HundreydAundre: All them styles are rotating out of standard.
atlr: i grew my hair long in college but didnt really know what to do with it. a ride in a jeep wrangler convinced me to get a haircut
NotCainNorAbel: @JarofGoats That is how my beard goes. Then I take it down for a while. I cannot stand to have my hair get long so I have never gotten to the neat part of long hair.

Rogue_07: Good evening, Ian and chat!
Rogue_07: Happy Thursday!
Rogue_07: Also train
hexy_lexy: Phantom Power? im more into ordinary Ghost Power :p
SnackPak_: so much gain needed for dynamic mics
Rogue_07: (that train might have been on my zoom call)
Nigouki: so this is for dynamics mics only? not condensers?
TehAmelie: is this some kind of game to you? lrrBEEJ
SkipIives: yeah, less gain needed and no phantom power to run.
SnackPak_: Nigouki correct as far as I know
Arclight_Dynamo: Hello all! Oh, that's the mic shadow on Ian's face. I thought he had a wicked shiner for a sec. :D
crowyote: @Arclight_Dynamo same, same
ewhac: You think Zoom is annoyed that the H4n turned out so good that nobody's bothered to upgrade?
DrakoniteStreams: therea48Wave
Mattmitchell45: Smooooth
TheMerricat: wow
Arclight_Dynamo: Ooh, buttery.
DrakoniteStreams: just got out of a meeting.. did I miss anything?
Rogue_07: warm
JessKay: oh that's a warm mic
TheMerricat: @drakonitestreams just a recap of the past episode :)
DrakoniteStreams: I less than three the h4n
DarkMorford: I have an H6, it's really nice
DrakoniteStreams: @TheMerricat was it "we tried to jfet but ended up jdidnt"?
NavelWarfare: Good news, friends! More internet hugs have arrived! All you need do is ask!
ewhac: :-)
TheMerricat: @drakonitestreams pretty much
SnackPak_: lrrFINE
Arclight_Dynamo: Oh, nice!
SnackPak_: magic!
SkipIives: nice
TheMerricat: so was that a successful test of our preamp?
RandomTrivia: R I C H E R than before
wedge_x: and now, the weather
Nigouki: which Rode mic is that?
ewhac: So, to be clear: The phantom power from the H4n is powering your preamp, not the mic itself?
TheMerricat: @ewhac exactly
johnalogue: whose voice do you normally hear in your head, Ian?
UWDJohn: You've essentially increased you dynamic range, which has benefits for signal-to-noise performance, etc.
johnny: I am also sick of hearing my own voice in my head.
TheMerricat: I assumed everyone heard Morgan Freeman...
RandomTrivia: @johnny The evergreen 2021 mood
Nigouki: so this does work for condensers, or is it just the Rode that can work with this?
johnalogue: "Sodder?" Ian, you've betrayed the title!
iris_of_ether: Ooh, tuned in just in time for Schematic(tm)
ewhac: (I wonder if I can simulate that circuit in Spice?)

Nigouki: does anyone still have the link to the page where this diagram is from?
TheMerricat: @ewhac in case you missed the first episode where we were dealing with this I am actually pulled down the schematic from the internet and you can see it on there if it helps any
DrakoniteStreams: @johnalogue fun fact: a lot of people don't hear a voice in their head
johnalogue: could be worse, it could be ugly as TAN or COS
TheMerricat: @ewhac though be aware that we did find out there was a typo in it where we had a line swapped in the actual diagram
johnalogue: @johnalogue what?!
TehAmelie: oh i think sin is the worst part of the triangle
TheMerricat: I am = Ian with crappy phone keyboard
Arclight_Dynamo: @johnalogue It's true. Hank Green says he thinks in... bloopy shapes? Makes no sense to me.
Nigouki: i'm very curious because I have a bunch of garage sale Sony ECM-220 Condenser mics, and they do take a AA battery, but they only have a two wire cable instead of 3
TehAmelie: i often think in written words
Nigouki: so I'm wondering if I need a completely different solution or might this work if I just go a bit upsteam inside the mic
SnackPak_: Nigouki if the mics don't need phantom power from another device, I think this circuit would work
Cjcaesar subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 26 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Cjcaesar! (Today's storm count: 91)
DrakoniteStreams: they can't need phantom power, nor can they be electret or other mics that need a voltage bias I think
Cjcaesar: What is he making?
Gamerinterface: Hey look a cribbage board
ewhac: This looks like Ian's schematic:
TheMerricat: @cjcaesar we are cleaning up the design that we created last time and setting things up so that if we want to make many of these we can without a lot of the fuss that we did last time
Nigouki: ah, the ECM-220 does say it's an electret condenser mic so I guess I'll need a different solution after all

