Simple Modular Work Tables (WITH MAGNETS!) // Woodworking How To


Hey, I’m Bob and I like to make stuff. Today, I’m going to make some really simple work tables with some really cool features This is my new shop. Now, I haven’t done anything down here except move my stuff in and just put it against the walls So I have a ton of work to do. I’ve got lighting to do. I’ve got walls to cover I’ve got electrical to run and lots and lots of organization But the first thing I need to do is build a new workbench. Last week on my live stream on twitch, I decided to have a collaborative design session I talked to everybody in the chat and told them I wanted to make a big work table and asked for ideas So we all worked together and came up with a really cool idea. In my shop I wanted a big table to work on but I also kind of didn’t want a big table because they’re kind of hard to work Around and sometimes they just eat up a lot of space, so together we came up with the idea for the Voltron of workbenches It’s a few smaller tables that will connect together to make one big one when you need it. It’s going to be pretty cool I’m excited about it Let’s get started. The construction for this table is extremely simple, and I designed it in a way So that there’s only a few different sizes of 2×4 to cut. Let’s talk about the materials I’ve got three sheets of half-inch MDF You could use something else if you wanted to but MDF is nice and sturdy and very flat I’ve also got a 4×8 sheet of eight inch hard board This is sometimes called masonite – it’s a really thin inexpensive cover to put on the top of the table So if you mess it up, you can easily take it off and put down a new sheet to have a nice clean tabletop I’ve also got a whole bunch of locking casters and some spray paint There’s a few more things that go into this down the road, and I’ll show you those when we get to them But right now let’s put together the frame. I’m going to end up making three tables and between them I need a whole bunch of pieces of 2×4 cut to length. In fact I need 20 pieces cut to the exact same length I’m going to set up a stop block on my miter saw so I can just put the pieces in chop it and move on To the next piece and get through them really quickly There’s a really quick and easy way to do that because my miter saw is fixed in place And it’s not going to slide back and forth. First I’m going to measure out the length that I need on a board and mark it with a pencil. Then I just make sure that That mark is lined up exactly where it needs to cut with the blade and while I’ve got the workpiece held firmly in place I lay another scrap piece of wood right against the end of it and driving some screws to the table So now every time I put a 2×4 up against that piece I know it’s exactly the right distance from the blade Then I just have to make a whole bunch of cuts Just a few minutes later, I’ve got all the two-by-fours cut in case you were curious. I use sixteen eight-foot 2x4s Which is a lot But there’s only this much waste left from all of those pieces I cut the 2x4s into three different sizes one for the legs one for the long sides and one for the short sides and Setting up a stop block like that makes it very quick and easy and makes sure that all of your pieces are exactly the same Length. Next up, I’m just going to screw them together and make the frames for the top and bottom to make the frame I’m just going to screw these together end to end It’s really simple But the important thing here is to make sure that you get these pieces overlaid in the correct direction You want to make sure that they’re laid out this way so that the final dimensions of the table will be 24 by 48 I’m going to drive some two and a half inch screws from the outside of these long boards into the short board and make sure that I’ve pre-drilled all of these holes before I screw them in Since the holes are so close to the end of the board if you don’t pre-drill them there’s a good chance you’re going to split the wood Now I’ve got three sets of frames ready to go. Each one the smaller tables has two rectangles and then the large table has two big squares. At this point all of these frames are very flexible in one direction You can see that they flex a lot here And that’s okay now because these are going to be tied together a lot better once the MDF goes on But the next step is to tie the top frame to the bottom frame and you do that by screwing in the leg piece Those get screwed on to the face here where you see the end grain of the 2×4 and not the other face It’s kind of important later on Those are going to get screwed on just like I did with all the other construction making sure that they are flush with the top of the top frame and the bottom of the bottom frame and when I do that It’s really important that I don’t screw those in where I’m going to be installing the magnets later on down the road All the frames are put together now They’re ready to put on the mdF on the top and on the bottom shelves, but before I do that I’m going to put on some casters. That mdF is going to make these things a lot heavier So since I’m going to have to flip them over I’m going to add the casters now Flip them over and then add the sheets. I got 12 locking casters each one of these is rated for about 125 pounds a piece. I got enough to go on each corner of each table And I’m just going to screw them right into the two by fours because these are made of two-by-fours which are not always perfectly straight some of these joints are not super-tight and that