Questions About 101 Inches

Is the Edirol UA-101 any good?

Has anyone used a Roland / Edirol UA-101 recording interface on WinXP? Other USB2 DAW interfaces? I am shopping for a USB2 interface, 8 or 10 input unit with a couple of XLR ins going to mic pre's (the other ins can be line-level 1/4 inch, balanced or un), spidf and maybe optical. My key concerns are A/D converter quality, consistent latency and stable WinXP drivers. I am currently using a Tascam US-428 (USB1.1) which is noisy and has crapulent drivers. I desperately miss my M-Audio Delta 1010 which had amazingly clean A/D, solid dirvers, a great software mixer, and latency that never changed by more than 0.1ms (about five 44.1k samples). Alas, I am now on a laptop. The UA-101 has caught my eye but I can't spend so much without solid recommendations.

How to connect a BNC connector to a coaxial cable?

we recently bought some cctv camera's and recorder. everything works... the only trouble my electrician is having (yes he's from india) is how to connect the BNC connectors (which goes to the back of the camera) to the coaxial cable. can anyone decribe to me how to do it? the way we did it is to strip away the plastic cover to an inch, flip back the sheild so it goes over the plastic cover, then cut half an inch off the insulator, leaving the core wire exposed. then we just pushed and screwed it into the back of the connector. now.. it all looks good. but once the camera was plugged and seen, the quality was VERY BAD. not how it suppose to be. NOTE: there is no interferance with other cables and the distance is not a problem (as we tested it with a 20cm cable). all camera's are working 101% as was tested before purchase. are we doing anything wrong. please advise. Thanks in advance. picture of the connector: http://www.tvonechina.com/images/fullsize/bnc-big.jpg

Treehouse construction advice? (photos, video)

Another treehouse question. I'm almost done building mine, and I can't figure out why it's so wobbly. Take a look at photos & video, please, and let me know what I might do to make it more solid. No treehouse experience necessary, this is mostly carpentry 101. Degree of difficulty: I do not want any posts in the ground supporting the treehouse. I want all the support to be in the tree. I'm done everything but the railing and the floor decking. The plan was basically that I bolted two 2x8x12 beams to the two trunks of the tree, with eight inch lag screws, as primary support for the whole thing. Resting on top of that I put a platform made up of a 12x8 "box" of 2x6s, with 2x6 joists every 15 inches or so end-nailed to the 2x6x12s. T (I intend to add joist hangers) The two joists closest to the two trunks are bolted to them, also with 8" lag screws. (see photos). So basically there is support bolted to the tree longwise (the two 2x8x12s) and then, on top

How do I prevent my 4 channel amp from cutting out when the music is loud?

Setup: In a 2006 dodge stratus I have 2 JL audio amps. 1000x1 350x4. kdc-x994 Excelon deck. A 12 inch W7. two mclass memphis 6.5' components in the front and mid level jl audio 6'9s in the rear. I have a yellow top battery and i also have a marine deep cycle battery in the rear(hold 101 amps). Big 3 is done, all 0 gage wire. There is 4 gage wire going from both my amps and they are bridged to a 0 gage which runs to the battery. Problems: When I turn my car stereo loud, my system plays fine for about 2 or 3 songs and then the 4 channel amp will begin to cut in and out(I listen to hip hop music with A LOT of bass). I However this only happens when I am driving the car, when I am stationary it seems to play normally. I also worry because when I first installed this the computer system in my car blew out and I do not want this to happen again, as it cost me $1000 to fix it. I think it blew out because my battery is behind my tire and instead of hooking up my amps to my battery directly

Pimp My Pavilion.

What to do with a new laptop to make it run as well as possible? What unnecessary MS or HP bloatware should I remove? What should I install? (I'm talking utilities or system accessories, not functional programs like Firefox or an office suite, etc.) Or something in the hardware? Besides the basic internet and home office stuff, the main function will be to manipulate RAW and JPG images in Photoshop. No big gaming or anything, I'd just like it to start up fast and process images quickly. And I'm planning to leave Vista installed for now, so wipe it out and install Linux is not helpful advice. Here's the specs: * HP Pavilion GA341UA dv9548us Core 2 Duo T5450 * Operating system: Window's Vista Premium * Microprocessor: 1.66 GHz Intel Centrino Duo processor technology featuring Intel Core 2 Duo processor T5450 * Microprocessor cache: L2 Cache 2MB * Memory: 2045 MB DDR2 system memory (2 Dimm)

Best Checkpoint-Friendly Laptop Bag?

Best Checkpoint-Friendly Laptop Bag? Hello. I'm trying to answer the "what do you want for your Birthday question" and was hoping for some help finding a good Checkpoint-Friendly Laptop Bag. My last laptop bag was this Belkin one strap bag (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000S5CY92) which I purchased because I was looking for a comfortable strap. (The zipper broke recently, I don't know what I do to zippers. That makes 3 bags and one ski coat with broken zippers I need to get fixed) My criteria are: 1- TSA Checkpoint friendly. I don't want to take my laptop out of the bag. 2- Comfortable strap and otherwise comfortable to carry. I strongly prefer a strap that is well padded and in one piece. As opposed to those crappy badly padded sleeves that move and twist all around the strap. 3- Must hold my Dell D620 (14 inch scree) but no be so big that it's unreasonable to occasionally travel with my Acer netbook. 4-Well organized pocket

Is it possible to straighten your hair with a curling iron? If so, how do you do that?

The curling iron I have is a Vidal Sassoon model vs 101. Don't know if that helps, but I thought I'd let you all know anyway. My hair is blonde and goes about an inch below my eyes on the eyes, down to the point of my nose in the front, & 2 inches long in the back. AKA it's EMO hair. Yes, i do know that a curling hair is for curling your hair and not straightening it. I'd use a straightener but I don't have the money to purchase one.
