  1. Creating a dual Server

    Thinking about getting a Micro atx board and making this bad boy a portable gaming tablet with Nvidia graphics card and Intel i7 core processor.
  2. Ok so I am in South Carolina and was wanting to watch to some movies during the hurricane inside of my makeshift bunker I converted from a closet and now I am at the stage of having a bug out bag almost created, a bed, video games, board games, food and water enough for 2 weeks, a hand crack makeshift generator I made out of an old saw za, mini light bulbs I created from led's and soldered with some batteries and resistors, and a large 12 v back up battery. Was going to use cars but I am sure parents would not allow this. Right now I am trying to figure out how to convert dc to ac so that the device which is designed for ac and be able to be used. I am making a double relay circuit now to act as the switches and it is going along pretty nicely. Do not have an oscilloscope so its all pretty much guesswork, but hey that's hobo tech for you
  3. Ok so I remember asking this a while back in speculation, however, I never got a response so I am posting it here because the reason why I posted in speculation was that I did not think it was fully physics related. So my question is again, are our models of reality based on probability because we cannot observe the universe at certain scales due the things that we need to observe messing up measurements like light and atom particles. Or is it the other way around? Being that we cannot observe things at such small scales because of the probability and uncertainty of the universe as a whole?
  4. Creating a dual Server

    ok so since the last update I have gone through 2 versions. I am not able to get images up because I cannot find my phone. So for the newest version, I removed the Arduino Uno from the build entirely for the time being until I can incorporate an idea which involves using a microcontroller control network. So far I have been using Dropbox as a server between 2 of these devices however that got full so now I am switching to one drive which I am almost done doing. I have successfully been able to map a drive, that being the raspberry pi, to a laptop using samba. Next, I am going to link that raspberry pi to another raspberry pi, however, I just need to get the other raspberry pi first. So yeah that's my update. See ya.
  5. LaTex

    like the protective kind?
  6. Hey, I am currently having problems with the .grid() function in python. Can someone help? import tkinter as tk from tkinter import ttk LARGE_FONT = ("Verdana", 12) class funapp(tk.Tk): def __init__(self, *args, **kwargs): tk.Tk.__init__(self, *args, **kwargs) ## tk.Tk.iconbitmap(self, default="testicon.ico") container = tk.Frame(self) container.pack(side="top", fill="both", expand = True) container.grid_rowconfigure(0, weight=1) container.grid_columnconfigure(0, weight=1) self.frames = {} # creating a dictionary for F in (StartPage, Page1): frame = F(container, self) self.frames[F] = frame frame.grid(row=0, column=0, sticky = "nsew") self.show_frame(StartPage) def show_frame(self, cont): frame = self.frames[cont] frame.tkraise() def qf(param): print (param) class StartPage(tk.Frame): def __init__(self, parent, controller): tk.Frame.__init__(self, parent) label = tk.Label(self, text="Home", font=LARGE_FONT) label.pack(pady=10, padx=10) button1 = ttk.Button(self, text = "Page 1", command = lambda: controller.show_frame(Page1)) # can change to home page button1.pack() class Page1(tk.Frame): def __init__(self, parent, controller): tk.Frame.__init__(self, parent) label = tk.Label(self, text="Page 1!!!", font=LARGE_FONT) label.pack(pady=10, padx=10) button1 = ttk.Button(self, text = "Back to Home", command = lambda: controller.show_frame(StartPage)) button1.grid(row = 0, column = 0) app = funapp() app.geometry("1280x720") # changes the size and shape of the entire app.mainloop() not sure if I should put this directly into the message or should have uploaded a file. I can change it to a txt file if there is a problem.
  7. Storing Renewable Energy

    Question: Why is it hard to store renewable energy? Can't you just hook it up to a rechargeable battery grid?
  8. Creating a dual Server

    Soo update. I have gone through 3 iterations of the device, trying to improve form because there is only so much I can do to make it run faster besides overclocking it. However, right now I am having an overheating issue so that would break probably melt the battery because it is right underneath the raspberry pi. I am up for suggestions on how I can improve it. From hardware attachments to software add-ons. I still have not done the server connecting thing because I have to have another device to send the files over to. Plus I want to get everything organized first before sending files over from one server to the next.
  9. So quick question, are our models of reality based on probability because we cannot observe the universe at certain scales due the thing that we need to observe messing up measurements like light and atom particles. Or is it the other way around? Being that we cannot observe things at such small scales because of the probability and uncertainty of the universe as a whole?
  10. A View of How the Human Mind Works

    How can you understand the thoughts that you are having to try and understand the mind with thoughts which come from the mind that you are trying to understand? Seems kind of paradoxical to me.
  11. I am not sure that you can generally connect metaphysics with physics. Physics is derived from a mathematical representation and metaphysics is more of a philosophical interpretation.
  12. Easiest way to Mathematically Model

    I am not exactly sure, If the definition I derived from a quick search in dynamic similarities, should have gone more in depth with this, but if the definition that Google gives. That being the comparison between a prototype or model vs. the fully scaled up version then maybe you could say that the size of the system would be a factor as well. So very small systems inside very large systems would need to consider where the position of the system is in respect to its size. So if you have a model car vs an actual car then the model car would experience different scaled down forces vs. the larger car. I can also presume that because the smaller car is smaller it's individual systems within the model car system would be different than the larger car system. I probably also say that I could just take the larger car system and just make it smaller and then just use the same calculations for the larger car system as for the smaller car system. Not exactly sure about the latin squares experiment I would need more time to think about that one. Maybe this box inside box idea could be used to represent energy instead of lightning mequeen. Ok so I have been thinking about it and here is what I came up with. So maybe the systems all have a smaller and smaller grid which represent their probability of actually being in that position. I don't know, not sure.
  13. Easiest way to Mathematically Model

    What if I were to model it in layers, like making the model smaller and smaller, zooming in on each component of the thing that is being modeled and then after this looking at each subsection and finding which variables are similar? Maybe something like this. I guess something like this. So if I were in system 2 and the leaf was in system 1 on the I could determine its relative orientation whereas because both I and the leaf were in system 0 then we would not know our orientation in respect to system 0. Maybe this does not just apply to orientation but instead to any variable or function. So if system 0 is applying gravity to both me and the leaf then we are both going to experience it along with all systems that are inside of our separate systems.
  14. Creating a dual Server

    Ok so my raspberry pi and Arduino just came in yesterday and I decided to combine the 2 together into a single "raspberry pi / Arduino" sandwich with a 128 GB SSD sandwiched directly in between the two. I also got a wireless handheld keyboard but it came in the mail broken so I am returning it tomorrow to get a new one. This will allow me to make Arduino programs and send them directly to the Arduino on the other side in order to do fun stuff like programming and building things on the go.
  15. Is there an easy straightforward way to produce a mathematical model for anything that I can imagine? The more that I think about it the more and more that I see that maybe everything could be written as a function with distinct variables. I just want to know how I can make mathematics seem extremely intuitive so that if I see a leaf fall on the ground I could fully model that falling in all case scenarios with either a simple algebra equation or with a more complex differential and multi-variable calculus equation. I have had the urge for years so if anyone could help that would be great.
