Just finished listening to +methodisch inkorrekt podcast episode 50 (making my way through episodes takes a bit longer now that I no longer have to drive to work ;)) and naturally had to give the hearing test they refered to a try

http://onlinetonegenerator.com/hearingtest.html

I stopped hearing the tone around 16000Hz. I'm 32 years old, so that is actually slightly above average hearing capability, and that's good I guess ;)

I'll be at +Maker Faire Hannover this year again, June 6th through 7th. Will arrive around noon on saturday and stay until sunday early afternoon.

Like two years ago it will be a geeky mom-daughter-outing for me and +Dorothee Haeussge but that still doesn't mean I won't bring +OctoPrint stickers and happy to say hi to people here and there. 

So, who will I be able to meet?

Whedon’s own frustration with watching decades of horror heroines wander vapidly into demonic deathtraps led him to create both a show and a character that played with our expectations. As Bitch magazine notes, viewers did not yell at their TVs for Buffy to avoid going into the dark dens of monsters, but learned to cheer on her strength and inevitable victory over the evil monsters.
It's often surprising for fans to remember that Buffy the Vampire Slayer debuted in 1996. After all, the show appears fresh and modern, from its snappy and

Yeah, some of those points were a bit... odd to say the least, this being one of them, and the thing with the long season wide story arcs (X Files?). But the rest kinda rings a bell and it was reshare worthy even just for the language part ;)

OMG this is awesome. A JavaScript emulation of the computer I made my first steps in first typing and then coding on, back in '89 :)

I spent hours with the tutorial disk, navigating little rabbits through a labyrinth to their carrots (naturally I just had to try that out again just now ;)), playing some pinball game and of course making my first steps in BASIC on a machine like that

Little me back then had no idea what would come of that ;)

Btw, for people who are surprised that "I don't like Apple" Gina actually started on one - THAT machine still came with schematics, could be opened and self serviced and you actually were encouraged to make it your own ;)

[de] Wow, ganz toll liebe +BARMER GEK​. Falls ich mal irgendwann die Krankenkasse wechseln sollte habt ihr mit dem Stunt die Entscheidung zumindest dahin gehen vereinfacht, euch nicht als Option betrachten zu können.

Die +BARMER GEK zeigt sich hier mal von ihrer ganz tollen Seite. +Jana Friedrich ist Hebamme (und betreibt das hebammenblog.de), und erfährt, dass die Barmer nicht für die Hebamme zahlt, wenn's 'ne Fehlgeburt wird.

Ganz toll. Scheißladen.

Mir ist klar, dass das Geld auch irgendwo herkommen muss und wie das Konzept Krankenkasse funktioniert.

Mein Argument ist nicht “eine Krankenkasse muss alles bezahlen“ sondern “wenn eine Krankenkasse für Leistungen einer Hebamme vor, während und nach der Geburt aufkommt, dann sollte sie erst recht für die Leistungen einer Hebamme vor, während und nach einer Fehlgeburt aufkommen“. Auf mich wirkt das hier wie Paragraphenreiten zwecks Kostenersparnis in einer ohnehin schon (sorry) mehr als beschissenen Situation für die Beteiligten. Das ist der falsche Ort zum “Kostenoptimieren“. Für mich als (nicht mehr) potentielle Kundin signalisiert das “solange alles gut geht mit dem Babykriegen sind wir für dich da, wenn nicht liegt das nicht innerhalb unseres Leistungsspektrums, schade“.

Wenn ich mir angucke, dass die Gefäß-OPs zur Varizenbeseitigung von jahrelangen Kettenrauchern aus dem gemeinsamen Pott bezahlt werden, aber dann sowas kommt (wie es sich hier darstellt), dann läuft meiner Meinung nach irgendwas schief mit dem von +Hans Franke​​ erwähnten richtigen Mittelweg.

Aber ich sehe auch ein, dass es wenig Sinn macht, auf Basis der vorhandenen Informationen jetzt weiter “aber wenn es so und so war, dann...“ zu spielen.

