12:07 PM Tom_L: surprised the torque didn't flip it over :D
12:07 PM jymmmm: Maybe it had todo with all the cider blocks in the back end to give it some weight =)
12:09 PM Loetmichel: hrhr
12:10 PM Loetmichel: best i have ever sat (as a passenger) was the "sleeper" VW bug of my uncle with the porsche 911 engine in it
12:11 PM Tom_L: i've seen one with a 912 in it
12:11 PM Loetmichel: looked original from the outside... but had a front trunk cast full of concrete so it doesent do wheelies all the time ;)
12:12 PM Loetmichel: Tom_L: i never knew porsche made a 912 model
12:12 PM Loetmichel: you learn something new every day ;)
12:13 PM Tom_L: err maybe i'm thinking of the 256
12:13 PM Tom_L: it was a 4 cyl
12:13 PM Tom_L: wasn't the 912 a box?
12:13 PM Tom_L: caught fire...
12:13 PM Tom_L: leaky injectors
12:14 PM Tom_L: no that wasn't it...
12:14 PM Tom_L: https://assets.hemmings.com/blog/wp-content/uploads//2018/08/618218.jpg
12:15 PM Tom_L: the 914 was the fire box
12:15 PM Tom_L: https://d32c3oe4bky4k6.cloudfront.net/-/media/uscamediasite/images/story-images/2016/6/1970-porsche-914-4_bonhams.ashx?modified=20170725120811
12:16 PM Loetmichel: Tom_L: anyways: 210HP in a VW bug makes for an "interesting" drive
12:17 PM Tom_L: yeah i'm sure
12:17 PM Tom_L: that little 4 cyl was a nice engine though
12:34 PM jymmmm: Light a fire with a 100K lumen flashlight... https://youtu.be/vNYomB7kdI8?t=1070
12:40 PM jymmmm: WTF?! https://www.reddit.com/r/Whatcouldgowrong/comments/g0tv0m/pointing_a_gun_at_a_friend_in_a_firing_range_with/
12:49 PM XXCoder: fast reaction by worker. good
12:50 PM XXCoder: i wonder when that happened because thats a crowd
12:51 PM XXCoder: "Most recent data puts it at under 500 fatalities in a year, which is very low. There are more than 6 times that number of people killed by car crashes in the USA every DAY as fatal gun accidents in a year"
12:51 PM jymmmm: the video was posted 18 hours ago
12:51 PM XXCoder: well yeah it doesnt mean it was recorded recently ;)

01:16 PM Loetmichel: miss0r: until the next windy day ;)
01:29 PM SpeedEvil: Tie roof to floor, and make sure you park car in while windy
01:55 PM MacGalempsy: hey guys
01:56 PM Tom_L: hey
01:59 PM jymmmm: IRS sends you $8.3M, what do you do?
01:59 PM XXCoder: return it
02:00 PM XXCoder: though it may take months.
02:00 PM XXCoder: last time I had to return money it took me months
02:00 PM XXCoder: they kept losing records and such. so annoying
02:01 PM jymmmm: What amount why you say "fuck it" take the money and run to another country?
02:01 PM jymmmm: would*
02:01 PM XXCoder: considering my lack of running skills, probably infinite lol
02:02 PM jymmmm: $8M in mexico would last you forever and live very comfortably
02:02 PM jymmmm: Imagine just living off the interest alone
02:02 PM XXCoder: lol
02:03 PM Tom_L: cash it in a bank in cayman islands
02:03 PM jymmmm: Tom_L where would you live though?
02:03 PM Tom_L: europe
02:04 PM jymmmm: Is it cheap to live in EU ?
02:04 PM Tom_L: no
02:04 PM jymmmm: South America?
02:04 PM Tom_L: too hot
02:05 PM jymmmm: Not africa
02:05 PM jymmmm: Asia is WAY too humid
02:05 PM jymmmm: Australia?
02:05 PM Tom_L: hell no
02:05 PM Tom_L: everything there is out to kill you
02:05 PM jymmmm: HAHAHA, top ten deadliest things come from AU =)
02:07 PM jymmmm: There are some nice places in MX
02:14 PM skunkworks: somewhere wihout an extradition treaty
02:15 PM miss0r: Loetmichel: Nah, I will(would've) ancored it properly
02:15 PM miss0r: Seeing what I had planned my neighbour from across the street suddenly remembered offering me to purchase a used garage tent...
