Welcome, enablers of bizarre and inadvisable mad science. The outcry against Patreon inspired me to make an account here, so that followers who feel moral qualms about supporting Patreon would have an alternative option to support my endeavors.

If you're interested in any of the components or gadgets used for Hampture, they can be found on my Amazon affiliates page.

I am also on Patreon and Newproject2!

I don't have loads to say for this one. Sorry over half of it is me talking about my problems. It would have been difficult not to as I can't think about much else currently. Hopefully I can wrangle my mess of a life back into shape by the end of Summer and we can go back to quality content every week.

Well well well. Welly welly well. At long last, a solution to the tunnles problem. It's not quite as neat and compact as it could've been, but it can still be if my parts guy ever tracks down those 2 inch diameter connectors. Until then, this solution...is acceptable. Also, HamCopter is completed. Test flight without hamster to commence imminently, followed by a manned (hamstered?) flight. The big aquarium is also drained and cleaned out, although I have some decisions to make before I can commit to moving it over here.

I heard your righteous cries, my dudes, and have finally worked out an exercise wheel that generates power. What exactly such a small amount of power can be used for is still an open question. I've also attached the threaded gate valves to both habitats, and have a certain...aerial surprise...coming up in the near term that you won't want to miss.

Not a lot to show this week, waiting on parts, acclimating the hammies to living in the same enclosure.

Still searching for the correct fittings. I've gotten closer but still need to find out what hose screws onto these threaded gate valves. If I can't find it I may just bite the bullet and order a 3D printer.

At this point I am basically just Batman with hamsters. Except I don't fight crime really. Or do much of anything except invent things that nobody on Earth has any legitimate use for. Except objectivist uberhamsters I guess. And really, in the end, isn't that what matters? Not the destination but the friendships we made along the way, and the discovery that the power was inside of us the entire time.

Let me know in the comments what videos to include in the playlist! The iPod has 16 gigs so there's quite a bit of room, with the videos edited down to the same resolution as the screen. I will keep working on the smaller of the two media players and hopefully figure out what render settings will produce a video that actually plays on it sometime in the near future.
