  • Funny how we can be so different. 3 phases cat is excited that summer is coming and we in my part of the world are happy that we have had our first cold snap.
    First night I could sleep comfortably. The temperature at five am this morning was nineteen degrees C.It was wonderful.First time this year I had to put on a jacket.

        Sounds like you just need A/C...

        I don't think we're much different... 20C (~68F) is my ideal indoor temperature. I like my shop around 18C (~65F).
        In the winter I'll heat the house to 20C-21C (68F-70F) and in the summer cool it to 20C-23C (68F-74F).

        I really don't like anything hotter than 23C (~74F) indoors.

        EDIT: And I like to always set the car to 20C/68F rear-round.

        • Posted this video to YouTube today. I’ve never been a big fan of attaching inexpensive dial calipers to the tailstock for depth, so I seen another YouTube creators using an iGauge for a depth gage for carriage travel it gave me am idea.

          • Today I got a call from my mom saying that the $6000 waterproofing of her basement did not do its job. Water is leaking into both rooms in the area where they installed the waterproofing. That's the same two rooms were I spent a week last month rebuilding the false walls so that they had torn out to install their channel that was to route the water to the sump.

            The timing is perfect. Just last week she finally got the carpet reinstalled and some of the furniture moved back into those rooms.

            So today I will spend most of the day brooding over the lost effort and worrying about my mom's state of mind. At 86, she's not really up for all these disasters.
            At the end of the project, there is a profound difference between spare parts and left over parts.

            • Mid 70s today. Got some more yard work done. Sifter for soil excavated from base of old shed - I hadn't noticed that the wire cloth was not fully stapled:


              Looks pretty good without the rocks and junk:


              Spread it on the ugly lawn and added grass seed, although it's from last year and might not have much life in it:


              Cleaned up much of the hill. The ground cover seems to be Vinca (or Periwinkle):

                  Aw dude, sorry to hear that, it sucks. You put a lot of work and a lot of driving in.....and I whinge about the hour round trip for the jobs my mum comes up with! Hope it's sorted without the disaster it sounds like you're imagining it is.

                      He sees birdy num-nums, let me out damn it.

                        *shrug* I'd take glaring at the wildlife through the window over stepping on left-over pieces of it first thing in the morning!

                        • Played with some 5mW lasers today at lunch. The $10 units easily produce a clean < 1mm width line. The breadboard jumper wire pin is .6mm. Cool beans.

                            I was going to say that if only it were a dot, you'd have the answer to the cat staring out the window.....but I was beaten to the punch. Try ping-pong balls, they're great for cat distraction - keeps my 7 yo son happy too as he plays "catball" with him for ages*.

                            * "Ages" is a relative term. When it comes to 7 year olds, it usually equates to about 5 minutes of real time!

                              Yes, as soon as I powered a laser up, the cat came right over to investigate

                              • replaced the front disk and pads on my road bike (did the rear on Sunday) so no more playing Jingle Bells as I come to a stop. Also upgraded to a 180mm front disk, up from 160mm, for some more emergency stopping power.
