Heya all. Hoping Tested has some round table on Gravity Waves soon. However, since we have a lot of sci-fi geeks around I wanted to point something out.

Gravity Waves, given their apparently impact on detection, may well be the first major tech that an inter-galactic species would look for when scanning the stars. When we start trying to find ways to produce gravity waves will an alien species show up to tell us to cut it out?

Please assist!  

I'm looking around many websites, and NONE of the ESD Mats list temperature resistance to soldering contacts.  Some companies sell both, so I would like to ask why there is NO specified disclosure on maximum heat, a heat range, or at a minimum, the maximum temperature that the mats have been tested to?  

Am I missing these things?  I can't afford to spend hundreds at a time to buy ANSI, ROHS, ISO documents on the standards.

I see that soldering irons are recommended to be heated to 700-750 degrees, if the mats are only protected to 200 degrees, which ESD mat should I get?

Please assist...

Thank You for your time.

Since there are probably a bunch of geeks surfing by this community, I thought this might be somewhat relevant.
If my event is on the wrong side of the world for you, you can check out
http://www.tabletopday.com
to find one near you.
 
German (scroll down for English Version) :
Falls irgendwer im Nordwesten Deutschlands am International Tabletop Day 2014 noch ohne Spielabend ist, wäre das hier eine Möglichkeit. Mich trefft Ihr da auch, aber das ist vermutlich der einzige Nachteil. ;-)

English:
If anybody in north western Germany should still be without a play date for International Tabletop Day  2014, here is a place you can go. You will also meet me there, but that's probably the only downside. ;-)

I thought this might be the kind of community to dig this. Happy Holidays, everyone. :-)
 
We don't have a real tree in the lab for robotics and welding, so we decorated Robert. He liked it, so he did a little dance.

Love the channel guys, maybe someone here can help me out. I'm trying to finish my collection of futurama posters (seen in my apt below) I recently found volume 6 lela, now I'm trying to find volume 5 bender. If anyone has one or know who does let me know I'd love to buy it. Apparantly it was available at SDCC 2010.

My earphones broke the day before yesterday, so I ordered a new pair. Doing so, I remembered the memory foam tips from Will's Show and Tell and ordered a pack of those, too. Both just arrived and it's really great. I wouldn't want to use them anywhere were I might want to hear stuff from the outside world but I am already looking forward to not heaving to hear some idiot's mindless blabbering on my next long distance trip by bus, train or plane.
I use the large tips and they feel a lot like memory foam earplugs. That might be a little uncomfortable for some people but I am used to wearing these things when working on factory floors for days, so it's actually really comfortable for me.
The medium size might also work for me if I don't want to be that well isolated but so far I am really happy. :-)

These things work so good, my colleagues kept having a great time sneaking up on me from behind. So I did what everyone would have done and installed a webcam that I use as a rear view mirror now...

Hi guys,

I am considering learning some basic programming with either an Arduino or Raspberry Pi. Does anyone have any tips or advice on which to get to give the best experience to cost ratio, bearing in mind I will need to start almost from scratch.

Hey Tested community! I saw a video about Adam's everyday carry and it got me thinking about what I carry around every day. Since it's only a smartphone, keys and usually my wallet, I want to ask what is your EDC and how/when do you use it? :)

Best hopes and dreams of CES 2013, anyone? I know +Will Smith has legitimate concerns, but we still like tech!
