  1. It is constructed! However it is too late to power it up. My eyes are tired enough. First impression: It's cheap and it shows at every corner. Despite the "Pro" in its name it feels far from it. The front (and back) plate where the rods and screw rod for the table are attached to is made of bakelite. I expected aluminium. On the other hand it seems to be thick and sturdy. The only real bummers are the plastic spindle holder and the plastic holders for the bushings for sliding on the rods and the plastic screw rod nut holder. I'll test it tomorrow or so before my complaints get any validity. I mean I got what I paid for: A cheap CNC for cheap money. Baby's first CNC.

  3. @nerthos I've had eyes on either Pleroma or, actually, Diaspora. But I think I prefer the "Twitter clone" angle over the "Facebook clone" one.

  6. In the past few days I watched S8E3 and S8E4 of Game of Thrones. To say that I am agitated would be downplaying it.

    No spoiler version would be : Logic is thrown out the window to make cool scenes. Consistency of powers and weaknesses are all over the place, Bran uses his superpowers of watching past present and future to browse designs of wheelchairs, Characters get to do AMAZING feats when the camera is not directed at them directly, you see way too many things die to things you can not see, you also see way to many things not die to things you can see and then randomly dissapear just so the audience will scream out the name of their favorite character to see them absolutely fine in the next shot, characters acting stupid for no reason, characters betraying the previous 7 seasons by means of storytelling. But perhaps the biggest 2... granting every tactician an anyeurism thanks to excessive facepalming... and do not even get me started on Resident Evil goes Game of Thrones. #

  9. @ceruleanspark You are a Wrian now, and a Drian when you are dead.

    Do not overthink it.

  10. I do want to talk about the implications of this unit for a moment, specifically "Dry Bones" and "Dry Bowser", whose naming conventions confuse and frighten me. When I die, will I become Dry Brian? Is a living Bowser Wet Bowser? Why do Piranha Plant have bone in it?

  11. Every time someone advertises a vaporizer, and I find out it ISN'T a ray gun, I die a little inside.

  15. Current mood: that one Dethklok song about how he wished everyone else was dead rather than give away of his money to the government.

  17. Ever thought "Oh wow, all those memories I have of more than 5 years ago mean a lot to me, but they are probably just another day to most people I remember in those memories"

    Only to have your memory of your memory having memories interrupt itself with something as silly as a stupid quote from a stupid movie from 1994

  21. @emacsen @kavbojka @handle I'm really an outsider in the sense that I don't attend conferences and so don't have much of a sense of what happens other than the published talks. From my point of view I don't think you can take the money from a megacorp and then expect to have critical discussions about them which are devoid of influence. Even if only subconsciously, people will know that if they criticize too much then the money will vanish and future conferences won't happen.

  27. @bob The thing to realize about the firearms issue is that the underpinning of it in America is the class war and always have been.  The explicit purpose of the second ammendment is to allow the overthrow of the ruling class if it no longer serves the needs of the people.  Unfortunately, like any other political instrument, it has long since been used since for anything but its original purpose.
