    Braid Your Hair Without Looking

    超大揭示板-It's about knowing where your hairs are longer/shorter. If you have layers, make sure you don't have one section that's predominantly from the top of the head, or it will be shorter. It's ok to switch some hair to a different section before you run out, too.

That can be frustrating... you can try to straighten out your row right before joining, but you've obviously been trying that.

After your project is done you can bring it through a process called "blocking" where you basically set the fibers the same way you would your own hair: by wetting it and letting it dry in a particular position, or ironing it (or both).

                                            亚洲 欧美 中文 日韩-deauthing with ESP8266 has significant limitations (range, doesn't work on 5Ghz equipment, is a crime). No, IOT in general is not super secure.

                                            5566fxyy-Yep, you got it, it's state-change detection. For an LED what you propose is acceptable, but for internet messages, you want to be conservative about how much extraneous data you are sending. You don't don't want to constantly be sending the same message, just one message when the state changes. Thanks for the excellent question.

For sanding, you can use a slotted mandrel to hold twisted bits of sandpaper, but they don't perform as evenly as doing it by hand.

Can you think of any benefit or downsides to using either one? What if you change the value of fadeAmount at the start of the program, does one suddenly become more advantageous? This is what thinking like a programmer is all about.

So if it's -5, -fadeAmount would be 5. Hope that helps clarify how the minus sign works in this context: it means "the opposite of".

I put a vinyl curtain in front of my makerbot to specifically cause heat buildup, as the warm air caused parts to warp less (since my rep2 doesn't have a heated bed). It keeps out dust too! Recommend taping the vinyl at the top and using magnets on the side edges.
