We are all African. Part 2 & 3 of Big Picture Science talk about history of humanity and I really liked Fatimah Jackson's explanation of the EUROTAST project.

Okay the print is working but I'm getting pretty creeped out.

The apartment from Friends. At least the spot the used for the shot from outside. But the place below it isn't Central Perk. On the list for next time I'm in New York.

NASA has a bunch of 3d models available for download. The wrench is the only one I've seen that's made for printing but a bunch have .stl files or Blender files to play with.

I'm not an athletic person. Yesterday I found a spot halfway between home and Santa Cruz. Then I spent two hours pedaling there and another two hours pedaling back. The electric assist definitely helped but it was pretty much done after 18 miles (half way). One of these days maybe I'll make it all the way down to Monterey Bay.

Biked up to Fremont Older Open Space Preserve today. On the way home I found I'd just hit the north edge of Saratoga. I always go out for longer than I meant to but it's just such a nice day for it.

Shopping for a caliper. Saw a plastic one. Immediately thought (as I now do when I see plastic things) "Hey! I could print that." And it only took me a second to realize the reason I want a caliper is to measure things that come out of the printer.