TheMerricat: @cjcaesar and specifically it's a preamp for mics
Cjcaesar: Ok
Arclight_Dynamo: "Twitchy" must mean something, yes.
Fruan: My goal is always to learn 2 new things. Not per day. Just total.
DrakoniteStreams: shmutz on the leads?
ewhac: Oh yeah, how's your multimeter behaving now?
LordZarano: I suppose we'll find out soon if "Twitchy" has any effect
ewhac: Marco Reps' channel has been rather quiet during the Lost Year...
DrakoniteStreams: eevblog and I agree on exactly one thing: probemaster are sexy probes
Texan_Reverend: Good afternoon, Ian!
DarkMorford: Hey Texan
Texan_Reverend: Looking forward to seeing how the soldering irons compare.
DrakoniteStreams: what was your iron before the hakko?
Texan_Reverend: Hey @darkmorford
Texan_Reverend: Greetings, chatfolk.
LordZarano: Ooh, pine-scented soldering iron. Fancy
ritchards: two soldering irons will enter... one will leave! ... then the other will leave, because you just don't leave soldering irons lying about.
DarkMorford: I'm mostly a Weller guy, myself
Texan_Reverend: Having arrived slightly late, are we making the in-line phantom powered type of mic preamp or a powered box preamp?
Arclight_Dynamo: @DarkMorford Ah. A Wellerman, if you will. Popular, these days. Kappa
DrakoniteStreams: ah, ok, for some reason I thought it might have been a TS-80. I've heard the pinecil is apparently just below the TS-100/TS-80 in quality, but only seen one review so far
Texan_Reverend: Excellent!
iris_of_ether: @Arclight_Dynamo I was thinking it :D
LordZarano: @DarkMorford soon may you come, to bring us solder and tea and rum
DrakoniteStreams: It's hard to just from just one review of couse
DrakoniteStreams: *course
DrakoniteStreams: *judge
DrakoniteStreams: I carrot type tonight
DarkMorford: @Arclight_Dynamo ... I must be missing something here
Arclight_Dynamo: @DarkMorford "Wellerman" was the sea shanty that got super popular a few months ago.
Arclight_Dynamo: Is pun.
DarkMorford: Ah.
Texan_Reverend: Such an in-line preamp combined with a Shure SM-57 or one of its clones with a good foam wind/pop filter cover makes for a near SM7b sound profile. It's one of my favorite streaming mic setups at the moment.
SkipIives: so if this goes well is the next one a transformer buffered 12AX7 tube pre with phantom power?
ritchards: black and white and red all over?
DrakoniteStreams: I need to go take care of dinner. Please don't accidentally the whole thing while I'm gone
TehAmelie: what about the thing on purpose?
ewhac: @SkipIives Oh, sure, let's spend 100W just on the filaments... :-)
LurkerSpine: "Where's your pins at"
ewhac: "More input, Stephanie...."
UWDJohn: That's right, I remember that now.
johnalogue: if Ian was a killer robot that went rogue all along we'd never know
LordZarano: My pin? That'd be 7181 KappaPride
TheMerricat: remember there was a typo in the original schematic that we found and was labeled only in the forum posts

DarkMorford: And yet somehow it works great.
fmerl: wiring things completely incorrectly: the main way of discovering new amp topologies
TheMerricat: I mean it works so can it be wired that incorrectly? lrrBEEJ
Arclight_Dynamo: Ah, it's like that Atari 2600 game that no one can figure out why the code works.
ewhac: @Arclight_Dynamo That's *all* 2600 games.

DarkMorford: 22K would be red-red-orange, as I recall
m4j0rchris: man i havent seen a lrr stream in like a year
SkipIives: @SkipIives @ewhac yeah the high voltage those things need always made me wary.
m4j0rchris: what is ian up to
ewhac: "I don't always work with a breadboard, but when I do..."
TheMerricat: @m4j0rchris well we were going to make another preamp by using the existing one we made previously but we've suddenly come up with a suspicion that we wired the original completely incorrectly
DrakoniteStreams: oh hey, twitch chat works way better if I type the right url
m4j0rchris: its major chris NotLikeThis
DrakoniteStreams: dinner is cleaned up, did I miss any accidentallying?
Arclight_Dynamo: You know what would make a fun TTSF? "Ian teaches basics by learning them." Like, a whole episode on trying to solder a good lineman's splice. Call it "Can't Solder Horses Club."
m4j0rchris: twitch do be all lowercase for some reason
SnackPak_: lrrWOW Arclight_Dynamo

