Worked at Metrix for a few hours on a design for a lens flange; once the bits were laser cut, I was able to hold the lens onto the end of the spacer, turn on the tube, and see the (very dark) room around me. Next, I need to sand the shims and epoxy them together and I’ll have a night vision monocle; after that, make a mount for the camera and it’s there. It was a huge boost to see a focused image on the back of the photomultiplier.
A few weeks ago, I approached Scott Meyer of Basic Instructions with a proposal: I’d like to sponsor comics, and get a text link on each sponsored comic in return. Scott counter-proposed removing all advertising on a per-week basis for a slightly higher fee, so as an experiment I sponsored his comic for two weeks. If you like Basic Instructions, I’d appreciate it if you donated, subscribed, or sponsored it.
