Historical Technology Books: Farm buildings by Gordon-Van Tine Co. - 2 in a series

Technology isnt just computers, networks and phones. Technology has always been part of the human experience. All of our ancestors have looked for ways to help the survive and do less work for more gain. Archive.org has a host of old technology books (from mid-19th to mid-20th Century) available in many formats and on a host of topics. Many of the technologies discussed within these books are being put to use again these days in the back to the land" and homesteading movements. You might even find something that could address one of your own garden or farm issues, but has been lost to time and history. Enjoy! --Douglas

How To Buy Your Farm Building

THE buildings shown on tjie following pages are divided into two classes — our very superior "Gold Medal" build ings and our better than -average "Standard" buildings. Specifications for each will be found on pages 16 and 17. They should be read very carefully so that you will know just what you get in a Gordon Van Tine farm building and just what the differences are between "Gold Medal" and "Standard" build ings. As you read these specifications note how complete and thorough they are. Remember that they include such things as built-up doors, built-up window frames, ready framed lum ber, complete hardware, and paint, and that they specify the very best kind of this material. They are not in any way comparable to the average list of material furnished by the average local lumber dealer which does not include the features of ready framing, built up doors, paint, etc.

You will find in this book over 600 thor oughly practical, tested and proved designs and sizes of Dairy Barns, Cattle Feeding Barns, Bank Driveway Barns, Horse Barns, Hay Barns and General Purpose Barns, hav ing Gothic, Gambrel, or Gable Roofs.

This DIY domino clock tells the time using three LED-lit tiles via Arduino Blog

After coming across Carbon Design Group’s Domino Wall Clock, which uses electronic magnetic coil motors to reveal white dots, Instructables member “Kothe” decided to create a simplified version of their own. The clock is comprised of three custom dominoes — the first tile for hours, the second and third for minutes. Unlike its inspiration, Kothe’s device uses addressable RGB LEDs as dots that allow for a variety of colors to shine through.

Onion Pi makes your web traffic anonymous via Open Electronics

Hmmm, might be an easy (and relatively cheap) way to play around with Tor and learn a bit more about this anonymizing service. -- Douglas Adafruit’s Onion Pi is a Tor proxy that makes your web traffic anonymous, allowing you to use the internet free of snoopers and any kind of surveillance. Follow Adafruit’s tutorial on setting up Onion Pi and you’re on your way to a peaceful anonymous browsing experience. Tor is an onion routing service – every internet packet goes through 3 layers of relays before going to your destination. This makes it much harder for the server you are accessing (or anyone snooping on your Internet use) to figure out who you are and where you are coming from.
