hello i am phaseshifter from aussie land

Post by phaseshifter »

i got into the sbc`s looking for the best board that i found ..come across ..it was an odroid that was my choice.i started with an xu3 .and brougt as many boards that i coud get my hands on from H=k over time....i strive for the expansion of technology...it turns over at an alarming.. pace in these times....

you cannot please all of the people all of the times...neither can you please every body.....and in my case sometimes none...not really all my fault...

some will know of the time i spent here...my memory is failing me badly and my time is short..ill health ...

the forum was great for me it gave me great satisfaction...
and a use of my time..it never felt like work because i enjoyed it so much....they say if you ebjoy your work you never reall have to do a day`s work..i believe that to be true..i have had many jobs over my time here and in the workforce

i enjoyed the H-K range of products...and chasing other products that would work in collaboration...with there products....

i am tired for the most part of my time these day..2019..etc..etc..

most of what you read below here is true about me..

god speed to al before me and those beyond...peace out....





i live in Australia the land down-under as it has been so called
had my first soldering iron when i was 8-10 years old i really dont remember exactly..but around there

i have worked in many fascists of the electronics industry over my life time and some tafe courses over the years also
from sales to management and a great deal of electronic assembly component level repairs
not just analogue but computers as well mostly X86 machines
but did work on a lot of earlier equipment that had a processor in it be it z80 or above or newer

i went to a local primary school and did my secondary year`s at a technical school
where i mostly was best with my hands in the trades i was a good not best student..
i started to gain knowledge in the electronics area at an early age
10 years old when i really started to take more interest and pay more attention .
but dabbled with audio gear in the early years leading into radio and so on televisions and so on
if it is consumer electronics i have probably worked on it or with it..

development boards started to take my interest
i have known about the small board machines for quite some time now
but i was hesitant to purchase one until i came across the need for a low power computer that packed a punch so to speak.."my first XU3"

I just did a web search for "small board computers"
there were many choice`s now..but a great deal of reading led to my choice..
the forum was the greatest sorce of knowledge though ..

i am not a gamer at all..i suck at them never could co-ordinate with the input devices really...
as for android i am slowly picking it up but this is not my mainstream..my stream is linux or windows..

linux is great i was an expert in "dos" so i had a good start not an avid coder at all but can work a command line without any problem

i have learnt through the fault finding process ..more knowledge in linux..and reading is a big key ..
not just the questions i work on but sometimes i just read through posts to see the answers

i love hardware..and let`s face it who does not

so i mostly use my odroids as web surfers and multimedia machines

thus led to my employment and with no formal quals...mostly self taught and experimented with hardware quite extensively


ok some breif work history

early 80`s and my first job sales assistant electronics retail ..moved into the kit dept then was the manager of the kit
dept..whilst also being in a well stores person at the same time well i knew where everything was due to the fact that i had to know

so left there in the mid to late 80`s went on to be a assembler of computer terminals and electronic modified equipment mostly pc and computer assembly xt machines as built up servers..etc..etc..

went on to a few computer related jobs..and went into more component level type jobs radio tradesman..electronic technician type work.etc..etc.was an apprentice as radio tradesman for a while..moved on went into radio transceiver assembly type work as a charge hand of the final assembly plant....moved on to more component level repairs type work...but lot`s of radio and electronic work on my own back..etc..etc..

so no formal qual`s,,but experience points through the roof ..dunno getting old now and cannot do what i used to do..health reasons..but still very keen interest in electronics..it`s very hard to stay up with the front-line technology moves so fast..lagg behind the front line..as tomorrows tech stuff is out of date so rapidly....

flagged with i`ll health..dementia.angina,mental i`lines.. it is a battle these days...but the sun abodes and such as life goes i awake rather slept and then wake to see a new dawn..battler i guess..

You win "the blurriest photo award" :)
Regarding your background, I too took up linux back in '99 because I missed the DOS cli :)

I may be mistaken but that appears to be an old school JBL car amp?

What am I looking at in the first picture, what is the project?

oh you mean on the white board that is my power supply ...that is the amp i run on my system.12 volt as you may have read all my system is powered of my switch mode..the whole box and dice the only 240 volt is my turntable and phono preamp..
.well one of a few i have..i often get amps from the pawn shop cheap like 10 aud and refurbish them dont mind doing audio gear at times....great Saturday arvo projects to fill in the time..i did a lot of audio gear in my early days as well...

So it's an audio system for your workspace?

That's actually a really good amplifier, with new caps it should put out about 160 watts 4 ohm @ 14.4v

yes it sounds great it`s a nice unit i got the preamp off the web u see it sitting above the xu4..

um for me stereo is just plenty you get the guy`s with their 5.1 ..7.1 channel gear they lose what stereo is all about..dont think i have any vinyl that boast`s quadraphonic..i only have 2 ears so stereo is superb with me..

cannot pump loud tunes for legal reasons "noise pollution" dont need the hassle of complaints..i rarely see it go over 30w per channel.music power..i aint deaf..and it`s quality not quantity at 0.05% dist most of these low power gear is fine... .

I enjoy 7.1 (don't have it), but I am definitely okay with stereo...An old Sansui receiver with a couple of CerwinVega make me happy. A TV needs 2.1 to separate voice from everything else, but few do.

I always wanted to build an amplifier from scratch, I never will.

I'm sorry to hear you have a hard time finding fellow companions... I know it's tough, but human perception is often tuned to negative aspects of life (don't have this, can't find that). The challenge is to find happiness in what's left of life. Sure it won't be as good as it was back in our youth, but this doesn't mean some happiness isn't waiting around the corner.
Regarding feeling connected to humanity - sure, the internet is a great equalizer. You're just as big as a voice as anyone else. Race, culture, religion or disability disappear. And it also offers you persistence - an advice you give today can still have an impact in the future.

There are many others in a similar situation as you - like the hikimori - a japanese recluse social group that refuse to join regular society. Look them up, maybe you can find something useful.

Regarding the meaning of life and everything there is I recently stumbled over this youtube clip that puts us into perspective... https://youtu.be/uD4izuDMUQA

So the moral of the story is to try to make the best of it, despite the hurdles life throws at you...

I know we don't talk a lot lately phase, I hope things improve your way and I certainly appreciate how much you have reached out to me during this difficult time.

Just a great guy.

Hey phase, remember when tubes powered amps and tv? Linux was a cd in the back of a slackware book(no internet). My first xt clone was a packard bell sbc. 2400 baud was fast... C++ was a white paper. So even if I could remember all that stuff, most of it is, well toast. Enjoy the sun always. And don't burn yourself with a soldering iron like I just did..
