Re: DIY Desktop CNC Machine

Just a quick update from the FabLab thing, thought all y'all might want to know... D.Wolfskehl is the main guy at the FabLab. This is his reply to me asking about memberships. I guess they are not ready. Somewhat disappointing but not unexpected as previously noted. Daniel Wolfskehl January 26, 2011...

Re: Origami Scanner- a folding book scanner

Hi all, I have been doodling and thinking about the folding scanner that was posted by Railman above for awhile now. Although there are several ideas floating around in my head they just do not have the ease of use for a platen that the standard builds that are already on the forum have built into t...

Re: Let's talk about Lighting

Hey, Just a quick post from work. Daniel, you sold me on the arduino/buckpuck <LED> combination for lighting some time ago. Sorry I didnt post this sooner. Buckpuck looks ideal. Been a little busy, been trying to start qualifying for radiology (industrial version)... gotta go. Ceeann <edit> The buzz...

Re: Oh, crap -- this is really bad (net neutrality)

So instead of paying for bandwidth this carrier wants us to pay for certain services. Most probably because they have difficulty maintaining a bandwidth based system. Lots of reasons for difficulty with bandwidth, Rob mentions one of them and another would be using boarderline equiptment... among ma...

Re: Origami Scanner- a folding book scanner

How interesting!!! Another folding scanner!!! This one is cantilevered and looks to be more geared to delicate large documents and not so much for speed. I can see how it might be expanded to make it usable with two cameras... adding the other side light bar and camera mount and such. It would make ...

Re: E-book standard format

I thought I would sum up what has been discussed so far and see if there is some common ground. We Said: 1. I want an image, and underneath, text that can be searched, tagged with the location of the text in the image, and that's what searchable PDF does. 2. As a teacher, PDFs are slightly desirable...

Re: E-book standard format

Thats the idea. An open standard with a straight forward application. I would suggest that the vast bulk of americans are not fluent in Java. I would further state that the huge majority of english speaking people are not fluent in Java. I do like the idea though. It is good thinking. It may be that...

E-book standard format

Does this forum endorse any one standard for electronic books? Personally I imagine it would be like herding cats to get everyone to agree... but it would be a good thing if we could agree on one format. Knowing of course there would be those of us that would prefer to use a different format we coul...
