The British and Their Bizarre View of Americans

I think, at root, the problem is one of mirroring.

They say "aluminum", we say "aluminium", but both can be shiny and reflective surfaces. So, no matter how intently we examine the US, we cannot help but see our own features staring back at us. This phenomenon simply doesn't occur when we look at the French, the Vietnamese or the South Africans - all remain properly other.

Only America and the Americans have this ability to derange us with their capacity to reflect our own image. Not that they do this intentionally, really, it's something we do to ourselves. And it follows that what we also do to ourselves is to relentlessly equate America with Americans, and the US government with its electorate - conflations we wouldn't dream of making in the case of the German or Greek peoples.

Have You Ever Heard of a Book called "The Master and Margarita?"

'Well, as everyone knows, once witchcraft gets started, there's no stopping it'

On a hot spring afternoon in Moscow, a poet and an editor are discussing the non-existence of Jesus. A polite, foreign gentleman interrupts their debate, claiming to have known Jesus in person and to have been present when he was condemned by Pontius Pilate. Moreover, he predicts the editor's death - a bizarre accident which happens exactly as the foreigner foretells. The Devil has arrived in Moscow and, along with his demons and a large black cat

The Master and Margarita is a wonderful book. I read parts of it in Russian as an undergraduate and it's been about 10 years since I've re-read the very well done English translation which means I'm past due. BTW the Rolling Stones' 'Sympathy for the Devil' is pretty much based off the first chapter

Stressful Jobs and the Value of Efficiency

There's something vaguely comic about everyone trying to brag about how stressful their job is.  Personally, I blame television.  Shows like ER, The West Wing, and Scandal have glamorized the notion that killer jobs are friggin' awesome and super-sexy.  You know what's really awesome?  Doing your job so well that you can relax on a regular basis.

Everything Wrong With Prometheus in 4 Minutes

Prometheus is one of those interesting but frustrating failures that had all the parts to be great yet steered itself into the ditch of sukk0r . You can enjoy this video even if you haven't seen the movie.

42 Possible way to make functional gun parts by 3-D printing is indirectly, by lost wax casting. You print the gun parts in wax, coat the wax parts in ceramic slurry, harden the ceramic, then melt out the wax and pour in metal to make a casting in the hole left behind by the wax. Aluminum is low-melting and relatively easy to cast. An AR lower receiver, for example, is made of aluminum. Steel is harder to cast on a small scale but not impossible.

Lost wax 3-D printing equipment is already being marketed.

51 I took a look at pics of the new Corvette and figured out why I was underwhelmed.

I've seen the car before, lots of times. It looks like 12 other sports cars on the market now.

The C-6 looked dated, but the C-7 decided to mix parts from 10 other cars.

The Mustang, Challenger, and Camaro all hit home runs because they went the retro route. If the C-7 brought back the Sting Ray badge, they should have gone with a C-2 Sting Ray retro look

I was afraid the interior redesign would be one of those controls on three stalks and the steering wheel, leaving a barren looking dashboard, but they went too far the other way. A 767's cockpit looks less busy, I wouldn't be surprised if there's a button for turning the radio on and a separate one for turning it off

Belgium allegedly only kills though in sever pain, with the consent of the soon-to-be dead.

Of course, they also will kill senile seniors, babies, and teenagers.

Considering that those twins were killed, not because of any physical pain, but because they couldn't stand to live in a world where they couldn't see each other, even though they were still together... the idea that an overly reacting teenager had the government euthanize them without their parent(s) ever knowing is an alarming possibility.

Also, Belgium loves harvesting organs.

The problem is that euthanasia has become an accepted medical practice. In Europe, it is now the doctor's job to KILL people who could live a long and happy life. Since euthanasia is now a medical decision, the doctor may end up making it when the person can not consent, i.e. with babies, senile old people, and even emotional teenagers.

It normalized suicide, and makes is squeaky clean and antiseptic.

