IaCthulhuFthagn: Tron (1982)
jackulhaups: What’s the black plastic base from? Is it a kit, or something repurposed?
DrakoniteStreams: @jackulhaups 3d printed
DarkMorford: @jackulhaups 3D printed
jackulhaups: Ah, copy that!
Simonark: @LordZarano Yeah, Moonbase 3 was apparently just shy of 5 years 10 months and V is now just past 5 years 7 months, the move date will be close it seems, according to the Wiki
Anexmedia: Oh I was just looking at that library today
Anexmedia: neat
DarkMorford: I had to do some messing around with WS2811s a few months ago for a work thing. They weren't bad to work with, but they just weren't bright enough for what we needed.
DrakoniteStreams: teensy to arduino is like i9 vs pentium2
LordZarano: Can we play pong on ping pong balls?
Driosenth: A Teensy 4 is pretty darn powerful for it's size, a full sized 4.1 has so many pins to work with.
jessicaengle: Hello!
spawnofhastur: I approve of the generic BEER
DarkMorford: The catch is, longer strip = lower refresh rate. It's a fixed amount of time per LED.

DrakoniteStreams: 4x6 IIRC
LordZarano: in pxl fnts
CAKHost: Can you play Pong on it? :P
Driosenth: I might have missed it; what voltage are the LEDs running?
Raincoast_Bear: Good evening Ian and Paul. Voltage? I dunno but I'd guess 12v
DarkMorford: I think the WS2811 is a 5V device, but it might be 12V.
DrakoniteStreams: teensy4 should be able to easily control over 60k, not 6k, since the only real limitation is storing the color arrays
Arclight_Dynamo: The way I'm thinking about it is like the Super Dave Osborne light bulb wall.
DrakoniteStreams: @DarkMorford 5v, but there is a 12v version too with a different model name

Arclight_Dynamo: I've never understood how LEDs work. I get to "light is produced by the combination of electrons and electron holes," and I lose the plot. :D
Simonark: Is that ping-pong ball wiffle or solid?
FITorion: I've found strips and strip connectors to be very unreliable... and I end up soldering everything anyway.
Sibwow: @Arclight_Dynamo ok so theres this diode right
Driosenth: You think Light Emitting Diodes are great, wait until you see a Light Emitting Resistor
DarkMorford: D65 or riot Kappa
Sibwow: with enough current everything is a light emitting resistor
BrowneePoints: Yep same for me and Stage Lights
Arclight_Dynamo: Now the *real* tech is a light *consuming* diode.
LordZarano: "The international rules specify that the game is played with a sphere having a mass of 2.7 grams and a diameter of 40 millimetres"
TehAmelie: so many problems can be solved with more fire
niccus: that's solar panels, yeah
DrakoniteStreams: every component is light emitting if you drive it wrong enough
BrowneePoints: Sounds like a Grant Morrison era X-Men character
mwlsn: "Color temperatures higher than 3500K are typically used for commercial and hospital applications, as the light is bright and has a bluish daylight cast that can be harsh for home interiors; but task lighting may be useful at 4000K and above."
IaCthulhuFthagn: More fire solves most problems caused by highly flammable nitrocellulose ping pong balls.
DarkMorford: I test displays and color calibration on Surface computers for a living, I've learned a *lot* about light and color in the past couple years.
BrowneePoints: "here are two new Mutants, Negasonic Teenage Warhead and Blackbody Radiation"
Arclight_Dynamo: Eff it. Bring back limelight.
Driosenth: 5000K bulbs or riot
LordZarano: @DarkMorford D65 can F off, the surface of the sun is 5700K so any bluer than that is nonsense
FITorion: Black body radiation "What temperature is that Lava?" "what color is it? Look it up on the chart"
Sibwow: back when it was loadingreadywalk
DrakoniteStreams: outside is not blue. inside is yellow.
BrowneePoints: They still have not been able to make a camera that accurately replicates the functions of the Human Eye
Driosenth: LRR is almost 20 years old, another 20 and it will be Loading Ready Shuffle
shurtal: use what you can get
SnowBuddy18: LoadingReadyWalk
DarkMorford: Hot single lamps in your area!
