I am happen to be a dad of five lovely children, married to a wonderful wife (since 2004) and im working as a 1st/2nd Level TechSupporter for a company named BörseGo in Munich.

I love Zombies, Gaming, NERF Guns, MineCraft, LEGO, 3D Printing, Hackerspaces and there is almost no country in the world where i don't know at least ONE person who i could ask about their local TechCommunity.

good read
The discussion on a recent post of mine turned to sex work, its morals, its politics, and its law. A theme that came up repeatedly -- and rightly so -- is the importance of seeing any work from the perspective of the people who do it. +Joshua O'Madadhain found this extraordinary article in that category: written by a porn star, about his work and his life and how they intertwine.

I've known a number of people who work in this field, and I would say that Habib's description really rings true to everything I've ever heard anyone else say -- but few have written quite so powerfully about it.

(The link is entirely SFW, incidentally, unless the mere mention of the word "porn" frightens you.)

Oh my.
Sad news from MakerBot.
MakerBot, the company that became a leading voice in desktop 3D printing by taking desktop additive manufacturing from build-it-yourself kits to refined consumer devices, has just let go of 20% of its workforce and closed its brick-and-mortar stores. According to reporting by Motherboard, the reduction represents about 100 employees of the Brooklyn-based …

Not entirely unexpected TBH. They've been making a loss for a while (from memory) and the stores have been unsustainable from the start IMO.

Mini shark materials and instructions...
toilet paper tubes
school glue
paint brush
container for water
packing paper (for the mache/plastering part of project, ripped into irregular pieces no larger than an inch or so)
tape scotch or masking
scissors, zigzag and regular
whatever color tissue paper you want
(paint is fine if you don't have colored tissue paper...)
black marker
plain white paper for teef

Follow the pictures for step by step...

If you don't have zigzag scissors, just cut teef on yer own...

For binding paper, I saved the checkout wrapping paper from IKEA, it's similar to the packing paper used when you move. I like it because it rips well, and takes water and glue mix well.
Use wet paint brush to "pick up" pieces of paper to stick on shark, it's less messy, and super easy once you do it a few times. Keep brush pretty moist, that's what small container is for.

While sharks are drying (blow dryer on high works great) cut two strips of continuous teeth, and roll pink tissue paper for will need these to be dry so when you trim and place them, they'll be dry and ready. Dry teeth strips in a circular shape, so they will fit better.
I like to make a bunch of these in stages, at the same goes quickly once you hit a stride...

1.) cut tube as marked, about one third so upper jaw is bigger than lower...cut 1/2 strip off lower jaw, fold in and tape both jaws.

2.) Fit second tube in to first, and tape.

3., 4., 5., cut where marked, you will have dorsal, pectoral, and tail pieces.

6.) tape pieces on to shark, I like to fold an edge down on pectoral fins so they have more body and aren't so floppy... And dorsal fin should have dimension, a thickness that tapers. Use tape to position where you want it.

7.) Slap some glue on that bad boy...don't be shy.
Use we paintbrush to pick up and place ripped up packing paper...I hold by tail, and can get most of the shark with out getting to messy....
Don't have to be super careful...have fun.

8.) Twirl pink tissue paper into a long rope (wetted fingers work great) and glue as pictured. You will trim right to edge later, after it dries...curl it up a will be easier to place...

9.) Glue teeth in, (i measure them beforehand and fold them into a shape that fits) then add some eyes.

Mini sharks!

Plus, from what I remember from their kickstarter, their nozzle is titanium. If my brass nozzles take a very long time to ablate enough to require replacement, titanium nozzles should be good for the life of the machine.

Unless people's approach to a clogged nozzle is to replace it now.

Ich bin jetzt seit über drei Jahren Kunde von Shirtfriends und inzwischen weiß ich: Wenn ich in T-Shirts für meine Events brauche, dann bestelle ich die hier. Kleine Anekdote: es ist Mittwoch (5ter Juni), 14 Uhr und am nächsten Tag ist Feiertag. Ich schreibe Shirtfriends eine Email: Ich brauche 150 Shirts, das und das Logo, Lieferzeitpunkt 7ter Juli (Freitag, nächsten Monats) und eine Stunde später klingelt das Telefon. Shirtfriends Geschäftsführer Robert Reuter sagt mir: also in Siebdruck können wir's nicht mehr machen bis Freitag, aber in Digitaldruck ist das kein Problem. Er hat sich zwar im Datum geirrt, hätte den Job aber hinbekommen. Wow.

Schlicht der beste Radladen der Welt. Man muss sich nur damit abfinden dass der Erfolg bisweilen dazu führt das es auch mal länger dauert. Also für die Inspektion mal etwas mehr Zeit nehmen, aber bei fiesen Pannen erwähnen das man das Rad dringend braucht, dann kümmert sich Mark auch entsprechend darum. Ansonsten: Top Qualität, Top Preis-Leistung, Top Alles
Quality: ExcellentAppeal: ExcellentService: Excellent
