DK wasn't offended.

She probably should never have led us down that path.

But she just got so carried away, with the adrenaline surge, and the assonance. She is a word nerd.

DK is frantic...FRANTIC!

She is running around, desperately looking for a hard hat... a bicycle or motorcycle helmet... heck... a steel box.

Because, the new Macromatic install has resulted in a fine-ness of granularity,...

The missing link

Here's the deal. DK knows almost nothing. But she does know how to type (slowly), and read, and think.

With only three tools, she and her friend Google have schemed her way into these nutso...

Nine hurdles down, one remains

DK got the Macromatic installed. To do so, she had to do another relay-ectomy elsewhere and fool with the circuit layout, but she prevailed.

She did NOT install the RIB relay.

Why?

She...

It has happened: polychrome project cross-pollinates water factory

After a few days of quiescence - DK's been focused on something else in the background - DK looked around for the stuff she needs to beta test the new system.

The idea of this new system is to fix...

The Twelve Days of... WAITING

OK, so TWELVE DAYS later, the Macromatic has finally arrived.

DK's been moving the water quite a bit in the Sulawesi bank, so yesterday there was a fresh large molt! Those Mermaids seem to...

DK's STILL twitchy, but getting closer to the next project

The RIB dry-contact, "no"-voltage relay has arrived, after a scenic tour of the country. The Macromatic relay is still out on Spring Break, apparently.

In the meantime, DK's been digging through...

DK's twitchy

It's hard to believe the ENDLESS polychrome project is... over. The parts and pieces were sprawled on various surfaces for months, ever reminding DK of a project not completed.

DK's livin' in 1924, today

Check out below, C!



Well, in theory, yeah. But I don't HAVE two of the old ones (to dedicate to this purpose), and the NEW ones don't work! It also goes backwards from the KISS principle.

Oh, WOW, the polychrome is doing fahbulous dahling

DK put the glaze coat on this morning.

It's rather fun, doing polychromes. Because everything you do, you sorta hafta slop it on, for it to look best. Too perfect, and it's ruined. That's why...

Sometimes, DK gets fed up and FIXES things

So, to do all her whacky projects, DK uses a lotta equipment, parts, and pieces.

She has this kickin' aluminum ladder (thanks, Costco) that is super handy and lightweight.

But alas, the...

Lateral thinking - makes the unsolvable solvable. Possibly.

Celebrated with a junk-food shamrock shake! Not sure there was anything authentic in it; mostly synthetic - green dye, synthetic sugars, synthetic whipped cream, synthetic milk product. ...

DK's side beta test project

So...

While the gaping hole in her kitchen ceiling makes mockery of her, as she awaits more dripping to source her water problem, DK has not been quiescent.

She decided to do a beta test of her...

And here is the mounting scheme DK's parts came up with.


First, a view of the real estate on the mounting board, and how the injector fits into the space. (Uh, yeah... that would be... JUST...

Bonehead engineers - phth!

DK decided to quit procrastinating, and get the new injector mounted.

Now, the first step to any project is to elucidate your criteria.

Oh. Wait. No, no. DK lies, always.

DK WILL get it re-balanced and back healthy. She's had this happen before and she's convinced it's a function of silt. Probably pockets of silt that are underfiltered so become anaerobic pockets. ...

DK's seeing RED. Literal. Figurative. Chemical.

What we say is that it's "distantly ON topic," as DK believes everything will EVENTUTALLY be related to "shrimp" if she waits long enough for it to manifest the related-ness. Yeah, that's it.

Well, apparently, DK's going steady with Murphy

DK's got problems every which way, right now.

Beginning with the need to cut a chunk of drywall out of her kitchen ceiling the other day, to DRAIN THE WATER. Ugh.

Which brings up the philosophical question...

Today's philosophy - ponder this:

DK has a major MAJOR eureka moment

So, for any of you in the cave who aren't brain dead (presumably - hopefully - a high percentage), this thread is more about philosophy than shrimp, actually.

Today, we hit on that, first.

Hey, it's a Siberian front; DK has nothing to do but shrimp watch!
