Depression

Not many people understand chronic depression. I doubt anything I write here will solve anything, but I think it's important that people recognize the signs of depression and learn to recognize them in themselves and their loved ones.

Most people make the mistake of confusing depression with depression. See, I've just done it myself. One problem for English speakers is that the word for depression (as in a chronic life-threatening mental illness, most often inherited) with depression (as in being sad for a few weeks due to a known cause).

Zumy! This is a project to keep me sane through the monotony of school. It all started with a Pi. A while back I made an attempt at building a wifi connected robot … Read more

LMR's second year in pictures

What do you know? Memory Lane can be 4000 pixels long. Take a trip and share your memories with the rest of us as they shoot through your brain's déjà vu lobe. Any juicy anecdotes? Horror stories?

Do you recognise these fragments? Can you even tell how many there are? I dare you all to search a few node numbers. Heaven knows I tried and failed (for about 5% of them).

Control Picaxe with computer

I've managed to control my picaxe with my computer and thus with another picaxe microcontroller (which I'll need in a project later on)...

 

 

Computer Parts Salvaging

My work occasionally has a surplus computer sale, where they get rid of old or non functioning computers.  So I picked up a nonfunctioning one complete with keyboard and mouse for free.computer_salvage_010.jpg

 This is also probably a good time to show you my basement workshop.

The whole setup takes up a corner in the basement next to the central vac.

Have the tools but need help with calcs

Hi guys.

 

I am heavily into automation in both my daytime job and my hobbies. I have always built gear I need. I have lathes, welders etc with access to milling machines etc, folding machines and other stuff.

 

I am building an autonomous hybrid farm utility. No issues with that.

 

I can do the the motor/gennorator etc, rams etc and all that. However, I need a push in the correct direction to calculate the drive train part. I know my required wheel size, weight etc so how do I work out size of the drive motors etc

Shipping

I've been setting up my profile for selling on the marketplace and am wondering if there are any seller settings or tables to use for adding shipping classes. 

For now I've included shipping costs into the price. 

Thanks!

A toy that can be controlled by an Android phone could be turned into an interesting robot if we just tape the phone to the toy and do some interesting software.  … Read more

Amusing infographic on robots...

FIRST Ny regional

So i've been a little inactive lately, due in part to my involvement in my schools robotics team, but i'd thought i post a few pictures from our competition over the weekend at the javits center. Not exactly the greatest pictures but the competition was really cool.

 

Sorry it's taken me so long to update.

A little more on the robots:

Apparently it's pinewood derby time at my mother's church again, so she bought a car kit for my son and I to build. After a bit of thought we decided on a 30's hot … Read more
