why. That just sounds like the Law of Filtering -- i.e. once s...

Don't get too hung up on "Tank for Tua" as a phrase. It's really just a catchy term more than it is a firm strategy. The Dolphins just want the #1 pick so they can choose the best option out of the solid-looking 2020 class. They aren't the only team looking for a franchise QB, and they nee...
