You will never get the same audio quality as CD. The RIAA equalization sees to that. You may get equivalent frequency response and signal to noise (unlikely unless you unwrap and keep your vinyl in a clean room) but those things are not the whole story with audio quality. Transient response is part of the experience too.
Ever tried to diff two versions of a schematic so you can review a bug fix by someone?
Ever tried to figure out why a schematic design has a bug by looking at a waveform diagram of a simulation where every net is called net000123?
Ever tried to do a state machine in a schematic?
I once wrote a sudoku solver in VHDL while waiting for a contract to end. Would be suitable for FPGA implementation and I was planning on putting it in a FPGA dev system with DVI in and out so it could solve any sudoku on the input and substitute the solution on the output in real time. Sadly, have been too busy for the last fifteen years to complete it.
Actually the lead on a rope was dropped to the floor and then the sailor holding it would hold it vertically and walk along the ship. The time was taken at two points and so the speed of the ship calculated. Swinging the lead was a shortcut so the sailor didn't have to walk to the start point. This was bad as it is less accurate leading to navigation errors (potentially fatal if it means arriving at the end of the sea too soon)
Seems like the cameras are monitoring the shelves to see who picks up and puts back what and then assumes they walk out and are happy to pay for it. All very well till some ne're-do-wells realize the cameras are not monitoring them pinching stuff from other peoples trolleys.
Almost as hopeless as letting you buy watermelons at the self-checkout and not figuring out that it's a case of vodka and not a watermelon you've just put on the scales.
I have a LG-G5 phone with USB-C and it is bollocks, it is now so loose it falls out when it's on the car dashboard. It is very fiddly to get it in properly. Never had those problems with Micro-USB. Stick your finger on the cable end and you can feel which way round it is, then pop it in and it locks.
Does anyone know of a good IoT over mains wiring system? I used to use X10 but they are difficult to source now and the most recent ones I bought are crap. They also don't control lights of less than 60W so no LEDs!
I have mains around the garden but as I'm in Somerset WiFi doesn't go more than three feet in normal weather and some of the buildings are stone.
