Friends and Family / Guatemala Missions trip
« on: February 28, 2017, 05:37:06 PM »
Two groups I'm a part of are planning a trip to Guatemala this spring. Great Adventure Ministries and Crosspoint Church are preparing a group to leave April 29th.

?

We will be going to work with Bethel Ministries International, an organization dedicated to

advancing a social transformation by sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ and meeting the spiritual,

physical, intellectual, and emotional needs of individuals. We will be involved in

distributing wheelchairs, as well as construction work and forming relationships with the

missionaries and Guatemalans.

                  

We will be serving in the San Marcos/El Tumbador area.

It sounds like the main language we will be encountering is Spanish and maybe a Mayan dialect.

Some of our members know a little Spanish but none of use are fluent. We will have translators to help us with communication.

?

I will not be needing financial support for this trip, but we will be needing prayer support during both preparation and during the trip, for health, safety, for us to be effective in our work, and to grow our relationships with God, Each other, and those we are reaching.

If you do wish to financially support the trip, there will be a spaghetti feed fundraiser at Crosspoint Church(7820 Fort St.) on Friday March 3rd at 6:00pm.

There is also a gofundme page if you can't attend the spaghetti feed.

Gaming 101 / code combat
« on: August 13, 2015, 10:12:24 PM »
https://codecombat.com/

this is a pretty slick game.
you use real code syntax to control your character and get through dungeons.
it progresses pretty slow, but from what I've done it seems more fun than https://www.codecademy.com/


you can select your programming language formatting
lua, javascript, python, etc.

Gaming 101 / halo 3 pc
« on: May 10, 2015, 09:25:03 PM »
http://www.pcgamer.com/halo-online-modders-defy-microsofts-takedown-notice/



you just need the halo online files, eldorito to run halo online outside of russia, and the dewrito updater to get rid of all the microtransaction garbage.
In the end you get halo 3 multiplayer with the benefits of pc, unfortunately you are still stuck with aim assist last I checked.

The install programs may have changed, I installed it about a month ago, if you want current info go to http://www.reddit.com/r/haloonline

The first annual Omaha Mini Maker Faire opens on September 13, 9:00 AM until 5:00 PM at Omaha Children’s Museum 500 S 20th St, Omaha, NE 68102.

I'm curious how big this will be, both being the first year, and being labeled a mini maker faire, but I'll try and be there when the doors open.

All Paintball Related Goodies / 2k4 prostock sniper
« on: May 10, 2014, 06:13:31 PM »
I built this a year or 2 ago.
The cocking knob has marks from pliers. frame has some scratches and there's a small ring around the detent.
I tried to get pictures the best I could.

wgp hinge frame
bob long torp reg
ans quick pull bolt
ans lp valve.

I'm pretty sure I have 90% - 100% of the parts to make it mechanical.
and can throw those in, once I pull them out of my box of parts.

I don't recall any issues last time I tested it.

I'm looking to get $120 for the marker and the pneumatics
$100 for just the marker.

There's no macro fitting on the asa pictured, but I'll pull one off another marker.

Friends and Family / Maker Faire KC 2014
« on: February 09, 2014, 12:20:42 AM »
I just missed this one last year, and want to hit it up this year.
This is the closest maker faire to omaha that I've found.

I don't really know how to describe it, but I'm going to say it's a more technology oriented craft fair.

http://www.makerfairekc.com/

not kc but a good idea of what you'll find
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MLXx7Dr0t2g


it falls on June 28th and 29th.

Tickets
$10.00 Adult Day Pass
$17.50 Adult Weekend Pass

Electronics / RC quad/planes fpv etc.
« on: January 26, 2014, 01:34:27 PM »
I'm just going to stick all the rc stuff in this thread for those interested.

Just watched this series, for a good beginner guide for FPV flying.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1dZfovzdSrM


just some really good video footage I found while sick at home browsing the intertubes.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJtJCzcj57U
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HrSEyS-GpZs
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D4nfWT5-bVA

this video bounces between a quad and a flying wing.
really easy to tell which he's flying by the speed.
The end of this video is what would scare me the most about flying longer distances.
