Re: RFI problem at the encoder switch #ubitx-help

Dave,
mainly because of annoying jumps from the encoder I added the KD8CEC software version 1.08. It is just great for many reasons. Not only solved the "jumping" problems but the RFI problems seems to have gone also - as so far..

If there were only 12 available when you ordered you may have to wait for the next batch. There were 72 when I ordered and I had to wait 1 month for DHL. There is usually a very large queue.

What do you mean?
It's right their in this sentence: 

>>   "their" is possessional, "there" is positional, required in this context.


My gripes are mostly about a good technical discussions diverging into multiple threads.
If you do start a new thread on an old subject then post links to both showing where the other thread can be found. 

Those posting without any history for context generally get ignored.
If it's not worth your while to spend 5 seconds including context,
it's certainly not worth it for thousands of forum readers to go find it.

If anybody want's to pick apart my use of USAish or my C indentation style (or lack thereof), have at it.
I'm quite capable of skipping over those posts too.

And while I'm at it, I've never seen any reason to get comfortable with C++.
It's always been straight C (K&R or ANSII) if I want to code for speed or size,
and for the last couple decades I've been resorting to Python for easy coding. 
This violates my primary beef above, I do try not to be overly pendantic.

Jerry, KE7ER

Removing insulation from fine wires

My wire stripper won't strip these small digital and audio wires. I used a sharp blade around the circumference of insulation but very labour intensive.
Any better ideas?

Re: Hijacked: C vs C++

Hi Jerry:

I've seen statements like this:

    It's always been straight C (K&R or ANSII) if I want to code for speed or size

many times before, but I've never seen any a priori proof of this or articles that discuss it. It seems that it would make sense to be so, but I don't know if that's pushed into the generated code or if it's an increased load on the parser given the semantics of C++ versus C. Some even say that, because C++ uses templates in the libraries, the code generator can perform more optimizations on the code because it "knows" what you are doing (What are the fundamental differences between C and C++?).


I don't have an answer, but I do try to follow the goals of C++ where it makes sense, especially encapsulation. If anyone has a definitive answer, I'd really like to know about it.

Jack, W8TEE

Re: Nextion 3.2 Display

A more thorough explanation, then:
"their" is possessional - it's the plural of "his/her/its"
"there" is positional - in this case the position/place is in the code and eventually on screen.
They sound the same but have vastly different meanings. This is partly American dialect and partly sub-standard education - not your fault, but your teachers in childhood and the system they operate in. It's akin to "your/you're" and even "yaw", and that dreadful "y'all". Really, don't get me started ... do 100 centers make a dollarer? and where the 'ell is the "L" in sodder and goff?
Better?

The BITX group includes persons for whom English is not a primary language.  It also includes
English speakers form all over the world who speak one of more of the many English dialects.
This results in deliberate or accidental use and abuse of the language.  It probably serves us best 
to allow a little flexibility in how we spell and speak any of the languages used here. 

Topic of this thread is "Nextion 3.2 Display"  and not how the language is being used, unless of
course it refers to C-language and coding for the Nextion Display operation and interface.

p.s., Allen: I'm not an English major either, just a kid who listened and learned. Our school leaving qualifications were School Certificate and University Entrance. In S.C a pass in English of 50% was mandatory. I managed 70%, and that was my 'failing subject', the lowest in the subjects I took and omitted when aggregated for the final 'Pass Mark'.

I've used one like the picture below for years.  I think I picked it up at Harbor Freight for a few bucks with a coupon.  I had always heard it was an awful tool but figured I would give it a try.  After a little adjusting it has been by go to for small gauge wire ever since.  I think Harbor Freight is US only but you could probably find something similar at Canadian Tire or your favorite purveyor of Chinesium finery.

I have an old pair of strippers I keep around for fine wires.  They are like these:


You adjust a sliding screw to set the size so they are not as convenient for stripping “regular” size wires but they can be adjusted for any size wire up to their maximum size.

Re: Removing insulation from fine wires

Rob Snow
 

I use my teeth.  I gave up trying to find a pair of strippers that would strip the insulation while not taking a few of a braid with it.  If it's really hard insulation, I'll score it first.

I'm sure this is not recommended.

I placed a photo of my 3.5 Nextion, CECs firmware 1.094. It is installed and running on a Ubitx version 3.Nextion has a list of 3d bezels for each size with downloadable stl files. I ordered a 3.5 bezel from 3d Hubs and it cost me $10. I think it looks pretty good on the face of my rig enclosure.
