  1. Only question I have left on my mind is whether to pack a Beamer/Projector or not. I mean the thing is pretty old and I will not miss it if it dies. BUT it is pretty useless untill it becomes dark enough outside. I could just pack a monitor I won't miss if it dies.

    What am I going to use it for ? Well Jackbox of course. As well as whatever else that can be played over HDMI with a somewhat large group of idiots.

      • @adiwan I am going to camp on those days :D

        If I was not so terrified about the possibility of people dying when they put up their tents I would be making a joke about it :D

        I also have to 'survive' there for some 11 days.

      • @drinkingpony My condolences. I'll rather stay at home, shut everything down and not sweat to death or die of a heat stroke. I just used up all my rescue blankets and decorated every window I can with its silvery reflective goodness to keep the heat outside.

      • @adiwan Condolences ? Nah this is going to be great. Unless if people actually die that is. Probably fine, I mean it worked last year.

        Though I did had the idea of iso-blankets like 3 months ago but I never actually ordered any. Too bad, I could have used like a hundred or so. Ahwell pretending to be a plant and squirt myself will have to do, especially at siesta time.

      • Modeled a dust shoe for my CNC so I can directly suck off all the dirt and dust instead of dispersing it into the environment. I have to 3d print it and find appropriate bristles. Also I'm not sure if a pressure fit and cable ties will hold it firmly enough. The existing spindle mount doesn't allow very much in that regard. http://rainbowdash.net/attachment/874955

          • @mrmattimation Recycling plastic is bad because it's a dead-end product and gives the public the illusion that using it can be consequence-free. Each time it's recycled it degrades more and more until it's useless. Recycling paper is bad because paper biodegrades pretty well and more recycling discourages tree replanting. Don't know about aluminum and glass. I thought those are okay.

          • @thismightbeauser Actually I am sure that pretty much all recycle programs are bad on the human psyche. A lot of people think "Hey I can use this and feel less guilty ( or even good ) about the environment"

          • I did some dailies in a game that is all about big stompy mechs. What I got for it was a Lanner Falcon to sit on top of my comm-terminal.

            ... Why would any mech warrior take a bird into his cockpit ? At least yesterday I got an oscilating fan as cockpit item. Now that has some uses, I mean it does not do anything for the game as far as game mechanics go, but at least it oscillates... Menacingly... Mostly when I fire too many weapons and my vision becomes blurry, too many alarms go off, and my butt gets too hot.

I will zoop you the blop out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this floobidy Earth, mark my flibbidy flop. You think you can flop away with zoobing that doobie-woobie to me over the Interzoobies? Think again, flap-flopper. As we speak I am zipping my blopping bloop of flobbidies across the boopidy and your floopidy is being flopped right now so you better poopidy for the big zoobidy flop party, son. You're jeeber zeebered, son. http://ur1.ca/awxj1

              • It is called Unstable Unicorn, it is not that hard, you start your turn, do all of your ongoing events, grab a card, play a card, end of turn.

                Please stop obsessing over my amount of unicorns, I only have 5. I need 7 to win. Stop overanalyzing what I am doing, heck I might have to sacrifice them to Cthulhu before your next turn for all you know. You have been taking like 10 minutes on this one turn. THIS IS NOT YU GI OH AND YOU ARE NOT THE PHARAOH !!! Neither is this an interactive spreadsheet on what COULD happen. ARGH, play a card already.

                - Me just a couple minutes ago while playing a cardgame

                This guy who was obsessed with the prospect of me winning did not even get to see me win.

                  My milkshake got me in trouble with the law.
                  It's better than yours, but that's no good
                  I'm coming down to your neighborhood.

                  The boys won't come to my yard,
                  Because I have a bracelet to keep me far.
                  Let's not start a big kerfuffle,
                  because I'm doing the sex offender shuffle.

                • After several encounters with my most recent enemy (electricity-eating fungi) I've decided to study the damn things and figure out how to eradicate them.

                  They're not actively harmful, but colonies form in low-current circuits, and cause devices to stop working. Phone lines and tv remotes are the two places I most often find them in, and even though I fully clean the devices, after a while the fungi shows up again.

                • It is constructed! However it is too late to power it up. My eyes are tired enough. First impression: It's cheap and it shows at every corner. Despite the "Pro" in its name it feels far from it. The front (and back) plate where the rods and screw rod for the table are attached to is made of bakelite. I expected aluminium. On the other hand it seems to be thick and sturdy. The only real bummers are the plastic spindle holder and the plastic holders for the bushings for sliding on the rods and the plastic screw rod nut holder. I'll test it tomorrow or so before my complaints get any validity. I mean I got what I paid for: A cheap CNC for cheap money. Baby's first CNC. http://rainbowdash.net/attachment/874944

                  • @adiwan I do not know what bakelite is. Nor do I know what that circuit boards looks like but I guess that is where the pro comes from ( picture please )

                    Now you might want to check before you begin if the thing is 'smart' enough to not go out of bounds and destroy itself. I did a little bit of reading on them machines.

                  • @drinkingpony Bakelite is a type of plastic. Many products were made of bakelite until modern plastics like ABS were invented. And it will destroy itself because it lacks any endstop switches but I will install some that I have laying around. The pro aspect of it is that it has support for lasers and the spindle is a bit more precise. I will test it when I come back from work.
