Basics

  • This Page goes over User:Eric 's dev work for OSE
  • Also has a sort of "captains log" of their work / daily thoughts
  • Not always consistent, so double check their Contributions Page for more specifics on projects/edits
  • Hours Logger has been locking me out for the last few days. The error code/message is below. I tried logging out then back in (also added OSE to a list of "sites that can use cookies" in the google chrome settings)

Eric Log

11/13/2022

  • Somehow hit the wrong button or whatever, so the remainder of my chrome tabs we lost to just general search history, so may have been some data loss there
  • So i'll skim history and see if there was any of the things i was mentioning there
  • If not i'll move on to finishing backing up Mobile Links, especially the stuff on using Solid Particles (Typically it seemed they used Sand ) as a Heat Exchange Fluid
  • ^ was from a few hours ago, submitting this to document that + be able to close this tab
  • Still short on time, recovered most of (?) tabs with manual digging
  • Have 1 Large Window of Small Diesel Engine / Smallest Diesel Engine / Heavy Fuel Engine etc stuff (+ Some Fuel Specs on the various Jet Fuels / Standard Marine Diesel
  • Have 1 Small one of FeF/Old Media Stuff
  • Have another on One Community Global and Open Source Ecology Commonality
  • Everything else has been dumped into Eric's Data Buffer Page
  • Don't have time to clean things up/do much else
  • Also later need to document 3d printing i did this weekend

11/12/2022

  • Drastically reduced the amount of loose tabs i have, only have 2-ish groups in separate windows to cover now
  • Then Phone Links
  • Crashing Now, so i'll clean all this up later
  • Also sorry again for filling the recent changes area, i tried to make many of them minor edits so that filter should work

11/5/2022

Recent Events/Activities of Interest

  • This week at school we finally went into the lab for the first time on Thursday!
  • Kind of got "thrown in the deep end", but just were doing basic residential wiring with Romex
    • May not have been romex, i'll need to double check (and eventually document...like i TOTALLY ALREADY DID with all the welding stuff i learnt /s ), but it was the plastic coated conductors that negate the need for Wire Conduit / Armored Cable etc
  • Not much else to report besides that

Wiki Work

  • Moved the pile of links off the top of this page to Eric's Data Buffer Page to make this page more in line with it's actual goal
    • Granted may want to move the "Recent Events/Activities of Interest" bit to another page as well, what are the thoughts on if that is needed?
  • Anywho Today I Mainly added information on Fuel Cells / Gas Turbines / Combined Cycle stuff
  • Also added category links to + read the edits being by other people (hope it didn't flood the recent edit page too much / step on any toes, i tried to make them almost all "minor edits" so that filter should help!
  • Also mentioned a bit of information on Surface Treatments / Thermal Barrier Coatings but just barely mentioned it; that stuff+CVD based Diamond / DLC etc are another area of stuff i need to document
  • I did get another window of chrome tabs emptied out today, and a decent chunk of phone links

To-Do For Tomorrow

  • My phone has:
    • A Paper Analyzing Current FES Tech
    • Less Toxic Flare Compositions (+ Recipes, i was wondering about road flares the other day and what all goes into them, was looking for alternatives for various stuff and found that link)
    • Some good Induction Furnace Industry Standards (also some of those are buried in my YouTube history and/or a YouTube playlist depending on if i made one already or not)
    • Stuff on Soy Sustainability Assurance Protocol (I saw this on a label, and thought it reeked of Greenwashing but it may have some merit to it, needs looking into
    • Laser Excited Phosphor based light stuff
    • Low Impact Hydroelectric Dams (Bit of an Oxymoron, BUT i was hearing on NPR about Lake Mead being so low they may not be able to do the "Artificial Flood" procedure that essentially simulates seasonal flow increases/floods downstream which helps sediments behave right or whatever. That combined with Fish Ladders / Eel Ladders / Potentially even Sediment Bypass etc and so on would lead to it not having too much of an impact i'd imagine, an they allow for Constant (short of Climate Change Worsened/Induced Droughts...) Renewable Power, and Pumped Hydroelectric Storage so if the ecological/sediment issues could be resolved (and all the water isn't gobbled up for animal feed so that those downstream + the river delta get water!) they are a neat solution
    • Stuff on Dish Antennaes / Parabolic Antennas / how they are made
    • The page on the Sawmill (I think "Way out West Blog" was doing some logging work recently so i thought they may want to check that page out, so i need to go in and make sure it is all interlinked well and whatnot probably)
    • Stuff on Ropeless Trapping / Ropeless Crabbing etc
      • Was mentioned on NPR in relation to whales i think, may have use in 3D Aquiculture and could probably use some OSHW for cost reduction (granted dev time, money, and supporting an industry that basically is just overfishing...)
    • A few (~3 or so) more Gas Turbine / Fuel Cell articles
      • One mentions "Ultra Clean Coal" which seems to be a term for Coal Upgrading via leaching that basically removes every mineral except the carbon within reason
    • Something on if DME can be used in Spark Ignition Engines
    • Sloped Bottom Tanks
    • Syntin / Russian usage of it in Soyuz spacecraft instead of RP-1 (May just be more wikipedia-side edits for that one, although i do have some rocket links as well lol)
    • Artificial Topaz / Spinel (For engineering, not just aesthetic, applications)
    • Well Perforation
    • FARO 3D Scanners and Coordinate Measurement Machines
    • Fire Ant mound killing via Liquid Nitrogen injection
    • Slurry Ice generator paper
    • Falling Particle Receiver for CSP
      • Seems like Carbon Materials would be great due to dark color and high thermal conductivity, so carbon negative materials?!? (Short of burning due to the temperature!)
    • Blueprint Symbols (I don't know if they are documented on here, but making pages (and maybe plugins for CAD/MSH3D (If they don't already exist) ) is probably a good idea
  • If i can somehow get past that the next window is mainly on documenting other groups and trying to get database information parity (or whatever the term for "we cross compare and have all of eachother's data")
  • The other windows seem to be mainly loose links that need categories etc, stuff on Bearing Lubrication / Grease Guns / Automativ Lubrication Systems , and if a Filament Dust Filter is needed
  • All in all plenty of stuff to do tomorrow

Wiki Work

10/27/2022

Recent Events/Activities of Interest

  • First time back on-wiki in a while
  • My Iphone6 Flat Out Died (Pretty sure it is the Charge Controller/Power Circuit module, but i lack the Micro-soldering gear, experience, and just non-shakey hands so i'm just going to need to hope those damn electrons stay in their slot in the Flash Memory until i get the cash to send it off to someone who can do that (rates seem pretty high from what i've seen, although most are in water exposure applications, when, if what i have seen is correct, this is basically remove module a, and insert a new one OR the quick (but moderately more expensive if kept long term, rather than just used as an overblown chip reader) chuck the flash memory into a new "body" method
    • Really wishing i had that Big Box Store Sized Makerspace, a Cleanroom section, and some connections right about now!
    • Due to parent's phone plan and some promotion though i did get one of those iphones with Time of Flight Sensor / Lidar based 3D Scanning, so that has been interesting to mess around with (Haven't done any 3D Scanning Based Quality Control or made any of the scans into 3D printable Files yet, but that is supposedly doable (albeit don't expect Industrial level scan quality, so much more cleanup will be needed)
    • Did loose a pile of links/photos though due to not completing the backup process before that happened (my Seagate Wireless Pro is being quite glitchy (the app keeps on crashing) so either some modification of that, or some sort of Open Source Portable NAS / Open Source NAS is in order...granted again Money and Chip Shortage...
    • Also i was looking into something like the FairPhone / PiPHone , or even the AGM Glory Pro etc to get the Thermal Camera mainly (ir Night Vision would be neat, but much less practical) but due to a number of reasons that didn't work out, but the 3d scanner will be interesting and i am not in a place where any of this should be complained about also, thankfulness for having the resources + things i have etc!
  • ANYWHO that caused a bit of data loss/chaos
  • Also being a Full Time Student at FSCJ's Electrician Program now keeps me busy (Summer with the In-Person Industrial Hygiene and Water Resources + Online Environmental Science was much less time)
    • We are almost done with the Online "Blended Learning" Computer Lab Work (Which has been all the Ohm's Law Circuit Analysis (For DC and AC, from Series, to Complex Circuits, Wire Resistance Calculations / Wire Loss, math related to Motors/Generators (i'm understanding more of the "how" of BLDCs and those Mostly 3D Printed Electric Motors etc), and after we complete a module on Residential Electrical Code we will move into the (Hands On)Lab-Lab
    • I don't know if the pictures are on my old phone, or the new one, but the class had a tour on one of the first day of classes, so i took some photos, it basically had:
      • "Skeletonized Walls" Similar to what a construction site would look like for us to practice running wires/doing boxes etc, a Conduit Bender , etc
        • Also some sort of Shop Vac based Line Pulling system similar to a Pipeline Pig almost, but for Wire Conduit , but that was rarely used, but i was shown it after hearing about it in some story of jobsites past and asking about it
  • Will be starting a paid Union Apprenticeship assuming all things go as planned, this Spring, so that will be nice (Granted may just be being a human trencher to be honest, but gotta start somewhere i guess, and most Union work seems to be Commercial/Industrial down here ~~(Due to Florida being a Right to Work State (Real Orwellian naming as per their MO...)~~ so it may just me more really long wire runs etc
  • I finally picked up my OSHA-30 card!
    • Now i can whip it out like an FBI Badge! /j
    • On a more serious note that will just be nice to have
  • I was looking into the other classes, the NCCER Core , HAZWOPER , and even a Forklift Certification class! (But that may have just been that one day, which has long since passed, and supposedly most jobs make you do a 1 day class when they hire so it doesn't mean too much short of looking nice, and how it has become an internet joke)
    • The original coordinator seems to have resigned/disappeared or something, so there was a decent communication gap there
    • I'll need to get the new person's contacts Monday, and get that all nailed out
  • Also FSCJ had an auction for old equipment and i managed to pick up
    • A Binocular Microscope (Short of the Light System being Broken (Burnt Fuse on Arrival, Probably Broken Light, since a relacement fuse didn't seem to work), threw my smartphone as a flashlight below and it worked great so a lab grade optical microscope for 10 USD or so is a win in my book!
    • A FAA Certified? "iGATE Dual Engine Flight Simulator" ! (For 20 USD, also came with an entire tower pc + CRT Monitor !) (Granted it is missing a parallel cable or two, and the rudder (need to contact them on that, it may be lying in a closet somewhere etc, even if so not too complex to replace compared to the other crazy complex and aesthetically important chassis type thing)
      • Everything booted up fine, main issue was the io parallel cable being missing, so no io that way
      • Haven't cracked open the tower pc for seeing what components it has and probably De-Dusting, but it has a working CD Drive, and although it is currently running Windows XP (probably for the old proprietary Flight Simulator Software), either with a Dual Boot system, or just upgrading the OS, Moving the Software (or ditching it for FlightGear ) could leave me with a giant NAS, and/or a VERY capable pc (Full Size Graphics Card (VR, GPU Acceleration for CAD/Blender, etc), Pile of RAM (For Chrome Tabs /j) )
    • A JVC GY-DV5000U Broadcast DV Camcorder
      • This is a bit of an enigma, turns out it did not come with a battery (or tape cartridge lol, although i will probably just use the various video-outs)
        • I Ordered a 4 Prong Power Adapter, but it turns out it needs an XLR style "Smiley Face" / Arc type 4 prong, not "Square" style 4 prong so i'll need to return that, and get another in the future
      • It is a bit of a long shot, but for 5 dollars if i can get it working it would be a quality camera (in terms of lenses, color depiction, optical zoom, microphones, etc), but also have the disadvantage of lower resolution and 4x3 Aspect Ration (Although this would allow for A e s t h e t i c / Nostalgia value, i was thinking of making How It's Made (TV Show) / Modern Marvels (TV Show) / Industrial Footage type content for modern stuff (or even personal / OSE projects), but with the 4/3 aspect ratio/ a e s t h e t i c, and old stock music for a kind of nod to all that stuff i grew up on.
    • Mainly went there to get a welder or the flight simulator (this is what they said they had mainly), but got the other odd stuff since resalers got most of the other stuff for crazy amounts, someone got like 10 or so old + different model (thus not Part Commonality etc if they were making a new shop) welders for prices probably beaten by new budget models, ESPECIALLY if they plan on making a profit
    • The other impulse buy would have been a lab grade autoclave, which would allow me to do all sorts of mushroom/microbio stuff, but someone else got it i guess

Misc OSHW/Maker News Worth Mentioning (That i will make pages on making this section redundant)

  • Opulo went to ERRF and has been getting a pile of press for their LumenPnP machine, so that has been great to see
    • Also shows how powerful getting a booth at events can be
  • Open5x is having a similar experience, and it will be interesting to see if their OSHW and it's publicity causes a 5 Axis FDM Slicing, and Non-Planar Slicing
  • The YouTube Channel Blondihacks finished their Big Steam Engine Build
  • Vez3D is getting close to shipping their ultra-high flow Goliath Hotend (mainly discussed on their YouTube Community Page
    • They were one of the leaders in the Speed Benchy challenges (along with MirageC who is currently doing amazing objective tests of hotends), so given they push filament printers to their limit, i am excited to see the speed they will pull off with custom hotends, (given that that is the limiting factor now that CoreXY projects like VORON , RatRig , and HevORT are using crazy fast axis to the point they are using Servo Motors on all axis and even the extruder, and High Temperature, High Flow Nozzles etc

Off-Wiki Work

  • Decent amount of Wikipedia Work (Would hear about something in passing and look it up, maybe make a redirect, or add links i found to the talk/discussion page (their editing standards are high, so i don't want to barge in there, short of maybe adding an external link etc)
  • I finally used up that first included 1kg Spool of Prusament Filament, and Loaded a New One ( Black Polyterra PLA now) so the 3D Printer has been chugging away
  • I also have many more links on DME as a fuel, and some more information on Autogas (Aka LPG / Propane as an engine fuel), and CNG fuel mods
  • Also many links on Gas Turbines / Fuel Cell - Gas Turbine Combined Cycles , Non-Catalytic Partial Oxidization based Fuel Reformer that can turn nearly any gaseous/vapor fuel into syngas/light hydrocarbons (fit for a SOFC ), and some other misc links

Wiki Work

  • Misc Small Stuff In-between Last Update and This One
  • Cleared through + documented one window's worth of tabs
  • In doing so finished out the Thermal Insert Press page for the most part

Plan Going Forward

  • Next "Big Chunk" of tabs will be some more stuff on:
  • That may not take too long given it is mainly link dumping + creating a page or two
  • If that can be done, the next window is mainly documenting OSE Related Groups + Synchronizing Information which is a way bigger project
    • Getting the Basics Down + Making Bookmarks may be the way to go
  • The two of those things + trying to watch the recent meetings on Marcin's channel will probably be plenty for the weekend.
  • Also need to get the OSE Discord Set up on my New Phone + Catch Up there
  • Unsure on hours, and it is getting late here, so i'll log off for today and calculate those tomorrow etc

9/6/2022

  • It's been a while, so there is probably a gap of a few small edits + redirect creations / category additions etc

What i've been up to recently

  • That Welding Program i was in last year was obviously done
  • Did a mixture of Environmental Science and Industrial Hygiene classes over the summer to see if i would be interested in that route/fill time
  • Currently doing the Pre-Apprentice Electrician Program at FSCJ now
  • I got a Prusa Mk3s+ kit somewhat recently (that almost wage-thefted walmart check finally came in), and built that
  • Have been using it since, i printed various calibration prints (short of Dialing in Prints / Making/Tuning Filament Profiles etc) it seems to be working great
    • Only issues are occasional mild stringing, and issues with [Overhangs (3D Printing) | Overhangs]
      • Although supposedly the part cooling on the Prusa is kind of lacking
    • I got some various tools for this to make the workflow smoother (i'll need to document this / post reviews etc)
    • I got the Diamondback Nozzle (Which reminds me i need to make pages on Polycrystalline Diamond , Diamond-Like Carbon , Lab-Grown Monocrystalline Diamond , Carbon Glass etc )
      • I haven't installed it (or even opened the box yet) due to an abundance of caution in: Installation Torque, Potential issues with these "insert based" nozzles (as opposed to a monolithic chunk of brass etc), and Lead Content in Brass (i don't think it is, but it may be soldered in there / brazed with Leaded Solder as well
        • It's a bit overkill to be concerned about all that probably, but it was a decent chunk of money, and i also only recently became aware of lead in brass, so need to dive into the data on that (does any of the brass flake/abrade off into the plastic, thus adding an additional aspect of complexity to Food Grade 3D Prints , again overkill, but lead is no joke)
      • ANYHOW this was so i could print Carbon Fiber Reinforced Filaments , Glow in the Dark Filaments (For black + glow in the dark bicolor signs, as well as maybe a goofy Halloween decoration or two!), and just not have to worry about nozzle abrasion no matter what i throw at it
  • This also has me thinking on what to make next
  • The main ideas i've had are:
  • Non-Major Tool Things i was
  • But just as with welding this is a Monday-Thursday "Dark and Early" - 5:00 PM Class so i will be quite busy
  • Will learn a lot though (even though i haven't documented all the welding + industrial hygiene stuff i learned on wiki yet...), and (assuming i pass everything...) get placed in a Union Apprentice!

What i did today

  • Pretty much documented + wrapped up all the tabs in one of the windows
  • Also trying to kind of look into / organize a lot of that hydrogen stuff
  • There wasn't too much on the OSHA side (i think, i may have chosen the LPG / CNG regulations for the assignment where we looked into them, i'll check + document on wiki later), but also the National Fire Protection Association probably has good information on that
    • They are similar to NIOSH / Studies etc in that they are typically more safe than what is legally required due to new data being faster than lobbiest halted regulation etc (or just novel feilds like the Hydrogen Economy ...)
  • I meant to update my User Page, and also lay out how to make this page fit more what the Daily Log of Tasks page actually outlines
    • I may split this page in two, that or perhaps this subsections page is fine?
    • Either way i also need to archive past years' entries

Future Plans

  • School first and foremost
  • Document what i'm learning (and what i've learned!, small backlog from welding, and major one from this summer's programs)
  • Document the tabs / get those under control
  • Learn FreeCAD
    • Especially now that i have a 3D Printer (and list of replacement parts i need to sketch up + print) it is time to learn
  • Print Jigs and maybe build a low cost machine or two to begin growing a Fab Lab

Formal Log Format

6/13/2022

  • Online classes will be the death of me lol
  • This one isn't even virtual it's just "Here buy this expensive book and throw an essay at me occasionally, or take a multiple choice quiz + answer cryptically simple questions
    • At least we have discussions though...via submitting mini-essays and forced replies
  • Homework is kind of an odd concept too, granted i'm some scary leftist who also has ADHD, but one doesn't take an assembly line home after their 9-to-5 and do work at home, so why should kids
    • Granted i get it has some utility, and things like math do require some "drill to kill" level teaching for memorization, but i still dislike the practice / it's effects on Work Life Balance
  • It's 12:40 am local time here, i could honestly get some work done, but responsible me is saying i gotta make my sleep schedule less dysfunctional lol
  • This week was on Colony Collapse Disorder so nothing too applicable unlike all that Non-Timber Forest Product stuff
  • I did catch up a bit on the discord yesterday
  • My laptop really doesn't like having discord and my obscene amount of tabs open at the same time
    • I need mooooooooooooooooooooooore ram
  • Also damn i still need to look into that email you sent me and give a proper response aaaaaa (and edit that video)
  • So i guess to summarize, i am not doing much OSE work right now, but i am still alive lol

6/5/2022

  • Just finished an assignment for my "Intro to Environmental Science" class that involved listing Goods and Services Provided by the environment, if they were needed for life, and what would happen without them
    • Burt a PILE of time on all of this yesterday and today
    • mess due to wondering what level of detail they wanted, what counted given that iirrc most of earth's biomass is livestock etc, and how many processes could continue without the ecosystem
      • This isn't to say "no need for protection; drill baby drill!" but rather Humans can survive a pile of things even with just a power source (Nuclear or Geothermal wouldn't even require the sun) and some infrastructure (re Feeding Everyone No Matter What: Managing Food Security After Global Catastrophe , and most of our products are independent of a lot of these things
        • Desalination + Plant Factories (or even feeding Methanotrophs natural gas / synthetic natural gas from other fossil fuels, or Power-to-Food technology if you are ok eating mush, mush derived "processed food", and mush fed livestock only) handle food and water.
      • Was trying to get to the bottom of it, but even *oxygen* isn't produced but moreso kept balanced, marine snow / peat bogs and the whole carbon cycle lead to net growth but it's very slow. So massive ecosystem loss may just leave us running off of the pile of oxygen left behind till we figure something out (bioreactors, or even some sort of electrolysis + CCS but with the resulting hydrogen instead of CO2 )
  • Was just a mess but that + the Decision Fatigue / Burnout / whatever the term for this was just lead to plans falling apart
  • I did end up choosing some Non-Timber Forest Products for a bunch of the goods though so dived into:
  • So i should get around to documenting all that eventually
  • But yeah just wanted to keep y'all in the loop + post interesting stuff i found i guess

6/4/2022

Goals for the Day

  • Back Up Phone Photos, Offload to Google Photos, but start transferring to that Wireless Hard Drive as the main method (In-Progress)
  • Make Sure IndyMill is documented, then move on to that other design that is for Open Source Full Size CNC Mill
  • Document Jax Makes + Upload Photos Taken There
    • Also potentially update the Google Maps Posting
  • Make a wiki page for Forms That Would Be Good to Have Completed and On File (Safety Stuff, Emergency Readiness Stuff, that above FDA food certification forms that beekeeping channel documented, Tool Inspection Dates, etc)
  • Download Kdenlive and use it for that bit i mentioned and Marcin responded to on a youtube comments bit
  • Time permitting look into Blender CAD Sketcher

Pre-Log Notes

  • Some uncertanty around "Category: CNC Multimachine" vs "Category: CNC" vs "Category: CNC Mill" vs "Category: CNC Machine" and which of those should exist/what should go in each etc
    • Dumping everything in CNC Multimachine for now i guess?
    • Also will create that as a category page, i think as of this edit, it just exists as something a pile of pages link to

5/10/2022

  • I replaced my Laptop Battery since it tiurns out the tabs weren't broken, the battery was pillow shaped and pushing them out
  • So that as well as the ending of welding school caused a bit of a delay
  • About to head into my first class of the Environmental Science Technical Certificate course i am now going into at FSCJ
  • Need to make a page on Prusa's documentation, and how it seems they are sort of Fake Open Source, or at least Poorly Documented / Partially Documented Open Source so that is odd
  • Dumped all my links on Freqency Response Flattening in the Discord's "Reader's Digest" Section
  • Will add more details on what i did/am doing later, need to head off to class

