Seems like this might consolidate more than one service I use... let's see.
Hive is a free, unlimited cloud storage space to share your media, photos and files with friends.

Happy to be a part of the 3D Hubs community!
 
Today we have 5000 printers enabling 750 million people globally to 3D print within 10 miles of their home! Are you part of the 3D printing revolution? http://buff.ly/1i5VEyg

It isn't exhaust note, but intake noise that comes into the cabin from the footwell. Think hiss not growl. It's also not very noticeable except above 5000rpm (and that's with the red sound changer which makes it more noticeable).

Cape Town has recently been unlocked so if anyone needs something 3D printed you are now able to have it printed for you.
Welcome to 3D Hubs Cape Town! Find local 3D printers, register your 3D printer and attend 3D printing events.

I've recently outfitted an empty room for Wargaming and related hobby craft. There's still quite a bit missing but this is the layout I'm going for. I'll add more details on individual pictures soon.

I'm a fan of most of what +Penn Jillette does so there's no way I'm not dropping a few bucks this way.
“Director’s Cut” is a crazy idea for a movie. It’s scary, funny, and very meta. I want a movie that gets my blood racing, makes me laugh but also gives me something to think about, with maybe a little sexy thrown in. Hollywood doesn't make many movies like that.

Computer Simulation Confirms the Possibility of Time Travel

Physicists from the University of Queensland in Australia set out to simulate a computer experiment, which could prove the possibility of time travel at the quantum level, predicted in 1991. They managed to simulate the behavior of a single photon passing through a wormhole in space-time in the past and engaging with itself. Such a trajectory of a particle is called a closed timelike curve, i.e. a photon returns to the original space-time point and its worldline closes.

I'm thinking of joining this #ElderScrollsOnline #guild... Anyone else have any other plans? Starting their own guild perhaps?

Started priming my #IslandOfBlood    #HighElves  recently. I've figured out the colour scheme I want, I just have a few more models to assemble then I can prime the rest and start painting.

Yeah, rat ogres do not line up well. I got an extra pot of Liquid Green Stuff for them, but I think the gaps are big enough to warrant filling with regular Green Stuff first.
