0% Front-break, And There Is This Sound

Metal-on-metal; it is steel on aluminium (hence the sound). However, the important thing is to actually remember the break ratio front-to-back… 0% front-break, maybe 50% back and then there is this sound: Ring my beeee-lllll, ring my bell… There’s no bell or reflectors, fenders, lights or any other safety equipment mounted. No racks, baskets or… Continue reading 0% Front-break, And There Is This Sound


It is a computer and it currently holds the first place on the TOP500 list. It is Japanese. It is three times faster than the second fastest one in the World. The appearance? I am lost for words. How can something, anything; a machine even begin to look like that? The symmetry, the roof, the… Continue reading Fugaku

Not On The Wall XIII

They are the machines lifting the cabin (that you’re standing in) either up or down at speed (in this case +-26 floors). I was surprised… Continue reading Moving Parts

On the day the UAE Hope probe took its first image, the Chinese Tianwen-1 orbiter arrived at Mars. A black-and-white picture of Mars taken by Tianwen-1, the first snapshot from the Chinese craft. China’s Tianwen-1 Mars… Continue reading Where Are We?

It’s It Is Not Obvious If You Don’t Happen To Know

The basic set-up of a record player was featured just now on discogs.com and it suddenly vanished and was much harder to find… Here it is: The Beginner’s Guide to a Basic Turntable Set-Up. I really like this “educational” approach (to be honest I haven’t read the whole thing yet…). But the basics are: –… Continue reading It’s It Is Not Obvious If You Don’t Happen To Know
