More documentation of things I have noticed.

In the section of setting up Octoprint, there is a part where the commands to be typed, and the physical keys to be pressed are not clearly defined.

http://wiki.thing-printer.com/index.php?title=Kamikaze#System_commands

The CTL+D looks like it should just be pasted into the shell, when it means to exit/quit the cat command.

And the whitespace is slightly wrong, leading to the command not working. The one that works for me is:

system:
actions:
- action: Reboot Octorint
command: sudo systemctl restart octoprint.service
name: Reboot Octorint
- action: Reboot
command: sudo shutdown -r now
name: Reboot
- action: Shutdown
command: sudo shutdown -h now
name: Shutdown

and the one on the wiki is

system:
actions:
- action: Reboot Octorint
command: sudo systemctl restart octoprint.service
name: Reboot Octorint
- action: Reboot
command: sudo shutdown -r now
name: Reboot
- action: Shutdown
command: sudo shutdown -h now
name: Shutdown

And it even locked up my octoprint for a while. I edited this all in nano, which worked just fine.

Ok I fixed the whitespace issue on the wiki page. It's a bit tricky as the space indentations actually make a difference.

Manga Screen seems to be wonky. Less than half the screen responds to touch, and the side looks weird.

I was instructed by Elias to run a command of:

cat /sys/devices/platform/ocp/4830e000.lcdc/drm/card0/card0-HDMI-A-1/edid | parse-edid

And when I do I get "Partial Read... Try Again"

What does this mean and/or how do I fix it?

I realize that they are doing a good thing. I think this is amazing.

But...

I can't help but think that this just is playing on the novelty of the whole ordering in ASL, and that they won't have much patronage after a few months. And that is really unfortunate.

Guess I have to buy a Tesla E when it is out now... 
As some of you may know, I recently published a cartoonist's review of my Tesla Model S. In the second half of the review, I asked Elon Musk to donate toward the completion of a Nikola Tesla Museum, a project I've been working on since 2012. Within a few hours of posting my review, ...

I still think that hybrid slot car design would be a far more efficient means of moving massive amounts of people around.

No, really. Think about it. It is all the convenience of a car, with all the benefits of mass transportation, and so very few of the downsides of both.

Electric cars are great (And getting better!) but it is still difficult to go across the country in them. Even if you went from Tesla SuperCharger to the next, it would take you quite a long time. Both in the charging, and also in the sleeping aspect since you can only stay alert for so long. The driverless car solves one of these issues--staying awake--but the other is charging those pesky batteries.

A few of you might be saying, "Well just swap out the battery like I do in my cordless drill!" and the battery swapping concept is a GOOD idea. I think that would help a vast majority of people seriously consider electric cars if they were in place. Because then, well, you wouldn't need to plan out where you want to go based around the charging ports. You could just drop a battery when you saw a swapping station. But that still requires stopping at a battery station to do the swaps.

What if you never needed to stop?

That is what the "Slot Car" concept brings to the table. By having the charging/guiding being taken care of physically--unable to have a software glitch that would send you over an embankment--then you don't need that big spinning Magic Box (LIDAR?) on top, and you can charge from the same physical connection, making the car go potentially forever.

Then, with clever software, you could link up in groups of people going to similar places so that jetstream effect would make each car require less energy to keep going. Making them even more efficient.

You could even deliver data such as high speed internet through the physical connection. So, no more cell reception required in those really remote areas. You would have a 'wired' connection going into the ground. This is also cheaper to do as well.

And then finally, since everyone is in their own car, you can do things that you can't do on a train such as smoke or listen to your own music, or eat really smelly cheese if you are so inclined. It is your own car, do what you want!

So who is in? +Elon Musk? I hear you like new groundbreaking/world changing technologies. And you already have a pretty kick ass electric car...

I am going to attempt to document all the things I find with Replicape/Kamikaze getting it installed into my Rostock Max V2 printer. This will be as I find them, and remember to write them down. They might not be in any order. But I think that documentation being written down is a start of something.

First thing is that the instructions on the wiki for Kamikaze install are not clear as they could be. For instance, it is mentioned in one spot that having all 4 lights solid blue means that it is time to power down the board and remove the SD card. But before that, it is mentioned that it will 'power down' but having all 4 lights on doesn't really seem like a 'powered down' state to me.

