Long ago back when self driving cars were a concept I was poking at the concepts. My limitations were always ALWAYS financially. And again the bug has bit me. I stare at my boring civic I again am bit by the lets make this car smart again.
However my plan this time is to go slow and responsible. My last attempt was always to go full blown ham. and in doing so the value and reliability of the car eventually diminishes to zero.
just like doing amperage and wattage calculations on a high-voltage service panel LED lighting needs to be held to the same structure.
It is extremely easy to overload a DC transformer with LED lights. Even though the amperage is on a much smaller-scale LEDs have a very low tolerance for under wattage.
If you suspect an 80 watt DC transformer for 95 Watts worth of LED lightingyou may not have catastrophic failure or none of the lights show up you might actually have weird strange independently symptomatic problems.
because even though you have a transformer bringing your voltage down every single LED bulb has an independent voltage stabilizer.
essentially a circuit that make sure that the LED can never get too much power
If you give a regulator circuit not enough power it goes into what's called swing lock the symptom is a blinking light that flickers.
It's perfectly okay to get an oversized transformer if you're only going to use 70 watts and you get a hundred you're not going to blow up LED lighting.
Has again every single light bulb that has a voltage stabilizer and a regulator however circuits will act strange if the power is not enough.
Listen I understand you're upset you been reading articles that say power meters are going to fry your brain 5G is killing babies.
these articles are unfortunate and most of them are filled with propaganda however we are surrounded by RF technology we are being irradiated daily with a multitude of RF technologies.
There are definitely arguments to both sides of the plane but unfortunately RF does have some type of risk based upon regulation this is also why we created the Federal communications commission or the FCC for short.
yes particular radio waves can cook your food and can also cook your brain if not regulated properly but most RF technologies emit some level of radiation based upon distance but this is also a misconception based upon the fear of nuclear radiation.
There is a huge difference between the two RS where nuclear energy is a self-powered cloud of radio energy there is no nuclear isotope in RF broadcast.
The energy is supplied by third-party I'm a transmission is purely a wave of energy that is been controlled.
5G is definitely coming and no it's not going to kill your children it will honestly do good more than it will do harmthink about it have you ever complained about your cell phone not working the internet being broken or how your calls are constantly being dropped?
a lot of that has to do with Central fixed point wireless which is what most cellular devices are.
Currently you will have hundreds of cell phones connected to one Cellular tower that solar tower is in charge of managing the data and expectation of every single phone within miles.
if you're looking for something to microwave your children ask them to climb one of those towers.5G intends to break that down instead of having one master broadcast tower they would break it down into smaller beehive like notes that way each device takes care of less phones in their proximity and by doing that they can then use a spider web effect to route your data through the fastest method.
Remember all that panic about smart meters that use the exact same technology your smart meter is nothing more than a Wi-Fi device it is not broadcasting cancer.
people say it's not Wi-Fi because that's technically true but if we're going to generalize it's absolutely Wi-Fi let's get really nerdy by saying typical Wi-Fi runs on the radio frequency 802.11 go smart meters run on the radio frequency 802.15 4 megahertz more than Wi-Fi that is not a measurement of more power that is of shift to the left.
your smart meter will then hook up to neighbors with your information to pass along know your neighbor doesn't get to see any type of personal data this information is useless to you.
Your power meter sends a encrypted file stating how much energy you have taken from the grid for that month and it will pop along all of the neighbors homes until it makes its way to a receiver which will then send it to the billing office.
this is an incredibly efficient technology because it gets rid of the need to pay for meter maids and the more we can cut that costs the cheaper we can make energy.
No granted not all smart meters are made the same some have been made with terrible design flaws and some of them have been made to outright undermine you as a consumer.
Some of them catch fire and burn houses down and some of them are Miss calibrated to where they read wrong. So because of this you have more have a chance to burn your house down with a smart meter than you are to contract cancer from its existence.
I know that statistics sucks but my point being implies heavily that there is no imminent danger I'm a tumor growing in your head because of a Wi-Fi device on the side of your house.
