DIY electronics and Insurance
  • It sounds awesome. First I would explain how difficult it is for low voltage to cause fires. If that doesn't work, maybe make a demo of a catastrophic failure (dead short) of your 5v brick, maybe he'll see that doesn't cause a fire. Or finally maybe encase the power brick and control circuitry in a metal container?

  • Refinishing this little table/desk for my young kid. What will yield a fine-not-perfect result?
  • Forget the chemicals, you'd need to be an expert to insure a good finish after strippers. Sanding should do nicely and not be too hard - it's also one of the steps kids can help with. From the looks of it sanding by hand or with a jitterbug should be enough. Sand with the grain. Maybe 120-150 grit until it's uniform and then 220. Use a tack rag to get the dust off. Then stain if you want and then the poly, at least 3 coats with a very light sanding between them - follow the instructions on the can.

    British-Cypriot writer Alex Christofi has documented the decay of a once-elegant town, abandoned when Turkey invaded in 1974

    Glamour to ghost town: the fate of one Cypriot beach resort – in pictures

    Once a glamorous destination that attracted the likes of Elizabeth Taylor and Abba, the Cypriot resort of Varosha was abandoned on 14 August 1974 when Turkey invaded. For 50 years, the town has been deserted, but in 2020 it was opened up to tourists.

    Clerical error was behind Michigan man’s viral suspended license hearing
  • Are you defending the botched legal process and suggesting that it deserves more respect than the man who is in fact in the right? That we should continue to obey even when it's wrong?

    The man also knew that his license was not in fact suspended in any legitimate way. If I was the victim of failed bureaucracy for months I would ignore it too.

  • What is Web 3.0?
  • In my mind (56yo programmer), web 1.0 was static web pages and server side stuff (e.g. PHP) only. Web 2.0 was AJAX (server fetches via JavaScript) and then the resulting APIs. To me Web 3.0 aught to be a similarly massive change in how information is delivered.

  • On self-driving, Waymo is playing chess while Tesla plays checkers
  • And he forgets to mention the precise mapping required too. He also left out the terrible experiences Waymo has had with revoked permits, cars disabled by traffic cones, and multiple traffic stopping glitches where intersections were blocked for hours.

  • Am I the only one whose "shorts" feed is all basically softcore porn?

    I almost never watch "shorts" but my suggestions for it seem to have an...uhhh...adult theme. I don't watch any such thing with YouTube. Does everyone see garbage like this?
