    | Given that you're talking about radio transmitters I'm surprised -- SHOCKED I
    | tell you -- that you don't know the reference. Acid core refers to acid core
    | solder, which is the kind used on pipes. Techs are not supposed to use acid
    | core on electronic circuits (it often voids the warrantee on components) but
    | are supposed to use rosin core solder instead.

    | That's Rule #1 in electronic tech....

    | Well, that and the notion that "black boys rape our young girls, but violet
    | gives willingly..." an unfortunately racist statement, but something else that
    | first-time electronic techs learn.

    That version is DEFINITELY racist !
    This is the PROPER version.

    Bad - Black
    Boys - Brown
    Rape - Red
    Our - Orange
    Young - Yellow
    Girls - Green
    But - Blue
    Violet - Violet
    Goes - Grey
    Willingly - White
    Silver - 10%
    Gold - 5%


    Actually, in HF Radio you don't use Rosin core either. You use Silver Solder.

    What the ****? I've never heard that before in any electronics class.
    Perhaps it has something to do with geographical location.

    What I do with this class of virus:
    1. Turn off System Restore and delete all restore points.
    2. Note the names and locations of infected files.
    3. Boot from something like Ultimate Boot CD
    <http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/>, and delete the infections.
    Turn System Restore back on when disinfected.

    The "black boys" version was done to differentiate between black and brown.
    It's a horrible phrase, but people remember their color codes.

    Regardless, the acid core reference was likely to solder. Tell me of any
    other thing "acid core" refers to besides music.

  8. I know the reference, I was referring to John Slade's laughable
    professional terminology (i.e., acid core capacitor).
    Yes, and the percentage and chemistry of the metals used change too
    depending on the application.
    I thought it was Ohm's law.
    ....get some now (precision rating).

    Anyway, I *do* know about capacitors, and my comment was *because* of
    that fact. The "blasting" cap in the omitted part of that post was a
    hermetically sealed paper dielectric and foil axial capacitor. John
    Slade is the one that mentioned acid core capacitor.

    BTW why are you replying to Dustin, quoting me, and telling John about
    solder?

  9. Horrible, but there's nothing particularly nice in the phrase about
    raping young girls ... willing or not.

    ....but as you said, people remember through mnemonics.
     
    FromTheRafters, Aug 9, 2010
  10. Although I've never heard such a term as such, I suppose it could refer
    to a type of battery or voltaic cell.

    I figured John was confused, I also associate 'acid core' with solder.

  11. What about the infected programs? That is, what about the preinfected
    versions?

    It isn't politically correct - no. But, it is memorable.

    But I remember contoversy over male and female plugs and IDE Master-Slave relationships.
    Political Correctness - overkill.

    I learned the Bad, Boys mnemonic but NEVER in ANY Electrical Engineering course was an
    electrolytic capcitor referred to as an "Acid Core" capicitor.

    Since I studied electrical engineering, not plumbing, to me it was always Rosin Core or
    Silver Solder.

    John, the fisrt time I have seen you post here :)

    Actually, not a good idea as if you are dealing with a file infecting virus then you will
    have *numerous* legiimate files being deleted and thus a corrupted OS that is no longer
    bootable.

    Either you use an anti virus and "clean" the infected files or, wipe and
    reinstall/re-image.

    I was specifically referring to virus files that are _not_ part of
    necessary executables. When necessary parts of the OS are infected,
    then I restore them from backup, which I think it preferable to trying
    to disinfect them, all too often an imperfect process.

    You weren't specific John so it needed qualification.