DarkMorford tries to find the transistor socket for his DMM
UWDJohn: no pin of the fet should be at ground
ritchards: is the internet not at a state where we can be sure we can find a correct schematic?
ewhac: @ritchards Yes, and a frick-ton of wrong ones.
UWDJohn: Ian, you need rotate 90 degrees. The letters are all connected together at each number
ewhac: Uh, Ian... I think you're misconceptualizing which directions the breadboard pins connect...
NotCainNorAbel: i agree ewhac
corefluxx: they go horizontaly
DrakoniteStreams: yep
JessKay: yeah, power lines go across the board, all other lines go down the board
Juliamon: Good job chat! You were right for once
LurkerSpine: time to rotate the cushions
ewhac: "Ever forward..."
DarkMorford: At least we caught it before we applied power. :p
SkipIives: at least you figured that out now
majorchris_: we live and learn
TheMerricat: we found one last stream with a single line swap caveat. but Ian tried to recheck the amp he made against it and doesn't think it matches now
Arclight_Dynamo: @Juliamon Hey now! That hasn't been proven yet. Kappa
ewhac: AFK...
LordZarano: and yet they labelled them "abcde fghij"
RealGamerCow: I don't quite understand what he's doing on the breadboard, but can google it.
JessKay: I mean, they labeled the columns too, just not *all* of them
JessKay: (every 5th it looks like)
ritchards: I don't even know what schematic to look for...
DrakoniteStreams: I get paid to know what I'm doing. The trick is to be good at pretending.
DarkMorford: Ian, do we need to schedule a refresher on schematics for you? Kappa
UWDJohn: it's Drain for what it's worth, not Dump. Though Dump is funnier.
ritchards: we can call it a Feed Dump!
Lord_ZYRK: For flushing electrons lrrGARBO
DarkMorford: Supply, Dump, and Get-in-there? :D
ewhac: The markings are clearly for recording connections -- "Place a wire from B-22 to F-18..."
TheMerricat: @ritchards Ian's schematic:
DarkMorford: @ewhac You sank my battleship!
LurkerSpine: you do have another ground
majorchris_: welp im off to play dnd
majorchris_: good luck with your board that doesnt look like bread
Arclight_Dynamo: I don't know why they don't mark that ON TOP of breadboards.
NotCainNorAbel: perfect breadboard. start off with making everything pretty and then have wires everywhere with a post-it that says 'don't touch' with a wire through it
ritchards: throw the rest of the breadboard too!
DarkMorford: @NotCainNorAbel I've never been able to figure out how people can breadboard stuff and have all their wires exactly the right length and with perfect 90-degree angles. Madness.
ewhac: That's called spending too much on pre-cut wires.
LordZarano: Big Clive did a teardown of a cheap breadboard that had non-continuous + & - rails. Could make for lots of confusing problems
LadyAiluros: Then you are Woz
UWDJohn: Hairpin style connections are useful too.
DrakoniteStreams: @DarkMorford ben eater recently had a video where he explains how he does it
NotCainNorAbel: I have to believe that is round 2 @DarkMorford
DrakoniteStreams: @LordZarano the trick on those is the red/blue lines are not contiguous either. they show where the break is
LordZarano: @DrakoniteStreams Not on the one Big Clive tore down!
corefluxx: Ian, you are not the worst scientist. The worst scientist is Thomas Midgley Jr. He is responsible for leaded gasoline and Freon, and invented a pully system for hospital bed patients to be able sit up by themselves that he ultimately got entangled in himself while using and choked to death.
NotCainNorAbel: freon is fine as long as it stays contained. unfortunately...
johnalogue: Lead *was* and still is (in aviation piston engines) an effective anti-knock agent
johnalogue: the worst scientists study autism.
DrakoniteStreams: Lead was only useful as an antiknock agent because the other options (which worked better) were patented

SnackPak_: always be crimping, except once, no exceptions
ewhac: Pfah. When was the last time you crimped your own Cat.6 keystone?
DrakoniteStreams: @LordZarano indeed. I've read the book he based his bread board cpu on, and basically all the content is straight from the book, but he presents it in a way that is 100x more digestible and interesting
corefluxx: I haven't crimped coax in years
ShadyLantern: watching and listening to this is quite soothing, i gotta say
NotCainNorAbel: I had to crimp coax for a job, so many metal threads in the seat cushion.
DarkMorford: Crimp ALL the wires!
SnackPak_: FBtouchdown FBtouchdown FBtouchdown
LordZarano: Reading about the things that Thomas Midgley did to promote the "safety" of leaded gasoline really cements the view that he only cared about reputation & profit. Not about actually helping people/the world