Secondly, the 'ping kamikaze.local' command only works if you have a mDNS/SD-DNS installed, and Win10 does not have it installed by default for all applications. You need to download and install one, and the major one is (ironically) Apple based. It is called "Bonjour Print Services for Windows" even more confusingly since it works for everything and not just printers... Once that is installed, then it works as expected. It usually returns an IPV6 address, but sometimes a IPV4 address, so PuTTY kind of freaks out sometimes when connecting. Oh, and having a WiFi and wired connection also makes everything freak out--so pick one or the other. Not both. Wired is more reliable, but wireless is far more convenient if you are pulling the board in and out of places.

It's only stronger when it is soldered. Just wrapped like that it will, we'll, do that what which it did!

This works for crap on solid wire, FYI. It works, but it isn't as strong, takes forever and you nearly always stab your finger in the process. No es bueno.

Diversity is well and good... But why not do Patreon instead of a website that doesn't work on Android? They just got iOS and that also should have been there from the beginning.

What? These are not tears. I was just cutting Onions while cleaning my dusty shelves when a bright ray of sun was reflected off of a car driving by and watching random youtube videos.

Yeah. That's it. Totes it.

This store is amazing. I don't come in often, but when I do I nearly always leave in a better mood than when I walked in. The people are nice, they are accommodating (so long as you are not a complete jerkface) and they know the stuff, or they know who knows the stuff. Don't lose your receipt in an hour, and you can return stuff. Don't expect to come into the store and think it is a library where you can browse all day and have nobody bother you. Don't be a jerkface.

I have never had a bad meal or experience at Nick's Family Restaurant. Everyone is friendly, it is clean and comfortable, and the food is amazing. Simple and delicious food from breakfast to dinner, the coffee is fantastic too.

Excellent. Every single bit of this was perfect. The Bento Box are perfectly sized so that you can eat the entire thing and not take a nap at work. I will be coming back for lunch fairly regularly.

I don't know why all the negative feedback here... This place is great. I admit that the other customers are insane sometimes, but that's not the fault of this Chipotle. Also call ahead or order online. They always are ready by the time I get here and I live 10 minutes away.

I have been to this location about 4 times. I cannot recall the exact number, but I did come here before and my experiences were mediocre at best. PROS: The shop is fairly quiet, with the range at the back being well insulated with doors and thick walls. You pay a single 'rate' for however long you plan to shoot, however much you want to shoot. Well ventilated range. CONS: Small shop, small selection. You are constantly bumping into people if there are more than 15 people there. Staff can be a bit rude at times, preferring to sell you things rather than handle questions or chit-chat. New shooters will REQUIRE a $25 dollar class to be taken on a Wednesday between 6 and 8pm. This class is First Come First Served, and there are only so many seats. Parking is an absolute joke. There are 4 spots in front of the store, 99% of the time they are full. Forcing you to park down the street, on a residential street. First time was for when I was taking my concealed permit. I was with a class, so I had no idea what I was in for. The staff stayed out of our way for the most part, but they did try and sell everything in the shop to every single student there. I took my test (passed) and then stuck around to shoot for a bit and left. Second time was with two other individuals and it was a fairly straight forward. Pay, shoot, leave. Nobody really interacted with us, but I don't remember anything positive about it either. This most recent time was just the last straw really. Went there with two new shooters, and basically was told that a $25 dollar class that was held on Wednesday was required for new shooters. Really? $50 for two people who have never shot before--and this is their first experience? Fifty-bucks?!! I have my permit, I have shot many times before--NOPE! Didn't matter. Okay, I get it that you had a guy shot on the range in August, but have people sign a form... Don't make them shell out triple the rate for the range their first time there. Just silly. Will not be back. Ever.

Always a treat to go here, which I forget is tucked away in a little shopping plaza. Everything is sliced fresh (the bread, and the meat) right before your eyes, so the meat is always very high quality. The large is enough for two people easily, which is how I usually convince someone else to go with me here. I haven't had anything but the subs, but the cookies look fantastic.
