Computer lab tool kit phase 3 IMG_2136 (1)

Shopping List:
Grounding mat w/ cable and alligator clip
Ethernet to USB adapter, drivers
Bootable USB stick/(thumb)drive w/ utility sw
Additional USB drives/sticks w/ BIOS updates, etc.
Large paper-clip ready to reset, force DVD/CD disc ejects, etc.
Thermal conduction putty/grease/stuff
Grounding strap w/ cable and alligator clip
Shirt-pocket digital multi-meter
Magnifying glass

Overly complicated screwdriver bit handle w/ #2 Philips bit
Additional driver bits, Torx, Philips, blade styles
Small sockets w/ bit-to-1/4" adapater
long-reach diagonal cutters

Phase 1 and phase 2 kits are on the lower left.
Starting at the upper left:

Grounding mat with wrist strap. Doesn’t actually have a connector TO ground, you’ll note, but does keep you and the workpiece at the same potential, so better than nothing. Now you appreciate the little chain that drags on the ground under the carts and chairs in some labs.

Some people and their environment and wardrobe choices generate more electrostatic potential than others. I know a guy who used to lead with his car keys to the latch seat on the door jamb, whenever he went through a doorway at the office. One key would arc to the bare-metal plate the door latches on. He drew arcs that made audible "pop!" sounds if he didn’t offer a low-impedance path, and the arcs hurt. Could have had something to do with polyester suits. I prefer cotton.

The mat can’t hurt, might help. If the workpiece’s grounded cord is plugged in, use an alligator clip haywire to connect chassis ground to the mat. Or touch the chassis ground with one hand while working. Or connect the mat to ground at a grounded outlet- the North American 3 wire receptacle ground connection take a standard "Banana" jack. (A forthright Canadian friend uses the word "jill" in place of "receptacle"… the counterpart to a "jack". Suit yourself)

Ethernet (RJ-45) to USB adapter. More than two connectors and a wire, there’s Ethernet transmitter / receiver hardware in the body of it, and USB receiver / transmitter hardware too. Just like you’d expect, these have their own MAC and you may have to make that known (depending on how your network runs). Sadly, I haven’t yet seen a PXE boot setup that accepts the external adapter’s MAC. But I have over-written the adapter’s default to have the adapter take the place of a failing-but-not-completely-broken built-in NIC…
Note ROM disk with drivers.

Partially-unbent paper-clip, size large. For resetting things with recessed reset buttons, forcing CD/DVD drives to eject, etc. Its on a badge-clip and attaches to the lanyard with the bootable USB stick. Save the last one you made and you don’t have to find another paper clip when time is of the essence…

Small tube of thermal putty. Better quality heat-sink-and-fan assemblies come with a dab already in place, and it will squish and flow when heated. If you’re reusing a heat-sink when upgrading the processor on something, you’ll need your own supply. It does dry out, so put the cap on after cleaning the surfaces. Don’t buy the big, economy, size, unless you really use it frequently. I don’t like to let an open tube go more than 6 months.

Non-conductive ruler. Wood or plastic. A metal edge on a wooden ruler is OK, but an all metal ruler is unnecessary trouble.

Grounding strap – wrist band to aligator clip, use with mat or separately, see discussion at top.

Pocket-size volt-ohm-(amp)-meter, aka VOM. Cheap. Something to read what you expect to be +/- 5V, 120 VAC, 240 or 208 VAC, +/- 12, 3V lithium cells for CMOS memory, etc. Built-in leads don’t fall out or break off. Some alligator and/or "ball clip" jumper wires will help if you need to secure one or both ends. Ammeter functions in these are usually too few mA to bother with, but if you use it, get some replacement fuses, its a "when", not "if", situation.

"Magic" tape dispenser. For mending or sealing paper and cardboard. The "magic" 3M tape can be written on with ballpoint pen, vastly superior to shiny tape.

Large multi-bit screwdriver, with Phillips, regular, Torx and socket ends. For unusual jobs, where it is worth having the right tool for the fastener. You can’t buy an assortment of ‘bits’ without getting all the regular blade and Phillips sizes in any event. I prefer a dedicated handle and a bit that doesn’t come off, but I don’t have 1.3 meters of wall space to hang them all on.

Phase 4 exists, it includes a small, sharp, knife, coffee cup and coaster, cup or can for pens, pencils, plastic flatware, skinny tools; duct-tape, vinyl tape for color-coding, extension cords, a Brother or similar label maker, zip-lock polyethylene bags, nickel-plated anti-static bags, boxes and bins for organizing stuff, extra monitors, keyboards and mice. Broom, dust-pan, small-but-powerful vacuum cleaner (Mighty-mite from a garage sale, or similar). Speakers for your radio / computer / phone audio when acceptable. I don’t favor headphones in the lab, may people do. A water bottle or large plastic cup.

There are also consumables: tie wraps, facial tissues for blowing your nose and cleaning up surfaces, paper towels / napkins, light cardboard tags to attach to stuff that has a story. Blank CD/DVD media. A notebook.

Bean Seeds: A Basic Part Of The Urban Homesteaders Tool Kit

Bean Seeds: A Basic Part Of The Urban Homesteaders Tool Kit
In recent years, an increasing number of people have become involved in “urban homesteading” – creating little islands of agricultural self-sufficiency within cities. Vegetable gardens are becoming a more familiar sight in some major cities, and it’s not all that unusual to see chicken farms spring up among urban sophisticates.

Some of this is an outgrowth of the “locovore” movement, which emphasizes the health benefits and epicurean pleasures of eating locally grown food. Some of it is driven by necessity, as households struggle with increasingly alarming grocery bills. Whether dictated by fad or necessity, urban homesteading is a trend that is likely to grow – and for those interested in starting a homestead, bean seeds are a good place to begin.
In terms of nutritional density – protein and fiber content in particular – beans are hard to beat. Cultivated for millennia in the Western Hemisphere, and even used by some Indian cultures as currency, beans are a low-fuss, high-yield food source. They are inexpensive, easy to grow, simple to store, and hard to mess up even by the least talented cook. All varieties of bean seeds – from pintos to navy beans, from green beans to the much-underappreciate lima, and even peanuts (yes, they’re beans!) can be prepared in delicious, colorful meals. Planting bean seeds next to other garden staples such as squash and corn will get an urban homestead off on a good start.

For both quality and self-sufficiency, non-hybrid, non-GMO organic bean seeds are the best choice. They come from a time before the widespread use of pesticides and herbicides, and they aren’t the product of genetic tinkering in a laboratory. Think of heirloom bean seeds as a natural work of horticultural art akin to the cherished valuables that are transmitted from one generation to another.

Preserved in their purity without genetic modification, those natural bean seeds can be collected and used again. Most of heirloom bean seeds are at least 50 years old; indeed, some varieties have remained unchanged since the time of George Washington. Anybody interested in starting an urban homestead would be wise to acquire a large supply of heirloom bean seeds.
