Btw all, the stuff of john's in sudo room is unfortunately Sudo's / Omni's
responsibility to remove.
If you are waiting for him to do it.. or pay for someone to do it.. ain't
Sudo should take everything it doesn't want of johns and centralize it into
one area if possible so its clear what is wanted of john's and what is not.
Things like pallets should be put outside. Of course, I have heard there is
a family of rats living in the stack of pallets by the SE corner of Sudo,
so Sudo / omni may want to call pest control for some advice first. But
regardless, Sudo should I think try not to mix in the stuff it wants, or
its own stuff, with john's stuff it doesn't want. Let's get all the crap we
don't want out of there. That stuff can be put in the utility room or the
ballroom. This would be a very good project for Sudoers who are wondering
how they can help. Go for it!
I don't know where to put all the bikes and stuff (kind of hidden behind
the back curtain) on the stage, as well as all the sudo drumkits and
things, so that I can start making the stage a workshop for doing carpentry
and other needed work on the omni (as per my previous email)
I will have to put these things in sudo somewhere.. but, I don't know the
best place - I will just have to stack them somewhere in that room.
So, if you are looking for you on-the-stage things, look in Sudo now?
Awesome! Please bring them to Sudo when you get the chance. Thx!

I just got back from HOPE last week and i have some renewed energy to
bring back a hackmeet type event. There will be a name change, now known
as RiotCon. The emphasis will be on art, society, hacking, and rupture.
I'd love to host it at sudoroom, but i don't know if that viable yet.
Looking at doing it early next year most likely.
If you're interested in helping plan it, let me know.
that's a really neat welder! If you want to tune it up and make it work
better, you might want to replace the tube that the wire gets pushed
through. When it develops friction, the drive wheel can't push the wire
Fortunately the tube can be replaced with bicycle brake cable! Just get
some of the good stuff (teflon lined) from a bike shop, and razor off the
rubber coating so it fits in place of the original hose. The welder will
work better than new!
As for the flux-core wire, it is very dangerous to use that indoors,
because the flux is for preventing oxidation - and our lungs need to
oxidize! So it should never be used indoors (and using it outdoors will
require a shield so passersby don't see the arc)
At some point we should talk about making a ventilated corner of sudoroom,
where welding and other fume-producing tasks can take place. Hell, maybe
the Robot will be welding by then.
i brought in a small wirefeed welder. it uses fluxcore wire so doesn't
require a shield gas, just turn it on, clamp the ground to your work,
point and click. the wheel that drives the wire from the box through the
cable to the gun doesn't have very good traction, so check there if the
wire doesn't feed. the welder uses 17 amps so only use directly plugged
into an outlet (!!!)
bring steel! the antique saw actually works really well for cutting
stock down to size
Thanks for documenting whats happening w the Robot, Jake. Its like a little movie script in my mind. :)

omg i think i figured out what's wrong
it's not throwing errors for servos 1 and 2 of the robot, it's referring
to the two motors that are not connected, they were part of the assembly
line. We actually have the controllers for both, they were in that huge
metal box I put on the curb (after taking them out) but we only have one
of the motors and anyway...
on page 28 of http://servo-repair.com/documents/yaskawa/CACR-SR.pdf
(labeled page 23 in the document) it shows the pins of the connector for
the errors we're getting.
I think if i short the right pins on the connectors, the errors will go
away and it will think the two missing servo controllers are happy, even
though we don't actually want to hook them up to anything.
unfortunately, reconfiguring the ERC controller to know that it doesn't
have two extra motors would require changing the EPROM, and even if we had
a ROM burner handy I wouldn't know what to change.
Does anyone want to play with the robot arm?
