As far and wide as the eye can see.

SCCA is the better sanctioning body.

The idea of  a mobile phone service were first applied to trains.  In the mid 1920’s on some German trains there were phones for the passengers.  This prompted the imagination of a German Cartoonist shown below.

The first “Car Phone” that I am aware of, that is, a full duplex two way radio that required no training to use, was in Franklin Roosevelt’s limousine.  When the President picked up the handset, the White House switchboard responded.  When the White House wanted to call the car, the switchboard routed the call.

Mobile car phones, due to the limited number of channels in each location, were stupidly expensive to acquire and use. 

The concept of cell phones were demonstrated by Bell Labs in 1947.  The thought behind them is that rather than one huge powerful central transponding station for all the mobile phones in a location, there would be numerous low powered station across the location so that a car at one end could be on the same frequency as one on the other end.  A car drove around and the call was switched from station to station relatively seamlessly.  This proved the concept, but could not be exploited because the equipment to do this was ungainly.  What was needed was in the future, computers.

The first “Cell Phones” were designed for cars and consisted of a handset in the front seat and a big box of “junk” (computers, radio link and the like) in the trunk.

Kerry Von Erich would hand me my jock strap. 

For real, he worked in the "cage" in the Physical Education Department at the University of Houston under Hofheinz Pavilion.

11  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Is there any bigger circle jerk than Audiophiles on: July 03, 2014, 03:01:28 AM
Some points on Stereo systems:

Speaker wire: 14-16 awg is all you need and should not cost more than 10-20 dollars for 50 to 100 feet.  Radio Shack speaker wire is fine.

Bi and tri-amping:  This can be worthwhile. The concept is that a power amplifier creates the most distortion when it is amplifying the highest and lowest frequencies at the same time.  So you insert in the chain between the pre amplifier and the power amplifier an "active crossover" which splits off the lows and sends it to it's own separate power amplifier.  This is "Bi-amping" .  If you also do it for the mid-range as well, it's called "Tri-amping." Where the low, mid range, and high frequencies each have their own power amplifiers.
Some will argue that seems like overdoing it. You should consider that power amplifiers are now available as an integrated circuit the size of a human hand.

100 watts

This segues into.....

Sub-woofers: The wavelengths of sounds that the woofers handle are so long that most people cannot stereophonically "locate" them.  This is due to the fact that compared with the distance between your ears the long wavelengths have insufficient timing differences for most to locate the sound image.  So the rationale is to have the active crossover "sum" the lows from the left and right sides into one signal, send them into one power amplifier, and rather than have two woofers, have one really big one.

The next two are always good to make people angry.

Phonograph records versus CD:
 I should preface this with the fact I have turntables, tape recorders(open reel and cassette) at home.  I consider phonograph records like fine books.  Wonderful packages to look at, and it is fun to watch a record player work.  It is the same with tapes.

But at no time do I delude myself into saying LPs and Tapes are better than CDs.  No matter how you show the mathematics of the analogue to digital process, or the result of lab tests, there are imbeciles (nice imbeciles, but imbeciles nonetheless) who will argue that LPs are superior to CDs.  

Vacuum tubes (valves) versus solid state:
I can repair tube circuits.  In high school shop I built (from scratch, not a kit) an FM stereo system out of vacuum tubes. I have restored old systems.
Solid state is better than tubes.

The best speakers:
Klipschorns without question...they must however, to work properly, be put solidly in the corners of a room.

Klipschorns!! I can’t afford them.

Progressive resistance exercise every other day. This allows joints to recover. On the days with no weights, do cardio instead.

Also good to throw in one day a week with no exercise at all.

Slight sore throat yesterday, so I decided not to train.  Glad I didn't train yesterday or today because now I have body/joint aches like you would not believe... my neck, knees and low back are killing me... lethargic and dizzy as fuck.  No other symptoms... weird.

I'm eating raw garlic hoping to knock this shit out fast.

Hope you guys don't get this.

My experience and understanding is that with monitoring by a doctor and the proper ancillaries it is not especially hazardous.  

  • Periodic blood work
  • Controlling cholesterol with medications
  • Finasteride to check prostate hyperplasia and alopecia
  • Prostate tests

So now when a kid skips class, it's the fault of the school if the kid gets hurt while skipping class?  
Well, yes.
This was true even when I was in elementary school.  
From when the child leaves home to when he returns home and crosses the threshold, he is the responsibility of the school.

I am a lawyer by profession it is hard to see where culpability rests with BMW. It is dickheads taking cases like this that lead to safety notices spoiling every surface you can see.
In this instance the son was responsible (or irresponsible), BMW notified the system in manual (should they have a sign about every feature plastered everywhere around car?). In what way was BMW negligent or irresponsible such that it caused harm?

It's also a 1997 BMW...but, why would there be a need to over-ride the lock from the inside? Unless someone kidnapped you and locked the doors and took the key with them.

Excuse me, but you are both cognitively viscous.  That is a serious design flaw in that car. An error on the same level  of the exit doors of the Cocoanut Grove opening inwards.  On the same level of the Citi Building in New York City.

I once moved into a house where a walk in closet had no doorknob on the inside.  I immediately went to a hardware store and replaced the door hardware.

So someone designed a container that a person cannot open from the inside?

Well what could possibly go wrong with that?
