17.4 kHz

Over on his Facebook page, Ritchie made an offhand comment about still being able to hear 17.4 kHz. My first response was "huh?" The second response was a little smarter, involved Google and thus resulted in the link above.

So, now I know the word "presbycusis" and feel a little smarter. However, I also now know that I've lost the ability to heard much about 15 kHz which leaves me a bit sadder. Still, at least it gets rid of that annoying hum from the flyback transformer on older CRTs. Win some, lose some.

"Ready, Aye, Ready" was a slogan used by Canadian politicians to indicate Canada's willingness to assist the British Empire in any conflict. It remains in use as a motto for some of the Canadian military. It has almost nothing to do with the content of this blog.
