MFJ, among us hams, has earned the "Mighty Fine Junk" nickname. You really must have a discerning eye along with experience in order to find the gems among the garbage in their catalog, which is only marginally better than their web site. But there ***are*** gems to be found.
Same goes for the Cushcraft (CushCrap) catalog for antennas and antenna related hardware. If you know what you are doing, lots good to be found amidst the total crap that otherwise abounds.
Example: Cushcraft 5-element Yagi (beam) for six meters.
Worst antenna ever designed.
Buy one anyway, do not use the smallest (most forward) director but save it and the mounting hardware. Use it, along with some other stuff you can buy at any big-box home improvement store, and build my 4-element TriYagi (see the QST article for all measurements). MUCH cheaper than gathering all the hardware from "scratch." And much less work!!
whew, once these are affordable I need one.
If I read it correctly, they have a layer of oxygen on the floor of the basin; which in combination with UV-light makes the solid parts.
heres the guy holding a talk, and its printing while that ;)
Transpiling js to lua? nice idea...
but it seems they abandoned it with this relaese.
I feel JS is probably better known than Lua, although they're both pretty well known.
Lua's fame is as an embeddable language. I don't think anyone actually builds Lua stuff because they like Lua. It's just so easy to embed the interpreter.
This is true. I've never particularly liked Lua as an embedded language, though.
But maybe I'm just picky.
The downside is that it simply isn't a very lightweight embed.
I'm currently looking at Duktape [http://duktape.org] as a possible solution though. It looks *really* light, and simple to embed. I don't know how well it works but I intend to find out.
Hey, check this out. [ http://goo.gl/oqH3wc ]
Intel is jumping on the "computer on a stick" bandwagon. Reasonable specs for a lightweight client-side system. $149 for the 'doze version, $99 for the Linux version. Looks like just the thing if all you need is a lightweight desktop to connect to services behind the glass.
Intel ought to be making an ARM processor of their own, actually.
Still, I would like to see the SoC become so ridiculously inexpensive that eventually *every* monitor has a local operating system on board that you can use if you don't want to plug a full computer into it.
Like... a smart monitor?
While not all of them are like that, Samsung has certainly already been making smart monitors for a while now.
Yea, sadly miracast seems to be cumbersome to implement, and not fast enough...
X11 still seems to be the way to go...
whew, thats the best webdesign i've seen in ages:
(not... if you mark the code to improve readability it completely vanishes ;-)
