CHAT TEXT LOG

hey can’t hang out with the robots anymore
6:50 Miaximus: The demon of live demons
6:50 Jac_Goudsmit: junk ftw
6:50 fightcube: as long as they work
6:50 zool: haha nice
6:50 socket11: I love the duck tape!
6:50 hjohnson_1: Ahh, if he’s not doing CNC routing, not as much torque needed.
6:50 scott-42: From Clay http://sharpmemorylcd.com/1-35-inch-memory-lcd.html
6:51 hammerhead74k: Suggestion: switch to leadscrews. 1/4-20 allthread and steel T-nuts from the hardware store work.
6:51 scott-42: The 3V only parts are just sampling now (p/n: LS013B4DN04), but the 3V/5V combo parts are available to purchase (Mouser has ’em– p/n: LS013B4DN02)
6:51 LapsusAntepedis: Testing
6:52 usunoro: hi lapsus
6:52 LapsusAntepedis: Hi 😀
6:52 Jac_Goudsmit: lol improvised show and tell

6:53 scott-42: yes Walter, WE WWANT WALTER
6:53 RobotGrrl: WALTER
6:54 Nashblackcat: http://letsmakerobots.com/node/28262
6:54 Nashblackcat: $20 bucks ?!?!
6:54 Nashblackcat: 🙂
6:54 socket11: cool
6:55 hammerhead74k: I’ve got one around here… somewhere…
6:55 mjusticz: Protip: for a better chance at the contest, refresh the stream a minute or two before it begins, so you get a stream without lag
6:55 forsetifox: Awww.
6:56 socket11: Beer run!!!
6:56 zool: lol
6:56 scott-42: @socket11 I like where you head it at. Good call.

7:17 AngrySpinach: ow plastic
7:17 Cadmandu: Bye.
7:17 jkCBWPnet: sandy squirrel made one of those
7:17 richms: just look how much and cheaper photoprinting has got for in home etc
7:17 physics_dude: printed tea FTW!
7:17 clothbot: microfluidics, ftw!
7:17 socket11: Super kenkic light camera! LOL love it!
7:17 richms: better and cheaper I mean
7:18 yardleydobon: hot? of course it’s hot!
7:18 Hooloovoo: 3 actually
7:18 georgegraves: “Maker” INVENT billboards in the San Francisco: http://www.adafruit.com/blog/2011/07/31/maker-invent-billboards-in-the-san-francisco/
7:18 rsbohn: Some folks like iced tea.
7:18 AngrySpinach: Or a question mark
7:18 hammerhead74k: It’s only hot if the replicator is working right…
7:18 AngrySpinach: Invent?
7:18 ericwertz: there’s a sign like that a few blocks away from me in San Jose
7:18 mryan923: its cool
7:18 DrenBoy: OMFG!!!!!
7:18 DrenBoy: he finally did it!!!!!
7:18 AngrySpinach: Want
7:18 georgegraves: http://www.tvbgone.com/downloads/hackerpass/hackerpass.htm

7:19 mark8675: Invent as spoken by William Shatner
7:19 socket11: Go to another hackerspace and make friends!
7:19 AngrySpinach: YAY EUROPE
7:19 addidis: this is neat , if only it didnt need an i device
7:19 Hooloovoo: I just downloaded that app today
7:19 RobotGrrl: it is awesome
for iPad?
7:20 mryan923: Q: Will Adafruit be @ NYC Makerfaire
7:20 georgegraves: http://www.adafruit.com/blog/2011/08/03/circuit-sidekick-for-ipad/
7:20 Jac_Goudsmit: iCantUseIt
7:20 fightcube: I have EE Toolkit on my iPhone… it’s Packed with calculators and very nice
7:20 AngrySpinach: lol
7:20 richms: I cant tell most of the purple resistors from brown half the time
7:20 physics_dude: lol @ Jac
7:20 ktownsend: electrodroid is pretty amazing for Android
7:20 lominsky-1: i’ve always thought google goggles should recognize resistors
7:20 georgegraves: http://www.adafruit.com/blog/2011/07/31/github-badges-adafruit/
7:20 Jac_Goudsmit: No Apple devices in my house
7:20 socket11: Droid has a couple good ones.
7:20 ericwertz: like the sqat logo
7:20 swantron: ditto ktownsend
7:21 macman320: Ya, electro droid is a great android app
7:21 socket11: Always give credit!
7:21 addidis: gotta switch to headphones brb
7:21 hammerhead74k: The problem with resistor color codes is that the colors vary in hue…
7:21 AngrySpinach: Electronics Assistant is great
7:21 mryan923: you will
7:22 AlbertStraub: I wonder why they never dumped the color code and just printed the numbers on? I mean SMD resistors have the numbers printed on. The color code must be from the days when you couldn’t print fast.
7:22 mryan923: git hub is messed up on my computer
7:22 AngrySpinach: Dear Mr Jobs…
7:22 macman320: lol
7:22 Miaximus: I buy from Adafruit unless you dont have it!
7:22 georgegraves: https://github.com/adafruit
7:22 hjohnson_1: “Hey, sony, where’s your github repository.. oh wait.. oh god… Please don’t sue me!”
7:22 richms: AlbertStraub there is no top on a thruhole so it could endup hard to read on a board
7:22 AngrySpinach: lol
7:22 hammerhead74k: http://www.apple.com/opensource/
7:22 macman320: what doesent exist?!?!!?!?
7:22 zerth: in russia, they print the # on the resistors
7:23 addidis: hehhehe
7:23 ransomhall-1: nice, git me some russian resistors!
7:23 AngrySpinach: sony smells
7:23 AngrySpinach: This is great software
7:23 socket11: Got a picture of a russian resistor?
7:23 physics_dude: Linux FTW!
7:23 macman320: YES
7:23 LapsusAntepedis: what the
