    You're an idiot, Roy.
    Wrong, Roy... again... as usual.
    Proof that you have no clue as to what skin effect is, much less how a
    cinch type connection functions.
    You wouldn't know.
    You're a babbling idiot, Roy.
    Solderoing and welding are two different things, Roy. I wouldn't expect
    you to know that, however.
    Go take a shower, dumbfuck troll.
    Go fall on a sword then, idiot.
    Just leave, Roy. And STAY the **** OUT! You stupid troll ****!
  2. Learn to comprehend what you read, you retarded little mental midget.
    You sound just like the guy on LOST when you say that. He was talking
    to a female when he said it though. That is about your speed. You should
    go hunt Roy up. You two would get along famously from the crap both of
    you post into Usenet.

  3. Tinning, in soldering nomenclature refers to dipping the stripped ends
    of a stranded wire into a solder pot after applying flux to it.
    "Pre-tinned wire" is a stranded wire where the entire length of the wire
    has been "tinned" (read solder impregnated) during manufacture, before
    the sheath (insulation) is added.

    It is entirely different than TPC, which IS TIN plated copper wire.

    Pre-tinned wire is made for manufacturing processes where labor costs
    have been pared down. It has nothing to do with shelf life other than
    how it relates to manufacturers and THEIR shelf life during a production
    cycle. It would oxidize at the same rate that a solder joint does, which
    is near NONE.

    I doubt seriously that you will ever find RoHS "pre-tinned wire"
    anywhere as it is likely a very poor wire being tinned with RoHS solders.

    PVC wire is more porous than tfe is, so it will allow oxygen to attack
    the wire, even though it is sheathed. TFE allows NO oxygen into the wire
    via the sheath, so it has a long shelf life regardless of the wire type

    So, TPC and SPC are true plated wire assemblies, and "pre-tinned wire"
    is a cheap way for a manufacturer to cut costs and give a cheaper product
    as well.

    Pre-tinned wire is MORE susceptible to fracture due to flexing of the
    wire as it is actually a single strand as a result of the way it is made.
    TPC and SPC are true stranded designs and allow flexure without work
    hardening the copper inside.

    Essentially pre-tinned wire sucks and is a lame choice for ANYONE
    trying to build a nice piece of equipment. The difference in cost is not
    enough to say that economizing by using it yields any benefit other than
    to expose the designer as a cheap, stupid bastard, at best.

    On the bright side, DimBulb clearly isn't on a NATed IP, so one can
    confidently filter him out with it.

  6. You're an idiot. I can obtain a new IP ANY time I wish, you retarded
    piece of shit.

    You dumbfucks are so goddamned stupid that you do not even know how an
    ISP operates anymore... if you ever did.

    Just so you know, I work with HAIPE v3 IP encryption gear every day.

    You ain't "all that", Larter. You are "all of nothing".

  7. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH! You're a fucking pathetic joke, Larter.


    So take your lack of knowledge and stick it where your head currently
    is... UP YOUR ASS.

  8. Bwuahahahahahah! Filter boy doesn't have a clue.

    Just so you know, idiot, this is all on the same cable modem.

    I *could* also get on the wireless and simply grab up any number of
    currently unsecured networks in the local area, but that *would* be
    illegal, as opposed to the fact that I have done nothing illegal on my

    Om the bright side, I can prod you upside da haed ANY TIME I want to,

    Gee, I never would've guessed, genius.
    You should learn to speak English.
    Can you? - I don't think so.

    I polished the roller coaster ATU in my 62 set with Brasso many years ago,
    but i think that was solid silver wire?
    My concern was to get a low resistance contact with the pick up wheel,
    rather than any surface effect.

    My comprehension is just fine, although your 're just as dim as ever,
    I don't waste my time on crap like Lost, nor do I hit on your mommy.
    I'll leave her laundry for you and Roy.

    So go ahead! You know you'll enjoy it.

  13. Shut up, Roy, you absolute retard.
