EE types, tell me what you think. Have I created a good RF divider for this 1.485 Gb signal?

It's damn near a perfect -3db, and if anything, I think the eye is actually a tad cleaner after the split. This makes no sense to me, but I've checked and re-checked, and it stays consistent.

Sometimes I listen to country music because its 180 degrees from my usual choice and it makes me giggle. The last 4/6 songs on this Pandora station have made reference to some guy named Hank. He must be a big deal in the south or sumthin'.

Hank is a big deal. He sells propane and propane accessories.

Yeah, they all mention Hank, Willie, and Waylon but sound like 70's rock plus a pop tempo.

Related funny song but NSFW language.

It would have been more ironic if it was a dodge ram.

I should bite the bullet and get a dash cam.

Passed an unmarked on my way to a highway entrance ramp today. Halfway up the ramp, he crossed the 20ft of do not cross lines to pass me back and merged over four lanes of traffic in one fell swoop. I caught up and followed him at 70-75* in and out of traffic the rest of my commute home. God bless America. Braineack would be proud.

I wanna get a dash cam but illinois law has been changed 4 times in the recent year or two.. you can have a dash cam but you cant record the cops, you can have a dash cam but you have to tell the cops asap that you have a dash cam, you cant have a dash cam and will face felony if you're cougt recording the cops, you can have a dash cam but x bullshit.. i have no clue what the law is now. Our state government is so corrupt it's a miracle this state is still alive.

Same. I figure I am much more likely to be harassed for having a dash cam than I am to record evidence for an insurance claim. When I was living out of state, there were 2-3 times that I came back to visit family for only a few days, and within those few days I was stopped for no front license plate or tinted windows or some other bs fishing claim.

Is it still alive though? I keep reading stuff that makes it seem like it's past the point of no return. (I've really only been paying attention lately because my son wants to go to grad school in Champagne/Urbana.)

As you are no doubt aware, a random value generator is an integral component of most analog modular synthesizers. In synthesizers made by Buchla, this device is known as the Source Of Uncertainty:



I find this name to be wryly amusing.

IIRC, illinois laws were deemed unconstitutional.

The current law, IIRC, expressly says you can audio record on-duty police without two-party consent. http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/ilcs...072000050K14-2

but yes, you live in a shitty state. You could go to jail for 15 years if you videotape your kids baseball game and pick up any voices on the recorder of people in the crowd having a "private" conversation.

The supreme court also has plenty of case law that protects you. But its probably best to just not record audio unless you need to :P