causes these edges to Not necessarily be exactly 48 or 24 inches They’re usually within 1/16 and then eight at the most, and that’s not a big deal in this case So I’m going to measure the outside dimensions of each one of these tables Individually and cut a piece of MDF to fit exactly edge to edge. Once I get does in place I’m going to pre-drill and countersink the holes to drive screws in directly into the studs through the mdF I want to make sure that those screw heads are flush with the surface because there’s another coating going on top after. After I get Those tops put on I’ll use the same process to add the bottom shelves We got that first corner in and it is square But as we turn this around you can see that the other sides do not always match up And that’s because the 2×4 frame It’s just not square by itself But there’s a way around that we attach the first corner in that direction and now we’re going to attach this Opposite corner by forcing it into place Bending the frame and driving in the screw. By putting these Opposite two corners in place correctly with the corner the other two corners are going to be really really close to where they need to be Here’s the little thing I didn’t expect That four by eight sheet of hardboard that I got for the top of this is not actually four by eight Instead a 48 inches wide it’s forty seven and a half inches I don’t know why but that forces me to have a little bit of a gap on two sides of this It’s not a huge deal, but next time I go to replace this top I’ll probably use eighth inch plywood that way I know that the final sheet is actually four by eight I’m going to go ahead and screw this top on in the same way dis countersink some screws in a couple of places to hold It down but actually decided that I’m going to move the sheet so that all of the extra gap is on one side rather than split between Two sides and the reason for that is so that the one side that has the big gap on it is going to back up To the table saw as the out feet the other three sides will be all the way to the edge and then when I line Them up with the other tables there won’t be a big seam for these smaller tables I’m going to use some smaller screws to attach the hard board just to the mDF and not through it into the frame Because these mdF tops are going to need to hinge I’m going to use some really short screws for this and I have to countersink through the top of this But the material is very thin the countersink will go right through it And then you’ll end up with too big of a hole if you’re not careful We’ve got some more mdf to put down here on the bottom shelf So I’m going to lay this in place drive in some screws Then flip the whole cart over and add another piece in this section and screw it on as well Now comes a really cool part getting these tables to stick together like Voltron We’re going to use magnets for that in fact really big rare-Earth magnets these are neodymium magnets And they are pretty strong and pretty big you don’t necessarily have to go this big But I wanted to make sure that they had plenty of strength in each corner of each table we’re going to put a magnet in one face and a washer in the other face and we’re always going to put them in the Same configuration, so that anytime this corner hits a different corner on a different table They will match up The magnet of the other table will always hit this washer and the washer of the other table will always hit this magnet I measured down the same distance on both sides of these corners and the same distance from the outer edge So that the center point of this one is the same place as the center point of that So when two corners meet the center of these two things should be the same and they should line up. On each corner of each Table, I’m going to make the exact same markings I’m going to use a forstner bit to bore out a bigger hole to put the magnet in because it’s pretty thick the washer I’m just going to screw in on the face so it’s a little bit proud of the surface that will help it connect to the Magnet that it’s trying to reach. It’s just a matter of screwing those in and this corner is good to go now I’m going to add it to three more corners And then we’re going to do a little test to see if the two tables will stick together And if they don’t it’s okay because we can always add another set of magnets and washers below these that will increase the grab strength on each one of these corners Next I’m going to put the tops on to these little tables So that they can hinge open and I can get to that storage that I built-in onto the inside this is going to be hinged on this back edge with something called a piano hinge or a continuous hinge It’s really just one long hinge that runs from end to end. These are really easy to install I mean, it’s basically just a hinge but in this case I want to make sure that it’s recessed a little bit underneath the top so that this side of the top is it lifted I want the whole top to be as flat as possible to make that recess I’m going to use a straight bit in my router And then use an edge guide on the router as well to run along this back side and cut away just enough material so that The Hinge fits down into it and is flush with the top To make sure that I get the right depth on the bit I just put the hinge right on top of the router and then adjust it so that the tip of the bit is flush with the top of the Hinge My line up the outside Of this hinge with the outside Edge because I don’t want it to protrude and get in the way of the tables connecting So