Those Britons have designed some real gems. This Jaguar was also my favorite car in the 90s and early 2000 years. It’s a monster but still a great car for the daily use on the streets. The Saleen S7 looks not much different.

How about this rascal:

Bei diesem Gumpert Apollo handelt es sich um das Fahrzeug, welches anlässlich der Ausstellung auf dem Genfer Autosalon 2009 als absolutes Einzelstück gefertigt wurde. Dieses Fahrzeug hat am 13.08.2009 auf der Nordschleife einen Rundenrekord aufgestellt für straßenzugelassene Fahrzeuge mit einer Zeit von 7:11,57 Minuten. Der Apollo ist umfangreich dokumentiert. Es wurde

well, that bumper looks like ‘rascal’ haha i  don’t even know that brand so i just googling and this one is kind of interesting tho.

With twin-turbo Audi power and a claimed top speed of 224 mph, this thing means business.

A lot of excellent car manufacturers out there, but the Jaguar XJ220 will always be a timeless classic.

on April 6, 2019

absolutely.

The funny part is, I liked to play Gran Turismo 2/3 (PS2) and I also used often the Jaguar aside of many more great cars. Now, all those cars evolved to oldtimers or  classic cars which increased their value.

also i used to play Assetto corsa that similar with Gran Turismo, and i’m always used jaguar xj200 and many other old ones. well, It took a while, but people starting to appreciate it

  • en NPN Germanium transistor list for Fuzz pedals

  • My interest in fuzz pedal came from JMI Tone Bender III reissue which belongs to a friend. this pedal has 3 of OC75 glass tube transistors.

    And, unfortunately, My Sola Sound Bum Fuzz came with 3 of NPN transistors while OC75 is PNP type. then found this web page with germanium and silicone transistor lists

    http://vintageradio.me.uk/info/radiocon_data_trans.htm

    There are 26 of germanium NPN transistors from the data sheets

    ASY28, ASY29

    2N388, 2N388A

    2N1302, 2N1304, 2N1306, 2N1308,

    OC139, OC140, OC141

    AD161

    AC187

    NKT713, NKT773, NKT774, NKT781

    2SD72

     
    Black glass tube NPN transistors are OC139, OC140, OC141 from them.

     
    OC75 is like this according to this web page on alltransistors.com

    Type Designator: OC75 (PNP)

    Maximum Collector Power Dissipation (Pc): 0.125 W

    Maximum Collector-Base Voltage |Vcb|: 20 V

    Maximum Collector-Emitter Voltage |Vce|: 20 V

    Maximum Emitter-Base Voltage |Veb|: 10 V

    Maximum Collector Current |Ic max|: 0.01 A

    Transition Frequency (ft): 0.1 MHz

    Collector Capacitance (Cc): 50 pF

    Forward Current Transfer Ratio (hFE), MIN: 55

    And, for OC139, OC140 is

    Vcb: 20 V / 20 V

    Vce: 20 V / 20V

    Forward Current Transfer Ratio (hFE), MIN: 40 / 75

     
    I’m going to try OC139. simply beccause, OC139 is cheaper than OC140 on ebay. and I’m wondering how Transition Frequency differences work with Fuzz. I’ll update in a few weeks

  • en Got ink?

  • Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Harvard Medical School have teamed to develop a novel tattoo ink that can show your body’s health changes.

    The novel ink consists of biosensors that react to changes in the tissue fluid and make the skin an “interactive display”. So far, researchers have investigated four biosensors that respond to three types of body information, changing their colors.

    As the pH-value increases, the color changes from violet to pink, an increasing sodium content is seen as a bright green under UV light, and blue becomes brown when the glucose level increases.

    This animation from a video of the researchers shows how such a tattoo might look like:

    Especially for diabetics, a tattoo with ink that reacts to an altered glucose level could be useful. They have to prick their finger with a small needle if they want to measure their blood sugar level – usually several times a day. This procedure can be painful in the long run and can lead to small scars.

    You can read more about this innovative technology here: https://www.media.mit.edu/projects/d-Abyss/overview/

  • en Elliot Mechanics – Mechanicland Strat Neck pictures

  • got this brazilian strat neck a couple of years ago. it has refinished before. unfortunately, it’s urethan finish on it.  it still ages well though.

    trussrod nut and the decal have replaced at 90’s by the owner before me. and I don’t think this Mechanicland neck came with the decal. the decal on the head is definitely a aftermarket product. and it looks funny a bit

    everything else is great with this beautiful with brazilian fretboard. and, sounds stunning along with this light ash (not swamp ash) body

  • en The Abyss

  • “He who fights too long against dragons becomes a dragon himself; and if you gaze too long into the abyss, the abyss will gaze into you.”

    ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

    The German Philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche died in 1897 of brain cancer in the home of his mother. He had a nervous collapse in 1887 at the age of 44 and spend his last ten years totally and completely insane. He saw too far.

    The American writer Ernest Hemingway killed himself in July of 1962. He had been suffering from severe depression and was undergoing electroshock therapy. He wrote that he was depressed because he saw the “black emptiness of human existence”. He saw too far.

    You see my friends there is a dark place in our psyche. An abyss. The most intelligent and far-sighted of us can see into it. It is a frightening place. Not peopled with monsters or ghosts but with emptiness. An emptiness so complete that it appears that there is no end to it and no escape.

    Yet, this is an illusion. The dark place is something we create for ourselves. We stare into it and it takes our hope. It clouds our perception and crushes our spirit. Yet, it does not have the power to destroy us. We must do this on our own. If one leaps into the dark place and embraces it then we fall through to the other side. On the other side is perfect freedom. Death is not the answer. Life is the answer. We can live in freedom from fear by embracing our fear. The darkness cannot touch us ever again.

    “It’s done by hurling yourself into the abyss, and discovering that it’s a feather bed. There’s no other way to do it.”

    ~ Terence McKenna
