was listening to one of my favorite albums (Healing by In Love With A Ghost) on the way home and pulled up to the house just as the last song ended 😌
request for electronics help (boosts plz)
i have a nice pair of Shure headphones that I left out one day and unfortunately the cats ruined the cable. There's enough good cable for me to salvage and reattach a plug, but I'm having trouble with the wires. There are 2 conductors in each insulator, a ground and a signal wire. The signal wires are red and green. They are also not like any wire I've ever soldered. If i just try to solder them unaltered, the coating gets very, very melted and it doesn't make a good connection. I thought they might be enameled or something so I tried sanding off the coating, but when I do that they completely fray apart and again, I can't get a good connection.
Anybody have experience with these kinds of wires? I'm stumped here, they headphones are really nice and I don't want to replace them when the fix is as simple as a couple solder joints, but I can't seem to get these wires to make a good connection
it just occurred to me that the word "naked" is spelled like the past tense of a verb. so I looked it up and now I know that "nake" is a word for the act of stripping. "I must nake myself before I bathe." "nake your sword of its sheath." this might have been obvious to someone, but I ain't no linguist.
