“So what do you think about the late winter?”
Well, It’s getting harder to deer these days. I’ve been deering for three years now and hope to keep deering for the next ten. Winter is tough deering anyway
“Thank you, deer. Back to you, April”
@Shufei @cypnk I do listen to a couple of international broadcasts, Radio Sonder Grense on 3320 kHz from South Africa, Radio Santa Cruz on 6135 kHz from Bolivia, Radio Exterior de España on 17715 kHz, and others. Since the PL880 covers the full shortwave spectrum 1711 to 29999 kHz i can pretty much tune to anything, including hams on 80m, 40m, 20m, and 10m. I also enjoy listening and dxing to far MW stations including several from Argentina.
@cypnk When I was a kid I used a leaf blower, a bucket, and some duct tape to make a hovercraft and rode it around the yard like a techno-witch.
The very fact there's a gocernment of BC official Cannabis newsletter is blowing my mind rn:
"Following a purchase from BC Cannabis Stores, you can sign-up for our newsletter to find out about new products and receive updates about the legal cannabis industry."
how all-in are they going? What possible new angle on pot does the government have? Are they investing millions to research the ultimate high?
@cypnk It’s a huge reason that ham radio has been such a fertile field for my tech education: all the old is still present and used along side the new, affording a cross pollination of ideas and techniques on the wind of pure enthusiasm.
If medium is the message, then what voices are silenced when “disruption” comes to “outmode” certain infotech? Makers, DIY, etc. know what any crafter does: the revolutionary power in making tech decisions oneself, in not succumbing to curation.
@cypnk No, the human is superpositioned and adjacent to, but parallel by measure of dominant length to the surface. You have to lay down mostly flat, otherwise you will fall and bump your noggin when sleep incurs.
@cypnk For a $Bed,
1. Instance a surface with a PleasingTexture.
2. Lay a human body perpendicular to the surface.
3. Place TeddyBear or Dolly in arms of human.
4. Cover human with PleasingTexture, weight adjusted to values of temperature and autism coefficient.
5. Induce sleep or wakeful rest in human.
Feeling about ancient electronics
Part of the appeal of old electronics is more than just nostalgia. Most of the devices I've posted here were made and sold before I was even born
A lot of them, I've never used personally
I'd argue there's an original charm to them that modern devices have not matched and, realistically as the markets dictate, will never match
That leaves the makers, the DIYers, the hackers. I can see some of that charm returning to things we make on our own
I'm OK with this
@cypnk A few houses down from me is a man who absolutely adores his leaf blower. He will run it for a couple of hours or more at a time! Does it have to be autumn? No it does not! Any time of year is blower time!
These are small houses with small yards. There cannot be enough stuff to blow around for that long. WHAT IS HE DOING? I think he's playing with it like a toy, chasing a single leaf around or something!
Oh... sorry, you got me started... *breathes, backs out of room sheepishly*
This is an Octagonal layout calculator that I used back when I had an interest in building drones:
It's actually a carpentry tool, and it's perfect for getting exact lengths of segments, including overall size and radius
I was looking for this for a while after the site moved
