Pinned toot

I'm a father, founder of SchoolInterviews.co.nz, MessageMyWay.com and Mastodon.nz, leader, and enjoy and when I get a moment free. I live in .

Yesterday I presented two scout leaders their wood beads on top of the peak hidden in the clouds.

Rainbow over Arrowtown.

Fail. Actual test done with a mattress between me and the launcher, and safety glasses and ear muffs. The bang when bottles burst is LOUD!

Mk3 launcher tested to 150psi. Looks like the bottle was about to fall.

Nearly in cloud cookoo land. Brow Peak.

Also working on a new 3D printed launcher clamp, and modern art at the same time.

Altimeter calibration tests. Gespalt is packed in foam in the loose nosecone. See igregious.com for more.

Let's see if we can print a water rocket launch clamp with ABS. The usual PLA is less stable around water, hence the new material.

Do you ever sit around thinking about the ironic difference between “founder” the noun and “founder” the verb

This toot is coming from my sparkling new OnePlus 6T. Hope it lasts as long as the old OnePlus 1.

my recommendation if you're still young is to use the shit out of your knees and back while they work

Home for the night, 26 people in 20 bunks though.

Still high on French Ridge.

Evening high on French Ridge.

Tarns on French Ridge.

Morning from the Matukituki.

Tried solidpython, but wasn't any more logical or efficient than openScad. Here's a water rocket launcher clamp I'm working on...

Not a bad wee possie for lunch!

Something cool is hatching here...
