  1. I had my CNC initiation: I uncontrollably plunged the toolhead into the workpiece. I forgot to reset the coordinates before starting the job.

  2. 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.

          • @mangeurdenuage One way or another F-Droid.org cannot avoid having a filtering mechanism. The line has to be drawn somewhere.
            Both for genuine trash (org.vasya.myqthelloworld) and aggressive political fringes.

            What I think is important here is that F-Droid won't include some kind of repository black-list with Rick Astley's performance. So as far as software goes, it respects the user's freedom to choose for themselves.

                @mangeurdenuage @fdroidorg This sounds reasonable to me. It doesn't demand the "one step beyond" that I have a problem with.

                      • The VR game Trover saves the Universe by Justin Roiland is, just average. The controls are sometimes infuriating. To match parity with PSVR and one-camera Oculus Rift setups it makes me furious to rotate because when I look backwards my view is blocked by a chair and the view is darkened. The combat is as uninspiring as it gets.

                              • So, I enjoyed "Stranger Things" season 3, and I think a 4 could work, or this could be a good ending. But I really, really don't want them to try to go forever. I've liked it too much so far to watch it suck for 3 years before it finally just peters out on an unfulfilling wet fart noise. And s3 was showing some of the issues with neverending longform, like more than enough moments of "Well this stupid thing only happened so the plot could exist" and forced drawn-out interpersonal drama based on comically improbable misunderstandings. Not enough to stop me, but it did pull me out of the narrative a bit. But there were far more high notes than low, and damnit they're all just so likable! I didn't feel like the 80s refernces were too forced, but a couple did drag. Overall, a solid B.
