I bought an analogue panel meter recently that reads up to 60V DC full scale deflection. These are super handy for monitoring the supply rails in my #strowger #telephoneExchanges

What I love about this one is the tiny wee screw base lamps it uses for the scale illumination!

So smol!

I did some after hours window shopping downtown #Ypsilanti, #Michigan circa 2017.

This is a photo I got through the display window of a resale shop at night.

I thought this lamp sculpture thingy was awesome.

Horizontal color photo. The lamp has an S-shaped black metal stand. It has 2 short but wide cylindrical shades that fit into the S curves. The bottom left bulb is green. The top right bulb appears to be off, but that part of the frame is illuminated purplish pink.

Some phosphor dust coated tube in tubes. I was going to be filling them all today- but I forgot how unannealed borosilicate glass has a tendency to just crack on it's own when left for prolonged periods. I got the heat in part- but it's the heat out that I am forgetting.
Time to patch up cracks and wait for the kiln and technician stars to align once more. Excited to see how these coatings look.

Yesterday I managed to turn #esphome into a #wled knockoff. (Part of my #lamp system.) If anyone else is considering it, let me gently suggest No. It *technically works*, which is the worst kind of works.

Overlapping segments are great (really!) and way more reliable than switching presets, but that is where it stops. Mostly when wled Just Does, esphome+fastled Just Doesn't.

If you were hoping to piggyback additional capabilities, you should also know that 22 LEDs in pairs (plus "all") leaves about 9% free flash. This is not enough for audio, or most sensors. And of course control suffers.

That said, don't forget that every #ledstrip is also a #5v supply and there are no rules against putting multiple magic shards in a single object..

Nebenbei: Ich gehe jetzt mal davon aus, daß wir uns über "Shared Hosting" im #LAMP-Umfeld unterhalten. Also nichts Spezielles mit eigenen Servern oder großer Infrastruktur o.ä.

Today is being stressful so I think I'll make #chatgpt write descriptions for my #wled #lamp (plus some random remixes of other stuff) and get it all posted on #Printables.

Alternately I could tear the #prusa hot end apart, again, and try to stop the leak, again, but I would rather just save up to replace the whole extruder.

On the automation front, #Homeassistant has gotten more talkative with the new release. I converted all the existing #google #tts to use #selfhosted #piper and now Ryan has come to work for us.

I do miss some of our original voices though. `language: en-in` was our newscaster, `en-au` told us about weather and #BigEar cat tracker reports, etc. (If you are still using google, have some fun with #tts #accents. Try sending `language: fr` with English text. We had that voice assigned to turning off lights and reminding us to close doors, and occasionally filling in when the newscaster was "out sick".)

It is finally time for the next #WLED #lamp test print!

I've reworked the entire codebase (all couple hundred lines of it) but mostly I just tuned some of the tolerances and added a couple of new features.

This is the first print that is potentially complete enough to mount on the wall!

I spent the morning on #openscad trying to remember my #geometry homework from several decades ago, and it worked! I have all my core #wled #statusbar #lamp features basically appearing where and how I want! I'm not ready to send it to the #3dprinter again because I have some features to add, but now I can confidently direct them to any part of the object at any scale.

As a reward I'm going to spend the afternoon flying #fpv next to an #AirForce transmitter site.

Front aspect of the lamp illuminated.

The picture depicts a nude lady in classical pose sitting on a rock leaning over a small pond. 

She is covering her breasts with her right arm and watching eagerly the surface  of the pond.  

The shade/pond is made from stained glass in dark blue, azure, green, red pearl and orange tiffany and cathedral glass.  

The statue is made of copper powder and clear resin in 60-40% ratio

The base  structure and the pond is made with clay, wood and the same  copper powder and resin in 60-40%  ratio.
The rear side of the lamp. 

The entire project started in 2020 and finished only yesterday. 

The girl was designed in blender and a prototype was printed through a 3d printer. 

After further manipulation of the printed prototype with polymer clay, the statue was cut to pieces as the pose was too complicated for molding and then it was separately  molded. 

The blue oxidation was achieved with a mixture of Ammonia and salt.

