Scots Nixie Tube Clock
The clock is 3.5 inches tall. The clock uses a transparent background and window frame that makes it blend right into your desktop. The clock is 3.5 inches tall and approximately 4 inches wide. The clock uses a two light bulb type vacuum fluorescent display. It has 7 digital display windows including time/date, 12/24 time, month/day/year, day of the week, and month/day. In addition, the clock has a 20 minute ‘tape’ clock display with a rotating pointer in a 16-dot array.
The clock can be used as a vacuum fluorescent display. In this mode, the windows will display a solid color or solid line pattern. The solid line display will display the current day of the week.
The clock supports a range of languages. You can select the clock to display the clock as English, French, German, Greek, Italian, Spanish, Russian, Czech, Hebrew, and Dutch. The clock also displays a range of moon phases in the selected language. For example, the clock is set to display the moon in the general crescent phase.
The clock will generate a 1.5 volt difference between the first and last windows. This difference is indicated by 1.5 numeral dots (1.5 dots for a minute of 10 seconds). In the ‘vfd’ mode, the first and last windows have no contrast.
The clock has three ways to start. It can be started by pressing the power button. It can also be started by pressing the power button on the back of the clock. It can also be set to start automatically when the PC boots up.
The clock comes with a user’s manual in English. We also ship the manual in the language of your choice.

Thank you!1. Field of the Invention
The present invention relates to a power control apparatus for a driving system of a compression-ignition engine and a power control method thereof.
2. Description of the Related Art
There has been known a conventional power control apparatus for a compression-ignition engine including a throttle valve provided in an intake pipe, as disclosed, for example, in JP-U-63-101696. The throttle valve is driven by an electric actuator (throttle opening control valve (TOCV)) in response to a control current from an ignition control apparatus. More specifically, an output control current of the ignition control apparatus is controlled to provide the control current, and the TOCV is driven in response to the control current. Thus, the opening of the throttle valve is controlled (throttle opening control). The ignition control apparatus adjusts the opening of the throttle valve in the state where combustion of a mixture in a combustion chamber (combustion space) in the compression-ignition engine is properly conducted (reduction of noxious components in the exhaust gas). Thereby, a load capacity is improved. Also, an inertial (torque) removal effect is enhanced.
A conventional power control apparatus for a compression-ignition engine will be described below with reference to a circuit diagram of FIG. 15.
An ignition control apparatus 2 outputs an output control current from a main circuit 100 to a TOCV 30 when the TOCV 30 is being driven, in order to cause the TOCV 30 to control the throttle opening.
The output control current is supplied to the main circuit 100 and a power supply terminal VB of the TOCV 30 via a branch circuit 112 (branching point A). The power supply terminal VB is supplied with power of a battery 1 via a branch circuit 111. A first switch 103 is interposed between the battery 1 and the power supply terminal VB in order to prevent the battery 1 from being consumed by the output control current.
The output control current of the ignition control apparatus 2 is also supplied
My comments: This is a nice looking clock. I found it on line and downloaded the files to my hard drive. There are a lot of options to change the color and I don’t have any problems with the clock on my test systems so far. It does use a lot of bandwidth though which is something that should be considered.

Enjoy!It seems only a few hours after the release of The Elder Scrolls: Legends, an early access online collectible card game, some cheaters are starting to show up and have started to wreak havoc in the game. Players are reporting that they are able to make unlimited cards and have no problem with their opponent’s hands.
According to PCGamesN, this issue started as the game was coming out last week, and there are a few ways to get around it.
The first is to alter the card ID on a card, allowing it to be the card you intended it to be. That way, you can add new cards in and be able to beat your opponent, the second is to use an online card editor to change up the card. This is a little better than the first, but not enough.
The third is cheating to get cards, this is the most involved of the three, but still simpler than the first two.
Some players are reporting that the folks at ZeniMax are working on a fix for the issue that should roll out in the coming days. The size of the fix for this issue is huge. The developers have had a full release of the game in the works for a while now and they are getting ready to launch the final version
