Exactly why I backed this on Kickstarter, that and I trust Derek Muller to deliver on education.

+Karl Auerbach: How to turn off your Volt start / stop sounds

Finally figured it out! Config->Radio Settings->Audio Cues. Uncheck Audio Cues enabled. BOOM

Another round of prints. Skeleton models of and icosahedron and cube, one hollow (which I learned the drain hole should have been at least 3mm), and a great test print I found on thingverse. You can see how clear the resin parts are when they come out of the printer and after the alcohol baths... but after a while they fog up (I'm guessing either its part of the cleaning? just the part of post curing?), which can be cleaned up with wet sanding.

+John A. Tamplin, each layer is sheared off from the bottom of the resin tank (it's built upside down, with the build platform lifting out of the resin). In the Form1, the shearing was done by the platform moving up and the tank angling down on one side. This lead to failed prints due to uneven stress. The Form2 has the resin tank sliding sideways.

I was just using the auto-rotate feature of the software. If it is too shallow, it's really hard to get underneath and cut all the supports (though next time I'll cut them at the base and then trim). If the part is too fine, it could break (my first coin was flat).

Short explanation:

Some more DayZ roleplay with friends on chernarusrp.com; this time we geared down to play police in the apocalypse... some folks went along with it, some folks just want to fight.

+Michael Powell we were all laughing and having a good time. We had to jump up a channel in teamspeak to talk to the other guys - who were all pissed off at first - and remind them that chernarusrp.com isn't about gearing up and being paramilitary, its about interactions. In the end, everyone agreed they had a lot of fun and it wasn't boring.

It took me a while to edit this one together (who knew I could upload more than 15 minutes of video to YouTube!). Fun nerdy stuff: encoding took only 23 minutes because I spread it across 7 cores. I just did frames / 7 for each worker... with a boost to my desktop which has a newer i5 vs a first gen i7. I horribly underestimated the power of my old server though, and cores remained idle. Time to write a job server :)

And now for something completely different that politics. Starts dark, just the right amount of weird to make me smile.

Dayz Challenge Coin

First 3D print. Took the 3D logo I made for videos and extruded it from a 1.75" coin blank in Blender. Did the same for "YOU ARE DEAD" on the back.

DayZ is heads, YOU ARE DEAD is tails... because the game is always reaming you in one way or another.

Lessons learned: Don't let the supports touch the text at any cost (between U and R and a few other places). Don't print flat (SLA).

+Peter Weingartner Form2 SLA printer. There is zero finishing work done to the 'coin'. If I were going to cast it, I would re-print it with an eye for the support struts not lading on edges / text, and then spend some time cleaning up some small parts.

For the last 5 years, I've filled up my car 2.5 times a year. 85% of the time it was on electric. Not too shabby.

Every X weeks of non-usage it'll start engine maintenance, which circulates fuel, oil, etc. I change the oil every 2 years, but even then it's said I have 95% oil life left (this number is more than likely based on engine run time). The engine operates at 3 fixed RPM ranges, so it is said to have less wear and tear than someone cycling and ICE up and down with normal traffic.

+Mikeycal Meyers, render time 13 minutes, 15 seconds on 4 cores (i5 4760k, 16GB ram). Just thought you might like to see some results of using your videos; e.g. the fade transitions are all color strips with keyframes -supppppper happy to use that instead of gama crosses.

To line up the title with the music, there's a great button for "render waveform" on any audio strip (use sparingly). Find the beat and drop your images / text strips.

A political ad that does just that - sells the candidates and their achievements. No yelling, dirty tricks, or mud slinging.

Nice ad. Johnson Weld does kinda sound like a welding/fabrication company to me a little bit :)

This place is hidden away off Fair Oaks Ave; just past the park. The staff is always nice, the flowers fresh, and it is my go-to florist.

Dr. Maa is great. He took the time to discuss options, called me back after hours to make sure I was doing OK, and is very friendly. The office is great.

Three stars is one star too many! Lets start with a quick list of things that are wrong: -The wifi network is horribly slow and many page loads fail. I assume they've purchased a consumer DSL line and are sharing it amongst the 15 floors of guests. -The bathroom didn't have toilet paper when we checked in. -There's popcorn finish on the ceiling above the shower - which is on a very low ceiling. I have no clue how they keep it clean, but if you are tall like me then you'll keep hitting your hand on it. -The elevators in this place are janky. You have to use your room card to select a floor, but the card reader works about 1 in 5 times. -The restaurant is really slow to order, deliver, and bring you the check. If having cheap furniture, a cheap LCD TV with low-def channels, an air conditioner, and a small 4 cup coffee machine in the room is enough to earn 3 stars, then sure. For $80 a night I would expect more.

I called up and ordered my 2012 Volt from Dan Schlappi over the phone. He helped out getting me tracking information and keeping me up to date as it was manufactured. When I went to pick it up, I got to meet Mr. Megel himself. The atmosphere of the show room was warm and welcoming. I only wish the dealership was closer to home so I could take my car in for service easily.

I've had Mike come out and take care of my trees, moving some around, and planting a new 24" orange tree in my backyard. They are great people to work with and I recommend them to anyone.

My wife and I are new to the area and finally got around to visiting Seto the other night. We can't find enough good things to say about them. The sushi was great, the style was great, and the service was awesome.
