          • @adiwan [> No sane person buys a Hololens for oneself. <]

            HAH ! Knew it ! I know someone who owes me a party favour now...

            Well I guess that solves all of my questions.

          • @drinkingpony Haha. How comes? I only know someone I studied with and was super enthusiastic about the Hololens and bought it for himself for playing around (as in programming with it). I'd say he was a sane guy and quite intelligent so I think that was a purchase with more promise for the future. As for non-programmers it'd be definitely insane.

          • @adiwan Well he is a programmer alright, but also a minecraft nut.

            I just checked and there is actually some dust on his Hololens, cus he has it on display in his bookcase.

            Then again he also has various occulus things and pretty much spends his time with all out of the box thingies.

        • No wonder my stepper motors were super hot. The voltage reference was out of whack. They were about 1.3V instead of 0.84V.

            • @scribus You said it, stereopticon... stereoptics... it certainly is how 3D works. Everything you said is correct.

              But you still do not see in 3D. You see in stereoptics, or whatever fancy name you want to give it.

            • @drinkingpony OK... When you pay extra to see Avatar or TRON Legacy with the fancy glasses in a theater, what is it called?

            • @scribus stereoscopy ? Whatever it is called, there is still a movie being projected onto a screen, the screen is flat. But when you look at that with them "3D glasses" the illusion of 3D was made.

              So at that point it becomes more marketing friendly to say "3D movie" than to say "stereooptic movie that allows for the illusion that things are not just projected onto a screen but seemingly come out of it"

              I mean. Did you think that that one Shrek ride at universal studio would have been nearly as famous if it advertised with "stereoptic movie that feels like things are crawling out of the screen but we are also going to splash some water in your face so people think they are really there" instead of 4D ?

              Marketing terms man, they are the bane of my existance. 4K for instance, or UHD. What is that ? Is it 4096 x 2160 ? or 3996 X 2160 ? or 4096 x 1716 ? Or hell, is it what apple said it was and is it 4096 x 2304 ? Or just WQUXGA wrapped in a marketing term ?

          • I'm soooo glad I made the 3d printer board upgrade with better stepper drivers. It is so silent now that the fans are making the greatest noise. I'm so mad that I didn't do much earlier. To be honest the "ideal" board was recently released that fits into the existing enclosure and I got that. So my anger is very much no deal. I just could have had a significantly better sleep on some prints. A few times the motor noises made it hard to get to sleep and the printer and me were separated by two doors.

                  • @mrmattimation I watched the first 10 minutes of the "great future democratic president puppetshow d'extraordinaire" and pretty much fell asleep, after all it was midnight where I was when the candidates walked on stage.

                    Please tell me that Julian Castro going after Biden was one of the more interesting/memorable takeaways from that thing so I can just go watch a supercut somewhere or something.
