  1. We did put a type of cleaner for radiator and we thought that's the cause of the problem

  2. m-in says:

    Why did you put the cleaner in? Lemme guess: it was overheating… A classic head gasket failure.

  3. No. Verge got it completely wrong. The tools that Apple provides are needed to get the job done right each and every time, leaving your with the product with same specs as the unopened one. No “lite” repair system can claim that sort of performance. These phones require rather specific tooling to open and close successfully. Just because you got it open and closed doesn’t mean you didn’t damage it during the process. You are not equipped with knowledge and tools needed to ascertain that it was done wrong or right. Visual inspection doesn’t cut the mustard here. Just because it looks and feels “ok” doesn’t mean it is. It would really help if engineers with experience in high tech high volume manufacturing of complex products were the only ones commenting on such matters. Everyone else is basically talking out their ass. Sorry folks; that’s the truth.

  4. How many iPhones would you estimate that you’ve personally repaired?

  5. I’ve got enough repaired by so-called phone repair people to know that they get it 99% right when nothing but 100% suffices. I’ve ran a few on a coordinate machine to show mech eng students the before and after. Apple’s tooling is designed by people who know what they are doing. I’m no Apple fanboy, I’m just floored that there are idiots out there who can’t appreciate the nice things. And in this case, Apple providing the right tools, shipping them right so that will they survive it, is a very nice thing. And people bitch and moan. You folk can’t have it both ways.

  6. A few years ago, my gf diagnosed me with lactose intolerance and sleep apnea the first week we were together. Her words were.. “I like you and we would make good looking babies together so you’re welcome.” I was 35 at the time.. now I’m 40, married with a beautiful 3y son, lactaid pulls on Amazon sub and getting restful sleep with a resmed machine.

  7. Read up on what the estrogen in the dairy does to you though. Lactose is just a prompt to stop.

  8. Lactose is a wittle bitty problem. Estrogen is the real deal. That’s what makes dairy generally bad for humans. We’re not baby calves.

  9. It's entirely possible. My experiences are not the total summation of laser and CCD damage. I've just never personally seen that kind of failure in the many shows I've worked with lasers rated in the IIIb and IV classifications.

  10. That’s probably what happened. Something vaporized and recondensed it looks like. All my CCD damage experience matches yours.

  11. Look for dipped tantalum capacitors. They all die with symptoms similar to what you describe: a gradual collapse of the supply rails.

  12. I'm convinced 99% of TIFU are writing exercises, and not truthful at all.

  13. COVID survivor here - I caught Delta variant, and it totally destroyed the neurological receptors in the mucous membranes in my mouth and nose. As in, it felt like they were stripped with an acid wash and it took them months to regenerate. Six months later I still don't have the full range of taste and smell back.

  14. Yup. Same happened to me. The disabling of the receptors is done by our own immune system. It takes a long time to recover.

  15. Orbital CDNs aren't feasible until Starship is running, or some comparable (read: dramatic) reduction in launch prices occurs. Even then the primary advantage would be in having a smallish constellation with global coverage instead of building ground sites worldwide; areas with high user density would still be better-served by ground datacenters near the uplink sites.

  16. Starlink is not feasible long term without Starship. The two systems are highly dependent on each other and for survival of SpX. The current v1.x satellites are an end of life design that will be phased out as soon as starship starts flying. To get an idea of how fast SpX is innovating in this area, just consider that they consider their currently launching design, with optical links, to be obsolete as soon as starships starts flying somewhat reliably. Their current design, the v2 satellites, each having the mass of a small car, are too big to fit in the F9 fairing, and F9 has not enough upmass capability to launch enough of them at once to make financial sense. SpX is most definitely not sitting on their laurels, and the Starlink customer experience at the moment is very much a transient state of affairs.

  17. It's definitely feasible if they were just going to deploy the phase 1 constellation then kick back and rake in profits. F9 is capable of deployment and maintenance at that scale.

  18. Starlink is not financially viable at current prices with F9 launches used to replenish the constellation.

  19. My brother thought being vegan would help kidney issues (turned out to make it worse it seemed like sadly, but oh well. Doing better now) so when a vegan "fast food" type of joint opened, was all ears to go and support him. Meat eater, but don't mind helping others with dietary needs.

  20. That’s so sad… my wife is vegan and a good cook and all the vegan recipes I eat are excellent – I’d pay for them gladly in a restaurant. Just ate vegan tamales for brunch today. Splendid stuff. Made my face sweat a lot from the spice level :)

  21. All sorts of stuff really. Asian, Indian, Chinese, Mexican, German, etc etc. The recipes come from a variety of cookbooks and then get modified over time. She also has her own creations.

