Spirilis
hah nice
Rickta59
my head is kind of light
Spirilis
do they do speed cameras down there?
Rickta59
i don't know
Spirilis
speed cameras are just an insult to humanity
Rickta59
i haven't got any tickets
the reason they put the speed thing there .. is a bunch of my neighbors want to put speed bumps on the main road
i'm like WTF
they tell me everyone speeds through there
Spirilis
maryland's all about that sh*t, speed cameras all over Montgomery County, Frederick City is getting them, and they've deployed "mobile speed cameras" mounted to the front of some template craptastic american made SUV in all the highway construction zones
Rickta59
i never see it
nazi state
Spirilis
hah
yeah basically
Rickta59
and they call this merica
Spirilis
bunch of sh*t
Rickta59
my neighors are idiots
and the 1 guy who does speed through is an idiot
Spirilis
america needs to come to terms with the fact that we're no longer a land of the free, except for a few token things like "freedom of the press"
Rickta59
so the 999 have to pay for him
Spirilis
right
Rickta59
yeah well jeff bezo will have to fix that
the funny part
the people complaining are the ones who slapped 10 house in where there was 3 lots
and it used to be just forest there
Spirilis
aye
that kind of stuff is starting to irk me too as I get older
leave the forests alone
Rickta59
there is one guy i really pissed off
he is blind
and i know him
from when he wasn't blind
he was duke research lab scientist
Spirilis
ah
Rickta59
but now he wants the world to be perfect for him
except he bought a house on a main drag
Spirilis
that's gotta suck having to adjust to a world of being blind
lol
Rickta59
and there are no sidewalks
i was like wtf do you think is going to happen
and there are 3 major roads between him and where he wants to walk
so even if he gets sidewalks and speed bumps
he going to get hit by a truck at the major streets
i was like why don't we just ban all cars
and he was all for that
no matter what we do he isn't going to be safe
so i need to come up with a speed tracking device
Spirilis
yeah that's darwin award material there
Rickta59
that sprays offending cars with a sign ..
you di*k head slow down
as it passes by
dot matrix style
Spirilis
you could find yourself buying a lot of paint to keep that going
Rickta59
:)
there is this one woman ..
can't tell where she is from
came in on a boat ... * lots of people here arrive on a sail boat and stay
but she is such is c&nt
she is the one ochestrating all this
orchestrating
Spirilis
heh
Rickta59
so i can't decide if i should paper over the sensor on the speed thing
or wait till late at night and speed down at 90 mph
Spirilis
pop it open and give it a 120V shock
Rickta59
i'm getting old though
i could only get it up to 21mph
Spirilis
a sport touring bike could change that
Rickta59
heh .. when i was younger .. * eyes go glassey dreaming of younger days
Spirilis
rip through there with a Honda ST1300
Rickta59
yeah i'm riding a mountain bike
but i only have about a 100 ft stretch
Spirilis
attach an air tank and rigid pipe out the back, fill it with compressed air and use it for a rocket boost :D
Rickta59
heh
those hub motors seems sneaky
Spirilis
yeah I have been curious about those
expensive but neat
super compact engineering
Rickta59
i wonder how much boost you could get doing some simple coils and disk drive moters
magnets
not moters
Spirilis
lol build a weird sort of external brushless dc motor out of magnets and coils
Rickta59
yeah like that
Spirilis
magnets on the wheel spokes, coils being pulsed by an MCU
Rickta59
you got it
Spirilis
that is a neat idea
Rickta59
just a hedge against the wind
Spirilis
so long as you don't end up applying so much torque you bend the spokes :D
Rickta59
i do that with my weight : )
Spirilis
lulz
Rickta59
maybe i counter my effect
zlalanne
Rickta59 just saw your message. They fixed in a CCS update?
Rickta59
yes it appears to have just asm("wfi") now
@ zlalanne
zlalanne
okay cool, didn't realize an update went out
Rickta59
i think i got it yesterday
just tried the msp432 code today
oh wait
nm
not sure what i was looking at ..
false praise .. i take it back
