12:15 AM gloops: maybe they did track them then https://news.sky.com/story/two-people-arrested-over-criminal-use-of-drones-at-gatwick-airport-11588565
12:24 AM CaptHindsight: well we probably will never hear the real story behind this
12:24 AM gloops: im sure isis will be watching with interest
12:25 AM CaptHindsight: the only way to win is not to play
12:25 AM CaptHindsight: too late however
12:28 AM gloops: well it provided some drama for the news channels for a few days
12:31 AM CaptHindsight: guess i should start marketing my anti-drone drones for airports
12:32 AM CaptHindsight: drone with a net starting at only $499,995.00ea
12:33 AM CaptHindsight: batteries not included
12:34 AM gloops: theres a video going round of a football match - fan took BBC drone down with a toilet roll thrown at it
12:34 AM gloops: wrapped up in the rotors
12:38 AM CaptHindsight: drone with net on leash with parachute for backup landing
12:38 AM CaptHindsight: if the antidrone can't remain stable after tangling with the victim drone
12:38 AM gloops: what you really want is something to track the rogue drone operator
12:38 AM CaptHindsight: nah
12:38 AM CaptHindsight: will only catch dumb operators
12:38 AM gloops: pretty sure thats why they have allowed this to go on so long
12:39 AM CaptHindsight: but it worked so well for so long so naaaaahh
12:40 AM gloops: unlikely in this the season of halal xmas dinners
12:42 AM gloops: dont think theres much i can make on a cnc router that will contribute to the drone wars though
12:43 AM gloops: i can however make funeral urns - always an opening
01:50 AM Deejay: moin

05:03 AM jthornton: morning
05:04 AM XXCoder: hey jt
06:07 AM Tom_L: morning
06:08 AM jthornton: morning
06:08 AM jthornton: 28°F mostly sunny high 51°F sounds like a nice day here
06:11 AM Tom_L: similar here
06:12 AM Tom_L: 33F Hi 53 scattered clouds
06:27 AM jdh: and 1sec more daylight today!
06:29 AM jthornton: yes spring is on the way
06:31 AM methods_: spring is coming
06:31 AM jdh: 46f, sunny, bike time
06:39 AM jthornton: I should ride the mountain bike this afternoon for a while
06:40 AM jthornton: last time I went out and stopped to look at something and left my carrier lid open and figured out a couple of miles later that my keys and glasses had popped out
06:41 AM methods_: ouch
06:44 AM jthornton: lucky for me I wrap stuff in shop towels to protect it so it was easy to find
06:53 AM methods_: ah good idea
06:53 AM methods_: and you have a handy dandy towel if you need it
06:57 AM Loetmichel: *WAAAHH* That car wants to kid me... had a bad xenon headlight, so i went to the spareparts shop today... 45eur for a new xeonon lamp. And on getting back into the car i notice that the front license plate is missing... yesterday at work it was still there... now i have to search for that on the way home as well. OK, later. So i changed the bulb: still no light. measured: 2.5V on the arc
06:57 AM Loetmichel: starter module input... so now i have to find that wire knot... and then search the whole 12km to work for that dam license plate :-(
10:01 AM holzjunkie1: hy @all
10:20 AM Loetmichel: *maan* now i am pissy. Xenons are working. it wasnt the bulb, it was an oxidized fuse. pull, clean, put back in: works. So i bought the 45 eur bulb for nothing. And the license plate is still missing. and my brother in law (who is a german police officer) says: "goto city council, get a new tag and TWO new license plate, pay around 100eur." because someone could find the missing plate and
10:20 AM Loetmichel: could do shady things with it. :-(
10:22 AM gloops: im double pissed off as well
10:22 AM gloops: found a 1hp motor for my bandsaw, collected, fitted, no good!
10:23 AM gloops: so on another day ill fit a 2hp
10:39 AM gloops: the annoying thing is, the bit i made - the saw itself seems to be working perfectly, 22inch cut span, blade doesnt budge under resistance, everything lined in perfect, just a bloody motor to get it going
11:03 AM _unreal_: yay..... just got my splash mold sprayed with gelcoat finally FINALLY
11:03 AM _unreal_: project is @#$@#$ months behind
11:04 AM _unreal_: have to make the splash mold, sand it, polish it, then prep and layup the tooling mold off of the splash. so I can finally build my final part
11:05 AM _unreal_: Tom_L, its like 68f here :)
11:05 AM * gloops has calmed down to 50% stuck project rage
11:06 AM gloops: ill change some pulleys and fiddle with some gearing, this will work
11:10 AM _unreal_: ?
