So I bought at 3D printer. It's a Makerbot Replicator 2X. I bought it used (had less than 100 hours on it). I've made lots of small, really cool things with it. However, every time I attempt to make something that's large/multi-hour it always fails. The filament stops feeding eventually. I've had better success with the makerbot branded filament vs...

So I inadvertently plugged the vacuum cleaner into the same circuit as my bitcoin miners and tripped the breaker. Apparently one of the power supplies (a 650w) didn't like this and committed suicide! :'-( I grabbed a new 860w I had in stock and apparently managed to hook it up wrong and fried it - oh it shot sparks out the side like a sparkler on...

I get that the young people out there may need to be reminded that loud sounds will damage their hearing. However, for those of us that are old and have damaged our hearing from various activities such as listening to loud music, awesome concerts (Walk Off the Earth in Seattle was my most recent), firearms, chainsaws, tractors, fireworks, homemade explosives, motors without mufflers, high power...

Also a request to music playing services: add the ability to disable notifications/don't stop/pause/fuck with my music/etc. while listening to a good song. I don't give a fuck if the world is on fire, a good song should never be interrupted, ever!

Sorry folks, I'm not going to drink the Kool-Aid this time.. systemd is a horrible replacement for openrc! As a former Debian Developer I am ashamed that an incomplete product was pushed out on the masses.. oh wait, forgot about the not-invented-here syndrome that's become rampant...

I can't be the only one who uses the Android repo tool and feels "how can we take a good tool (git) and make it more of a pain in the ass?"

As the last Gentoo LiveDVD was created in 2012 I am attempting to create my own. An hour later I have come to the realization that I should have created a fresh chroot to build from as my system has too many packages from ~arch...

Time to make a chroot...

RMA'd two bad hard drives at the same time. The replacements were shipped out in two separate boxes at the same time with the same tracking number. One arrived week ago Friday. The other was MIA until Saturday when "a sorting exception occurred, ups has taken corrective action." Which sounds more to me like "we lost your package but recently found it." It'll...

I've wanted an HTPC for several years and finally decided to take some time and get started.

My original idea was to build a gaming machine and have it hooked up to my TV, but then I gave it a lot of thought over several months and decided that I want to keep the gaming on my laptop (that's what I bought it...

In one of my computers I had a 3 terabyte drive that I was using for storage of important files and it failed. Most of the files were backed up, but not all. The drive started giving random I/O errors so I stopped using it on a regular basis. Then I started getting smart errors and decided it was time to get the rest...

So I have been talking to a really great woman through Match.com and we had our first date (dinner) last night. It went really well! I was very nervous at the start and she noticed, but the more I talked with her the more relaxed I became. Needless to say that I have been in a good mood since! She is smart, funny, outgoing...