The real fun ain't in 3D printing, it's CNC milling.

Those
super cheap Harbor Freight lathes and mills can be tuned up and made
into serious high precision units with a little work on the traverses
and feed mechanisms. Lotta hobbyists adding CNC controls to them.

80 Anything requiring precision still needs milling. So, why not start with a mill?

Materials availability and economy. A solid slug of metal of suitable dimension may not be available, or might be very expensive. The casting process allows you to use odd size scraps. Dead disk drives, aluminum cans, old ladders, etc can all be suitable raw material donors.

Not too far off the normal $45-50 prices for the factory CZ mags, considering the times. Look for the MecGar mags. I just bought a 14rd MecGar for my P01 at a TX gun show this weekend for $39, only about $5 more than the usual non-panic internet prices.

The same vendor was selling factory Glock 17 mags for $69, by the way (normally about $19). Weird the way pricing is running nowadays.

That was largely the point of many police departments switching from revolvers to semi-auto pistols. They were getting out-gunned in the streets.

"Doctor-assisted suicide" is a contradiction in terms.



Posted by: Margarita DeVille at January 16, 2013 11:07 PM (C8mVl)

Eh, you're probably right. I was just using the phrase pounded into my head during the Kevorkian craze. It was appropriate for his suicide machine where the terminally ill person would push the button and kill himself (assisted by Dr. Death).
This would be in stark contrast to his last "client" who indicated that he didn't wish to go through with euthanasia but Kevorkian killed him anyway unequivocally making his act one of murder. That little nugget of information was pretty much buried. I only know of it since I caught a segment on CourtTV many, many years ago when they played the actual footage of it happening.

Supply and demand can produce spikes, but sooner or later they equilibriate. In the meantime, any un- or under-employed 'rons should start looking into making stuff -- like 7 shot magazines with the form factor of 30 that use cardboard spacers for the 23 missing rounds. -- oh, and the same spring.

Oh, I'd spend about a year in the barrel if I try to post anything here.

It's a Springfield XD9 (4-inch barrel). It's not as sexy as an HK or some of the others, but it was more in my price range and felt perfect in my hand. And I came home and researched on about 4-5 different website comment sections and found A LOT of positive comments from guys who had dissed any Springfield handgun until they tried this one. Also readvery positive reviews from gun mags.

It's not a Caddy, but it will be just fine for me.(So please don't groan too much). Gun shop owner was heard telling some gents who came in for auto rounds that he had sold everything he had and he had some on order which was also sold. He said that the manufacturers he deals with will take at least a year to catch up.

Make 30 round mag. Put cardboard around spring so you can only load 7 rounds before running into cardboard. Sell as 7 round mag. Customer takes home, throws on barbie, incinerates cardboard (or soaks in water if you make block out of soluble substance instead)....instant 30 round mag.

The Springfield XD is an excellent weapon and will serve you well. The important thing is that it fits you well and you are comfortable shooting it. Now, get some training. Take a pistol shooting class, not a concealed carry class (take one of those as well) and actually learn how to shoot. It will make a world of difference.


It's not that Delaware has restrictive gun laws.
They're actually closer to Virginia as far as ease of purchase, open
carry, etc. It's just that there are probably 15 gun shops in the whole
state and maybe 2 gun shows a year statewide. Not much of a chance to
stock up.

The problem is that there's no rifle hunting In the state, so most of the long guns readily available for sale are shotguns or muzzleloaders.

Yeah, the MFM completely glossed over the fact that the victim made it clear that he did not want to proceed. They re-framed the entire story as a "right-to-die" case and the pro-euthanasia crowd dutifully tied their knickers in twists. This is the same shit the MFM pulled with regard to Clinton's impeachment. It wasn't about perjury and obstruction of justice. Nope! It was all about "a stained blue dress." Assholes.