12:08 PM fragalot: 'sup
12:25 PM gloops: looks like they got the drone pranksters
12:25 PM gloops: 47 year old man and a 53 year old woman - if they are prankster
12:25 PM gloops: s
12:32 PM fragalot: let's hope they get what they deserve
12:32 PM fragalot: because intentionally (there is no way "didn't know") crippling an airport is acceptable.
12:32 PM fragalot: let alone ruining the hobby
12:42 PM gloops: there is talk of life sentences
12:51 PM gloops: 5 years max for dangerous drone flying, but the cops have found some other relevant charges, endangering lives etc
01:03 PM HighInBC: the obvious solution for taking down drones seems to be a rifle
01:03 PM HighInBC: though I guess you have the problem of missed targets
01:03 PM HighInBC: they need a bullet that explode to dust after X meters
01:04 PM gloops: unbelievable they didnt take it down, could have been carrying semtex or dioxins etc
01:05 PM gregcnc: stuff like that available at the corner store?
01:06 PM gloops: no, but it is available
01:06 PM SpeedEvil: gregcnc: Tesco had buy-one-get-one-free on 2kg blocks.
01:06 PM SpeedEvil: I stocked up.
01:07 PM gregcnc: if that was the intent, it was too late once it was spotted
01:07 PM gloops: 2kg of semtex would have done for a lot of people in a packed airport
01:07 PM SpeedEvil: I would not be wholly surprised if it was an accident.
01:07 PM SpeedEvil: Runaway GPS loiter issue
01:07 PM gregcnc: there are easier targets and methods
01:07 PM SpeedEvil: Mis-set home location.
01:08 PM gloops: nah, kept returning, maybe an accident in the first place
01:08 PM gregcnc: but how does that happen several times?
01:08 PM gloops: then when he saw the mayhem he could cause, he turned into a depraved lunatic
01:08 PM SpeedEvil: gloops: Intermittent signal, returning to mis-set home location
01:08 PM SpeedEvil: (I have not investigated the time period over which it happened - if it was > flytime, then that doesn't stand up)
01:09 PM gregcnc: over 36 hours?
01:09 PM gloops: a motorist saw the bloke frantically packing the drone away at the side of the road - he was on a bicycle
01:09 PM SpeedEvil: Ah
01:09 PM HighInBC: poor planning
01:09 PM SpeedEvil: nvm then
01:09 PM gloops: stupid way to get caught, why didnt he go behind some cover
01:09 PM HighInBC: I would have used a 4g connection from another country
01:10 PM gloops: also arrested a female, dunno what her role was, maybe lookout
01:10 PM gloops: unless this is a terror or political cell
01:11 PM gregcnc: what was voted on while this was going on?
01:11 PM gloops: nothing, parliament is out for xmas
01:11 PM HighInBC: war on xmass clearly
01:12 PM gloops: comes with a large bill
01:12 PM gregcnc: they probably got bumped from a flight this summer
01:13 PM _unreal_: drone pranksters?
01:15 PM _unreal_: regardless if there is a couple doing that chances are they are part of a network of people that planned it... trying to cause or give cause for regulation.
01:16 PM gloops: could be a false flag yeah, whatever they call it
01:16 PM _unreal_: just like the MF'er from cali. That was caught tossing hundreds of thousands of straws into the ocean waters trying to PUSH for legisation to ban drinking straws
01:16 PM HighInBC: stupid jackassery is far more common and likely
01:16 PM gregcnc: i didn't see that
01:16 PM _unreal_: HighInBC, not likely
01:17 PM HighInBC: always bet on stupid
01:17 PM _unreal_: the chances that those peole have never heard of air craft not being able to go fly in a zone do to a drone is zero
01:18 PM HighInBC: yes but stupid includes knowingly doing stupid things
01:18 PM HighInBC: it was a laugh I bet
01:18 PM fragalot: gloops: i'm more surprised the officials didn't yet have one of those netting drones they've shown on tv
01:19 PM _unreal_: knowingly doing something stupid is willful
01:19 PM gloops: they didnt seem to have any anti-drone capabilities
01:19 PM _unreal_: thats not stupid. Thats will full
01:19 PM _unreal_: stupid = no nothing fool
01:19 PM HighInBC: there is ignorance and there is stupidity\
01:19 PM HighInBC: a stupid person can be fully informed and still do the wrong thing
01:19 PM gregcnc: but some can't not be stupid
01:20 PM gloops: i dunno, buzzing the airport might be a laugh - but possibly hundred million + costs, images of all those people on TV, kids, disabled etc
01:20 PM gloops: a bit beyond a joke
01:21 PM _unreal_: just like a lot of these BS liberals that have been getting arrested harasing goverment people. senators, etc...... they are WILLING to take the fall to be "stupid" thats willful not ignorant
01:21 PM _unreal_: pre-meditated
01:21 PM _unreal_: pre-meditated is prob the best description in general
01:21 PM HighInBC: there have been more than a few cases drones getting the way of planes
01:21 PM gloops: how did he know they wouldnt just shoot it down though?
