    The big one is SalesForce Tower, over 1000 ft high and over a billion
    dollars. It is about 10% occupied now.

    The population of San Francisco is down about 7% from pre-virus. This
    could be a good time to hire an engineer or two.

    So that means they must've lowered the price 90% on the vacant space, yeah?

    Haha just kidding that didn't happen. They probably noticed falling
    demand and raised rents, lol

    What are those funny wires for, crossing that road?

    All is underground over here, apart from HV lines.

    Is Joe B. gonna fix that?

    Here they start housing Ukrain refugees in empty office spaces...

    Got some iodine pills yesterday, just in case things go nuculear.
    Anyways after Chernobyl I have probably build up resistance.

    Cannot you guys lock up Joe B. in one of those skyscrapers?

    Three-phase power, obviously. That footbridge is a popular place to

    wires out. Strangely, there are underpasses, city streets, under those
    wires.

    I shot through a chain link fence with my phone. People with real
    cameras cut holes in the fence for their big lenses.

    I am collecting a photo album of the most hideous overhead wiring in
    San Francisco; so many to choose from. I'll post a link eventually.

    The land here is mostly rock, so trenching is expensive. Stuff is
    underground at work, and we would have paid a fortune to dig up the
    street and get fiber internet, so we have a MonkeyBrains dish.

    Oh, SED is mostly of topic so what.
    As to what I care about US, you goddamned warmongers and your fanatic brain dead leader
    Joe Biden make war here in Europe by provoking Russia no end.
    All for the weapon sales of your US criminal Military Industrial Complex
    About time that got nuked into oblivion.

    First you did Agent Orange in Vietnam,
    You invaded Iraq and used depleted uranium ammo
    then you had, in fear for yourself, covid
    designed in foreign labs, backfired on you idiots did it not?
    And you were doing the same in Ukrainian labs.
    The list of war crimes by the puppets of your Military Industrial Complex is endless, all for the money
    If you do not like what I write then do not read it, nevertheless it may wake your brain if you have one
    and perhaps prevent you from supporting those criminals that played the blacks and other minorities to gain power and look what you

    America is a burden on the word now.

    In the US wars just about anywhere always mean pork for the DOD and
    austerity for most everyone else.

    That is to say "they" take it out on the poor - always.

    Relevant to the original topic of the thread, US cities are well on
    their way to tracking the "development" of cities in the 3rd World like
    Brazil or India or China, a city core of fabulous wealth surrounded by
    the sprawling slums of the destitute.

    Market proselytizers will nod and consider this an "efficient and
    equitable allocation of resources" as all economists will either be cryptocurrency hustlers or unemployed and living in the slums themselves
    by that point.

    With an ever-increasing national debt, enabled by forced low interest
    rates, the dollar has to collapse and the feds must eventually default
    on the debt somehow.

    The proposed tax on unrealized capital gains is just one more brick on
    the wall that must collapse.

    Post something about electronic design.

    As to electronics, I was testing a Raspberry Pi based PIC programmer I designd back in 2013..

    Works, but is now a bunch of cables but can be made very small.
    So I started designing and needed a 5 V to 12 V converter (from Raspi GPIO 5 V to 12 V to program the PIC)
    and could not get the chips I wanted.. no stock...
    So found this on ebay:
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/112855472220
    1$73 a piece, cannot make it for that.

    Ordered a few, but.. delivery:
    do, 14 apr - vr, 17 jun

    Anyways until then it needs an external wallwart.


    We have been designing several products using eval boards, instead of
    buying piece parts. LCDs, microZed, a few things like that.

    Often we can get the eval boards overnight, when the parts on those
    boards have 40 week lead times, and cost more than the eval board.

    John Larkin is telling us what he was programmed to think by Trump's election propaganda.

    What John would have posted - if he were a bit less gullible - would have been

    "People who are susceptible to Donald Trump's implausible pre-election propagada now think that he was always stupid, always wrong, always corrupt, and now senile."

    You can see why Trump's election team wanted people to think that (even if John Larkin can't), but the majority of the population weren't susceptible to the fatuous nonsense and voted for Joe Biden anyway.

    With an ever-increasing national debt, enabled by forced low interest rates, the dollar has to collapse and the feds must eventually default on the debt somehow.

    The proposed tax on unrealized capital gains is just one more brick on the wall that must collapse.

    John Larkin's grasp of economics isn't impressive. He starts off with the proposition that John Maynard Keynes was wrong, and swallows the nonsense propagated by economists who felt it to be more important to have a mathematically tractable model of the
    economy than a model that some kind of capacity to predict what it was actually going to do.

    The Republican Party does like unrealistic predictions - it lets them forecast doom and gloom before every election, and justifies them screwing the less well-off if they do get elected.

    Post something about electronic design.

    With all the chip shortages I decided to build the next computer out of discretes. Got a fair number of relays on the shelves, and figured a good voltage pulse could speed em up. I'm finding they break down around 1kV, but my maths reckons I need more
    zeroes to get them doing a gigahertz. Any suggestions for getting them to survive a couple of megavolts?

    :)

    That's hilarious, in a way you probably didn't intend.

    Measure the characteristics of interest with a VNA and design some
    compensating circuits. Owen Duffy (owenduffy.net) did that sort of thing.
