Ik kies leven, leven met risico, maar leven niettemin.

Leven is nooit zonder risico.

Leven is kort en waardevol.

Leven moet worden geleefd, niet uitgezeten als een gevangenisstraf.

Ik kies ervoor om niet in angst te leven, dat is bewust, ik ga de confrontatie aan.

Ik rijd motor, overal wegpiraten, ben ik onverstandig? 

Ik doe aan zelfverdedigingstraining...kans op blessures... onverstandig?

Ik ben getrouwd, heb kinderen, mijn vrouw kan bij mijn financiën.. onverstandig?

Ik heb een eigen zaak, afhankelijk van mijn inspanning en talent... onverstandig?

Ik geloof dat je moet werken vanuit je kracht, iedere beer op de weg moet confronteren, inschatten en aanpakken en niet ontwijken.

Ik zie dingen in patronen en wat ik nu zie dwingt me dit te schrijven opdat iemand het leest en gaat nadenken.

Binnenkort is er niks meer te koop, geen TV, geen Laptop, geen CV ketel, allemaal door de angst. De angst zorgt voor maatregelen en zorgt ervoor dat mensen niet meer bewegen, niet meer ondernemen, niet meer investeren. De overheid pompt geld in de economie die gaat leiden tot hyperinflatie, maar iedereen slaapt lekker door.

Doe eens wat, maak eens geluid, leven is meer dan Netflix en 8 uur journaal.

De overheid is er voor jou en door jou.
"De maatschappij : dat ben jij" weet u het nog?

Laat van je horen, anders wordt niemand wakker.

DAT IS JOUW VERANTWOORDELIJKHEID, niet opvolgen van orders.

Denon DHT T100 DESIGNED TO FAIL : bad caps (ceramic caps this time)

A friend gave me a Denon DHT-T100 to look at. Do not spend much time on it.. ok. It had a problem, it started clicking and ticking after power on, and after some time. (a so called intermittent problem) Sometimes it did not tick or click, but it was basically not usable. The clicking had a sharp click in one channel and repeated after about a second, then sound recovered and it would click and drop out again. He told me, do not spend any time on it, yeah, right. ;-) like I would give up after 15 minutes. I wanted to know what was going on with this thing, I found some schematic online and started measuring the usual things. The power supply, 24V did it drop down when a tick occurred ? Difficult to find out because sometimes the thing would play for hours without a glitch. I eventually found out the 24 V PSU, the step down SMPS on board and the LDO's were all ok, all power rails remained within spec, but it still glitched sometimes. (while power was ok) I investigat

Fixed voltage on cheap buck converter (MP1584) conversion with single 0805 resistor

Everywhere I look on the Ali and Ebays I see these step down converters based on MP1584. I bought a couple and actually they are not bad at all. The output voltage is set by the trimming-resistor in the left top corner of the picture. This works OK, but.. it is dangerous because it is rather sensitive to the touch. I decided that I wanted fixed output, so I had to figure out how this thing worked. The datasheet looks like this : R1 in the datasheet is what I call "R feedback" in my image. The value of R2 is mostly 8.2K Ohm in the boards I have seen.  So to set some common values for output voltage: change R1 to 27K for 3V3 output (actually 3.4 volt, but 27K is a standard value) or change R1 to 43K0 for 5.0 Volt output. (43 K is a standard value) A standard 0805 size resistor fits precisely, how convenient ;-). Make sure the other resistor is really 8.2K because that determines the feedback ratio. This way you can not burn up your circ

Laptop repair (MSI 1035 OEM) saved money again

Today I repaired my laptop. It was not working anymore, completely dead. Here is a link to the manufacturer : It is an old one, it does not support Virtualbox, but runs Debian just fine. I like it because it has a 17" screen, nice to work in bed, full size keyboard too. Searching for problems without any schematic is just gambling so I postponed it. I found a YouTube channel by Louis Rossmann who repairs laptops, and he got some schematics from a website : I ordered my schematics for about 10 euro. I got 57 pages of PDF. I had to take apart the whole laptop to get near the actual hardware. I took my time, did not break any plastic tabs off.. And after what seemed like an hour I was where I needed to be. I started at the beginning, the power input and verified it. 19.14 volts. At the end of the
