Download wrench.nc for Carbide3D Project #1 – Wrench

Completed wrench on the worktable after machining!

I could not find the wrench.nc referenced in the Carbide 3D tutorial. It did not come with the Carbide software download and it was not linked in the tutorial that I was reading. Thankfully, I did finally find the download link! http://carbide3d.com/files/wrench.nc The relevant section of the tutorial: The Nomad 888, as well as most other CNC machines, runs files called gcode. Gcode is a format that goes back decades to the original CNC machines in the 1960’s.  Gcode is basically

Fix GOM Player distorted sound

GOM Player Audio Filter Settings

If your GOM Player has very distorted/scratchy/popping noise during video playback, then here is a setting you will want to check: Preferences -> Audio -> Audio Effects tab -> Voice Filter -> Disable Setting the audio effects voice filter to ‘None’ resolved the sound issue for me.

JPEG compression and JPEG quality in WordPress

While working on part of the Branson’s Nantucket website I needed to find a way to reduce page load times.

SMOOTH two finger scrolling on Windows PC laptops!!!

On Windows, missing the MacBook’s nice two finger scrolling… After returning a MacBook Air 11.6″ to Apple, I was surprised that I only really missed the very nice two finger scrolling. Some of the other Apple multitouch gestures were nice, but it was the really the smooth two finger scrolling on that nice trackpad that was so VERY handy and I missed the convenience!

SkyGrabber Review [updated with screenshots and download]

If you’ve read about the security vulnerability of US military drone planes, like the Predator,  you probably wanted to checkout the Russian  SkyGrabber software to see what all the fuss is about.
