Coding on Saturday

It is one of those "where do I start" days.
You wake up and start doing things, but the more you look around, the more you think of more things that need done.
My first priority is going to be completion of piACC.

2018

To 2018 I say:

3DP=End Of Me

So after numerous days of trying to get my 3D Printer back in order, I am still having problems.
It all started with a new spool of black filament.
The day before I was printing like a madman with only a few hiccups.
Change the spool and now nothing works as expected. Curled edges, bad lines, gaps in print.
Could a new spool really cause this much controversy?

Me, get a Mac? Never..

The Story..

Well it turns out that contrary to my own opinion, I am now an Apple product owner. argh.
Only out of the necessity to code IOS mobile applications, I have broken down and purchased a Mac Air. argh again.

Vacation

Final vacation for the year.
Time to make plans... Snorkeling in the Bahamas? Skiing in the Swiss Alps? a visit to the Grand Canyon? ..nope.
Write more code?... yep.

This final week of vacation of the year I need to wrap up piACC.
I have the current version/components working as expected in my vehicle and it is all working as expected.

(cue the sad music)
However, It is a bloated console version....

Coding and more coding

So.. I have mostly been working on piACC.
The console is done, the mobile android app is done, the relay min is done, the console min is done.. pretty much all there is at this time.

Fairwell Friend..

There are only a handful of things in your lifetime that you can say that have truly touch your heart.
You, my friend, were one of them.
You will be missed!

Trip to the candy store

So, today was a mix of getting things ready for winter and a trip to Micro Center.
An hour and a few hundred dollars later, I was able to stock up on pi stuff.
I picked up 5 pi zeros (with header). These are needed to make some prototype units for consistency and testing. The first being a pi zero version of the piACC console.

What a day

Yesterday turned out to be a pretty bad day.
First off, I started adding additional steps to the pi-lite config for QCPM as I stepped through getting the service to work, only to be presented with another site DB failures. If you tried to hit the site yesterday it was probably down. I got to the point where I quit calling on it because it usually clears soon.

Fub Duck

So... Fub Duck showed up yesterday.
For me, there have only been rare occasions when a pre-release has not gone off as planned and had to be cancelled. Actually, now that I think about it, never. Maybe I am slipping... Arg
  • Fub 1: Prod DB Connection issues due to TLS. Arg
  • Fub 2: A missing component update somehow got excluded. Arg.