02:16 PM miss0r: Apparently he felt he was going to have to look at an abomination for the forseeable future if he did not act :)
02:16 PM jymmmm: skunkworks: Would you be gone for $8.3M ?
02:16 PM miss0r: Tomorrow I will know if it is for sale
02:29 PM Tom_L: jymmmm, would you?
02:30 PM jymmmm: Tom_L $8.3M seems a bit low, not sure
02:31 PM Tom_L: what's a good number?
02:31 PM jymmmm: $20M
02:31 PM Tom_L: get a boat and live on the sea
02:32 PM jymmmm: I used to repair ATM machines, had access to $2M Cash daily all by myself, didn't even think about it. FAR FAR too little.
02:34 PM jymmmm: gotta hit shore soemtime
02:34 PM Loetmichel: miss0r: anchoring doesent help if the tarps rip and fly off ;)
02:35 PM miss0r: Loetmichel: Hear hear. For once I have opted for the good quality reinforced version :)
02:36 PM * Loetmichel has seen his convertible lift off slightly and move about 6 feet sideways.
02:36 PM Loetmichel: the tarp i had put over the damaged roof was anchored well... to the car
02:36 PM Loetmichel: slight misjudgement on my part ;)
02:37 PM Loetmichel: if you see a 1.5 ton vehicle move with a "handkerchief parachute" over it you get slightly worried
02:37 PM Loetmichel: and yes, the tarp didnt rip off. Surprisingly ;)
02:38 PM Loetmichel: s/over/above
02:54 PM miss0r: Loetmichel: Damn
02:55 PM miss0r: Loetmichel: I was planning on hammering 8 ancors into the ground. Something like 20mm rebar 1 meter into the ground
02:55 PM miss0r: four on each side
02:55 PM Tom_L: screw anchors
02:57 PM miss0r: I've comtemplated using those pole drills (hand held ones) like this: https://www.primusdanmark.dk/paelebor/1177-plebor-100-mm-kraftig-haandmodel.html?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIvL_lv9no6AIVR-aaCh1ChQ7cEAQYBCABEgL9HfD_BwE
02:57 PM miss0r: and have the handle be detachable, so you could screw in a fixing for a rope instead
02:57 PM Tom_L: https://www.amazon.com/Gray-Bunny-GB-6873A-Trampoline-Powder-Coated/dp/B07H2NGW79/ref=psdc_3742371_t3_B07FSBR41F
02:57 PM miss0r: i.e. screw it into the ground, remove the handle & mount a rope
02:58 PM miss0r: I like mine better :P
02:58 PM miss0r: I guess that is called an auger?
02:58 PM Tom_L: auger will disrupt the ground more than the screw
02:59 PM miss0r: that would fall under the category of "meh"
02:59 PM Tom_L: agreed
02:59 PM miss0r: My whole front year is going to be a project at some point
02:59 PM miss0r: I am planning on making a well sized garage for four cars
02:59 PM miss0r: my company car, the wifeys car and my two land rovers :D
03:00 PM miss0r: The issue is that it needs to fit the newest addition to the family.. the 101 forward control: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Land_Rover_101_Forward_Control#/media/File:Land_Rover_101_Forward_Control_2.jpeg
03:00 PM miss0r: Its a tall beast
03:08 PM Loetmichel: Tom_L: missor: depends on the ground
03:08 PM Loetmichel: in sand toms solution is better
03:09 PM Loetmichel: in rocky soil with much clay the rebar is better
03:19 PM FinboySlick: miss0r: Obvious solution, anchor it to the land rover ;)
03:20 PM miss0r: FinboySlick: Hehe yeah.. But I am going to work on it inside the tent
03:20 PM miss0r: that is the whole idea. I don't want to be tripping over straps running underneath it while trying to rewire the thing
03:22 PM FinboySlick: It's a beautiful machine, btw. You restoring it or keeping the 'patina'?
03:23 PM FinboySlick: Oh duh, that one isn't specifically yours.
03:25 PM Choscurano is now known as Choscura
03:25 PM miss0r: FinboySlick: These two are my land rovers: https://imgur.com/a/H2s3SZH
03:25 PM miss0r: FinboySlick: I have the model with the radio body
03:25 PM miss0r: so alu shell all around
03:26 PM miss0r: And I will be restoring it to its former glory
03:26 PM miss0r: Patina it will get over time, don't worrie about that ;)
03:26 PM FinboySlick: Next best thing to a unimog ;)
03:27 PM FinboySlick: Though the new ones somehow managed to be even more ugly than the old ones.