I’m going to try to get it completely lined up and flush out here, and then punch some holes to start the screws That hinge will help it attach and go up and down But it’s kind of heavy because it’s a solid piece of mdF so to assist that a little bit I’m going to use these gas struts These are really inexpensive ones that I found but they can get very expensive so just be sure to look for the cheap ones unless you want to spend a lot of money. These install really easily on the Inside they have two points of contact and you can twist them However, you need to to make sure that they can connect to the two sides that you need to connect just follow the instructions They’re really easy you screw in the two pieces snap these into place And you’re good to go. The hinge and the gas struts help it to open and close kind of safely and easily but you also Need a simple way to open it. To do that I’m going to use the trim router to cut a slot all along this front edge So you have a place for your fingers to go to grab the top That’s as far as I’m going to take the build on these tables right now. There are some things I want to add in the future But I want to use them in the shop first before I add those things and while I tell you about those things Let’s see the tables in action. Work tables unite. One of the big things I definitely want to add to these tables in the future is a shelf underneath at least the smaller tables. The large table is going To have a shop Vac and a compressor underneath it, so it doesn’t need a shelf but the smaller ones would be Awesome to have a shelf to hold power tools so that they could be ready to use anytime I need them for them to be ready to use that means those tables also have to have some sort of a power source under them, so Eventually I’m going to add a power strip underneath the table somewhere. First I want to use these in the shop to make sure that I don’t put those power strips in a place that gets in the Way, but eventually I think it will be mounted underneath the table top or on the inside of the leg It’d be really nice to have a jigsaw or sander They’re just ready to go I could run an extension cord over to the table plug it in and get to work So I’m going to add the shelf I’m going to add the power and also on the smaller tables I need to add some sort of a layer on the inside of that storage so things don’t roll around when I’m rolling the table Around I’ll probably use some sort of a foam mat or something like that I’m not exactly sure yet But if you wanted to get really fancy you could always put in Kaizen foam or something like that and cut out spots for specific Tools, I probably won’t do that But who knows. I figured out another big thing on these while I was putting them together And I wanted to kind of warn you about this I tried really hard to get two by fours that were nice and straight, but even those are not perfectly straight So when you put things together like this not all of the faces and not all of the edges are going to line up Typically that wouldn’t matter very much but when you’re trying to get two magnets to stick together They have to actually be close enough to grab so there are a few corners on these tables that are bowed Just enough to where they don’t actually grab the magnet I mean the good thing is here that all the sides of all the tables connect So you can just spin them around to find a better connection but it’s just something to think about try to make all of your corners and your faces as square as Possible so that the magnets and the washers can line up there you go some really simple Sturdy work benches that can be customized to be whatever you need in your shop I want to say a big thanks to my community on twitch who helped me Brainstorm the ideas for these table gave me lots of great ideas if you want to come hang out with this go to Twitch TV Slash I like to make stuff. I stream every week. It’s a great community. It’s a lot of fun I’m really glad to finally be able to bring you a project from my brand new shop I’m going to have a lot more videos about setting the shop up and getting it ready to actually make better videos So that’ll be coming soon, but in the meantime I’ve got lots of other projects, and you may be interested in so be sure to check those out And I’ve got some new home renovation videos that are going to be listed right here Don’t forget to subscribe. Thanks for watching I’ll see you next time Also on the smaller tables, I got to put something on the inside of that cabinet cat drawer and storage storage

How to Deal with Disorganized Family Members, Part 1 | Clutter Video Tip


Hi. I’m Lorie Marrero, creator of the Clutter
Diet book and on-line program, and today we’re going to talk about fixing those members of
your family who are not so organized. We have a feature on our You Tube channel now called
“Ask Lorie” where people can send in their questions via our comments here below, or
via our Facebook page, or just e-mailing us, or however you want to send in your questions,
but we had two different people send in the same question — one about a daughter, one
about a spouse. So I’m going to answer this in two parts. So today, Part 1, we’re going
to talk about adults in your life. Usually this is a spouse that’s living with you. And
then Part 2 we’re going to talk about kids and teens, who are messy and they’re not cooperating
with your organizing efforts. So, first lets address the issue of just personal
change. You know, we have a lot of fun with the metaphor of “going on a clutter diet.”