In the video, the victim was hooked into the chair, yelling incoherently (as he did when he backed out two times prior), and Kevorkian yelled back, "It's too late now! It's too late now!" No, it fucking wasn't, but he continued on to murder the guy. I had forgotten about his "artwork," though. Yech.

Then you could sell the crap out of those bad boys until the legislators figured out that you'd made them look like the fools they are and changed the rules....after which, you could surely repeat the process.

I wasn't trying to criticize the basic idea, just pointing out a flaw in the plan as outlined.
As long as the temperature didn't go over the temper heat for the spring, you should be fine - however, the difference is only a few hundred degrees and it would be very, very easy to get too hot with an open fire, the more so because the outside would get hotter than the inside, so by the time the inside was hot enough to burn up the paper completely, the outside would probably be too hot and residual heat would continue to heat the inside even after you took it off the grill. I make a lot of my own woodworking tools, so I have some practical experience with heat-treating metal using a torch, forge, or kitchen oven.
Putting it in an oven for half an hour at 500 degrees would work much better - ovens don't really get hot enough to temper springs, and are much more controlled than an open flame.

Well, you don't know what kind of paint it is, but you should start with a solvent and cloth or soft brush (toothbrush). Alcohol, paint thinner, warm soapy water, acetone.

One of them should do it. The brass brush probably won't but may damage the finish, so I would not continue with that.

Paint thinner or acetone won't harm bluing unless it's a fresh home job or that fake "painted on" blue or something. Water will if you leave it on, so dry thoroughly.

Acetone is probably the best bet (nail polish remover) and you may need a toothpick or nylon brush (toothbrush as I said above). You may have to soak it for a while (won't hurt).

288 The point I was making about long springs earlier was that is the way the did it during the last ban. There is always a way around this crap but the manufacturer can't make it look like they are putting in a removable part for you to remove. But they have no control over the buyer cutting the things they put in to make it legal.

Here's what he accomplished. He dropped his drawers on national television and invited Congress to wipe his ass with the Constitution. It's an embarrassment to the office, an offense against his oath, an insult to the citizens, and an erosion of our national character. The big debate is whether to point and loudly scoff or stay silent and allow decorum to prevail -- but any idiot coming forward to support this odious perversion is walking into a potential free-fire zone.

Actually, LinuxCNC CAN account for the backlash, as can MACH, the windows equivalent. A serviceable 2-axis CNC machine can be built out of one of these mini-mills with just a couple of stepper motors and their controllers.

That said, the vertical (Z-axis) on them uses a rack-and-pinion arrangement, and the stability is notoriously bad. If you are doing anything with even medium tolerance, you pretty much have to put some kind of lead screw in there. The horizontal lead screws are not very good quality, little better than a chunk of all-thread bar. And the screw pitch is neither metric nor conveniently imperial, so the math gets ugly fast.

So you're going to have to replace them sometime anyway, you need to add the vertical leadscrew regardless, replacing the whole set at once is less trouble, not a lot more expensive, sets you up more or less permanently, and saves you trouble down the road. Why not?

Or like slop in a steering wheel of an old car. Electronics have a hard time accounting for that slop because they read this many spins clockwise this many counter. If there is a 25% error to start movement you are fucked.

Last year, I did a couple of field-trips up to Type A Machines in San Francisco -- great folks, BTW, very friendly and helpful -- and if you're thinking of a standalone 3D printer, theirs would be an excellent one to get. As a result, I got a feel for what objects I would prefer to make with 3D printing and what objects I would prefer to mill -- the G-Code for both is very similar (the inside and the outside are separated by one "pixel"). Hollow, nested objects -- 3D printing, hands down.

But mechanisms? For one thing, 3D printing is "iffy" on scale. The whole lingo of machining involves part-to-part interoperability...3D printing is more geared to one-offs.

I am guessing they are classified as long term unemployed and not even counted anymore since they have run out of places to look and having a rough time coming to grips with the idea that their next job is not going to be at the same level or higher than their previous job.