01:21 PM fragalot: my gripe is that by being idiots, they are working in the hands of those trying to ban/regulate things that didn't require any regulating in the first place
01:21 PM HighInBC: an airliner hit a drone once, no significant damage only by cahnce
01:22 PM _unreal_: HighInBC, few cases NO ARGUMENT
01:22 PM HighInBC: they should just ban idiocy
01:22 PM fragalot: HighInBC: a LOT of those have been debunked, or never proven to be a drone
01:22 PM gloops: if it gets sucked into the engines though
01:22 PM _unreal_: gloops, thats common sense, all airports are gun free zones
01:23 PM _unreal_: can not discharge a weapon
01:23 PM fragalot: _unreal_: actually there are quite a lot of guns in french airports atm
01:23 PM _unreal_: I'm speaking USA
01:23 PM fragalot: and belgian ones, though i'm not sure if the army is still patrolling there or not
01:23 PM gloops: same policy here re guns - unless there is an active life/death situation i think
01:24 PM _unreal_: lol france...... was enjoying the riots. knew they where going to happen.. thankyou macron
01:25 PM gregcnc: in China there were military with rifles at the airports
01:25 PM _unreal_: HighInBC, there are still ZERO airplane/drone strikes PEIROD
01:25 PM _unreal_: in the USA at least
01:26 PM _unreal_: no one in there right mind is going to fly a quadcopter or drone near where planes fly. A: they are expensive B: no sane person wants to take THAT kind of a risk.
01:26 PM fragalot: _unreal_: yeah - sadly that doesn't make for an interesting article, so the media likes to allude to there being one anyway
01:26 PM _unreal_: pre-meditated
01:26 PM _unreal_: again comes to mind.... most of the BS these days is pre-planned
01:27 PM gloops: its a bit like playing with traffic lights
01:27 PM _unreal_: be it for or aganced goverment or what ever
01:27 PM _unreal_: ahh.... traffic lights at least int he US are not easy to play with...
01:27 PM _unreal_: not sure where your going with that
01:28 PM gloops: unless you have some burning grudge or political point to make, the only reason to do it is for a kick, a little power trip, because you can
01:28 PM _unreal_: ^^ equals pre-meditated
01:28 PM gloops: maybe the bloke got ripped off with a flight ticket
01:29 PM gloops: or his ex wife was flying to barbados with her new BF
01:29 PM _unreal_: more like people who subscribe to sheep-al mentality and fallow BS as if it was gospel
01:30 PM _unreal_: ehhh.... hard to except theory
01:30 PM _unreal_: exwife thinging anyways
01:30 PM _unreal_: regardless both would be examples of unstable minds.....
01:31 PM _unreal_: not STUPID
01:32 PM fragalot: stupidity isn't an excuse anyway
01:33 PM gloops: well the bloke on the bike was wearing a yellow vest, if he is the man who has been arrested
01:34 PM gloops: so thats an excuse to ban yellow vests as well lol
01:34 PM fragalot: and bikes
01:35 PM gloops: yes, bikes are a sign of an anti-industrial society attitude
01:35 PM gloops: unabomber mentality
01:35 PM HighInBC: once someone becomes so stupid that they are dangerous to be around their stupidity becomes indistinguishable from malice and should be treated the same
01:35 PM fragalot: bet you he wore shoes too
01:36 PM fragalot: and those shoes weren't even registered
01:37 PM gloops: well i suppose we'll find the story out soon enough
01:38 PM _unreal_: Thats why I ware sandles 99% of the year
01:39 PM _unreal_: then again I do live in south florida
01:39 PM _unreal_: :p
01:39 PM fragalot: bet you don't even wear white socks over them.
01:40 PM HighInBC: I have heard of white socks under sandals, but over them?