And getting organized really is a lot like losing weight. There are many parallels. And
one of the main parallels is that you can’t make anybody get organized any more than you
can make them go on a diet. It’s very hard to get a grown up human being to do anything
they really don’t want to do. And they have to be bought into the process [POP], especially
if it’s about a very personal change in their habits and their daily routines. So we have
to set our expectations both with adults and kids and teens, that sometimes this problem
can only be managed and not truly ever solved. It’s about compromise and communication. So
let’s talk about what to do. First, you want to approach this problem using
your very best communication skills. Now, I know this makes you angry, it makes you
frustrated, you may already have had some yelling going on and some arguments and fighting,
but you want to wait and discuss this at a time when people are feeling pretty good and
things are calm — over dinner or however it works for you — but you want to bring
your best self to the table and you want to try to bring some solutions and ideas to the
table too. You want to talk about how this genuinely makes you feel and what it would
do for you if it were solved. Sometimes if people really understand that it’s not just
being picky, that there is a reason behind it, they can buy in a little bit more. So some of the solutions you might come to
the table with are that you might want to have some bartering. So I’m sure that there
are things you do that annoy your spouse just as much as these messy areas annoy you. So
be really honest and be responsible for those things about you that are annoying and come
to the table with those and say, “You know what, I know I don’t fill up the car gas tank
until it’s on ‘E,’ I know that we have a goal of not eating out so often and we need to
cook more at home and I’m not doing that. [POP] I will work on those things if you work
on your closet,” or, “your desk,” or whatever it is. So you can kind of barter that and
see if that works. Also, you can compromise by saying that you’re going to give up control
of certain areas. So let’s say it is your spouse’s desk. It’s cluttered with paper all
the time, you’re sick of looking at it, but you just give that up and say, “You know what,
it’s your desk, it’s your area of the house, you get to manage that however you want, but
please agree with me that the common areas of the house will be picked up and will be
organized and that you will cooperate with me to make those things happen. So I’m going
to stop nagging you about this, but please let’s work together on these areas and this
is why.” So these kinds of bartering and cooperation
and discussions can be great. They may not solve the problem, but what [POP] you will
get is a lot more information which may give you a new angle on solving it yourself. So
let’s just talk about that for a second. You may be in a situation where you’ve already
discussed this death, you’ve already tried these things, and you may have to just own
the problem yourself, like it or not, make it better, and move forward. And that’s not
the most fun answer, but if you do the project yourself and organize it and have to keep
redoing it, what I would suggest is that you focus heavily on prevention. We talk about
prevention, reduction, and maintenance as part of our little diet metaphor, and if you
focus on prevention and really look at where the logjams are happening and how this clutter
problem is happening in the first place, you may be able to solve, you know, half of the
problem before it even becomes a bigger issue. So think about prevention, look at compromise
and communication, and if you need help, a third party is often another good solution.