Gov. SUNNY (Gov. Sandoval), will likely win re-election in '14. It is strongly rumored that he will run against Reid in '16.

Due to the fact that Sandoval has strong ties to the "gambling industry," likely stronger than Reid, it means that Reid will retire or become toast in '16.

If you're thinking of http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKWj_ppMoyo, it does nicely highlight their extended bed dimensions.

If anyone is really interested the problem with 3D printing is that you're essentially trying to build dimensional, measurable items by squirting toothpaste. It's a big deal when software has a feature to randomly start loops with the plastic instead of having them all aligned at a seam. Bridging gaps by letting extruded plastic droop and building more plastic on it actually works.

The only big criticism with Type A is that they only do PLA because ABS needs a heated stage. ABS is what legos are made of -- food grade possible, stable for decades. PLA is some BS pseudoplastic the greenies worship because you can compost it. I've sent them info on quick-and-easy heated stages, but haven't seen it.

He was defeated along with Joe Heck from the state senate in '08, thus giving the Dems control of the state Senate. Heck went on to defeat Titus in NV03 in '10 and win reelection in '12.

The GOP has 10 of 11 seats in the NV state Senate. They lost SD09 by a few hundred votes... in a strong Dem year. It was a special election due to the fact that the previous state Senator was an adulterous slut who resigned. It is up again in '14, when it ought to be more favorable for the GOP. They are thus favored to pick up the state Senate conrol in '14.

441 My turn to play. I've spent the last 3 years using manual and CNC mills and lathes (but not as my primary job).

Yes, climb milling (the endmill rotation and direction of travel are analogous to a tire accelerating a car on pavement) can be done on a manual mill, but it's usually a bad choice. If the endmill is large enough (perhaps a .500" endmill on a Bridgeport mill), the endmill can easily grab the work and pull the table ... the results are usually not good.

Conventional milling(the tire/endmill is rotating against the direction of travel/cut) on a manual machine is a very much better choice.

Conversely, climb milling is preferred on CNC mills, as less power is required, the tools wear less, and the CNC has enough power and speed to handle the forces involved ... and to do this with ballscrews (the friction is so low that the screw can be forced by hand through the nut). Manual mills usually have threaded rods and (brass) split nuts; the friction is acceptable, and the split nuts can be moved closer together or farther apart to adjust backlash.


The mill shown in the Little Machine Shop .PDF is an X2. It's a bit small for cutting steel (very time consuming). Look for an X3, Super X3 (Grizzly G0619), or larger ... something in the 1.5Hp/400lb+ range ... maybe something the size of an RF-45. Grizzly, Bolton Tool, and several other dealers have offerings. Tormach is very nice (The Tech Shop in San Jose has one) but they're in the $4000-$8500 range. Next step up is really a Haas Mini Mill.

I don't think they can duplicate the 3DS rescue with just a price cut and some eStore goodies in this case.

The 3DS really had only one serious negative: the price. Otherwise it's a pretty nice little machine for its target market, much as the DS was back when it launched in 2004. Developers see plenty of opportunity there to do stuff that is unique to that platform.

But while the Wii U has some unique features, especially the GamePad, a console is going to be judged much more by developers on horsepower. The Wii U has a more modern GPU than the existing consoles but is only on par or somewhat below them on the CPU side. Leaving aside the GamePad second screen gimmicks, the consumer isn't seeing anything he cannot get on the competition with massively greater libraries. (The Wii U can draw on the Wii library but that isn't saying much beyond the Nintendo franchises.) This is only going to get worse as the new competing platforms launch.

Looking at the GameStop site listing of upcoming Wii U titles, the number of items that are either exclusive to the Wii U or will be best played there is rather short. It isn't as bad as the N64 launch, which was easily the most barren of any successful platform in gaming history, but I suspect the market is far less tolerant today than back then.

I'm very much a entry-level machinist, so I'm looking to test the waters with a CNC'd SX2. If I were to have a production demand, I'd ramp to an SX3 (or more) immediately.