My first attempt in cold-casting.

This lamp took me three years and numerous failures.

The girl and pose was created with blender then 3d printed.

The statue is made from 40% clear resin, 60% copper powder.

The base is made out of clay and wood which is covered also with with resin at same ratio.

The lamp shade is stained glass.

Does anyone know what this type of #lamp is called in English? I mean something more specific than just 'oil lamp'. In Persian it is called a 'gerd-suz', 'round burner'.

While the #Greek #magical papyri assume a knowledge of the modus operandi in lamp and bowl divination, this #Egyptian magical #papyrus describes it in great detail.

Free #translation with many comments and a detailed introduction to the papyrus:

#ancientmagic #egyptology #demotic #pgm #papyri #divination #lamp #bowl #ancient #papyrology

“(The London-Leiden Magical Papyrus) is closely connected with the Greek magical papyri from Egypt of the same period, but, being written in demotic, naturally does not reproduce the Greek hymns which are so important a feature of those papyri.
The influence of purely Greek mythology also is here by comparison very slight - hardly greater than that of the Alexandrian Judaism which has supplied a number of names of Hellenistic form to the demotic magician.
Mithraism has apparently contributed nothing at all; Christianity probably only a deformed reference to the Father in Heaven.
On the other hand, as might have been expected, Egyptian mythology has an overwhelmingly strong position, and whereas the Greek papyri scarcely go beyond Hermes, Anubis, and the Osiris legend, the demotic magician introduces Khons, Amon, and many other Egyptian gods.
Also, whereas the former assume a knowledge of the modus operandi in divination by the lamp and bowl, the latter describes it in great detail.”
Griffith, Thompson, The Demotic Magical Papyrus of London and Leiden (1904), p. v.

I remember when it was just #LAMP,* there were no frameworks for the backend, and there really wasn't any frontend programming at all. Those were the days!

There is a side effect of using @ddev - it will make you more techie!

On a serious note - you will not find a better local development solution! If you are into #LAMP #LEMP stack then this should be your local development environment.

It officially supports #WordPress #Drupal #Typo3 and many more. Well, any PHP application should just work!

I kind of forgot how annoying it is to maintain a server and why the shift to static site generators became popular. I used to write a lot of #LAMP #PHP #MYSQL projects, and while it's not terribly difficult to keep them running once they're up, the databases complicate things. Cost is also a big factor. It became much more desirable to convert a site to static HTML and host it on GitHub Pages because you never have to think about it again and it's free. #webdev #webdevelopment #html #databases

@peepstein @samim #Mastodon appears to me to be at stage B, with its two tier #instance/account distinction. #Friendica is also stage B, but maybe a baby step or so in the direction of stage C; as a #LAMP stack/shared #hosting friendly/non root installable app it has relatively low entry barriers to the #server side.

- Deploying websites with #FTP
- Using #LaTeX for middle school stuff

Fellow #webdev #nerds:

I'm looking to move my primary hosting off of #aws and onto something more cost efficient and less corporate.

Looking for suggestions for both:

Upgrading my methods of hosting and deploying as I know that I have built my empire on kludge.
Changing my hosting to somewhere not owned by billionaires. Not owned by capitalists at all would be great but probably unrealistic.

#webdev wise I work from a basic #linux (pick a flavor, any flavor) container with #apache that I throw up and either use #nodejs or #lamp (#wordpress, mostly) for whatever I'm working on. As I am old and cranky I prefer my containers to be as self-contained as possible.

I have a single micro instance running 24/7 that serves as a personal server. I would eventually like to set up some sort of distributed #fediverse project on it so I can reduce my data dependency on big corporations. I'll occasionally put up other instances as I'm working on projects, and pull them down when I'm done.

Because #networking is not my strong point I have a kludged together something in AWS using #ELB that is pretty expensive for the single instance and I'm sure is a large part of where I'm going wrong. My DNS is managed by Amazon but my domains are registered elsewhere. Everything else seems reasonable for what I'm paying.

Netlify looks interesting but also slick and corporate. I really just want something I can poke in a command line every now and again. Managed networking would be super-nice, managed servers not so much.
