This past week, Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway agreed to buy the Duracell brand battery products division from Procter & Gamble. Though primarily known for its alkaline batteries, Duracell also makes NiMH and lithium rechargeable products. Some analysts speculate that the deal could have broader implications for the power technology industry.

Some analysts say the acquisition of Duracell by Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway could have implications in the areas of wireless powerand electric vehicles.

Some analysts say the acquisition of Duracell by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway could have implications in the areas of wireless power
and electric vehicles.

For example, wireless charging is one technology that could see a boost. The new investment may accelerate Duracell’s plans to place PowerMat charging devices in Starbucks coffee shops, which number more than 21,000 worldwide. Another area of speculation revolves around Berkshire Hathaway’s investment in the Chinese electric car maker BYD and the possibility that this deal could be a way for Duracell to expand into batteries for vehicles and the power grid.

This is my Download Dreams torrent, which contains original purchased videos, and some I captured from VK.com and YouTube, many of which are no longer available. All are in folders based on where I got them from, and all have screencaps. It contains solo girl mudding, girl-girl mud wrestling, and one wetlook video


Captured VK Videos

I wanted to preserve the as-is quality of the streamed VK.com videos, so I used a hardware Elgato HD capture device on HDMI loopback on my laptop. VK do not allow downloading of adult videos off their site, so this was the best way to capture them, rather than using buggy software capture utilities, which 99% of the time don’t work.

Any lagginess in the videos wasn’t my fault, I captured them as-is using my Core2Quad Extreme gaming notebook. I cut the DownloadDreams starting idents off, as they get annoying!

I’ve had this problem a few times on my laptop. It occurs mostly when the power suddenly goes off and it switches to battery. You lose all capacity monitoring, and can’t tell how much is left. The system tray icon changes to this:

no battery detected

Microsoft’s forums are hilarious. Their “Most Valuable Professionals” give the funniest canned cut ‘n’ paste responses, from, “Your power driver is corrupt” to your “Windows needs reinstalling!”. I know exactly what causes it, and it ain’t anything to do with “power drivers” or corrupt Windows. It’s the little monitoring chip in the battery. Like a lot of integrated electronics, it sometimes gets confused. Sudden switchovers from mains to battery tend to cause it, especially if there’s any surges from the battery as it kicks in.

The age old advice of “Reboot!” is the wise advice. If that doesn’t cure it, turn your machine off, remove the mains and battery, and hold your power button down to discharge the circuitry in your device (apart from the RTC circuit, but this doesn’t matter), that should cure it. Removing the battery opens the circuit to the sensing system in the battery, and resets it.

Simples. I hate MVP’s, they go on a 5 day course and think that gives them a Professional title? I’ve done MVP courses, but have the skills and years of software and electrical experience to further and back them up