TheMerricat: The EU has/is bann(ed/ing) halogen lights IIRC, I don't know if the US has yet.
terribleplan: LoadingReadyRoll
TehAmelie: LoadingReadyBedridden
DrakoniteStreams: @Arclight_Dynamo flowing current knocks electrons temporarily to a higher shell, and when they fall back down the potential energy is emitted as a photon
Arclight_Dynamo: I can confirm that Princess Auto and Canadian Tire both have halogen lamps for sale.
Arclight_Dynamo: @DrakoniteStreams THANK YOU
Jvetting83 : LEDs work similarly. The LED is actually blue with a phosphor coating to get the yellow/white light.
plunko625: Howdy Ian and Paul
gualdhar: wait, wasn't that the last desert bus?
LurkerSpine: Wait, Ian didn't go for 1984 version?
Arclight_Dynamo: The most recent DB button was the plush.
gualdhar: oh no, the last desert bus was the button button\
TheNerdWonder: it was the year Night Watch did Star Trek
chaostreader: The pain box was db2021
LordZarano: How was getting it off the build plate? That large flat area seems like it'd stick very well
TemporallyAwry: Ah yes, getting out the LED hammer PrideLaugh
Arclight_Dynamo: In *other* things you can't do with a light bulb.
DarkMorford: I've been considering getting a new bed for my 3D printer, something heavier and flatter than the stock plate.
LurkerSpine: time for a glue gun
DrakoniteStreams: lrrAWW
tenthtechpriest: LEARNING!
plunko625: would plastic glue work?
DarkMorford: And I still haven't taken my resin printer out of the box yet. :p
DrakoniteStreams: that solvent does NOT work on PLA
mjiig: "If it only works in exactly the way the manufacturer intended, it is defective"
Anexmedia: I find a flat end for a soldering iron saves a lot more time
plunko625: Yeah, tamiya glue
DrakoniteStreams: the solvents needed for PLA are really nasty\
plunko625: or something similar
TemporallyAwry: Just turn them on really bright and melt them in? Kappa
Anexmedia: This seems like a perfect job for a belt based printer
DrakoniteStreams: if this was an ABS print, a tiny bit of acetone would act as a solvent glue
Aarek: thats been the majority of my experience with 3d printing, mostly calibrating and fiddling with the printer, very little printing other things
Anexmedia: My Neptune 3 Plus should be here next weeka and I'm stoked to have that much bed real estate
DarkMorford: Prusas are very good out-of-box, the new Bambu P1P is even better.
plunko625: @DrakoniteStreams I believe most 3D printer filaments are similar to ABS, but I could be wrong
Anexmedia: Oh that P1P is so slick
Anexmedia: and it jiggles
IaCthulhuFthagn: @DrakoniteStreams I mean, THF and dioxane yes, but ethyl acetate isn't that nasty.
DarkMorford: @DrakoniteStreams You *can* 3D print ABS, but most folks stick to PLA or PETG.
DrakoniteStreams: @DrakoniteStreams not really, they are very different chemically. e.g. acetone does not work as a solvent for PLA
Arclight_Dynamo: An *Imperial* soldering station? Scandal.
Anexmedia: @Arclight_Dynamo we heat in freedoms, apparently
LordZarano: 500C is about when things start glowing
Driosenth: My Voron V2.4r1 is the process of printing replacement parts out of PC+CF, it is not a pleasant filament to work with.
plunko625: I didn't even realize that the solder holder was 3D printed, I love the design
Anexmedia: @Driosenth is that with carbon strands in it?
Driosenth: @Anexmedia correct, small length strands
plunko625: The money shot
Anexmedia: @Driosenth my condolences to your nozzle
DrakoniteStreams: I need to unpack and set up my printer from my move, and also completely reinstall, reconfigure, and retune slicing software. part of my wants to just buy a new printer. :|
Driosenth: @Anexmedia my nozzle is a Diamondback so I'm not worried about it, I'm more worried about the thin stainless heatbreak
plunko625: Did you design the solder holder yourself, or did you find a file on the internet?

FITorion: When bugs were literal Bugs that got into the wiring
DrakoniteStreams: @Arclight_Dynamo my hands hurt just thinking about it
Arclight_Dynamo: I do know that prior to soldering, they used to wrap wires around the legs of components.

TheMerricat: @Arclight_Dynamo It wasn't as bad as it sounds, is how they did it. required two people sitting across each other but....
