CEAL Simulator Pod Change

with one comment

This is a timelapse of Susan and Larry taking StairLab off the simulator platform and placing StreetLab in its place. Right now it takes about a day to complete a pod swap. Most of that time is spent undoing and redoing ~100 bolts by hand. The goal is to get the swap time down to half a day by replacing existing bolts with fewer larger easier to access fasteners.

If you don’t already know what CEAL or these pods are for, see here for an explanation.

Spikes

These spikes are much better than the yak-trax if your considering getting some...

This photo and the one yesterday were entered in a photo contest. My mom finds these cleat things really work to cut chances of slipping on ice.

Thesis in 100 words

leave a comment »

Only 264 pages!

Tonya helped me print off and bind five copies of my thesis yesterday. This is the 100 word cloud my 52075 word thesis generated. Here’s what it’s about if your interested.

Two printers ran out of toner printing these.

Don’t get too excited. There’s still a ways to go. This is in preparation for my departmental exam. After that, we have the final defence … some time in April.

Snow Bridge

Winter photo walks tend to be short because my fingers stop working after a while and it becomes difficult to operate the camera...
