[22:26] <jcoxon> heya
[22:27] <Professor> have you seen these things? http://64.226.12.24/defygravity/tether.html
[22:27] <Professor> I'm looking at building one for my cut-down device so I can reliably release from the balloon at the 2 hour point
[22:28] <Professor> or at least a similar device
[22:30] <Professor> I researched similar cutdown devices made by a company that makes exploding bolts
[22:30] <Professor> can't buy those though :(
[22:36] <Professor> hehe, I can basically copy their design from their manual w/ the cnc gear here
