We used to call that "Loose nut behind the wheel." in automotive
repair shops when they brought the car in for a "funny noise" which we
were unable to find or replicate.
Anyway, I found a Youtube vid of their system and left a heads-up for
them about my FF 53.0.3 32-bit malfunction with their website. I
thought maybe it was a server overload the first day, but it persists
I opened Firefox, Googled "eccentric engineering", clicked the link
and then opened the Shop tab to reach the prices.
My Firefox doesn't have any Add-ons. .Net is disabled and it lists
Plug-ins for H264, Foxit Reader, VLC, Java, MS DRM, WPF and Media
Player, and Shockwave.
Google translate does the dns lookup, acts like a proxy. It wouldn't
let me do English to English though. But it will do Yiddish to

It is a nice tool for deciphering the odd web pages of interest
in other languages. It usually works well for getting the gist of it
and some good chuckles too.
Found this guy's setup while aimlessly wandering the net, thought some
might find it of interest.
Thanks for posting this. In the current run-a-way political threads I
almost missed it. I like it. I probably won't have one shipped from Oz,
but I might make one. If was in the US I'd probably buy one of his.
Yeah, wheat/chaff ratio not favorable right now. About time to update
He does have a US distributor, though I didn't follow that link to see who.
I'm thinking of buying the kit, to save time, I do like it's well
thought out design.
Whoo! Not cheap. Who do they think they are, Starrett? I got an
error below the URL (This page was not retrieved from its original
location over a secure connection.Dismiss) and a 3 minute translation
time, but it did finally come through via FF.
Poor Jon's $170 square costs just $45 in Portland, OR. And $10 or so
to ship in the States. Shipping to and from AU is GHASTLY, usually
doubling the price of anything.
Shipping to AU isn't cheap, and shipping within really isn't either. But
I had it in 2 days out of Sydney which is pretty darn good for here.
Exchange rate, plus anything really worthwhile (not import crap) really
isn't cheap. But it's my livelihood, and a write off to boot.
Some Americans never get over sticker shock here. Me, if I really want
or need it, I just buy it and don't think about it too much.
Yeah, speaking of which, how's the UPS service and pricing there? I'll
bet DHL is better represented Down Under.
It's much easier to buy expensively when you're reimbursed for it.
I don't think I ever would, being so squeakily frugal meself.
That's 12 cents worth of wire, sold for $4, and shipping is free
compliments of the Chinese government subsidies. It is said that no
shipping container ever leaves there with any airspace in it, and I
Have bought a few things from China/Taiwan, comes same as in the States.

Had to send first tax returns via FedEx, that entailed a 2.5 hour drive
to Canberra and cost over $70.
Best not be thinking of moving here then... ;)
Besides, the cost of applying for immigration is going, or already gone,
way the fuck up. Think it's near $7k now. Cost me IIRC, about $3k, which
was right there, over a grand increase from when I first knew I was
going to move.
I'm sure I've seen it for a penny (+s/h) on ebay, but it was more an
observation of so much Chinese pricing than a standard for that
particular wire. I paid $2.90 delivered for 2x 3M after being outbid
on a dozen penny auctions.