First try ever at weaving Paracord. Bracelet sadly came out a bit too large and I had to do the two stranded diamond knot that is used for the clasp thrice and redo the whole band once since I made the loop that's the other part of the clasp too small, but for a first try I'm quite happy with the results.

Wanting to make myself an anti mosquito bracelet is what triggered experimenting with this stuff, might also look into a dog collar or even a leash for my parent's dog Jenny once I have this figured out better.

I used to do a lot of friendship bracelet weaving back in my teens, so this is right down my alley and sometimes getting away from the computer and doing something with your hands that doesn't involve typing is what is needed as well ;)

So... +Joylent 

Just having my first taste of it ever (decided on the banana flavor for my first try). Contrary to what +Thomas Sanladerer described I can't make out much salt. It tastes... harmless. Like oats with a hint of banana. Actually quite pleasant, I'd expected something way more horrible. A bit gritty though. I used 3 spoons of powder (using the included measuring spoon) and topped that up with water, so it is actually very fluid now, real shake consistency.

I might try how the texture changes if you let it sit in the fridge for some time like some people recommend.

For anyone wondering why I'm trying "that horrid pseudo food!!1!" - curiosity. I do not intend to change my diet to Joylent or similar all-nutrients-included-shakes, but I figured it might be a way more healthy option for a quick meal when I'm really hungry but don't have much time compared to what I usually tend to eat in such cases (nothing or something very very unhealthy).

Soylent is hard to get, even here in the states. Like you say, I love the idea of a nutritious substance that I can throw together when I have lost track of time and realize it is 4pm and I haven't eaten all day.

That said, the flavor of Soylent is fine by me but it is also pretty gritty regardless of how long it has been constituted. It makes me start coughing at least once during a 400ml meal. There's also the digestibility factor. 1 meal in 1 day? No problem. 2 meals in 2 days? Some intestinal discomfort. 3 meals over 3 days? Much intestinal discomfort. This is even using their slow ramp up period.

I've also done one day where I ate only Soylent. There was unpleasant aftermath for me and those with noses around me.

Dear Lazyplus, I recently (maybe two weeks ago?) found some short quote in my stream with the basic gist of "I didn't study computer science to fix my relatives' computers all the time". But way funnier. Made me go all "so true". Was either English or German.

Anyone remember that one? Would love to re-find it.

+Jeremie Francois Even flying with small panes isn't more gas guzzling than taking a car. Ofc, there are the same variations as with cars, like you may drive at reasonable (but high) speed over an Autobahn, or crank full speed on local streets. The later is maybe not realy efficient. And eventually a good example for less than common sense.

The 'protection of existing rights' is a fundermental base in our (european) law system. It protects citizens from random acts of government. My remark where mostly targeted at your comment about outdated, noisy and poluting engines. It will be quite hard to remove them by decret.

The whole political process is about balancing the various interests - and desprite all imperfections, slow and way too short reactions, I still prefer it over random decisions. They tend to do more harm than good.

Now, you experiance about low flights over a populated area is a different issue. Here changes are rather easy to implement. I know that regulations in F a not as harsch as over here (In D the laws regarding height above settled areas are maybe way too strict), but to my knowledge, flying in 50m above a settlement is not allowed in normal circumstances. Not even near an airfield.

When someone is trying to sell you a 3d printer kit for 70 money units which doesn't include the steppers, the stepper drivers, the controller, the bearings, the pulleys, the belts, the hotend and not even the PSU (that about sums up the most expensive parts of every printer), that's not a 3d printer kit but a marketing stunt which also smells suspiciously like an attempt to cash in on the gullibility and lack of research among some of the people in the market for their own printer.

Please don't fall victim to that. Do your research.

As I have ranted about a couple of times already, what makes developing host software (aka OctoPrint) tremendously difficult is the heterogeneous protocol environment that is our current state of the art in consumer 3d printing. Since there is no well defined standard of communication every firmware under the sun does it slightly different enough that getting a communication layer to work with everything, ideally without the user having to configure anything, is a huge nightmare. (Just to avoid any confusion: I'm talking about the communication between the host software, e.g. OctoPrint, and the firmware on the printer, e.g. Marlin, which usually happens via serial)

After my initial rant a couple weeks ago (see further below in this collection) a healthy discussion in the comments of that post ensued and made me give in and - with the help of +Andreas Gohr​ who provided the wiki and +Justin Nesselrotte​ who acted as a valuable sparring partner - start my own attempt at trying to get a minimal standard together.

