excuse me what

I’ve been spending three hours figuring out the pin outs of the Intersil 429100 and the LCD on an early-1980s Fluke D800 (mil-spec 8020A from what I can tell). I have 5 pages and I can almost replace the long dead screen with an LED or VFD based replacement, LED being far easier, VFD being far cooler looking. When I finish I’ll put the info online so anybody else as stupid as I am can do this with ease.

When I die, I want to be reincarnated as a machine spirit haunting a crappy inkjet printer to torment the living.

Playing my Game Boy Pocket on an hour long bus trip. Should be interesting to see how long it’ll last on the batteries, since I don’t remember putting them in there...

My 1997 Camry is about to hit 145K miles! Pretty impressive. Not the distance but the fact I own a 20 year old Toyota Camry with less than 200K miles on it

Let's play a game, to help some of 's newcomers to make connections: in your name subjects and topics that interest you but aren't in your profile, as tags so they are searchable. Then boost this post or repeat its instructions so others know to do the same.
