Seeedstudio Serial LCD module ... can I have it back?

Many months ago, a couple makers were working on a zero-crossing 120VAC dimmer. I lent them a serial LCD (16x2) with a TTL serial backpack on it. Unfortunately, it's been so long that I forgot who it was I lent it to. Since I'm building things for Christmas presents this year, I'd appreciate it if I...

Re: Opportunity: A space you could park a bus in

Is this blue moon still in phase? I may be in for a share, if you can come up with a few other participants.

Re: Be careful at intersection near Hack Factory

What's needed is speed-sensitive tire spikes. Fail to stop? Get a couple flats.

Re: Class: CNC Engraving with Inkscape

I will be at the Hack Factory tonight for the follow-up class to last week's CNC Engraving with Inkscape. We'll be trying a simplified version with just text. If you want to do graphics, we can do that later down the road, 1-on-1 or in smaller groups.

EDIT: Probably around 7:00PM.

Re: Class: CNC Engraving with Inkscape

The design can look like whatever you want it to. As an example of engraved pine, here's something I did for a coat rack project just a couple weeks ago.

Re: What do we need for the network?

The problem with the vault is getting cabling in there. Those walls are thick, and solid (as far as I know ). There's electricity in there. I'm betting there might be some wiggle room near the conduit for cat5e/cat6. If not, I bet we could find a hammer drill - after all, that's what they're for. ;...

Re: Seward Art Crawl @ Hack Factory: Fri.-Sat., Dec. 2-3, 20

Are there plans to restore the spoonapult? It looks a little worse for wear, but it should probably make an appearance - after all, it's one of our iconic pieces, like the Operation game.

Re: What do we need for the network?

Not sure if it's there already or not, but integration between DHCP and DNS, such that when a client requests a lease with its hostname "foo", it then becomes accessible by internal DNS as foo.hf.tcmaker.org" or something. This would enable ssh/scp/ftp to the CNC machines for file tra...

Brother label maker in black camera bag

Sometime in the last few weeks, I've misplaced my little label maker. It lives in a black camera bag with a Rev 105 keychain on it. If someone has seen it at the shop, I'd be most grateful if you'd put it on my shelf near Chico (the little CNC router).

Thanks much!

Re: Sandblasting Station

Everyone keep your nut material away from metis. ... and me as well. I've never had problems with a specific species of wood being turned/sanded, but I built the air cleaner for just that reason. If folks would turn on the air cleaner whenever they are cutting, turning, sanding or otherwise making ...
