I have major toothache and in pain, so I just smoked a fair amount of bud, and the pain's still there but my mind is racing full of ideas and thoughts and inspirations right now, so i thought i'd just keep this page open and as i think of them write them down lol

Thought 1. Using an Arduino (with an Ethernet Shield) Turn 1 into a 4 play Card Game Server, hearts for example.
Thought 2. Side tracked, the postman brought me an ebay package, 50 3mm LED's i was excited, i've never had "purple" LED's before I just got 50 PINK so i thought wow 50 purple!, they arrived, opened, tested...
smiley-sad - i tried them out, they're not purple! lol, they're UV 50 3mm UV LED's either something fluro green/yellow rave type of thing or a white dress to make an interesting display at night. - but bugger lol, pink LED's are very cool. .



Thought 3.  I'm still in pain can't eat not fun... ooooooooooooo - how about this, a LOW bandwidth network consisting of Arduinos and a small antenna, all interconnecting with something over radio channel, all internet connecting which gives a feed to your local LAN, as the network builds up, people could use it to pass each other small data messages for free and relay them across mass distances for free, maybe one day a high speed version would replace this network, but i'd use it to play games with the natives down the street lol, gossip, bringing the communites together, you don't need a wireless network either, the wireless part is done with the arduino and links to other arduinos it finds locally (using a booster/amp) as the network grows who'll want in?...

Thought 4.  After smoking more pot, i've come to the conclusion the only way i'm going to get out of being in pain is to stop eating for good for a few days smiley-sad -  so then i don't condone smoking this but if you're in pain it helps side track you and relieve you of the pain but not totally, it takes a sharp pain and makes it a dullish pain like a fat person sitting on your back even though she's fat her body spreads out proportionally smiley So what is my next thought.... hmmm if they managed to develop a super conductor which also is a semi conductor at room temperature...

What could we do?



Thought 5.  OF ALL my old edison style bulbs / incan's the one that's never failed me are those bulbs you find in the fridge (not the new LED one's) all the rest of the explode be in the car, or old bulbs not yet replaced. so do bulbs last longer if placed in a fridge of regular bulbs outside of the fridge?!

Be careful with the UV led, I went partially blind for a couple of hours after experimenting with them one morning...

As is typical... Smoke the mary jane and think it makes you a genius, and really it just makes the stupid more pronounced. Just like beer.

Tylenol, asprin, Those might actually help with the pain witout bringing out near as much stupidity.

I have noticed that my pot smoking group of friends have more PHDs among them than my beer drinking group of friends.

Well, it is called "dope" for a reason. You are what you smoke, after all.

A super conductor that has resistance, surely an oxymoron - not the only moron then.

Well no, 30watt CPU dissipates how much heat?

So a 30watt cpu that is also a superconductor with no energy loss... a 30watt CPU becomes a 0watt cpu. right? no losses to heat at all.

We all hope your toothache is better now....

" I'd never look directly into them they're UV lol "

I was avoiding looking directly into  LEDs, but still got enough sc attered UV  to temporarily blind me.

Incidentally, I was experimenting with lighting a flourescent red target on a moving banner.
It worked well but as the machines were in public places I ditched the UV lights, and switched
to normal blue LEDs, which also have more than enough UV to make the red target flouresce
brightly -  so beware the blue ones too.
