I brought home a salvaged tape robot. The kids really enjoy demo mode.

I meant as a kids project to save text files they wrote themselves.

Why Linus Torvalds doesn't use Debian: http://youtu.be/qHGTs1NSB1s

Debian is easy to install. However I don't blame Linus for staying for away. It would be like Linus working with a 5 year old kernel on a distro.

I finally managed to put together an enclosure for the Ord bot from reclaimed wood and cardboard. I'm hoping this improves my ABS print consistency.

I'll swap out the cardboard sides later for something more permanent. The glass window is held in by duct tape so that'll improve.

The Ord bot is functional again. This is the best printing since well before the move to Colorado.

If you don't operate according to clock time and instead do things relative to dawn and dusk, I can understand that perspective. In fact, maybe one day we will have a continuous DST implementation that gives us a different start and end time for things relative to that day's dawn and dusk, and things will have come full circle.

Christian, Dad, Geek, Maker, System Admin
Introduction
I like to make things, I like to understand things and I like to make small changes that have significant positive impact in a system after having spent the effort to understand the system fully. I'll usually wait to be asked before I contribute and I'll expect you to contribute without being asked. I take great joy in my faith, family and freedom. I don't believe in self-esteem. 

More than STEAM or any other educational ideal, I believe in giving my kids an education tuned to them and their unique abilities to foster their creativity and excitement for learning and to give them freedom to develop an understanding of the world around them outside of the pressure and guidance of a peer group, but in a multi-aged and as diverse community as I can foster. These are the things that encourage me to homeschool my children.

I don't believe in normal. I think normal is a harmful concept that is used to encourage us to all achieve less than we are capable of and to ignore our greatest interests and strengths causing us to be less than we were created capable of due to the pressures of our society to fit in. In the end I believe this does damage to the society by eschewing diversity and promoting uniformity in the name of unity. I believe unity can be attained in highly diverse communities of people and I desire to promote that in the communities of which I take part.

My wife and I were planning a date bike ride, but found a flat on her bike and a dry rot tire on mine Also I wanted to switch to flat pedals to pull a trailer of kids in the future. We stopped in for parts and checked about getting it installed. The place was hoping, but Taylor took care of us right away as he said he didn't have room to store them. While we waited we enjoyed a couple Mochas that were terrific and took in the atmosphere. We were in and out in 20min. for about $60 including labor and coffee. We happened to hit a day where everything was discounted so prices were especially good and they made sure we got the best of the deals by giving us our coupon back saying they had a better deal for us. Our date plans saved and even enhanced, we popped into a couple more shops in the triangle and then headed out to enjoy a meal at Outback. We ended the evening coasting around Cedar Beach, an excellent restart of our biking enthusiasm pre-kids. Next time the kids are coming.

I went to puppet training in this facility on the 11th floor. Finding the building was no trouble. Security was friendly and easy to work with. The folks at the front desk were good. Bathrooms were maintained and snacks and lunch were provided. There is a Pot Belly's on the ground level of the same building if you want something different. If you are coming from outside the city by bus, there are several options for catching a bus into port authority and an easy walk from where they leave you. If it is raining, you will get wet so an umbrella is worth considering if the weather is threatening.

It gets the job done and beats driving to Bethlehem. The attendant is friendly and informative, but behind glass and you have to request a key for access to the bathroom, but really, this is a bus terminal. You don't spend much time here if you plan right. The one thing I'd most like is for the attendant to take credit/debit cards. The ATM wasn't working and I had to run up 4 blocks to the nearest known ATM and back, just barely making my bus. So, take cash for your purchase. Parking is available, but this isn't the best part of town so I'm not sure what the risk is in leaving a vehicle. If you aren't real close in town and have a vehicle, Trans-Bridge also picks up at their location in Bethlehem. I don't know about the other bus services in the area.

This isn't directly connected to the subway, but you can go underground to the subway the entire way. This is great if it is raining or something like that. A few amenities exist, but are limited. If you have questions, there is usually someone friendly around able to provide some assistance.

I had a simple valve stem replacement. They took care of it quickly and within the requested time even though I was needing it quickly and they had other jobs they called as soon as it was done allowing me time to plan my day easily. Thanks guys!
