I'm always working on new segments and series for the show. I like to go a little out of my wheelhouse so that we spread out our topics, but this time I'm going WAAAAAAAY out of my wheelhouse.
I've been working on a new series called, "The Green Geek" -- in which I show how to grow plants indoors, move to making tech to ease the growth of plants indoor (think: Arduino controlled lights, fans, heater and irrigation) and end up with some cool segments on extracting essential oils from plant material. (Lavender!)
Hey KIAs... I want to apologize for being absent from the community for the last month or so. --- The TWiT live schedule is pretty demanding and I just haven't had the time I want to interact with you. I've missed some great projects and a few angry members with legit gripes.
I'll try to do better... and things should get better once we get to May (until August, when it becomes a mad house once again)
I've queued up a bunch of your posts for feedback and segments in the near future. Stay active. Keep building... and we'll keep hacking at it.
+Fr. Robert Ballecer, SJ I think you could do the side box thingy in a shape kind of like half a motorcycle gas tank and it would look kind of cool. Not quite exactly skilled enough with the 3d software myself to get curves happening like that either. That would be a good topic for an episode. I'd like to see your result if you were to primer and paint that 3d printed piece as well to make it match or be painted to match the texture of the goggles.
(I'm trying K.IT.As rather than KIAs, because... well... I don't want people to think you're all dead.)
The new format of Know How has been well-received. It seems that you all like shorter shows with themed content.
So... how you would all feel if instead of doing a 2 weekly 30-45 minute shows with three segments and two ads each, we instead did 5 INDIVIDUAL 10-15 minute segments with a single ad that was released daily?
I think we can make them tight and bite-sized... perhaps increasing our YouTube viewership past the "1% of downloads" that we have right now. We'd also make it easier to find EXACTLY the segment that you're looking for, AND give you a new KH every day!
Hey all... just a quick note to some of our more prolific posters.
We LOVE activity in this community, thank you for that. However, some folks are resposting the same article/link/etc. to multiple groups and the G+ spam filters are automatically flagging/hiding posts.
If you notice your posts disappearing or not appearing in the first place, it could be that your account has been flagged. Apologies for the inconvenience.