4/11/2022

  • Need to head off to sleep, so this is just a general summary to clean up later
  • Mainly just been dumping info from tabs, so sorry for the seemingly random edits again aaaaa
    • I have been using the "This is a Minor Edit" checkbox more recently so hopefully that tones down my spam
  • Also documented some Workshop Organization stuff, + Safety Stuff
  • Both of which lead into Makerspace planning which post catching up with tabs (got a PILE documenteed+closed today+yesterday, felt good) will be my main focus
  • Will clean this up+add estimated hours later

3/29/2022

Jotting Down Ideas

Log

  • Caught up on the recent changes
  • Added categories + misc small things to some of them
  • Commented on Commented on Page 26 of the House Wall Module Design Guide (essentially you have done all the hard work / planning!, i/we just need to plan the layour+ergonomics for the Work Cells / how many will be required for making a wall module, and as an optional bonus design a Passive Roller Conveyor (essentially a table covered in upside down skateboard wheels (potentially in between rails for stability) (can also be done with Ball Transfer Units if those can be acquired/made for cheap?) Active with G28 belts would be neat, but probably overly complex?
  • Some notes on Design Guide: Kitchen
    • If i remember correctly, European Refrigerators are smaller (largely due to city planning + a little bit of culture i guess), so a sort of Regionalization of the design guide may be needed? Ovens may have been smaller too, need to check
    • Also personal preference i guess those Dual Compartment Sinks are neat, especially if one side is a Gabage Disposal (so you have rough dish scraping/cleaning on the left, then cleaning/soaking of things that need that on the right. Also maximum countertop space is nice in my opinion too. (wait now that i'm thinking about it, is countertop Induced Demand a thing..?)
  • Didn't boot up MSH3D yet so haven't seen the latest models by Catarina yet
  • Also watched a new video by James Bruton on Open Dog V3 !
  • That's about it, 1 hour if even that of work

3/28/2022

Pre-Log Notes

Log

  • Going to need to move on to bed, already ~9 mins sub 8hours as of now, and have been pulling too many late nights yet i already do poorly enough in the morning!
  • Had today off from welding school due to teacher needing to deal with some personal/family issues (or something along those lines)
  • Did talk with a like minded friend about various OS / Tech things
  • Also discussed a bit about Open Source Licensing and the "what if someone steals my design", and i brought up the kind of Brand Loyalty in an Open Source Business Model Context challenge a la Prusa where even though there are cheaper clones you buy original to support the creator and have their better QC/QA
    • Also just cultural awareness of this threat and calling out any corporations that do this
    • Also Share Alike / Non-Commercial licenses
  • Today I
  • Also should document the misc work over the past few days on this log later as well inbetween this and the current last (3/19/2022) work log entry

3/19/2022

  • Been watching younger sibling a bunch recently for parents
  • That, as well as that sort of feeling of dread/overwhelming due to break ending soon (although the Panic Monkey / Frantic Last Minute Productivity is now kicking in!)
  • Tomorrow, sunday, is the last day of break so going back to weekends only again soon
  • I need to send emails out to those various classes as well as look into Electrician Apprenticeship more
  • Also if we are having summer X again and my health insurance can count that as "Full Time Student" work or something along those lines that may count too
  • Got a decent amount of work done, but it is still kind of trading water-ey
  • I almost have this window back to just what i will use for more Lifetrac Demo Media + Appropriate Colorants stuff
  • Also some Flamewar erupted while i was busy being productive and not watching discord today so that was neat
  • Kind of dealt with it, but not fully
  • It is 02:04 or so local time so my ability to stay awake, let alone deal with all that is quite low and decreasing
  • Will wake up and deal with any remains of that tomorrow
  • Essentially this one person "PP Catalonia" / "OSR.org" / etc (Still trying to clear up that they are the same person, and one person (not multiple users), but i think they are?) has some bad blood with the "main people" behind Precious Plastic, i think mostly due to a fee in their Bazaar or something?
    • For one reason or another i haven't really gotten a clear explanation of all that which makes resolving the issues even more difficult since i barely know what they are and what parties are involved!
    • I've taken screenshots, so even if they delete comments (or i may do so just to make the general chat not have...that pop up first thing, that or just fill it with discussions of other stuff too) i have all their points / answers to questions documented
  • brains blanking out so i'm going to log off now lol; i'll clean this up in the morning


3/16/2022

Pre-Log Notes

  • Alrighty
  • "Blocked Out" Daily to-do (All are in est / i didn't include some items i already did)
    • Catch up on YouTube Comments / Discord (Check)
    • Document missing 14/15 logs (Check)
    • 5:45-6:00 School Class Plotting / Sending Emails Out
    • 6:00 - ? Finish Video Backlog
    • ? - ? Make as many pages as posible documenting above topics

3/15/2022

  • Less progress than yesterday due to watching a younger sibling for the afternoon/nigh, but still got some work done
  • Mainly just dumped some links into the OSE Discord 's "Reader's Digest" section
  • Also documented some more designs/iterations on the concept of the Wire EDM and Die Sink EDM Machine
  • Also a link to a wikipedia page on Remote Sensing is now in the Open Source GIS page
  • Finally just usual discord/youtube networking/question answering type stuff

3/13/2022

Pre-Log Notes

  • Just watched an Engineering with Rosie livestream on Airborne Wind Energy
    • Mentioned a bunch of great papers/studies, as well as just a good way to categorize the designs, and Rosie's personal opinion on AWE
    • May be worth reaching out to the channel (Sadly their discord is Patreon only (with the sheer ammount of groups i follow if i were to do that for all of them... (need to calculate this sometime, a sort of taxes, but for supporting all the groups i follow?) )
    • I can update the Makani page a bit too maybe?

3/8/2022

Pre-Log Notes

  • Some low tier drama occuring in the discord
  • It is this same person that had an account called PP Catalonia then went to PlasticsHub / OSR etc?
  • Seems overall toxic but i guess their core issue had to deal with the percent profits the Precious Plastic Bazaar took from each purchase
  • I know their alternate names were banned over on Precious Plastic's Discord, and i think this one is too?
  • Oh also they were spreading covid-19 conspiracy theories on Precious Plastic's Discord right when it was starting and was hurting the most people so that was "fun"...
  • All in all i and/or the other mods need to deal with that I don't have the time / energy (physical or emotional lol) to deal with that now so am saving it for later i guess

Log

  • Just caught up on the recent edits
  • Added a few category links and other minor edits
  • Found These Media Folders and was going through them:
  • Haven't watched the videos, just skimmed and saved the videos as more tabs for later
  • Also kept anything Lifetrac open especially the videos
    • I am creating a playlist on YouTube of all videos showing it working for sort of quick "Yeah it exists and works" type sharing i guess
      • Needed to have this when i was sharing the project in Louis Rosman's Discord in the Agricultural R2R Subsection a while back, reactively making it now
  • Finally THERE ARE CATS AT FEF?!? valuable information...
  • Either way moving on to Mild Steel Pipe (~5 in or so it looks like?) in welding school, although i think i will work a bit more on TIG Test Plates and try some Aluminum Welding pre-diving into pipe
  • Also on the note of pipe Vacuum Brazing has had me intrigued anyways after reading up on it during a midnight deep dive into Skylon / Reaction Engines Ltd ...
  • Also Graphite Heat Exchangers

2/27/2022

Pre-Log Notes

  • Before i dive into anything haphazardly i want to plan things out and maybe even try and block times out?
  • Either way i just want to get some quantifiable work done i keep on feeling like i'm trading water or doing less useful edits/work!
  • Plan(?)  :
    • 1:35 (Now) - 2:00 EST: Plan Things Out + Catch Up On Old Edits / Discord Posts (Discord may need longer?) + check email
    • 2:00 - ? Add misc notes / small edits to the old edits i just reviewed + reply to questions etc on the discord / emails
    • ? - ? Catch up on YouTube Feed (seems to be some CNC Machine Progress, another video in the steam engine series, a video update on the LumenPnP (formerly IndexPnP ) a few other small misc things (famous last words)
    • ? - ? Start continuing the Applied Hydraulics video
    • ? - ? Watch the OSEB Meeting 19th February 2022 Record Note
    • ? - ? Get as many links off of phone as possible (then backup photos, delete them from phone, and reboot) (also attempt to use that old Wireless Hard Drive of mine rather than Google Photos )
    • If Time Remains After All of That Move on to OSEH work maybe?
    • Also condensing / documenting the obscene amount of desktop chrome tabs (maybe even just bookmarking them rather than making a full on wiki page, although that may make them disappear from my thoughts moreso than "save them for later"; may be good to just "get it done"
  • ALRIGHTY 1:43 now, speedrun timeeeeeeeeee
  • 2:44 Now, just finished catching up on edits and checked email, next on to Discord, then YouTube, but first quick stretch / snack break!
  • 2:52 Catching up on Discord now
  • Got a bit side tracked, SciHub Inc. had a livestream where they were making a Modular Rack Mounted Mini-Bioreactor using off the shelf parts, a hand drill, and Two Part Epoxy (made 4 with 30 minute epoxy, may optimize a bit but that may be the per-person limit, good for Swarm Builds ! )
  • Moving on in the schedule NOW then at 4:17
  • Fully caught up on discord messages now
  • YouTube Tabs open and Ready to Go, Going to have a conference/meeting with someone from SciHub's Discord about SCOBY Leather Substitute

Work Log

  • Well Damn
  • I only got to the catching up on YouTube Feed Phase of my plan
  • Although I Did Catch that aforementioned Bioreactor Build stream, and had a talk on Bacterial Nanocellulose / SCOBY Leather Substitute / Leather Substitutes (and Mink Oil Substitutes )
    • We also discussed the Environmental Impact of Beekeeping (Need to look into it further, gets complex, but at least in Gabe's opinion the out-competing native species is a major con; Insect Hotels are much better.
    • Also discussed the OSEH project a bit with gabe, he was quite critical of the Maker Movement / Reprap Movement, neat bits of Constructive Criticism, need to document later
  • I just saw (pun?) all sorts of neat footage in [Google Photos Link from one of Marcin's Recent Edits] that i should dive into sometime!
    • Especially seeing more footage of the Lifetrac out in the wild!
    • Looked like you were using the Sawmill a bit there too?
    • Altogether neat stuff
  • LumenPnP video was great, they seriously nail video documentation in my opinion
  • The steam engine is interesting, coming along somewhat well, although it isn't dual acting and doesn't seem to be too Optimized for Production , still neat nonetheless
  • Really neat video on Phased Arrays (good mechanical teaching demonstration with linear actuators and water (Would be great for a Kid's Science Museum kind of thing like Technopolis which i LOVED as a kid), they also made an ultrasonic based one which was modular and open source although pretty limited
  • Watched some stuff on Permanent Mold Metal Casting
  • There was some discussion of CEB Presses on the Precious Plastic Discord, i linked to some OSE Stuff
  • I also linked to the Indymill project in one discussion
  • Chucked a bunch of links in OSE Discord's "Reader's Digest" Section
  • Some OSHW designs on YouTube to document later
  • The topic for my OSHA-30 class this past saturday was Confined Spaces work mainly, so learned a bunch on that, need to document it
    • Next week is also the last saturday of that so i will have more time (and be officially trained not certified (important distinction supposedly) ) to do stuff like all this again
  • Also discussed Spira Inc and need to make that Appropriate Pigments page i mentioned in Catatina's Log's Discussion Tab
    • Essentially what colors can be used for ink/paint/cloth dye that follow Appropriate Materials etc
    • Gabe is calling up the person he knows at Spira Inc to see if they can tell us how they go about extracting the pigments granted good ol' intellectual property bs may keep that from happening idk
  • I guess i have a fourth chrome window now with about 9 videos i need to speedwatch / document later + this log, so One Step Forward, Two Steps Back as seems usual for me recently, but i got some stuff done i guess
  • Maybe ~8 Hours? Hard to tell, but i did that sort of constant updating in my "Pre-Log Notes" section today, and i think that may be a thing i keep on doing, good for keeping me on my To-Do's , tracking time, and "keeping you posted" ; i just hope it wasn't annoying!
  • Anywho back to a week of school!

2/21/2022

Pre-Log Notes

Log

  • Today I Mainly did
    • Usual minor wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
  • ALSO
    • Documented more / all of the relevant work by Seeed Studio
    • I am fully caught up on my YouTube Feeds
    • Made stuff on Wire Crimping
    • Documented the various Open Source PLCs
    • Smaller stuff like making the page on Layout Fluid and the Bed Leveling vs Bed Tramming Stuff
    • Looked into more Steam Engine stuff
      • Found a company making a modern steam engine in a similar format to a Steam Locomotive , Mackwell Locomotive Co.
      • Good YouTube Video Documentation, Seems they are trying to patent it and go closed source, may be able to contact them and convince them otherwise, although i have barely any time to do stuff like that now, and i feel i'm not the best at it? Can you send them an email or contact them somehow Marcin, if you have time? (probably in a similar situation to be honest i'd bet lol)
      • Some modern/novel designs, but these give me some serious Scam / Vaporware vibes
      • Blondihacks is making a 1/4 HP Steam Engine although it is at the limit of their machine tools so is quite "sketchy", also these model boilers don't seem to Optimized for Production so maybe not of much use?
      • The size of these engines vs the size of a Powercube seems a bit incompatible too? Maybe if a Axial Piston Pump kind of thing is used that may be more dense
      • Read on User: Jon 's log about the Pathways to Enable Open-Source Ecosystems‎‎ grant, and made a page on it (but realized one already existed, so seriously contact me if i stepped on some toes with my edits of that!) and it seems GREAT!
        • I don't know if we qualify though i guess, that bit on "it's not for product development, it's for infrastructure" but that is still do-able, and where they draw that line may be a bit more flexible than i think it is
        • I think i already posted it on a talk channel somewhere, but i think the OBI Business Model / My (or some variation of it; i'd love feedback + constructive criticism) OSEH Model (if kind of McDonaldized into a sort of "plug and play" kind of model) could work as infastructure maybe? Also that Open Source Discord Alternative / OSE Videogame (from the using it to sort of trick people KSP style into learning the real softwares and design principles, and maybe even making real usable house designs or even parts/machines!)
        • Either way i think that is a great goal to strive for
        • Also as shown by me making all these edits last minute a few hours before the week of school starts the modivational power of the Panic Monkey / Deadlines for ADHD me really helps, so having that date to keep up with may keep me on track more
          • IE i need to buckle down and focus on the OSEH / Fleming Island Makerspace planning i guess?
          • Do give me feedback / steer me in the right direction i guess?
  • Finally do we have a meeting schedule?
  • Maybe about 5 Hours?
  • Off to another week of Welding and OSHA 30 i guess,! I will check in a little bit throughout, but probably assume a communication + edit blackout until then.

2/12/2022

Pre-Log Notes

Log

  • On Saturdays now i have an OSHA 30 (i guess construction speciality, there is also "General Industry" and Marine IIRC (need an abbreviation to text + predictive text for desktop thing lol)
  • So essentially one less usable day (for relaxation and/or this)
  • I got about 1/2 through that Applied Hydraulics thing
  • I totally dissasembled + clened that Bathroom Exhaust Fan and it worked fine, although we had a spare motor that we had from buying *a whole new unit* to replace a shattered cover (would be a good reason to have a 3d printer!), so that is currently installed
    • I took pictures, no caliper use yet, but wouldn't be hard. It is a very straightforward unit
    • Also funny since they were going to throw it out Disposable Mindset and all that, not like it contains Rare Earth Metal Magnets some copper, steel, plastic, all in an inseparable blob that would most likely go straight to landfill lol
  • Got on a bit late today to be honest
    • Mainly just:
      • Checked on discord, although i still need to contact some people
      • Put the work Scihub Inc. is doing on Restor on-wiki
      • Added Categories to Stuff / Made Some Category Pages
  • Guessing 2-3 hours tops? Always hard to judge hours
  • Off to another week of welding and OSHA i guess,! will check in a little bit throughout, but probably assume a communication blackout until then

2/6/2022

  • Got the Modern Welding 12th Edition (Book) Recently for school
    • Further Radicalizing Me Against Textbook Publishing Companies lol, but it is well written/has good information
    • I don't know quite how i can share the knowledge i am learning from it, TOS and all, probably find other papers/pages etc with the same information + a pile of paraphrasing?
      • Not like i am intending to *steal* from it, but it does have interesting in depth information, especially on more obscure methods / processes
  • Also will probably donate it to the local library or something like that (if i remember correctly there may be a cheeky method with that as well...)
  • Currently double checking that i am caught up on the "Recent Changes" page
  • Updates on my various video feeds:
  • I also want to look for / work towards an Open Source Bathroom Exhaust Fan , one in my family's bathroom is dying again, and i think it is just the bearing, making a horrible grinding noise sometimes, i'm assuming it's just metal plates Slide Bearing is the name i think?, making one with more proper bearings would be nice
  • Getting late so i'm logging off for the day
    • even more tabs now but i did document the Wio Terminal sufficiently short of maybe adding categories
    • Pile of information on some new OS Robotic Arm Designs, the AR4 Robotic Arm by Chris Annin has damn good documentation, kits, and even software made for it, so that's probably the most exciting in my opinion, although Stuff Made Here (I haven't looked into this one much), and Jeremy Fielding (watched about half of the videos on it) also made designs
    • There is also a scale model of the KUKA KR350 Robotic Arm by Coy Beardmore , and they also have some other neat "Benchtop Scale Models of Robotic Cells", and may be worth reaching out to as well
    • Unsure on Hours, guessing about five by my edits on the recent wiki changes page?
    • Also before i log off User: Kenmakunga has a GoGetFunding page for their daughter's tuition Here so chip in if you are able and haven't already, we gotta look out for eachother.
    • Off to another week of tig welding, probably back on friday/saturday again, but will try and check the recent wiki changes + the discord at lunch etc!

1/23/2022

  • Feeling Better Nearing the end of that Infection (Did get a positive rapid test on Monday)
  • Got a good amount of work done today:
  • I also updated SweetHome3D , and removed a redundant, and 32 instead of 64 bit version. At least in viewing your neat looking work it seemed fine. Need to test designing floorplans, as that was where the error occurred last time
  • Also these past few days i have made updates largely related to Discord or various content in my feed / ideas
  • I developed some new editing practices i guess
      • Actually using the "This is a minor edit" feature for minor edits to hopefully at least slightly reduce the spam of my edits on days like this. I hope it doesn't mess with you accessing pages / keeping up with things on the Recent Wiki Changes page!
        • If so Do Tell Me please, i can definitely change that if need be
      • Labeling How Long Attached Videos Are
        • This way you can see if you have enough time/interest pre-clicking the link, saving time
    • I need to look into Desktop Based Autocorrect + Eye Tracking Based Mouse Assist (if mouse is moving it doesn't overwrite it, but when reaching for your mouse etc it gets you in the general area)
  • Overall i felt very productive today
  • Granted if me doing these not 100% aligned with the current work/goals edits + work is pissing people off Please tell me so i could address that!
  • Also Marcin what is the best way for me to contact you?
  • Tomorrow is my birthday so i may not get too much done due to various festivities, but we shall see i guess
  • I'm guessing ~6 Hours?

1/17/2022

  • I likely am infected with the Omnicron Variant of Covid-19 so that's...neat
  • Have all my vaccines and i guess a booster, and it is mild (akin to a mild cold) so far, so that's good
  • Probably going to be isolating this whole week, so missing out on a decent chunk of the Flux Core work at welding school
  • May be able to get some work done on wiki, as well as around the house i guess though.
  • Today I
    • Finished up documenting stuff on Light Monorail and made a page + documented Narrow Gauge Railways
      • Do need to make a page on that farm YouTube channel though. Did document most of their work luckily
    • Read up on Thrive Energy Systems after watching their latest video
    • Added categories to some pages
    • Caught up on recent edits
    • Caught up on discord discussion + YouTube feeds
    • Started Getting Into the Factor E Farm QGIS Map work
      • Updated some related pages
      • Pulled up the site in google maps
      • Tried to get information on what satellites watch the area so i can see how up to date the images are and maybe get some interesting non-optical remote sensing data?
      • Also tried to get property lines
    • Need to find + integrate FeF Site Layout information to that
    • Also start making a QGIS File
    • Also grabbed that How to Document a Wall Module page
      • This did seem like a more pressing issue to an extent?
    • Kind of waiting on Marcin / Others to steer me to what jobs need to get done i guess
    • May also watch some more of the old videoconferences / interviews
    • Maybe 1-3 Hours, again hard to track them

1/11/2022

1/10/2022

  • So today at welding School, teacher didn't show, so we are in the computer lab essentially as a holding pen / busy work
  • SO i'm going to do more wiki work i guess
  • I got my google chrome working on the school desktop, so have access to all bookmarks
  • I AM missing:
    • My Macro Keys
    • My huge pile of "Recently Closed Tabs"
      • So now i will have to dig through history to find each article if attempting that work today!
    • All the software:
  • I think the work i can be most productive is Wall Module Cheatsheet work, and the usual Discord management + networking
  • Thoughts i guess? I'll kind of get started, but i would love some feedback
  • Also made some redirects for Wikipedia's articles on EDM
  • I just discovered the OSE Site Design and GIS Workshop , so it seems some GIS work and whatnot was already done!

1/9/2021

1/8/2022/

  • Today's work was much more structured, and productive
  • But ironic given i am going back to school on Monday, but good nonetheless!
  • Documented just about everything there IS to document on Auger-Based 3D Printer Extruders
  • Dived into Supercritical Water Oxidation (Saw it in regards to space applications, seems really neat. The Convenience of Incineration with little to no Emissions and mineral like ash
    • Main "kicker" is the High Pressures and Temperatures needed, and potential salt precipitation fouling / corrosion issues
  • In the process of Onboarding (i guess, *fancy* term) some people from the discord User: Marcin if you see this, they should have sent an email your way
    • Was showing them some of the old meetings that were the weekly ones with 4 people or so to show how those kind of worked
  • In doing that i began watching some of the reccorded meetings on Marcin's Channel
  • Going to post reactions on that wiki page i made for that, make some YouTube comments, and maybe send an Email Marcin's way
  • Not done yet, just updating as i go

1/5/2022

12/31/2021

  • Nov 25 / Dec 15 - Now is what edits i am trying to find + review to check that i am "up to date" ; reached limit of Recent Changes at about Dec - 9
  • I'll clean this up later, but i went through the recent changes log and added some thoughts + basic edits.
  • I'm off to go do various new year festivities, so Happy New Year!

