  1. Whenever the word "lose" is stretched like "looooooose" does it mean "lose" or "loose"? Weird shower thoughts.

    about a day ago from web
    • @adiwan The only thing I can think of that would not be bad ( like the word 'Lose' would imply ) when loose is a timing scedule.

      Pretty much the opposite of a deadline.

      So... I guess it is pretty much always negative unless for that one in a million time it is not ?

    • @adiwan I guess you see something I do not want to see in said spammers name.

      Now I hope I can distract myself long enough with stupid nonsense so I will not dwell on it, after all you pretty much said there is something there :o

        1. 47 headphoneAmplifiercomponents installation drawing: from low to high principle, namely the first low welding components, such as resistor. Ohkay I sorta know what they mean here
        Pay attention to the polarity, can not meet the. Element name element label polarity fair enough, I know what they mean here, there is a little table here pointing out that there is a polarity for things like LED and electrolyic capacitors, and it does not matter for the Monolythic capacitors & resistors.

        But then

        Shall not be plugged into the IC 5532 direction, otherwise will burn IC 5532

        What ? ... I shall scour the internet looking for a YouTube video or something trying to explain this.

      • You ever just realize your life kind of sucks a lot and you’re slowly running out of ways to make things better? I’m having one of those moments right now.

        • @mrmattimation Yes, every day. As for running out of magic juice to make it all better, that seems to be an eternal struggle.

          That is why I occassionally have trips to either the liquor store, or Dr Liquor. No quite serious, that is her name.

          I can recommend one for starters and the other for the advanced types of 'feeling down'

            • I wonder if it is possible to desolder the reset button on the ESP32-CAM and put it in a more tactical place ( for instance, on the side of a project-box ) I hope @Adiwan knows. I have not yet ordered the thing. Might be a kind of a deal-breaker.

                      • I hate it here so much but I can’t leave. I spend money making these cartoons and I never make it back (the next one will likely be a $500+ loss). I don’t have the following to crowdfund. I’m several thousand dollars in debt so I can’t take any financial risks at all. I’m now in a degree program I don’t care about because I’ve been rejected from the art program three times in three years and I’ve spent too much time and money at college to drop out. Everything’s just kiwied right now.

                          • I'm extremely frustrated. I have to dumb down my VR training program a lot more than I already have. I'm told that people shouldn't be allowed to drop grabbed items. I mean WTF! They take out all the fun of flinging items around. Also all the dynamic things I've built in should be gone. "Only activate the items that are immediately needed at the moment of the procedure!".

                            • @oracle In industrial maintenance, dropping items and tools can cause serious setbacks. My opinion is that a user SHOULD be able to drop items, and that the dropping of the items should create a natural penalty.

                            • @adiwan I am interested in your work here because I have a lot of experience in writing technical training documentation. Mostly with an emphasis in SQF (Food safety and quality) procedures but also in the documentation of my own and my teams poorly poorly written code.

                            • @oracle The main problem is that I'm not responsible for the storyboard of the training. I'm the one who has to convert the gibberish into code. What I get is a very linear script that tells the user what to do and when the action has been done the next instruction appears. I use a giant state machine (in my current one there are about 80 states) for that purpose. Every time an action or an instruction has ended the state machine advances. The storyboard has 3 "difficulty levels" in mind in which the first level the user get all the instructions and the interaction items are highlighted. The second difficulty level is the same but without the instructions, and the 3rd is with no highlighting. In every state only the currently needed items are interactable and nothing more. My current training has also a little quiz in the second level and a thing where the user has to order the steps on a whiteboard. It's on the level of a kindergartener.