  22. I’m surprised how easy it seems to survive these things when they get hit.

  23. From inside the tank only the driver seemed to have made it. The two other dudes were hitchhikers riding on the outside. Two deaths in that turret hit, and all three survivors likely had injuries we couldn’t easily see. Certainly loss of hearing for a while.

  24. Yeah but it’s way easier to steer a car that doesn’t have power steering vs one that does, but it’s broken. At least that’s what I recall. Granted it’s been over 30 years since I drove a car without power steering.

  25. Something else was broken then or you were driving some huge thing like an RV or a box truck or towing stuff.

  26. Mostly old pickups and boat sedans from the 70s and 80s lol.

  27. That explains it, lol. I’m a spoiled brat who only ever drove Volvo and Subarus and a Tesla…

  28. The differences don’t matter to passively powered devices. The IEEE 802.3af and 802.3at standards are the active PoR standards with negotiation, endpoint protection, etc. Passive devices do none of it, because it’s cheaper to develop it that way, although it all costs the same to produce by the way. So don’t worry about that.

  29. ok figured it out. For anyone with a similar config - I had to set my pi-hole IP address as the primary DNS address in my WAN settings. That seemed to do it, and I can now resolve internal addresses. I still have no clue where its getting its address pool for VPN clients from though. Its assigning from a 192.168.2.x subnet, and all my internal configured networks are 10.10.x.x. Doesn't affect things, but is interesting.

  30. VPN does address assignments on its own. DHCP is not involved, and it’s not a part of configured networks either. It’s its own special thing. Same on many other platforms.

  31. So this is strictly a desktop application, so I wouldn't be using it like I would a real vise. I basically use it as a third hand at my desk, rather than use it to apply pressure, so it should be fine for my needs. You'd be surprised how strong this would be at 100% infill though.

  32. At 100% infill this would be nigh indestructible other than the threaded part failing if loaded in tension – not a normal loading scenario for it anyway. The ball could squish and seize eventually if it were to be overloaded repeatedly. Otherwise, this is a “forever” type of a device. Print and forget. Should outlast you in casual use.

  33. Smol balls, big squeeze! Well done!

  34. Laser weapon? Why does the picture show an electromagnetic warfare thing, basically a fancy radio with antennas bolted on, presumably designed for disabling consumer drones?…

  35. Out and play? I might get a trip to Moscow on my way home.

  36. With that logic, it’s close because you’re on the same planet. It makes sense, in a galactic way.

  37. Yes. I'd rather the tool error and tell me "hey you forgot to assign this signal" than "Oh you forgot to assign this signal let's just put it anywhere".

  38. All tools support it one way or another… it just isn’t a default. You may need literally a line in the makefile or the build script.

  39. I've run into this problem for very large designs where we constrain all signals ourselves on purpose.

  40. Um, all tools I’ve ever worked with let you detect this and abort a run if you so please. Maybe with a line of scripting or two. So even if you do want it to protect yourself, it’s a non issue. I’m confused as to why the post even came to be now…

  41. In Russia you just drink at work. 🤷🏻‍♂️

  42. Eh, I’ve been in fast iterating places where we did this and it was in Japan out of all places. It doesn’t take that long either.

  43. Does the job though… They fly these out in perfect weather.

  44. I accidentally activated this feature in my RSS reader and thought it was broken. Then realized that it was a thing but couldn’t get used it it.

  45. I’m so glad to hear that. It’s a stupid idea that comes from people who either have no clue about how any of this shit works, or who have some clue but should know way better.

  46. I’m glad. Because it’s hokum with no basis in physiology nor visual cognition.

  47. The speedometer is a brushless two- or perhaps three-phase motor. What we see here is what happens when one phase works, but the other is stuck open. By the way, the speedo acts this way when fully functional as well, except it will reset to the proper position on power-up.

  48. Done :) We love all you do!

  49. That’s only a problem if you don’t know anything about satellite imaging products and believe that “the internet” has much to do with what data is available if you’re actually doing business. In other words: lol, all that data is there and is available for money as it always was.

  50. True. A lot has to do with using the capabilities of the jet in mission planning – each type has its own quirks, the armaments are a whole new ballgame, etc.

  51. There are more avionics applications that use 3.5” floppies. I’ve seen someone say quietly “fuck this shit” and replaced the physical drive with an emulator that uses USB sticks with floppy images. Totally illegal but works fine…

  52. Every result you can find for body language/non-verbal communication discusses eye movements. There is no other term for it.

  53. Sure they discuss it, because it does give a glimpse into what the visual attention is doing, but calling it a “body language” misses the point. There is a shit ton of research on visual cognition and eye movements, and the eyes have no “language”, just a bunch of rather stereotypical behaviors tied to the vestibular system, visual cortex, motor cortex and thus proprioception.