12/12/2021

  • Didn't get all that i wanted done, but did get a decent amount of stuff (albeit a bit chaotic)
  • Made a very (at least in my opinion) detailed page on Pegboards
    • This is kind of due to me plotting on how to make my family's garage more organized, but also kind of in preparation for trying to devise what all tool wise is on FeF and maybe in the process of trying to determine that see how / help with the organization side of things?
    • A Plastic Version would (at least in my Opinion) would make a great Precious Plastic / OSEH product etc
    • This is also true for the near infinite amount of Pegboard Accessories
  • Along those lines i was also getting into Inventory management software and related things
    • I made InvenTree , mentioned me looking into all this on the OSE and (i guess now due the the Due to the Cease and Desist it is "Totally Not- ) Index PnP Discords
    • The developer contacted me, and we talked a bit, so that was neat and may lead to further collaboration in the future?
  • Also did some thinking + discussing on how a Barcode Reader (or 2D Barcode !) + "smart button" (need to grab the name of those amazon ones / how they work?) would fit in this system
  • I also made a pile of redirects on Wikipedia, and a few on ose wiki today
  • Also was mowing the lawns recently + using a leafblower, so that had me pondering on:
    • Clover Lawns
    • Reduced Lawn Landscaping / something along those lines
    • Leaf Vacuums / Leaf Mulcher's etc
    • Universal Battery Pack and related things
      • We bought into Ryobi's battery system / have their tools, and supposedly they make a vacuum+mulcher combo unit, need to see the reviews on that
      • They would save time + battery energy (also reduce gas usage via a lawnmower as a leaf mulcher/bagger which we did); leafblower almost seemed futile at times lol
  • Also catalytic converters on lawn mowers + muffler enhancement
  • Also need to look into the state of Self Driving Lawnmowers / Electric Lawn Mowers (or Flex Fuel !)
  • Also made Adversary Based Design which i had been meaning to do for a while
    • Need to add that criticism of OSE article that i saw here or on the Discord a while back
  • On that note / a preview of next weekend's work:
  • Fossil Fuel Free OSE by 2023
  • (Log was being weirdly slow / lagging on text input for a bit there which was odd, guess it is due to my CPU temp jumping to 80 for some reason lol)
  • (Unsure on hours, but probably somewhere around 6?)
  • (Also moved onto MIG, not TIG, due mainly to a higher up who likes to screw with people/flex their power lol)
  • (Was doing overhead and somehow got something in my eye; this reminded me of + gave me more ideas for that safety stuff)
  • FINALLY The Summer X Section of the Discord has been kind of empty recently, any idea as to why that is?
    • Granted as evidenced by my weekday absence, i do get the busy / far from a PC or Smartphone aspect!
    • AN update or something would be nice though
    • Anywho logging off for the night / week!

11/29/2021

  • Or was it 28 due to the midnight swap?
  • Anywho quite literally burning the midnight oil; love how when my brain decides to get in a good state of Flow is *middle of the night*
  • Mostly just documented links/thoughts from my phone
  • Got through most of them, which unlike my laptop links went quite way back, and most were also welding related (ie i heard something in class and wrote it down / looked it up)
  • Also did some wikipedia side edits, odd how it seems perfect from the middle, but all it's niche "edges" are tattered and sometimes essentially empty
    • On this note need to look into Wikipedia's use of web crawlers / cros wiki comparisons, for instance there is "Petrowiki" and others (such as OSE Wiki!) that contain information that may be of use, we just need to sit down and "compare notes" that and/or make bots that essentially do that
    • Also "Open Repair Wiki" 's Discord has a neat bot run sub-channel that acts essentially as our Recent Wiki Changes page, but in-discord, which is neat
  • Also getting slightly paranoid as to if / how / where discord is backed up
  • Also did a bunch of cleaning recently and that had me thinking on "ease of cleaning" as another factor to rate stuff with
  • The ability to easily wipe something off, or especially if it is on the upper area of a well / on the ceeling to use an extension wand of a vacuum to vacuum dust it, rather than needing to grab a ladder, and potentially dissasemble something is also neat
  • Also the damn Bathroom Exhaust Fan is squaking like hell, i think it just uses a metal on metal Slip Bearing , those things are built damn cheap, and my parents tend to take the policy of "throw the entirety of it out and buy *an entire new thing* " good opertunity for an OS thing IMO
    • Also on this note ineed to use the images + dimentions i took of that gear in the broken Pencil Sharpener and either order one, or sketch up one and get it 3d printed
      • Also could do a ~~mild ammount of reverse engineering given i took it apart to the screw level essentially~~ (although Sustainability of Pencils / mechaniocal vs wood etc?
  • Some more people joined the Discord today / last night, so give them a warm welcome, and also they may need some more help Onboarding if i'm not there to di it; i'll *try* to check the discord on my phone during lunch break / after school or something too
  • ~~Ever just sit there and feel a mix of Sonder / existential dread about Superobject that is the sheer ammount of materials flowing around you and all the complex processes for making / using even the simplest things (with much of said processes destroying the earth/environment/people's right to a good life), and the entropy + futility all that brings? ME NEITHER~~
  • ALrighty enough rambling, logging off for the day

(also this week will be somewhat crazy, we are testing for SMAW (which my essentail tremor may kind of prevent me from passing, although that feels like a bit of a crutch, but also it is the only factor i can isoilate) so i will be the normal ammount of busy, then some + stress, so probaby won't get anything done until saturday probably?

11/24/2021

Pre-Final Log

  • Trying to focus on getting links off of phone
  • 10/17/2021 mentioned that central hydronic heat working fluid tank thing This Page seems to be along the lines of that, worth a look

11/12/2021

Work Stuff

  • Didn't get as much done as i wanted to
  • Mainly just treading water in tabs/STEAM YouTube creator content/discord discussion + projects
  • Made a couple pages, probably kind of nonsensical since i am tired and not working efficiently right now i guess
  • Wrote this comment on the Discord about wanting to catch up sometime on the progress on the FDM Filament Maker specifically (although all the work seems *amazing* really wish i was there! (always future years and whatnot i guess!) )
    • Essentially there seems to be a *pile* of designs emerging, but at least from what i have seen not much collaboration/awareness of eachother's work, and thus a bit of Redundancy Waste
    • I am *way* behind in the videos on User: Marcin's YouTube channel short of maybe a few timelapses, i have also been watching a few videos by some of the new people (also before i forget, sorry i haven't done the onboarding bit yet aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa)
      • So i'd like to also watch the relevant videos beforehand, the whole "read the fucking syllabus" bit, not ask questions mentioned in 5 of the last 10 meetings!
    • But at least from what i've seen with working with Precious Plastic, that and the shredder, as well as maybe an Open Source 1hp Electric Motor are in huge demand, and would be very effective in making the equipment more accessible
  • Still a PILE of links to add from my phone that keeps on growing
  • I need to get into some better way of managing all that, chrome bookmark folders may work, but not group viewable, i do have a *pile* of open YouTube playlists, but sometimes they oddly disappear / the library on YouTube is a pain to use since you have to hit "view more" and wait a few seconds a bunch of times to go from a to z etc
  • Computer is running slow as hell today, need to diagnose that
    • Long uptime maybe that
    • Probably near full drive, need to address that (granted i don't have money for a NAS yet, so it is all probably dumping it to the lovely google owned cloud, or flash drives, may be able to find an old "smart" 1tb hard drive and get that going again
    • Also could be RAM and/or "hybrid" HDD (honestly may just be a HDD, doesn't have the speed i'd say just marketing bs lol) not being able to handle the sheer power of my tabs AS WELL AS Bloatware
      • Moving to OSE Linux or some sort of basic daily driver linux (LTT has a video on trying to get a user friendly linux going, they seem to be doing a HUGE amount of PR for the OSHW / OSS community recently which is neat!
  • Also there was some sort of software by mit for lifelogging / personal info management IIRC, gotta dig that up and look into it, also some sort of time managment app which may help less time slipping away from me

Personal Update i Guess?

  • Welding school isn't going too great; hard to tell given there are so many factors, but i think my essential tremor *may* be holding my back which is a bit concerning
  • I think i have gotten my flat welds with 7018 rods to an acceptable level, but i don't have access to any sort of testing above looking at it / asking around until the final "bend tests"
  • Not certain how it will all work out, we also dive into full on TIG Welding next, so either that will go better due to the perfectionistic nature (iirc, lots of prep grinding and can be slow and meticulous due to not worrying about rod feeding, can even do a "cleaning pass" with just torch iirc?), or be worse due to being notoriously harder
  • Also may need TIG Gloves (and my current leather gloves are getting quite charred as well lol, hence the research into Welding Proof Materials and other consumables / buy to continue learning but maybe end up failing and thus sinking little cash on something that is near useless to me then
  • Granted MIG / Flux Core are supposedly quite easy, and less leverage + hand adjusting due to just holding the "gun" would probably be nice, and most "production over precision" jobs use those anyways i guess?
  • Granted it's not exactly right to compare myself directly to my peers (mindfulness/growth mindset/dbt and all that shit), but at the same time from a heartless hiring person, *in a Right to Work State * in what is essentially a Gig Economy job (to an extent, more stable if with a fab shop / company etc), i would say that i would hire the best people so thus the comparison is semi-accurate?
  • Granted again if they just need a human robot arm capable of running a mig gun all day i may be able to do that, or maybe i will learn more and get better skills?
  • All in all just not too great for the mental health i guess!, a great example of the "things i like, things i am good at, and things that make money" venn diagram meme
    • That and the Iron Triangle will be the death of me i swear
      • Currently having community recycling dumpsters...at the Library backing up...if only there was some sort of local recycling system to swing in and save the day...
      • That and stray cats reminding me i need to get that catch and release stuff going (and maybe GIS mapping+even tracking them?)
  • Just TLDR pile of ideas / projects / jobs that need to get done but not enough time / money to even get any of them even started, in the process missing kind of tipping points/keyholes
  • Granted enough melodrama on my part rambling in the middle of the night goodness lol

TLDR / Guide to later me cleaning up this day's / past few of my dev day's mess

  • Information Overload / Content Treadmill issues
  • Information Organization / Storage Issues
  • Time Management / Stress / Flow State Issues
  • Some basic work getting done, but heavily limited due to the top factors
  • To-Do
    • Clean up mess of logs + work (and move these to the damn proper To-Do's !!! )
  • Try and finally get some form of more rigid schedule/time management + mind mapping software/data organization scheme + clean out PC and all that and make things orderly + optimized
  • Maybe get linux to deal with Bloatware
  • Visit Jax Makes
  • Try and get makerspace going at some basic capacity
  • More macros / automation of things like categories and that other work i can get derailed on at times?

12/31/2021

  • Didn't get *as* much done as i wanted to, but a decent amount
  • Lots of discussion on the Discord as per usual as well
  • It's late though; 10:35 local time, so in theory if i fell asleep RIGHT NOW i'd get 6.5 hrs of sleep or so
  • Didn't get the pages on the various Open Source Smart Watches or the AGM G1 Pro down
  • Also need to back up more YouTube videos
  • And OpenDog v3.0 is aliiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiive (decently on time with Halloween lol)
  • Also Steven Hawes and others working on the IndexPnP project are getting very close to completion of not only the design, but also starting full on Mid-Scale Manufacturing and design of the whole Minifactory
  • Also have aa pile of phone links to back up
  • Need to look into how Google's Web Crawler works
  • Also was looking into YesWelder 's recent 5-in-1 Stick, Mig, Flux Core, TIG, and Plasma Cutter (supposedly may not have all tig modes, also need to see if you can swap the polarity, ie DCEP vs DCEN etc, and other "fine print" specs)
  • I think that is about it, logging off for the day, probably will be off until thursday/friday due to lack of time + exhaustion when i am free! Will try to read the discord more on my phone this week as well

12/30/2021

  • Baby sat a sibling so didn't work much today
  • Got some basic pages made:
  • Loving the concept of a OSHW PAPR welding helmet! (and probably cooling suit too)
  • Also looked into the Dyson Cinetic Cyclonic Seperation Technology and wonder how hard doing something similar for Air Scrubbers , Intake Air Filters , PAPRs and maybe even Flue Gas Scrubbing (To reach Baghouse levels of Particulate Matter reduction with little bag use (if any, may be wanted as a failsafe / guarantee)
  • All sorts of engine stuff to dump somewhere
  • Blender released a new Open Movie (I thought it was great, only complaint is Frame Rate, but that may be intentional?
  • Also the movie i watched with my younger sibling on netflix today was by a small group in germany, i want to know what software they used, it may have been Blender like "Next Gen", especially since the alternatives are Pixar's locked down thing i think and maybe Maya ? will be really interesting to see it's market share grow *especially* as the recent updates focus on the teamwork aspect of the software workflow (i dream of a day where FreeCAD has the development budget + developers + user base etc of Blender!)
  • About it i guess, will try and get some work done tomorrow pre having to go to bed early to get to school, missing the days of my almost nocturnal sleep schedule; i can do this early morning stuff fine, but it sure doesn't feel "natural" !

10/17/2021

  • Didn't get as much done as i wanted to, as per usual, BUT
  • Figured out how to save pages to the Wayback Machine
  • Added some categories and organizational stuff to some new pages + skimmed them
  • Began Discussion of Solid Waste Management and how a Precious Plastic esque (ie reprapable and OS) approach may help with that with one person trying to do this from the Precious Plastic Discord
  • Discussed with the 1-2 people working on Their Own Filament Maker projects on the Precious Plastic Discord, and tried to see where they were, if they were OS-ing their stuff etc
  • Discussed that Central Hot Working Fluid Tank idea of mine a bit
  • Discussed + Went over some IndexPnP work
  • Tried to dump some phone links
  • (Rather frantically now that i have 6:45 mins until morning alarm...) Made the beginnings of Environmental Impact of SMAW vs GMAW and Servant Leadership
  • That's about it i guess, probably will need to clean this rushed mess up later
  • Unsure on hour count, may reverse engineer that later, but was mostly 12:00-now or so (with breaks and whatnot which always makes these calculations a mess)

10/14/2021

Pre-Work Bit

  • Need to see how long i've been in it, but been at the welding program at FSCJ for a while now
  • Currently working on some SMAW ( Stick Welding ), mainly with 7018 Welding Rods (Tried 6010 Welding Rods a bit, but they were funky, smelled like lung damage, so i decided to master 7018 before that)
  • May make some pages on welding + non-destructive testing stuff i have learned
  • Need to dump links off of pile of phone tabs
  • All sorts of YouTube links to share
  • Been driving the ~45min each way drive and realizing how horrible the Car Dependant Model of USA Urban Planning and whatnot is
  • Also recycling of metal powder from grinding + powder/chippings/precipitated smoke from welding, and the Environmental Impact of SMAW vs GMAW (and reprap-ability)

8/18/2021

7/20/2021

  • Alrighty, felt *much* more productive today, logging off for the day, SHOULD be back in ~8-11 hours or so
  • I guess 6 Hours, Hard to tell
  • Did a pile of Safety Stuff (Been watching a bunch of USCSB stuff which shows all the ways to *NOT* do Bio-Petrochemistry (Granted 2/3 of the incidents, and nearly all recent ones were do to people rushing (often due to higher up's demands), and having a bad safety culture, or just flat out skipping maintenance
  • I do think fleshing all that out, and implementing various systems (+ just making sure / adding there are fire extinguishers/eye wash bottles/stations etc where there should be some)
  • Once i (someday...) or someone else gets into bio-petrochemistry stuff that is when this will really "kick in" granted one of the incidents was due to their plant scale reactor not shedding as much heat (and them skipping steps, but i digress), as their lab scale unit, leading to a runaway reaction.
  • But with modular design / smaller Scale (Analytics) production (ie makerspace, county, or state level, not global, demand wise) things may be safer from that
    • Was due to the square/cube law, which was another surprising oversight, granted easier after the fact i guess
  • Need to do a Hazard Analysis of Hydrogen Storage / Saturated Steam (and probably biogas / upgraded biogas to cng standards etc) just to help design in all that
  • Did some misc stuff today on Ash Handling , Composite Materials , and CEBs (mainly just adding links i recently saw
  • Tomorrow though
  • Probably going to fire up that GIS Suite and run some tutorials first thing
  • Then probably some cleanup from my past few days of work
  • Then, if any time is remaining, move on to watching marcin/ose video backlog (caught up otherwise on other channels)
  • Then, if ant time is remaining, move on to finishing up safety stuff / To-Do List Stuff

7/18/2021

  • Didn't get enough done, but by staying up longer that just ruins sleep schedule making it worse, so logging off for now
  • Read some papers/dug for info on that Heavy Metal Removal via Ozonation (and later Advanced Oxidation Process ), burt time didn't get too much done but that was a thing
  • Brains kind of blanking out, so will fix/update this later

7/17/2021

  • Off rhythm/getting back into it
  • Got all that backlog short of safety stuff pretty much taken care of
  • Should finish up safety stuff, then move on to GIS stuff / watching past meetings at ~2x speed (also try and make any of the ones i can!)
  • Need to also get back to answering questions on the PP discord, and send emails out to in-person stuff again\
  • Not certain on hours as that has all been odd recently, will try and get a good log of all that
  • (also tried out some VR stuff i got on steam sale, "VR Power Tools" wasn't even as good as the dev sprint Lathe Safety Simulator software/game, so that was unfortunate, but i'll try the Robotic Cell Simulator later (if i even can, may need engineer level understanding / example files etc!)
  • Project North Star announced on their discord a day or so ago they are having dev meetings
    • "Hi @everyone I'm excited to announce that we'll be holding #ProjectNorthStar meetings weekly at 10pm EST on Monday! These meetings will go over some of the current software initiatives as well as hardware and campaign updates from @CombineReality We hope to see you all there and that these events will help guide this project's momentum forward! If you have any suggestions for topics or items you'd like to discuss please feel free to share them.

We're currently planning on discussing the following:

1) Updates to the SteamVR Driver system 2) Iniatives for getting prebuilt headsets out to select developers 3) Continued development on the ground truth optical calibration models 4) Systems to improve the onboarding process with a northstar HMD and standardize calibration file naming + coordinate systems.

We understand that this time won't work for everyone, and we will likely time shift or add additional events to accommodate other time zones better in the future!"

  • That's about it i guess

7/14/2021

Pre-End of Day Stuff

  • Currently have ~72 tabs up
  • Mix of:
  • Need to document + comment + share
    • New content by Iron3D
    • Channel developing a DIY / OS ultrasonic inkjet
    • Content on some sort of OTS Filament Maker circulating on major channels recently (compare to OSE design / determine if/when we could send a model to not get left in the dust?
  • Need to get all that where it needs to be so i can move on
  • Also need to watch all that video backlog from Marcin's channel i have, can watch at 2x speed (although may need to slow down/pause for detail in some bits
    • Calculate minimum time this can be done in
  • Figure out why discord is not showing alerts as to new comments in other groups yet is still sending that noise / etc
  • Load up freecad and try new workbenches / try and get that going
  • Heading out for food now i guess, so will be continued

7/8/2021

  • I didn't get much done today, maybe one or two hours, but i think that tabs / project creep/scope creep is controlled again.
  • I will probably make some pages on safety systems, swales/keyline undersurfacing, then try and catch up on marcin's videos
  • THEN after that i can move on
  • I did also clean up the OSE Discord given many people are joining
  • Also i beleive the audi issue may be fixable via using push to talk (in settings) instead of voice detection (which it uses if i remember correctly)
  • I should tinker around with that, as well as make some Discord Tutorials / Instructionals?
  • Am back now, will try and get this done

7/7/20201

  • Caught up on video backlog
  • I commented on this video by the YouTube Channel "CNC Kitchen" under their top comment asking if they considered building/testing a lyman extruder, so feel free to upvote that if you want
  • NightHawkInLight posted an interesting video on DIY electrolysers, had me thinking on them more, and finally made a page on it
    • Electrode Material seems to be a mess given most will essentially "electroplate" the anode, and can create some "nasties" such as hexavalent chromium
      • Carbon Foam or Graphite may work, but less conductive
      • Also swapping the polarity may reverse some/all of the reactions?
      • Also recovering any electrode dust for materials recovery needs to be accounted for
    • Making some sort of PID + SIS system for it (auto-water level fill, temp control via Thermal Throttling and/or a Radiator and/or Fan, gas sensing, and Inerting Systems would be neat
      • Also may want to make a similar "dome collector" but with PVC Pipe instead of a 1L bottle ?
  • That square box format does seem like it would be great for modularity
  • The combined "sock style" ones are interesting, but may be too dangerous?
  • Also need to look into/make pages for those "Plastic Bins" and see if there are standard sizes/formats, if not make some intra-OSE standard for that so they can be made in PP molds, and used for this, or standardized storage racks in a makerspace etc
  • Also wanted to make a list of needed compression/injection/vacuum molded components, similar to List of Needed Petrochemicals
  • That's about it, maybe 3 hours, not too much "relevant" work i guess?

7/6/2021

  • It's getting *very* late so i'm logging off
  • Got tabs on BOTH my phone and chrome browser somewhat back to manageable levels
  • YouTube Backlog is growing
  • Event Backlog is growing
  • Gave some more people admin access on the discord (the discussion/planning on a FLOSS alternative has really taken off so that's neat
  • Was flying the quadcopter with my younger sibling (kind of a daily thing now), getting better at it, did a *long* range test, and attempted some FPV flying, fps is low and reception can be odd, so it was a bit spooky/risky
  • Posted some stuff to the discord to organize tomorrow
  • I don't know if the paper is up, but someone made designs for a truss bridge and aircraft hangar like dome with that POKE method, also the pop up book table seemed neat.
  • Also sorry for lowkey spamming the recent changes section with all my mostly off topic edits, i know it can make finding recent stuff odd if it goes past the various numbers, ESPECIALLY THE 500
    • Anyone know ways around this?
  • Got the robotic cell vr simulator, and a "power tools simulator" on vr so more testing of existing stuff for the OSE Game concept
  • Posted the materials from that ave video (get the link tomorrow), and posted the switch on the discord, had me thinking about the Open Source Power Tools
    • The 3D Printed vs Injection molded Part issue may be rough? glass fiber reinforced pellets (and *maybe* continuous filament) seem doable, but the layer seperation may be hard to combat, although Salt Annealing could be done maybe (surface finish though....)
  • Rambling and tired lol, i'll clean this up tomorrow, as well as try and get a good hour estimate

7/4/2021

  • Family taking vacation to Relatives in Ohio (Ashtabula area)
  • 2 Day Road Trip up/down, have 4th of July Festivities happening this afternoon, and should be quite busy visiting people etc (HaRd WorK (hope i'm not coming across that way) )
  • I think i should have some time this morning/early afternoon (depending on setting up chairs etc)
  • Also got my laptop all set up, and whatnot today, so can easily log on at the end of the day and do quick checks
  • My grandpa on my mom's side was an agricultural extension agent for OSU, and my grandpa on my dad's side has a gigantic garden, and some houses that people rent out short term (many of which are in construction half the time, keeps his mind busy) so may have some neat stuff to share from there)
  • ANYWHO
  • I added an "ongoing events" category, and "Apprenticeship 2021" channel to the Discord
  • Caught up on various chat backlog, need to catch up on all the neat videos/content coming from the event (and maybe pin some in the discord)
  • Also check for / pin google docs
  • (Last afternoon/night was using that quadcopter i had a bit (just with the controller+phone mount) and kind of figured out the basics + signal range)
  • Getting late so logging off now
  • Finished up some small tasks, and closed some tabs by converting them to pages
  • Keep on getting more ideas/tabs, such a sissafisian task aaaaaaa
  • Also with all these defunct groups, it may be worth it to reach out and see if they would open source methods etc
    • There is a 3d printer using paper cutting + lamination (Macor i think) that is dead and doesn't seem to have some huge market, but would be neat to have
    • Also may want to make a page/term for all these biofuel companies from the 2000s-2010s that died out
  • Had some great conversations on the discord, and started watching some of the apprenticeship videos
  • Keep up the good work to all the people out there!
  • Guessing 3 hours or so?

