great story:


hygeinest always used to give me poo poo for not flossing enough because my gums would always bleed when I brushed. basically my fault for being a piece of poo poo

anyway, randomly, not long after separtion my exwife tells me she has chlamydia.. and not sure if it was back when we were boning. she thought I gave it to her :rolleyes:

regardless, take 1g of azithromycin anyway coz not sure if have it or not but lets be safe




and gums no longer bleed


e: here in nz azithromycin is one of the least prescribed antibniotics

apple: and the clap from my wife keeps my gums from bleeding

yes i know thats gonorrhea but this is the best i can do

once upon a time, (certain kinds of) engineers legitimately needed really powerful machines because most computers weren't capable of supporting cad work at any sort of acceptable performance. nowadays of course anything capable of running world of warcraft should be capable of handling most cad work just fine because it's not like bridges have gotten orders of magnitude more complicated to keep up with the enormous leaps in cpus and gpus. but of course there are engineers who will still say they absolutely need top of the line everything because they're an engineer goddamnit

my work laptop definitely can't handle solidworks. crashes even with simple stuff. the new machines they're rolling out to the MEs seem to handle it fine, but the several-year-old workstation i have access to runs slow as hell, especially if i open a big assembly

maybe they dont have enough hard disk space to perform the upgrade?

unlikely, cause school poo poo takes up a lot of space so they prob have an external or something to shovel crap onto when internal disk gets full, but maybe they're just lazy

how does one even design that thing? vhdl? verilog? clash (lol)?

no seriously how do these big chip companies design their stuff? is it all source code that gets compiled to chip design or do they have to also manually design the physical chip internals? to me it sounds like there is a lot of bespoke stuff and design concerns that may or may not be mappable to HDL languages (e.g. heat, interference, etc...).

do chip designers have to learn the whole structure before they can work or is it compartmentalized enough that they can stick to their specific tasks?

i cant speak for the big companies, but i have done chip design for a startup (rip) that spun its own asics. in our case, we had some trick proprietary stuff around the edges, mostly analog but some digital too. that was all done by hand. then the main digital logic was designed in vhdl and compiled into an actual core. that core was dropped into place, tweaked a little as needed for packaging, and connected to i/o etc by hand

as far as compartmentalization, if you were working on one of the outer modules you would have a certain amount of area allocated to your thing and other people could work on other parts elsewhere. if you are working on the digital core you can check in changes like any other software

probably someplace like apple has a more streamlined way to do things :shobon:

does anyone remember what the power adapters looked like for the G3 powerbooks, maybe have one handy?

yeah like you found out, its basically RCA but instead of a center pin it has a 3.5mm TRS plug. it actually doesnt use the outer part of the RCA at all. well, it's the return path for the "is charging" light in the power adapter, but totally unnecessary. if you are cool with making your own adapter you can get a solder-on 3.5mm plug and stab it in there and it will work

it doesnt use all 3 positions, in fact the tip is unused



please do a better soldering job than this guy did

also, thats a 2.5mm version for the later G3 and all G4 i/powerbooks, but it's the same pinout for the early ones, just with a different size connector

I got one of those because they look cool but it had nightmarish coil whine and the CRT is so power hungry that you can't use it with anything other than g4 towers or it will blow up the computers PSU. It's possible to hack together your own VGA to ADC adapter with external power but I don't think it's worth it.
So now it's just sitting in the basement

do the first-party adc adapters not work because they only pass through the digital pins or something?

yeah, there was a third party Gefen adapter that could run it although it was a 60 watt adapter and the display runs up to 100w so it probably wasn't going to hold up in the long run
the biggest crime of that ADC CRT is that it does not support plain 60hz and 70hz VGA display modes so you can't really use it for PC retrogaming. It would have to be VirtualPC on your mac.

https://www.applefritter.com/node/4008 has more discussion about it. Too bad such a cool looking monitor is so flawed.

that's a good thread, and you're right that sucks. still want one though

seems to me that you could run it fine on a pc at one of its supported resolutions, if you solve the power on issue mentioned in that thread. use dosbox to scale the content?

idk, it's a perfect display for a Cube, so that's prob what i would use it for

well, like you said, the monitor is like 100W max (and will survive on that 60W gefran adapter) so it seems quite doable to me

i havent measured the cube's normal draw, but it can't be too much since it's passively cooled

i would be unsurprised to learn that the cube power supply does 200W specifically for this use case
