Considering that I'd be working from the uphill end of the pipe, I'd potentially be blasting it with water and then trying to wet vac it back out or something. I haven't even been able to find the downhill end of the pipe. We had a quick thunderstorm last evening, and there isn't standing water in the hole I dug, so maybe it's magicking itself back to working.

Nope. Still just as clogged as it had been.

Neighbor lady's son-in-law pointed out this small hole in the bank of the creek and said that's where the pipe comes out. However, I dug it out a good foot and a half to two feet into the hillside and found no trace of pipe. So either he's wrong or it rusted away to literally nothing.

Supposedly, the county screwed up the creek when they put in a sewage line crossing the creek, through the path of the water, causing the level of the creek to rise a good foot or two, allowing the creek to block the exit of the drain pipe with mud.

I think it would be feasible to cut a ditch from about half to two-thirds the way from the wall to the creek, and just tear that section of pipe out and have the rest of it empty into the ditch. This should keep the end of the remaining pipe above the level of the creek. However, neighbor lady's daughter was having none of it. (Neighbor lady is 81, so not making many decisions for herself.) This situation has been going on forever, and they've basically just accepted it.

Supposedly, the family knows everyone in the county courthouse and several members are taskmasters (?) in some unintelligible local organization. So hooray there.

Son-in-law did confirm my suspicions that the basement flooding and the water that flows through the garage are the results of groundwater. Not sure if we could put in a pipe to try and collect it and direct it elsewhere, or how expensive doing that would be.

It can still be useful to have an idea on which parts of an engine are heating up faster than the surrounding parts. (and i'm obviously not talking of the cylinders)
That way you have some idea where the loss/inefficiency in the system is.

Obviously not a solves-all solution, but it can help you get situated.

  here is the boss of the NRA defending our paid russian shill president from the evil mainstream media. what has chump done for gun rights so far? nothing. whats he going to do? nothing. why is the NRA shilling for him? as they as corrupt as he is?
the NRA openly shilling for a known foreign pawn, thats what constitutes patriotism to them? and you expect these people to be your barrier between the bill of rights and tyranny?
save the AWB expiration, there was no progress of gun rights during the bush years either & for the same reason.
when can we finally start holding the Republican's feet to the fire on gun laws and get some real progress? it seems like its going to take the elimination of the NRA for that to ever happen

Probably feeling like all those gun store owners who ordered massive stocks of ARs right before the election because they thought Hitlery would win and they'd make metric asstons of money, loads of it.

Now they are sitting on stock nobody is really buying and what little they are selling they aren't making much profit on.

the sad part of this that guns are one thing that the whole republican party agrees on and could pass quickly with the help of the few reliably pro gun democrats. all that other tax & healthcare shit isn't going to go anywhere.

>>109836
it used to be that some gun owners were upset with the NRA for being too pro-industry & not an actual gun owners rights organization (which is total bullshit, sometimes supporting the owners requires supporting the industry, life is complicated especially byzanitne to the mandarinth power DC politics)
now they're complaining that the industry isn't getting enough support? you can't have it both ways. part of why the NRA isn't as effective as it could be is lack of grassroots support, they really need you to reach out to your dudes & ask for legalized 20mm shit, lower fees, full auto, etc. or whatever the fuck it is you want changed. just paying the fee doesn't buy all that much in terms of the amount of cocaine & hookers required to make something happen in washington, they need further assistance.

Depends. If it's an obvious user error, duh. But if the problem lies with flawed tempering or such, it's the maker. I've agreed to refund or fix any structural problems that occur within six months of delivery, but so far never had to do that.

I've only done practice weapons for clients so far, so I can make some parts slightly more idiot proof. Not quite comfortable enough with my skill level to sell sharp swords to people yet.

Most of the time I've only made hilts anyway, separately bought blades are relatively cheap and there's always someone who wants to be different.
>> No. 109781 ID: 813f6b

What if a blade were to fail during normal use, and it's clearly your fault. Would you be liable for whatever personal damage occurs? (like the blade goes *SPROING* and takes out someone's eye)

Tricky question. Most HEMA clubs teach the importance of the salute before doing anything during a session. It's more than just a greeting though; it's an aknowledgement that we're dealing with things that hurt and kill people, and a pre-emptive apology for any actual damage that might be caused unintentionally. If that's followed to the letter, that would release me from responsibility. Were that to happen for real, I would do what's in my ability to help the victim.

Of course, living in a country with free healthcare helps a lot with that conviction, but it's more a matter of professional pride.

Pic related. Not the one I'm taking home at the end of the week but same model 206RB-5

Boss is selling me a brand new sewing machine w/table & motor for $300. Thing is only 2 years old but never got used much due to her not liking the PWM motor (as opposed to a clutch type motor on her old machines). I can sew on it just fine so I'm getting it and getting it cheap.

First thing will be me making myself curtains and a messenger bag. After that I want to start making one off waxed canvas custom bags.

Kinda want to know what people here might be interested in. I'm assuming rifle bags are a given but I wouldn't mind some other ideas. Keep in mind the 206RB-5 is a medium duty machine. It doesn't handle light clothing fabrics well and it can't do leather all the time (a Pfaff 545 or a Singer 7-31 would be more suited for that). It does the middle of the road canvas and semi-thick webbing.

If you're looking for a relatively easy pattern, I've made an Alaskan packboard linked below and I actually really like it. Big limitation is the straps, which you'd want to make a slip-over padding for the shoulders and long enough to wrap on the waist. There's a million variations with different pockets and such, so maybe there's something there. I've also seen versions with pop-riveted aluminum frames, which at that point you're starting to transition into ALICE territory.

I understand there's some subset of the programming world where you basically agree to complete a given set of tasks by a given date for a given amount of money and that's it. Some kind of contract programming. It would be nice to code at home and to be sure that my being legally blind doesn't really come into the equation, besides figuring out how much time I need to budget for the given task, for myself. How does this kind of thing work? How can one get into this kind of work?

I feel like this was the background for this thread >>107629, and I distinctly remember someone on here desperately needing a new graphics card because they were in the middle of a project like this and if they didn't get it done on time, they wouldn't be paid. So, please, tell me more.
>> No. 109668 ID: b75cd2
I tried getting into programming a couple times, but it never really made any sense to me. I don't have interests or desires that require programming knowledge, and most of the tools I would want already exist and are free to use. On top of that, the barrier to entry is tall, and past basic cs classes, the layers of abstraction get really intense. Arduino projects are usually interesting, but those are more elctro-mechanical systems rather than strict software challenges.

Eve Online is a good playground for test programs. There are a lot of APIs available to pull data from, and a lot of opportunities for cost trackers and calculators. I imagine other MMOs are similar. But at the end of the day, what end goal are you working for besides "I want to code better". If you want a career, I suggest you take classes because that is the best way to learn about things like algorithms, machine learning, systems and database management, which are the in demand fields of work.

Correct. Currently the only way to ghetto-rig FA without receiver modifications is with an increasingly-rare Colt SP1-spec BCG and a Lightning Link.

Honestly, just buy a 3MR drop in trigger and use that. No threat of buttrape prison and it works almost as well as the real thing.