01:40 PM HighInBC: that would be just strange
01:40 PM fragalot: gives you better traction on ice
01:42 PM HighInBC: lol
02:12 PM miss0r: fragalot: yo
02:12 PM fragalot: miss0r: Yo.
02:12 PM miss0r: the misses gave birth to my second son 20-12
02:12 PM miss0r: :)
02:13 PM fragalot: congrats!!!!!
02:13 PM miss0r: Thank you :)
02:14 PM miss0r: 4610g big one...
02:14 PM fragalot: how's the misses? :-)
02:14 PM miss0r: hehe. She is fine. Still somewhat sore
02:15 PM miss0r: But let me tell'ya; None of that quite time we had with the first one when he slept is possible now - because of the first one :D
02:15 PM fragalot: lol
02:16 PM miss0r: well.. I have *some* now. They are all asleep :D
02:16 PM miss0r: So; How is your CNC comming along?
02:17 PM fragalot: you mean how's the cold coming along?
02:17 PM fragalot: well let me tell ya, the horizontal support for the schaublin has 3 holes in it, that fit.. going to do the clamping slot next, and a few bushings after that
02:17 PM fragalot: but today was spent felling my pear tree
02:17 PM * fragalot rambles on
02:17 PM miss0r: I will send you a nicely knitted christmas sweater, if proper clothing is what you need to get done ;D
02:18 PM fragalot: new set of lungs & a throat would be nice
02:18 PM miss0r: meh.. you cought the cold?
02:18 PM miss0r: I thought it was a refrence to the weather :D lol
02:18 PM fragalot: weathers' lovely
02:18 PM fragalot: hasn't really gone below 9°C yet
02:18 PM miss0r: ha...
02:19 PM miss0r: we have sub zero temperatures here most of the time.. We even have some snow clinging to the fields
02:19 PM fragalot: none of that weird business here
02:19 PM miss0r: But warmer weather is comming... I am just hoping for a nasty snow storm, crippling the traffic, so I can take a drive to justify owning the land rover :D
02:20 PM fragalot: lol
02:20 PM fragalot: is it road worthy yet?
02:20 PM miss0r: yeah!
02:20 PM fragalot: (note how I didn't say "again")
02:20 PM miss0r: lol
02:20 PM miss0r: In that case; it is as good as it ever was
02:21 PM miss0r: so.. a bulky tractor on regular license plates
02:21 PM fragalot: but less reliable? :P
02:21 PM miss0r: I took it for a short run in the swampy forrest close to me :) That was quite fun.
02:21 PM fragalot: nice
02:21 PM miss0r: second gear in low range with four wheel drive.. and it just lumbered through
02:22 PM miss0r: Truth be told - it is vastly more comfortable in the forrest than it is on a regular road :D
02:22 PM fragalot: hahah
02:22 PM fragalot: did you bother with a radio?
02:22 PM miss0r: nope
02:22 PM miss0r: you'd need a pretty beefy stereo system to be able to even hear it :D
02:22 PM fragalot: friend of mine did. not sure why
02:23 PM fragalot: yeah :D
02:23 PM fragalot: going over speed bumps is always fun too
02:23 PM miss0r: also, *IF* you managed to outplay the noise of the car with a stereo system, you'd need to turn down the volume regularly to listen for development of new sounds :D
02:23 PM miss0r: you feel every little contour!
02:24 PM fragalot: continuous audio-diagnose system
02:25 PM miss0r: I snapped a photo this morning: https://imgur.com/a/Xu14N2h
02:25 PM fragalot: tow rope, or do you have a winch?
02:25 PM miss0r: tow rope
02:25 PM miss0r: why? why not!
02:26 PM fragalot: can't use those anymore here
02:26 PM miss0r: I just thinks it looks cool :)
02:26 PM fragalot: has to be a rigid bar
02:26 PM miss0r: well.. for dragging someone a distance
02:26 PM miss0r: but for freeing someone from a ditch, it should be fine
02:26 PM fragalot: like in red dead redemption 2?
02:26 PM miss0r: I wouldn't know
02:26 PM fragalot: seen gifs of it where you just lassoo who'mever you want & take them for a ride
02:26 PM miss0r: lol
02:27 PM miss0r: The steering in this is not quite suited for doing a lassoo move.. Unless you are in the passenger seat.
02:27 PM miss0r: You want to keep two hands on the wheel as often as possible
02:27 PM fragalot: I thought they steer themselves
02:27 PM fragalot: (gf: into the nearest ditch)
02:28 PM miss0r: sacrilege!