Arclight_Dynamo: @TheMerricat Ah, the nerdiest quilting party. :D
FITorion: In theory maybe? Thinking no though
DrakoniteStreams: are you trying to convince me to buy a laser cutter?
Texan_Reverend: Honestly Paul, some of the greatest ideas come from outsiders to a hobby/profession looking at things with fresh eyes.
Arclight_Dynamo: Man, old technology was wild.
Manae: "cool down the laser cutter" if it requires a chiller
DarkMorford: The makerspace at work has *two* laser cutters that I have 24/7 access to! :D
FITorion: alternately soldering iron can melt off the insulation in a pinch
TemporallyAwry: The real secret is that you just remove ALL the insulation, and then add heat-shrink after it's installed Kappa
Driosenth: Ian, are you using hookup wire with standard FEP insulation, silicone insulation, or PTFE insulation?
Godofmuffins: I love the can of legally non-distinct beer.
Driosenth: Ah, that would explain the difficultly of wire routing. silicone insulation is typically a bit thicker than FEP or PTFE
LordZarano: "The 40 mm ball was introduced after the end of the 2000 Summer Olympics; previously a 38 mm ball was standard." "the World No. 1 table tennis professional at the time, threatened to pull out of the World Cup"
Driosenth: Oh no.
Arclight_Dynamo: Oh BOY, that wire is associated with stress.
DrakoniteStreams: insulation thickness on hookup wire is amazingly inconsistent, unless you buy expensive stuff
Driosenth: Modifying an .stl is still a challenge, hopefully the original designer provided a .step (AC214) file as well
FITorion: subtractive manufacturing
Arclight_Dynamo: Oh, 100% the Dreamcast.
Driosenth: My own for me
Arclight_Dynamo: Was the beginning of the Dreamcast project closer to the original release of the console than it was to the end of the project?
Driosenth: Did Ian say what gauge he is using other than larger than 36 AWG? It looks like either 22 or 20.

DigitalSeahorse: lucidWeb
Driosenth: My preferred hook-up wire is NEMA-HP3EXB (formally MIL-W-16878/4). PTFE coated and very tightly controlled diameters and resistance per length.
Arclight_Dynamo: I imagine solid-core wire would be easier, here.
Too_Many_Knives: Mmm delicious lead

Mazrae: If paperclip = toothpick, what does toothpick = ??
fiinnnaaaaannnnnnnn: is this an sat question
Jay_Blanc: The macro camera shot gives us a nice clear view of the solder so we can see where it's bridging or not. You could try getting a desk monitor for the macro camera so you can use it too?
mjiig: @Mazrae paperclip, equality is symmetric
DarkMorford: @Jay_Blanc Maybe Paul can bring up a grid on the overlay again so we can tell Ian that the bridge is in sector B2 LUL
Anexmedia: Thankfully that bracket is no longer used
Anexmedia: and it was always terrifying
SnackPak_: those were scary
Anexmedia: Another scary point: The strain/tension placed on PCI slots now by 30/40 series massive GPUs
saiarcot895: that sounds like a issue similar to the 12V high power connector on the 4090 GPUs
Jay_Blanc: @Anexmedia And power connectors that can start smoking if they're not seated perfectly correctly.

Arclight_Dynamo: @mjiig No. In manufacturing, they often are - especially in Europe - but hobbyist solder is leaded, as it works better.
Juliamon: Leaded solder persists because it's just easier to work with despite the risks
DarkMorford: @mjiig At the industrial level yes, but leaded solder is still very common for hobbyists.
Laogeodritt: mjig: Only in commercial production/manufacturing usage. For repair and prototyping work, it's WAY easier to work with leaded solder—a lot of people still swear by eutectic 63/37 or the nearly 60/40 solder.
DarkMorford: I like the 63/37 myself.
SaggyJello89: same
DrakoniteStreams: @mjiig commercial products usually use lead free solder due to the misguided RoHS guidelines. but lead solder is preferred for hobby, space, and military use
SaggyJello89: I work in education, and sometimes through ed providers they always default to silver, lead-free stuff.
SaggyJello89: sometimes they* not always
DarkMorford: Actually, I forget what the last spool I bought is. Might just be 63/37, but I kinda remember there being something else in there. Just a sec.