03:27 PM miss0r: indeed
03:28 PM miss0r: I actualy considered getting an unimog instead of that 101" land rover. But then I decided that I love land rovers
03:28 PM FinboySlick: I have a feeling they have more personality.
03:29 PM miss0r: the land rovers? Indeed
03:29 PM miss0r: But one cannot own a land rover and be happy in life without the ability to laugh at yourself
03:29 PM FinboySlick: If I became a millionaire of sorts, I'd think I'd treat myself to a Legacy Classic Trucks Power Wagon restoration.
03:30 PM miss0r: We all have our flaws... :)
03:31 PM miss0r: "When the engineers had to design the first land rover, they started with a clean workshop floor, poured two liters of engine oil on it and build their way up from there"
03:33 PM miss0r: and the one about the land rover engineers visiting a japanese car plant to see how they did things; The japanese told the visitors that to test their car designs for air/water tightness, they would seal up the vents, and put five cats in the car over night. Then they would expect to come in the next day and find the cats have sufficated
03:34 PM miss0r: The land rover engineers took the idea home. They sealed up the vents of a series three land rover, and put 5 cats in it. When they came back the next day they were surprised to find that the cats were gone
03:34 PM miss0r: :)
03:34 PM Loetmichel: miss0r: landrover is no comparsion to tatra
03:34 PM Loetmichel: we had two 813 colossus.
03:34 PM miss0r: Loetmichel: I like to think of the land rover as a middle road :)
03:35 PM Loetmichel: those 17.5L v12 were leaking when new
03:35 PM miss0r: Also land rovers last a realy long time, because of their patented "outside sling lubrication"(R) that prevents rust from forming on the chassis :P
03:35 PM Loetmichel: we once disassembled one completely, used hylomar and similar products on EVERY sealing surfaces (in addition to new gaskets).... started the engine had had half a liter of oil on the floor in mere minutes
03:36 PM miss0r: hahaha yeah
03:37 PM miss0r: as much as I enjoy slandering old cars, I need to get some shut eye. See you around
03:44 PM FinboySlick: Loetmichel: Those are all clearance gaps ;)
05:29 PM JT-Shop: taxes done, tomatoes wrapped up all nice and snug with a night light to keep warm, hoses drained
05:29 PM * JT-Shop is ready for 32°F tonight... I think
05:39 PM jymmmm: JT-Shop Your cannon is no match... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_dYVtQLPjgk
05:41 PM FinboySlick: JT-Shop: So um.. Is it the warm, fuzzy feeling of having done your taxes that helps you with the cold?
06:06 PM jthornton: FinboySlick, it's a warm fuzzy feeling to know the tomato plants you kept alive all winter are safe from the frost
06:07 PM jthornton: jymmmm, what a POS
06:08 PM jymmmm: jthornton: I think that's giving shit a bad name
06:09 PM * jthornton should shoot some tracers one night from the M1 Garand
06:10 PM jymmmm: jthornton: I thought it might jsut be fun to play around with, but that was really bad
06:10 PM jymmmm: I'd have more fun making bottle rockets from visco fuse and some bamboo sckewers
06:10 PM jthornton: what I like about the M1 is how balanced it is, you can stand up and shoot 300 yards and hit a head sized target
06:11 PM jthornton: more fun tossing cats in the pool when they stink
06:11 PM jymmmm: Nice, you have soem tracer rounds?
06:11 PM jthornton: a few
06:13 PM jymmmm: Now these look cool, but I didn't see what he used for the fuel pen rockets https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nzKpPZW7Aco
06:13 PM jthornton: damn I'm tired... going to the store at 6am and working till 6pm adds another hour to my busy day
06:14 PM jymmmm: jthornton: every 3 weeks?
06:14 PM jthornton: Walmart if they are still doing senior day in 3 weeks yea
06:14 PM jymmmm: I hit 5 stores yesterday, was exhausted by the time I got done, and only ONE had TP
06:15 PM jthornton: I don't even go down the TP aisle
06:15 PM jymmmm: stocked up?
06:15 PM jthornton: aye
06:15 PM jthornton: using the crap paper first
06:15 PM jymmmm: I heard costco has supply now, but I'm not a member
06:16 PM jymmmm: the crap crap paper? lol
06:16 PM jthornton: stupid people are buying chicks like crazy, poor chicks
06:17 PM jymmmm: zinc poweder and sulfur rocket fuel.