02:28 PM miss0r: It might be quite true, but is does not go well with my religion :P
02:29 PM miss0r: Theres some strange magic going on with a land rover. somehow it is often colder on the inside than the outside
02:29 PM fragalot: that'd be the galvanic corrosion pulling the heat out of the cabin
02:29 PM CaptHindsight: what shape is it in since they don't rust? Corrosion at the dissimilar metal connections?
02:29 PM HighInBC: huh
02:29 PM fragalot: creating an endothermic reaction
02:30 PM miss0r: and this cold weather is not realy particularly nice driving with a land rover(Even though I would never openly admit it to any locals)
02:30 PM miss0r: The "heater" even struggles to keep the front windows from fogging up
02:30 PM * miss0r slaps fragalot with his fictive corrotion theories
02:30 PM miss0r: CaptHindsight: The chassis frame rust
02:31 PM miss0r: the aluminium is body panels are bolted to steel parts using steel bolts. So there you have dissimilar metal corrotion, as fragalot said
02:31 PM miss0r: But I gave it a good once over, so this is in excellent condition
02:32 PM miss0r: if you don't mind it raining on the inside, the cold drag from the gaping doors and the lack of proper suspension... Then it is great :D
02:32 PM fragalot: don't forget the need for ear plugs
02:33 PM miss0r: its not *that* bad.. But that being said; I have a pair of kids sized ear protectors in there for the kid. He loves driving with me in the land rover, but he is not fund of the noises :D
02:33 PM miss0r: or rather the level of noise
02:33 PM fragalot: adorable. :-)
02:33 PM miss0r: Let me put it this way: Going 80km/h, you cannot tell if I open a window(speaking of sound)
02:34 PM miss0r: fragalot: I'm not even joking: "Do you want to come grocery shopping with me?" "NO!! :-(" "We can go in the land rover!" ... he runs out to find his jacket :D
02:35 PM fragalot: :-)
02:35 PM miss0r: anyway. Tell your girlfriend not to expect me to come drag her out of a blizzard with her attitude towards land rovers :) I have to get going. I might as well see if I can catch some sleep as well. See you around. And if I don't see you be for: Merry christmas ;)
02:36 PM fragalot: cya! Merry christmas to the family that doesn't know me at all too
02:56 PM gloops: yes theres a lot to be said for the british way of doing things
02:57 PM Tom_L: so stupid is on that side of the globe too?
02:57 PM Tom_L: ie the drone thing
02:57 PM fragalot: Tom_L: they invented it. you just imported & refined it
02:57 PM Tom_L: haha
03:03 PM gloops: well, we dont know the motive behind that yet
03:19 PM gloops: i mean like the old landrover
03:19 PM gloops: there was none of that fancy yanky stuff over here
03:22 PM gloops: the germans sneered at our vehicles, but in the right hands they became part of a deadly efficient fighting unit
03:35 PM Deejay: gn8
06:46 PM CaptHindsight: tell me about your welcome
08:02 PM rue_shop1: anyone done lost wax casting?
08:10 PM CaptHindsight: yes
08:14 PM rue_shop1: anyone here?
08:14 PM rue_shop1: :)
08:14 PM XXCoder: no
08:15 PM Tom_L: just watching how you react to silence
08:15 PM CaptHindsight: testing 1 2 3
08:15 PM rue_shop1: hmm :/
08:16 PM XXCoder: isnt it always 3 2 1
08:16 PM rue_shop1: I'm working on my 5th 3d printer, but its gonna be for, amongst other things, wax
08:16 PM CaptHindsight: depends on what you are testing
08:16 PM rue_shop1: so I need to get with lost wax casting, my dad passed away before we could do some
08:16 PM CaptHindsight: bombs, 3 2 1, microphones 1 2 3
08:18 PM Tom_L: what sort of wax do you use for it?
08:18 PM rue_shop1: it'll likley be parifin for predicable melting point
08:18 PM Tom_L: not that blue machinable wax probably...
08:19 PM CaptHindsight: are you extruding wax or polymerizing a wax oligomer composite?
08:19 PM rue_shop1: tho, once I work it out, I'll probably start melting all the liquidation candles from the thrift store and print with anything
08:19 PM rue_shop1: extruding the wax
08:19 PM rue_shop1: "warm"
08:20 PM CaptHindsight: what investment are you working with?