[POP] So people that join our on-line program can write in to our team on our Member Message
Board area and they can post photos and show us what’s going on and we will give you an
objective opinion. So it may be that sharing that objective opinion with your spouse might
be kind of a tiebreaker in this argument. So this does happen and hopefully that could
work for you too. You can find out more about our program at
http://www.clutterdiet.com/learnmore. See you next time for Part 2 — we’re going to
talk about kids and teens — and may you always be happy and grateful for having more than
enough.

IPFS: Interplanetary file storage!


Today, the internet is such an important tool
in our everyday life. We use it to consume media, to communicate
with friends and colleagues, to learn, to handle our finances and much more… But the web as we know it has a problem: the
information on it is centralized. It’s all stored on big server farms like
this one and these are usually controlled by a single company. I mean have you ever wondered what would happen
if sites like YouTube or Wikipedia would go offline? How would you watch cat videos or spend hours
reading one Wikipedia page after the other? This centralization brings another problem
with it and that is censorship. Because content is hosted on just a few servers
it’s easy for governments to block access to them. In 2017 Turkey ordered internet provides to
block access to Wikipedia because the administration called it “a threat to national security”. So you get the idea: centralization of the
web isn’t a good thing. But then why do we keep using such a model? Well that’s because we have high expectations
when it comes to the web. We want pages, images and videos to load instantly
and we want them in high quality. Centralizing servers allows companies to have
complete control over how fast it can deliver all of this content. Another reason we use this model is that there
just isn’t a good and fast alternative. But that might be about to change! Meet IPFS, the Interplanetary file system. That’s a fancy name and they have ambitious
goals as well. They want to make the web completely distributed
by running it on a P2P network that works similarly to how BitTorrent works. Let’s take a look at how IPFS can accomplish
these goals but first you have to understand how we access content on the web right now. Let’s say you want to download a photo from
the internet. When you do that, you tell the computer exactly
where to find the photo. In this case the location of the photo is
the IP address or the domain name. This is called “location based” addressing. You tell the computer where to get the information
but if that location isn’t accessible, in other words the server is down, you won’t
get the photo. However there is a high chance that someone
else has downloaded that picture before and still has a copy of it and yet your computer
won’t be able to grab a copy from that person… To fix this, IPFS moves from “location based”
addressing to “content based” addressing. Instead of saying /where/ to find a resource,
you just say /what/ it is you want. But how this does this work? Well every file has a unique hash, which can
be compared to a fingerprint. When you want to download a certain file,
you ask the network: “who has the file with this hash?” and someone on the IPFS network
will provide it to you. Now you might think: hold on a minute, how
do I know that that person hasn’t tampered with the file? Well, because you used a hash to request the
file, you can verify what you have received. You request the file with a certain hash,
so when you receive the file you check if the hash matches with what you have received. Security built in! Another nice feature of using hashes to address
content is deduplication. When multiple people publish the same file
on IPFS, it will only be created once and that makes the network very efficient. Alright enough with this high level overview. Let’s take a look at how IPFS stores files
and makes them accessible to others. Files are stored inside IPFS objects and these
objects can store up to 256kb worth of data and can contain links to other IPFS objects. A simple “Hello World” text file, which
is very small, can be stored in a single IPFS object. But what about files larger than 256kb? Like an image or video for instance. Well those are split up into multiple IPFS
objects that are all 256kb in size and afterwards the system will create an empty IPFS object
that links to all the other pieces of the file. The data architecture of IPFS is very simple
and yet it can be very powerful. This architecture allows us to really use
it like a filesystem. Here’s a simple directory structure with
some files in it. We can translate this into IPFS objects as
well, creating an object for each file and directory. But that’s not all! You see because IPFS uses content based addressing,
once something is added, it cannot be changed anymore. It’s an immutable datastore much like a
blockchain. But then how do you change stuff on it? Well IPFS supports versioning of your files. Let’s say you’re working on an important
document that you want to share with everyone over IPFS. When you do that, IPFS will create a new “Commit
object” for you. This object is really basic: it just tells
IPFS which commit went before it and it links to the IPFS object of your file. Now let’s imagine that after a while you
want to update this file. Well, you just add your updated file to the
IPFS network and the software will create a new commit object for your file. This commit object now links to the previous
commit. This process can be repeated endlessly. IPFS will make sure that your file, plus it’s
entire history is accessible to the other nodes on the network. Pretty useful! This all sounds great but it’s not without
it’s limitations or drawbacks. The biggest problem that IPFS faces is keeping
files available. Every node on the network keeps a cache of
the files that it has downloaded and helps to share them if other people need them. But if a specific file is hosted by – let’s
say these 4 nodes – and those nodes go offline then that file becomes unavailable and no
one can grab a copy of it. A bit like BitTorrent swarms without seeders. There are two possible solutions for this
problem. Either we incentivize people to store files
and make them available or we can proactively distribute files and make sure that there
are always a certain number of copies available on the network. That’s exactly what Filecoin intends to
do. Filecoin is created by the same group of people
that have created IPFS. It’s basically a blockchain built on top
of IPFS that wants to create a decentralized market for storage. If you have some free space, you can rent
it out to others and make money of it in the process. Filecoin creates a strong incentive for nodes
to keep the files online for as long as possible because otherwise they won’t be rewarded. The system also makes sure that files are
replicated on many nodes so they cannot become unavailable. That’s a quick summary of Filecoin and how
it intends to built on top of IPFS to solve some of it’s issue’s. Leave a comment below if you want to learn
more about Filecoin in a future video. Last thing we’re going to take a look at
is how IPFS can be used. As I mentioned before, in 2017 the Turkish
government decided to block access to Wikipedia. The people behind IPFS responded by taking
the Turkish Wikipedia and putting a copy of it on IPFS. Because IPFS is distributed and there are
no central servers, the government can’t block it. Another nice application is DTube which is
basically a site like YouTube but entirely distributes and hosted on IPFS. Anyone can publish videos and anyone can help
to support the network. Pretty clever! By now you must be wondering: why is IPFS
called the Interplanetary filesystem? Is is suited to run across multiple planets? Well let’s assume that we have a base on
Mars. Communicating from Mars to Earth is quite
difficult. Depending on the position of the two planets,
a signal can take somewhere between 4 and 24 minutes to travel between them. Let’s take the best case scenario: you’re
on Mars, you open your laptop and request a copy of the Wikipedia page of planet Earth,
because you’ve forgotten what it’s like there. The request to Wikipedia travels 4 minutes
to earth and when it arrives there, it is send on the internet, to the Wikipedia servers
who respond in just a few a milliseconds. That response however still has to travel
4 minutes back to Mars. So on a good day, visiting a single webpage
will take you 8 minutes. On a bad day, 48 minutes… With IPFS it’s possible to cache large parts
of the internet on Mars. So if someone already requested a page that
you want to download, it can come straight from a node on Mars, making that page load
just as fast as it would on earth. So, yes, IPFS could be used to distribute
parts of the internet across multiple planets. So to summarize: IPFS is a very ambitious
project that could lead to a truly decentralized internet and now you know how it works. Make sure to hit the subscribe button if you

How do hard drives work? – Kanawat Senanan


Imagine an airplane flying
one millimeter above the ground and circling the Earth
once every 25 seconds while counting every blade of grass. Shrink all that down so that it fits
in the palm of your hand, and you’d have something equivalent
to a modern hard drive, an object that can likely hold
more information than your local library. So how does it store so much information
in such a small space? At the heart of every hard drive
is a stack of high-speed spinning discs with a recording head
flying over each surface. Each disc is coated with a film
of microscopic magnetised metal grains, and your data doesn’t live there
in a form you can recognize. Instead, it is recorded
as a magnetic pattern formed by groups of those tiny grains. In each group, also known as a bit, all of the grains have
their magnetization’s aligned in one of two possible states, which correspond to zeroes and ones. Data is written onto the disc by converting strings of bits
into electrical current fed through an electromagnet. This magnet generates a field
strong enough to change the direction of the metal grain’s magnetization. Once this information is written
onto the disc, the drive uses a magnetic reader
to turn it back into a useful form, much like a phonograph needle
translates a record’s grooves into music. But how can you get so much information
out of just zeroes and ones? Well, by putting lots of them together. For example, a letter is represented
in one byte, or eight bits, and your average photo
takes up several megabytes, each of which is 8 million bits. Because each bit must be written onto
a physical area of the disc, we’re always seeking to increase
the disc’s areal density, or how many bits can be squeezed
into one square inch. The areal density of a modern hard drive
is about 600 gigabits per square inch, 300 million times greater than that
of IBM’s first hard drive from 1957. This amazing advance in storage capacity wasn’t just a matter
of making everything smaller, but involved multiple innovations. A technique called the thin film
lithography process allowed engineers
to shrink the reader and writer. And despite its size,
the reader became more sensitive by taking advantage of new discoveries in
magnetic and quantum properties of matter. Bits could also be packed closer together
thanks to mathematical algorithms that filter out noise
from magnetic interference, and find the most likely bit sequences
from each chunk of read-back signal. And thermal expansion control of the head, enabled by placing a heater
under the magnetic writer, allowed it to fly less than
five nanometers above the disc’s surface, about the width of two strands of DNA. For the past several decades, the exponential growth in computer
storage capacity and processing power has followed a pattern
known as Moore’s Law, which, in 1975, predicted that information
density would double every two years. But at around 100 gigabits
per square inch, shrinking the magnetic grains further
or cramming them closer together posed a new risk
called the superparamagnetic effect. When a magnetic grain volume is too small, its magnetization is easily disturbed
by heat energy and can cause bits
to switch unintentionally, leading to data loss. Scientists resolved this limitation
in a remarkably simple way: by changing the direction of recording
from longitudinal to perpendicular, allowing areal density to approach
one terabit per square inch. Recently, the potential limit has been
increased yet again through heat assisted magnetic recording. This uses an even more thermally
stable recording medium, whose magnetic resistance
is momentarily reduced by heating up a particular spot
with a laser and allowing data to be written. And while those drives are currently
in the prototype stage, scientists already have the next potential
trick up their sleeves: bit-patterned media, where bit locations are arranged
in separate, nano-sized structures, potentially allowing for areal densities
of twenty terabits per square inch or more. So it’s thanks to the combined efforts
of generations of engineers, material scientists, and quantum physicists that this tool of incredible power
and precision can spin in the palm of your hand.

✔ Minecraft: How to make a Working Filing Cabinet


How to make a filing cabinet Today I’ll show you a filing cabinet for for an office that you can store things in! It’s based on a design that I uploaded ages ago. I’ll start off by making a bit of a demo wall to build against.. You can use any type of slabs you want. The stone slabs fit well into an office, in my opinion. Now we need to hide a minecart with a chest inside the cabinet. This is what makes it functional. The slab that is further out kind of looks like a pulled out drawer! Now the minecart looks like it’s the cabinet! You can still see the top, so cover that off with carpets. Now it’s time to decorate it so it looks like it has categories. There are many ways to do this but I think color-coding looks cute.. You can have more than one pulled out drawer if you like! You can also categorize it alphabetically using signs! Turning the color-coding also has a cool effect. :] Now you are ready to file all your boring office related documents! Simply right-click the visible part of the minecart to gain access! 😮 An obligatory addition to any boring-looking office area! In case you need more office things, there is a playlist in the description! Hope you enjoyed this video,remember to leave your like if you want more like this!

Cricut Maker Machine Tour – Working with Cricut Maker


Let’s take a closer look at our Cricut
Maker machine. Go ahead and lift this top lid. As you do, the front door opens as
well. There are only a few buttons you need to know. Power, of course. This one’s
the load/unload mat button. Here’s the Go button, aka the Cricut “C.” And, finally,
pause. This slot is for your phone or tablet; a detail I love because I can
easily reference or see my design as I’m creating. Oh, and Cricut really has
thought of everything: there’s a charging port right here, so your device will
never run out of power. Let’s take a closer look at the Adaptive Tool System.
