    I think it's in Randall's best interest to stop these Live Streams at this point.

    Blew up on the feed just like Roger does when he dislikes the what's being said to him then deleted the feed right after it ended yesterday night.

    Also I know that we're registering for something that's Free of actual money but requires us to be on the Live Stream to win the giveaway that you register through the website.

    Well if he decides that he's just going to ignore that and choose the winner from the live chat audience without attempting to use the "Random Name Generator", like he did today it just seems stupid, especially cause it's not like it's a 3rd party offering the giveaway, It's the Home company.

    Come on Randall...

    how did you actually get Bluetooth to connect. I got Carta when it first came out . I was unable to connect to Bluetooth with first base I kept trying for about 3-4 weeks to no avail called carta spoke to Randall and he said he was surprised because he didn't hear from any others that we're having this issue connecting to Bluetooth as we found out that wasn't true. sent back first base and they sent me another and to this day have not been able to connect to Bluetooth. I tried many different phones with android and also on iPad but nothing. Any help be great. I am learning to wait some time after a products been released and all the bugs worked out no more pre release purchases for me.

    I just side loaded it onto an Iphone and once I run the app, it askes to turn on the carta, the moment I do, it starts working.

    Did you drag the app onto the impact side loader? Then it asks for your app password?

    Yes. For *most* people I don't recommend it. There is a reason iOS is the way it is, and side-loads *can* cause you problems in other areas of iOS. If you're an advanced tech user, that's a different story.

    I keep an old purposely NOT updated iPad to run some music apps I find essential and their authors are not updating.... so I used it for the side-load. A fancy name for a "hack".

    The device is a paperweight without the app for me, sadly.

    For the IOS app, If you follow the instructions stickied at reddit /r/focusvcarta then you should be good to go. Most of the work for me was installing itunes and getting the phone connected to my PC. At that point getting your app password and running impact was tricky but doable. When your phone is up and showing in Itunes, then run impactor, then drag the IOS carta app to it on the desktop. It'll ask for your IOS acount email but then the password is the APP password, not your account password.

    Now this is interesting. My business partner when he read the law suit, watched a couple of Roger's emotionally charged moments, and chose to stopped using his Puffco (and buying atomizers). Said he refused to subsidize him.

    I am more forgiving. Not that it is acceptable, but working with entrepreneurs like I do, I note particular "personality" traits in common. One being a little bit of a "fuck you world" attitude. They don't really have a "boss" and sometimes forget their customers, at lease in aggregate, are their boss.
    The guy is young, and once life slaps him around a bit, he'll grow in wisdom. Right now he is riding high on a successful product that sells out quickly with every batch he orders.
    The Ego is naturally HUGE and always advises itself to be yet larger. It is VERY difficult even for a Yogi to accept criticism of one's own "baby" except for the most emotionally healthy.

    You should see my sorry "butt-hurt" self once a producer/engineer starts bitching about my drumming... too much double base, too busy, not enough snare, too much snare..... why so many fills?
    Can't you keep time dude?.... But in the big picture he is just making me better-- better fit within the songwriting, and most important making the song better.

    Not an excuse, merely some balance in context. :pray:

    After trying 5 different phones an ipad still could not get app to work. I found an old phone buried away and finally the clouds parted and the app is working. I wasn't using the Carta because the set temps I didn't like they were too hot. It's like night and day with the working app can adjust to temp of my liking. It's so much better . I wish I would of had this months ago better late then never.

    Yeah, I put it on a near ten year old iPad I use for music apps.
    I don't put any unsecure apps on my phone, which is also my business phone. I can't risk a hack, so I'm very security obsessed.

    Yeah, for Rosin to me Heat 1 is too cold and Heat 2 is too hot. For high grade concentrates, including THCa, Heat 3 is too cold and Heat 4 is too hot.
    Then what is really annoying is the atomizers degrade way before they break (at least for me -- my bus partner, his just break). Level 2 on a brand new one is not the same as a Level 2 on a geriatric one.

    no I feel you on that, I felt the pressure about the whole "Plastic Cap" issue made Randall act abnormal to his usual calm demeanour.

