02:25 AM Deejay: moin
02:32 AM XXCoder: hey unterhaus
02:32 AM XXCoder: unterhaus_:
03:06 AM veegee: Is there any decent simple test for the relative sharpness of a blade?
03:06 AM XXCoder: paper cut
03:06 AM XXCoder: honestly dunno
03:06 AM veegee: I've gotten good enough at knife sharpening to turn a $5 pocket knife into something I can shave with
03:07 AM veegee: But I want to do relative tests with different fine grit sharpening stones
03:07 AM veegee: I have 2000 grit sapphire stones but I think they might be making it worse than just leaving it at the 1000 grit ceramic
03:08 AM XXCoder: you should get 30,000 one
03:08 AM XXCoder: like that japanese guy who makes random knives materials
03:13 AM XXCoder: he stopped making videos. i miss those :(
03:14 AM XXCoder: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCg3qsVzHeUt5_cPpcRtoaJQ this channel
03:40 AM veegee: I need to buy my dream classic cars
03:40 AM veegee: 1970 challenger, 1970 olds 442
03:41 AM veegee: https://64.media.tumblr.com/9251e3b52d72ebb9a6842e67f0f18cf8/tumblr_nkd1pnFd001u0mlr6o1_640.jpg
03:41 AM veegee: Look at that
03:41 AM veegee: Absolutely beautiful
03:42 AM XXCoder: vee after batteries get really powerful, I hope they start to ignore airflow effects and design for looks rather than airflow
03:43 AM veegee: I highly doubt that's going to happen
03:43 AM XXCoder: sure it will
03:43 AM veegee: And it's the energy density, not power
03:43 AM veegee: Either way, I need to buy a proper dually ford f450 first :(
03:43 AM XXCoder: well yeah. im just using regular words not enginner ones :)
03:43 AM veegee: I have a F550 with a crane on it, but it's too big for everyday use
03:44 AM veegee: the kids these days don't know anything about nice cars
03:44 AM veegee: they put spoilers on shitty ricers
03:44 AM veegee: they listen to really shitty music
03:45 AM veegee: I have no faith their taste in car design
03:45 AM XXCoder: hurry up and invent 50 pound battery that can give car a 2,000 mile range :)
03:45 AM veegee: we have something like that already - nuclear
03:45 AM veegee: but the general public is too fucking stupid and evil to be trusted
03:46 AM veegee: you can bet your ass some religious fuckwad will try to jihad a plane or something
03:46 AM XXCoder: nuclear.. well issue is afterwards
03:46 AM veegee: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radioisotope_thermoelectric_generator that's all you need
03:47 AM XXCoder: you need to take care of waste for far longer than recent civilizations have existed
04:00 AM XXCoder: https://youtu.be/HxfZSEboVM4
04:01 AM XXCoder: its pretty sad to see all those people exposed
06:01 AM JT-Cave: morning
06:24 AM Tom_L: morning
07:31 AM JT-Cave: Lcvette, https://forum.linuxcnc.org/qtpyvcp/42292-after-probe-basic-dev-upgr-tkaxisactor-number-of-labels-2147483647-is-invalid#206291

02:21 PM roycroft: i just got my second jab
02:21 PM roycroft: that is awesome
02:22 PM roycroft: except it may cost me my job if my boss finds out
02:28 PM Rab: roycroft, how's that? And congrats!
02:29 PM roycroft: thanks
02:29 PM roycroft: and it's because the "bill gates tracking chip" has now become the "bill gates government spy chip"
02:30 PM roycroft: and he won't allow anyone who has had the vaccine in the office, because he doesn't want the government spying on him
02:30 PM Rab: Did he know about your first shot?
02:30 PM roycroft: no
02:30 PM roycroft: he has no right to know that
02:30 PM Rab: Indeed.
02:30 PM roycroft: even though he has demanded to be tol
02:31 PM roycroft: hippa regulations do not allow him to ask anything about it
02:31 PM Rab: Now you can take your mask off, and he'll think you're a hero.
02:31 PM roycroft: no, i can't take my mask off
02:31 PM roycroft: not until the pandemic is over
02:32 PM roycroft: but not one person has died from covid-19 after getting both doses
02:32 PM roycroft: and i'm about 100% certain not to need to go to hospital if i get covid-19
02:32 PM roycroft: i may still be able to transmit it
02:32 PM Rab: Yes, the data coming in seems to have moved from "hopeful" to "pretty damn good".
