  1. There is a clear sign that I'm getting older because tools and power tools become more interesting from day to day.

  2. I wasted about 120g of PLA plastic because I didn't measured carefully or test-printed the critical parts separately. I can use it to test sanding and spraying paint on it. So it's not completely wasted.

  3. My honest opinion is that the general public should not be instructed with ability to drive, or at the very least, the privilege should require stricter testing standards. People (humans as a whole) are not as intelligent as we perceive ourselves to be. We are stupid, dull, prideful, creatures that make terrible judgments at the expense of all others.

  4. @oracle Using and feeling comfortable with, sorry. I know a few people who feel that cruise control s dangerous and takes control away from them. I was hopeful that younger people would be more open to the idea, but many of my classmates are strongly opposed to the idea.

  5. Why was I ever optimistic about autonomous vehicles if we can't even expect people to be capable of using and feeling cruise control?

  6. I 3d printed a part for free because the filament I bought was really wonky. Although it was supposedly PLA, with a printing temperature of around 200°C, this one had a printing temperature of 240°C - 250°C. I could print with it with no guarantee that suddenly the needed printing temperature drops during the print and bubble-up the model. I returned it.

  7. @scribus I guess the image's EXIF data (that has the rotation data saved) is ignored here.

  10. @scribus Did you use an analog video signal on a HDTV? I find that the analog video processing of modern TVs introduces a ton of lag. Once I played Mega Man 2 on our HDTV and it was unplayable, original hardware NES obviously.

  11. @scribus I'm considering backing this because it could be a nice birthday or Christmas gift for a family member who likes board games.

  14. @oracle Which is why I no longer like programming for Windows, I prefer LTS style environments when publishing packaged software (for the convenience of the customer)

  15. @r00tobo Well, my Arch Linux loving friend. Not only did they do it, I would say they actually are doing it quite well.

  23. @oracle I don't have A/C either (except for the car). https://i.imgur.com/l28HtKb.png At work it's similar (also no A/C) but I don't have any thermometers there. It won't be any cooler in the next days. On Monday it'll be 35°C. I guess I'll be going earlier from work to continue sweating at home.

  24. @adiwan Oh boy, that sucks. The temps in my area have been hovering around 33, but the humidity is usually only 15%. Last week though, the humidity was at or above 55% the whole time and it sucks because I don't own an A/C

  28. @scribus Do you know about grounding techniques and how to use them?

  29. When you 3D print something and one part of the print wasn't modeled as expected and it has to be reprinted. I created a HTC Vive controller holder. The controller fits well but the USB cable holder is misaligned. It has only to be tilted by 5° and it'd have been perfect.

  30. @scribus Maybe that's an idea but when I'll do it I'll skip the issue with the dragon dong. I don't know anymore which issue it was.
