How do I get added to this special list? ;-)  I'm not a coder, so probably no help there, but god knows I have a couple of spare printers lying around! :-)

It's the simple things - part 2
Having gotten the individually switched power strip in place the next step was to find color coded USB cables to keep that whole mess manageable. These came from C2G (used to be Cables to Go) but I also found some for way less $ from http://www.valuetechsupply.com/2m-usb-20-ab-cables--5-colors--5pk-35679.html. I have not received these yet so who knows it they are good or not (will report back later on this)

I'm working on TinyG and Kinen - motion control systems. The USB connects to the control boards and the in-circuit programmers. At this point I have a zoo of tabletop CNC machines and their respective programmers so it was getting difficult to turn them on and off and keep track of what USB line went to what.. https://github.com/synthetos/TinyG/wikihttps://github.com/Kinen/Kinen/wiki

Sometimes the simple things are the best. Individual switches for all the carp (sic) on my workbench. Thank you MrDJ and Amazon (~ $30). The pilot lights are lame, but it works. Like the DealExtreme USB hub, too.

Found at a Chinese restaurant. Someone at Microsoft really should have looked into this.

Looks like early Sunday morning in Amsterdam. They look hung over and she's a little off key at first, but it's great. The second tune they do (about 4:14) is the one you may have heard - Golden Age. They also look like they are waking up. I love the tram bell in the background - sounds so Amsterdam.

It's worth noting that this is a diagnostic vid. The clunk at the end of the arc is abnormal. The other version of this doesn't do this is here:

Not generally what you want to see. 323 days to perform a backup.