6/22/2021

  • Bit of a large delay due to just small edits/stuff
  • Last two days were due to various father's day festivities then donating blood followed by me deciding to take a l o n g n a p
  • Caught up on the discord and misc stuff today
  • More people joined today, and we had a great conversation on various things, i love how development seems to be "taking off" ( i still need to say hi / give various tips to that huge swarm of people who joined (if reading this, sorry! i'll try and get to ya!) )
  • I did send emails out to Safe Animal Shelter and that local Habitat for Humanity branch asking about doing in person stuff now that i am vaccinated (and should be able to drive soon as well
    • Habitat for humanity replied and said they need volunteers at the "Re-store" and with a build in greencove, and to call them, so i'll try and get that done tomorrow (surprisingly others do not work well at 9:00 / 12:00 at night lol...) (probably ~5:00 pm est or so tomorrow)
  • Need to *focus* and get that Fleming Island Makerspace work going more
  • I'll get there eventually lol
  • (not too ose related, but i also messed around with that " Short Circuit VR " simulator/game, still feels kind of clunky
    • Also i don't know if they removed the feature or if i just can't find it, but i can no longer scale things, so seeing what connects to what on the breadboard is hard due to resolution of my HMD + how i can't hold things close to my face due to the HMD and my controllers "bumping"
  • Also that video mentioned the founder of pr, and that reminded me on that bit i want to do on that guy, and the founder of advertising or whatever (made women smoking seem rebellious/#girlboss so they opened up that entire market just by kind of manipulating people, that and the "hack gap" (saw some goofy onion skit "kid raises money with lemonade stand for attack ad" and they mentioned the whole "you can make anything true if you repeat it enough) )
    • TLDR for that mess above, not saying the OS movement needs a propaganda arm, but we can learn some i guess
  • ANYWHO i'm logging off for the day; guessing ~4 hours?

5/11/2021

  • Cleared (and documented) all the links in my chrome backlog (except for some more detail on them, and much more stuff on InductVR , and stuff on a "cargo cart monorail" (essentially rebar track + car for cargo runs akin to a wheelbarrow)
  • Added some more items to my to-do list
  • Did some usual organization stuff
  • Discussed some stuff on the discord
  • The to-do list had some typos i think, i should fix those later (easy now with me figuring out the spellcheck lol)
  • Getting a foster kitten tomorrow afternoon which may be *distracting*
  • Altogether felt decently productive
  • Guessing around 5 hours ( Yep hour logger is still broken ) (should probably do some more intensive troubleshooting myself and/or ask around on the discord tomorrow)

5/9/2021

  • Finally documented those vr training softwares
  • Pile more info on the InductVR one that i will need to dig into later
    • Also some githubs, so i need to look into those and maybe see if they would be interested in c o l l a b o r a t i o n maybe?
  • Documented AgStack after someone on the discord mentioned it, seems really exciting
    • I need to share this on the right to repair discord as well as they would probably be interested as well
  • I made some stuff on Rewilding the other day, the way i wrote it is a bit sloppy definition wise due to the overlap with just non-wild urban Greenspace and also similar efforts minus the reintroducing apex predators / leaving it to be without human use aspects
    • I want to find/make some sort of zoning name for wildlands with (cleared) camp trails + camping sports / small integrated ultra-rural Project Kamp type dwellings? along this kind of train of thought
  • Saw a great series on the netherlands' urban planning / traffic engineering which i may want to dump somewhere
  • Also some hydrogen infrastructure stuff
  • Need to make something on Self Discharge Rate (not only of batteries but of other systems)
  • Need find/make a page on tolerances and fits (also maybe a "what OSE machines to use for each "level" one)
  • Saw a series on Swales (less in the drainage ditch context, moreso artificial river/floodplain (need a better word) type Edible Forest Garden like things on each of the lands contours that also help replenish aquifers (due to trapped water being able to percelate more), and increase transpiration
  • Was trying to look into the types of Electrolysis of Water the other day, not too much low-level information on methods other than Alkaline Water Electrolysis , and some PEM Electrolysis
  • Should probably grab some papers and see if there are "experimental scale"
  • I'm going to try volunteering at the animal shelter for a few days a week again (although pre-pandemic it was almost full time ish?)
    • Thinking monday tuesday, due to that working well being able to carpool there wise, and also that being after the weekend rush of volunteers, thus they probably need extra help on those days
      • Also just need to kind of ask around and see how things have been, what/when help is needed etc
      • May also be fostering a kitten soon!
  • Because of that a neat "hands on" project could be a basic Electrostatic Precipitator , even just for large dust particles?
  • A HEPA filter could work, but for something just to reduce larger stuff (animal fur/dust etc), without much "consumables" may be nice
  • Would think some sort of mesh / grate / dangling wires in (probably 2 but maybe more?) layers with the electronics to charge them, and then a box around everything, and maybe a fan, and even a "knocker" (probably just manual clean)
  • Rambling a bit, but i haven't done too much work on-wiki lately, and did a decent amount today so i merged it all into this post
  • That's about it guessing 4 hours? ( Hour Logger is Still Broken )

4/29/2021

  • Slept terribly so logging off early
  • Found more open source cameras due to them being brought up in a discussion on the discord
  • Then also found some neat Photogrammetry rigs (some of which were DIY )
  • Also lead me to the Beetle Cam project which seem EASILY open-sourceable (along with the "camera trap" )
  • Essentially found more work rather than getting stuff done but eh it's something
  • Also discussed Rainwater Harvesting in the Project Kamp Discord
  • Finally updated my Personal To-Do List
  • That's about it guessing 4 hours? ( Hour Logger is Still Broken )

4/28/2021

  • Got most of what i wanted to done, along with some stuff that popped up
    • Finally got around to starting the Anodization page (this has been on backburner in forever, saw it being done in that high quality manner in the ULA tour by "everyday astronaut" forever ago)
    • Got through nearly all the tabs in the backlog (all that Hydrocracking stuff etc
      • Also was discussing Airborne Wind Turbines and found out that Makani is now dead...but also open source? Sad because it was incredibly promising (they did that huge offshore test in that video, one would think getting that far means you are "set" ?
      • Only idea i can think of is Airspace Issues (if power lines are bad enough for helos etc then a flailing thin tether attached to a heavy airplane would be...bad
  • Also did a quick peek into what the Well Drilling Rig was like, but honestly it may be somewhat irrelevant due to Rainwater Harvesting ? (also the usage of Retention Ponds as shown in some Seed Eco Home Diagram)
  • Made a page on the ESP32 granted IOT Security Vulnerabilities kind of turn me off from the concept, but at the same time it is an amazing little microcontroller and is everywhere in the maker/hacking scene now (for good reason!) so having an info/sourcing page for it on-wiki seemed like a good idea
    • A version with only those odd industrial/smart home standards would probably be my go to due to it being too odd to hack for most and easier to set up without www connection?
  • Also contacted that person from yesterday and sent the email adress they used to User: Marcin in a thread i started yesterday on their Filament Maker enquiry
  • Anyways that's about it, i need to read that bioethics paper on biofuels tomorrow + do the link necromancy for the few versions and fix them on the wikipedia page
  • After that if time remains probably Centralize+Organize my To-Do Lists
  • Guessing around 6 hours? (Again time is imprecise, also Hour Logger is Still Broken )

4/27/2021

  • Someone mentioned some "WOW plastic waste solved via new paper..., type thing, so i looked into that seemed to be like Hydrocracking molten plastic goop? Either way that's what that stuff was about
  • I saw This 2012 video and started tracing the various "breadcrumb trails" it mentioned (collaborators, devices etc)
  • Found an Open Source (-ish need more details, they said non-commercial and it was informal talk in the video not on paper etc) Spectrometer so that was very neat, and i posted it in the SciHub discord so they will probably be all over that
  • Another video was on a compliant "Spherical Flexure Joint" that they made for fun i guess, but later added a magnet and sensor so it could act as a (idk if 2 or 3 dof) joystick, so that is a neat and surprisingly simple addition to the Open Source HID thing
  • This Video "SPM - 3D Printed Spherical Parallel Manipulator Assembly" is an AMAZING standard for how to do an instructional video, short of maybe the music (hard to solve problem) also maybe YouTube closed captions? Also an amazing build in of itself, should make a good Open Source 3 Axis Camera Gimbal
  • This Self Reversing Screw] is neat, and someone said it could perhaps be used for filament winders?
  • Neat Hydroponics Thin Film Grow Box (i was thinking on making a modular version that can be scaled up/down by attaching more blocks)
  • This person actually made and is developing that monorail 3d printer
  • Probably less efficient than other methods in terms of benefit to people / usd spent, but this has me thinking of a human powered water heater / pasteurizer (that or direct hydro etc) I Should Run the numbers sometime (could also be a good kid's science museum exhibit)
  • This Channel Has some amazing work
    • The person who made the hydroponic grow box made This cable camera which directed me to this one which could be an amazing addition to the shelter/cat cafe (my only concern would be cats attacking the cables, but definitely nicer than dome PTZ cameras, or a quadcopter/robot moving around
    • they made This Sewing Machine Hack which will be useful for the open source embroidery thing
    • Also seem to be great at Reverse Engineering stuff as shown in videos like these legally dubious i guess but the alibaba trick sure is effective lol
  • Started some GIS work on the project kamp discord section, one person was a legit expert, so talked with them a bit today, brought up my prior looking up components for that Basestation GPS stuff and mentioned making some sort of open source hardware for surveying and all that would be useful
    • Should talk about those laser mast things as well tomorrow
  • I was discussing plastic End of Product Life Cycle Management via RDF and all that, as well as was discussing how one could use 3D Aquaculture (specifically filter feeding shellfish etc) as a sort of Biofilter for Microplastics as those ocean booms (as well as Beach Cleanups ) solve the bigger stuff and that could close the gap on that
    • User: Seaweed had a good bit on how the shell formation will affect (local) ocean PH, so that needs to be taken into account in the LCA (i did find one earlier, but that may have just been the Kelp Farming , need to look that over again)
      • Also discussed the whole "returning the ash" bit (i have been thinking this over for a while still need to make a page on it) essentially Biomass -> (removed hydrocarbons and/or CO2 and/or water etc) -> All remaining minerals in ash, so if you return the ash to the environment (appropriately diluted) you aren't depleting anything, and in the case of the shellfish that would negate the ph issue if done right, and with biomass farming, that prevents topsoil depletion
  • Getting late and i'm rambling a bit but mostly lots of discussions with people today and me doing some paper finding along the lines of said discussions
  • Also User: Marcin do look for that email by Another person looking to make the Filament Maker , this person is doing for a uni project i think as well
  • Guessing around 5 hours? (Again time is imprecise, also Hour Logger is Still Broken )

4/26/2021

  • My mind is still all over PHEVs and Flex Fuel Vehicles so i was writing more of that down
  • I was looking for Off the Shelf Flex Fuel (Plug in) hybrids, and it seems like Flex Fuel has really fizzled out in the USA market, so i was looking into how hard it would be to modify a standard gasoline engine to one
    • Also the subsidies for Flex Fuel are gone i think (may need to look in to if the current administration may reinstate/extend/raise them etc) (along with the solar panels and EVs etc) )
    • Also most of the CNG conversions i have seen are diesel, but most hybrids are gasoline engines, so i will need to look into that
    • A CNG + Flex Fuel Plug-In Hybrid (Mini)-Van Would be AMAZING (only 1 hybrid mini-van by Crystler) (lots of fleet vehicle aftermarket mods, and 1 plug in hybrid ford van, but that is EU only i think)
  • All caught up on Discord / Youtube Backlog
  • Quick Summary of Neat Stuff:
    • NASA Helicopter and all the news about that + Scott Manley being an advisor for the "Stowaway" space movie
    • James Bruton is finishing up an Odrive based sort of self contained "actuator" and may be making an Open Dog 2 with it soon which is exciting
    • Found various EDM machines, some recent updates on all that
    • Stephen Hawes is making huge progress with their Open PNP build
    • I made a Blender Donut for Blender Guru 's NFT fundraiser thing, so that's neat
      • I also got some good articles on their development plans for the future and it's going to be VERY exciting
    • I tested some VR Training software things on steam (need to make pages on them later), one was for a miter saw, and the other for an industrial lathe
      • Also there was a breadboard simulator which seemed promising
      • All of these were free on Steam
    • Project Kamp is kind of progressing and we SEROUSLY need to collaborate on something (they were talking about maybe fundraising for some sort of heavy equipment thing so... l i f e t r a c ) (or even just "here are some tips" etc)
      • They made another sub-project "fixing fashion" so lots of textiles stuff to dive into (i haven't seen the video yet only the discord channel)
  • That's about it, logging of a bit early, but should be back on in 6-12 hrs

4/11/2021

  • Got pretty much everything i wanted to done short of Personal To-Do List Centralization/Organization
  • Also the GIS / Map work for Project Kamp
  • Was kind of plotting a on-site fuel farm / fuel production kind of shed/building/ HMCU , also a still + molecular sieve in one unit with automatic swapping of the sieve tube from essentially a liquid filter to a Vacuum Furnace for regeneration in place (coiled nichrome wire and a vacuum source, and how complex does that get with the molecular sieve in particular)
  • guessing ~6 hrs, logger is still broken

4/10/2021

  • You think you would run out of tangents/things to discover but i at least have not, for better or for worse
  • I need to get a map going (and see what is best for collaboration, i found some page on sharing those google earth pro map files) for Project Kamp and need to document the ongoing work in the discord on the modular Weather Station (which they also plan to have multiple of for different zones on the site)
  • I Was looking into (cellulosic) ethanol, need to document that more (somewhat started)
      • Mainly:
  • All the pile of misc bits in my tabs currently
  • Try and sync knowledge across various platforms / places
    • Take all the bits like this in my log and move them to my To-Do List
    • Discuss automation of discord/scihub library/ose wiki/selected github information merging/sorting further with "Artem" (i forget if they/you (grammar is braking; send help) are on here yet, or just the discord)
      • Also need to track down Autohotkey experts or something for automation of basic things in (and out of) wiki (check if they have a reddit, if so ask if people would be down for a discord)
        • Wikipedia somehow does auto-timestamp / user signature so it is doable somehow)
    • Make more rigid/definitive timelines and goals
  • Rambling and tired (whodathunk it's 2:30 local time, and i donated blood today...)
  • Should be online in 6-12 or so hours and hopefully do the above ( AT LEAST the cleaning up of "to-do's" )

4/1/2021

  • Today I Mainly did
    • Usual minor wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
  • ALSO
    • Did another "Sorting Party" with scihub today
    • Also Finished out my LinkedIn for now at least
    • Followed all the companies that i made pages on this wiki for (and updated some of them along the way)
    • Discussed the Open Source Weather Station as Project Kamp is making one as one of their first projects
    • Also made some wikipedia pages
    • I watched This Movie, "Sala samobójców. Hejter" which roughly translates to "the hater"
      • It is almost too real especially post the coup attempt/insurrection/riot at DC in the USA
      • Also reminds me of the concept i have been thinking over "Command of the sea" but applied to "cyberspace/media/discourse/some word for this", it may be a bit political for here, but it is VERY relevant to PR / Marketing and whatnot
      • This movie (along with that other one on the drug company) show the dark side of it, but also the power; one person with a keyboard caused all the events in the movie
      • Also need to make a page on Edward Bernays
  • I need to make a page on Economically Possible vs Physically Possible
  • User: Seaweed had some neat stuff on Bioreactors, and is working on a sort of Azollaponics (with some suplimental non- pbrs ) for Vegan Aquaponics type stuff. Hydroponics without the
  • Anyhow that's about it, guessing 6 hrs?

3/28/2021

  • I just made a wikipedia page, i've been holding off on it, but i encounter so many stubs/underdeveloped pages / lack of obscure abbreviation redirects i might as well help out
  • Given they have more rigid formatting standards and all that i will probably try and dedicate a day/good amount of time to learning all that pre-doing much further work than what i just did, it is just good to have the capability now

3/26/2021

  • Today I Mainly did
    • Usual minor wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
  • ALSO
    • Sorted most of the tab backlog short of the stuff on
      • Metal Foam Production Methods
      • Some more materials mentioned in that scihub project's presentation (that i looked into a bit) (besides Invar )
    • I still need to see exactly how relevant Flue Gas Desulfurization and Mercury Control are to Biomass . Because that coal plant tour brought up some interesting tech, mainly Dry Sorbent Injection (DSI) and Activated Carbon Injection (ACI) where they added fine powder to the flue gas in an entrained flow before the particulate removal (Granted Wet Scrubbers are probably better for Sulfur Dioxide due to making sulfuric acid which is more useful and easier processed than some powder (i think, needs verification)
      • If i remember correctly mercury/vanadium etc was essentially nonexistent?
      • I did find some info saying otherwise but it gets messy with coal-cofiring, unsorted RDF ( NiCad Batteries etc), demolition debris ( Pressure Treated Wood etc)
      • Also most plants are retrofitted old coal plants, and not some Best Available Technology IGCS type thing and thus have the disadvantages of those designs
      • I did find a great paper on Biomass ash content, composition/usage, and policy recommendations
      • Distributed Generation also does much of the Dilute and Dispose for you given that it is a bucket of ash, not a silo full
      • Also assuming it isn't contaminated due to RDF/Demolition waste heavy metals it is essentially returning the non-(hydro)carbon elements to the soil the biomass was extracted from (although it is recommended to be diluted so as to not cause alkaline soil bursts)
    • Read up more on Screen Printing and looked slightly into Direct to Garment printing
      • Also found some good information on fabrics/fibers
    • It's probably not too useful but i saw two diy/os designs for a amateur quality Seismometer then got lost in the rabbit hole of active seismic sources and all that stuff (mostly used for oil reservoir location etc, but still very interesting) (also the air guns for marine non-seafloor sources are essentially marine mammal hearing removal devicess...)
    • Someone asked again in the Precious Plastic discord about looking for Filament Maker designs, so i posted the link to the Lyman Filament Maker in the chat
  • That's about it, not too productive, but better than nothing
  • Due to the amount of rabbit whole exploring and all that i'll just guess 3 hours? (logger is still broken)

3/25/2021

  • Not too much recently, or it has been spread too thin to be relevant enough for a full detailed post?
  • Project Kamp has been releasing some videos, so i was mentioning the Biodigester (since others were discussing anaerobic digesters), i may mention Lifetrac but i want to have a nice quick thing to show off first, so today i was cleaning up that Lifetrac Demo Footage bit
    • I saw some camcorders in some of User:Marcin 's videos, was this then uploaded and/or held on to by another person? I may need to dig around for that
    • And the videos on "Lifetrac 6" are the most recent HARDWARE (the Lifetrac Genealogy page uses a different number system if i remember correctly from earlier today
  • Also the usual mentions of Filament Makers and Pyrolysis Oil in Precious Plastic's discord
  • I also saw some stuff on Screen Printing and some Open Source hardware for that
  • Also looked into Mimeographs and some other interesting printing methods after hearing about one in some period drama/political thriller (may be a better solution to make the "stencil" with the dragknife etc of a D3D gantry, rather than have to use an inkjet toolhead attachment, or a dot matrix print method?
  • Watched a tour of a coal plant, and reverse engineered which one it was (didn't say in the video, but a sign in the background (water cooler bottle company) and some landmarks (only 1 smokestack)
    • Learned the term "Economizer Ash" which seems similar to bottom ash / slag?
    • Also just the ammount of c o a l c o m b u s t i o n b y p r o d u c t s lol "seems a bit dusty today" (ash all over the place inside), still neat to see the internals though
  • Saw some work on a diy Seismometer which was neat and dived into those a bit
  • I made that Solvis page, but did not make the os project page for something similar (but i did think so and spent some time hunting it down
    • In the process i found some related Orphan Pages / Incomplete Pages related to the topic, so those are in my backlog of tabs to finish out, or at least mark, before closing
  • Also figured out how to get spellcheck working in the wiki editor (easy fix, just enabled it in settings, but i feel dumb for not doing it sooner (also i have a PILE of typos i made myself that need fixing now, which would also clog up the "recent changes" page making other's looking for their work harder due to the 500 limit etc
  • Need to review these last 5 or so entries by me for all the "need to..." tasks, as well as this backlog of tabs i now have again

3/19/2021

  • Today I Mainly did
    • Usual minor wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
  • ALSO
    • Prep-Work (Photos->Album->Email to PC->Basic Review) for the data analysis of the [[Charcoal Washing Expirement
    • Wrote down the basics of my thoughts on the future of the "superstore" (need to make makerspace parts vending machine, etc)
    • Wrote down some stuff on Theory of Value and a model for Transparent Pricing
    • Added some stuff on how the harvard vaccine was going to be open sourced, but wasn't and is now/was being undereproduced for a while (not some anti-vax bs, it is a great vacciene and will work fine, but patent nonsense (especially given most research was done on government grants, and they will be bought by the government...) is slowing down research and distribution) This may make more people realise issues like this which may be neat
    • Discussed the Open Source Ebroidery Machine on the Voron discord
    • I talked with someone about my odrive plots, since they were considering making actuators for a robot arm James Bruton is doing something similar for the next generation of opendog ? Essentially control board + can bus out/power in ports, and bldc all in an enclosed "actuator"
      • Make a page on that tomorrow
    • Finish out Afforestation
    • Add that video on tesla stock overevaluation
    • That's about it guessing 4 hours?