02:33 PM roycroft: and i especially would want to wear the mask if i were in a place where there were known anti-vaxers
02:33 PM Rab: I believe transmission is looking unlikely as well, but it might be early not to err on the safe side.
02:33 PM roycroft: i would not want transmtting it to them to be on my conscience
02:34 PM Tom_L: roycroft, btw.. it's not Bill Gates, it's Google
02:34 PM roycroft: yes, the data indicate that at the very least, transmissiblity is much lower after being vaccinated
02:34 PM roycroft: well my boss is convinced that it's bill gates
02:34 PM roycroft: and somehow "bill gates" = "the government"
02:34 PM Tom_L: tell him you heard it was google
02:34 PM Tom_L: see what he does
02:35 PM roycroft: i do my best to avoid discussing such things with him
02:35 PM Tom_L: you don't like that can-o-worms?
02:36 PM roycroft: i'm old enough to know when a battle is worth picking and when it's best avoided
02:36 PM Tom_L: :)
02:36 PM roycroft: i don't always listen to myself, but i do when it comes to dealings with my boss
02:41 PM roycroft: and now i need to get back to sanding
02:42 PM roycroft: hopefully i won't have too strong a reaction to the vaccine - i have a lot to do today
03:03 PM Rab: Many don't. My wife had no reaction both times other than a sore arm (Pfizer).
03:07 PM -!- #linuxcnc mode set to +v by ChanServ
03:08 PM roycroft: 10-15% have a strong reaction to the second dose
03:08 PM roycroft: and i got pfizered
03:11 PM roycroft: my contingency plan is that if i start feeling a strong reaction, i have a bunch of cad work to catch up on
03:11 PM roycroft: i can put the woodworking project away and do the cad work
03:18 PM pcw_home: I had nothing sore arm on the first does but had a fever and general soreness a day after the second dose (moderna)
03:40 PM Tom_L: i'm wondering if left or right arm is best
03:40 PM Tom_L: trying to figure which one i need most if there's a reaction to the 2nd one
03:40 PM Tom_L: ok. juice spill... 2 clean keyboards now
03:56 PM roycroft: my right arm is my dominant one
03:56 PM roycroft: i chose the left arm in part because of that
03:56 PM roycroft: as well, it's a drive-through vaccination spot
03:57 PM roycroft: and my vehicle is left hand drive
03:57 PM roycroft: so it's easy for them to open the door and do the jab without having to reach around
03:58 PM roycroft: i just had a guy come to check out the shrinker-stretcher i had for sale
03:58 PM roycroft: i told him in email and i told him over the phone that my price was firm
03:58 PM roycroft: so he offered me $50 less anyway, and i refused
03:58 PM roycroft: he got pissed off, drove away, then came back 5 minutes later and gave me my asking price
03:59 PM XXCoder: lol
03:59 PM roycroft: it's a cultural thing, i think
03:59 PM roycroft: some folks think that haggling is a necessary part of cl sales
04:00 PM roycroft: and i'm sometimes open to that, but other times i come up with a fair price and stand firm
04:00 PM XXCoder: haggling have been around for virually entire monied history of humans
04:00 PM XXCoder: unable to haggle in stores is recent thing
04:00 PM roycroft: sure
04:00 PM roycroft: and up until i say "the price is firm" i'm open to haggling
04:01 PM XXCoder: yeah i guess for people that means "he wants higher price"
04:01 PM roycroft: i just don't have time to play games
04:01 PM XXCoder: not "that exact price"
04:01 PM Tom_L: you should have said it's $50 more now
04:01 PM roycroft: if i want $500 for something i can either list it at $600 and spend a bunch of time haggling, or list it as "$500 firm"
04:02 PM roycroft: i got what i needed
04:02 PM XXCoder: "$50 fee if you try to haggle"
04:02 PM roycroft: oh well, that thing is gone now
04:02 PM roycroft: it did not occupy much space, which is another reason i was unwilling to haggle
04:02 PM Tom_L: mechanic's have a set fee
04:02 PM Tom_L: and a fee if you watch
04:02 PM Tom_L: and another fee if you help
04:03 PM XXCoder: lol
04:03 PM roycroft: while real estate is valuable to me, this thing took up a very small amount of real estate
04:03 PM roycroft: so i could afford to hang on to it for a while
04:03 PM roycroft: i'm feeling slightly light-headed at the moment, but i think that's more from working out in the sun than from the vaccine
04:04 PM roycroft: i'll drink some water, put on a hat with a wide brim, and get back out to work
04:04 PM roycroft: i'm just using my drum sander at the moment - not a particularly dangerous machine
04:04 PM XXCoder: i need to get bicycle fixed
04:04 PM XXCoder: start exercisinbg

04:08 PM JT-Cave: you should fix the bicycle yourself, they are not hard to work on

05:15 PM drdoc: Tom_L: thanks! but I decided to dtrt and spend $20 on proper bus bars
05:16 PM drdoc: roycroft: I was literally raised to haggle,
05:16 PM drdoc: but "$XXX firm" means $XXX firm. Pay it or go away.
