Re: DistoX tablet question

I ordered an Asus Vivotab Note 8last week and tried it out. Nice little tablet. But, the Wacom digitizer was DOA, the stylus didn't work out of the box. After spending a hour on the phone with Asus support, they finally wanted me to reinstall the OS from the recovery partition. I bailed at that point -- it was brand new -- and am returning it to Adorama.

It also doesn't keep a charge. It would not turn on when I took it out of the box -- with the current LiON batteries, devices usually come with some charge. I had to charge it for a couple hours before it would turn on. I then charged it to about 80%, turned it off, and went to bed. When I got up the next morning, the battery was dead again and it would not turn on.

Guess I got a lemon.


PS turns out the internet will provide many stories of the Wacom digitizer in this device failing, the stories report that the digitizer cable goes bad frequently.

Re: Third Generation Disto-X Progress

That's what I did. Color coding the alligator clips, color code the contacts, pay attention like you might fry a $600 device, and you'll be fine. Soldering the mini USB connector to the springy battery terminals wasn't mechanically secure enough for me, so I removed the USB connectors and used the alligator clips.

Re: Nice news article from LaGrange, Georgia

Good article, lots of good safety and conservation advice. I was curious why the captions repeatedly stated that Pettyjohns is in Floyd County. :shrug: Oh, well. Maybe it will keep a few folks from actually getting there, although any Google search would probably give you a pretty good idea of where it really is.

Nice news article from LaGrange, Georgia

This is a nice news article from LaGrange, Georgia, although I was surprised that it didn't mention the NSS in the article, although it did push for being safe and pushing similar ways of caving, as the NSS would do. :banana_yay:
