This week it’s a return to Mot’s shop. Sure we visited Mot in the early days, before things got more organized. But that was a social call, and this is, after all the more serious matter of an inspection.
MsDebbieP likes the ambient dust filtration, the tight organization and the lighting. I was excited by the Cat5 cabling and shopcam. For a small shop, there are all the necessary tools and some very high-tech toys.
Mot has been experimenting with a lathe instruction series as part of the CyberSkillShare series (or CSS, not to be confused with Cascading Style Sheets for those web designers amongst us), and they have been quite informative. Even if you are a voracious reader, there is something that gels learning faster when there are pictures or video to refer to.
After some serious concern following a recent break-in, Mot has installed some not-so-common security features.
Even if you are in the Mission Impossible Unit, you should think twice before attempting to breech this perimeter. CyberToolShare by appointment only.
The Many Faces of Mot
Many of us have known Mot to favor his alter-ego “Spid-tato Man”. He has branched out in recent days, and I wanted to ask him a bit about these alternate characters. Darth Tater represents his recent security concerns. We asked for and were granted a group portrait. He is working to see if R2-Potatoo can be utilized for tight camera work in the CSS series, but I was unable to find a Cat5 or bluetooth interface anywhere (and I looked as closely as decorum would permit). More will likely be revealed…
In sum total I think Optimash Prime (the character in the lower right corner of the group shot) has it right. It’s thumbs up on the Inspection. Mot for a great shop, and sterling teaching efforts, go get your certificate.