05:17 PM JT-Cave: Frank if you don't agalhay they won't esptray you
05:17 PM XXCoder: wha
05:19 PM JT-Cave: M.A.S.H.
05:20 PM XXCoder: ahh ok
05:20 PM JT-Cave: Frank and Margret trying to get Potters birthday present
05:21 PM JT-Cave: I wish there was some Python guru's on here
05:24 PM Tom_L: JT-Cave, i thought that be you
05:25 PM JT-Cave: usually but sometimes I get stuck for a day or three on something tricky

07:21 PM veegee: This makes me very sad https://imgbox.com/uphh7CK0
07:21 PM veegee: and https://imgbox.com/btX7eSzJ
07:21 PM veegee: excellent show though
07:22 PM veegee: could have skipped the nonsense and just used millimetres, ya know?
07:22 PM veegee: I guess they love to get 'em while they're young over there
07:23 PM veegee: brainwash 'em with a little christianity and creationism while they're at it
07:26 PM -!- #linuxcnc mode set to +v by ChanServ
07:46 PM CaptHindsight: 1/2, 1/4 or 1/8 mm?
07:59 PM veegee: CaptHindsight just single millimetres will be fine, thank you!
07:59 PM veegee: It really is an excellent show
08:00 PM veegee: I'm starting to feel it's on par with, or even better than, Breaking Bad
08:00 PM veegee: I used to hate Saul Goodman in Breaking Bad for his slimy character, but after getting about a third of the way through this series, I absolutely love him
08:03 PM veegee: I love Kim's character too
08:03 PM veegee: damn, I wish I had a girlfriend who was as smart as that and had my back. A literal partner in crime
08:24 PM XXCoder: https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/749283134893457459/833510176585547776/173939851_1060482094477838_8156196522976067431_n.png?width=610&height=593
08:24 PM XXCoder: of course. wood is expensive now
08:27 PM roycroft: yeah, and i have a lot of woodworking projects coming up
08:28 PM veegee: Well grab an axe
08:28 PM veegee: There are trees everywhere
08:28 PM roycroft: sadly, i have to grab a credit card instead
08:28 PM veegee: Personally I'd much rather use a chainsaw. An axe is such a horribly inefficient tool
08:29 PM XXCoder: trees dont instantly turn into 4x8 feet panels ;)
08:30 PM roycroft: construction lumber is what has gone up the most
08:30 PM roycroft: and i don't use too much of that
08:30 PM roycroft: i did have to buy some fir 2x2s for this gazebo project, and they cost double what they did last year
08:31 PM roycroft: but i'm also using some cedar fencing boards for the project, and they've "only" gone up about 50%
08:31 PM roycroft: i'm saving money by buying lower grade, fairly rough boards and milling them myself
08:32 PM roycroft: that costs a lot more time, but it keeps the out of pocket expense down
08:53 PM XXCoder: globe map maker!
08:53 PM XXCoder: https://youtu.be/26DKFLVJKIM
08:53 PM XXCoder: seems its becoming a lost art
09:16 PM roycroft: americans are not interested in geography any more
09:16 PM roycroft: we only learn where another country is when we invade it
09:16 PM roycroft: and even then most people don't know where we invaded or why
09:20 PM Bleepshop: How do I get the damn DRO to swap from metric to imperial and back?
09:21 PM Bleepshop: It keeps swapping to metric when I load a file and screwing me up on my mental math for offsets.
09:36 PM cradek: In AXIS you can toggle it with the ! keyboard shortcut, or the menu. It never changes on its own.
11:11 PM _unreal_: look what I just ordered https://www.ebay.com/itm/Virgin-Webplayer-Internet-Appliance-with-128MB-RAM-and-10-100-NIC-built-in/294104557999?hash=item4479ff69af:g:cmkAAOSw~ctgawwa&autorefresh=true
11:11 PM _unreal_: I never thought I would come across one of those