3/18/2021

  • Today I Mainly did
    • Usual minor wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
  • ALSO
    • FINALLY cleared all the links off my phone to the PC (my phone is running way better...wonder why)
    • Quite a bit of helping out on other's pages i guess
    • I was discussin my plots for ODrive development with a robotics youtuber today
    • Tried looking into small scale Hot Dip Galvanization , nothing on that, tons on Electrolytic Galvanization (although that is less "thick" of a zinc layer right?)
  • Tomorrow i need to
    • Theories of Value Labor Cost and Open Pricing Model stuff
    • Need to make some pages for that pile of YT videos i watched a few days ago
    • More networking
    • Make all my linkedin and whatnot not look like garbage
    • Try and get a weekly schedule that includes Safe Animal Shelter and/or Habitat for Humanity now that i have someone who can me drive me to where i need to be again luckily
    • Move on the the stuff on my proper To-Do List
    • (Also was talking about processing of the liquid from charcoal washing, dry + ethanol wash will seperate most of the remaining things it seems?)
  • Anyways guessing 5 hrs, getting sloppy from tiredness so logging off for the day
    • Will probs need to check for careless errors tomorrow too
  • Also need to move photos from my phone to the Charcoal Washing Expirementation page

3/17/2021

  • Today I Mainly did
    • Usual minor wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
  • ALSO
    • Continued some work on Charcoal Washing Expirementation
    • Finished adding all the links from my PC's "backlog" to the wiki
      • Need to do the ones on my phone tomorrow
    • Lots of question asking/commenting etc, will get some very intresting + useful answers soon
  • That's about it ~4-5 hours?

3/16/2021

  • Didn't do too much today
  • Today I Mainly did
    • Usual minor wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
  • ALSO
    • I finished up the youtube backlog short of those watching OSE meetings on marcin's channel
    • Did Some hands on experimentation with Charcoal Washing Experimentation (going to try crystalization/seperation of the Potassium Hydroxide and Sodium Carbonate tomorrow)
      • Also may do a burn test of the charcoal (not certain on if there is some way to do low tech calorimetry? At least could determing the remaining Ash Content (if any))
    • Reposted the videos i found worthwile to the discords, can make pages on their topics tomorrow
    • Have a new account or two coming in for approval Marcin BTW
    • Cleaned up some old pages that were brought up in discussion
    • Found a discord for a GREAT youtube channel doing open source diy projects that i found yesterday
    • Need to do all the to-dos besides what was stated above
    • Also Project Kamp is a new project by the same group as Precious Plastic essentially making something like the FeF so assistance in knowledge or even giving hardware would be neat (both as a nice thing, and as "real world" testing/development as well as cross-promotion)
    • Thats about it, guessing maybe 5 hours? Also that "hour logger" is still broken

3/15/2021

  • I've been doing lots of smaller intermittent work recently
  • Doing some larger "chunks" now so am going to do some proper logs + time estimates
  • Past few days i have been closing Google Chrome with a PILE of tabs i was "still working with"
  • Today i reduced that to only a few, so that backlog is finished
  • ANYWHO
  • Today I Mainly did
    • Usual minor wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
  • ALSO
    • Some Stuff on
    • Also made the page Non-Precious Metal Catalysts
      • This is very intresting, although for high temperatures it may be difficult
      • For anything where they won't denature protiens can be used from what i am hearing in some discussions at "SciHub Inc" so that may be VERY intresting for things like PLA Synthesis etc
      • For things like Solid Oxide Fuel Cells i will need to read around, and it will probably end up being something like nickel etc?
        • A ammount comparable to a car's catalytic converter would be fine IMO, but not optimal
    • Made a page on Pyrolysis Gasoline
      • And cleaned up some older pages like Home Fuels along the way
    • I made placenholder internal links, but i was reading up on using SOFCs as a carbon dioxide concentrator/scrubber in power plants/industry
      • Essentially they were optimizing the exhaust for high purity, and given there is no ash/soot and probably low NOx (or none if using pure oxygen) it is nearly pure co2
    • GRANTED the real reason they are looking into this is via funding for Enhanced Oil Extraction sadly
      • Kind of the whole IGCS stuff being developed for c l e a n c o a l then abandoned...gotta love unregulated capitalism, who needs a carbon tax anyways!
  • Also we had a "fire pit cookout" today so i MAY mess around with the remaining ash+charcoal mix a bit
  • ANYWAYS
  • Main "To-Do's" are:
    • Finish rest of computer tab backlog
    • Finish youtube video backlog
    • Review recent work and clean it up
    • Write down stuff on "Youtube CC Volunteer" group planning
    • Update stuff / make new pages for information/concepts found on recent YT videos
    • Move on to more of the one on the PROPER to-do list
    • (Also clean up all my pages on here, all my accounts etc
      • The mess they all currently are is going to come off as VERY unprofessional and all that, so if i'm running around doing things i should have them all "look nice" for first glances/searches
  • Guess that's about it, getting late, so i'm getting sloppy (also tiredness finally hitting after odd mix of family activities + daylight savings clock change (gotta love it) + sleep schedual needing some tuning)
  • Guessing 5hrs or so
  • The hour log is still broken
  • Also marcin if you read these, still no response on that email about the person contacting you on the FDM Filament Maker

2/11/2021

  • Need to make some pages on these thoughts:
    • The Circle (Book/Film), plot was all over the place, but points were valid concerns (Big Data vs Privacy, right to be forgotten, "newspeak" / odd-ness of echo chambers, mainly the "modern hip company" type, Cult of Personality, social power structures (Also a bit on the "digital treadmill", and keeping up with all the tasks / data which wasn't explored much, but was very true imo) )
      • It also didn't go too far into the an-prim esque "Technolgie BAD, reject computer return to monke" type stuff, which some things like this do
    • "Socialist Realsim" and more relevantly "Capitalist Realism"
      • That video on the "Big Tech Aesthetic"
    • Using the draft of an ac's heat exhaust to supplement that Solar Chimney / central chimney type thing
    • Document that "Electrochemical Printing" bit
    • Document that PP group making a filament extruder
      • Also there was some video on filiment diameter sensors by some major 3dp youtube channel today?
    • Need to look into Electrostatic Precipitator based dust reduction

2/4/2021

  • Pre-Log Stuff:
    • So first off, hello to all the new users!
    • Seems like a PILE of new acconts have been added recently, sometime i will try and give you the kind of tips i have for getting around the wiki, it's a bit of a mess in some areas, and the search engine does things like not recognising plurals without a manual adding of a REDIRECT page etc
    • also check out the Discord channel (and the Slack channel, but that i less active i guess)
      • Yell at me if you need a link (they expire sometimes, although i think i added a permanent link)
  • I also think a meeting, either on Jitzi or in slack/discord sometime to kind of get to know everyone may be good, it's been a while since the last dev meeting due to all the chaos of COVID etc (not even a meeting with too much of a "goal" / topic too probably)
  • ANYHOW
  • Today I Mainly did
    • Usual minor wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
  • ALSO
    • Did some tinkering with getting the Open Source Github for Tilt Brush working, still need to fiddle around with it a bit
    • Louis Rossmann Recently Published a video on Right to Repair Legislation in regards to agricultural equipment, so given the overlap, i was looking into how to contact them
      • A Link to the Video
      • Turns out they have a discord channel, it is mainly focused on the tech repair aspect, but there is a channel for "Agricultural Right to Repair" so i talked with people for 15 mins or so at the end of today. Seems like a lot of the people were EST or somewhere else in north america.
      • In the discussion i re-stumbled upon some stuff that will need some interlinking / "finishing out" (also some pages for a few groups i found, and some others in the chat shared) Mainly:
  • Small to-do's:
  • Guessing ~2-4 Hours, not much, especially on-wiki today

2/2/2021

  • Bit of a gap recently, just due to not doing too much wiki-side (also forgot to log last night, but did have a decent amount of stuff then
  • Still mainly tring to get the short term goal of some hands on prototype done
  • So work on these pages:
  • Also backed up some things finally (that 3d printed rouv, and the opposed piston engine stuff)
  • ANYWAYS
  • Today I Mainly did
    • Usual minor wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
  • ALSO
    • Moved stuff from a category abbreviated "OBI" to one with the full name
    • Did some "marking pages for later work" along the way
    • Wrote down some thoughts on how we may be able to kind of use the momentum of Tilt Brush Being Open Sourced, and that whole Gamestop Stock Rallied-Collective Action Messing with hedge funds, and that kind of momentum/shifiting view to gain some more tools?
      • Probably won't lead to much, a bit too ambitious, but something to think about (maybe make a petition (for whatever those are worth) once we have some defined "this should be open sourced" abandonwares pointed out)
    • Tried asking around on if anyone has messed around with Tilt Brush post it being open sourced (it supposedly needs to be run in unity almost like an "in development" game/app?
      • Suprisingly little intrest, granted sample size/target group? I did find some people with unity experience who can help me set it up, i need to check relevant reddit pages or something and find people actually intrested in it
        • I think Open Brush may have had a discord
    • Should get that working tomorrow?
    • Had a short discussion in the "3D Scanning" discord in the "hardware talk" channel on a device they are making, it's essentially a turntable on a xy cnc axis to allow for it to be moved/focused with a stationary camera/sensor setup
    • Also saw a video by Maker's Muse today on making laser cut foam inserts for drawers/cases, will be of use for Open Source "Pelican Case" type things in the future
  • Thats about it, guessing maybe 4 hours? My guestimates are bad lol, also that "hour logger" is still broken

1/29/2021

    • Today I Mainly did
    • Usual minor wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
  • ALSO
    • Finished up the [[Open Source Portable Forced Induction Thermoelectric Solid Fuel Stove page for the most part
      • Due to me lacking a welder, i either need to find someone local that i know who has one, delay the project until i can purchase my own, or i could do something more "hacked together" (also maybe brazing / "soldering" (in a plumber's context, not electrical) )
        • Also could use one of those two cheap OTS Rocket Stoves (if they aren't scams!) with some modifications
    • Dumped some links that have been sitting on my phone for way to long
  • I still need to document the LCA resources that person gave me yesterday
  • Tilt Brush is now open sourced by google, rather than being left to become Abandonware (i hope this becomes a trend (and that they could do this with other older abandoned projects...) ) so that was a neat bit of news
  • I saw a video on a small-medium scale Retort Still by Technology Connections the other day, should document it on-wiki
    • The focused more on the alchoholic beverage side of things, but it would be great for Butanol , Ethanol , and Methanol production
      • Due to not needing to be food grade it could maybe be cheaper (also DIY vs buying from the companies like they did)
    • This did lead me down the Random Packing vs Structured Packing in Packet Columns rabbit hole (which is also relevant to the Dessicant AC project i am starting
    • ANYHOW Guessing ~2hrs? (and the logger thing is still broken fyi)

1/28/2021

  • Just kind of context; i have ~100USD or so for "discrtionary spending" so i may get some sort of hardware project going
    • Probably the Dessicant AC, The OS-Biolite like stove, or something like that
  • Writing this down before i forget pre-final log of the day:
    • Talked on the "Engineering and Coffee" discord channel with an Enviromental Engineer on LCA's and similar stuff
      • Gave me some of the basics, and some resources i need to put in the LCA page
    • Also some minor small talk about Portland Cement vs Asphalt Pavement for roads etc with a Transportation Engineer
      • They said the "Chip and Tar" surface is probably the most polluting in that "it leaches"
  • Today I Mainly did
    • Usual minor wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
  • ALSO
    • Did some work on cleaning up the Open Source Portable Forced Induction Thermoelectric Solid Fuel Stove page
      • Led down some rabbit holes which burned time, but did produce productive work i guess
    • Wanted to get into the Dessicant AC as well, but guess that is for tomorrow
    • Also need more BOMs (i have a pc fan, two empty paint cans, and can get plenty of "soup cans" so sourcing may be better scrap wise?)
      • Dessicant AC would probably have to all be storebought
  • Guessing ~2hrs?

12/19/2020

  • Didn't finish as much as i wanted to, but i am getting tired and making "careless errors" so calling it a night
  • Today I Mainly did
    • Usual minor wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
  • ALSO
    • FINALLY wrote down my thoughts on OSE Branding (this page may need some polishing) (also want input from others)
    • I found a new "chaotic maker" channel, and they had some actually useful builds, or ones that could be easily adapted to practical uses
      • They also had a more formal, but still casual/humorous nature which was refreshing compared to the likes of "Michael Reeves"
    • Saw something on hyperloop (in a non elon-musk fanboy context). It seems the EU is doing some serious work on this, and even if just used as Pipeline Transport for cargo, it's impact could be huge
      • And unlike Highway Based PV Arrays there is no issue of crashes with panels placed above a Hyperloop tube (granted tunneling will most likely be used wherever possible as this should be more economical + reinforced
    • Was discussing Bats and UF's Bat Houses
      • These along with Bird Houses and Beehives seem like great, cheap projects/products for a makerspace
    • This lead me to thinking over CNC Router vs Lasercutter so i made a page on that. Seems precision is better with laser, but it is only good for thinner materials. Laser doesn't need endmills to be replaced etc. Laser Cutters produce smoke, not sawdust so a waste, not a co-product
      • Complex issue, but good to document thoughts on it i thought
    • Saw some stuff by that aforementioned channel on Pycrete ; mixing that with active cooling, or Ground Freezing type stuff is intresting me
    • Two videos i can add to the Open Source HID Project (one is less practical, but shows how to "hack" existing controllers well, the other may be of use for VR sims/biometric or health research
    • One video was on a Human Powered Device
    • Documented OpenScan (i vaugley remember doing this earlier, but it may have just been a personal YT playlist? Odd sense of dé já vu )
    • Somehow ended up doing a pile of work on the Biomass section again (red string of fate i guess lol)
    • On the Discord Side of Things I
      • I asked more about Lab Scale PLA Synthesis , not too much replies, but most people are probably busy?
      • I did quite a bit of discussing in the "SOciety/Systems" section of the "Futurist" discord channel. Talked more about decentralized production and what people htought that would look like. We were trying to find a Logistics SME on the server (or related ones). Didn't this wiki have someone with (higher level than grunts like me!) logistics experience/knowledge?
      • I asked on the SciHub Inc. Biology sub-channel about the Most Efficient Soil Based Biomass question
  • TOMORROW I SHOULD
    • Make a page on "Potential Projects Near User: Eric Including:
      • The Fleming Island Makerspace
      • An expansion of the Crossroads Lutheran Church Community Garden (more beds (with (D3D Adapted?) Farmbot s?), or a greenhouse, or a Community Orchard etc
      • An addition of a "cat cafe" to the local "no-kill animal shelter" to facilitate more adoptions and potentially some revenue + publicity
    • Also make something similar for ~100-200USD or so practical hardware dev projects i can do now that i have some holiday money to burn
      • Thinking making a Dessicant AC ?
      • A less practical but intresting one would be buying another "Logitech M570" gutting it, and making the "Air Bearing Trackball" (~30 USD for mouse, big unknown is the CNC Milled Pourous POM Plastc)
      • ALSO may want to get into making some videos of my own soon, due to having time to burn, some ideas/stuff to mess with, and some things i think aren't covered enough?
        • Granted this opens the whole "nothing ever dissapears on the internet, and you will hate everything you did 1 year ago" mess, but assuming i'm not doing something obscenely dumb/regrettable i should be fine (probably just do some tests/modification of that cheap quadcopter, some small projects, review some of my odd-er hardware, rant about coal combustion byproducts etc)
    • Contact the cat CS+R person again, i need to finally do that project, my procrastination has probably killed a cat or two (dark thought, but may be true)
    • Send the steam engine, and (other video i had on the "to-send list?) to marcin
      • Also marcin needs to get on the discord to make this collaboration / sharing ideas faster (that or slack, need to check that as well, haven't done so in a day or two myself)
    • look into Integrated Pest Managment methods for wasps
    • May be able to use some home improvement spare supplies to experiment with Soil Stabalization Fluid
    • Also was doing matinence on the washer+dryer and was thinking about greywater recycling, and a "hot working fluid powered clothes dryer (and the "central hot working fluid tank" concept
    • Supposedly my dad has a relitive who was some sort of engineer dealing with thermal efficncy systems, should contact him on this!
  • ALL IN ALL
  • Decently productive day, should be able to improve as i "get back to things"
  • Main concern is if any more terrorist attacks happen in the next few days due to political conspiracy theroies that may "de-rail" me again for a few days
  • Otherwise should be getting back to work
  • Guessing ~6hrs?

12/18/2020

  • Bit of a mess post attempted mob overthrow of government and all that drama, but settling back down again
  • Also had a few days of just not much produced work
  • ANYWAYS
  • Today I Mainly did
    • Usual minor wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
  • ALSO
    • Saw marcin talking about testing the shredder in the Open Source Shredder Data Collection page; It would be of use to see if it can shred wood/bamboo, misc organic matter, and metal scrap. Also final particle size and all that
    • I've watched a pile of Def Con presentations on youtube, and that had me thinking of applying the method of "pen testing" to hardware ( Application of the Concepts "Penetration Testing" / Destructive Testing to Hardware Reliability )
      • Essentially instead of having the CEB Press have those issues in the Belize Build (which granted it was sort of a beta test" i guess), you would have a group of people at FeF or some other dev site essentially TRY to jam the device / non-destructively break the swithces etc
      • Then you can notice (most of?) the issues faster, and thus fix more of them
    • Was discussing those "faucet suction sources" as a way to make the solar hot air heaters more efficient, then went on a huge rambling disussion on the wiki, then made some formal pages on the wiki, and categories on the discord to organize all that
    • In doing that i also kind of laid out what OSLT is on the page finally
    • I saw a video on an Open Source "Bite Sensor" by Applied Science , found some old pages that were were it fits, cleaned them up, then put the video link there
      • In doing so also did some minor fixes/additions to some other pages
    • Was thinking over Sodium Ion Batteries and someone on the discord knew one of the people behind one of the companies? Need to dig into this tomorrow
  • FINALLY
    • I have a video on someone making a (rather large) steam engine on youtube that is very well documented, may be able to get them to make the Modern Steam Engine next?
    • Also one on an OS SLM 3D Printer
  • All in all guessing ~4hrs?

12/30/2020

  • Today I Mainly did
    • Usual minor wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
  • ALSO
    • Was looking into how viscosity is measured (seems a graph of viscosity and temp is the main measurement for lubricating oils / hydraulic fluid, along with oxidation / thermal degradation etc?)
    • Due to that one precious plastic channel discussing it, went into more tech on pulp molding, i found someone who made one of the vacuum forms with a 3d printer, looked like a resin process, need to contact them
    • I did more learning/testing flights with the quadcopter, also found an article of someone hacking a similar one
      • It uses a non-secured wifi connection, so simple (granted another skillset to learn, could be a good "learning project" or i could just go the script kiddie route) (also need to make pages on the softwares used)
    • Got lost in more drilling tech stuff due to seeing something on an EGS plant
      • (also was trying to see if anyone used carbon/graphite/synthetic diamond powder (not the fancy looking optical quality, just for the strength, so similar to that diamond abrasive) as a proppant
      • Didn't find anything, granted despite Sand Mining being hell on the enviroment/the areas where it is mined from, i guess it is cheaper
        • One Paper had a saying "Some have said the ideal proppant is lighter than water, stronger than diamonds, and cheaper than dirt. In short, it does not exist."
          • Also later it added "Stronger than diamonds, light as water, and cheaper than dirt does not quite reach the qualifications for the holy grail of proppants, Vincent said. Proppant also must be transportable into the fracture, compatible with frac and wellbore fluids, allow acceptable cleanup of frac fluids, and resist flowback. It also must be thermally stable, chemically inert, environmentally benign, safe, and readily available in adequate quantities."
      • Almost completely irrelevant to OSE, but Well Drilling Rig + CCS + EGS + Aquifer Replenishment stuff takes me to there
    • Probably need to move on from the biopetchem stuff, reaching the upper limit of my ability i think?
  • Small to-do's
    • Log that "Technology Connections" bit on dishwasher water savings (if the water usage is relevant, open for debate)
    • Finally getting those 3 weeks or so of "cold weather" in florida, so had me thinking on Windcatcher / air intake vs recirculate in HVAC and all that
  • Rambling but TLDR: Didn't accomplish too much, may start moving on in the "to-do" list, and need to cleanup this section + move todos to the section
  • Maybe 1hr? Not much today

12/29/2020

  • Back from that holiday break of sorts
  • Had a good time, also got an inexpensive quadcopter that seems very capable! Tinkering with it, may try to do some photogrammetry or other fancy stuff (also want to figure out how to control from pc, only the included (cheap feeling, but usable) rc controller, or a phone (via 5ghz wifi it seems?) works as of now
    • Dump more info on that later
  • Today I Mainly did
    • Usual minor wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
  • ALSO
    • Did more Biorefinery / Bio-Crude Refinery stuff
      • The fact that gasoline may not even be a product makes comparisons to existing designs very odd
      • Need more research on what leads to what, as well as what is needed
      • It may be at a state where it can be "left as is until later intensive development"
    • Found out about the neat Sheltersuit project via a discussion in a discord channel on textile work
      • Seems like a great project, mainly wondering what materials they use, and if the patterns are available
    • Did a bit more research on that "juice pouch material", small distinction in that the flexible ones DON'T have that cardboard and thus more terminology hell!
  • Found the proper name for those molded pulp things, should help out the people looking into that in the Precious Plastic Discord
  • All in all Not much, but getting back into it!
  • Guessing 3hrs or so?

12/22/2020

  • Didn't do too much yesterday or today due to holidays ramping up probably will be true for the next few days as wel
  • Today I Mainly did
    • Usual minor wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
  • ALSO
  • Started the Stanscrap work related to Liquid Packaging Board , trying to get a "standard" OS design for those re-usabble shopping bags, but waterproof+minor insulated all via that material
  • Also was ranting on a recent vice video about Biofuels, i hope they can see that and make some content for sustainable biofuel/chemicals
    • People only hear the bad, often outdated tech, or things that are solely an issue cased by, you guessed right, u n f e t t e r e d c a p i t a l i sm
    • WHEN Bio-Refineries , at least from my thinking, will be ESSENTIAL for chemical + remaining liquid/gas fuel production post Low-Carbon Economy
      • Unless we want to use Power-to-X for everything, but this will be more lossy, and maybe less capable
        • Need to find LCAs on it, but that many more solar panels (as solar power towers etc have no hype and require investment...) + fiberglass wind turbines will probably have a larger "carbon investment" let alone custom P2X plants, not just "drop in" biocrude, but here i go rambling
  • Real solution would be for me to make quality content myself...but i doubt my abilities, am too much of a perfectionist, and don't have any good "kit"
  • Once i get a midi+xlr interface, a decent camera, and a quiet place to reccord...then i might make some neat stuff
  • "Eric rants about biomass for 2 hours, the video essay" (i can see the likes already...)
  • Granted making some aesthetically pleasing (or maybe even tedx? i don't seem to be the "type" idk) content on Stanscrap to give that a "Precious Plastic" level of hype + development would be neat, especially given the simplicity of the concept over making injection molding machines, or a tractor
  • All in all got some good progress --maybe too much, lowkey ahead of marcin in edits according to that one page "imagine taking a break PATHETIC one must obsess about biofuel!-- but taking a breat for holiday fun with the family for a few days
  • Should be back in 4-7 maybe?
  • Happy Winter Holidays to all of you!

