TVShow 3X19 Flashing Light Prize (6) Arduino 101 Break Up (FAIL)


Parting is such sweet elation.
Elevation change per 0.15 meters (0.5 foot) measured by BMP180 triggers relay state.
Good riddance, Arduino 101. May your gibberish never stain my IDE again.

Ingredients
1. Arduino 101 (34 gr)
2. BMP180 Module (4 gr)
3. TIP120 (1 gr)
4. 2.2K Resistor (<1 gr)
5. 5V Incandescent Bulb (<1 gr)
6. 9V Battery (42 gr)
7. Battery Holder (1 gr)
8. Latex Balloons (Helium)
9. String

Notation(s)
1. Project worked to perfection--right up until the balloons were purchased. After having not acquired enough balloons (12) for lift, a stripping down of materials and conversion to a lighter 12 volt battery resulted in an accidental overload and in brief - kaput! Secondary to this, let it be known that filming string hung peripherals and balloon flight at night with low budget production is as impractical as this whole venture.

2. 1 liter of Helium lifts 1 gram. 12" latex balloon volume is 15L. Horse shit!

TVShow 3X17 LeBogue for Men by Repel


Get your special Repel gift bag with any purchase of LeBouge for Men.
Available at CVS, Riteaid and Golden Corral.

Notation(s)
1. A cordial cease fire on TVShow end tag.

Stress shd be more stressful.
Button(s) to NodeMCU ESP8266 to Al Gore to .php to .txt to
Processing to Arduino to Relay to Alligator Clips to the Future...


Ingredients
1. NodeMCU ESP-12E
2. Arduino Uno
3. HC-06 Bluetooth Module
4. (2) Momentary Buttons
5. 5V Relay
6. NPN Transistor
7. 1K Resistor
8. Alligator Clips

Notation(s)
1. Originally intended on bluetooth communication between Processing and Arduino Uno with HC-06 module -- how and ever, Processing consistently stalled despite a perceived stable port of call and there is suspicion this was as result of an incompatible native bluetooth.

2. 'status' and 'state' are not like the other. Check your values! Sigh. Thx, Jason Harper.

3. TVShow is shot before no live studio audience...or crew. Often times focus is considered a victory -- here, there is one scene in defeat. We are not DC, we reshoot nothing!

4. A few necessary corrections to the dialog followed by an abundance of totally unnecessary changes in order to preserve the perception that there was no careless thievery. Even the impression could hardly be considered professional -- sigh.

A/C Vent Hack for Cities That Shd Fall
Providing that this site caters to the hacking of items so as to improve upon -- and being that I currently temporarily reside in a place clustered with archaic dwellings, I thought it generous in passing to relate a means to resolve for an engineering issue many likely suffer from when living in elder metropolises.

Numerous residents are required to dangle a/c units from their windows this time of year and often times the misalignment of windows, bcz the buildings were designed and constructed by cretins, results in inefficient distribution of air.


Here, as follows, is a method to improve upon the efficiency of your air conditioning by employing nothing more than scrap cardboard, a ruler, pencil and tape.

Realize that shd some one come across this, recognize the opportunity and subsequently are able to increase the efficiency of their a/c unit, resource use may be ever so slightly reduced and the planet, saved...ish.
