Pidgin 2.11.0 is out! This is mostly a security release, but there are some other goodies in there too. You can get it in the usual places.

heh, well then that sounds like a server issue, although I'd still sniff it to see whats going on.

Hey #3dprinting  friends... my extruder has stopped extruding... The filament is getting caught and is trying to be driven through the extruder, but all I get is a tiny bit of ooze.  I think somehow my nozzle is completely jammed up.

Any suggestions, aside from hitting it with a torch which I haven't done yet.

#3dprinting  from my workstation has led me to some interesting problems that can arise from using a machine while printing.

As you may or may not know I started using https://github.com/daid/Cura as my toolchain quite awhile ago.  It works great and I highly recommend it.

As I mentioned earlier, I'm running Cura on my workstation, which just happens to be running Linux.  On said workstation I do all kinds of development and other futzing around.  However, last night I had two odd issues that completely stalled out my printer.

The first happened when I connected my tablet to the machine to be reflashed to factory default (long story  short, recovery went bad, didn't get an OTA update, etc etc, wanted to flash the newest image).  As soon as I plugged in the tablet, the printer froze.  I run dmesg and see that the Arduino got disconnected and immediately reconnected.

Okay, crazy, but perhaps the USB driver had to disconnect the Arduino which maybe negotiated USB2.0 or something, and wanted to set my tablet to USB2.0.  However, is it the Arduino's (or Marlin's) fault or Cura's?  No idea...

So anyways, I scrap that printer, kill all the cura processes and keep printing.  Awhile later, I'm trying to start up a #docker  image, and again, printer just freezes.  However, nothing in dmesg this time.  This starts pointing to Cura but I really have no idea how to proceed.

So while I need to print, I guess I can't start docker images or switch USB devices (at least on the same hub).  It sucks, but until I get another print host setup, I guess it will have to do.
Read this, it's important! If you are reading this, then you are looking at the development version of Cura. If you just want to use Cura, take a look at the following location:

totally digging octopi (octoprint running on a pi).  I'm still using cura to slice on my workstation but then just uploading the gcode.  But being able to monitor progress from around the house is great.  Now I just need to find one of my usb hubs so I can start doing some time lapses to keep an eye on the print itself :)  (my usb's are in use by the wifi adapter and the printer, hence why I need a hub)

With past experiences with my printer, I really didn't think this puzzle box was going to work. But it did and that's awesome :-) #3dprinting

Am I the only one that thinks having nearly every Open Source project using the same provider is a bad idea? #mercurial #bitbucket #python #github #hg

As some of you may know. I spend some time working on a Instant Messaging client named Pidgin. Right now we're trying to get a better idea of what IM networks we should be supporting. So if you have a minute, we'd love to hear your feedback! https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LBJ9ZVL

I just fired up gnome-mines for the first time in a while... whoever thought it was a GOOD idea to remove the color coded numbers should be destroyed. #ux   #gnome   #gnomegames

Today's python hack...

In [13]: class A(object):
   ....:     pass
   ....: 

In [14]: a = A()

In [15]: a.foo()
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
AttributeError                            Traceback (most recent call last)
<ipython-input-15-759019553652> in <module>()
--> 1 a.foo()

AttributeError: 'A' object has no attribute 'foo'

In [16]: a.foo = types.MethodType(lambda self: 'foo', a)

In [17]: a.foo()
Out[17]: 'foo'

Heh we actually had a use case for this... In the python requests library if you try to stream the response from one request to another, it sets the content length to 0 when sending. So we monkey patched in a _len_ method with this to make it work :-)

I found Linux has the highest I/O bandwidth.