12/20/2020

12/19/2020

  • Pre-Final Log Quick Thoughts
    • Robotic Electric Lawmower as a unique product/aspect of a toolshare
    • Batch Production of Preserved Broth from A Community Garden as a better product than just vegtables alone (ie not just carrots and onions which may be harder to use but essentially "good to go" soup
    • "Modular Floors" :
      • Make essentially a "box building" with a roof having a redundant "rectangle layout" so that that could be removed and replaced with another floor or two + the same roof module for an addition instead of vast structual changes
      • probably wouldn't work for high floors without goofy levels of overbuilding?
    • Do the math on steel needs reduction via Composite Rebar instead of Steel Rebar
    • Quick bit on microwaving rags for reducing need for new ones/intense washing
    • Ramps instead of stiars
      • Makes it far more Accessible
      • Allows for even simple robots to travel between floors (even simple OTS "Roomba" style "dumb" Robotic Vacuum Cleaners
      • Will probably take more space to allow for that proper slope (also need hard data on ADA Reccomended Specs
    • Page on Carpet vs Tile/Other Solid Surface
    • Concept names for the youtube "super group"
      • "Youtube Action Comittee" like super-pac but youtube (could be making fun of, or misinterpreted as that corrupt thing though)
      • "Maker Action Comittee" or MAC
      • "Maker Action Group" or MAG
    • Goddamn i want a more phonetic-spelling based english aaaaaaaaaaa
    • Done with all of the very off topic stuff now-ish now moving onto the more "usual" work
  • END OF DAY STUFF:
  • ANYWHO
  • Today I Mainly did
    • Usual minor wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
    • Did some unrelated stuff due to categories overlapping
    • On more of the "Core Tasks" bit:

12/18/2020

  • Am back now
  • Pre-Final Log Quick Thoughts
    • May want a category for "Efficiency" or "Efficnency Optimization" (not Pollution , but not Waste Managment , moreso just "High MPG Vehicles, Insulation, and Low Flow Taps" so i think it's unique enough to need a category, guess i have more n a m i n g s c h e m e h e l l to work out
    • I feel a sense of dread, Incomplete Pages is growing
      • " site under construction " may be a good search term to find many of the older ones
    • Need to make a page or someting on Fossil Fuels and nonrenewable resources, and related pages
  • END OF DAY STUFF:
  • ANYWHO
  • Today I Mainly did
    • Usual minor wiki work
    • Usual SMM work (+ a f l a m e w a r in one non-ose discord channel. Was a subsection on societies/systems and an ancap supporting/beleiving person came in and threw *ALSO
    • Made a category for Logistics (mainly just shipping side now, but conveyors + warehouse + managment stuff could be found+interlinked or made later)
      • Also updated some OLD pages related to all of this
    • Re-discovered some gaps in the Waste Water Treatment bit, did some more interlinking + basic page making
    • Saw a video on a Tool Mount and put the info in there
      • I also asked on E3D's discord if the toolchanger could be adapted for manual use (i sense standard hell developing with this, and would love to have one single standard, so trying to plan that out BEFORE the mess)
  • Made a page on Readability (especially with these "spam updates" when i do a pile of fixes / adjustments on a PILE of pages, it really clogs up the "Recently Changes" section, and this font is really getting to me (also need to look into if there is some way of spaces between letters / lines changing "non-destructivelty" so just on the viewer side? )
  • That's about it, Guessing ~6-8hrs?

12/11/2020

  • Still have that "what date am i using for logging issue" (also the hour logger itself is still broken)
  • Pre-Final Log Quick Thoughts:
    • May want to make a category for Complete Pages that still need more research like "Pages with To-Do's " ?
    • Just changed my "OSE Wiki" chrome bookmark from the Main Page to Recent Wiki Changes , should reduce the Small Waste of Time it has been (forever recently) of clicking that, then moving the mouse left to "the spot", then hitting the button, to a single click
    • Also discovered "Mouse Button 3" opens a link in a new tab (chrome didn't show the hotkey when i did it via right click (or "mouse button 2"), unlike "standard things" like "crtl" + "c" etc)
    • All in all more neat productivity stuff
  • END OF DAY STUFF:
  • ANYWHO
  • Today I Mainly did
    • Usual minor wiki work
    • Usual SMM work (+ a f l a m e w a r in one non-ose discord channel. Was a subsection on societies/systems and an ancap supporting/beleiving person came in and threw Logical Fallacies around, hope they can grow from that mess
  • ALSO:
    • Made two new categories + linked pages to them:
    • Someone made a 3D Printable Centrifugal Fan sort of by accident? If they release the cad this essentially solves that need that was the main remaining hurdle for a fully FLOSS + FLOSH Dessicant AC , so that's exciting
      • Granted could use optimization, and beter materials, etc obiously, but it will at least "just work"
    • Continued work on the Pollution category, so that is similar to the others in the "to-do" section of this page in levels of "complete-ness"
    • Found out about Lexend (Font) which seems neat!
    • Also some other neat and relevant videos were released by people i am subscribed to, either added to the wiki if significant / specific enough, or discussed them on the discord
  • Not the most/as much as i wanted, but progress is progress
  • Guessing around 5-6 Dev Hours? ( hour logger application on this page is still broken, need assistance on that issue )

12/10/2020

  • Still have that "what date am i using for logging issue" (also the hour logger itself is still broken) BUT
  • I saw spacex's test launch/flight of their "starship" rocket. Was amazing it got as far as it did, i was expecting another pad explosion! (which we did get, but after the other 98% of the flight (it didn't "stick the landing" ) so i guess we got data and an entertaining explosion! ) Was exciting, as my frantic talking here and the discord shows lol
  • ANYWHO
  • Today I Mainly did
    • Usual minor wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
  • Did SOME work on the pollution section (not enough, issues thart caused today's delay below)
  • Also dumped some data on the OSE game, as well as made a category for all that
  • Made a page on Project Creep which should segway into some of my 'honing in" post "figuring out the huge scale"
    • This should ultimatly boil down to:
      • The Fleming Island Makerspace planning (+ implementation...but covid...and florida's response...)
      • The collaboration with Habitat for Humanity as the OBI work marcin is working away at nears closer and closer to the demo house, then teaching/distributing production/scaling up
      • Also any "small projects" (underestimation of scope/dev time at it's finest...) that pop up in relation to these (wall mounts/ HMCU stuff (for both storage in the makerspace, as well as transit of stuff (or even a small Mobile Makerspace for schools/pr events/makerfairs etc) ), POWER TOOLS (could be huge for habitat for humanity etc...once they would get "up to spec" don't want to hype / distribute bad tools
        • Also those LSEVs as that is a decent market locally
      • But again Project Creep , getting there though
  • Also making a formal "to-do" section to make this section not repeat that, but still have it on this page ( may be a redundant copy on it's own page, check for that later )
  • That's about it, Guessing ~3hrs?

12/9/2020

  • Going to log off BEFORE i make careless errors today!
    • I got up early to watch SpaceX's Starship 15km (errrrrrr actually let's scale it down to 12.5km) test flight
      • It got moved gradually later, and finally happened at 5:30 EST
        • Only to be scrubbed at T -5 secconds or so
    • TLDR not happy, and even MORESO armchair critical of their testing/announcement of testing process vs nasa + other private contrators (short of boeing, as that ISS test shows, they are getting sloppy to cut costs as well...)
  • ANYWHO
  • Today I Mainly did
    • Usual minor wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
  • Also:
    • Wrote down some more thoughts on Prospective Models of The Organizational Structure of Post-Development, Post-Decentralization, Post-Fossil Fuel, Economies
      • Mainly just trying to make things lest abstract, more "what industries will exist, and what will they look like from a zoomed out perspective (in depth work...coming soon™)
    • Created Standardized Scrap after discussing this issue in a video conference with scihouse inc, definetly of use in developing areas, AS WELL AS standardizing the "junk" you can use so there are no more of those "make item x for FREE using only JUNK" when the junk can be a mass spectrometer etc (ie only things that are nearly universal, not location specific scrap/junk etc)
    • Created some more categories, most importantly one for Pollution
    • Added some small pages/updated them on some things i encountered in the day ( ROVs and the 5S Process mainly)
    • Also discussed the Home DC Standard with people with actual electronics knowledge which added some insight + concrete details lol
    • That's about it
  • TOMORROW I SHOULD
    • Proofread today's work
    • FInish out the Pollution topic, it is nearly there, and with that over all the "general information" pages should be done-ish?
      • Organizing them however...
    • Continue organization / interlinking of all of the Incomplete Pages and Orphan Pages
      • Also talk with people on things like the search engine, or some sort of "in-wiki" webcrawler for small tasks i do now
    • Start up the Precision Agriculture work if time allows for it
    • ALSO contact all the people in previous bits + the people i discussed with User: Marcin in some emails (which i also need to document on-wiki)
  • All in all ~5hrs work or so
    • Hour Logging tool is still broken

12/8/2020

  • Bit of gap due to a mix of reletives visiting (as well as some covid scares), although mostly wiki side, still did some talking around + work on the discords
  • Did some stuff today on the wiki
  • Mainly:
    • Interlinked/Updated Some Stuff Relating to the Potable Water System utilized by OBI (was talking with someone intrested in this, and went to grab the link to the topic, thought it would be a quick search...90's search engine thought otherwise, hopefully those links help with future user's searches on this topic
      • This still needs some work
    • Encountered another glue (was watching a video on someone using Foaming FDM Filament to 3D Print a Flying Wing (i'm excited to see someone do this with a Belt 3D Priner ...) ; They used "CA Glue" so i logged that family of adhesives, also mentioned "locktite" (which i somehow forgot) and that is definetly a need imo, so logged that as well
    • Watched a PILE of stuff on Traffic Engineering, intresting stuff
      • Especially making things "passively safe" ( "conflict points" was a relevent term) so i updated some of the related pages, and made an effort to organize them better
    • Then got into Precision Agriculture and finally made some pages on that (have been thinking it over forever)
  • That's about it, starting to make "careless errors" and getting tired
  • Did also have some goofy late night "hard takes" on things like ISP (and other utility) privitization, and Technical Literacy etc on the discord which was fun
  • Also had an article i posted on there about a new(ish need to research more) HVDC project in India mainly for hydroelectric power, so sort of a beginning of a Supergrid (especially given india's scale, their development has been amazing to watch, especally given their consideration of sustainability + education along the way (granted many political skelytons in the closet as well, so not ALL praise, but i digress)
  • That also lead to discussing on The Need for a Home DC Standard so i updated that page i think?
  • Nothing too much, but significant enough i am updating my log
  • Getting tired and sloppy (also want to see the launch and/or flight and/or explosion of the "Starship" prototype tommorow assuming it hasn't been moved from the planned ~9:00ish EST
  • Clean all this work up tomorrow @me
  • ANYWHO guessing ~5hrs

11/30/2020

  • May have messed up the dates on the last few? That or using UTC date, and staying up late, will check tomorrow + fox if need be
  • Didn't accomplish all that much, stayed up a bit late, but got some things done at least
  • Kind of just threw papers at Biocrude after reading the abstrsact / any "major info" (like skimming the "conclusions" section etc), not in depth analysis, but still chipping away at the data gathering step at least
  • Also made another category for safety stuff, will need to do the interlinking for that later (probably many unlinked pages on relevant topics)
  • That was about it honestly
  • ~1hr work or so

11/29/2020

  • r e a c h i n g p e a k e f f i c i e n c y
    • Enable moar macros to increase Point Production (was playing "universal paperclips" today)
  • ANYWHO
  • Got most of the things i wanted to accomplish done
  • Had the journal/books/whitepaper organizing, was mentally exhausting, but discussed some stuff (including my hatred for Microbial Fuel Cells ) Supposedly Platipi and Wobats are UV florescent, so that's australia for ya i guess
    • Also makes me want a literbox trainable platapus with the neurotoxin gene knocked out, or even just in the general vecinity of where i could have a light show
      • Platatus rave (like crab rave but down under)
  • Then devoured an unhealthy amount of pie, and regrouped
  • Got some pages together, need to actually fill them with more content tomorrow (ie that study on so-fc hydrogen, and actual papers on composition of bio-feedstocks)
  • Also writing down more housing related stuff, but nothing too much
  • Biggest thing if anything was just organization (via categories here, and the SciHub Inc work
  • find someone who knows Autohotkey and make MORE MACROS (+ make a page on it, and learn it, not just be a script kiddie)
    • Mainly:
      • One for " [[Category: 'xxxxxx"
      • One for "A Video by the Youtube Channel' xxxxx"
      • A "Basic Page Template" of the basics+internal links+external links
      • Potentially more "hot swappable" ones to have more than one "copy+paste" (ie one for links, but another for intermittent phrases that need a hotkey due to repition, but not one that is used often enough to justify a permenent hotkey
      • An automated timecode generator (if autohotkey can use time/date data) to make the "Discussion" tabs faster/easier
    • Even just these few ones would save a lot of total time
  • All in all that's about it
  • Tomorrow i want to do all of ^that, and also make a personal "to-do" page
  • Guessing ~5hrs?

11/28/2020

  • Feeling like i'm getting back "into the rhythm" again (if i had 5 USD for every time i said that i could buy a 3d printer lol)
  • Got most of the things i wanted to accomplish done
  • Outside of needing to make moar emails! (also try and setup discord "freecad learning club" )
  • Tomorrow I Am
    • Organizing the library of scinetific papers Scihouse has tommorow with the group at ~11:00am EST, not certain how long that will take
    • Also going to meet with their algae project group and rant about Bio-Crude and HTL for a good while lol (Sometime soon, no official date, but may happen post-organizing papers)
  • Clean up the Unfinished Pages backfill
  • Start thinking through bio-petrochemistry processes that would be needed for the List of Needed Petrochemicals
  • Also i want to make a more solid form of the Fleming Island Makerspace Plans (ie not me being like "wooooooooooo makerspace timeeeee" and moreso "Here is my 10 page introductory report, my spreadsheets for preliminary analysis of costs for both the in library, and custom buildign phases, and a slideshow presentation"
  • Granted may be a bit overambitious so will probably spill over the next few days
  • Also need more Autohotkey macros for categorys etc, having only 1 copy+paste and doing many categories + links with it is slowing me down
  • Maybe ~6 Hours Today? Don't know, and the log on this page for that is still broken

11/27/2020

  • Usual gap due to not doing any huge bursts of work / concentrated work for a while
  • Had a bit of a research dive today
  • Today I Had a bit of a burst of page making, but it was also just finally making thoughts coherent and "on paper"
  • Mainly trying to figure out all the "Big Picture" stuff, it may be less valuable than the short term "deliverables", but it really has been eating away at me
  • I think i am getting there
    • With this page, OSE's List of Needed Petrochemicals i am trying to nail down all the "products" needed, so i can walk that back to all the processes needed in a Biorefinery
    • With this page Analysis of Scale and Value Chain Optimization in a Post-Development, Post-Decentralization, Post-Fossil Fuel, Economy
      • Which sidenote, do i win the award for the longest/most clunky page name yet?
      • This page is me trying to peice together what may still remain somewhat centralized, i think refineries, and mining maybe
        • Still though local/cummunity scale, "county" scale, and state scale are where the majority of the trade would happen (i think), i think national+international would only be for luxury goods, crafts/creative works, and disaster relief
    • Working out the whole waste side of things (i think that is near completion, short of hazardous/medical waste)
  • Also did all the usual discord discussing
  • Tommorow i will work on
    • Finalizing today's thoughts
    • Trying to network with all the new users being added
    • Maybe set up dates for remote-group-learning of freecad on the discord (we were all talking about needing to learn it today)
    • Guessing ~4 hrs maybe?

11/3/2020

  • Usual gap due to not doing any huge bursts of work / concentrated work for a while
  • Had a bit of a research dive today
  • Today I Mainly did
    • Usual minor wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
  • Also:
    • Finished the composites stuff for the most part
    • In terminology hell againg with basalt vs rock vs mineral etc
      • Asking around on some discords so may get a difinitive answer later, if not will just make pages and hope for the best lol
    • I was also watching some stuff on F-1 cars and they brought upp all the mass savings via composites, and that made me loop back thought wise to the Fiber Reinforced Pipes and the OS Quadrocycle stuff
  • That's about it, voted today for the first time so that was neat
  • I Think Tomorrows Focus Will Be:
    • Drone + Camera and maybe audio? stuff, as marcin seems to be diving into all that
    • Transfering data on the Quadracycle project from yt playlist to wiki
    • Still have some papers on my phone on biofouling prevention on ship hulls via bubble curtains, was intresting, and supposedly effective for all the stuff short of "slimes"
    • Also had some paper on catalytic syngas to butanol, instead of a fermentaion process
  • I'm guessing around 1hr or so? The logger is still showing that error message

10/31/2020

  • Usual gap due to not doing any huge bursts of work / concentrated work for a while
  • Had a bit of a research dive today
  • Today I Mainly did
    • Usual minor wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
  • Also:
    • In my continual attempting to figure out all the Carbon Foam stuff, i discovered it's high tech relitive Carbon Fiber Reinforced Carbon
      • It is usually for aerospace etc, so irrelevant for most uses, but did yeild much better "real sources" for producing the synthetic graphite / carbon
      • Seems thermosets, and coal/tar derived "pitch" are the most common method
      • ALSO there is a pile of "tailor-ability" to them, changing minor aspects of the pitch can massively change properties of the "carbon matrix"
      • I can see problems with this and Bio-Tar variability etc, so i feel some sort of plastic, or even "basic bread" (like what the foam used) would have more consistency + user friendlyness
      • I need to see if there is any research on using thermoplastics like PLA for basic feedstocks, assuming no as that probably isn't aerospace grade (and also the plastic needs to produce lots of carbon, so the chemical composition IS IMPORTANT not just physical properties)
    • This also led into some more page making/research along the lines of Carbon Fiber etc
    • I watched the 45 min or so presentation on the C-C Composites, and it was by the same professor as many of the biofuel videos; turns out it is an India run public education thing. I found the "core" channel and the sheer number of potential courses was astounding
    • There is a Precious Plastics Branch that is pretty major, in Sarasota Florida (more south than tampa, so a huge drive for me, but still nearby in a relitive sense), doing phone-tag type stuff, but should have better contact in a day or few
    • Still pondering "Real Products" for PP stuff, ie not trinkets/plant pots (short of modular greenhouse applications...)
      • Was thinking making full size playgrounds in areas without them would be neat, but hard to get data on where + liability + etc
      • Skateboards/Surfboards/etc are quite well established, and especially with surf/wake/body/ "kick boards" for training/ other water stuff that may be a decent market, especially with the whole "you use the ocean/water, and we help it" pitch with Ocean Cleanup / Beach Cleanup integration
      • FDM Filament is huge, but i want more data on reliability from the Lyman Extruder etc before i base a business model on it (don't want poor reviews of filament from customers, or failed prints and thus lost machine hours on on-site machines etc)
      • Marcin (if you read this) , i think you had a lyman so even just measuring it with a caliper every few cm's or something like sliding one on it may be useful, also just "print hours/fails with the same parts+settings"
        • Granted using giant nozzles may make this less of an issue vs using 0.4 or even 0.2 nozzles for detailed fdm prints (not "making a part", but "making art/models that need less layer lines" )
  • I Think Tomorrows Focus Will Be:
    • Finishing all of the composite materials stuff
    • Contacting the PP-Sarasota Person
    • (Still need to email the solar companies as well)
  • That's about it, guessing 4 hours or so? Hour logger may still be broken

10/22/2020

  • Today I Mainly did
    • Usual minor wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
  • Also:
    • Got done most of the things is set out to do today
    • Main issue was not finding the source of the sweethome 3d error, and the blender file loading issue still remains to be fixed
      • The latter of which seems to be an issue of my gui familiarity/file formatting or something
      • Sweethome 3D is honeslty unknow, i will try another hard uninstall and reinstall (i upposedly tried both the 64bit (what my pc is natively), and the 32bit (to see if it was more stable), may be an issue of not fully uninstalling the original "bad one".
        • I also did have the render running in the lower right corner, could this be the issue (granted my pc CAN render, but may be a driver issue etc)
      • Either way as the photo shows that program isn't working for me now
    • Got most of the E-Waste stuff done, most "low level searching" leads to gold recovery, copper is more elusive, but somewhat there, the crazy stuff like cobalt etc may just be removed via dissasembly, but IMO that is the truely concerning stuff when people do small scale/improper recycling (the waste oil burner channel is helping a customer in some other country on e-waste melting, so that...situation has led me down this particular rabbit hole
    • Outside of those things, and some wiki-interlinking i didn't do too much else
  • I Think Tomorrows Focus Will Be:
    • Cleaning up what i did today
    • Work on clearing up how i am working with / communicating with the three or so groups i stumbled upon
    • Awaiting replies to inquieries all over the place
    • Digging into legal stuff on gardens/ground cover/ microgrids / building codes in the local area
  • That's about it.
  • I'm guessing ~5 hours I am still locked out of logging hours in the above tool due to the same unresolved error

10/21/2020

  • Today I Mainly did
    • Usual minor wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
  • Also:
    • James Bruton is essentially building a Shop Aid robot (seems to be a dev platform for their learning of ROS ? That or it may become another "actual project" like Open Dog (guess we will have to "FIND OUT NEXT WEEK" (like some tv show) )
    • Was introduced to Croud Supply and their PILE of OS-H products, mainly electronics
      • Also may have some new intrested people / electronics developers with this networking bit
    • Was reading up on per-room Humidity + Temperature Monitoring, some cheap bluetooth devices (main concern/annoyance of mine is their usage of "button batteries" in the e-ink ones, unlike the AAA lcd ones
    • Also wrote down some thoughts i've been having of the overall effect various OSE+PP+Activism activities could have on the problems caused by suburbs/urban sprawl
    • I was attempting to do some "3D Drawing/Drafting" in VR with my vive cosmos the other day, drew a decent "golf cart" design, granted this had no constraints/strait line tools etc so it was very rough
      • i need better (dedicated) software, I was just using a "draw tool" in the "home menu" Blender only supports VR inspection unmodded, and the mod is limited/unstable, but i may be able to try that. DEFINETLY more intuative (my pc didn't like the load though lol, made a good case for usage as a space heater) than a monitor
  • I Haven't done many entries recently due to not feeling my contributions were TOO major (ie just 1-5 edits, and checking the dicsord + slack)
  • I Seem to be finally "getting back into the flow" (granted staying up this late may not help...) so should have more tangible progress / deliverables in the coming days
  • I Think Tomorrows Focus Will Be:
    • FINALLY emailing all the people on my "to-do" list. (Especially the solar panel people)
    • Troubleshoot what is going on with my Sweethome 3D (may be that i chose 64 bit and that is unstable?), and Blender (can't seem to correctly import files?)
    • Put in info on E-Waste (mainly on who to send it to for proper (non "dump it on some developing country") recycling as it requires nasties like cyanide leaching etc (and some of the materials are cadmium, mercury etc)
  • That's about it.
  • I'm guessing ~3-4 hours I am still locked out of logging hours in the above tool due to the same unresolved error

10/8/2020

  • Just realized i've been doing M/D/Y not sure if i want to change that or not
  • Anywho
    • Today I Mainly did
    • Usual wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
  • Also:
    • Did all the cable stuff, a final "nice to do" thing would be to make cost estimates for utilizing this concept (if it wan't in all the OBI stuff already)
    • Made a decent page on Hydrocarbon Reforming (as it turns out you CAN use non methane hydrocarbons, need more info on what you can/can't)
      • Didn't do much paper reading, more so dumping links, need to read those tomorrow or so
    • Got pages started for the "integration stuff" (on the computer side, hot water etc still needs one, but i did make a basic flowchart)
    • I found a good solar yield/building calculator (it also does tax benefits etc math too i think?)
    • Then i hit the hell that was the old archive of solar things
    • Will try and fix that tomorrow
      • I feel like i am one of the Librarians in the Library of Babel trying to frantically map out the entire library, and read all the books (and i'm just doing OSE wiki now, add wikipedia...)
      • Anywho getting closer and closer with each chunk i guess
  • I Think Tomorrows Focus Will Be:
    • Contacting People (need to send a lot of emails i've been putting off/getting distracted from)
    • Finishing out the "system core" stuff
    • Then, time allowing, try and do some of the math
    • One thing to consider, i will be doing 1 video conference with that research group tomorrow, so don't want to overcommit myself as usual lol
  • That's about it; guessing ~6 hours?

