You slackers.

Studies have shown that a major component to dust in the home and workplace is shed skin cells.

Quit teabagging your lungs.

Humans shed tens of thousands of these keratinized dead cells every day from all surfaces of the external epidermis.

The dust that builds up in your electronic equipment and gets kicked back into the air by fans and air currents is no different.

Therefore,
If you leave your gear all packed with dust, you’re breathing cast off nutsack.

Maybe now you’ll keep your mission critical gear clean, you slackers.

T minus three, two, one, LIFTOFF! We have LIFTOFF!!

Device in question: a Channel Master Chinashit ATSC tuner. Sadly, this is one of the better units available.

State of mind

*prepares to post politically motivated spiel about how this state are a bunch of idiots, based on voting results*

*remembers that this is Florida, so calling it a bunch of idiots would be totally pointless and redundant*

*shitposts instead*

Read it and be puzzled... Why does the right one still exist?

Things I never understood

Seems like it perfectly combines the disadvantages of a car and a motorcycle into one exotic, disappointing package.

Note that this one has no plate; it’s an unregistered Opa-Locka douchecasserole special.

Train 261, slow clear to Port of Miami.

This is a fun little thing I built for the children’s museum.

The pool for the remote controlled boats always had this ledge at the back and two static cranes (made of really strong steel, may I add!) at the back.

The former director of exhibits decided this should be an interactive feature adding a goal for guests who are more skilled at controlling the boats to aim for.

Bingo!

When you succeed, the amber beacon light flashes and the train rolls over like it’s going to pick up cargo. After a few seconds it departs.

Controller in testing

Yes, those yellow relays are the ones equipped with the surprise diode 😉

This is the solution I came up with for the train control. There are gaps in the third rail to allow isolation. I pulled the spaghetti out of the locomotive and wired the motors to the wheels. 

image
Yack!

It works great. Or, if you put the locomotive on the track backwards, it drives its coupler right through the drywall. BANG!! 😉

Oopsie! That time travel thing happened again.

Hey guys I accidentally came in contact with the HD-SDI jack on an AJA video processor set to change timecode and got sucked into the 1970s. Please send me ridiculous disco pants. Thanks!

And now, two mysteries:

image

Greenies. Where do they go? Who takes them? World may never know.

What is this beautiful thing? It’s about 3″ diameter and my best guess is it’s a flat, ironless rotor for a wound rotor induction motor. It’s video tape machine related.
