Brexit

UK is going to vote in or out on June 23rd.
This is just hilarious:)
Trump President and now this.
Brexit guys have the best arguments ever…
The power and influence of Germany within the EU is to big.
So, we better leave it, and will now face the EU, ruled by Germany, without any saying or vote.
Gee, this will help our chances entering that single market!

Or one true gem:
The EU is ruled by a non elected commission.
:)
Sorry, I forgot your yearly elect the queen day!
Or the famous parties after your House of Lords elections
😉

I for one would love to see the UK leave.
This would be an awesome gameplay in EU4.
How to revive the struggling island after its dark age, following the Brexit
:))

Just like the Trump presidency, I am all in for social experiments.
As long as I am not involved;)

Glutenfrei

Nowadays everything has to be gluten free

Looks nice.
So what is inside?

Bloody finger paint!
How can that be gluten free?
Oh yeah..gasoline is gluten free, too.
Better drink it.
And what are non natural products.
This product is clearly for hippies. .and not for my carnivorous daughter :)))

Raspberry Pi 3

I got a Pi 3 for my birthday.
Installed OSMC and just started our new Media Center.
It works so fine and smooth.
Casing is with fan included.

picasing

But with the Pis GPIO, there is only 3.3V OUT and no 150 mA.
What to do, to let this fan run?
(And not constant on, yes, I could connect it to 5V adn GND, but I want the Pi running 24/7 and not the fan)
Well, I just transitored it:

schaltplan
(Pic I found on the net)

And here starts my trouble.
As you can see, there is a 6k Ohm resistor used.
Doesn’t work for me, my transistor is a N2222.
With the power of the internet, I calculated following values:
1,7k Ohm
0.5M Ohm
and 47 Ohm
Yes, 3 different values.
Started with 1k Ohm.
Not running.
220 Ohm, there you go.
So I settled with 470 Ohm, just because.
If anyone can explain, how to calculate it properly, I would be so glad!

Some soldering, and hacking it into the casing later, it is running!
And here is my dirty script:

#!/usr/bin/env python
import RPi.GPIO as GPIO 
import time
GPIO.setmode(GPIO.BCM) 
GPIO.setup(14, GPIO.OUT,initial=GPIO.LOW) 
def getTemp():
        f = open("/sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0/temp", "r")
        temperature = f.read()
        cleantemp = temperature.rstrip()
        return int(cleantemp)

fanset = False
hightemp = 70000
lowtemp = 60000
try:
 while(True):
  curtemp = getTemp()
  if(curtemp>hightemp and not fanset):
    fanset = True
    GPIO.output(14,fanset)
  elif(curtemp < lowtemp and fanset):
    fanset = False
    GPIO.output(14,fanset)
  time.sleep(30)

finally:
 GPIO.cleanup()

and the real miracle..it works!
starting at hightemp = 70000 (70°C) and stopping, if below lowtemp = 60000 (60°C)

Vatertag

Been on the road with beer and my daughter.
It was quite the hike uphill to the Fernsehturm here in Stuttgart :))

Ein Sommernachtstraum Overtüre

I just discovered Mendelssohn Bartholdy.
How could that have slipped my ears so far?
Just listen to that piece.
It is so perfect..

Ingenieurporn

Wer schon immer mal wissen wollte, was der Wendelstein-x7 ist, weshalb er so fantastisch ist und was es sowieso und überhaupt damit auf sich hat..
Der sollte mal in die neuste Ausgabe Alternativlos, Folge36, reinhören!
:)
