  • Hey Tom I am real worried I have not heard from you since the Taiwan earthquake. Can you please check in and let us know you are OK? I hope you and all your family are OK!
    I don't know if I have told you this or not but man thanks for posting the news for so many years! You have a nose for news and you have posted good stuff! Thank you!!!
    I don't know if you're familiar with the youtube channel of Tek Syndicate, but they tend to report stories in the nature of what you post a lot of the times. So if you wanted to reach a larger audience you should check out their news forum. Anyways keep up the good work, I miss this site, seems to have slowed down quite a bit.

    What happened to TH?

    Oh. I don't know much about him and his life. Sometimes, he pops in and out, but other than that, I'm not sure. If by the end of this year, and he is still not active, we can then assume something has happened. At the moment, I assumed he's just busy with real life.

    Who owns and maintains the site then?

    TH and Ghan, I think.
    Hey Tom, do you live in Taipei all the time or do you move around? If so, it would be really cool if we could get to know each other =)

    My home town is technically in Taipei, I have residency there, but my family lives in Nangang. As you may know, I am currently living abroad in Mass., USA for grad school. Getting to know each other is fine.
    Yes I am from Taiwan. I mainly come to this site (it's been like over seven years?) to see news postings. It all started with asking questions about mapping in WC3 haha!

    I'm probably around 10 years for me. To see a comrade out in the wild is surprising.
    Yay! Got myself an updated avatar! Still liked this version of Mega Man, but I can also choose to switch to a different one anytime.
    Hi Tom_mai!

    I would be honored. I look forward to reading it =)

    Respect, yo.,

    What I mean to say was, would you like to contribute your autobiography, from the days of yourself joining this forum to present day, to The Helper Forums Site History project? Because I can't write something that belongs to you and only you can be able to write your history down in the forums.
    You have a site history section being done about you. Would you like your forum name changed to Tom Mai?
    tom_mai78101
    tom_mai78101
    I prefer to keep my name as it is, as the name itself means a lot to me. However, it is okay to be called Tom Mai, TM, or anything you and others wished to call me. :)
    You destroyed the portal in flatland! :(
    tom_mai78101
    tom_mai78101
    That! I thought no one is using it. :O Is it possible to repair it, since the portal and the original one are different by their height?

    I'm not sure height makes a difference, I think repairing should work fine. Sounds like mylongshanks might fix it, though.

    We use the portal to get back to our current area when we die (so it may have been broken for a while).
    Yesshh... I'm officially now a super moderator. I'm sad that this place isn't getting the activity that it shouldn't be.

    It'd seem that you're the only one keeping the site up so far. It's pretty much dead elsewhere. Keep it up, tom.

    Other staff members did mentioned this. I sure will keep this up. :)
    Minecraft host???
    tom_mai78101
    tom_mai78101
    I'll update my status to reflect on current events. I'm no longer a Minecraft host, as my VM that hosts the server is longer servicing.

    Oh, that is a shame. Would be nice with a TH Server. :/

    By all means, if you happened to find anything wrong, do report. The one thing we are currently lacking is insufficient hardware testing. :D

    And you probably won't regret your decision. Hope you enjoy its awesome width of the display in your palm, and so many oil smears are bound to appear. :p

    I haven't had any issues with oil smears.. but I am slightly worried about the size - on the plus side, I can test to see if your game scales well
    Yo bro', just wanted to extend a thank you from me and probably most of the rest of us that regularly post on the news threads. Without you, TheHelper.net would be a greatly diminished site in my eyes. Your dedication is invaluable, so again... Thanks!
    Would you be interested in a News forum mod position? The advantage is that you post straight to the News forum and don't have to be approved. You have to move posts, even your own to submissions if they have less than 50 views and/or under 3 replies in a day or if it looks like a post after half a day is not going to meet that. Not all submissions get moved to News, only ones you think are interesting and you think will be commented on or popular viewed. What u say?
    Hey, how's it going? I was just wondering what kinds there are to see in Taipei :D

    I might visit Taipei some day and want to know a few things about it.

General chit-chat
Help Users
  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • Varine Varine:
    I tried to extract it but the thing is pretty stuck. Idk what else I can use this for
  • Varine Varine:
    I'll throw it into my scrap stuff box, I'm sure can be used for something
  • Varine Varine:
    I have spare parts for like, everything BUT that block lol. Oh well, I'll print this shit next week I guess. Hopefully it fits
  • Varine Varine:
    I see that, despite your insistence to the contrary, we are becoming a recipe website
  • Varine Varine:
    Which is unique I guess.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Actually I was just playing with having some kind of mention of the food forum and recipes on the main page to test and see if it would engage some of those people to post something. It is just weird to get so much traffic and no engagement
  • The Helper The Helper:
    So what it really is me trying to implement some kind of better site navigation not change the whole theme of the site
  • Varine Varine:
    How can you tell the difference between real traffic and indexing or AI generation bots?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    The bots will show up as users online in the forum software but they do not show up in my stats tracking. I am sure there are bots in the stats but the way alot of the bots treat the site do not show up on the stats
  • Varine Varine:
    I want to build a filtration system for my 3d printer, and that shit is so much more complicated than I thought it would be
  • Varine Varine:
    Apparently ABS emits styrene particulates which can be like .2 micrometers, which idk if the VOC detectors I have can even catch that
  • Varine Varine:
    Anyway I need to get some of those sensors and two air pressure sensors installed before an after the filters, which I need to figure out how to calculate the necessary pressure for and I have yet to find anything that tells me how to actually do that, just the cfm ratings
  • Varine Varine:
    And then I have to set up an arduino board to read those sensors, which I also don't know very much about but I have a whole bunch of crash course things for that
  • Varine Varine:
    These sensors are also a lot more than I thought they would be. Like 5 to 10 each, idk why but I assumed they would be like 2 dollars
  • Varine Varine:
    Another issue I'm learning is that a lot of the air quality sensors don't work at very high ambient temperatures. I'm planning on heating this enclosure to like 60C or so, and that's the upper limit of their functionality
  • Varine Varine:
    Although I don't know if I need to actually actively heat it or just let the plate and hotend bring the ambient temp to whatever it will, but even then I need to figure out an exfiltration for hot air. I think I kind of know what to do but it's still fucking confusing
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Maybe you could find some of that information from AC tech - like how they detect freon and such
  • Varine Varine:
    That's mostly what I've been looking at
  • Varine Varine:
    I don't think I'm dealing with quite the same pressures though, at the very least its a significantly smaller system. For the time being I'm just going to put together a quick scrubby box though and hope it works good enough to not make my house toxic
  • Varine Varine:
    I mean I don't use this enough to pose any significant danger I don't think, but I would still rather not be throwing styrene all over the air
  • The Helper The Helper:
    New dessert added to recipes Southern Pecan Praline Cake https://www.thehelper.net/threads/recipe-southern-pecan-praline-cake.193555/
