        No reported expenses this month. Some distractions, but let's have Stan tell it :

        Dear MP,

        In the month of January `15: a ~2 week dead zone where nothing directly worthwhile was accomplished under the S.NSA banner (on account of yours truly being otherwise occupied in the salt mines. [1]) What of the remainder?

        A) Took the liberty of procuring a set of Haydon-Kerk RGS06 linear actuators (45cm) to take the place of the existing 20cm units (the latter will do their duty in the paste layer, to be constructed at a later date.) Where? From scrap dealer, naturally. And the price was right (negligible.) Presently crafting an enlarged pedestal to accommodate these.

        B) Discovered that a digital vacuum gauge is necessary, so that motion on the Z-axis during a downwards stroke (picking up part) can be terminated immediately upon the part adhering to the rubber snout. (Otherwise? Snout deforms, part shifts position.) Possible one of those 'A year in the lab can save you fifteen minutes in the library' situations.

        C) Yet another small detour: yours truly spent several days assisting TheRealBitcoinFoundation in an effort to product a pocket-sized, low-cost node. [3] Ended up studying the classical Bitcoin 0.5.3 source tree in some depth. In particular, produced a fully deterministic build mechanism for Bitcoin [4], and discovered a brutal but moderately effectively cure for the infamous memory exhaustion bug. [5] Also created a 'Buildroot'-based mechanism for cranking out a reasonably sane, entirely Poettering-free Linux distro for the 'Pogoplug' and other small embedded systems. [6]


        [1] Day job contracting gig, which generally prefers not to be named. Mostly harmless except in that it demands intense concentration in bursts, and frequently (horror!) leaving the house.

        [3] See relevant #bitcoin-assets threads,



        [6] Not yet published. Weighs, at present, ~6MB (not incl. kernel, bitcoind, or mechanism for 'defloration' of connected virginal 'Pogoplug.') What does section (C) have to do with S.NSA? At present, very little. But it is my intention to eventually produce hardware capable of running a Bitcoin node - under the S.NSA banner. This requires some preliminary work. [6b] For which, one may hope, these efforts have provided the necessary impetus. Because I cannot afford the time to birth the entire thing personally. As it is, I may be stuck assembling a Cardano for Conference III with tweezers, something which I would greatly prefer to avoid.

        I do not consider the pogoplug detour in any sense a delay - the idea with NSA was exactly this sort of branching. That NSA is not intended as a one product start-up but a replacement for one of the fiat world's structures of power is pretty much why it's still here.
