Make some short distance roller skates. Handy for traveling 16 inches quickly.
But - think outside the box. If I installed them in series
rather than in parallel
, I could get quite a long commute going. Sort of like the unicycle of roller skates, if you want a mixed metaphor.
i know what i would do with them light mounts lol. extend them and mount the light on the end so when i needed to do something in the tank i could just "push it back" out of the way but still have some light over the tank. im sure dk has alot more ideas for them though lol.
Something along this flavor is definitely on DK's list. She originally was a gonna do-it with a rail system but the drawer slides are so much more slick, although take up more real estate. The question is: can we find unimpeded real estate? And, can we find where we put that case of drawer slides...
IN OTHER NEWS:
Last night, DK spent half an hour sorta arguing with the hardware guy in Lowes. She marched in there with junior feral wolf at her side, looking for a particular part, see below. Mr. Hardware swore they didn't sell it, but DK had bought it there before and KNEW it haddabee there. We got the Windows guy involved, and he looked up the part on the Computer (capitalized because it's all knowing, doncha know) and the Computer said, "There be 13 in stock," afterwhich the Mr. Hardware got hisself one of those stair climbing rigs and looked up in outer space in the racks and lo and behold, the Computer was RIGHT!
DK bought herself a few, as they are handy for fixing the syrup problem. Mebbe she will post on that later. Last night she made a teeny tiny tweak to her system, which involved increasing the concentration of sodium bicarbonate in her vat, and then she ran some tests and got some veeeeeeeeeery funny results. That is, assuming the TDS meter was working the way she thought it should work...
The thing about the whacky Shrimporium is: it keeps her squirrely brain worked out. She constantly has to ask herself, "Is it doing what I THINK it should be doing, or doing something ELSE?"
Because, if it's doing something ELSE, then how to fix the problem will never become apparent, until DK gets her head straight about how the thing is ACTUALLY working.
And she has found that a lot of times sales literature LIES. Yes, LIES.