DrakoniteStreams: hi cori, owner of the stolen cable
Ballistic_Meatball: I think it does
Manae: I think it holds up
ewhac: Everything was stolen and replaced with an exact replica.
TheGamingWard: you absolutely should watch it
LurkerSpine: I heard the last season was a let down, but I haven't watched it myself
LordZarano: Can one ever have enough xlr cables in one's house?

Texan_Reverend: Samurai Jack definitely holds up.
Nigouki: oh yeah, did you finish up Diebuster?
ewhac: @LordZarano One could ask the same question of USB cables...
LordZarano: @ewhac Very true
TehAmelie: the moonbase itself, of course, can't be broken from its orbit
Texan_Reverend: I love how much it allows stories the time to breathe. It's not afraid of extended times without action or words.
TheGamingWard: but does that cancel out to mean it's the right tool?
Manae: @LurkerSpine The last season was fine. It was just a very melancholy ending

Arclight_Dynamo: @MaladyDark I must try this.
MaladyDark: yes. chicken salt on fat, twice fried hot chips.
MaladyDark: Australia really broke down with the fries/chips/crisps thing
TehAmelie: <innocent child voice> don't the chickens need their salt?
MaladyDark: yes. the chickens do need thier salt. gods. eating poached chicken breasts with no salt or fat or anything... nothing is scarier in a kitchen than a middle aged woman on a health-kick diet
TehAmelie: ha, you haven't seen medium rare chicken then?
MaladyDark: i have. thankfully not in person.
ewhac: Ducking out to watch Checkpoint...
TehAmelie: on reflection, salmonella might be better than eating unseasoned chicken
DrakoniteStreams: I had medium rare chicken once... and then no chicken for 5 years
MaladyDark: i did once see an advertisement for a kitchen blowtorch. that was talkign about how you could just sear the fat and serve your bacon rare. with a piece of Eye bacon.
MaladyDark: just becuase it's cured doesn't mean you don't need to cook it.
johnalogue: chicken isn't rare it's absurdly common
LordZarano: wtf is "Eye bacon"
TehAmelie: riddle: if smoking is so bad, why does it cure salmon?
MaladyDark: short-cut bacon. the bit thats not the long rasher
MaladyDark: middle bacon is the rasher and the eye altogether
kingsandheros: shocking time...
MaladyDark: headphones adjusted away from ears.
MaladyDark: no RIPS for me
MaladyDark: we can hear you!
MaladyDark: excellent
serramarkov: Woo - hoo!
Shiralicia: do a hot tub stream for big money
LurkerSpine: Just move to Ohio, get vaccinated, and win the lottery
TehAmelie: cat in a suit meme: i should get a lot of money
MungoDude: I should buy a laboratory
MaladyDark: I am just waiting for a desk of my own
MaladyDark: one with lots of drawers
TehAmelie: honestly, i SHOULD get a lot of money. released the remaster of my book yesterday
MungoDude: 3rd row is white not red
DarkMorford: I kinda want to try building a desk, actually. Just need a few more tools and a wood shop. >_>

