Half my house, like right down middle is suddenly having power problems. The right side appliances and lights are barely on, and the electronics are turning on and then off. Other side of house is fine along with the overhead lights.

Any idea? I have no experience with electrical work. Ignore the picture.

Are there any legal issues with getting a USB/PCI-e LTE adapter for my home router (pfSense box) and building a huge fucking antenna to turn it into a fixed-WISP style client device? I'm thinking of doing this since I have unlimited cell data and Comcast sucks goat vomit through a bendy straw. Picture somewhat related.

"Unlimited cell data" and unlimited cell data are often two very different things. Your connection's gonna get throttled to almost nothing pretty quick unless you have some arcane grandfathered-in plan.
>>
>>935745
I'm mostly nocturnal so even if I was tethering at line rate for six hours a day it wouldn't cause significant network congestion. I've telecommuted a ten hour shift via tethering before with no throttling. My plan does include unlimited data with no throttling.

My fucking glasses.png
1 MB,
How do I fix my glasses in a way that doesn't cost too much money and doesn't completely look like shit? When I was wiping my glasses off with a towel on of the pads that sits between my nose and the frame broke off, and now I constantly have a piece of my glasses poking into my nose. I can alleviate it by placing some paper between that part of my nose and the tiny sharp bit coming out, but I look like an asshole, so I normally just grin and bear it. It seems nigh impossible to remove, and I've spent a good several minutes with a sharp knife trying to remove...

You mean I should break them BOTH off, and then use this compound to bind them back to the glasses so that they're both attached and they both look the same?

It's a fucking shitload of current. Think about a 120V solenoid. As beefed up and torque-y as they get, you could still push it in with your hand. You want something that would mechanically latch into place.

First of all, describe the problem.

Does it not receive power at all?
Does it power up but a specific part doesn't get power?
Does it all appear to function but output no audio signal?

Also, btw, if could diagnose the problem with my car that'd be great.

45 KB,
Any of you tube guys ever heard of this? The wiki article for evacuation tip (the little wiggly bit on the ends of tubes) mentions something called a "glasshacker", which are apparently people who ...hack vacuum tubes? Is this a real thing? Because I've never heard of it before, and it doesn't seem to be mentioned anywhere else on the internet.

It's sometimes done in nixies tubes.
You swap out the gas inside it and they change the colour of the glow, since most nixies ionize the gas around the filament to get the glow.
So you swap it out for lets say argon and you get a blueish white glow.
I've never seen anyone do it but it's possible.

>>940911
it specifies nixies for these glasshackes.
so no vaccuum tubes, just gas excitation lamps and displays.

cool idea though.

So buy a battery box? Should it be ok in the bin I have it in now if I strap it down in my trunk? If so, should I put wood under it? I was always told to do that if I'm putting a battery on the floor. Maybe it's just a myth
>>
>>940852
What is a battery box for?

Here's the deal: you put a disc inside your PSX, push power, the disc starts spinning and the laser reads the disc. The data it reads is transmitted through the ribbon cable.

How can I log the data that goes through to a file? see pic

I want to know what data is exactly transferred to the console from the disc reader unit so I can program a loader to an embedded system to do that for me.

The end game is to completely get rid of the disc reader unit and replace it with a rpi zero or similar that shoots the corresponding data through an identical ribbon cable to the system.

tldr I'm trying to trick the system to thinking there's a disc drive while in reality the data comes from an SD card.