DrakoniteStreams: @SaggyJello89 are you sure it is actually silver solder? silver solder is expensive, very hard to use, and only for specialist uses
mjiig: Interesting, I feel like even in hobbyist settings most of the solder I've seen recently is lead free, but I may be misremembering, I don't get to play with actual physical electronics very often
TheNerdWonder: ah yes, the old clue by four
SaggyJello89: I have been made to order the expensive silver stuff yes, not just tin-copper
SaggyJello89: Sometimes state contracts make you order from certain providers, and they restrict what they offer to spendy stuff
DrakoniteStreams: @mjiig It has starting to get hard to buy leaded solder in some areas, specifically parts of europe. there is no benefit to using leadfree though
DarkMorford: Okay, yeah, it is just 63/37 at 0.025 inches. Nice Kester stuff.
serramarkov: Worse than my joke?
TheNerdWonder: I heard "Star Trek Jellicle" and hoped it was a weird crossover of Star Trek and Cats
DarkMorford: HORNER
TemporallyAwry: seabatClap
ShatteredShamrock: Booooo (good job)
tornpaige: so mad
Driosenth: Capt. Jelico is a great account
TheMerricat: Jellico from CATs
Texan_Reverend: The Jellico account is great, and I recently discovered that the person who runs it is from my old neck of the woods, as they referenced a local ren faire. Terrific stuff.
ShatteredShamrock: who needs pockets in a utopia
FITorion: they do not... occasionally belts with pouches
Driosenth: How do technicians and engineers function in Star Fleet without pockets?
virgil82: The thing I remember Jelico for is telling Riker that her wanted the Duty rotation moved from a three shift rotation to a four shift one.
TemporallyAwry: Honestly, he had practical reasons for trying to get the ship back up to regulation, it was his job - It's just that their missions were rarely regulation
ShatteredShamrock: lots of teleporting
virgil82: And the look on Riker's face. Just shock and despair,
TheNerdWonder: scotty would have fought for utilikilts
TheMerricat: Jellico came in during the one episode where Picard decided to play James Bond (and got caught by the Cardassians - there are THREE LIGHTS) and replaced him as a temporary captain of the Enterprise. His main problem was he treated the crew as if they were a bunch of unprofessional noobs... mostly because in real life they would have been.
DrakoniteStreams: was TNG S1 when the uniforms were so bad they couldn't even really sit down in them?
TheAwkes: It's a military/government operation; maybe the all just have different software and security requirements that don't necessarily play nice together.
ShatteredShamrock: this is why I switched to resin
DarkMorford: Ask your doctor about Klipper today!
TemporallyAwry: They have squishy feet so they can walk silently
Arclight_Dynamo: I wonder if it's a reference to Chernobyl rather than an actual elephant.
niccus: chernobyl went fashion critical
DarkMorford: Oof, bad caps suck.
Driosenth: The voron design guide has a .4mm chamfer minimum for all surfaces touching the buildplate to prevent elephant's foot
Arclight_Dynamo: Surface-mount resistor 0.03 mm long. Good luck.
TemporallyAwry: 0201 was horrible to work with, even the machines have trouble.
Laogeodritt: I've made the mistake of grabbing surface mount diode packages thinking they don't look too bad to solder, and then I get the PCB and parts and realise that the package is like 1mm by 0.5mm and the leads are TINY
Laogeodritt: I've since learnt to look at the dimensions on the mech drawings before committing to the part XD
ArdCollider: the powerwash one is on sale on Steam this week.
DrakoniteStreams: brb need to go register a product name on steam...
TheAwkes: Would it be a surgeon simulator style game, or a mechanic simulator style game?
Arclight_Dynamo: CNC machine failure simulator.
ArdCollider: seriously considering it
NotCainNorAbel: I would assume it would have an eye tracker so the second you looked away it failed
Driosenth: CNC crash simulator
7gorobei: wristwatch servicing simulator
Asimech: @Laogeodritt I've soldered a MELF resistor manually. It wasn't as bad as surface mounts can get, but compatible pliers or tweezers would've been real nice.
baronsamedi23: ff7
hsmash36 subscribed with Prime.
