02:58 AM veegee: Guys, I've finally found an industrial unit for my metalworking hobby
03:04 AM veegee: I can finally set up a workshop with my vertical mill, router, huge air compressor, etc.
03:04 AM XXCoder: nice
03:04 AM sensille: grats
03:04 AM veegee: One problem, the garage door is at truck level, not grade level, so I need a ramp to drive my car inside to work on it
03:04 AM veegee: I don't mind building it myself since I can weld pretty well now
03:04 AM veegee: But I'm sure there are ramps exactly for this purpose. I have no idea where to get one though
03:04 AM XXCoder: semi level or regular truck?
03:04 AM veegee: Let me link you to a video of the unit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JngB7bScZ1c&feature=youtu.be
03:04 AM veegee: I took that on my shitty iPhone 11 max
03:04 AM veegee: iphone 11 pro or whatever
03:04 AM veegee: forgot to bring my Sony A7R III that day
03:04 AM XXCoder: heh "shitty" "iphone" is a repeat ;)
03:04 AM veegee: the cameras on cell phones can't handle low light well, obviously, because the sensor is tiny
03:05 AM XXCoder: may i ask how muchs rent
03:05 AM veegee: $11/sq•ft including TMI
03:06 AM veegee: sharing with a friend who wants to do the same things. Advantage of sharing tools as well
03:06 AM XXCoder: 35k a month?
03:07 AM veegee: that's yearly cost
03:07 AM XXCoder: ahh
03:07 AM XXCoder: 3k not too bad
03:07 AM veegee: yeah split in half since sharing with friend
03:07 AM veegee: and using it as a living space too
03:08 AM XXCoder: moving in there?
03:08 AM veegee: That idiotic concrete block in front of the garage door looks like it's 4 and a half cinder blocks high
03:08 AM veegee: Yeah
03:09 AM veegee: I can climb that like it were one large step
03:09 AM XXCoder: it looks like might be regular truck height
03:09 AM XXCoder: semi is bit hard to get up over heh
03:10 AM veegee: I guess we'll have to cut that concrete block in half diagonally so it forms a ramp
03:10 AM XXCoder: or make a car lifter
03:10 AM veegee: For my Jeep and motorcycle, totally fine. But I have to fix my father's car too and not sure if that's too steep. That's why I might need loading ramps for cars with low ground clearance
03:14 AM veegee: Damn, all the industrial ones are expensive. I can build it myself for way less than that
03:14 AM XXCoder: prices can get nuts
03:14 AM XXCoder: we need to fix sewer here, and was quoted 7000 bucks to dig hole and fix one hole
03:14 AM XXCoder: not replacement
03:14 AM XXCoder: just poatch hole
03:15 AM XXCoder: i said flip that and we are thinking on fixing it ourselves
03:15 AM veegee: Yeah not even going to try and find a contractor to cut the concrete block
03:16 AM veegee: I'm just going to do it myself with a concrete saw
03:17 AM XXCoder: cool :)
03:41 AM selroc: hello, when I set DISPLAY = pyvcp , gives an error on launch: option -i not recognized
03:51 AM selroc: which file specifies this option?
05:22 AM Deejay: hi
05:25 AM * Loetmichel just has tears of laughter in my eyes... watching a video about equipment repair... he is changing the oil filter... *FART* "a bit more choke and that would have started!" -> instant ROFL
