I previously had a miss-print with a blob https://plus.google.com/+SteveKeinath/posts/cZ3A21Z9B5M , after a couple good small prints, it is now doing the clicking extruder bit.  This issue is getting really annoying.  I swapped out the tip, drilled out the tube and adjusted the trimpot, yet no relief!  I don't have a replacement ribbon cable laying around, as is the only other "fix" that I have read on here.

What do I do?

Can I replace the extruder assembly with on that doesn't suck?

Nope!  Non of the "fixes" I have read about have worked!!!  The ONLY thing I have not done is replace the cable, as I do not have a replacement one to test.

Again, it worked PERFECT until it did my "blob" job.  I have torn it apart and it looks clean.  As stated earlier, I reamed out the tubing.  I am lost.

I see you/Leo currently uses https://www.nitrous.io/ - What did you use while teaching Leo on the Chromebook?  I would love to be able to teach programming on the Chromebook - I know about Codecademy, etc, but am wondering if you used something different.  Also, did you use PhoneGap to ultimately create the native apps? - what else was used to create them?

Steve, we ended up using Cordova which is a slightly modified version of PhoneGap. Nitrous.io is really good, I also liked kd.io. What environment are you planning on teaching in?

Awesome! Nice and inviting to all students.  Not geeky at all!  My room is still in process -- blank right now, as I took all of the geek stuff off the walls! :)
After attending the Tapestry Workshop at Purdue this summer, one of my goals was to redesign the computer lab to be less gender offensive. So after scouring Goodwill and Pinterest, I finally pulled everything together. Here's...

It's official: My (Arduino & RaspberryPi) Summer Camps are NOT going to run! Not enough kids signed up. Anyone need a CS/Arduino/RaspPi trainer?

So, this happened! How the hell did it happen, and.... how the hell do I clean it up?!?!?

It's wrapped around wires!

This is like my 6th print.  All seemed good.  I set it to print again, watched the first couple layers, walked away for it to finish the 3 hour print, and....  white BLOB!!!!

I've had the same thing happen on my printrbot. It's pretty common on failed prints when your not there and the tip catches something for some reason, such as the print gets knocked loose. I have a green abs blob the size of a small banana.

I like the idea of students doing #3! I actually thought about something similar to that - more of a handful of scheduled mini sessions similar to what exhibitors do.

Ok!  I like the idea of turning it over to students! May look at trying that out. Thanks for that suggestion.

As you prepare for Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn's rendition of +The Internship (opens this week), take a look at what a real +Google internship actually looks like with this 5 minute +YouTube video. 

(PS, keep an eye out for intern Matt -- he works in my group!)
