    CBS/MY44 out of sync after 9 PM. JakesDTVBlog may want to read this

    Jake and anyone in the Tri-state (Owensboro/Evansville) markets. MY44 (CBS 44.2) after 9PM is always out of sync. i can only describe it as the video and audio are out of phase. the lips move a few seconds after the audio is heard, like trying to watch a Youtube video on an older computer. it's...

    Not technically 'electronics' it is vintage!

    Another score i found. not too surprised it still works but it has to be the cutest thing ever. i believe it is from the 1960s by the styling of it but it's a Hotpoint brand Porta-Cool A/C unit. the smallest window A/C i have ever seen! (never even seen a new one this tiny, although i was...

    I do not like the new format and look

    I've been gone longer than i thought. is there any way possible to restore the look and feel of this forum to the way it was 1 year ago? when it was faster? i can barely do anything anymore, and the site takes longer to load on a 1GHz machine than Facebook would on a 486DX

    Downgraded to Windows 98 SE

    Yes, my Linux amazement died off when i found out that Facebook games such as Cafe World eat up tons of RAM and the only browser that works on Linux is mozilla-based versions such as Firefox and Iceweasel and i was finding every single one including Opera were eating 110MB of my 256MB of RAM to...

    Awesome gadgets of the '70s

    I've fallen in love with the gadgets of the '70s...i cannot explain it. maybe it's because most of 'em started the tech fads of the 1980s which further primed the boom of computers and the internet as we know it today? Maybe it is because various electronics, such as TVs, Microwaves, Stoves...

    why was 'solid state' on old appliances?

    Looking at my home full of 1970s appliances/electronics i see a label that i find funny. but i wonder why it was plastered all over them? 'Solid-state' It's on every one. even twice on some. why? Was it really that much of a selling point to tell customers their electronics didn't have tubes...
