Printrbot With All-Metal Ubis Hotend

Back in action, new Slic3r that finally supports this pc's install of Perl, new laser-cut extruder, motor from a bulk buy a while back, some really wobbly gears (the other extruder is still extant, for swapping, so no snagging those gears), and the new all-metal Ubis hotend from Printrbot.

+Brook Drumm​ I had to holler for my brother when I fired it up, so he could watch how fast this thing heats up. Never gone from set temperature to printing that quickly before, very impressive.

You should be talking to +Brook Drumm​, he is the guy behind +Printrbot​. My printer is the reprap style version of the Simple Makers kit, which is $349 at printrbot.com. The Simple Metal is $539 in kit form.

I personally am not a supplier, of kits or bots, just a user.

Weird writing coincidence

I have been writing and posting a story, pouring up segments of approximately a thousand words a night since August 16. I got way ahead of where I was posting, almost to a hundred thousand words unposted, before the writing slowed with the holidays. Even now, though, I am eighty thousand words ahead. I have had no plan, no outline, but I just glanced ahead.

Somehow, the mother daughter reunion that my readers have been complaining about and asking for since about a month into the story is going to fall on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. It was written before November, as I have not yet reached the mark I put in the text on the first, but somehow, it has all lined up to give my readers a Christmas bonus.

Totally unplanned, didn't even notice until tonight, and I have not missed a posting, nor made any extra postings to cause this.

How bout them apples?

The most recent leak of the TPP's Intellectual Property chapter revealed new provisions that are among the most atrocious, overreaching provisions in the entire agreement. Since the TPP negotiations are secret, we have no way of knowing if the worst of these provisions still remain in the agreement or if they were discussed at all at this latest meeting in Australia.

Run away from The US of A. Find nice a nice free country like China or III Reich. This is no joke. Last week FED decided to stop Quantitative Easing (which kept US economy afloat since 2008). Ecpnomical, political and social blast wave is comming your way.

Worth reading. When your regulators are to timid to regulate, you have none.
 
Inside the New York Federal Reserve:
The Secret Recordings of Carmen Segarra
"An unprecedented look inside one of the most powerful, secretive institutions in the country. The NY Federal Reserve is supposed to monitor big banks. But when Carmen Segarra was hired, what she witnessed inside the Fed was so alarming that she got a tiny recorder and started secretly taping."

A confidential report and a fired examiner’s hidden recorder penetrate the cloistered world of Wall Street’s top regulator -- and its history of deference to banks.

To my readers

New update on the site; new chapters of Rune Ranko and Deific Wisdom are up.

Also, I've started posting a new fic over at Sufficient Velocity, in their short-snippets of chapters frequently style, called Heromaker's Legacy. So far, I have managed to maintain a post a day of about a thousand words apiece for 15 days straight now.

It's great so I hope you keep writing it, even if I never actually see most of it.

NaNoWriMo Update

Have not been saying much on this, though I've posted about it where I've been posting the story itself. I fell behind for a bit, and only caught back up a couple of days ago, with the aid of the holiday. Today, I passed the goal, 50,000 words.

Actually, though, I have been writing at this pace for a bit longer; on August 16th I started writing and posting a story in an odd piecemeal fashion, about a thousand words a post per day. Since then I have written 222,235 words (I just dropped a marker in on Nov 1st, and counted words since then towards NaNo,) which means I have maintained an average prolificity of over two thousand words a night.

In spite of that, I think this is actually the latest in the month I have won the challenge - normally I am to sixty thousand words at least by this point. Getting sick right at the start was not helpful in the least.

I did not expect, after having maintained an easily winning pace for two months prior, to manage it in November only by the skin of my teeth.

Including this Dem controlled city. We have compassion on the Transgender males who wish to use the women's restrooms but not the homeless.

It's "illegal to be poor".  For example, it's illegal to sleep under the overpasses - nobody except a homeless person would need to do such a thing, thus they're basically making something illegal only for them.

Time's running out on this one.

Went to this with my brother and niece, their significant others, and an honorary niece. Had a pretty good time, though the cars were delayed over half an hour in arriving and there was light rain. Much better than the recent heat, to be sure.

Awesome cars.

Death Valley's Racetrack Playa is the scene of an enduring scientific mystery: Rocks of all sizes seem to move uphill on their own, leaving tracks in the mud behind them. Now, scientists finally have an answer.