06:17 PM jymmmm: jthornton: and no feed I'm guessing
06:18 PM jymmmm: do you have a rooster?
06:18 PM jthornton: no knowledge or experience so they will suffer
06:18 PM jthornton: no rooster, they are not needed for what I do
06:20 PM jthornton: I sure hope I don't have trouble giving away 5 dozen eggs a week in 6 months
06:20 PM Tom_L: heh
06:20 PM jymmmm: jthornton: bakers need lots of eggs
06:21 PM jymmmm: bakery's
06:21 PM jthornton: they can't use eggs that are not store bought
06:21 PM jymmmm: Queche, lots of queche
06:21 PM jymmmm: ah
06:22 PM Tom_L: yeah those chicks gotta have a FDA stamp of approval on their arse
06:24 PM jthornton: probably so lol
06:24 PM Tom_L: contemplated milling one of these but not sure where to start: https://www.illusionsindex.org/images/illusions/impossible-trident/Impossible-Trident.jpg
06:25 PM jthornton: hmm, a brain teaser for sure
06:25 PM jthornton: maybe your boy can cad that up
06:26 PM Tom_L: heh you can draw it but that's about it
06:27 PM jthornton: you can do some pretty neat illusions with different colors of wood
06:28 PM jthornton: looks like tomorrow night is the last night I need to cover the tomatoes up
06:29 PM jthornton: the Big Boys have started to put on tomatoes
06:29 PM Tom_L: says 35 for the low here then it starts gradually warming a bit
06:29 PM jthornton: we are 33°F tonight
06:31 PM Tom_L: https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0496/0085/products/61uTMVDkgfL._SL1500.jpg?v=1527672078
06:32 PM Tom_L: made one of those in HS but mine was a giraffe neck
06:32 PM jthornton: be better if the ring was steam bent
06:44 PM Tom_L: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O8ck-QRe_ag
06:44 PM Tom_L: did that one also
06:44 PM Tom_L: couldn't find an image so i'll give away the solution
06:47 PM Tom_L: https://www.creativecrafthouse.com/pub/media/catalog/product/cache/c687aa7517cf01e65c009f6943c2b1e9/d/o/double_square_wood_brain_teaser_puzzle_4.jpeg
06:47 PM Tom_L: soon as i said that...
07:04 PM _unreal_: sup
07:04 PM _unreal_: So my friend is welding my motor controller box tonight !!
07:05 PM _unreal_: or so he says if so then I'll be able to get it tomorrow
07:05 PM _unreal_: then I get to cut all my holes in it
07:05 PM _unreal_: Question for you guys
07:05 PM _unreal_: I will have a box that is 12" wide I believe? by 8x6
07:05 PM _unreal_: solid metal
07:07 PM _unreal_: Its just going to have the heat sink mounted on the outside and holes cut for the pre heat sink metal plates that are attached to the
07:07 PM _unreal_: pcb's
07:10 PM SpeedEvil: welding out of Al?
07:19 PM Tom_L: i mounted my drivers/heatsink to the door facing in so the fan would blow across the heatsink
07:20 PM Tom_L: http://tom-itx.no-ip.biz:81/~webpage/rue/Control1.jpg
07:53 PM Rab: _unreal_, solid metal would be a cube, not a box. ;)
07:53 PM Rab: _unreal_, what was your question?
08:21 PM pink_vampire: Tom_L: look nice!
08:24 PM Tom_L: those aren't mine but examples of ones i did years ago
09:24 PM _unreal_: rab high sorry phone call, dinner other....
09:24 PM _unreal_: SOOO
09:24 PM _unreal_: the question is how should I route my wires into this box? should I get X number of pin connectors? like pinned barrel connectors?
09:25 PM _unreal_: should I just get a wire chase what ever its called the one on the side of electric panels to clamp/hold wires in place
09:25 PM _unreal_: currently I have 3' of lead wire coming off of the machine for 90% of the wires.
09:25 PM _unreal_: I'll take my answer off air ;)
09:33 PM infornography: Yeah, smoke tested a SLA7078...
09:33 PM Rab: _unreal_, I like connectors, but they can be another point of failure. Maybe after everything's working and your wiring is finalized. Chase nipple + cable clamp is usually what you see on electrical panels, but search for 'cable gland' and see if that's what you have in mind.
09:34 PM Rab: infornography, test passed?
09:34 PM infornography: magic smoke successfully released
09:35 PM infornography: already replaced it, working now
