  1. THE VIDEO THREAD!

    Oh well..if I were a midget I would have gone for landscape....shadows wise.
  2. the case looks like this with a touch screen on the other side: https://www.amazon.com/RS-Raspberry-7-Inch-Touch-Screen/dp/B01GQFUWIC/ref=pd_sim_147_2/146-7899857-9854100?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B01GQFUWIC&pd_rd_r=T3XT9F5KB57AVRQSVCWS&pd_rd_w=zJgyw&pd_rd_wg=0RXkX&psc=1&refRID=T3XT9F5KB57AVRQSVCWS

    I was noticing your 'signature ' with battery size and acm. I read elsewhere that the number of km expected on average from a battery pack can be obtained by dividing the Wh rating of the battery by 16 (1600 Wh = 100 km) and Miles would be the conversion from Km.

    yeah...
  9. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1-CKS97PdQvXlVdcZUTYtU7YtWKY&usp=sharing I assembled a Raspberry Pi (version3) plus touch screen awhile a go. I bought a USB GPS on eBay (BU353) and configured it to work. Another python program called 'gpstime.py' was used to set the time from satellite signals. A new 10 amp hour phone charger running at 2.4 amps output runs the assembly well as a portable unit. The BU353 tracked my ride on my Ninebot One E+ continuously with some inherent drift in certain locations. The exported GPX file from 'Foxtrot GPS' was uploaded to a website for conversion to kml which was imported by Google My Maps. http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/map?output_googleearth In downtown Salem near the Peabody Essex Museum (OEM) there was a large group listening to the witchcraft history presented by their paid group leader. As I passed them by, riding on the grass to do so, the speaker made note of the fact that I was on a unicycle as opposed to being a ghostly spirit travelling upright over the grass. I took the long route back to where I live.

    Portrait (as opposed to landscape) mode and YouTube does not end up full screen. It's just the orientation of the camera I used and not your PC. While it looks full screen on the phone which was held in portrait (typical talk position) YouTube isn't flexible that way. In video jargon I think the size, codec and orientation that YouTube video uses is called 'the container'. Since the video container is rectangular (landscape for desktops) the upright phone video only fits into the container by using the middle third or so with nothing on either side. 😠😢😕 Camera is the smartphone that you seem to like. No gimbal , just smooth sidewalk at the beach. Location is in the ride back from Boston heading north. It's the only way back to where I live due to inland marshland crossed by car only roads. Last week a woman' s body washed up on shore!! https://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/2017/10/12/body-female-discovered-revere-beach/okBMCcTREtdjcu6c09oO8L/amp.html

  14. The Photo Thread

    It's been 16 months since I took a bus trip to Washington DC, riding my Ninebot around the National Mall and nearby sights. I didn't realize the not far from the familiar sight of the National Mall reflecting pool (between it and the Lincoln Memorial ) was another perspective of the Washington Monument The guys five years older than I had it tougher than me during the Viet Nam war, medical deferment aside. My draft card came in 1971 during freshman year in college.

    The rail trail that I use often has a section with emerging stones which are semi buried in the gravel. I've hit the bottom of my Ninebot pedals or plastic wheel housing more than once when I missed one of the stones coming my way. Someone recently painted the tops of the stones with orange paint as seen in the video. The paint helps a lot in recognizing them before you accidently hit them. And more high profile rocks! https://youtu.be/AA4IMnPcoqY