Thanks to work on OctoPrint's imminent next stable version and some private stuff my pace working on this has been way slower than I'd hoped, but the ground works have been laid. In the meantime another issue with Marlin made me show what I already had over in their bug tracker, so I thought why not give out the link here too :)

My current approach:

- Wiki with limited write access but public discussions - only for the initial collaborative effort to get a definition done, the final spec would be read-only and static, I'd suggest something like hosting it on github pages ("reprapcode.github.io" or a custom (sub) domain even)
- Defined transport protocol as close to the current realities across the multiple firmwares as possible, basically a subset of all possible variants we have today - to minimize adaptation impact on both host as well as firmware developers
- Proper definition of requests and responses (this is something that is lacking nearly completely right now, leading to things like four or five different possible versions of a response to M105 alone)
- Properly defined points for vendor extensions (we need to end this "M4711 does X on Marlin and Y on Repetier" madness)
- Proper documentation of effects on the printer
- Responsibilities of the host & of the firmware in terms of request/response processing
- Long term: Proper test suites to allow hosts and firmwares to test their compliance with

My goal with this right now is to create a basis for discussion first and foremost (there's disqus setup for that). I'm still far off a complete spec so no need to rub that in, a day only has so many hours ;) But if you want to get an idea of what I mean with "well defined" requests and responses, take a look the M20 spec in that page.

Now, I hope that I can get some of you 3d printing people out there to make this less of a "me" and more of an "us" thing so that the life for us software developers out there on both the host and firmware side may involve more moving things actually forward and less fiddling just to get our software to speak with our hardware in the future. In this sense, let's talk :)
The goal is to try to find a sane, minimal standard for the current 3D printer communication protocol variants across the RepRap community. Ideally the final outcome of the first iteration will be a minimal subset of commands necessary for general printer operation via the serial interface, ...

Some news on reverse engineering my height adjustable desk.

After a great hint by +Florian Echtler​ I since acquired a second control unit which I've just spent the last half an hour trying to open up. In the end I succeeded with some dentist tools and raw violence - they are glued shut. In the process or rather a bit afterwards and thanks to my curiosity I also managed to permanently break the button pad (I peeled it back to take a look at the circuitry and the very cheap foil buttons didn't like that and now don't go back into neutral position without my help anymore cough). A good thing I didn't do this on my actual unit ;)

Attached to this post are a couple of pictures of what the innards look like. The brain is a PIC 16LF1938. The two signals from the up and down buttons go through what I think I identified as a 10/100k resistor array, the final outcome of that seems to enter the PIC at some point (haven't yet identified the exact pin) is either one or the other. Note that in the picture there is a bit of a parallax effect going on, both buttons go to the right of the two "103" ICs whose other side pins are all connected together. I also spotted a 3.3V regulator in the upper half which I perceive to be providing the power for the mcu.

I haven't yet come around to measuring through anything on that PCB with my multimeter, so only a visual analysis for now. The red cable coming in is probably 0V (I'm judging from the big plane on the backside it's connected to). I'm leaning towards the white one being that 34Vcc and the blue one the 10V leveled signal line, but that's only guessing for now.

Next step will be putting the multimeter to that thing, first passively, then getting it powered up without the actual table attached and seeing what I can learn that way.

Note that I have never tried to reverse engineer hardware before, so if anything here looks or sounds stupid to you, that might be because I just have no bloody clue what I'm actually doing here and having a lot of first time experiences with that stuff ;)

All i know is Vias cost money (not much anymore) so running 2 vias to nowhere is silly. And shorting out the diode would be  silly.

My method would be to check the way the controller works with a scope (not a DMM) when it is working. and replicate that an arduino and a shield.
