Happy Happy, Joy Joy

It happened later than I wanted, but I finally got my computer up and working again. It is nice being able to work from my desk again though I can say I was surprised at how well I was able to adapt to using a laptop to do all of my work. I know it was only down for just over a week; it did feel quite a bit longer than that. To top things off I got a cold. The nice thing is that it is a long weekend so I can sleep a lot if necessary.

I should finally be able to print tomorrow. What should I print...? I have a few things in mind. Past that there is not much else to say this week. Have a good Labor Day.

Thank you everyone for your support, and for stopping by.

Do the things!

The weeks seem to go by faster and faster in the summer. So many thing to do no matter where I turn. It does not matter if it is at work, at home, or with anything else I have going on. Podcast included. This is not a complaint, because there was a time when I would have liked to have had something to do, however I do wish I had more hours in the day to get it all done. No matter though, things move along, projects get finished, more get and added, and the cycle continues. It's all good and keeps me and my mind fresh. 

Lately I find myself being called into my shop to get some projects started that I have been looking at for the last year. One of those projects is for my wife. It is one of those things that should have done a year ago, but the time has really helped me decide how I want to do design said item (yes I know I'm being vague mostly because it is a surprise and she reads this . - Hi honey!). I know I could have used 3d modeling software to help with this, but I find some things are more fun using the image I have in my head. That is generally how I do the Halloween props build. I will be sure to post progression shots as I start working on it.

I will be spending some time this Tuesday with the North Idaho Computer Users Group doing a 3d printing demonstration and discussion. This should be interesting, exciting, and a little frightening. This will be the first live thing I have done with 3d printing, though I do have more planned. The nice thing is that I was part of the group several years ago, but because of some life events it was one of those things I just had to stop going to. I have been in contact with the members from time to time, but it will be nice to attend a meeting again and see how things have been coming along. Come on by if you are in the area.

Thank you everyone for your support, and thanks for stopping by.

Let us debate

We changed the recording time again, and also changed up how some things are done and I feel that we are really dialing the process in. As a matter of fact things went so well that I feel like I do not need to edit the episode at all. I will verify this once I give it a second listen today and if that is the case there is a holiday surprise waiting for everyone (and its not even the "holidays").

My wife and I went over to Andrews last night and partook in his early Memorial Day BBQ and get togther. Not only was the food really good, the company was great, and we had fun as well. Thanks to Andrew and his wife for hosting!

There was one piece of news that I was wanting to cover this podcast which deals with art and 3D printing. Specifically: Is 3D printed art really art? This is such a good debate topic that I think it is better that we go over it later. I find these art debate topics interesting and I feel we could possibly do a whole episode on it because this is something that the video game industry went though years ago, and in some degree still goes though today. I can think of a few people that I would like in on the discussion as well. Who knows maybe a panel or round table show? I know this is ambitions, but I have some local artists in mind and think it would make for something special. I would like to hear your thoughts on if you think 3D printed art is really art by posting your thoughts on Twitter. Be sure to tag me (@NoImSoddOff) and use hashtag #Is3dPrintingArt. I am interested to see what you all think.

As always the articles we did not cover is posted below, and thank you for stopping by!
