 2020-02-01, 06:37 #26 LaurV Romulan Interpreter     Jun 2011 Thailand 874210 Posts Here we have the feeling that retina will like this... We ordered few "612" micromotors (612 is the type, this is how it is called) from aliexpress, because we need them for some experimental project and we were mesmerized by how fast they can be, for such a small piece of junk (we payed like $0.3 for each, so you can buy 10 for$3 USD, they are called 612 because they have 6 mm diameter and 12 mm length, really small, and only weight 1 gram or so). The claim in the datasheet is 40000 rpm with no load, and we wanted to verify that, we used a small piece of sticky aluminum tape (which reflects the light) on the rotor line (which is protruding about 6.5 mm from the little cylinder) and a led+fotoresistor attached to a counter to count the light pulses and guess what, because our oscilloscope shows it in Hertz, i.e. pulses per second, and not per minute, the number that came out was... 666 As 666*60 is 39960, we guess the difference is related to the little load the shiny foil causes, haha. So, we will give the vendor 5 stars... (generally, we are very generous with the ratings). And that is how we remembered that we read sometimes ago an article about bible researchers could not agree (because it is not well explained there, and like everything in the bible, it is quite confuse) if the number of the beast is 666 or 612, or something like that. Is that a coincidence? (TM) Last fiddled with by LaurV on 2020-02-01 at 06:41

I masked the person, maybe he doesn't want publicity (otherwise he would post directly here). But the answer could fit anybody else, so to avoid future similar questions. Edit: re-reading the thread, I realized that the residues were posted in the very first post of the thread. Edit 2: s/poated/posted/g Last fiddled with by LaurV on 2020-05-06 at 12:27

That was me (), I did not thought that there was already a thread for this test, so I have not searched for it.

Sorry for the confusion, I did not mean to request the LL residues, but instead the result of your P-1 run(s) to continue the calculation with a bigger stage 2. I know, that's nothing that needs priority.
