Pinned post

I finished planting the tank last night, added a few snails, and got the CO2 dialed in. I'll wait a few weeks to let it cycle some more and settle in before I add fish. I'm thinking this would be a good dwarf pea puffer environment.

Finished the . Added a shade and it came out pretty good. Now I can add plants and fish to the tank. Was a fun project. Can't wait to develop the design further.

Cooling fan controller works well on the . I reappropriated a PWM dimmer switch from an old LED controller. I had tried to use a small cheap buck converter at first to regulate the fan voltage to control its speed but little did I know that you need to pull at least 10% load for the converter to work properly and the little 150 mA fan wasn't that powerful. 1 tiny fire/burned board later and here we are with a different solution.

is just about complete. Need some hardware to hang it and put the top and shade on. Full parts list coming.

PETG component box printed for . I'll finish wiring and hopefully should be hanging above my tank tonight. This prototype will be replaced by one that is fully , shade and all. That one will be nylon.

If you live in the North area, my mom is trying to find a home for this sweet girl that wandered up to her house a couple of months ago. She's a year or younger and very friendly. We couldn't find her owner and she is just too much for my mom to handle at her age.

I've finally got PETG to where it's not perfect but at least serviceable, if a little fuzzy. This is the hardest filament I've had to work with, but I need it's heat resistance for the components enclosure for the . This is all I was waiting for now I can complete the rest of the project.

Just throwing this out there if anyone has some suggestions. How would you go about either encrypting, spoofing, or anonymizing your metadata when making mobile phone calls? Also doing this without having the receiver installing some kind of third party app? The only thing I could come up with is having a PBX server that would be a sort of man in the middle to anonymize the originator, but then you have the issue of obtaining a number for it that would not be tied to you. Any suggestions?

Lenses are finally here and main board replaced in printer. project can proceed
