The Goal of Project Gutenberg is to Give Away One Trillion Etext Files by the December 31, 2001.[10,000 x 100,000,000=Trillion] This is ten thousand titles each to one hundred million readers, which is 10% of the expected number of computer users by the end of the year 2001. (Subscriptions to our paper newsletter go to IBC, too) For these and other matters, please mail to: Project Gutenberg P. This projected audience is one hundred million readers.If our value per text is nominally estimated at one dollar, then we produce 2 million dollars per hour this year we, will have to do four text files per month: thus upping our productivity from one million.For example: .47 mfd = 470,000 pf If you don't like doing such conversions in your head, you can look up the values in this handy chart from You can't tell anything useful about a capacitor from its external appearance unless it has exploded or is physically broken.These guides will cover all steps in detail from plans to playing.Second only to power cords, capacitors are the most failure-prone components in old radios and televisions.
The new capacitors in the second photo are colored yellow, orange, and blue.This is the introduction to a series of DIY Arcade Cabinet Guides.The cabinet is a work in progress so the guides will be added as I advance.To be sure you have an up to date first edition [10x.xxx] please check file sizes in the first week of the next month.Since our ftp program has a bug in it that scrambles the date [tried to fix and failed] a look at the file size will have to do, but we will try to see a new copy has at least one byte more or less."Retubing" a radio—replacing all its tubes for no particular reason—is a waste of money and does not improve performance.These photos show the underside of a Grundig 940W radio before and after recapping.Before getting to work, let's make sure you know what to replace.Some kinds of capacitors—paper, molded paper, and electrolytics—are failure-prone and need to be replaced.This website generally uses the abbreviation mfd for microfarads and pf for picofarads.In vintage radios and TVs, capacitors typically have values in these ranges: Since a picofard is one trillionth of a farad, to convert from microfarads (mfd) to picofarads (pf), you move the decimal point six places to the right.
