It's in alpha, not beta.


Get ready for Steve Carroll to join the beta team and create massive
problems by attacking everything snit does.
Best to block Steve Carroll if he tries to join.

I spent years not countering the false accusations of sock usage. I
seriously underestimated the number of people who bought into the
“everyone
is Snit” gag.


'Snit' is a somewhat odd-sounding pseudonym.

Would you care to explain the origin? I'm not demanding, just mildly
interested. It really matters not one jot.

From an old gag when I was in high school and then college in Las
Vegas... stood for "Southern Nevada Institute of Technology".

Now just use it out of habit and to keep a consistent name. You can find
"Snit" being used by me going back to 1994 or so (though with different
emails).

I cannot understand why people would focus on me so much. I have some
knowledge about a few things but am a pretty crappy scripter and not a
programmer. What is the obsession for? But whatever... happy to be
talking more about tech here.

Actually making a video as I type this -- Linux is installing in a VM.

I couldn't phrase things any better than Snit!

Thanks, Snit! :-D


Snit's actually on point about this. Example for me, I use Windows,
however I do have an iPhone and last year purchased an Apple Watch 4
which BTW is an amazing device.

So, getting it working involved charging the watch and placing it near
the iPhone. It picked up and configured networking, applications,
configuration options as they were set on my iPhone and so forth.
I was impressed.

Now would I pay 3x the going rate for a Mac as compared to a PC for
that type of integration? Or even more since I build my own systems.

Probably not, but the Apple watch is not much more expensive than the
other alternatives and it's the only one, currently, with an approved
ECG measuring capability, at least in USA.


I have heard that it saved some peoples lives when having a heart attack
by dialing 911 and letting the dispatcher know where you are at.
The guy woke up at the hospital wondering what happened.

However there is no denying that Apple has the integration between
devices down to a science, as long as the user is willing to fork over
the cash for that option and many do.

If Apple didn't have that it would be pointless. Their hardware their
software, what else?


I would say in this case the iwatch is required for lone seniors. Much
better than the other devices. But not much else.

It is semantic distinction that adds nothing to the understanding.

You're referring to a UPS (uninterruptable power supply).

They come in modified sine and pure sine.

https://www.researchgate.net/figure/...fig2_261048059

You will also find a lot of fanciful waveform diagrams,
not all of which are correct.

https://imeon-energy.com.au/wp-conte...-sine-wave.png

*******

Inverters produce square waves (cheap ones, from the past).
And in the dim and distant past, square waves were OK for
a lot of the "naive" loads, like a light bulb perhaps.

*******

Modified sine and square waves were bad for
some of the first Active PFC ATX power supplies.
You could get "coil noise" from the front end,
indicating it wasn't happy or wasn't the right
design for it.

Later, the Active PFC front end was changed (somehow),
to make these supplies less upset by non-sine signals.

The first PFC was designed on an algorithm of
"the current draw waveform should look like the
voltage waveform from the line". This was intended
to reshape the current draw waveform, as well as
bring it into phase with the voltage waveform.

If you were at the campsite, and connected a
desktop PCs to a car battery plus a 200W inverter
(square wave), the desktop PC with APFC would go nuts.
In some cases, the PSU would switch itself off. Or,
it could make "weird noises" in the coils because
of the PFC trying to make a square current waveform,
from a square voltage waveform.

The modern designs must be doing something different.

Summary: If you know a PC has a power supply which
is bad for this sort of thing, stick with
pure sine UPS boxes.

This one, for example, runs *two minutes* at full power
according to the advert text near the bottom of the
main pane.

So naturally, you're not expecting miracles for $190/$210
or whatever the real price is.

The spec tab gives a different number.

https://www.newegg.com/cyberpower-cp...-133-_-Product

AVR
VA Rating 1350 VA Watts 810 Watts
Full Load: 3 Minutes
Half Load: 9 Minutes
10.40" x 3.90" x 14.20"
Weight 20.30 lbs.

This one is $369.99. You're paying by the pound. The
formfactor of the battery, may be easier to find a knockoff
battery for it later.

https://www.newegg.com/apc-smc1500c-...=pure+sine+ups

AVR
VA Rating 1440 VA Watts 900 Watts
Full load: 4 Minutes
Half load: 11 Minutes
8.45" x 6.70" x 17.30"
Weight 45.00 lbs.

You can test this with 9 x 100W lightbulbs, because the
filaments will be hot during switchover, and there won't
be nearly as large a load surge as with cold light bulbs.
900W of incandescent light bulbs would draw 1800W when cold.

Neither unit mentions switching time, which is likely
to be 8msec to 15msec. These aren't double conversion supplies
with zero switchover. Finding a cooling fan on a UPS, is
a hint it's a double conversion type.

Paul

Well if you want to put it sort of in terms of the Linux kernel, the
Chevy 283 V8 engine does not cease being a Chevy 283 V8 engine when you
do so.