Radio frequency is everywhere it is all the same it just runs on different spectrum. Your key fob your garage door opener your Wi-Fi router your cell phone all these things broadcast different frequencies of the same thing.
there are studies that do show that radio can create cancer and they are studies that show that radio can kill cancer.
It all very much heavily depends on what frequency and what power you are running. and it's unfortunate however there is a large flux of ignorant people out therewho will scare you with incorrect propaganda does clouding the truth that most radio technology out there is a benefit to society not a burden
The age of the internet is upon us, internet speeds are getting much faster we're now presented with proper choices as far as media and we spend a lot more time on the Internet is opposed to television. we are finding our demand and need for streaming content through the internet to become more important than actual channels on the TV.
Comcast definitely knows this that's why they implemented the bandwidth cap long ago but yet told everybody that they weren't enforcing it even though they really are.
Typically a standard House of maybe three or four will burn roughly about 500 gigs a month.
homes with more kids and more games such as Netflix players and cell phones will easily breach 1000 gig cap per month.
Comcast knows this and it's charging people additional $50 for 500 gigs extra.
Comcast as of late has decided to start pushing most of it support calls to India who typically as a call center in India doesn't have much policing behind them as far as policy or good mannerism.
One tactic that the the third-party call centers are really fond of are transferring you to other call centers that are not related to Comcast whatsoever. these agents have been known to transfer you to places like the Michigan light and power or another type of call center that will quickly transfer you into some type of support queue so that way you can hold for long term and then talk to someone who will generically answer the phone saying support agent how can I help you or something along those lines which implies very heavily that Comcast researched how to get rid of people.
it used to be that you could take a cable box anywhere and people caught wind of that and started moving extra cable boxes to help supplement the bill by letting their sons and daughters take their TV box to college and plugged into the Comcast network.
once that became more widely known Comcast started deploying mocha reliant technologies which it made the device is absolutely useless if taken away from their Master box this definitely solved that problem but it certainly has given Comcast more reason to not like its customers.
in many towns and cities Comcast is typically the best decision even though they're the worst of evil they are no match to the contenders around them.
Most times you will find yourself with the option of DSL that can barely pull 15 megs or fixpoint Wi-Fi that costs an arm and a leg.
Comcast knows this and leverages the lack of care because of what they've lobbied over the decades the government absolutely help them become as evil as they are today.
So how do we fight back can we fight back and what do we do to fight back?
well there's a long-standing list of things that we can do to help ease the pain of Comcast because a lot of people would rather pull their teeth out with a old pair of pliers then to call Comcast.
I'll soon be compiling a list of things to do when you call Comcast to help keep you in control and better negotiate a bill that is more practical as Comcast being as evil as they are they also empower their agents to lie and threatened to keep costs down knowing this and knowing what a thority they do have and do not have over your life well help you keep your money down and their greedy hands out of your wallet.
we have to speculate and ask real-world questions such as this wi-fi network that they're building they're using our power from our homes to generate a mesh of Wi-Fi for their cell phone networks.
they are providing telephone numbers to us but are they using those numbers to call other people?
They are inviting themselves into our networks they are installing Wi-Fi systems within your home using a mesh system.
when you build a mesh system you also have a secondary effect of creating a wireless radar sensory system because all the wireless nodes are out there they are pinging to one another so one would have to ask the question is Comcast tracking our movement in the home with these systems?
personally I don't know this but I do ask these questions based upon the real capacity that they are providing themselves and I can't accuse of what I don't know but I can see the technology and I can also tell you how well it could be misused.
and when you have a company like Comcast can you really believe that they're going to do the right and honest thing at all times?
first and foremost most of the stuff is obvious however as they always say common sense is not as common as it should be.
1. ask the customer what their shoe policy is
some customers don't want you wearing shoes in their home and which point have booties ready or be prepared to take your shoes off.
2. Keep your footprints small
if you have a lot of work tools or things that you need to do the working their home make sure you keep it consolidated to one location that is out of the way and not intrusive.