This drives the mechanics of the blade housings, determining every move and
every cut. Here is the Rotary Blade. This is one of the brand-new tools that
make the magic happen. You can see the gear at the top of the drive housing.
We’ll come back to that in a few minutes. To get a closer look at the blade, let’s
remove the protective cap. Keep this somewhere safe, by the way; you’ll need it
to protect the blade when it’s not in use. The size and design of this blade
make precise, intricate details so easy for the Cricut Maker. The accessory
adapter comes pre-installed on the A side. Use it for pens or the Scoring
Stylus. The Rotary Blade moves differently than the Fine-Point blade.
The drive housing and clamp B have gears that fit together when that housing is
inserted into clamp B. All right. Now, the storage cup. There is a deep pocket and a
shallow pocket, both padded with silicone at the bottom. This one is perfect for
storing your blades since the silicone will protect them
from chipping, and this deeper pocket is great for holding your tools and
accessories. Plus, these three storage compartments means there’s really a
place for everything. Your larger accessories can go here, and the smaller
ones, like your scraper and drive housings, fit right here. Oh, and a tip:
store your larger drive housing flat side down; it will fit better that way.
Which reminds me; if you’re planning on working with thicker, denser materials you
definitely want to check out the new Knife Blade. It’s sold separately, and a
really awesome enhancement for the Maker. Check this out: this magnetic strip keeps
replacement blades from getting lost. Whoever came up with that, thank you! The Cricut Maker.
More tools. More materials. More possibilities.

IBM Spectrum Storage Suite at IBM InterConnect Part 2


Speaking of DLC (data life cycle) how can you ensure that the data is stored in the correct layer? Is it necessary to always record historical data on disk? For example, are there technologies that can automatically move data to the tape layer? Well, to answer this question, we have IBM Spectrum Archive, which is designed to address the efficiency of data storage, changing the storage economy with a layer of intelligent software. This software dynamically stores each data bit at the ideal cost. Helping maximize performance and ensure safety. It eliminates the need to manage additional software and tape to access data. IBM Spectrum Archive. How you can administer and manage diverse storage infrastructure? Do you create a single control panel? Nowadays, it is possible to administer and manage the entire storage environment through a single point of control, IBM Spectrum Control. In addition, there is efficiency in the use of storage capacity, which can be increased up to 80% in a virtualized environment, either with SBC Or some equipment in the Storwize family, V5000, V7000 and V9000, because all disks are then seen as a single storage point, and can be shared by all servers that are connected to IBM equipment. IBM Spectrum Control, with the virtualization option. Without traditional IT, is it possible to grow rapidly in the storage area? Are traditional storage solutions prepared for the cloud? We have IBM Spectrum Accelerate, which is an offer intended to facilitate the delivery of storage in blocks, in minutes rather than days based XIV technology, which has been in use in more than one hundred thousand servers worldwide. IBM Spectrum Accelerate offers a performance of consistent storage. It is scalable to over 68 useful petabytes, and has a set of functions including remote replication and granular multi-lease. It can be purchased on site through XIV storage equipment, or off-site in the IBM Cloud. With the exponential growth of unstructured data, “Big Data”, or even NAS environments, will companies be able to Manage this demand in a single space? Is it possible to access the same data in parallel? IBM Spectrum Scale enables the unification of virtualization, and analytics of a file object, into a single scalability storage solution for large workloads. Spectrum Scale can provide a single namespace, a single layer for all these data, offering a single management point with an intuitive graphical interface, using ILM storage policies that are transparent to end users, data can be used, compressed, migrated or accelerated for better latency, better performance, or reduced costs. IBM Spectrum Scale, for large workloads.
