My feelings when it comes to building systems is that you at certain times, use legacy/old/slow hardware. If you can get it working ok and to your needs, then you can move it to newer/faster iron. By that time, it will be optimized and worth the initial effort.

A cool idea – A built-in wall vacuum
Part of a future project !
Specs for my first self-funded computer
This was on my UVI student web-server website. Amazing how long I have come.
Fumes in ABS 3D printing is real
Seriously. I am going to have to set print jobs after hours. This thing is definitely different to PLA.
The project that I am printing for is a dashboard camera called vEye.
A useless machine….
“If you can’t build a useless machine, how can you build a useful one ?”
– Stanford Mings
I build for me….
I build tools for my use. Hardware, Software, and services. I build not to sell, rent and/or give to others. One cannot solve the problems of others, until she can solve her own.
While I am supporter of Free Software, both beer and freedom, I most importantly support the freedom to do what you want. This is because I don’t want anyone telling me what to do with my life.
If I follow your instructions, know that it is because I deem it in my own best interest. Our goals have been aligned. Nothing more, nothing less.
Automata theory is the study of abstract machines and automata, as well as the computational problems that can be solved using them. It is a theory in theoretical computer science and discrete mathematics (a subject of study in both mathematics and computer science). The word automata (the plural of automaton) comes from the Greek word αὐτόματα, which means “self-acting”.
Veranda to dish….
On June 20th, I took the step to self reliance and purchased an vertical aeroponics system from Al Henry [email@example.com] a local(USVI) hydroponics system maker and this weekend harvested the first of many produce.
Here is the system
Plants are :
Thyme & Oregano
This is a time lapse of the system(click on image to start animation):
And the resulting meal that used produce from the system.
Heat shrink tubing alternative
That awkward moment when you realize you could have saved a bunch of money on heat shrink tubing by just holding on to the straws from all the drinking that you have done at bars and restaurants.
