They tweaked the large sprague caps and the small ones too much for the scene. but it’s still good to see my favorite sprague capacitors on a movie. aren’t they orange back in the days? 

this board is Apple-1 from this movie Jobs from 2013

btw, I wanted to capture the scenes. and it didn’t work with Safari browser. this helped me out. you can capture the screenshot while it’s playing on chrome. it didn’t work while posed.

Why It’s Rare; original Apple-1 computer up for auction

and noticed the small electrolytic caps are Philips. I have some here for my amps.

I’m actually not sure if the small caps are Philips. I see the black line on the positive side and don’t see it on mine

I wonder how many of these first Apple computers are still lying around in somebody’s basement. Already the Apple II fetches some high prices: https://www.ebay.de/itm/UNIQUE-COMBO-2-2-Multiple-truly-unique-Apple-Computer-items-incl-an-Apple-II/173795669544?hash=item2877077628:g:Ha0AAOSwuQhb~hBT

the first computer I saw was Apple II at a friend’s place in the early 80’s. didn’t have any interest in it at the time. but the listing on ebay still brings me the memory

Before they’ve started to sell those home computers with Win3.0 or Win95 here in Germany, a lot of people owned Apple machines but now they are hard to find here. Not because these computers are rare but rather people just threw them away.

figured out how to read the date code on the sprague caps.

http://audiokarma.org/forums/index.php?threads/date-code-for-sprague-atom-electrolytic-capacitor.783610/

the caps from the movie have 1080H and 1019H codes on them. they came from 18th and 19th week of 2010.

I see 7613L on the original Apple-1 board. 13th week of 1976.

 

they put the fresh sprague caps on the board at ’76

Did watch the movie with Ashton Kutcher and was totally disappointed. How he has portrayed Jobs was way too much faked. Just my opinion.

on April 13, 2019

it was on Netflix and didn’t think about the movie that much. I don’t have any interest in someone’s life nor a movie about it.

  • en Which methods are the best examples of data mining?


  • Data mining is not just the art of extracting new information; In fact, it is about identifying new patterns from data that you’ve already collected. Here are 10 best examples of data mining methods and techniques:

    1. Cluster analysis to identify target groups
    2. Regression analysis to bring on marketing forecasts
    3. Classification analysis to spot on spams and more
    4. Anomaly detection to identify abnormalities
    5. Intrusion detection for system security
    6. Rule learning to recognize links between data
    7. Decision trees analysis to improve on project risk management
    8. Neural network application for automated learning
    9. Induction rule to prefigure data-based analysis
    10. Data warehousing

  • en Question to the Slowbean community. (Stone / rock processing)

  • Hi community, since a long time I’m pondering about two topics that interest me. Stones / rocks and their industrial processing. If I want to cut rocks or slice stones in small pieces I have to use large machines, the energy consumption of such stone cutting machine is way too high for somebody who would just start to cut / slice rock. So, my question is: Do you have any ideas, thoughts or know about eco-friendly techologies which are energy efficient for cutting rocks into small slices? Every input regarding this topic is welcome.

  • en I’m into 5v4g than 5y3 with 6v6 tweed amps

  • [EDIT]

    I’m updating this post not to make people confused. I believed B+ was lower with 5v4g than 5y3. but 5v4g is increasing B+ and makes the bias warmer than 5y3. I guess it is the reason I feel the amps are more alive with 5v4g

    then I noticed the vintage amps with the original caps from 50’s and early 60’s are more vulnerable with 5v4g to 60hz hum. I’m just guessing leakage of the coupling caps and the filter caps could be the reason. I’m still enjoying 5v4g with the amps with new components. didn’t have an issue with my 5D3 which has new filter caps either. 

    [EDIT again]
    one of my 5V4G tubes shows very low B+. the 60hz hum came from it I believe

    there are more and better info for 5vg and 5y3 rectifiers on the gearpage.net 

    https://www.thegearpage.net/board/index.php?threads/swapping-rectifier-tubes-5ar4-vs-5r4-vs-5v4-vs-5y3.1382681/

     

    I hook up tweed champ, deluxe, and m-track 2×2 together while jamming with youtube. 5v4g sounds still alive with this stereo and digital setup to me. but, m-track 2×2 is cheap and sharing the one single full bandwidth with usb and instrument at the same time. it sounds good while using only one of them. it sucks when the knob is at the center.

    it’s the knob on m-track 2×2. don’t buy it if you want to use your guitar amps as monitor speakers while playing guitar through the direct input. maybe I’m just doing this wrong.

  • 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.

  • en ’54 Fender Tweed Deluxe 5D3 pics

  • this wide panel tweed deluxe 5d3 came to me with weber 12a125a speaker a few months ago. it was a very good combo and the price was fair with the new skin. but, I couldn’t stand the blue color of 12a125a. everything else was good to me and my friends.

    I’ve tried a like new ’51 p12r without bell, re-coned ’53 p12r came out ’54 5C3, black ’61 p12n, and this ’51 p12q.

    p12q is known as one of the original speakers for fender tweed deluxe. but didn’t have a chance to play with p12q before. 

    p12q breaks up early like p12r. it was my first question while I was searching this speaker. and the question has solved.

    I was obsessed with vintage jensen speakers a while ago. especially with p12n. but it didn’t work well with 5d3 because of the breakup point. or the family and the neighbors. 

    then p12q came into my mind. the sound was great like p12n even at the lower volume. and breaks up early enough like p12r in my imaginary world before I actually got this speaker. and it came true. I love this setup and won’t change the speaker again.
