  1. I bought a laptop mouse that is almost silent. At first it was weird not to hear a high-pitched click but not having it is refreshing.

  2. @oracle Aaah. Well then... I don't think it's possible. I live in an apartment building with parking opportunities on the other side of the street (40m), or nearer, over the sidewalk (8m). I don't think I can lead an extension cable to either places.

  3. @scribus A friend of mine is super anemic. Usually he has so few blood cells that it'd be considered to be critical for any other person. He's so used to have so few that his body arranged with it. But he's under medical observation, especially because the cause of his anemia couldn't be determined yet (for over 25 years).

  4. @oracle What is level one? (Here are 220V 50Hz)

  5. @oracle The nearest charging station is at a shopping center a few kilometers away from my home but it'd be a hassle to charge there, especially when the only two stations are always occupied when I go there.

  6. @oracle I'd like to have an electric car but there is no way for me to have a charging station at work or at home.

  7. @oracle Wow. I expected the Tesla to be more expensive.

  8. @oracle Just have more patience. I wait a few years after a console was released and buy its predecessor. It's the sweet spot for having a console in good condition, getting a few games bundled in, a low price, and a lot of people trying to get rid of their machine for a new one. I miss the hype and the excitement of new releases but I rather have other people having their good/bad experiences with games first and I pick them up later.

  9. @oracle Apart from the waiting time, how much do they differ in price?

  10. I'm slowly catching up: I have a Wii U.

  11. @oracle I suggest watching the Videos of the YouTube user Technology Connections. He has some videos about that car.

  13. I printed my first model that I modeled myself. It's a case for an Arduino Mega with a TFT shield. And of course I measured it wrong and it's 1mm too short. I'm looking into salvaging this or printing it again. I don't want to waste my print but I'm strongly considering doing it again.

  14. @scribus I would if I knew what to replace it with. The mouse still "works" but that constant double-clicking is super annoying. Whenever I have the nerves to try to fix it I'll certainly try to 3d print a replacement (if needed). So far I 3d printed a small cover for the 3d printer, a Vive controller stand, a miniature holder for painting, and a watch stand for my father. So far I broke my miniature holder's thread rod and I had to glue the bottle cap part to the grip part (I don't intend to use the vice thing for larger minis anyway), the Vive controller stand's cable slot is way too narrow and the USB cable plug holder is too small for my cables, and the 3d printer cover has a hole not at the right place. Only the watch stand my father uses is flawless (except for 4 misprints because of my fault that were caught very early). I have to learn a lot before I print perfect parts.

  15. After 12 years I've retired my laptop mouse. It kept double-clicking instead of single-clicking and it got really annoying. I've opened it up but the mechanical parts are so much out of whack that I'm not bothered to attempt to repair it.

  16. I booked a hotel in Berlin and the hotel spammed my email inbox with special promotions. Upon unsubscribing to their newsletter (which I never explicitly agreeing to it) a JS popup appeared for registering to the newsletter. What the heck!?!

  17. I'm trying to learn how to use a 3D CAD program. I want to create an enclosure for a temperature/humidity display and sensor first. It's just a box with a a few holes. What can go wrong?

  19. @firestormdangerdash Jokes on you. Everything *can* be a sex toy.

  20. I printed a sex toy... no... It's a miniature figure holder for painting. (Download: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2718851 ) http://rainbowdash.net/attachment/872042

  21. I did taxes today... or at least I let someone do my taxes. I get a sizable amount of money back.

  23. I'm shocked by the lack of quality L3-37 computer desktop wallpapers.

  24. Came back from "L3-37 A Star Wars Story"... I mean "Han Solo A Star Wars Story". I enjoyed it very much. And yet again the droid is the show stealer.

  25. First print failed. Somehow I took the wrong settings and the bed wasn't level.

  26. Printer assembled. After a lot of fiddling I'm printing the Benchie, a little boat that a lot of people use to test their printers because it features a lot of overhangs, verticality and doesn't waste a ton of plastics.

  27. @firestormdangerdash I have only a feeble FDM printer that'll squirt out plastic in rounded layers. And I have currently a spool of black PLA. I'll print a pony for sure but it'll take some post processing to make the surface smooth (acetone or using sand paper and car filler spray). For now I want to print a few more useful things like fitting enclosures for my micro controller projects or a Vive controller holder and charging station.

  30. My 3D printer arrived! I'm to exhausted to assemble it right away. I'll do it tomorrow.
