Need a favor. Does anyone have the digital power panel from the K40 that they removed? I would need the the panel and the cable that it came with, it's a white plug with 4 wires.

USA location is preferable.

Thank you!

Hello Everyone. My K40 USB key not recognized after two times of use - and there was no change of the system. Just stop to working with "need key" message. What is the solution? Thanks!

Hi Everybody, (to all 5700 members !)

Working on our futur (don't be afraid)

G+ news, make communities to think a lot. recurring discussions on what would be the best kind of software to take over. (forum, blog, social media, ...) each of them having their flaws.

https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/113201924670346524500

but I would like to say, most of you was able to find this space, because of Google as search engine best ranking. and our quality participations. (mods, discussion, answer, links sharing, ...).
Moving from G+ will result into a massive loss of exposition.

Immediately, I am looking into.

* Protect our data from extinction (we never know): best method to backup all those interresting comments and delicious links.
Looking into https://takeout.google.com/settings/takeout?pli=1 (html & json)

* pro active search for alternative.

I would need you for :

- keeps an eyes on G+ news :
will they pull the plug? keep the data on line without further posting? create a new product with retro compatibility ?

- suggest your opinion @ G+ Maker Migration Meta Discussion.




+ThantiK +Arthur Wolf +Don Kleinschnitz Jr. +HalfNormal & many others

Does anyone have plans on where you will move this group once G+ shuts down? Or is there another group that anyone belongs to?

So just a few days ago I saw a bunch of K40 machines on eBay for around $385 buy it now... Now today I go back to eBay to purchase one, and the cheapest I can find is $599...

Am I going crazy, or did the price really jump up that high within just a few days?

Lens replacement:

Looking to be prepared to replace the lens on my k40 when the time comes. Wondering if there are better lenses than the stock 18mm lens that I could purchase along with either a replacement head that drops in or face where the lens "sits" that could give me a sharper focus point, better lifespan, closer focus length or any/all of the above improvements. Suggestions or ideas?

Note: I should be fine at the moment... I'm thinking ahead a little with this post.
