Under the Influence

I am never quite so unpleasant to be around as when I'm writing a lot of code, and it's just not quite working. The more complicated to debug it is, the worse I am. I get all short tempered and snappish, though I do my best not to take it out on people around me. For my general unpleasantness this last bit, I apologize to my roomies.

When the program suddenly runs correctly, though, and the laser glides across the sky to point -- more or less accurately -- at the star it's supposed to... Those moments are some of the best moments of exultation.

I'm glad to hear your project is working out. I'm curious, though, if you might have more information on it in a web-page or some-such? I've been catching bits and pieces of your project, but I don't have a coherent idea of what it is, yet.

Your temperment when debugging mirrors mine a bit. I had a bit of a personality clash at work due to a recent such bout of fustration. It's consoling, in a way, to hear that I'm not the only one that has similar bouts of bad temper.

Most of the general discussion about it has been carried out in tugrik's journal, actually.

    Clever! ^_^

    Was each link made from two pieces, or was there fill material inside that you removed? I'm having trouble seeing how to print these in a makerbot-compatible way (though I could just be overlooking…

    Nah. It'd just take a dissolvable support material and higher resolution. There are commercial 3d printers out there that can print ball bearing assemblies in one pass, fully assembled.

    Nice! ^_^ I was going to be flabbergasted if you were actually able to print it as a unit, but I guess that would take antigravity.

    I printed each piece individually and assembled them after some cleanup. I did print four segments at a time, though, unattached, in a 2x2 grid.
