Eclipses and Volcanoes

Today, like many other Americans, I saw an eclipse. This is my second; the first was when I was in elementary school in Madison Tennessee. I understand the physics behind today’s eclipse much more than I did as a child, but I still have the same wonder that I had then.

I think I’d like to see a volcano.

Fixed: Fusion 360 streamer.log is huge and taking up all of my disk space

I had a low disk space problem on my PC, which is odd because I just archived off a probably unhealthy amount of industrial robot pictures.

Digging around, I found that the Fusion 360 Streamer.Log was 31GB, yeouch!

According to the fine folks at AutoDesk this is a known issue and they will have a fix for it soon.  In the interim, you can fix it to get the disk space back.

To fix it:
  • Use Task Manager to kill streamer.exe
  • Delete
    • C:\Users\<your username here>\AppData\Local\Autodesk\autodesk.webdeploy.streamer.log
Fusion 360 still works and I can bring back some of my robots.  Life is good.
