Does anyone else feel really frustrated when they look at today's tech and how it gets all sleek and shiny and ever smaller and more fragile, totally unlike what we see in various cyberpunk media where it's chunky and awesome and it looks like you could throw it through a wall?
There's a lot of horrible stuff on twitter. Please leave it there.
Courier showed up, and threw my package on the ground. That package includes a new hard drive. Thanks, dickhead.
Don't use Fastway Couriers.
I'm so tired, I panicked when I shut my eyes, because I couldn't see. I have to be here to take deliveries, else I'd be trying to sleep again.
I swear my body needs some kind of backup battery or something.
Ok, the plan:
1) Replace the damaged glass sheet.
2) Change the Z endstop position a little so the nozzle doesn't start quite so close to the bed.
3) Print something more complex than a cube so I can find out if the printer is compressing the height of the object, or cutting off the top of it.
No updates, and when comparing the config files for other controller boards, I'm not seeing why mine is resulting in shortened prints.
Unless I accidentally fried the stepper motors when I set them to move about ten times as much as I should have. They sounded like dentist drills.
Maybe today will be the day I get my 3D printer working with the new firmware that doesn't support it yet.
I should check for updates to that firmware as well, in case someone else has figured it out.
Someone is spoofing gmail accounts, check for a "via telus.com" next to the "From:" address.
Idea for a support network on Mastodon; mental health and related topics Show more
I was thinking this morning about how often I've seen folks(myself included) posting about struggles with mental and emotional well-being, and about the amazing friendships I've made here which have helped me more than I can say.
That led to another thought: what if there was a network of Mastodon users or even an instance dedicated to offering that kind of support? Users, not necessarily professionals, who are willing to just listen.

Me: Four arms
Masamune Shirow: Five arms!
Ok, I've gotta sleep a bit

Your VS My travel plans Show more
You: Going to a new country to explore the scenery, visit attractions, make new friends, learn new culture, etc
Me: Going to a new country to wander about in the wilderness, eating new animals. Finland has over a thousand bears. If I visit, they're gonna have over a thousand -1. They have reindeer and moose too, so probably only minus the one bear, unless I'm there for an extended stay. Gonna wander the snow fields in shorts and punch "lost" Russians while finding bears.
Someone started a vegan diet. I heard they've eaten three vegans so far, and are getting lots of exercise running from police. Life's a little hectic right now, but they feel fantastic.
