Ran in to this while reading a forum. Here is a method to cast your prints in to metal by creating a silicon mold and mixing metal powder with resin to cast.

In the middle of trying to flash firmware on to the mightyboad, snap crackle and pop. 

I was having issues before after trying to flash new firmware (https://plus.google.com/114671721881901481251/posts/RNcpyxRJPce)  and finally got around to trying to fix it with an usbtinyISP and this happens. I assume that the voltage regulator went bad before without any visual indication and trying to flash it set it now set it off. Either way I guess I need to replace the board. I wonder if makerbot will replace it. Otherwise I found this http://www.mbot3d.com/products/mightyboard-mbotcube 
Alternatively could i use a different mainboard?

I'm having some issues with my replicator(original). The machine does not seem to boot. when i turn it on all i see are two black bars going across the screen. when i flip it over and look at the board the debug LED is off, 3.3v 24v and 5v LED indicators are green and the overheat LED (near Y-MIN) is red. 

According to my searches online it seems this may eaither be a firmware/boot loader issue OR the voltage regulator blew. I do not see any physical damage on the voltage regulator.  

This issue happened just after I turned the machine off and back on after I tried to load up some firmware and it failed because I did not press the reset just at the right time. When i have the on and connected to the computer via usb, replicatorG does not detect it. 
I am going to order an ISP AVR programmer to see if I can reload the bootloader or firmware though that, hopefully that's all that's wrong with it. 

Has anyone else encounter this issue before or have any other direction that I should take?

Just played Half-Life 2 in VR - extremely cool 😁 More impressed with the experience than I expected. I actually walked in that world! I loved it. Looking out the windows as the transit car pulled into the station was remarkably effective in producing a " sense of presence". I can't wait to get into the meat of the game! Highly recommended is a game pad. With mouse and keyboard, the "e" key failed to grab anything. Restarted the game a few times and that was, as of this posting, a consistent issue. As well, with a game pad, you never have to worry over reorientation of your hand on the keyboard.

I have yet to get used to an on screen keyboard dispite using them for 2 years now

I have been looking around the internet but i cant find a clear definite answer. It seams that YouTube will allow me to stream live though it and i would like to give that a try but while i do art or whatever i like to play music in the background of my stream from Spotify or Pandora. Is that alright to do, or is it not? 

From what i gather, legally, its kinda not, but everyone does it anyways and as far as i can see, no ones been hit for it.