08:21 PM CaptHindsight: (investment material)
08:21 PM rue_shop1: NOT plaster of paris! that did NOT work out!!!
08:21 PM rue_shop1: too much sulfur from what I can work out
08:21 PM rue_shop1: (that was some BAD smelling aluminum)
08:21 PM CaptHindsight: I use plasticast
08:22 PM rue_shop1: awesome, what kinda shop sells it!
08:22 PM Tom_L: https://www.romanoff.com/ransom-randolph-plasticast-investment-40lb-bliss-box.html/
08:22 PM Tom_L: one
08:23 PM rue_shop1: $1/lb hmm
08:23 PM Tom_L: https://www.riogrande.com/content/plasticast-investment-is-pdf
08:23 PM Tom_L: maybe helpful... who knows
08:23 PM CaptHindsight: I make patterns with a water soluble resin and SLA and inkjet printers
08:23 PM rue_shop1: I suspect they dont ship to canada tho eh?
08:24 PM rue_shop1: that sounds expensive
08:24 PM Tom_L: https://www.gesswein.com/p-11026-rr-plasticast-with-bandust-50-lb.aspx
08:24 PM Tom_L: same stuff different supplier
08:25 PM CaptHindsight: https://www.gessweincanada.com/product-p/260-4097.htm
08:25 PM rue_shop1: $77 cad
08:25 PM Tom_L: sucks to be canadian ehh?
08:25 PM rue_shop1: sucks to be an earthling too!
08:26 PM CaptHindsight: https://www.ransom-randolph.com/
08:26 PM Tom_L: :)
08:26 PM rue_shop1: but hey, you get what you roll!
08:26 PM CaptHindsight: which metals do you want to cast?
08:26 PM Tom_L: probably aluminum
08:26 PM rue_shop1: well definitly aluminum
08:26 PM rue_shop1: I dont know what else I can do with the temps I can attain
08:27 PM rue_shop1: I have to say, PLA gets pretty soupie around 200c
08:27 PM rue_shop1: but I want to work with the wax
08:27 PM CaptHindsight: you can also make sand molds using binder and sand
08:28 PM XXCoder: alum 660c
08:28 PM rue_shop1: what I HAVE done, is (ok two things) plaster of paris backed with sand
08:29 PM rue_shop1: and I made some green sand (ground down bentonite clay, sand, some crushed glass, and water)
08:29 PM CaptHindsight: lost foam casting is another idea
08:29 PM rue_shop1: it sucks
08:29 PM rue_shop1: (been there)
08:29 PM CaptHindsight: what happened to you?
08:29 PM rue_shop1: but I'm making this new printer and want to try the wax thing
08:30 PM rue_shop1: well, the finish isn't that great, and I origionally attributed the horrid smell to the foam and not the plaster
08:30 PM rue_shop1: it comes out looking like foam
08:30 PM rue_shop1: (yea I used the blue stuff too)
08:31 PM rue_shop1: one of the good questions is what kinda casting I can do with a sugar positive
08:32 PM rue_shop1: (3d print sugar thing, case in investment, use water to get the sugar out...)
08:32 PM rue_shop1: I know what I can do with 3d printed chocolate stuff, and I'm sure everyone is willing to help
08:32 PM rue_shop1: its gonna be fun, thats for sure
08:33 PM rue_shop1: do you know how much temp the plasticast can take?
08:33 PM rue_shop1: ah 760c
08:33 PM rue_shop1: ok, so no brass
08:33 PM rue_shop1: tho, last time I tried to melt down brass, it seperated and disintegrated

08:39 PM rue_shop1: hmm, casting glass....
08:40 PM rue_shop1: hmm, this looks like its hard to pull off without having someone to charge a lot of money for

08:41 PM flyback: how you been?
08:48 PM rue_shop1: alive
08:48 PM rue_shop1: its winter, I'm depressed
08:49 PM rue_shop1: I'll be more depressed when I'm 2000 years old and there is nobody left alive, so I have to learn to not let it get me down
08:50 PM rue_shop1: getting the 4th printer running is helping me out tho
08:50 PM rue_shop1: one more printer and I'm done
08:50 PM rue_shop1: and by next year I should have the new cnc working too
08:53 PM rue_shop1: a machine that prints chocolate will be nice, I can eat the screwups
08:53 PM rue_shop1: (in a different way than I eat them now)
08:53 PM rue_shop1: Tom_L, you need to start milling chocolate!
09:04 PM Tom_L: heh
