And thought I was cc’ing @neauoire @rek but it didn’t take on the previous message.

@mathiasx @rek that's fun if you don't sail much and stay in port. It reminds me a bit of Datawake: microship.com/datawake/

@neauoire @rek totally makes sense. Saltwater mist is probably too harsh! I learned how to solder from some bubbleheads (submariners) and they stressed that you had to precut your components before soldering and couldn’t leave exposed component leads or wire. Their instruction really helped when years later I built a point-to-point Atreus keyboard designed by @technomancy and precut everything to fit.

@neauoire @rek @technomancy I’ll handwave over the details but when I was more enamored with crypto/smart contracts and was talking to project-entropy.com/ my main focus was the “makerspace on a sailboat” idea, with maybe the potential to act like the maker arm of Burners without Borders. Which is how I got into disaster.radio/ and I’m now planning to try and port the protocol to Esp32forth.

(And how I got interested in the Maslow CNC but I still don’t have one.)

@mathiasx @rek @technomancy we hung out with the folks behind project-entropy during our time in new zealand :)

If you're interested in maker-space aboard, you might like to watch Whitespot Pirates, she's sailing with someone with a drill-press, an arc welder, and all sorts of power tools aboard.

@neauoire @mathiasx @technomancy Nike has a diy plastic crusher, and extruder. The arc welder is on Maria's big boat ;)

@neauoire @mathiasx @technomancy Nike does cool things with it, crushes bottle caps found on the beach in central American and makes jewellery with it with the extruder. She hosts a lot of workshops there, and has helped a few locals set up their own machines to help process more caps.

@rek @neauoire very cool! I suppose if plastic crusher+extruder tech gets better, one could start recycling plastic out of the ocean!

@neauoire @rek the big limit to my participation in Project Entropy back in 2018 was the fact that I was not in New Zealand. Oh well.

@neauoire @rek I did not realize until I poked around this site who this was! Very cool! The Winnebiko is such a unique part of computing history.

@mathiasx @neauoire Think he's moved back on land recently. Still owns the microship.

@mathiasx this looks like fun.

I do wonder how you keep screws from falling everywhere though…🤣

@requiem somewhere they mentioned they only use this at anchor. Cooking at sea requires a gymbal stove.. now I’m imagining a gymbal 3D printer or a whole gymbal workbench. 😂

@mathiasx it surprised me to learn that my printer happily works when inverted…
