You might have noticed that it grew a bit silent on here over the last couple of months. The reason is simply that my day job grew very demanding and even though I had reduced said job to four days a  week for the sake of OctoPrint back in September, the amount of community management, support, bug fixing, ticket moderation etc ate up the resulting dedicated OctoPrint day almost completely which made working on new features difficult if not impossible, which I obviously didn't like very much and which also started to become unsustainable.

I am very happy to announce today that this will change in the very near future! Starting at the beginning of August I'll spend 100% of my working hours working on OctoPrint. These are really great news and I am very excited to be able to turn my hobby and passion into my job! +bq, a Spanish technology company that has recently started working on Open Source do-it-yourself projects including (but not limited to) 3D printing, has offered me the possibility to continue the development of OctoPrint with them, providing the project a full team of developers, UI and UX designers, QA department and technical support, with me in the lead. This being exciting enough as it is, most important of all I can also assure you that OctoPrint will remain open and will keep the same spirit as on the very first day.

I am really looking forward to what we'll be able to achieve!

Pi Powered Prusa, thanks to #octoprint . Using this mounting plate to attache the Pi to the frame: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:37889
Unfortunately, the addition of the Pi and USB hub has ruined my decent-but-not-great wiring job! I need to find some super-short USB cables to go between the USB hub and the Pi.

I'm trying to resurrect the PIR motion sensor network at LVL1 with a Raspberry Pi and custom board.  Trying to write some software for it, only to find out that COSM was bought by Pachube was bought by Xively, and turned into some super-commercial offering.

I just want to upload a bunch of datapoints to the web and see them graphed! I'll pay for it, but not $1000 a year, sheesh!

Now I have to work up the motivation to build my own data storage and graphing stack from the ground up before I can finish this project!

Yeah, the whole Pachube story is bewildering. First, a name nobody could pronounce. Then, cosm, which seemed sensible enough (here at Bloominglabs up North of you, we put some motion sensors and stuff online since the Pachube days), but now, Xively, which I'm not sure I pronounce correctly, and I don't particularly like. Anyhow I believe there are similar sites out there but I need to investigate more. Curious to see what you do as well...

I have not received trash pickup in over 3 weeks, and the voicemail box is constantly full. Service was sporadic throughout the holidays, and during the winter snows, but as the weather has improved, service has gotten worse. Their billing appears to have failed, too. I'll be switching to another garbage service.
