Twitter can be odd sometimes.
While I do believe that a proper interpretation of the 2nd amendment grants every American the right to own and arm a fighter jet and as nice as it would be to deal with the FAA instead of the TSA, I did not buy a fighter jet. I also did not go with a vintage motorcycle.
I got a lightly used grey Kia Soul. If I could only pick one adjective to describe it, I would say it’s boring. Acceptable fuel economy, good price, handles well enough, enough space in back to transport the occasional book shelf, arcade cabinet, or coffee lab.

Seriously! I’m not the only one who’s had this problem!
best buy, toys R us…
i actually WANT to help customers and do a great job because i take jobs seriously
none of your current employees are even trying
are you really sure that i’m unqualified??
I generally (there are exceptions) prefer to hire people without prior barista experience. That way I don’t have to get them to un-learn all the wrong stuff their previous trainer taught them in addition to training them to do things right.
gpoy when I try to smile for a picture.

hey neal, been wanting to set up a logging system for my diedrich ir-3. saw several of your videos and am looking forward to using typica. basically all of my questions are in this unanswered thread on coffeeforums/roasters where should i add thermocouples, di-145 support working? and is it worth adding 2 thermos instead of using the existing one. thanks! brian
I’m not sure what thread you’re referring to (is tumblr still not allowing links in asks?) but if I miss something and you want to do a follow up, shoot me an email.
DI-145 support: Working in the development branch on github, I’m using this myself now, will be in 1.6 (real soon now) with in-program configuration and channel calibration. Currently that support is Windows only. Should work with everything from XP through 8. Want to get it going on Mac/Linux as well but that won’t be done for the 1.6 release. I intend to put together a video before this goes out that covers how I have my IR-1 set up with that hardware which you might find informative.
Thermocouple placement: You should already have one placed appropriately for bean temperature and if you’re asking about the DI-145 I’m guessing you intend to just use the port on the roaster. That’s what I would recommend. On an IR-3, particularly now that Typica supports rate of temperature change data I probably would not bother adding the second thermocouple, but if you did the best place would be near the top of the drum, central, far enough away from the edge that moving parts aren’t going to bang into it but close enough to it that it won’t be covered in coffee beans except perhaps as the batch is first falling into the drum. Note that if you want a secondary thermocouple logged you’ll need either another data acquisition device to hook that into or another signal conditioner to amplify and linearize the signal if you want to hook it into an unused channel on the DI-145. To install that you’ll also want access to a drill press, an appropriately sized cobalt drill bit, and a tap wrench with tap appropriate for the threads on your mounting hardware.