Would you go some other direction for proof-of-concept machining?

We should let each other know if we see such a deal.

Some of the deals are externals, so, voided warranties and all that. Or if anybody just needs an external drive.

The last is a Tiger deal, with one of those lame-ass card rebates, but I think they usually pay. Just *sloooow*.

454 eww Tiger Direct

455 447 cthulhu

If you are using some sort of plastic or resin to make your proof-of-concept items, then a CNC's X2 might be an excellent choice. The primary limit would be the capacity of the X2 ... the table isn't very large.

Alternatively, there are 3-D printers. The Tech Shop has one.

If you are using aluminum, then a Super-X3 is probably a better choice. It is noticeably larger and has more power, and the extra power will translate to shorter milling times. But you have to pick and choose which Super X3 (CNC and kit) to get. If you can get something that has a 4000 or 5000 rpm maximum spindle speed, then your milling times might be very reasonable compared to an X2.

If you must cut steel, then an RF-45 is a better choice: a bit more power, and heavier, so accuracy will be better.

Even better is a CNC'd Bridgeport, or clone.

One of the problems is that "X2", X3" and so forth refer to Chinese-manufactured machines ... there appear to be multiple sources, and some are different enough that they are perhaps more like the next size ... and there are many sizes. Check the BF-20 and related series, RF-45, ... It takes a while to get everything straight.

Do some research at CNCZone.com. Check some of the YouTube videos to get an idea of what each machine will do.

The problem seems to be that under current standards, it maxes at 4T -- but if everything in development works out as planned, you might get 8T.

Posted by: cthulhu at January 17, 2013 02:39 AM (kaalw)

459 I like how it says it has up to 12Tb in the list, and in the first paragraph it says up to 9Tb.

Maybe they need an editor.

460 I've never had any problems with Tiger Direct in their CompUSA and Circuit City guises. Getting the drives for $100 each is intriguing, especially since I could keep the enclosures for the next time I have somebody migrating to a new machine. It's a simple way to turn an old drive into a backup unit.

I suppose I'd have to have one of them shipped to my job site to avoid using the same address on both rebates.

Posted by: epobirs at January 17, 2013 02:44 AM (kcfmt)

461 if it's not them being late with the shipment, it's been them doing the worst job possible in packaging for me when it comes to Tiger Direct. Throw in bad customer service and I won't do business with them ever again

465 The link I provided at Netgear gives confused descriptions of how many drives are supported. It also thinks there is three USB 2.0 ports rather than 2 2.0 ports and 1 3.0 port in front. (Unless they've used a blue connector incorrectly, which pisses the USB-IF.)

I'm pretty confident a 3 TB drive will work. The HCL lists several with an admonition that a firmware update may be required.

The best price I've seen so far but I'm holding out for it to get down around $100. The 1 TB models will be coming out soon and that should drive down the prices of the existing models a bit.

Also, Western Digital is getting into the hybrid drive business, so there will finally be some competitive pressure.

470 One minor annoyance, they charged more for shipping to my employer because it isn't a residential address. WTF? It's a little less than three bucks but still...

So, after rebates I should have 6 TB of NAS for about $215. Plus whatever I attach to the USB ports down the road. Especially if I upgrade my printer. And I'll have a pair of 3.5" USB 2.0 enclosures to reuse if they aren't too resistant to opening and resealing.

Not bad. Thanks for the research, Dude and Dark Lord.

Nicely produced and tightly reasoned little polemic on who gun control is the least-possibly focused thing to do with regard to violent crime, and asking why no one has taken credit for the 50% drop in violent crime in the US over the last 20 years.

The only problem is, the people behind these political moves don't give a damn about violent crime or murder. They're not stupid, they know what we could do to (at least in part) ameliorate these problems. And they're doing the *exact* opposite.

On purpose.

We've gone past the argument, it's time to say *no*, loudly and often.