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, hsmash36! (Today's storm count: 56)
Laogeodritt: WIth a group of friends, I still kinda prefer Viscera Cleanup Detail to Powerwash Simulator... it's a bit more tedious but it's sillier and there's so much environmental storytelling to think about XD
DrakoniteStreams: you mostly clean stuff an shinra
Laogeodritt: asimech: Ahh, MELFs, the wish-it-were-SMD package class. That's a whole different category of difficulty XD
DrakoniteStreams: you clean a couple robot bosses just before they go to fight avalanche
Arclight_Dynamo: Those super detailed Assassin's Creed scans of, like, Notre Dame cathedral... and Powerwash Simulator.
niccus: ah, so like Triple H
Phailhammer: This leads to some very funny clips of like a 747 just bouncing like a toy when it hits the ground. :D
EvilBadman: That "no damage" thing was also a clause in many racing games, like Gran Tourismo
DrakoniteStreams: polyphonic made the same claim in gran turismo... but it turned out they just didn't think damage was part of real racing so shouldn't be in the game
EvilBadman: @DrakoniteStreams Oh no, we're at an impasse
Arclight_Dynamo: Aw, boo.
Asimech: @Laogeodritt Yeah. IIRC I was swapping a bright blue LED for a red one and it was either a bigger resistor (both in ohms and size) or risk burning out either the new LED or the resistor. And the old resistor was an SMD, so.
Phailhammer: The great monolith of Melbourne. :D
Angelic_Bovines: the introduction of chicanery
LordZarano: !gant
LRRbot: Gant!
Arclight_Dynamo: Think you could argue you're referencing a meme, not a brand?
TheAwkes: How familiar with Gant is ICBC? You might just get away with it.
TheNerdWonder: it's probably one of those things that's technically illegal but no one enforces it unless someone raises a stink
korvys: For when you have so little personality, you need to buy one, in car form
SnackPak_: gant stans
baronsamedi23: !advice
LRRbot: Don't look at the clock, focus on the rhinos.
Phailhammer: The Great Schism between the eastern and western Gants.
TheAwkes: What I've learned about Gant from a cursory search: $200 casual shirts on sad skinny boys.
DrakoniteStreams: there are companies that sell track scans to games, and even sequels in a series often pay for a new scan just for that game. so both probably got the scans from the same place, but may be different scans
DarkMorford: Isn't the Le Mans map for Assetto Corsa a mod? I wonder where a user would get that kind of geometry data as opposed to a AAA developer.
TheMerricat: So this is something I didn't know till this or last month... they actually MOVE the holes periodicly...
Arclight_Dynamo: I mean, you drive in both, Ian.
Twilight_Spark: In that neither is a real sport? Kappa
Anexmedia: Rubbin' is Puttin', son
mjiig: @TheMerricat Normally every day in multi-day tournaments, I believe
MWGNZ: how long until golf fans leak national security secrets like war thunder fans?
DarknessKingCoH: @MWGNZ Well there is that one course in Florida that is famous for that.
DrakoniteStreams: uh oh
DrakoniteStreams: you meant to Z?
niccus: oh you didn't boustrophedon it
DrakoniteStreams: ohhh
TheAwkes: Casually reversing the polarity of diodes is not recommended.
Laogeodritt: Those are WS2812-style RGB LEDs, I assume?
MWGNZ: @TheAwkes better than forcefully reversing a diodes polarity Kappa
Texan_Reverend: Hello, I am Wumpty.
NotCainNorAbel: Feel like I should clip that reminder for the payoff in 6 months
Texan_Reverend: Also clean, though.
penguinknight76: Remember chat, lumps are where u store your snacks
DrakoniteStreams: @Laogeodritt yep
DoodlestheGreat: AGAIN?
Laogeodritt: I have concerns about both your beard and your respiratory system. (Ian, no fume extractor? D= )
Driosenth: John Irons
Arclight_Dynamo: I don't want a beep; I want a Beeb.
Anexmedia: well now I want a Minion voltmeter
Driosenth: The bomber guy's yell from Serious Sam
Asimech: How about making a "BZZzt" sound? Really makes sure you're awake if you ever forget.
TemporallyAwry: You really don't want the contact high you get from soldering
Laogeodritt: I find that that strategy gets my asthma acting up after a good 4-hour soldering session. D;
Laogeodritt: And also I would get yelled at at work for not running the fume extractor while soldering XD
TheAwkes: Here's a bridge that goes across an open expanse of flat ground. Enjoy!
Driosenth: My Brand!