10/7/2020

    • Today I Mainly did
    • Usual wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
  • Also:
    • Finished out hydrogen vehicle stuff (short of math, but i will do some "round trip efficiency" work tomorrow/later)
    • Did lots of dicsussion on the discords
      • Had a teleconference with one person writing a paper on a CLES system utilizing a stirling cryocooler, and some form of turbine for the energy recovery portion
        • Mostly preliminary, but intresting idea
        • ALSO it is related to my concept of a "central working fluid tank" (i made a flowchart i will share tomorrow)
        • Also they were discussing how great Hydronic Heating etc is, so i showed them the OSE system
      • Precious Plastic Has S o o o many people developing FDM Filament Makers ; The amount of Redundancy Waste hurts me
        • I want a dedicated channel in their discord, but until i can nail down some admin, i will just try and herd people towards collaborating + ose's design work
    • Some more people joined the wiki! (i need to dump my "hullo, here is useful stuff" mesages on wiki, have been talking off wiki on discord)
    • I opened the CAD of the Biodigester , so was figuring out how that specific design works
      • Also learned how to make parts transparent and navigate a bit better (still missing inventors "home/panick" button, i can get way too zoomed out/disoriented at times)
        • May have been a bug where navigation failed at times? (granted running a huge file never helps processing)
    • I dumped down a agricultural frost prevention device i saw and had the link on my smartphone forever; the Selective Inverted Sink
  • I still need to
    • Finish out Hydrocarbon Reforming Stuff
    • Do the math on efficiencies of various systems / get someone who can do so
    • Add more to the whole "Systems Integration" of newer power storage stuff + solar thermal etc in the OBI aspect
    • Also need to put down cable futureproofing stuff
  • ANYWHO i'm logging off for the day; guessing ~4 hours?

10/6/2020

  • E a c h - t i m e - i - c l o s e - a - t a b - t w o - m o r e - a p p e a r
  • Going to call it for today, and deal with the ones i have on toyota's fuel cell stuff, and some flow battery stuff tomorrow
  • Today I Mainly did
    • Usual wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
  • Also:
  • Digging into Hydrogen stuff more
    • Hydrogen Embrittlement is still somewhat unknown to me, that one EPA paper i posted yesterday said it wasn't too much of an issue, but another said it caused a critical failure
    • The numbers are swirling in my head a bit, i read that myths paper, and i agreed with 3/4 of it's points. The storage issue was my main concern, also their predictions seemed to depend heavily on fuel cell usage, not on devices like HIVEs
    • Will need to finish out all that thinking tomorrow or so
    • The book did make the case for utilization solely in non-mobile applications near term, may make sense as storage space doesn't matter then
    • Also brought up bio-methanation on the scihouse discord, got some discussion, but nothing TOO new (they also added an algae section recently, so i discussed algae oil / biopetrochemisrty based of HTL of algae etc there a bit
  • Precious Plastic released a "bio press" for biodegradable bowls etc
    • I voiced my opinions on these, and more practical solutions in my mind (ie less "Artisan Hand Made Quiena + Hemp Bowls", and moreso "Add enviromental cleanup, expand sorting methods to make "plastic mining" a source as well as reduce pollution, and "end of life" (ie pyrolysis) to the PP ecosystem to turn polluting non-recyclables/unidentifiables into energy and stabalized waste
    • I feel proper disposal and reduction in wasteful use cases is key, not "bowls you can throw all over the place, because they biodegrade anyways"
  • Also saw an intresting video on Permeable Pavement by Practical Engineering
  • Guessing 5 hrs?

10/5/2020

  • First update in a while, i haven't been doing too much on-wiki work
  • Today i did quite a bit of stuff, mainly on viability of hydrogen ICE utilization (i found a pile of papers...now i need to READ them)
  • Also was looking into Hydrogen to Methane Pathways
    • The typical catalytic method is PROBABLY too intensive for decentralized small scale?
      • The ISS supposedly does use it for recovery of oxygen and water? Link Here
    • HOWEVER there is an emerging biological method that seems very promising, especially given it would complement OSE's exisitng use of anerobic digestion
  • Also did some condensing/cleaning up of some pages
  • Have been doing a pile of usual off wiki discord discusssion, and some "classes" of sorts on the research heavy one.
    • May contact them on the methane producing/digesting bacteria
  • Also supposedly having a meeting at "Tuesday, October 6th at 5:30am UTC" on deciding what robotics project this one group wants to do, unsure how many will turn up to said meeting, so may not stay up for it, but will stay up around untill, check in, then decide what to do
  • That is about it.

9/12/2020

  • Had another good day of OSE work today
  • Did a PILE of networking
  • "Scihouse Inc" on discord had a great lecture today (mainly basic bio stuff today so i was "covered" so to speak, we are moving on to plasmid creation and other GM/GE stuff!
  • Found another person (from downtown jax) intrested in makerspace stuff (they are VERY capable on bio and have a small lab already! ) via the discord (and they brought up another person aswell!)
  • Found some more intrested people in reading around discord
  • ALSO someone made a new OS VR HMD (not great tech, but more momentum after OSVR died, which is good!
  • Was looking into potential future car options (more so for fun)
  • Annoys me how few CNG vehicles there are, outside of large utility vehicles, a full on van, or a decent pickup truck both with aftermarket conversions are the only way really
    • Also none for full on 100% ethanol, not sure on methanol given racecars do this? (need to check out enthusiast group's info on this)
  • Also many sites hide fuels, i think ONE had a "pick fuel type" and showed options
  • Others use a pile of abbreviations and have it be an afterthought
  • Also CNG Fuell Cell - Plugin Hybrid, one can dream...
  • Final Thing: was re-reading the Lesego Roadmap and sounds like we have somewhat similar ideas and it would be neat to try and "start up" around the same time for cooperation
    • Only downside to this is that we seem to be increasing in cases with the school reopening and shit...again so unless a vacciene and all that can fix this...it'l be a while for me
  • ANYWHO
  • Outside of misc small idea jotting down, thats about it
  • Not all ose-ey but i'll put down 6hrs i guess?

9/9/2020

  • So for future reference i am off wendsdays and saturdays
  • Didn't do too much today, mainly just tried to write down some thoughts on the OBI project
  • Solar alone is enough to be "self sufficient" to a certain degree for many, that plus wind, and the occasional biomass may mean excess power and thus it could be sold, trying to get enough info to do the math for that
  • Also energy is hard, as most "off-grid" setups may be too much for the everyman to deal with, but the tech ose uses IS going to be more efficent in some cases, and thus it may be "in-between" for house energy use.
    • If done right heating and cooling may be mainly (solar)thermal energy based, with a small fraction of electricity, thus that should heavily decrease electricity use there
    • I am unsure on the current design's Daylighting capability, but that and perhaps Smart Lighting etc will effect that category
    • TV + Computers + Portable Electronics are a constant in my opinion, but can be charged at the "right time" (see Smart Grid and V2G for info on this) to make this less of an impact on the energy usage v production
    • The end goal in my opinion is try and export as much power as we can (in buget of course) to make the house partly "pay for itself" ? I may be waaaaay off on the math but it does intruige me (probably would more so make it "more affordable" or less per month not some huge money machine lol)
  • On the note of selling produce, i know some neighbors with citrus trees (albeit here in florida), and you get more fruit than you could ever want as a household with one tree and end up supplying the area (same with tropical areas with mango trees etc) so having one or more, could definetly be sent to a local food bank, restraunt, or farmers market etc
  • I also posted some information from email feeds
    • The asphalt one made sense (the smell and all), but does make me conflicted, as the ease of maitenence/recycling layed out in the yt video on asphalt concrete, vs the potential downside of polution is something to sort out
  • Also the usual discussing things on the related discords, asking some questions on the slack channel, etc
  • Guessing 5 hrs?

9/4/2020

  • Haven't done TOO much focused work, did some today, so decided to log it
  • Was looking into Onsite Power Generation and Storage-To-Grid and how it could integrate to an OBI building
    • Main use case i am pondering is collaborating with Habitat for Humanity locally, integrating this tech, and the recent OBI developments
      • Not super soon obiously but perhaps 1 year or so in the future
  • Found someone else developing a proper FDM Extruder on the Precious Plastic Discord Channel (Subchannel for germany, bit of language barrier, but the similarity between our languages, and google translate should make it Ok)
    • Still getting info on this, may make a page later
  • I've been doing a PILE of work at walmart recently, so not much free (or non exhausted) time, but i still try and get on
    • Got a paycheck today, mostly will be spent for replacing my dying audio technica headphones with a new pair (got a good 6 years of heavy use out of em lol), and some other small things, plus savings.
    • In two weeks the expendable portion of it will probably go to some useful tech on ym "to get list" and/or OSE projects!
    • Also a huge amount of stray cats there, need to network with the shelter i volunteer at to get a food+bed/cat nest station going (also want to add a "wildlife/hunting camera" for group identification. After a while can get them in and get them vaccinated and sterilized, release the SUPER feral ones, adopt out the rest that can be around people/like people
      • Too tired to make it now, but will probably make a page group for this (and may revive those tracker collar projects, even simple radio ping and a radio direction finder would work)
  • I'm tired and rambling, so am logging off for now
  • Will guess 6hrs or so? and will be back on in 6-10 hrs or so

8/10/2020

  • Going down the deepend of research hyperfocus again lol, need to GO TO SLEEP
  • ANYWHO
  • Mainly did
    • Usual wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
  • Also:
    • Brought up the fact that more work on odrive would be a HUGE boost to our, and others (such as James Brunton and Skyentific ) robotics work (also the goofy prospect of a d3d with odrive motors (or even better an hbot style printer) )
  • Talked a lot on makerspaces with people on discord
  • Someone made a discord server attempting to be the "hub" of everything open source (brand new, but could develop into something nice)
  • One person on the precious plastic discord is in puerto rico, so same area + weather for the most part etc (also similar time zones)
    • Need to dm/video talk with them
    • Could use Resilient Buildings more than north florida with how they get the direct path of a pile of hurricanes (and their eye walls...)
  • Also thought of the idea of Open Source Low Tech working on some of the Sanitation Construction Sets Stuff (i made that forever ago so will need some serious cleaning up lol)
  • Posted down some earlier research on more gassification tech
  • ALSO a youtube channel i am following is making probably the best non industrial (ie atmospheric-ish pressure) Biogas Upgrader
  • Outside of that pile of networking, and some link spam i didn't do TOO much today
  • Guessing 5hrs?

8/8/2020

  • I finally got my first "real job" !
    • SO it's at walmart, so i saw a intresting sorting + roller conveyor setup
    • Also will have money in a few weeks to 1-3 months to burn on prototyping, projects, and the local makerspace work, so that will be nice; finally some hands on work lol
  • ANYWHO
  • I didn't do TOO much today, but:
  • Mainly did
    • Usual wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
  • Also:
    • Watched a review of the Prusa Mini seems to be what it seemed it would be from the previews:
      • Cheap so accessable
      • Beter UX via screen
      • Some error due to cantilever design
      • Early Stage Bugs/Needed Optimization (Prusa MK3 had this too, took a few months to a year, but then was fully solved
  • Also added some more info on those robotic arm desigs
  • I need to dig more, some more just popped up in my youtube feed
  • I THINK skyentific's is the best as it has full on odrive, so all the nice features servos give you. Using a better plastic than ABS may make gears and structual strength better?
  • Also i don't think that design is 100% done/video-ed (i think the end effector perhaps?)
    • Also they are odd on publishing in github? need to double check tomorrow-ish
  • Wrote down my ideas for a 3D Pen made from the same componets as a 3D Printer
    • MAY be too bulky, need to plot all that out
    • BUT this would come with it being MUCH higher quality (most have odd extruders, and have awkward controls (only set numbers, or buttons lead to fatiuge etc)
    • Putting most of the electronics (and maybe even use a bowden extruder setup?) in a "solder station" like setup may counteract the bulkyness issue
  • Guessing 3 hrs

8/3/2020

  • Mainly did
    • Usual wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
  • Also:
  • Trying FreeCAD again, got past the sketching/extruding etc
  • Main issues are the oddly low fps (granted not sure if this is normal for cad?), along with this happening with low hardware utilization (little cpu, barely any gpu, decent ram use (may just be from chrome lol) ) , and the occasional "dropped frame"
  • I tried re-installing to the latest stable version, didn't help
  • May try getting a live-usb linux going (if that can help due to windows being an afterthought perhaps?)
  • I do want to get cad going for the:
    • Stackable 3D Printer Frame (for a 3x3 or 5x5 print farm in eventual makerspace plots
    • Quadrocycle Designs
    • Kayak Modules (easiest as it is essentially an extruded block (unless i get into complex joinery and/or hull design)
    • Also want to play around with a D3D Beltprinter
    • Also could work on mold design for Precious Plastic
  • Essentially I NEED TO GET CAD GOING lol
  • Odd bit of communication gap recently
  • I'll watch those last two meetings (may have been a third in there?) in marcin's channel tomorrow or so
  • Somehow went on another wikipedia binge, and was looking for info on carbon sequestration via essentially reverse coal mining (ie putting elemental carbon (ie washed charcoal or carbon black, or some slurry) back into non-soil geological deposits. All ccs seems to be on chemical, biomass in soil/circulation, or gas storage, then fell on that odd group, not sure on their stance, but their criticism is mostly valid, short of biochar doing NOTHING, and how they ignore decentralized solutions? hard to tell, and need to ask people who actually know these areas of research.
  • ANYWHO
  • I think that's about it? I'll put down 7 hr i guess

7/31/2020

  • Do we have a meeting today?


7/30/2020

  • Got up earlier to watch the launch of the Mars 2020 rover. (Can't wait for the results once it lands in ~7 months)
    • So i may do more work today due to more time
  • Between the Crew Dragon Launch, The Mars 2020 rover launch, and the release of spaceship2 internals, lots of aerospace stuff to geek out on so that was fun
  • Also "ColinFurze" did a video on a wood gassifier driven lawnmower, so lots of hype on syngas (also re looked up all power labs, and found another group (will document tomorrow)
  • ANYWHO
  • I AM LOGGIN OFF FOR THE DAY; i'll be back in 6-12 hrs
  • Mainly did
    • Usual wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
  • More makerspace plotting
    • Looked into that cleared out area, wasn't listed online, and the county zoning map was odd, GRANTED i don't need to get ahead of myself:
      • Will probably just start with FDM Printer and possibly a co2 laser cutter
      • Then use those to make a [[MPCNC], make a FarmBot based community garden, and possibly a small shed
      • THEN if all that goes well in 2 years+ then propose full on makerspace dedicated building in that plot
    • I definetly see demand for a toolshare, need to figure out if there is an app/software for all that data (short of a google sheets)
    • Still lost on fume scrubbing
      • That one OS wet scrubber-electrostatic precipitator SHPULD be fine (especially with a carbon stage after that
      • Not sure on what sluge would be produced, but would probably need some hazardous waste handling and disposal
        • But i feel being able to lasercut plastics etc makes this system almost a necesity
    • Also need to re-look at that concept of a standardized vacuum forming rig (like that heavily advertized overpriced one (ie integrated sheet heater, press, and block, not just a block and shopvac)
  • FINALLY Many people are joining in from the discord so their accounts need made/approved
  • I think that's about it? I'll put down 7 hr i guess.

7/29/2020

  • I AM LOGGIN OFF FOR THE DAY; i'll be back in 6-12 hrs
  • Mainly did
    • Usual wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
  • More makerspace plotting
  • Tried Finding Out if Mask-Ablation Laser PCB making could be done on a co2 laser, SEEMS it can be?
  • With that being the case, a single laser cutter, and 3d printer seem to be good starting machines
  • Also considering who could be potential sponsors
    • Nearby "Home Depot" would have a intrest in the increased materials out (ie plywood, etc) and could potentially sell some makerspace made products/services
    • Others may donate money for good press (ie banks etc)
  • To-Do
  • Need to look into "Toolsharing"
  • Look into exhaust gass scrubbing for lasercutting EVERYTHING (pvc, and some materials make nasty gasses, Activated carbon and/or wet scrubber with centralized disposal?)
    • Would probably use the same system for a spray booth
  • ALSO need to get a view of the interior of that "community room" to see usable space (pre oH LeTs HaVe 50 InDustRial MachInes in HerE)
  • Also need to see what the orange park one (some nearby one has some stuff) does/has
  • Need to formalize BOM/Request List (Lasercutter, and FDM Printer are two "main things", the real killer will be materials, small tools, organization, and ppe)
  • Was looking on the sattalite view, and there is a rather large, cleared, yet undeveloped area? (need to see what the deal is on that)
  • Also get more concrete measurements on the "yard space" around ie can a Farmbot be placed somewhere, perhaps a small shed/tent, or even put aexpandable tent out when "in use" ?
  • Do more research into using copper sulphate electrolysis for etching (found one yt video on it, look for papers etc)
  • FINALLY Many people are joining in from the discord so their accounts need made/approved
  • I think that's about it? I'll put down 6 hr i guess.
  • THAT'S ABOUT IT
  • Guessing on hours, maybe ~4?

7/28/2020

  • I AM LOGGIN OFF FOR THE DAY; i'll be back in 6-12 hrs
  • Mainly did
    • Usual wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
  • Also:
    • Still working on business plan
      • Saw something on wind turbines (think i was discussing on discord about Open Source Lowtech ), and some boats (often the more expensive cats or huge monohulls, as OTS wind turbines ain't cheap) have HAWTs for topping off batteries, a simple wind turbine may be a good product? Marine grade is always a challenge, but could be a good market
      • Custom Lasercut Models, Wood Parts, Balsa Wood Gliders, Puzzles, Bubblegrams, and Custom Laser Engraving, make a good case for a lasercutter, or at least a good laser diode, so i was looking into that
      • Also thinking of using the library-makerspace (potential) collaboration as a "community hub" ie host all sorts of local things
        • May have been a farmers market around, forget where that happened
      • Also the library is very close to a "Home Depot" so with the right hand-shaking etc may be able to sell 3D Printed Drill Jigs etc there
      • PC Repair/Building/Upgrading etc may be a good service. I have essential tremor, so precise movement of small parts doesn't sit well with me, that and my level of experience. Need to dig and see if any local people are good at that
      • I have plastic recycling ALMOST fully planned out, also integrating beach cleanup, as florida has...a lot of that.
      • Still kind of all over the place, but trying to get some deliverables done
      • FINALLY Many people are joining in from the discord so their accounts need made/approved
  • Guessing on hours, maybe ~7?

7/27/2020

  • I AM LOGGIN OFF FOR THE DAY; i'll be back in 6-12 hrs
  • Mainly did
    • Usual wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
  • Had a power outage right as things were getting going, then the caffeine crash hit, so not much done today
  • Looked into if vacuum seal film could be reycled:
    • Most are multi material and/or layer so no
    • Mettalized Film of a single plastic MAY be do-able needs more research
  • Also some people on the PP wiki want to figure out how to recycle agricultural HDPE films etc
  • Power outage also had me thinking of how much usable power you could get out of a pedal->dc generator. The crank radio works, but not very ergonomic. A dedicated device with pedals, and a dc out could use a larger motor, and be a seperate device. Granted i don't need more projects...
  • I think that's about it? I'll put down 1 hr i guess.

7/26/2020

  • I AM LOGGIN OFF FOR THE DAY; i'll be back in 6-12 hrs
  • Mainly did
    • Usual wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
  • AND some work on:
  • Networking with a group that spawned out of Precious Plastic, essentially solving the same problems we encountered with the shredder. Need to work together tto reduce Redundancy Waste
  • Tried some freecad, was having the screen "pulse" every 5 secconds or so, similar to "skipping frames" in games. Made it almost unusable
  • SO then i went down the troubleshooting rabbit hole:
    • First tried letting my laptop cool down, and reducing backround programs (closed down discord and slack etc)
    • Then i tried the good ol' "dId YoU TrY tUrNing It OfF thEn BaCK oN aGain? "
    • That didn't work so then i checked my nvidia drivers (may need to double checck other drivers etc tomorrow)
    • THAT didn't work either so i was wondering if the display cable in my laptop was becoming frayed so i dissasembled my whole laptop and the cord seemed fine (hard to tell through shroud, and i didn't break down the screen + backplate for that clamshell-half itself
      • This did let me de-dust all the insides, so probably better thermals, also found all the SSD slots, etc (more places to burn money...)
    • Altogether not certain, will try more drivers/updates tomorrow see if that helps me
  • That is about it between that and around the house work, i didn't get too much done
  • Guessing 4 hrs?

