Looking at how this starts a print and the configuration, I have a feeling this is a reskin of the Makerbot Replicator 1st gen.
With a combination of accessible features, smart packaging, and a $999 price point, it's obvious that the Dremel Idea Builder is a machine aimed squarely at the mass market.

It's not a heated chamber. No heated bed either. But dry filament is desirable.

Ladies and Gentlemen!  No thanks to your effort I have found what I have long been searching for: a portable solution to Sriracha cravings that even the TSA can't deny (and I get bonus points for it looking like a mini Srirac...

Now thanks to the Cosmos App on Android I am just about to go over my data usage for the month with 10 days left to spare.  This is after I deleted the damn thing a week ago.  Thank goodness for the Android based data limiter that stopped me from going over, but now I am in the dark til the next billing cycle.

Complete spam and has soured me to the entire Cosmos experience.  DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP!  If you did, delete it immediately. #Cosmos   #cosmosaspacetimeodyssey   #cosmosontv  +COSMOSonTV

I have to say I'm disappointed in the G+ community.  I learned that yesterday was #NationalWaffleDay   and apparently today is #NationalDogDay .  I've learned in the past about all sorts of inconsequential yet fun national something days through the trending.  But there is no trending for #WomensEqualityDay .  Let's fix this everyone, awareness is the first step to solving a problem.

What's in a name?

So I keep getting messages for different Nicolas Duartes, and usually I tend to send a polite email stating that they are looking for a different Nicolas Duarte...but this one lady keeps sending me family updates through Google+.  I ended up muting her, but I was curious, who was her Nicolas Duarte so I decided to start following him on G+..and then I added all the Nicolas Duartes I could find.

Selection Rules:
- Nicolas must be first name (sorry Pablo Nicolas Duarte Sanchez).  Only exception was the Matias Nicolas Duarte...because that's just weird...
- Duarte does not have to be the only last name (Looking at you Nicolas Duarte Rojas)
- After first 150 you needed a profile picture.

So here goes the experiment.  First observations
- 172 of us made the cut (again, only looking at G+)
- I am the only active English speaking ND so far
- Lots of Youtube comments
- One of us has a huge disdain for humans and a love of animals (typical kill the criminals for minor offenses and save the animals from the horrors of makeup)
- One of us has added me back, presumably as a reflex.  Hi Nicolas!

Edit: Looks like there are a lot of other Nicolas' joining!  Bienvenidos!

The posts may be on hiatus but the experiments live on (yesterday was a maple glazed mini doughnut).  http://srirachaonthat.blogspot.com will be back soon.

I'm getting better with the photos, and also with the flavor.  Yes this is Sriracha on ice cream part 2, and the result was amazing.
Mid grilling for lunch an idea struck (which was only partly beer fueled).  What better way to memorialize the sacrifices of our forefathers (aside from the excessive consumption of meat and retail services) than to create a ...

Pokemon Revisited
So an amazing friend of mine stopped by my office the other day and dropped off Pokemon X and Y telling me to pick one so we could battle (when he finally got a 3DS).  Since then I have been dutifully playing through the Y variant and having a lot of fun, b...

I had the same problem with the new Pokémon games. While amazing games for sure, I just feel like I already did everything.
Ryan, on the other hand, has been playing X religiously. There is a TON of competition up here in New York City though, so it hasn't gotten old for him. I just can't do it, sadly. I'm happy to hear your kids are playing the originals though. That's how I'd want to do it!

Burnt popovers, overcooked lobster, and the waiter spilled a full beer on my kids. The lobster stew is divine (hence the 3 stars instead of 1) but they certainly are relying on their name over quality.

Absolutely terrible. Low quality drinks which were 90% sugar. Bread that tasted like it was stale leftovers from Giant Eagle. A "special" ravioli that was flat, flavorless, and covered in oil. Service that was slower than going and cooking the food myself. The ONLY reason this get's two stars is the vue is spectacular, but frankly you could get a better Italian experience if you boiled a pot of spaghetti and brought it to the Mon Incline.

This place is like a candy store for electronics geeks. I nearly cried when I first walked in and saw the endless rows of resistors, computer components, video games, and more. This is not a place for people who don't know what they want, but it is great to browse and find that one unique item you can't find anywhere else.