    I am interested in trying their SiC inserts cause they are Chinese Made Silicon Carbide Inserts but I guess he's trying to obtain the same "Medical Grade" paperwork that FadeSpace has.

    Meanwhile Fade is firing on all cannons right now bashing back at FocusV for their part in company bashing him

    Just some insight though this isn't Randall's first rodeo when it comes to using pastics in a...questionable manner with vapes (but if we were judged entirely based on the past I'm pretty no one would have a clean sheet.) I believe he was released during the TERA incident cause there was plastic in the earlier models that he took part in prior to the final V3 design..

    Either way, a SiC insert and a V2 atty are on their way out in the mail today so I'll be able to weigh it against the FadeSpace and see how it performs compared to the FadeSpace.but the cap thing I've chalked up to Quality Control.

    I'll say it here before I drop it anywhere else but I'm gonna see this one through. I have over dabs in 200 on this atomizer cap with the FadeSpace SiC insert and there has been minimal/almost no cracking at 554-572°F but it has...powered down in the sense of the atomizer isn't broken but it's level 4 is about it's level 2 on the default temps. The one thing that's very interesting is that when you heat the atomizer after cleaning it thoroughly in iso the cap will release this green Colored residue that looks like material that just splashed onto the cap and seeped to where the lid & carb cap meet but it seems to be coming from the crack lines. When I take my morning dab and swap the atty lip I'll post a picture. But as for them cracking & Off-Gassing it seems to be the caps that weigh less than the average one, which is hard to tell cause from the 5 atomizer caps (including the Everlast cap) they had a variance of about 1 to 4g difference. The one that was 4 grams lighter was the one that gave off a distinct plastic taste and the others caps just crumbled and heat pads burnt out.
  • Azn2101

    This is the material that is rubbed off a clean black outer rim on the Atomizer Cap (post dab. 572°F, 1min run time, 9-10 sec heat-up) that is over 200 dabs in with a v2 + FS insert. If you look close there is absolutely no yellow/golden color from un-vaporized wax or splash from the insert to the top of the carb cap then to the outer edges of the cap itself.

    I have a serious question: What are some of the more obvious effects of plastic inhalation?

    I deep cleaned this most recent atomizer and the cap was staying in really good (like surprisingly good) condition...on the outside. Inside the threads that must be the final turn and a half (at least 1&1/2 lines of threading) from the top were melted and now I'm pretty concerned about how much plastic I've inhaled since it almost seems impossible to think that after 5 atomizers with all cracked lids i haven't inhaled some plastic you know?

    Now I got what you're saying. I aways thought they were metal. I just bit one with my teeth and it is pliable like "hard plastic. Not a plastics expert but I do believe even high temp plastic, once it starts melting, gives up its polycarbonate vapor. I believe this is the fulcrum of safe vs unsafe microwave safe plastic. The problem if I remember what I read correctly is some plastics when melted emit hydrogen cyanide which is converted from the nitrogen in the air. The worst, for instance, is PVC pipe.

    Loving my glass and quartz even more suddenly. lol :nerd:

    Ya they deleted all "hate" posts which I find very stupid doing that on the least censored forum on the internet (hell Bluelight has less censoring and you can learn how to make anything from meth to designer compounds.)

    I don't know what's causing these weird symptoms but I haven't changed anything from my daily routine unless buying different flavors of Raw Garden are considered a change. The one that worried me the most was that during a meal at a restaurant on friday I tilted my head forward and it was like a pool of blood had been held in my noose waiting to be tilted too far and next thing my plate had a pile of what looked like ketchup streaming from my face except it was really thin (bp handheld machine at the restaurant was 78/48) and really bright blood. Then after being checked out in the parking lot and getting the "ok" to drive home I got, and still have, a searing headache that gets really bad as the day progresses to the point that on Sunday evening I felt my head was going to pop but only on the left side.

    I see these glass tops that are being made but they only support the v1 atty's if you have a FadeSpace SiC since the FocusV have a indentation that will hold it in place so I don't see that as a viable option and the Silicone/Rubber doesn't seem like the best alternative but I'm no expert.