corefluxx: Hot child in the city by Nick Glider
MungoDude: holy solder hole batman
SnackPak_: lrrFINE
TehAmelie: if we could pirate that incredible metal bonding glue Apple uses "only" to put their logo on their products, you think that would revolutionize soldering?
corefluxx: A bridge too far!
MungoDude: more flux
ewhac: Grab the Soldapullt.
MAPBoardgames: !advice
LRRbot: Make an honest moral inventory of yourself.
TehAmelie: at 4 in the morning? bold, Lrrbot
MAPBoardgames: That's when I do it.
mechasully: ehh a bonding agent would be the bane of self repair
mechasully: uncritical support for whoever steals that industry secret though
TehAmelie: mm-hmm
MungoDude: still bridged
corefluxx: oh it is
mechasully: yes
Arclight_Dynamo: I'm also not sure that last solder you did was good. It looks like a dry socket.
MungoDude: ^
TehAmelie: we went too hot and too messy
MungoDude: an awkward angle perhaps
SnackPak_: no one's going to look in the box, it's fine
Arclight_Dynamo: Ian has, as it is technically known, "Hecked the Dingo."
hexy_lexy: this just in, ian fires himself Kappa
DarkMorford: Now imagine if these JFETs were in an SOT-23 package :p
TheDailyMapleSyrup: Your better at this then I am
dougma: have any braid?
TehAmelie: i admire these bold attempts, though. i've been dreading to poke at a mere photoshop painting all day
MungoDude: can we braid from the outer edge?
SnackPak_: lrrHORN lrrHORN lrrHORN
MungoDude: oh good
ritchards: No Bridge *weep woop*
TehAmelie: we are disabridged
MungoDude: choppy choppy snip snip
MungoDude: yes very neat
DarkMorford: The bigger the blob, the better the job Kappa
LordZarano: I was about to suggest using one of the cutoffs to bridge ground
MungoDude: smooth
ewhac: Ugliest? Dude, you should see some of the Radio Shack P-Box kits I put together as a kid...
LordZarano: Surely stripping is against TOS
LordZarano: lrrDOTS
iris_of_ether: lrrDOTS
Arclight_Dynamo: Are there "prettiest hand-soldering" enthusiasts? Because it seems to me that's gotta be a thing.
ewhac: What't the visual version of ASMR?
TehAmelie: there should be solderers precision throwing red hot solder from metal cups, like how the iron smiths do in that one Chinese village
Arclight_Dynamo: Ah! Okay, that makes me happy. :D
DarkMorford: Ooh, a LRL segment?
Arclight_Dynamo: Is it speed-soldering? Soldering for beauty? Soldering for efficiency?
Arclight_Dynamo: I need to know the categories of competition! :D
ritchards: a bridge over troubled solder...
TehAmelie: (they throw molten iron like fireworks and it's amazing)
ewhac: "Competition solder" yields a few promising results on YooToob.
Simonark: An LRL improv with molten metal section, called Soldering Irony seems inexorable now.
SnackPak_: A linux/open source conference I go to does a soldering competition. It starts with through-hole then moves on to smaller and smaller surface mount parts
ewhac: @SnackPak_ Which conference?
SnackPak_: SCaLE in Socal
Arclight_Dynamo: See, the competition I'd like to see is "Here's a circuit diagram. Make it work, make it beautiful. You have four weeks."
DarkMorford: Does that include sourcing the parts? :p
zebrashark3: I caught a live TTSF! Yay!
Arclight_Dynamo: @DarkMorford I was thinking that everyone gets a bag of parts. But now that I think about it for more than half a second, I see the problems with that.
ewhac: A brilliant electronics engineer used to interview applicants by sitting them down at a test bench with a wire-wrap board and say, "Here. It's broken. Fix it," and then watch how they work.
ewhac: @DarkMorford Not this year. I'm hearing about 60-week lead times for voltage regulators...
TehAmelie: i want a movie where the heroes have to defuse a bomb and when they open up the circuit board it's just a solid block of solder and they can do nothing
iris_of_ether: Yeah, lead times for parts right now are BAD
TehAmelie: or, it's so messily soldered it can't be undone
DarkMorford: @TehAmelie Worse, it's covered in that black crap you sometimes see on PCBs to hide what chip they used.
TehAmelie: hehe
Fruan: And then the timer runs out and it doesn't go off, because it turns out the bomber connected it wrong.
ewhac: @DarkMorford Potted epoxy.
ewhac: EEs everywhere are re-designing boards based on which parts they can get quickly.
Arclight_Dynamo: TTSF idea: Ian thinks about what aspects of third hands he doesn't like, and designs a third hand he would use.
kenny_roberts84: Did you gooch it?
ewhac: Use the needlenose!
kenny_roberts84: Bigger the blob the better the job
ritchards: it's all fluxxed...
LordZarano: I saw a nice design for a third hand a while ago that used coolant feed lines as the arms
ritchards: just create a line of solder, it'll do the same thing ;)
ewhac: Get more of the side of the tip involved.
Arclight_Dynamo: @LordZarano Oh, I've seen those!
MungoDude: now that's a glob
ewhac: Bridge check!
Arclight_Dynamo: ^
Basic_Human_Decency: use ventilation those fumes will kill you
Arclight_Dynamo: I more worry that the big 'ol blob o' solder is bridged with the connection directly opposite the black wire.
LordZarano: I too worry that the black is bridged to the yellow to its left
Fruan: A very long break. 2 weeks or so.
Juliamon: Ever forward, learning after two years or so
MungoDude: we wouldn't want a continuity error on this show
SnackPak_: lrrHORN lrrHORN lrrHORN
serramarkov: Yay!!!
