I will blog about it at some point, I promise.

Thought this needs an update.
I'm mostly tinkering with 3D printers, raspberry Pi and electronics. Python programmer by day and sometimes by night too.
I'm into Debian and linux in general, and make videos for @gtalug.
I also like running and cycling.
I'm posting about my side projects but also retoot things I find interesting.
In light of the cancellation of this year's Gathering Of The Juggalos due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I would like to propose the "ICP Responsible Leadership Test" as a metric for evaluating corporate and political leadership going forward. Nobody gets to be in charge of anything if they are not demonstrably better at managing safety risk than The Insane Clown Posse.
Here's a short article on practical prints for a model I found on thingiverse -- bike light clip that I keep breaking then fixing, then breaking again
I wrote a brief post on how to troubleshoot issues with octoprint plugin installation with bed visualizer as an example
@uint8_t I used digiKam¹ for a while. It got the job done. I'm currently trying Rapid Photo Downloader² which has a nice interface but fewer features. In theory gThumb can do some of this management stuff too but I've only ever used it as a viewer.
I'm looking for first hand experience on photo organizing, best practices, software setup
what I'm trying to do
- organize 100+ GiB photos
- tag them
- have a nice way to back them up
- it's a plus if albums are easy to share through web, in that case it should serve lower resolution versions
- if it could deal with different versions of the same photo that'd be great (handling of RAW+JPEG)
- you know, the usual deal
One of the things the current oil market should cause us to do as a society is consider economic interdependencies the way we consider software interdependencies: among other things, as a potential attack surface. If your job market structurally relies on oil costing more than, say, $20/barrel; then any country or consortium that can unilaterally drive the price of down to $19/barrel is quietly but effectively holding your economy - and hence, your political apparatus - hostage.
The things I didn't anticipate -- gcode where nozzle would go up at the end of the print.
I need move the nozzle down first into a safe position, blast the fan so the bed and print cools down faster
The nozzle hit the print in the wrong spot and left a mark. ( need to turn off the extruder heater).
Motors jammed because a wrong angle.
For me automated bed cleaning will save time on bed leveling, and ideally make printer run 24hrs a day.
Here's my initial attempt. This doesn't work and didn't go as planned
M140 S0; turn off heated bed
M106 S255 ; turn on fan at full blast
G4 P60000; Wait for a minute
Botcamp came up with tips and tricks to speed up visor printing --
So far I'm using the only one tip -- and it is a literal tip 0.5mm nozzle. It saves me about 15 minutes per 2x print.
Whenever I have time I want to outfit the second printer with 0.5mm nozzle (I found one!) and then experiment with automatic bed cleaning.
For all of the friends in eastern part of Toronto, Michael Garron Hospital has requested assistance from those with 3D-printing capabilities to assist in creating parts for PPE Face Shields.
They use different design, it's not stackable when printing, as prusa, but it also doesn't require laser cut parts instead uses 3-punch transparent folder and a lot less filament.
Quarantine day #(I don't know any more).
The song is weirdly appropriate for the time.
Since I've been using power adapter with my camera, I needed a few more battery clips.
I printed several more copies of a battery clip for DMV-BFL19PP for my Panasonic GH4 using 0.5mm nozzle with 0.5mm layer height.
The design is from here -- https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2575324/makes
There's a video about it by the person who designed the clip -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=amd7pFq7G7Y
It fits really well.
corona lockdown exit strategy
Basically german and austrian experts are aligning in copying the south korean model.
1. Masks for reducing virus transmission
2. Enough test capacity to widely test
3. Massive contact tracing and reinforced quarantine procedures
There are no serious alternative plans to this. Letting a large pct of population die or staying in lockdown until next year aren’t serious options.
Any country talking about ending lockdown without plan is insane
