Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

From yesterday:

- 5x Toner and 2x drums for my Brother HL-2270DW ($5 per, $35 for all). 3rd party... but at the price I don't care. Doubt I'll ever need toner or drums for it ever again; it's my...

Re: ESR 0.6Ω capacitance -15% absolute must change?

All of my Ablecom/Supermicro Hot swaps setups (which I'm pretty sure is the same standard as his) are just a 5VSB and (if memeory serves) a single massive 12V main rail. The hot swap "bridge" steps...

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

Ended up using it to retire a less than useful Laserjet 4L (which I was using with a Jetdirect 500x)... Dimensionally it's close enough to the 4L that it happens to fit on the bottom of my garage...

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

Yep. Other than being slow and only having 150 pages, nothing wrong with it. Full toners, heck the tray was half full of paper :wtf:

Worst part is if it's at the outlet, that means a regular...

Re: Lenovo T440s Replacement Headphone Jack source?

I did try contact cleaner... to no avail. I ended up replacing it with a T460s (so I could afford to take this one offline to service the jack).

Lenovo T440s Replacement Headphone Jack source?

Tore town my Lenovo T440s to see if I could find a compatible 3.5mm headphone jack... No dice. Very common failure from what I've seen online.

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

Scored a Logitech Performance MX mouse for $0.99. Paired it to a spare unifying reciever I had sitting, works great... but the jury's out on the battery (rechargable AA NiMH, easy to replace).

Re: Why does my truck have a microphone in it?

Looks like a really crappy dealer-installed "security" device. Idea being that interfaces with the ignition switch wiring and you have to have the black plug installed for it to start. But, these...

Re: [Stupid Question #2] Why we are still using 12v on the ATX power source?

24V works great in my world. Pretty much *the* standard for industrial controls wiring (PLCs, automation, etc.).
