Due to the heavy bombing in World War II, #Magdeburg has less to offer in terms of cultural attractions than other cities of the same size. But of course there are still enough things to look at and the Hundertwasserhaus is without question one of real gems. Shortly thereafter follows the Magdeburg Cathedral, also a special landmark of the city.

I remember the word “wasser” means water. and haus sounds like house. what’s the meaning ofย Hundertwasserhaus?

on March 22, 2019

It is named after its architect, Friedensreich Hundertwasser. Very famous for his paintings and buildings. More about his life and work here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friedensreich_Hundertwasser

๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡งBagan (Burma) is an archaeological site perhaps less known than the Angkor complex in Cambodia, but it is very similar to it, and historically and archaeologically more interesting. Bagan Archaeological Zone is the formal name used to designate the historical region of the ancient Kingdom of Bagan. It is thought that probably more than 13,000 temples, pagodas and other religious structures were built here. It is a unique heritage built between the 11th and 12th centuries in this area. Together with Angkor and Borobudur it is among the most significant archaeological sites in Southeast Asia and the world.๐Ÿ›๐Ÿ—ฟ โ€ข ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡นBagan (Birmania) รจ un sito archeologico forse meno noto del complesso di Angkor in Cambogia, ma รจ molto simile ad esso, e storicamente ed archeologicamente piรน interessante.

Cave paintings are some of the earliest evidence we have that people were capable of abstract thinking. Also we get a glimpse of what they considered important in there surroundings.

Here’s another fantastic example in Italy: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rock_Drawings_in_Valcamonica

  • en 2.2″ front wheels and axles for RC10

  • I got myself this front axle mod idea from rc10talk.com forum when I wanted to put Yokomo 2.2″ wheels on my RC10 runners a couple of years ago. Associated #7222 axles are everything actually. there are not much left to do except for getting the axles if you want to use B4 or JC rulux wheels

    ย 

    longer axle on the right side is ASC7222 that makes you can use none-offset wheels like B4’s, Yoke 4WD’s, and more

    ย 

    Yokomo madeย TH-1 wheel adapters for RC10. early TH-1 came with frontย adapters as well.ย but later TH-1 didn’t

    ย 
    I had managed to get a set of front hubs. but needed more. and got another set from a trick with Ultima hubs.

    ย 

    ย 

    got this after I trimmed the each side of Ultima front hub from TH-8 package above. the diameter is “slightly” larger for 3/16″ bearings. but the tiny play (gap) was fixed with Loctite. then I’v been using the hubs without a issue

  • en interesting amps and cabinet from John Mergili

  • recently got me a 5F1 champ cabinet for 10″ speaker from this guy. the quality is great indeed. I’ll update with some pics after I finish the amp inside of the tweed cabinet. a friend is playing his tweed champ with 12″ speaker more than the stock 8″. I’m going to start with WGS 10″ ceramic speaker which came with the cabinet.ย

  • en Jensen EM-1002 10″ speaker with syntox-6 ceramic magnet

  • didn’t know Jensen had Concert series with ceramic magnets. this PM-1002 sounds more like Jensen 10J11 than WGS Veteran ceramic to me. even I believed it was an alnico speaker when I grabbed this off ebay for $69 plus shipping. then googled what Syntox-6 was after a week playing this in my 5F1 project. a bit disappointed while figuring out what the magnet was. but still happy with this NOS Jensen with the original box. andย it is way louder than Jensen 10J11 alnico speaker as I expected.

    I’ve tried Mullard and a few different 12ax7 tubes with it. and going to stick with GE black plate 5751 for a while.ย

  • en How it all ends. Maybe.

  • “Some say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice. From what I’ve tasted of desire I hold with those who favor fire. But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate to say that for destruction ice Is also great and would suffice.” Robert Frost (1874-1963)

    The end of the world may come slowly, but it’s inevitable. Our sun, exhausting the hydrogen-fuel of the core, will successively burn the outer layers and doing so becoming hotter and expanding in size. In estimated 7,59 billion years a red giant will engulf the earth – or whatever still be left over of the once blue planet.

    Already in 1,6 billion years the hotter sun will evaporate the oceans, and plate tectonics, whiteout enough water acting as lubricant in subduction zones, will stop. Without plate tectonics erosion will become a dominant factor. The increased radiation of sun will modify the chemical composition of earth’s atmosphere. The light hydrogen will also “evaporate” into space and the heavy oxygen will accumulate on the surface of earth. In this denser atmosphere rare, but strong, rainstorms will cause large mudflows in the last mountain ranges. Mountains will be eroded and basins filled with sediments and earth’s surface will become a plain desert. The iron in the sediments will react with the oxygen and earth’s colors will change into a permanent red, like planet Mars today. In the dense atmosphere temperatures will still rise, dissolving gypsum and other sulphur-bearing rocks. The free sulphur will react with the traces of vapor left in the atmosphere and it will rain sulphuric acid from earth’s sky.

    In 7,5 billion years the expanding sun will gravitationally lock earth and one side will now face always towards sun. In the sunny side the temperature of earth’s surface will rise to 2.200ยฐC, on the dark side of earth the temperature, without an isolating atmosphere, could plunge to -240ยฐ. Basalt, one of the most common rocks on earth, melts at 1.100-1.200ยฐC, on the sunshine side it will be so hot that a molten magma-ocean formsโ€ฆ and it will start to evaporate. Between the hot side and cool side of earth the evaporated elements, like iron and silica, will form rain and like today snowflakes form a landscape composed of snow, iron- sodium-, magnesium- and potassium-flakes will form an eerie landscape composed of these elements. Rock-glaciers will descend from the mountains to the shores and icebergs of rock will float into the magma-ocean.

  • en Belden E3462-C cord makes my tweed amps dead quiet

  • needed a longer AC cord for my 5D3 and tried E3462-C cord. this cord noticeably reduces noise even while it has more amps and computers share the same AC and audio source.

    then I replaced all the AC cord with this for my tweed amps. the most dramatic change comes to ’59 5F1 which was quiet alone but it cannot be hooked up with AB box. even 60hz hum was loud when it shared the same AC power source without AB box. ground lift didn’t work either. it just shifted the noise frequency

    this seller has the cable. but, only one of three was correct. two of them were E3462 without C. they are metal shielded and the noise was louder than 2 prong cord.

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Black-CPU-Power-Cord-Cable-SVT-E-3462-C-LL-30830/253801406241

    ย 

    found another seller had the correct cable. and finally all of my tweed amps are dead quiet at any circumstance with E3462-C. even there is no difference between the original and modern 5F1 with or without the center tab.

    ย 

    and this typical ac cord wasn’t that bad for 5D3 but there is a huge difference with 5F1. E3462-C is still way better for 5D3 as well.

  • a member here recommended me 5751 for tweed deluxe v1 socket. and I’m impressed with this setup. I grabbed this off ebay for $32 even the kind seller sent me an extra GE 5751.

    I’d say it’s way better than stock 12ay7 and 12at7 on v1.

    and 5751 on 5F1 reduces the output volume a bit. but still a good sounding tube
