DC206 Mailing List is Temporarily Down

Posted in Uncategorized at 08:15 by admin

For those that have been wondering what happened to the DC206 mailing list for the last week, here’s an update.

  • On Monday 5/30 the box that hosts the mailing list went down unexpectedly. We initially believed that there was too much draw on the UPS and that was causing boxes to brown out.
  • By Thursday 6/2 we concluded that the power supply in the server had failed. You could smell that the magic smoke had been let out of the PSU. We replaced the PSU in the server and it *seemed* to fix the problem till the unexpected shutdowns happened again. From what we can tell the PSU died and like some sort of copper and aluminum asshole, damaged he motherboard on the way out.

So, when will things be back up and operational? Unfortunately we are looking at another week to get the box fixed. The timing on this couldn’t be worse. Between a rush project at work and Toorcamp, I have had minimal cycles to work on this. Once I return from Toorcamp I will get a new mobo in the box and get us back up and running.

I apologize for any inconvenience this is causing.

Date: 11/19/11 @ 4pm-5:30pm (NOTE THE CHANGE IN DATE & TIME)

Topic: DARPA’s Cyber Fast Track program

DARPA’s Mudge will be at the lodge speaking about their Cyber Fast Track (CFT) program, it’s intended to cut red tape to apply for funding for cyber security projects.

CFT is designed to fund research to be performed by boutique computer security companies, individuals, and hacker/maker-spaces, and allow them to keep the commercial Intellectual Property for what they create. The goal is not to have these entities focus on solving DoD problems, but rather to fund research efforts these organizations would considered on their own but are not pursuing due to complexity/cost/ time/etc. Where it is an effort that may help the community at large it is almost by definition within the running lanes of CFT to consider. What’s good for the community is good for DARPA. Please note, CFT does not purchase existing technology, nor does it fund efforts to perform engineering modifications to existing (or known) technologies. This is a research effort.

Peiter (Mudge) Zatko, the program manager of CFT, will present an overview of the program and take your questions in a town hall session being held at Founder’s Co-op on November 18, 2011 at 7 pm. The event is open to all.

Date: 09/18/11 @ 1pm until whenever

Topic: Soldering 101 with Geordy

Geordy will have a short slide deck with some basics and SOME tools but most folks will need to bring the following if they have it available:

* Soldering iron or preferably a soldering station like the Hakko 936 http://amzn.to/jWNMdT or the Aoyue clone http://amzn.to/l6tt0V but if you aren’t 100% committed yet, we’ll have some of these around to use.
* sponge or other tip cleaner (if your soldering station/iron doesn’t have one)
* flux pen http://amzn.to/mhP0lm
* superwick desoldering braid http://amzn.to/mjjijd
* Some kit to work on http://www.vellemanusa.com/us/enu/product/list/?id=523008 (please keep it reasonable if this is your first kit. $10-$20 price range or Level 1)
* Good quality rosin core solder such as Kester 44 or something from MG Chemicals. (DO NOT BUY LEAD FREE, it sucks!) http://amzn.to/kTnBAJ
* small wire clipper/cutters such as these http://amzn.to/mf9LqD

Most all of this stuff is available locally at Vetco in Bellevue on Northrup Way or at Frys. I would NOT suggest buying a soldering station at Vetco. Frys might have decent prices on the Hakko if they still carry it. I have a limited amount of tools and supplies I can share with the class but please don’t count on it.

I’m going to cover all things related to through-hole soldering in this class including desoldering and safety issues. Bringing a kit to solder is totally optional but it’s a great way to learn since you’ll have me right there to help you navigate any problems that you may run into. I’ll start the class at 1pm and we’ll go as long as we need to. We won’t be covering surface mount techniques this time but if this class goes well, I’m open to holding another one where we build up a kit with surface mount parts. Please speak up if you are interested in this class so I can prepare accordingly.
