Q & A Is your Ready Bag Ready?

Hello Jason. Well..Ivy seems to think it's a prob with the technology..but you seem to be saying it's "operator error." Not that I'm criticizing exactly...I've had a few of those kind of "errors" myself. LOL!! Or a case of feline computeris interruptus (where the cat who was happily sleeping in your lap 2 seconds ago, wakes up, and runs across your computer keyboard!! LOL!!) which is another reason I don't have pets here, or at my office in New York. Pets are such a big responsibility, and as ACME agent, you either have to leave at a moment's notice, or be gone for a really long time. It doesn't seem fair. So all my beloved pets are at home in Ohio, where my family takes care of them. And considering all the narrow escapes Zack & Ivy have made in potentially dangerous situations, trying to catch Carmen, maybe it's a good idea to "Ivy proof" the communicators after all. Good luck!! ;)

@Julie Justice @Ivy has a tendency to be rather tough on electronics so I have built a prototype that Ivy has been testing to see if it will withstand everything she can throw at it.

Hello Jason. So..if you're designing the "prototype" for Ivy..does that mean it's only for her, or will other agents be allowed to have the "Ivy Communicator" when you're done? !! :)

Hello Jason. I'm sorry, for some reason, I just saw your last message today. That's good news. I look forward to trying it. :)

((In my school bag, I keep a small metal canister with medical supplies (my emergency medication, nausea and anti diarrhea meds/ pepto, earplugs, Band-Aids when I can get my hands on them, and occasionally pain meds), a multitool pen, a bag with necessary toiletries (lip balm, face moisturizer, makeup remover, lipgloss, mascara remover that doubles as a eyelash conditioner, aloe gel, and anti itch gel) , a screw top tub of lotion rather than a squeeze tube (too many incidents), a mini constitution, gum, a notebook, and permanent markers. I really want one of those tactical barrettes with the bottle cap opener and saw edge))

    Is this person also being paid as well as given the car, or is this only for bartering?

    They're also being paid... and they're not yet 20 so... this is going to be a good life lesson.

    Which projects are you running?

    The biggest one is a pseudo-doppler radio direction finder kit. The club asked me to get it up and running.

    It's proving to be a gigantic pain. I committed violent atrocities with a soldering iron this evening, and didn't make much headway.

    Hold on, you actually have to make one? I thought there are pre-built parts you could frankenstein together.

    to be fair, I was pushing my equipment way too far. My skills are with small surface mount stuff, not brazing an antenna to a board.
    Quote Link
  • Eugene Eugene:
    Yeah. This kit was just the electronics. You have to assemble the switch board and antenna array yourself.

    but at least I got the oled screen soldered and running before I got too irritated.

    How long have you been working on this kit?

  • Eugene Eugene:
    On and off since Wednesday.

  • Chase Chase:
    Not too long, only a few days really.

  • Eugene Eugene:
    I have the electronics complete. It's the structural side that's proving difficult.

  • Chase Chase:
    Maybe a few more nights mulling on it would help?

  • Eugene Eugene:
    Perhaps, but I do have an idea of how to proceed, now that I've seen what didn't work.

    The oled and completed hotspot atop a raspberry pi zero. That was a fun little soldering project.
