Paws Workout
If you have a kitty the chances are she's already helped you workout anyway. So here's the chance to use the Paws workout and formalize the arrangement. This is precision work, it calls for smooth control of muscles and attention to the way you move your body, of course.  

Instructions: Repeat each move with no rest in between until the set is done, rest up to 2 minutes and repeat the whole set again 3, 5 or 7 times depending on your fitness level.

What it works: Quads, deltoids, chest, obliques, triceps, chest, abs, front hip flexors, glutes, hamstrings, cardiovascular system. 

Make it better:  You can't or rather, you shouldn't. 

Make it harder: Get a heavier kitty? try it with two? 

Perfect for: Every cat owner and cat who wants to exercise with its owner.

Anoyone else tripped up by / annoyed by there being no dedicated light button on their Pebble? Get a notification in the dark? Press any button to see it - and the notification disappears because that button does something...

+Matt Josephson Agreed. Watchfaces with updates each second (blinking or second hand) aren't great for battery.

1st attempt at a critical piece pulled the tape off the glass. In desperation, I'm trying gorilla glue. Spread a modest layer with a blade and quick dried with a heat gun. Started print while (unheated) bed was still warm. No shrinking/curling so far.

Question is: What are the chances I'll get this off tomorrow morning when it's finished???

+Jon Gordon Start on clean glass, short bursts just like painting, Let it bake dry and then print.  Once your print is done let it cool down to room temperature.  give the piece a slight twist or slide a razor under the edge it'll pop right off.

That is one seriously hip RV. Makes Westfalia's seem almost redneck...
 
At the Good Guys car show in Pleasanton I saw this really nice RV. The exaggerated look it was given really made it stand out among the other classic cars. It has what looks like an RV queen in the back, refrigerator, two burner range, microwave, and sink. It looked comfortable up front as well. If the price wasn't outrageously priced I would have been trying to figure out a way to buy it, but the tag was a major deterrent.

And just look at all the rounded bits - that' gotta be way more aerodynamic than a Westfalia!

Does anyone have a solution for keeping a text message on their watch and periodically reminding you to deal with it? (ie: persistent and naggy notification) I don't receive many text messages, but of the ones I do, most are important to me. I have missed (been late in dealing with/responding) probably 10-20% of text messages either because the message neither showed up on the watch or it did and I was too distracted to notice and after 3-4 minutes it cleared off the screen.

I use either YaNC or the built in Pebble notification for an application, but not both at the same time.  YaNC has actionable notifications (quick replies), you can simulate a press on the notification to open the app on the phone, you can dismiss the notification on the watch and phone or just dismiss it on the watch.  I'm using this less now that I've received the Pebble Time, but it served me very well on the OG.

What apps are people using to ensure they don't miss sms/text message notifications? The default Pebble configuration buzzes once, and then clears the screen after 3 minutes - and is not configurable (ie: keep buzzing every 5 minutes and never clear screen until I acknowledge)...

Try notify for pebble, I think it does what you want. It's what I use.

Made an air mattress plug this week.

Over a year ago we lost the plug to our air mattress. A couple weeks ago my wife says to me "why don't you print a new one?" And so I have.

Took a few tries to get the thread right for the one way valve (24mm outer diameter, 30° pitch on the thread at 13 turns per inch). I then copied that thread model, reduced the diameter it for the inside thread and then reduced it some more for the plug.

Added a rubber flapper and some O-rings.

Inflated the mattress and now we wait and see if it holds air...

dip it in tool dip to give it a rubberized outer shell.

Well (most of) it came off! Yeah, the Gorilla glue was overkill - but I really wanted to make sure it stuck, since the bottom was a mating surface that needed to be as flat as possible.

The glue easily peeled off the glass around the print. However it firmly bound about 1/2 of the first layer to the glass. I ended up losing between 0.14 & 0.3 mm from the bottom layer separating/delaminating.

Definitely not a recommended long term strategy.

I ordered a CoroPad to try out (http://www.corotechnology.com/english/coropad/). I will put up a little review of it. I like using paper, but replacing it every print, the spray glue... well, you get the idea...

+Sean Schluntz​ recommends getting a screen protector and +Yuriy Galanter​ asked how it got scratched. I'm not sure how I acquired this (little) scratch, but it is definitely there. Gorilla glass isn't scratch proof (highly resistant maybe).

I have a GW clear PT screen protector and I will say that it cuts the transmission of light slightly making it more difficult to see under subdued lighting. Plus it’s glossy creating more glare adding to readability issues. under bright light no problem, backlight illuminated, no problem.

The Pebble Time Steel may not have this problem since the display is bonded directly to the glass.

I haven’t played close enough attention to Android Wear users to see if their watches are having screen scratch issues.

Pebble should have put a raised bezel In the design.

Brother label printer takes 6 AA's (9v) and consumes 6W. I have a 9v switching power supply, but at 500mA, that's only 4.5W. Might it be enough? Sadly not. But then I thought, it probably only peaks at 6W when printing large letters. So I harvested a pair of 4700uF caps and packed them into the battery compartment. Now it prints just fine and I have 1 less device consuming batteries.

I converted mine to use a single 9v battery years ago, still works wonderfully off the same battery.
