  1. R.I.P. Stephen Hawking...

    I am sad as well. His mindset and humour will be missed.
  2. Has Elon Musk uncovered a UFO?

    The ISS also circles the earth several times per day. Havent seen the live footage though, just guessing from the photos in this thread. Different angle than in the shot below
  3. Addendum: Google Photos does not support embedding on external sites anymore, that stopped when they changed Picasa to GPhotos for "unknown" reasons https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!msg/photos/CX3DpdfaSME/jtrhT5b9BQAJ
  4. The issue with Google Photos is, that by default these images are not public (actually thats not an issue but a good feature), so even with a Link you need to login to Google to prove that you are one with access. You can make Photos or Albums public, then you can use the link but it still wont embed the picture into your post. (At least I havent found a good enough way) What I do now for single pics, I upload them to imgur.com since they allow pretty quick and anonymous uploads that can be embedded into a post. If necessary I edit the pic first in my preferred editing tool to blur or remove privacy relevant elements.
  5. DIY cushion suspension for kingsong pedals

    @LEO_LEO that is true, but an Air-cushion is working whether you stand or run. It dampens the light vibrations from the road that still get through the dampening effect of the tire. @UKJ If you want to be supercorrect you have to pronounce it like the old greeks. Since its used as a name for an american Company, I pronounce it with a long E at the end. @steve454 I am always happy to spread some knowledge where I can
  6. DIY cushion suspension for kingsong pedals

    My shoes all come with a built-in air cushion Hint: They are named after the greek goddess of victory.
  7. Dont get me wrong, I am speaking only for myself here: I drive my car daily and see a lot of these more powerful ebikes that go 50kph + and I also have seen several near crashes because the cars dont have a feeling how fast these bikes really are compared to the cars own current speed. I wouldnt want to have to emergency break from 50 down to avoid a crash on a single wheel - ever... Thats probably just because I am old... now get off my lawn you kids!
  8. Help. All lithium ion cycles banned at USC

    Wait, no Li-Ion Devices? That would be the first Smartphone, Tablet and Laptop-Free University Campus! These Devices all use li-ion batteries and can catch fire as easily btw.. or are they only allowing iPhones (no Samsung since they lit their Note on fire) ? Just ridiculous, when people that have no idea how stuff works make rules...
  9. Aw Man I Hate Youtube.

    Call me when you get tickets for the Pilatus Railway, I'll wait for you at the top to have a beer or similar
  10. Has anybody Heard of this?

    Compaq was bought by HP and was downgraded from a brand on its own to a productline of HP PC Division. So nothing really survived there but the trademark. Acer still is their own boss afaik.
  11. Whos the wanker?

    another case of, whatever you can come up with, theres already porn about it
  12. shots fired!
  13. The Photo Thread

    May the "you think that's air you're breathing" be with you
  14. Burning Man and Wheels

    Been there, done that, but didnt have a EUC back then. Heat is definitely a issue on longer strolls. At night though, when you really want to be out and about, the LED show would be awesome In hindsight I also thought it would be a fun (but maybe not a good) idea. Just be aware the dust there (and you know it going for the 9th time) will get in everywhere, the IP55 Protection wont help a bit. The best that could happen is it still works and needs a thorough cleaning, worst, you got a bricked EUC that cant be repaired because of all the dust. I know of several people that lost 3000+$ cameras to the dust Charging could be another issue unless you have a generator going for a few hours every day. We brought a Golfcart with us and it was rather problematic to keep it fueled and running. Then there are some spots of playa dust where you suddenly sink in, not a problem on a bike, but it could be on one wheel. Another problemzone could be the speedlimit of 5mph and/or you might need to register it as a mutant vehicle beforehand. That was our Ride back in 2012

    That does not make it sound any better, upping the price for the exact same product by any amount of % will always be received badly. Innovate it and then people will consider the higher price. This way they will just look at other products.
