Various - mess + noise disc 1

Recently noise cancelling headphones have become very popular, but many people don’t realize the disadvantages of noise cancellation.

The prototype board works as far as I’ve tested it, but that’s not very far. I verified that I can program the FPGA via JTAG, and that it responds to address and data on the Apple II bus, but that’s about it. I haven’t yet looked at what it’s doing on the external disk interface, or tried connecting a real drive. My attention has just been focused on other things, and even though I always mean to return to this project “soon”, somehow I never do.

Since standard XLR cables come with their shields tied to pin 1 at each end (the shells are not tied, nor need be), this means equipment using 3-pin, XLR-type connectors must tie pin 1 to the chassis (usually called chassis ground ) -- not the audio signal ground as is most common.

The print and online articles from the Bay Guardian newspaper and from 2006–2014 are back online at the Bay Guardian archives, and you can search the archive at this link.  We will be adding more to the archives in coming months, so stay tuned! This project is hosted by our friends at 48 Hills.

Guitars and pickups
As we’ve talked about, a proper ground connection and shielding is vital for keeping your guitar as silent. I’ve had great success with shielding the pickup cavity of my guitars with copper foil but then again, I’m lucky to rarely encounter 60 cycle hum or bad ground connections. Again, vintage style single coil pickups is a compromise no matter what and you are bound to have some level of noise because the pickups will pickup electrical interference in addition to your strings.

Meanwhile, the relationship between the Assad regime and the Democratic Union Party (PYD) – the dominant political force in those two Kurdish areas – is not properly adversarial. Regime and Kurdish areas are distinct but entangled, not just territorially, but also in terms of economic life and shared state institutions. Importantly, the PYD has always set its ambitions for local autonomy below the threshold of secession or regime change in Damascus, which has kept the PYD’s relationship with the regime fraught but functional. It is these latter two camps – the regime and Kurdish-led forces – that have secured robust great-power support. The opposition’s backers, on the other hand, are incoherent and unmotivated. And the Islamic State is dying alone.

My story is about the lady that lives below us she has complained on us because our kids who are 2 and 4 sometimes make a little to much noise ex: like when they fall or jump. The lady below us however instead of coming up here usually bangs on her ceiling which vibrates our whole floor. We asked for a bottom apartment because I knew that my kids could get roudy because my kids have a hard time sitting still and being quiet. It has become so bad that I am afraid to let them even play anymore because we can’t afford to get evicted. It is soo frustrating it makes me sooo nervous. Anyone have any suggestions
