    Distilling the collective wisdom of FC using AI

    it is fully integrated into VS Code, via github. i can use the sidebar chat and do the inline code chat. i used to do #include under classic ASP, but that has been replaced under ASP.NET - seems to be a share problem but i can't prompt a solution to the problem.

    Distilling the collective wisdom of FC using AI

    just came across this recent O'Reilly article about LLM lessons. still reading but it looks pertinent. https://www.oreilly.com/radar/what-we-learned-from-a-year-of-building-with-llms-part-i/ i am trying to do too many things at once and getting pissed off that i can't get anything done. my...

    Distilling the collective wisdom of FC using AI

    the top AIs now have extensive coding capabilities - or so they say. it certainly helps with understanding visual studio code syntax and structure. it has been about 20 years since i was current with MS programming tools. this helps navigate the docs to teach me what i need to do. but i want...

    Distilling the collective wisdom of FC using AI

    interesting. i have an excel sheet(s) that generate and export GCODE as a text file. do you think the AI (do you use Copilot) could turn this into a web app?

    Distilling the collective wisdom of FC using AI

    i am kind of annoyed with the current "AI". i have been trying to get it to handle some of my use cases, but it seems to be throttled. only seems to support entertainment - videos, music, emails. i can't get it (Copilot) to look at my code base. i can shove one file at a time into the prompt...

    thank-you for your interest. two decades for me.

    Vaporization temperature dependent selection of effects

    nice post. my vape may meet what you describe in 9). my herb vial is a confined space with the draw tube resting on top of the vial. i let the vial + bud heat soak for 90 seconds after reaching vape temp - my current setting is 420°F (215°C) so 2 minutes from start. the center of the herb...

    The Bud Toaster - (currently: Model 14, version 3)

    nothing new to share yet. i plan to take all my work into some maker space. i think i have some useful information to share. couple of days ago i was vaping on the balcony and thought of a new way to fabricate the cube body. i realized that my cnc router makes it possible to revisit the...

    me too. this is the middle of the coil for my heater.

    that is my approach also. the temp in the vial is about 50°F below setpoint until the draw starts, then it is at setpoint within a few seconds. spouse got a mighty recently and it goes +5/-2 as how it maintains the setpoint. not very well tuned, and pretty slow to reach setpoint from startup.

    BaKx (heating principle) inspired desktop vape

    i had trouble tuning the PID also. i found that it was very sensitive to being over controlled with too much swing over/under setpoint. i tried to use an algorithm to calculate the duty cycle for the PWM but the PIC 12F683 has very primitive add/sub with no carry or borrow. so i resorted to a...

    BaKx (heating principle) inspired desktop vape

    ok, my bad - 12v gate should be plenty - i think you're right it must be the current draw. my MOSFET (FDB8832) is rated for 30V, 80A and i think the 16agw cable limits the current below that.

    now you're cooking! my mosfet does not get hot - do you have control of the voltage to the gate? get it above 5v and it should run at lower Rds and lower case temp.

    the nichrome80 ribbon i use is: 1/8 width (approx 3mm) x 0.0113 thick (29AWG) x 12.375" long. 0.3841 ohms/ft. @ Pelican Wire Co.

    Athlete Vaporists?

    i like vaping before resistance training. this helps me focus on form. aerobics is always stone cold sober for me.

    BaKx (heating principle) inspired desktop vape

    i avoid aluminum and titanium oxide. polyimide is as toxic as i want to get. ptfe should be ok. when i started my project there was a website called smallparts.com which sold all kinds of materials in small batches. they got bought by Amazon and that source for DIY projects disappeared.

    BaKx (heating principle) inspired desktop vape

    i had/tried one of those cutters - not worth the $10. i used i high quality scorer (from spouse's stash) and clamped it to a board with a groove for the tube to rotate in, against the scorer. several rotations and then with the BIC.