7/25/2020

  • I AM LOGGIN OFF FOR THE DAY; i'll be back in 6-12 hrs
  • Getting back into a regular workflow
  • Mainly did
    • Usual wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
  • AND some work on:
  • I was looking into "on demand printing services" as a funding/income source for makerspaces etc
    • Supposedly with printers becoming common and cheaper, this is less profitable than it was?
    • Need to read up on it more
    • Either way actual products were supposedly more reccomended; You control what is done, and will have all the settings "down" and whatnot
      • Thinking 3d printed kayak (if that turned out well, i forgot the video's results, granted i've done a PILE of work on boats so i MAY (im no expert lol) know more on epoxies etc) could be a good source, as the OTS fishing kayaks are popular but 500USD+ i think (need to see if that is more so mold cost, not kg of plastic etc
      • Also odd fishing lures from 3d printed molds sold well for some youtube channel
      • Also those "stabalized cup holders"
      • Misc "Problem Solvers"
      • Art/Cosplay Stuff
      • etc i need to research all this and get specific cad then plot out pricing
  • I feel like everyday on the Precious Plastic Discord, someone asks about:
    • FDM Filament Making (often asking about OTS non-os designs
    • PET Recycling
  • SO these are definetly in demand at least
  • If i move along in the quadrocycle project that will most likely involve cad, so again I NEED TO SIT DOWN AND LEARN FREECAD
  • Rambling a bit, but mainly just trying to make a sustainable business model, and plan out local makerspace
  • That's about it, a bit off and on, so guessing 6hrs?

7/15/2020

  • Got most of my goals done
  • Adhesives, and some preservation agents are all in depth organic chem and that's WAY above my level
  • Have most of the ideas together for the quadrocycle. Need to see if the gearboxes etc can be printed from nylon or something instead of using OTS car parts, or some junkyard stuff, can be done if need be, but fdm would be cheap
  • Hydraulic was intresting. I want a cvt pump based system with a accumulator now!
  • Also tires are confusing, but probably whatever the local stores have
  • Need to get into in depth pre-cad and/or cad, and also see what frame materials can work (cheapest and/or lightest)
  • ANYWHO That's about it
  • Usual 6/7 hrs idk
  • Also we do have a meeting on friday right, slack had no message last week (i think idk)?

7/15/2020

  • Negative on covid luckily
  • Got it a week or so (steam sale) but that eco game had a reduced price. Pretty good, mostly server multiplayer based it seems which was odd
  • Did very random work yesterday on engineered wood and Building Stuff
  • Did plotting today on recycling collection (at least plastic) as a service for makerspaces/community centers (could help precious plastic, and is valuable as many buwsinesses have dumpster only etc)
  • Also was looking into people powered vehicles a bit
  • Tomorrow want to look into
    • More in depth paper/wood workflows
    • Specifically What Pollutants Can Be Treated With What
    • Wood preserving agents, and binding agents
    • Finish Recycling Plotting
    • More in depth human powered vehicle stuff
    • Look into if human powered hydraulic systems are possible/reasonable
    • Laser Engraving of Cardboard/Wood for ink/paperless marking of boxes for products
  • ANYWHO That's about it
  • Usual 6/7 hrs idk

7/9/2020

  • Got tested for covid a day or two ago, results in a few days (family memeber got contacted, and is positive, luckily (for them not others getting it passed on unknowingly...) they are asymptomatic
    • Gotta love Florida's Response
      • Opening = Another wave (if wave 1 ever ended) of sickness whoda thunk it; if only there was some health related department to advise us on such matters
  • ANYWHO
  • Today i did that video edit
    • Streamed it
    • Internet was shit as usual, and also pc was doing:
      • Blender
      • Huge File Transfers
      • OBS
      • Discord + Slack
      • Google Chrome
    • So it was kinda overloaded lol
    • SO check that out on EDVT
    • Did basic marker making + cropping + audio balancing (may be wrong words)
    • Got to color grading did like 2 sections, but was burned out
    • May continue tomorrow etc, but am hearing flail mowers in my dreams so may need a new video lol
  • That's about it and it's late + burned out due to work + general news getting me down so logging off for the day
  • Unsure on hours, mainly just editing time + waiting for video to bake/render (a few hours lol) and now for uploading (may run it overnight?)

6/23/2020

  • WHEL, I AM LOGGIN OFF FOR THE DAY; i'll be back in 6-12 hrs
  • Mainly did
    • Usual wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
  • AND some work on:
  • Tried to reload the .blend file for the tree edit
    • Would open then close beldner imediately
    • Made a test to see if save was broken and did the same thing
    • Also the yt test video did the same thing
    • My laptop's hdd is fine (?) as no other data was lost
    • Probably user error, but i will most likely need to re-do that 3 or so hours of work lol
  • Some more work on Activated Carbon can get snakeoil-ey at times but is definetly intresting
  • All this emmisions control stuff i'm plotting seems to end up with evaporation pond powder
    • Thinking some sort of waste RTO may be needed?
      • Was planning a rto but fluidized bed for poweder OR gas
  • Also did some plotting and contacts on local makerspace planning
  • OpenDog released another video and is getting VERy polished
  • ANYWHO That's about it
  • Usual 6/7 hrs idk

6/22/2020

  • WHEL, I AM LOGGIN OFF FOR THE DAY; i'll be back in 6-12 hrs
  • Mainly did
    • Usual wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
  • AND some work on:
    • YT Channel Plots
    • More Blender Work + YT Side Testing
    • More Plotting On Activated Carbon
      • Thermal + a RTO seems reasonable
      • Water+Ozone is intresting, yet liquid waste may be challenging perhaps carbon->liquid->evaporation pond->Incinerator/pyrolyser/rto?
    • I Think A D3D Toolchanger, Many Toolheads and a M3DP 1-10 hp motor should be our "deliverables"
    • That and more Social Media Prescence
    • Tomorrow i wil ltry and finish + upload the tree plantout edit, and also do some local networking
  • ANYWHO That's about it
  • Usual 6/7 hrs idk

6/21/2020

  • WHEL, I AM LOGGIN OFF FOR THE DAY; i'll be back in 6-12 hrs
  • Had a covid scare, siblings and parents BOTH had infected workspaces (to the suprise of EVERYONE except health officials ~~who didn't want florida to open up~~ )
  • Seem to be good for now, so no quarentine
  • ANYWHO
  • Mainly did
    • Usual wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
  • AND some work on:
  • Got familiar again with Blender NLVE-ing so am good to go on that, just need new content / be pointed to specific needs of old content re-processing
  • Need to knows:
    • Old Content/New Content
    • Are Jumpcuts Alright with everyone?
  • OSE Youtube Plotting documentation here, and made a discord channel on this + the podcast
  • I want a good mic setup (xlr interface + condenser, etc...) pre doing that, so a no on that, but even smartphones (short of lenses/scratches+data managment) can make GREAT video, so i am good to go on that
  • ALSO
  • Dived into the "ultimate" engine/generator
  • Essentially UBI with ALL the heat recovery:
  • So that's that thought i've been fermenting on
  • ALSO
  • Was plotting Carbon Scrubbers that can be "regenerated" with no swapping, may need a wet scrubber/gas storage because it would "dump" all the stuff it captured out
    • For smells diluted outside disposal/biofilters could work too
  • Did some plotting on aesthetics of the OBI houses, especially post cabin (ie apartment complex etc)
  • Need to make a page on tool aesthetics later
  • Guessing on hours, was mre sporatic today 66, but may be less
  • I'll leave it at that

6/12/2020

  • Today is chaotic
  • Started out learning/teaching logic gates, code, and arduino to me and a younger sibling over breakfast
  • Minecraft Code -> Minecraft Command Blocks -> Chicken Spawner Button -> added ocillator "clock", add AND gate for a switch, add a pulse delay etc...
    • Then did the good ol blink/pwm/make hz of audio arduino program
    • Still have like no componets
      • Made a sketchy pin->aligator clip->snap circuits mess (did work though, and i LOVE the concept of snap circuits (wanna os it though...) )
  • SO I am diving into code for realsies now, and hopefully can be capable in 1-3 months idk
  • Still need to learn non-autodesk cad (i was spoiled in school with "free liscenses"), an in person class may be more modivating idk
  • Was going to do networking, relitives showed up, and did the ol catch up from long lost friends/rellies navy brat routune (was good to catch up ! )
  • Then did the dev meeting
  • Then did a little discord stuff, seems to be calm rn? ~00:50UTC?
  • Did more improvements of my "about me page"
  • Now on to the "real stuff" post diner
  • Am behind on sleep and REALLY tired, so may just crash post food and move on to tomorrow

6/11/2020

  • Starting to get sloppy due to sleepyness, so time to go (12:40 lol; adhd is one hell of a drug)
  • ANYWHO slept in VERY late, and took care of a younger sibling for the day so barely any work
  • Mainly did
    • Usual wiki work
    • Usual SMM work
  • AND some work on:
    • OSE Book Publishing
    • Nonsensical Psudo-Philosophy of Mine
    • Goofy Idea/Project - Brainstorming/Documentation
  • And i'll leave it at that (~4 hrs?)

6/10/2020

  • WHEL, I AM LOGGIN OFF FOR THE DAY; i'll be back in 6-12 hrs
  • Reaching macro limit of my default keayboar (it can't handle the sheer efficiency + POWER lol) so need to learn Autohotkey
  • Usual wiki work
  • Usual SMM work
  • ALSO Hyping up:
    • DIY Motors Gearboxes
    • "OS Accesability/Translator/Meme Speak+Dialect/creole Decoder for ANYTHING" (ie fill in + dev all of this (will do tomorrowish) )
      • A HUGE and NEEDED deliverable
      • It is almost essential for international + multi age/ability group people (ie me being a dumb millenial vs "country hick" vs old hoh person, etc)
      • Also most tools are expensive or not floss
      • Also can include macros, no slur bots, and even word to wikipedia/reddit page/ose wiki page bots etc...
      • AWESOME project IMO but as usual need to herd ~~cats~~ devs around
      • I am trying to lol (and i heard my cat oliver irl well...)
  • ANYWHO That's about it
  • Usual 6/7 hrs idk

6/9/2020

  • So i did mainly a PILE of networking/smm on discord etc
    • And judging by the influx of new devs' it's working?
  • That is the main thing
  • Nexus Space goofyness (was plotting using asteroids for mars strip mine blasting ~~That or fusion only acellorator based nukes~~ )
  • I started the "OS Memes" bit, kinda dumb, but lowkey (good?) propaganda for OS Philosophy
  • That's about it
  • Did a tad more than usual so guestimated 7hrs

6/8/2020

  • Guess i'll log off for the day
  • Getting back into a good rhythm
  • Usual Pile of networking (mainly on wate oil burner, pyrolysis kiln, and on a powderized charcoal burner today)
  • Usual discord lurking/managment/networking
  • STARTED diving into PET workflows (could benefit others, but PET MUST be dry to be used)
    • I think this would be huge for OSE and PP as botttles are VERY common, yet currently unusable (short of pyrolysis, or making 3cm+ wide rope
  • Guess that's about it
  • Unsure on hours, guess i'll put it at 6 idk

5/31/2020

  • Some personal issues are arising, may cause a bit of a gap, hard to tell
  • Anyhow ususal networking / page linking
  • CNC Mill + CNC Etchant Plot/Spray-> Rinse -> PNP -> circuit out seems like a good workflow, need to link pages around next time i dev
  • More people joining the discord, will need managment + role creation etc
  • Possible pyrolysis sme
  • Nexus space is exploding
  • That's about it, heading off to bed, should be back in 12-72-ish hrs most likely very up in the air for the next week or so

5/30/2020

  • Got to philisopical / political, gotta fix that lol
  • ANYWHO back to work for me
  • USE THE DISCORD/SLACK/EMAIL PLEASE AAAAA
  • ANYWHO
  • Going to do more diesel engine gearhead-ery + nexus space stuff (mainly biopetchem) + networking/customer service
  • THINKIN TO DAMN MUCH RECENTLY AAAAAA
    • Whoda thunk it (pissed off people readin my shit)
    • Have a personal mess developing, may interfere of majorly boost my efforts lol (will tell more as it develops, preview:it's a complex clusterfuck of emotions, people, and m o n e y
  • So sorry if i've been erratic, unstable, nsfw, brutally honest, or ranting more than usual (can vent somewhere if y'all are intrested)
  • ANYWHO think new main "focuses" are:
  • Diesle/Cars etc as a NEEDED deliverable
  • Need for more pr
  • Concerns on us going the way of others and becoming corrupt / sketchy (thinkin long term like 20-100yrs post us, existrntial pie in the sky stuff, that IS needed though as Collapse Happens Slowly
  • plus other shitposts etc
  • may start the OSE-Podcast if intrested? not 100% "good" rn so may be dumb, but also i am thinking/ranting might as well "get it down on paper" before loosing it lol
  • ANYWHO (a book idea on that btw...) that's about it for today
  • SHould be 6hrs to 3 days until "first contact" depending on my end
  • TLDR is shit is hittin the fan, but i feel kind of ok/good
    • is this what closure/normal feels like lol
      • Been upside down so long i find right side up bad (and am now great at metaphors idk lol?)
  • "goodluck and godspeed" lol (watched history today, the new apollo 11 b roll / talking points / quotes imo with this new launch
    • over optimistic, young dumb:
      • f u l l y a u t o m a t e d - l u x u r y - q u e e r - a n a r c h o s p a c e c o m m u n i s m
    • here we come lol, gnight!

5/29/2020

  • Alrighty, signing off for the day, i'll be back in ~8-12 hours or so (been waking up oddly early, and sleeping bad recently (lost a day in a sleep shedual and payed the consequences lol)
    • Didn't get as much done today as i hoped
  • Just had some personal stuff, so should be good tomorrow etc
  • DID do even more networkign
  • One of the discords is EXPLODING, and thus some people may trickle in? either way can probably co-develop / fork their designs (they are more...grid scale, more info later)
  • Some people may still join (read the email and/or discord and/or slack marcin please)
  • Mainly did off wiki plots on biopetrochem in gdocs (let me see if i can share them in ssettings after this, do read em have some legit chemical engineers on the team!
  • Also just misc wiki work, helpin marcin with tedious aspects of pages + subtle changes to appease my snobbery
  • ALSO was plotting checking if my local library has a 3d printer etc (now that they are re-opening (albeit slightyl too soon imo, florida man infects...) ) and help them set up a makerspace/better one if no, as often organization, not funds is key
  • Hsould be productive with more sleep (also may be starting to reach my "stretch limit" (a little TOO much networking lol)
  • ANYWHO
  • I'll end on that

5/28/2020

  • Alrighty, signing off for the day, i'll be back in ~8-12 hours or so (been waking up oddly early recently)
  • Didn't get as much done today as i hoped
  • Just had some personal stuff, so should be good tomorrow etc
  • DID do even more networkign
  • One of the discords is EXPLODING, and thus some people may trickle in? either way can probably co-develop / fork their designs (they are more...grid scale, more info later)
  • I also need to make the OSE one better, now that more people may join
  • Mainly bot choice + role creation etc
  • Started wanting to do more OS Diesel Engine + Bio-Petro Chem stuff, got sidetracked
  • Glad the knitic is starting up again! useful stuff
    • MAY be able to use a bottle to coarse thread/rope workflow, look into this
  • Got someone who was intrested in the pyrolysis kiln from PP Discord, contacting me, they may dev, or at least use it?
  • Also did more formal plotting on an OS weather station (has been in my head for a while, hence the speed lol) sensors seem to be the big unknown, sort of, many are OTS, just need modular pcb "stacks" to be [[OSE Spec ?
  • Hard to tell, but we seem to be getting on the same page/in a grove? who knows
  • MAY have saved enough for a prusa kit (max, or something cheaper idk) so that may be more clear in next week or so decision wise, may just be pushed another month etc
  • ANYWHO
  • I'll end on that

5/27/2020

  • Alrighty, signing off for the day, i'll be back in ~8-12 hours or so (been waking up oddly early recently)
  • launch was canceled, so all hype no launch today, 3 days till next window
  • Did more diesel/engine plots
  • We really should rename that page IMO (would need a good 15-30 min of link/name/doc name changing, but is do-able, even for all me
  • Then did a PILE of networking
    • Joined ANOTHER discord channel lol
  • Need to write em up on OSE later
  • Got better/messed around in OnShape more, i am not the expert, but think it is Probably better than FreeCAD
    • Only hold-up is cloud dependancy
    • Should? be fixable via OS(-ish) forking to pc or personal server, if even needed?
  • Also did misc stuff related to the discord, similar to what User:Marcin may do with small video conference related stuff, that seems random "outside of the loop"
  • IE 'USE THE DISCORD and slack (ish), and ...
  • Also a PILE of Sme's and existing marketing/networking in one discrod, may be of use
  • ANYWHO, that's about it
  • Added an extra hour or so to the guestimate of usual due to waking up earlier, so 7hrs or so

5/26/2020

  • Alrighty, signing off for the day, i'll be back in ~9-12 hours or so
  • I live in jacksonville fl, so if the spacex launch DOES happen tomorrow (weather is questionable, entering Florida's wet season) i will see that from where i am or a short drive south
  • ANYWHO
  • I did my usual discord lurking, may add more info about some of that tomorrow on to this wiki
  • Also did some more fuel + diesel engine plotting
    • Thinking up my diesel concept, may be more complex than the current plan for the simple diesel, need to plan more
  • Also plotted a bit on the Advanced Powercube Construction Set
    • Getting the diesel engine, and tanks of all the fluids to fit in this system would be optimal
      • Although bulky is always earier, especially for the first fully "in house" build
    • Also need to finalize the "standards" i think 25 cm cube external would be good, but need more opinions
  • That's about it

5/18/2020

  • Gettin late ~00:15 local time...technically the 19th locally... so i'm about to sign off and go to bed
  • ANWHO
  • Didn't get around to meshroom today, supposedly meshroom uses a differemt tracker "CCT Tracker"
    • Should be fine in a stationary, non moving setup like 3d scanning, and not ar/vr/mr etc
  • Did a PILE of networking on discord, and on youtube/email
    • The pyrolysis person wrote back and was suprisingly anti-open source, and nationalist? Was odd, but they may reconsider. Also they had a paywall on cad so go-figure?
  • Did a little more work on that
  • Found a bottle peeler for someone on the PP Discord and made a page
    • No 3d printable version, should be quick for someone good with freecad, essentially similar to a pencil sharpener, or vegtable peeler
  • Found out about a CHEAP printer, may legit buy, as a deal for 120USD was suppoosedly a thing! Need to check burnable money
  • Still haven't got stuff for the arduino, doing some networking
  • Came up with the idea for the raspberry pi server on a discord. I'm still insure about it. I am an overbuilding, young, dumb person, but it seems odd to do FLOPS, and intense fast stuff on simple SBC's. Granted the software protocols may make up for this, also rpi 4 is quite capable! Either way it's a good low cost option, and is VERY modular, and could be even more so with FPGA's
  • Found out about the ant thing, i personally hate roe on sushi, not rich enough/intrested enough to eat caviar, but did eat ants on some mountain while camping that some local said were good (were oddly sweet do to beries, odd to eat though had to pre-squish kill, long story). Dad had an ant farm as a kid, hipster market so may be a cashcow, just a thought train i had and wrote down (like 2/3 of my stuff lol)
  • I seem to be getting in a rhythm and getting a good workflow
  • Good at stock macros, semi-accurately touch typing, discord fully networked, desk all proper, productivity seems to be going up
    • Now i just need to learn (more)code and freecad...
  • I guess i'll leave it at that
  • Also we need to get better about Orpan Pages and unclear page purposes, i try to help, but i am not the original page creator anbd thus feel i may "mess up" the basics section
  • Also USE THE SLACK / DISCORD P l e a s e
    • Checking in in real time removes confusion, and makes work more productive, most companies/dev teams do this for workdays perhaps we should to (granted no timezone role yet, so unsure on what "day" is for the most people. I think most people active on this are in the americas/carribean? Need a poll/role list to really know
  • Unsure on hours, as much of it was networking, so i guess i will do the usual 6?
  • I'll leave it at that

5/17/2020

  • So i'm about to sign out for the day ~11:00 pm / 23:00 local time (EST), 3:12 utc (technically tomorrow too!)

also grabbed some research papers/videos

  • I also posted about this on the PP discord for use/development help
    • Would be useful for non-recyclables (thermosets), and hard to recycle plastics (PET), also tires/biomass could supplement
    • Could be sold as fuel etc making a good enterprise oppertunity, especially if fuel infrastructure in the local area is sparse
  • I also made a "pyrolysis oil" playlist on my youtube:
  • Outside of side projects, that was about it.
  • Also really starting to get a workflow that works well for me (schedualing + macros)
  • Am trying to learn to touch-type (i currently do some hellish combo of two finger pecking and touch-typing) so may gain speed
  • Also learning more on how my pc does it's macros stock
    • May delve into Autohotkey once i master the stock system
  • Side Projects:
    • Photogrammetry: Made printable trackers, may use tomorrow, if i can get a camera/lighting workflow together, don't have external flash, just spare static lights + windows, will see (also learning a lot on the photogrammetry discord)
    • WLED plotting about this, need money to burn on digital led strip and ESP32 stuff... (the discord is very active)
    • I found an old arduino (from a science fair that ended up not needing it years ago, lost it in storage, long story...) so may start up with that
      • I have no pin-wires, or sheilds/breadbords, so may do an amazon buy, looked into that today a bit
    • I think i will do the typical "hello world" and blink/pwm dim an led programs before a more "permanant" project
      • Still debating what that will be, for my favorite uses ESP32 seems better than my low capability Arduino Uno (stock ie no wifi) so unless i suddenly can make a CNC, it will most likely become a IOT button with a cheap wifi sheild, and a " "big red button" + speaker/light " module + case
        • No 3dp or welder...yet so would have to be wood, or an electric outlet box (outdoor ones) for a case
  • Alrighty, singing off

5/16/2020

  • Signing off for the day
  • Did mainly geek-ing out on various gearhead-ery with all the diesel engine stuff marcin was plotting
  • Also did my usual lurking on various social medias and found some intresting stuff i posted
  • Also was talking with some anti-vax person on the pp-discord, during a pandemic, that was...something
  • Anyhow i need to print those markers out and have another run at Meshroom my first run a day or so ago didn't produce anything usable, so i'll need to do some fiddling around (and probably ask for help/find a youtube tutorial for the settings etc)
  • Also will check out that other os-cad

5/6/2020

  • All over the place as usual
  • I joined a ton of related discords, so lots of NETWORKING
  • I think the main "thing" today will be me putting my pc to work on learning photogrammetry stuff

4/20/2020

  • Goodness i'm bad at these
  • I don't know about hours, as i chaotically jump back and forth between constructive stuff, and fun nonscence, and sleep hygine MAY not be exactly great (adhd is one HELL of a drug...)
    • ANYWHO i'm going to estimate ~5hrs? Can be changed later if need be\
  • Now for the details of what i've been doing:
    • Typical Page Organization, Link Fixing etc
    • Some human web-crawling, finding relevant stuff, various ideas etc
