@email:t2bot.ioEmail Notifier Florencia Edwards <floev22@gmail.com> [hackerspaces] Your thoughts on the hack attempts of Covid Vaccine and the option of an open source vaccine
View this message online at https://email.t2bot.io/m/222dc53b-e26c-4812-9c4d-40b343b562ef
Hi all, just read about the hack attempts of the vaccine secrets, and I've
also been reading about the idea of an open source vaccine. What are your
thoughts on what is happening in this regard? I'm invited to a podcast
today to talk about this and I wanted the perspective of the hackerspace
community:

Here are both news as a reference:

@email:t2bot.ioEmail Notifier Danilo <mail@dbrgn.ch> [hackerspaces] Choosing a laser cutter, 2021 edition
View this message online at https://email.t2bot.io/m/462fa6f2-55bb-4cce-b958-8adc7b052393
Hi folks, happy new year!

About five years ago, this ML discussed where to best get a laser cutter.

At Coredump hackerspace we're also thinking about buying one. Here are our goals:

- At least 40x60cm working area, a bit larger would be better (but <100cm)
- Adjustable bed
- At least 50W
- Air assist
- Ruida controller
- Nice to have: Autofocus
- Budget: Ideally around 2500 CHF / 2800 USD total cost (including shipping, modifications, etc) but 3000 CHF / 3300 USD would probably work as well

The obvious choice nowadays would be the generic Chinese 50-60W Blue-White/Yellow-Black lasers by Orion Motor Tech (aka OMTECH), the bigger versions of the K40. I found a lot of good guides on YouTube[0][1] and they seem to be very affordable (as long as you're ready to do some fixing and mods yourself). However, Amazon doesn't really ship to Switzerland, and I haven't found many Ebay sellers that look serious and who ship to Switzerland. The ones I found are from non-EU eastern Europe or China, so I probably wouldn't have any advantage compared to directly ordering from China.

[1] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qHclUKSMzqY

That reminded me of the G.Weike recommendation that a few of you posted on here in the previous e-mail thread. Their machines do seem to look very solid[2], but maybe outside our budget? (It's a bit hard to find actual prices on Alibaba.)

[2] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xp4tMvWjSNs

That brings me to my five questions:

- In 2021, would you still recommend G.Weike, or is Orion a better deal?
- Do you have links to Ebay or Alibaba sellers that ship Orion lasers internationally and with whom you've made good experiences?
- Do you have a contact at G.Weike with whom you've made good experiences?
- Any other laser recommendations?

Cheers and have a safe 2021,
Danilo

View this message online at https://email.t2bot.io/m/391d36b1-e615-422d-97d2-c011d2915069
Dear maker, hacker, mender, tinkerer

This is a call for you to take part in a survey.

Given the current pandemic situation, where many makerspaces are closed to slow down the spread of Covid-19, this survey provides a space for you to share your thoughts. How do you experience this situation, where you are unable to visit your local makerspace or open workshop?

The survey is part of a research project at the Department of Human Geography in Lund, Sweden.

Here you find the survey and as well as further information: https://sunet.artologik.net/lu/Survey/32011/en

Please share the invitation with others who might have something to say on the matter.

I'm looking forward to receiving your answers!

View this message online at https://email.t2bot.io/m/c1435036-da10-4da8-ab63-86bb1c80e36a
*TL;DR: What non-fall-arrest-requring ways would you suggest cleaning the exterior of the fixed half of a sash window?*

Hi folks,

I've finally outgrown the flat opp. Summerhall, so I'm moving! This means I need need to tackle the elephant that is clean my windows.

In normal non-*gestures at the whole situation* times, I'd probably just harness up and borrow the appropriate temporary fall arrest gear from work - perhaps buy my upstairs neighbors a case of beer in return for letting me put a pair of parapet clamp anchors on their window sill, or a doorjamb anchor, or something similar.

However - there is a pandemic on and it's been a year since I've done *any* work at height, let alone actually doing any complex ropework, so I turn to the ehlab-and-adjacent hivemind - how would you attack this problem?

Cheers,

Yo.

Sujet passionnant. j'ai fait un flash talk sur ça au THSF 2015 ou 14
j'ai zappé l'année.

étant programmeur et mécontent du système d'elections actuel... j'ai
pensé à quelques solutions possibles.

un site européen ayant pour but de contruire une base de
sujets/questions +arguments m'a surpris en ayant la même idée que moi
(je vais chercher l'URL).

j'avais acheté le domaine decidea.org et en un an il m'a été impossible
de programmer le moindre prototype pour des raisons perso. j'ai laché
l'affaire et zappé.

je n'ai pas encore lu vos mails mais je réponds direct :

https://fr.wikidebates.org/

vous connaissez au moins !? non ? ;)

my 2 cents.

Hi ! (just noticed the that the discussion was a bit old, nvm, it's cool.)

Sorry about not speaking english. This thread is about "decision making
with the help of software".

Huuuuuge subject, even treated in movies, animes, books, etc. (do we
need IA for this ?)

I'v found the software I'm talking about below : echo.to. the website
seems to have disapeared surely because of RoR ! ;D not kidding, the
project took some money from EU and disapeared ! that's not cool at all.

I'v found traces of it on way back machine :
https://web.archive.org/web/*/http://echo.to

The project code is still online on github :
https://github.com/echosystem/echo

Anyway, "WikiDebats" is better and alive ! Big up to the people behind
it ! <3 !

https://fr.wikidebates.org/wiki/Portail:D%C3%A9bats

(one of my favorite question is :
https://fr.wikidebates.org/wiki/Dieu_existe-t-il_%3F

but there's a lot of other ones that deserve much attention.)

I feel you men.

1/ stop beer

2/ build a giant robot

3/ pilot the giant robot from you computer.

easy.

or

don't clean it. dirty things are cool, they have a spirit who says "fuck the system I'm dirty !".

troll aside : you could cut a long stick of wood like 5m or more and do it from the ground (and don't stop beer).

cheers.

One of these might not be the worst idea:

window glass is usually a twin wall though so it might not be strong enough.

Tetalab's containers are inside Mix'Art Myrys (and depend on this collective). The symbiosis works.

The problem is mainly technical, about the roof of the factory which is toxic. Add Covid19 crisis on top of that...

View this message online at https://email.t2bot.io/m/74f738ed-1108-415d-95c9-c670258ef50b
Hello all!

Does your hackerspace have a large pile of empty 3D printing filament reels
stashed after the CV19 PPE printing efforts? Here at Midsouth Makers
, we have several giant trash bags worth. We're
sending our collected empty filament reels to IC3D Printers, a filament
manufacturer & print services bureau in Columbus Ohio. Disclosure, I'm
lucky enough to work with them.

If you'd like to help keep any IC3D and Micro Center Inland brand empty
filament reels out of the landfill and give them new life, they'll be used
to spool Recycled PETG filament and sent out for reuse.

More details & to sign up for the experimental launch of the Spool Return
System:
https://www.ic3dprinters.com/introducing-the-ic3d-spool-return-system/


If you'd like to deliver the empty IC3D/Inland brand filament reels to
Columbus, Ohio in person, IC3D is hosting a socially-distanced Open House,
RSVP here: https://www.ic3dprinters.com/event/first-annual-spool-return-day/


Happy hacking!