    Btw FocusV SiC= 1.670g / FadeSpace SiC 1.562g (before use and the FocusV still hasn't been used because it has a brown stain on the bottom and is really gritty)

    20190914-140428.jpg

    They have stopped responding to me completely across Reddit PM & DM/IG DM/Phone number even though I've set 2 "scheduled" calls/Video consultation with the same issues as the phone line route so I can't get on "the list" to get the glass tops even though they're saying I haven't purchased a SiC insert, pictured above, from them.

    your bp was that low? I’d go to a clinic and have them test your bp 3 times within a few minutes as well as try both arms, I have to take mine daily and the electric ones and wrist ones always give me false readings. Since I was diagnosed with some medical issues and very high BP some of my symptoms from the high bp were bloody noses and headaches, usually low bp could make you faint or feel lethargic. Worth just looking into it.
  • Baron23

    I agree that this is dangerously low BP.

    Now, low BP shouldn't make your nose bleed.

    But given what you described, if you still feel like that, I would go see my Dr and demand some diagnostics. It doesn't sound at all right to me (but I'm not a Dr...so)
  • Azn2101

    Hey guys, I spent the morning at my General Physician who did take a 15 minute break inbetween all 4 BP & fever checks and they all ranged in the "Normal-Low" category. It was lower than my average bp when I come in but not as low as Friday night.

    They said the headache could be from plastic inhalation but there's a low chance that the nose bleed was apart of the equation. They drew a lot of blood for a bunch of tests and one special one for like if you get caught in a home/office fire where lots of different compounds will be in the smoke but other than that they don't have much testing they can do on state funded Medicare plan and tests should be back in 2-3 days. So their best advice is to go to the ER if any symptoms on this paper they gave me start to increase or show.

    They've advised against using the Carta completely (if that's what I think is causing the problem) and to stop using concentrates to help distinguish between lung...issues and the coughing that comes and stays in your chest from a good dab. Also I tend to overshoot the longevity of the dab and get a burnt throat when using the Carta so that made it hard to distinguish between a sore throat or a gritty one from those dabs.

    But they are highly concerned with the blood pressure issue cause it was very low for reasons they couldn't figure out and at my age it's just really unusual. I've been having unresolved health issues since January (GI, hemorrhoids and maybe an ulcer) so next step is to go to their office but it's much harder to get an appointment there so I might just have to wait until Colonoscopy day to tell them anyways.

    I really appreciate the concern guys.

    I know that this is a really responsible forum so it's pretty rare we see like a "Snoop vape" or something plastic-y but are there any universal symptoms that you guys could think of hearing from another post or something? Tonight it's just the headache and the clogged ear on the left side.

    you have all the symptoms of unchecked food sensitivities. Do you have to use the bathroom a lot and have bad acid reflux?
  • Azn2101
    214
    I wouldn't say any more than the average person, once or twice a day. I got C. Diff in January and again in June/July that has thrown off my GI tract so that I either have extremely hard and circular fecal matter or very soft, yet formed, and long.

    As for the acid reflux no. But it could be due to my diet of trying to stay away from red meat until the operation maybe?

    The GI issues that I know of are 2 hemorrhoids in the anal cavity and they're guessing either polyps in the upper part of the intestine or somethings wrong with my pyloric sphincter. They're under the assumption that my body was never able to recover from my first bout of C Diff before catching it again but this is all speculation from the GI Specialist.

    At the beginning before sending me out to a specialist (Gold Coast is a VERY cheap health-care compared to even Medi-Cal) my Primary did a full panel of advanced food allergies like Ciliacs Deasese for Gluten and a few other ones i cant remember off the top, also a full panel for common ones like shellfish, nuts & legumes, and Dairy products. Crohn's disease & Colitis are most likely ruled out because I don't show signs of "flaring" or other symptoms like full on diarrhea during the "loose" periods.

    They're also just generally concerned that someone my age is marked "C. Diff Prone" meaning I can't take most forms of antibiotics or things that would otherwise kill the good flora in my gut for the C. Diff bacteria to flourish. One way or another I'll find out for sure on the 6th but I really do appreciate it man.

    I dont think that the headache/underwater ear on my left side of the head is related unless the GI issues are like rapidly degrading or something but the body is so complicated that I won't rule anything out at this point, especially since I don't have a clue what's actually going wrong in there.