NotCainNorAbel: Pride500
Laogeodritt: Always apply flux before soldering!
patrick_stonecrusher: SingsNote ya he got, norman reetus eyes SingsNote
DrakoniteStreams: feel the rhythm, feel the rhyme, it's soldering time!
Laogeodritt: I honestly can't stand relying only on solder core flux for anything except through-hole soldering on clean/new leads and pads. A liquid flux pen is so, so crucial to good solder joints for me. XD

DrakoniteStreams: did nanoleaf make their own software or fork the open source software?
Juliamon: "Yes, but we did the work for you" goes a long way
Arclight_Dynamo: There is value in having a turnkey solution.
Arclight_Dynamo: You can also build a car from scratch. You won't.
DrakoniteStreams: elgato is a better value proposition than nanoleaf though
Laogeodritt: I've been wanting to make my own Stream Deck-like macropad—the main thing I want are the per-key screens (for using across different applications) + mechanical keys, which neither conventional mechanical macropads nor Stream Deck provide.
xantos69: Those arguments are similar to saying "You should never go to a restaurant. You can just make your own food at home!"
TheAwkes: Robust proven software? Well engineered physical packaging? Ready to go off the shelf? There's a lot of value in those three things.
Driosenth: Dakota Digital makes some nice LCD gauge panels
Laogeodritt: It would be a pretty complicated project, tbh, between the very limited space for routing that many screens at normal key spacing, and pushing enough data fast enough to the screens to update the displays. (I think the Stream Deck uses a single display for all the keys... which wouldn't be viable with mech keyswitches, I think.)
DarknessKingCoH: Kind of like how the 2DS is just one big screen
Anexmedia: I'm going to order that keyboard Ian is thinking of, it's only 350
Master_Gunner: Reminds me of Technology Connections background - a pair of TVs behind some shelves, and very carefully positioned images displayed on ithem
Driosenth: Why TFT, mini-OLEDS are the perfect size for keyboard keys.
DrakoniteStreams: fixing double-presses could be done in software
Arclight_Dynamo: Eff it, I want a keyboard where every key has its own tiny CRT.
Asimech: @Laogeodritt Without some complicated and expensive lens/mirror shenanigans I don't see that working for mechanical keyboards, no.
TheAwkes: @Arclight_Dynamo Imagine the spring pressures.
FITorion: If only Cars would get that through their collective heads
Anexmedia: @Arclight_Dynamo is the one Ians talking about's not far off
Arclight_Dynamo: @Anexmedia ...huh.
Anexmedia: and it is mechanical
asddsa28: im so gald i have one
DarkMorford: How many of those new StreamDecks can we get for Desert Bus this year? LUL
Driosenth: Ian, would you prefer a dial with or without detents?
Laogeodritt: asimech: I've done some feasibility work and it's doable, there are small enough OLEDs on the market to allow for normal key spacing in an ortholinear config. Requires a fair bit of electromechanical integration (connecting all the displays and routing them is challenging) and custom clear keycap design, and the top of the keys would be chunky (it wouldn't fit the normal keycap profiles, but could use standard key pitch).
TemporallyAwry: Did it feel like spinning a well-dialed safe? Or did it spin freely?
DandyGeek: Oh gosh, Ian have you seen the synth with the fully motorized knobs?
Juliamon: (at a ratio of 1 work to 300 junk)
Laogeodritt: I've seen these OLEDs for around $1-2 USD per unit on Alibaba at qty 100. Expensive macropad but not obscene (unlike the Optimus all those decades ago).
Asimech: @Laogeodritt I was talking about the "one screen" approach. Though Anexmedia's link proved me wrong on that, unless that video is a mockup.
DarkMorford: YES
Anexmedia: @Asimech I believe that's a pre-production model
Laogeodritt: asimech: Ah! Yeah, sorry.
asddsa28: yess

Raincoast_Bear: Thanks for the solder Ian & Paul. See you next time!
DrakoniteStreams: therea48Wave
Raincoast_Bear: Fortnite is fun. I feel a little offended, Ian.
Juliamon: Raincoast_Bear Yeah, but it doesn't belong on TTSF.
Asimech: @Anexmedia So it's a physical thing they've actually built and recorded? Impressive, since I would've figured the keys, no matter how transparent, would distort the image too much.
