Re: Beta testers wanted...

Thanks for testing... Yep you're right - all of those are issues, mostly deliberate. If you take a look at the source code (by clicking "developer" and creating a new game based on that one), you'll see the source code has been designed for simplicity rather than functionality. I want to u...

Beta testers wanted...

I've made a site which lets users play online games in realtime, while at the same time also letting advanced users redesign the games with minimal effort. At the moment, it's all at the prototype stage, but since you lot are creative coders, some of you might be able to make something cool on a sat...

Re: Computer operations affecting headphone background noise

Most likley cause is it makes noise approximately proportional to the RAM throughput. Sending data to and from ram involves a large quantity of reasonably long non twisted pair data lines, which can easily couple signals into other lines. While the frequency on these lines is way higher than audible...

Re: Bluetooth power consumption

I expect power use would go from 1 to 3 in that order (max to min). Sending more data at a time is better in terms of power use per unit time where bytes per unit time on average is constant, since you avoid the extra packet start-end overhead. For larger transfers you avoid connection setup and pul...

Re: Car AC suddenly stopped working

Are you sure it comes and goes? could it just be some of the refrigerant has leaked out and it's working just not very well - ie. it cools the air, but not by much?

Re: PSU Decision

The power rating of a PSU should be taken with a pinch of salt anyway - most manufacturers lie about it. I would buy the PSU, test it with the normal load plus a bit more (a 12 volt 60 watt car headlight bulb is a good load for the 12 volt power lines). If it works with the extra load, then you're p...

Re: Modern computing vs Biology

To summarize: Brain: more neurones - hence more parallel CPU: More frequency - hence more calculation throughput per processing unit per second. Brain: Unpredictable - errors\failures are common and tolerated CPU: Deterministic - Errors are catastrophic (ie. usually cause complete failure of a task)...

Re: Headset: One speaker not working

Usually the wire is broken,. either at the connector or at the headphone end. It's very unlikely to fail in the middle somewhere unless there's a knot. Fixing them can be a pain, because often the connector is moulded onto the wire so you can't remove it. If it's the connector end, it's often easier...

Re: how easy is it to damage a lithium battery?

For most consumer laptops it is MYTH that they shouldn't be left on charge continuously. The battery controller will spot that the battery is full and stop charging, and hence as far as the battery is concerned it is now disconnected. the laptop will run from the AC power supply and no charge will f...
