    My Shop Notes

    i am wondering if my little diesel heater would be enough to maintain heat out in my shop when i am not out there... it has not been run for a while... but if the shop is insulated, maybe it will be enough heat. :unsure:

    Arduino/MQTT Weather Station project

    one of these days i need to finish this and make it work... i think i just have to put it back together, and make it a little more robust. plus, i have to build a waterproof enclosure for the Arduino. then it is just a matter of locating it into the weather, and pointing the wind indicator...

    My 48" X 48" CNC Router Table

    when the machine gets into the new shop, i plan on consolidating the wiring more to the machine, so it will have just one (hopefully) plug. though with the VFD, that isn't exactly possible... but i will still try it. the plan is to mount a piece of plywood on the back of the machine, and mount...

    My Shop Notes

    thinking of still using the old RS alarm system for the shop. it still works good, and seems reliable. if i can insulate my shop well enough, it would be nice to have it minimum heated in the winter, to keep it from freezing electronics. maybe set the thermostat for 35F. but that depends on the...

    What my Autism is to me

    as my fitness gets better, it would be great to have a hiking buddy. though i doubt there are many people ready to go for a quick hike at the drop of a hat... i tend to be a little impulsive... but don't get me wrong, i do plan. sometimes i plan, out the wazoo. and yes, i am a little OCD, too...

    What my Autism is to me

    Hmmm, can't wait for spring... i have hopes to get out walking/hiking on some trails i used to mountain-bike on in my youth. mainly to help burn off some energy. Autistic's sometimes need to stimulate their body/mind to help regulate. my solution is to do raw energy burning, and it also helps...

    What my Autism is to me

    One of my sensitivities is sound. at some frequencies, my hearing is very sensitive. i swear if it was quiet enough, i could likely hear a squirrel fart a block away. :ROFLMAO: so if i am trying to decompress, i have to wear ear plugs, and sometimes even headphones over those to block out the...

    What my Autism is to me

    Why am i unemployed? i used to work for my father as a carpenter. i had a hard time dealing with the noise and hustle of the job, but i did my work, for over 10 years. then, we were sub-contracting for a guy, CJ. that day was a lot of noise with saws, nailers, drills, and yes, even a jack-hammer...

    What my Autism is to me

    when i was growing up, i had a documented writing disability... yet i do all this blogging... how is that? because i never had a TYPING disability. typing is just pushing a button to generate a letter or symbol. writing is moving a hand in a very complex motion to do so. thus, i can easily type...

    What my Autism is to me

    What my Autism is to me

    Hmmm, i think pressure is building again. i don't know how to stop it from building... i don't like this... i have no more relief-valve... all it does is build pressure... simmer, cool a bit, build more... and so on. it never loses pressure unless it pops. how do i keep it cool enough not to...

    What my Autism is to me

    well, my new night med so far is a flop... last night, i didn't sleep at all. not a wink, that i remember. just laying there, whiling away the hours, as i do during the day. i messaged my Psych Doc, and she said to double the night med tonight and see how that goes. something i noticed... due...

    What my Autism is to me

    just got back from my Psych Doc visit, and i think it went real well. maybe the sleep, or lack thereof, is causing it, so we changed to a different sleep med. also, i got a Rx for a "rescue calming drug", so if i am in an unregulated state, where i am about to lose control (at home), i can take...

    What my Autism is to me

    I have been worried about me being misinterpreted, when i have a meltdown again. so i thought i would get a Medic-Alert bracelet. I am getting a QR code one from Medical ID Bracelet | MyID The Ultimate Medical ID System (https://getmyid.com/) with a sleeve on it for Autism, so at a glance, first...

    What my Autism is to me

    Sometimes i write little stories. i guess they are like a little imagination Stim. usually i just write them and delete them as they are rarely worth anything. just my imagination hashing out an idea, or something. but recently, i wrote one that caught my attention... i guess it caught my...

    What my Autism is to me

    i don't exhibit many common signs of Autism, because they were forced out of me at an early age, for being wired or different. i remember an example at Sweat Winter Day Care (run by the local college, UMF, and staffed by students), where i used to love walking around on my toes. but they kept...

    My 5th-Wheel camper

    re-arranging a bit... i want the batteries where i wanted them, the battery charger near them, but the power panel will be overhead the stove/sink area. i will make a bunch of flip up doors, and make the cabinets heavy for wiring. my solar charger will go up there too. as for the HA install, i...

    My 48" X 48" CNC Router Table

    Not much progress lately, as my shop is currently snowed in, and due to medical reasons, i have had severe fatigue and migraines, so little interest in progress. i am however still saving money when i can for the new shop, though not much is saved yet. i hope to get a little bit of a tax return...
