That's sex on a stick. Nice design on those boards.


Using FlashAir W-03 SD card in machine. Access through wifi with FlashPAP or Sleep Master utilities.

I wanted to learn Binary so I enrolled in Binary 101. I seemed to have missed the first four courses. Big Grinnie

You replaced you switch, I had to replace my Xfinity Gateway, again.

People ask why I rent my modems (Gateways) from Xfinity (aka Comcast) - I usually get about a year out of one before it goes south and they tell me I have to replace it. Gave me their latest and greatest and even let me steal the battery out of the old. Did notice the speed difference.

Odd thing is the only way to activate it was through WiFi. Couldn't do it with a a wired connection. Once activated, wire connection worked fine.

After going through several ADSL modems (5 as I recall,) I started putting 40mm or 60mm fans in their case. There is no thermal design consideration. I can imagine what it's like in Tuscon. (Last time I was there was in 1978.)

On the activation via WiFi -- so many people just want WiFi.

I'm going to put fans in my Roku 3 and my switch.

If these were my modems, I probably would put them in a case with a fan, but seeing as I am renting and getting new modems at a price cheaper than buying them, I am not going to go through the effort of making an enclosure. These vent on the top and sides and I have plenty of airspace around them. Most of the heat is dissipated out the top and I have about a foot of open space above it.

While not modems, our electronics rack for our sound/video system at church has 6 large fans in it, plus the amps and power director have their own. Keeps everything quit cool and it is very quiet.

For Tucson, the high temp today is supposed to be the mid 80s. We keep the house at 78 and my office is the coldest spot in the house. :-)
