@pho4cexa for sure done this with VMs, not sure why you'd opt for ECS and containers over EC2 though. I'm probably missing some context.

@robey still works for me. Just waferbaby updating a page to include the fact that they have a second dog.

Moderation queue caught up on. Sorry friends, not been on masto that much but I _do_ get the emails. Thanks again to anyone who reports anything, I actually follow relatively few people so I don't usually get exposed to too much garbage that needs to be blocked.

Every report matters / if you see something say something 馃挀

@eq you could target something like Xen's paravirt stack or virtio and then let a host OS deal with raw hardware access while your OS just deals with a basically standard basically sane driver interface?

@eft @darius or you could invite them here -- it's not townie only. That said, after reading Darius' guide I can see the value in building a place that's already for your friends and not mixing communities. Anyway. Our door is open! We're not near Dunbar's number yet!

@Lutrinus !!! I forgot to say but: if you do this, make sure you don't have any anything connected to the output of the amp, or it could be exposed to voltage its not expecting!

@Lutrinus At least if you swap the tubes you could learn if it's one channels' electronics (that you soldered) or one of the tubes which is mismatched. That might be a low-impact way to test. (With the power off for the swap, just to be clear).

@Lutrinus If you're not comfortable with voltages high enough to shock you, I am not sure how to suggest you debug this further :blobsad: -- it's not worth getting hurt over and these circuits a) can be tricky, even for experienced hobbyists and b) can be dangerous, even with a relatively low plate voltage compared to vintage tube designs.

@Lutrinus Okay, someone has done the good work of reverse engineering one of those boards (by another name, it seems) -- circuitlab.com/editor/#?id=9vn -- you should expect that the volts DC between the positive side of C8 (put the black probe here, it's the side without the white stripe) and the input to C10 should read around 28V. And at least, it should be the same when you move the red probe to C12 (which is the other channel).

Updated my ~town gopher ( gopher://tilde.town:70/1/~inso ) -- it is, of course, more writing about writing bullshit (and this toot is writing about writing about writing: :oh_no:). Anyway, inspired to start keeping an @eli_oat style tumbleblog again for the first time in years.

@Lutrinus To be clear, as you have two tubes (I was working with 12AU7 which is a stereo tube) -- there's a bias for each tube. You will want these to approximately match (There's actually a bias for each _half_ of my tube, it's really two-in-one, I guess). The biasing is what defines the headroom available for amplification and can affect the gain.

@nff @Lutrinus This is a cool kit and I've built one too, but just so you know the AliExpress versions are clones and none of the money is going to the original creators -- jyetech.com/dso-138-oscillosco -- I totally understand not everyone has the money to buy legit versions of things (I've bought plenty from AE) but wanted to point it out in case you didn't know but do care about stuff like that
