came across this jungle on a roof in a major bangkok street, thought it was noteworthy and commendable.
these buildings often have just a flat concrete roof not the usual western sloped tiles or corrugated iron roof. it doesnt snow here.

day 5 and past which i considered critical as this is where past-no-LED-lights attempts had failed.
still looking good but dropped a lot of the bigger green leaves, stems have one or two fines long roots, no drooping evident. only the container in the front has a bubbler. others i have been changing the water daily. aeroponics has been halted in the empty container. only sweet basil has survived this far. most existing buds have flowered

and used in pad gapao chicken or pork which i eat very often, mainly because it tastes very nice.
its called pad gapao but mostly they use horapa not gapao. i also eat the horapa leaves raw with various things
oh and as testament, i havent got any of those things listed wrong with me lol
all of those pictured were bought in one large bundle at 4.30 am from the local market best to get them as fresh as possible. cost for the bundle was 30 baht so under 1 US dollar. mostly i would buy smaller bundles before, 5 baht, 10 baht.
edit: boiled rice topped with pad gapao chicken or pork, is best eaten with a fried egg on top and liberally sprinkled with prik nam plaa (dice fresh bird chilies drowned in fish sauce)
day 12, still many alive and looking well. in the front those that have budded out and expired. think now that these may be terminating branches after budding, dont really know as i have not known these plants previously in natural growth.
best roots of the ones still alive.
have stopped the fish sauce and just changing with tap water daily, perhaps twice a day would be better. have also stopped spraying from the sprayer. tap water here is somewhat below drinkable grade and doesnt to my knowledge contain chlorine
am terminating this phase as am going to relocate soon, but am reasonably confident from the results that if i do manage to obtain some spirulina seed stock that the LED lights will keep it alive at least. havent looked at any commercial plant growth liquids yet.Posted 4 months ago #
NEWS FLASH ---BREAKING NEWS---
i have found my 5 previously lost digisparks... testing of 12V through the digisparks can commence:) ... soon
note here all my possessions consist of one large bag and one smaller backpack and one money belt, and despite concerted effort it has taken weeks to rediscover these digisparks.
my phone charger has been on the way out for a while so i bought a new multiwire charger at the same time i bought the digisparks. so my phone charger has seemingly died today so opened the opaque multiwire charger packet and the digisparks were in the multiwire packet. phew!
PS: my semi broken charger has started to work again. probably just gunk on the connectors.Posted 4 months ago #
did one test of 12V through the digispark. pristine digispark has blinking LED when hooked up to micro usb (so am not sure now that the blinking LED code was actually up loaded via the arduino iDE AS REPORTED BEFORE) AFTER REMOVING micro usb and connection 12 V SMOKE appeared to come from central area of the digispark breifly then the LEDs wouldnt light. may have wrong wired it. back to the micro usb as power source and two LEDs are on and neither of them now blink. stopped testing here.
soldering the pins into the holes looks to be a demanding task. so small and close together. am not familiar with soldering and cant recall ever having done it before. so anyhow if my first test has destroyed my digispark, i have something to test soldering on. lol
came across this beastie set in concrete outdoors was impressed. didnt see it switched on though
tried to upload RGB code to two of my digisparks today. arduinoIDE failed to see them. FAIRLY CERTAIN THAT MY INITIAL ATTEMPT TO UPLOAD THE BLINK CODE PROCEEDED AS WAS PLANNED AND GAVE CONFIRMATION OF UPLOaD, but as i mentioned above, pristine digisparks have the blink code already installed.
deflated as i was about to get some individual 10W RGB LEDs without the casing.
pausing to await further motivation and review my previous code upload to the digispark.
why does it take so long to proceed? i have to repack everything into my travel bag after each attempt then pull it all out next time motivation strikes.
not really sure i want to try to push 12V through my arduino mega or deumilovani so just proceeding with digisparks. more expensive to destroy the arduinos than the digisparks.
saw a 12V fujitsu board mentioned online past month or two. if i can locate one of these i may get it to play with. also notice a 12V banana board i think it was. perhaps it was an orange.
still havent figured how to use 5v circuit to switch off and on a 12 V circuit. gotta be possible. i just havent encountered the suitable switch.
sedning RGB code from 5v to 12 V may be more difficult.
yes it was banana

hmm so we need toknow if BK raspi will go on that?
ps:Power Supply – 5V/2A via micro USB port
HMM SHOULD HAVE BEEN in another topic posting there too. http://puppylinux.info/topic/and-then-there-were-3-raspberry-pies?replies=16#post-7353
got a number of these hitech different boards already and all i ever get around to doing with them is blinking a LED lol had arduino mega for a couple of years now. apparently this can no only blink a LED but fly drones too.
so you see the harsh regime of strictly enforced nirvana and continual relocation, that i am encased in is indeed effective in stopping me from doing anything constructive. (lest i inadvertently upset some entrenched apple cart). either that or i am just a chronic goofer lol
thinking recently i should just pass all this stuff by now, no longer willing or able. you know like all those unknown pretty girls on the street who just arent interested at all anymore. pass by find something else to occupy the time. OVER.