3. walk the house with the customer
don't go into any room that they have an authorized you to be in or they haven't walked you through.
if you need to hunt something down or find something it's usually best to ask the customer first however if they're not interested make sure you tell them that you intend to look for a specific item or let them know ahead of time of your intention to roam around the house.
4. Don't Snoop
this is incredibly obvious but this is someone's home their personal space there's no good reason why you need to get into anything for any reason so don't do it.
5. Always give the customer the right of way
if you're working in a hallway or a path that is inconvenient the customer needs to get through give them that priority unless it's incredibly inconvenient for you and which point you can apologize but keep in mind that you're the invader in their home.
6. Stick to the work
the customer doesn't mind being social but keep in mind that the end of the day they're going to receive the bill if they think you chatted him up too much they make considered fighting the bill.
if they're insistent on wanting to have a conversation with you make sure that you look busy or are actually solving something while you talk with them.
7. Don't take pictures
you wouldn't want someone walking into your house and flashing up the camera so do the same courtesy to them don't take pictures of their home no matter how beautiful or how elegant the view is.
Privacy is very important to people including you.
8. Clean up after yourself
Nothing bugs people more than to clean up after someone else misses a true statement across-the-board no matter what you're in.
Be sure to have cleaning supplies potentially a vacuum if you're intending to make a mess.
10. This is really obvious but do good work.
You should always do work as if you're never going to need to come back. you should always wants to make sure that if someone comes back it might not be you so it's always good to leave information behind that helps the next person cuz you might find out that next person is you.
Generation upon generation of kids going to public schools are taught how to read how to write how to do basic arithmetic but the one thing they do not teach are finances and taxes.
I constantly ask myself why this is not taught. It's a fundamentally important trait among successful people. I myself not being so particularly good at this factor really wished I was taught early on the principle of money I mean importance of its existence within our system.
I wish I was taught early on how to balance a checkbook. How to foster a budget, the breakdown of what interest really is and how loans are prepared.
one of my biggest frustrations up today is we live in a contract driven society in which people are encouraged not to read the contract but the only sign at the bottom.
to be taught that when I am sold something the math must make sense one plus one must equal to if there's any obscurity or vagueness within the bottom line or the end total there's obviously a hidden factor.
we live in a capitalistic society in which everybody is out for monetary gain no not everybody is inherently evil towards that cause but it is best described as being incredibly efficient at getting the maximum amount of wealth.
Our public school system is training our children to be great employees. But not to be financially responsible critical thinkers.
Think about it raise your hand and wait your turn. This type of teaching and training makes you really good at standing in line at the DMV.
a idea that sending your kid to public education is enough to teach them everything they would need to succeed in the world. No granted it does teach a good chunk of very basic skills that are everyday required for this world.
They do not teach about a true entrepreneurial spirit. We have many people out there today could you clear that they are an entrepreneur because they have wonderful ideas and great vision. But truly lack financial responsibility.
I fully understand how hard it is I myself or not a perfect practice agent of what I'm preaching.
Responsibility to save is incredibly important. But it is unfortunate that saving alone while is a fantastic idea it all by itself will not a masi the richest you think it will. Unfortunately we have this creation of inflation and all inflation does is degrade the value of your savings.
The end game here is you should really be teaching your kids about money at the very most teach yourself and then teach them.
Okay the titles misleading in a little bit clicky.
there are many times where I've heard people under the statement I need an assistant when they feel overwhelmed. instead of denying them that opportunity to say such a thing by telling them I will never hire anybody.
it said The more productive question to ask is all right if you did get an assistant how could you keep that person busy for 8 hours?
If that person can properly articulate the need for such a position to be created and has the amount of effort required that can offset that person's work while retaining their own 8 hours and they may very well have a valid point.
But more often than not you'll find that most people who complain about this statement rarely are able to offset enough hours worth of duties to create a position. I'm in the most reality they're just looking to vent or need someone to express their feeling of being overwhelmed.
