For anyone who still owns some of the early generation Replicators, someone has figured out how to make Octoprint work with them.  I've been doing some test prints and everything is working as you would expect.

Evening everyone.  I thought I would share a project I finished last weekend.  Used an old, broken SNES Chassis with a Raspberry Pi B+ and the RetroPi Controller Adapter to create a console Retro Gaming Platform.

Looking like Reddit is gearing up for another Internet Blackout on May 15th to protest the FCC's Faux Net Neutrality.  

You should give these guys your support if you feel the same way I do about Net Neutrality.
