Battery Comparison Table

01:08:18 Chas: I can help in-person if they end up in Seattle/Bellevue or north but I rarely travel south of Seattle.

01:10:57 Lloyd Moore: If we have a member that works at Microsoft we can also look at the Microsoft Reactor rooms. We are using those for C++ hybrid meetings and working out well.

01:12:58 Gordon Greene’s iPad: Have we approached the King County Public Library?

01:12:58 Colin Leuthold: Reacted to “If we have a member …” with 👍

01:13:11 James Newton: 

01:13:25 Gordon Greene’s iPad: Alas

01:13:29 Colin Leuthold: Also a museum conference room?

01:17:17 Chas: The SnoCo Makerspace meetings are in South Everett very close to Paine Field

01:18:23 Chas: … The robotics club meetings there are in person on the first Saturday of the month at the makerspace

01:38:09 Chas: *batteries not included image was awesome ..

01:39:04 James Newton: Finished teaching the one week “live” (video) version of my robot class for Sally Ride Science / UCSD Extension yesterday. Went well.

01:40:36 James Newton: We managed to publish our Robot Programming IDE as a cloud app, so it’s available to everyone for nothing and no install needed

01:45:09 Doug Bell: 

01:45:59 Doug Bell: It’s called, “The coolest robot I’ve ever built”.

01:47:07 RJK: 

01:48:46 James Newton: Source code at:

01:51:51 RJK: Toorcamp 2024 ToorCamp, the American hacker camp, first “launched” at the Titan-1 Missile Silo in Washington State in 2009. 

01:52:37 RJK: 

01:55:01 RJK: Robots making pizza in Frisco 

01:55:40 Colin Leuthold: Reacted to “Robots making pizza …” with 😁

01:56:17 Colin Leuthold: But James, I cry if it’s my own robot and falling down.

01:56:48 Chas: With talk like that you’ll be in trouble during the robot uprising… 😉

01:58:46 Colin Leuthold: yes

01:59:39 Colin Leuthold: Same could be said of Short Circuit.

02:01:20 Gary Petersen: Robot getting mad (discussed earlier) 

02:20:50 Colin Leuthold: C for Coulomb?

02:21:09 Chas: 

02:28:59 Colin Leuthold: Replying to “C for Coulomb?”

I think you got it right originally with C being Charge Rate.

02:39:59 Colin Leuthold: It’s about getting it into the right Hazardous Waste Stream.

02:43:25 Scott: My local hardware store accepts end-of-life NiMH for disposal.

02:45:41 Colin Leuthold: Reacted to “My local hardware st…” with 👍

02:46:18 RJK: 

02:50:34 Steven Kaehler: The term AGM battery is short for Absorbed Glass Mat.

02:54:47 Colin Leuthold: Instead of charging a fee at the disposal area, would it be better if they put a deposit on batteries like aluminum cans?

02:56:27 James Newton: Reacted to “Instead of chargin…” with 👍

03:02:45 RJK: Making the most of your Microcontroller 

03:04:40 Steven Kaehler:

03:14:37 James Newton: A little bit on using metric lengths:

03:17:29 Lloyd Moore: Thanks Chaz!

03:17:37 Chas: Reacted to “Thanks Chaz!” with 👍

03:17:37 Lloyd Moore: Chas!
