I began the Proxy issue BCP all over again. Started organizing what the problems could be. I noticed that the last info stated that they have the problem 4-5 times a day (and are restarting) but the XSTrans dump I got several weeks ago showed that the XSTrans process had been running for 4 days.
I think they are mistaken or lying.
Went over to Hooters after work, Erica then Marianna at the bar, Bruce, Steve, Brad, Micheal, Robert, Roger etc. The whole squad. Brooke, Erica and Hayley were drinking with the Brad squad, Hayley was quite buzzed. I stayed a bit too late, bought drinks for the gals and had grilled chicken and mac and cheese.
Came home and tried to watch Blade Runner 2049, too boring. Went to sleep.
Made my first box joint, not a full box though. The joint on the first try was really loose, The pins were too small I think, re-aligned and made the “kiss” on the blade a bit closer and then made the “fit” of the slot a bit tighter. I think I measured the blade without making sure the tooth was at it’s highest point. I kept forgetting to tighten and un-tighten things as I was setting stuff up.
I need to get what I need to do if things are a bit tight, or loose.
Need to get more .5 by 2.5 inch poplar tomorrow and possibly get over to Woodcraft to pick up some clamps.
Overcast and chilly in the a.m. then by noon it was sunny and highs in the 70s.
Spent the morning putting on the roof rack wasn’t so hard just kind of tedious and I start getting really hot ended up changing into shorts and a thinner shirt.
Over to Bass Pro and I picked up another pair of cameo pants and a belt. I wanted to look at Kayaks but they didn’t seem to have any. Looked around a bit and then went over to TMac for some double credit Monday. Went to Suwanee, got to chat with Beverly and a bit later Ellis and the JeffT both arrived about 2pm. They had some samples from Blue PAnts Brewery in AL that were pretty good.
My late lunch turned into an early evening and then I headed home about 4pm. Only had about 7 nooners.
Messed the rest of the evening watching TV and feeling like it was much later than it was since the time change back to regular time. It’s getting dark at about 5:30 now, shit. By six it was totally dark. It’s a great time
Built my Anet 3D Printer on the weekend of Irma, started on Saturday evening and ending on Monday. Mostly.
Printed two things, the new fan nozzle and a part for the feather robot. Both seemed to have gaps and holes, googled that and got this info.
1. You are under extruding. Raise the extrusion multiplier by at least 5%.
2. Slow down print speed.
3. You have loose belts and excessive play in the printer (the A8 has tons of play it’s really junky but fun). If you don’t add a tensioner to the belts, it’s tough to keep them tight.
4. Raise the temperature to 230. The A8’s temperature probe is off on my unit.
I ended up ordering 2 3D printer kits from Gear Best, two ANET A8’s. I messed up and ordered them with EU plugs, I then sent a message to Customer Support to have it changed. Anet A8 Desktop 3D Printer Prusa i3 DIY Kit
Also I’ve been watching a new Sailing/Scuba VLog on Youtube, Drenched
This Friday, federal appeals court in Washington D.C. decided that Federal Aviation Administration has no right to require hobbyists to register their camera drones and model aircraft. As SF Gate reports, this decision came after a drone hobbyist John Taylor filed a claim against the FAA in 2016. He claimed that they don’t have the right to force him to register his aircraft.As U.S. Circuit Judge Brett Kavanaugh states, “Taylor does not think that the FAA had the statutory authority to issue the registration rule and require him to register.” And according to the judge, he is right.Even with this decision, the restricted areas for flying unmanned aircraft remain the same. However, from now on, you can fly your camera drone or model aircraft in the permitted areas, but you are not required to register it with FAA as long as you use it for personal purposes.Drones used for crop or cell-tower inspection, real estate photography, as well as delivery drones, don’t fall into this category. They are considered commercial drones, and they still require registration.The registration system went into effect Dec. 21, 2015. From then on, as SF Gate reports, around 745,000 people have signed up with FAA. The new regulation (or better to say, the lack of one), could bring lots of issues.First of all, FAA uses the regulation system to educate users about safety. Also, when the owners register, FAA can track which of the users pose a risk. Without the registration, there is no way of tracing the drone back to the owner who poses the risk to others with irresponsible flying. For example, if someone hurts a person with a drone or flies in the restricted area, the authorities have no easy way of finding the pilot. Considering that the number of hobbyist drone users is rising, I wonder about the results this decision will give.What do you think? Does FAA have the right to require users to register, or not? Was this a good decision?[via SF Gate]
Georgia governor Nathan Deal has signed Senate Bill 85 into law, The state’s breweries will soon finally have the freedoms they have been so desperately seeking. The only downside? It doesn’t go into effect into September 1st.
