  1. I got a Hololens from work for a mini project.

    • @adiwan [> No sane person buys a Hololens for oneself. <]

      HAH ! Knew it ! I know someone who owes me a party favour now...

      Well I guess that solves all of my questions.

    • @drinkingpony Haha. How comes? I only know someone I studied with and was super enthusiastic about the Hololens and bought it for himself for playing around (as in programming with it). I'd say he was a sane guy and quite intelligent so I think that was a purchase with more promise for the future. As for non-programmers it'd be definitely insane.

    • @adiwan Well he is a programmer alright, but also a minecraft nut.

      I just checked and there is actually some dust on his Hololens, cus he has it on display in his bookcase.

      Then again he also has various occulus things and pretty much spends his time with all out of the box thingies.

  2. No wonder my stepper motors were super hot. The voltage reference was out of whack. They were about 1.3V instead of 0.84V.

    • I'm soooo glad I made the 3d printer board upgrade with better stepper drivers. It is so silent now that the fans are making the greatest noise. I'm so mad that I didn't do much earlier. To be honest the "ideal" board was recently released that fits into the existing enclosure and I got that. So my anger is very much no deal. I just could have had a significantly better sleep on some prints. A few times the motor noises made it hard to get to sleep and the printer and me were separated by two doors.

        • @scribus You said it, stereopticon... stereoptics... it certainly is how 3D works. Everything you said is correct.

          But you still do not see in 3D. You see in stereoptics, or whatever fancy name you want to give it.

        • @drinkingpony OK... When you pay extra to see Avatar or TRON Legacy with the fancy glasses in a theater, what is it called?

        • @scribus stereoscopy ? Whatever it is called, there is still a movie being projected onto a screen, the screen is flat. But when you look at that with them "3D glasses" the illusion of 3D was made.

          So at that point it becomes more marketing friendly to say "3D movie" than to say "stereooptic movie that allows for the illusion that things are not just projected onto a screen but seemingly come out of it"

          I mean. Did you think that that one Shrek ride at universal studio would have been nearly as famous if it advertised with "stereoptic movie that feels like things are crawling out of the screen but we are also going to splash some water in your face so people think they are really there" instead of 4D ?

          Marketing terms man, they are the bane of my existance. 4K for instance, or UHD. What is that ? Is it 4096 x 2160 ? or 3996 X 2160 ? or 4096 x 1716 ? Or hell, is it what apple said it was and is it 4096 x 2304 ? Or just WQUXGA wrapped in a marketing term ?

          • Somebody emailed me a petition today make 9/11 into a federal holiday, and like, I’m all for another excuse to be making holiday overtime, but like, as of today you have this situation where you have legal adults who were not yet born when 9/11 happened. I don’t even remember it, I was 4 when it happened. A lot of us have kids of our own now, and it’s likely that they won’t even be taught about 9/11 in history classes like I was, except as a precursory event to a larger Middle East conflict that dominated Bush’s second term. If you lost loved ones or lived in New York or DC, or worked for the government at the time, then yeah. Mourn. Memorialize. Do whatever you gotta do. But everyone else moved on. It doesn’t need to be a federal holiday.

          • Very rough social media idea. Twitter, etc are all about being heard, making noise, but where is the site for listening?? I propose, IHearYou.net (or whatever). Anonymous, no comments allowed, you don't know a follow count, you just see reactions, from "I read this and heard you" to "Same." Buttons only show up after X time based on word count so you can't like-bomb. Maybe N free posts, and outside that you need to read to earn more posts? Not even half baked, hell it's little more than an ingredient list, but something about the national discourse has got to change, man!

Some start at "press start" and clock through the intro and setup, and I saw one that was from console power on! Or, I think I did, anyway. It's all been background while I fail to search for a job while I work on NESmaker, lol

                    • @mrmattimation Tangential at best, but what's your take on that fan-collective Bob's Burgers, "Brunchsquatch"? Watching for about my third time. It's fun, and I like the " official embrace" of the fandom. But some of the styles are jarring. Then again, at least one of the shifts is pretty subtle and artsy, though maybe by accident? Anyway, Dame Judi Brunch is 11/10.

                    • @scribus Never sawr it. In general fan animations of established TV shows tend to irk me because the animators working on them usually neglect the nuances of the show’s visual style (South Park fanartists, for example, stop at “crappy” animation, but they don’t realize that it’s a certain KIND of crappy). The Bob’s Burgers-Archer one was fun though, I enjoyed that one.
