2021-05-15 Million Mile Battery Is Not Moot Or Irrelevant

From FB group TSLA Shareholders

De Bits
Said, “…analysts … are focused on million mile battery which is moot if not irrelevant.”

To you, Mr. De Bits, it may be irrelevant because you are apparently clueless about how important the lives of batteries are going to be for the V2G – vehicle to grid – that will force fossil fuels out of electricity generation.

See, its not just about vehicle mileage, it’s about using some of the EV’s battery for the same functions that the Tesla Powerwalls and Megapacks are used for.

Musk and Tesla have already revealed this, in fact they have piloted this in the UK and here in the US. Sometime soon it could be released pending approval. Apparently you haven’t kept up with these developments, so you might read about Tesla’s Autobidder.


2021-05-14 CDC Guidlines For Wearing Masks

Yesterday, 2021 May 13, the director of the CDC issued new guidelines for mask wearing. For those who are fully vaccinated, the guidelines do not require wearing masks outside, except in crowds. Inside it’s similar. But those who are not fully vaccinated must still wear masks. However the CDC still defers to state and local guidelines. More information here.

This was from Will Prowse’s YouTube channel.

I would like to get some of these to run an air conditioner.

2021-05-13 Pelosi Rips Ron Clyde For Downplaying Jan 6 Assault On Capitol

<< Washington — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday ripped Republican Congressman Andrew Clyde of Georgia for downplaying the January 6 assault on the U.S. Capitol, calling his comments describing the insurrectionists as behaving like they were on a typical Capitol tour “sick” and “quite appalling.” >>

I think it would be best for the US if at least one of these legislators-in-denial was reprimanded or censured in some way to show that Congress is serious about ending the untruth that is dividing this country.

First, the problem should be analyzed and defined precisely in legal, political, psychological and other terms to narrow it down. Then a treatment should be formulated.

It seems to me that this is as close to a civil war this country has come since the 1860s. There is a fundamental problem that is causing the denial of the truth.

The deniers should be examined by psychologists to see what it is that is causing them to deny reality. These schisms are deep into the minds of so many that they are causing harm.

2021-05-12 TSLA Shareholder Whines About Stock Market

From FB TSLA group comments

<< More Sun Tzu

“When big appear small when small appear big. When near appear far, When far appear near.”

In your case, it’s “When dumb act smart when broke act rich when losing money act like you’ve got all the money to lose.”

You’re literally crying to the man a few comments below me asking him to be sensitive to you. You are here crying publicly about your losses on a SHAREHOLDERS page when you are talking about LEAPS.

You are here losing money because of your own actions. You turned equity into a loss. You can project all the insecurities you want. You’re doing nothing but helping the page see the real you.

The reality is you’re acting like you’re building up the company. All you are doing is providing liquidity and wasting oxygen. >>


2021-05-11 Power Supply Protection Diodes

First off, *all* power supplies should have what this one has.

A high current diode across the output jacks, cathode or banded end to positive. This is to protect the output from reverse voltage.

A high current diode across the 2N3055 pass transistor, cathode or banded end towards the collector. This protects the transistor from reverse voltage.

Both these diodes must be rated at more than the power supply’s maximum current.

Notice the output jacks have a capacitor across them. This should also have a 0.1 uF ceramic disk in parallel.


2021-05-10 Power Lines For Data Communication

In the late ’60s a high school friend and I worked part-time with a guy who did FCC type acceptance and other radio engineering. He bought used Hewlett-Packard, Tektronix and other high quality test equipment. One was a frequency standard which was directly traceable to the National Bureau Of Standards, now known as NIST. He checked frequency counters using the 10 MHz WWV stations. He also checked frequency counters against some AM broadcasting stations. One was an AM station in San Francisco, which can be heard in LA at night. He noticed that the frequency, which is supposed to be kept within a close tolerance, was changing periodically but still within tolerance. It seemed to be transmitting frequency shift keyed code. He asked the station engineer but was given no information other than it was secret. He came to the conclusion that the military was probably using it to send encrypted messages to submarines at sea.

The point is that it’s possible to use radio transmitter for something other than its intended purpose. So I thought about this idea.

The electric companies have some frequencies (VHF or ??) assigned to them for sending control signals between stations and equipment in the field. The big trend now is the IoT – internet of things. Residences are becoming more automated. If the electric companies have a need to control loads or generation sources on the grid, it would be very helpful if the slaves could be controlled remotely over the power lines.

The smart gas and electric meters are controlled over a Zigbee mesh network. The messages are stored and forwarded by a peer-to-peer network. I assume that this means there is no ability to control the amount of delay between the sender node and the receiver node since the number of hops and delays between hops is not known. This wouldn’t be a problem if the messages were sent directly over the power lines.


2021-05-08 Climate Change And The Future

From FB replies

Darryl Howard
Said, “…time will tell. I doubt anything happens here in the next 100 years…”

I saw that in Canada, in a national park, the pine trees are dying. The bark beetles burrow in and eat the living tissues. Normally in the past it got down to minus 40 degrees for several days and that was cold enough to kill the beetles. But climate change is causing the winter temperatures to not get quite as cold and the beetles survive. They showed the forest full of brown trees. They said half of the trees are dying or dead. The next lightning from a thunderstorm that starts a fire will create a huge wildfire.

I look at it this way. If I’m wrong and the climate change is not real, the countries will have spent a lot of money for possibly nothing. But if we fail to act now to reverse climate change, then when we find that it gets really bad, there will be no second chance to apologize and say we had better get busy and stop climate change. Once it gets bad enough to make everyone believe, it’s far too late. Most likely those with beachfront property, like in Miami will find their property partially underwater. But the biggest losers will be the poorest countries where the people will become climate refugees. This climate change in central America is causing the refugees to come north and become illegals here. But it’s going to get far worse. It’s going to cause droughts that will make irrigating farmland difficult if not impossible. The livestock that eat a lot of food and water will have to be sacrificed to save the food for humans.

My sister was a born again Christian and I lost her to cancer a week ago. She and I grew up in a Christian family, but she got involved with the crowd that did drugs. I hesitate to call myself a Christian anymore because I saw what a lot of two faced Christians were like. I’ve had cancer, too so I figure I don’t have that much longer on this Earth. But while I do, I want to make sure the future generations have an Earth that’s not unlivable. Others also have the best interests of the Earth in mind. The best scientists we have say that the climate is changing, and they show many other examples to prove it.

In the next decade the world will be making major changes in the way we live. Everyone will have to make some sacrifices, in order to keep the Earth halfway livable. There is no other choice.

Darryl Howard
I have read the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, took me a year and a half. That’s more than you can say.

Climate change doesn’t have to be human caused. But the climate is changing rapidly. You can believe what you want. But you’ll be left to your foolishness while the younger generations have to put up with the damage that’s already being caused by climate change. I won’t be around to have any regrets. I’ll be another viet nam era veteran buried in the national cemetery while you and other foolish people argue over who gets the life preservers as the ship is sinking.

Bon voyage, sucker!
