Episode 11: Another One Prints the Dust

Another week has come and gone, and I have goodies for you to listen to. We take a moment and answer our first listener question, and as always there is printing news and we talk about TV, Movies, Games, and other things. 

You can download or listen to the track on SoundCloud and directly off our main page. You can also find us on iTunes and YouTube!

Take a moment to follow up on SoundCloud, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram or Facebook. You can also provide a little out-of-pocket support my being a patron. It only takes a dollar. ;)

I Wanna Rock Right Now

It has been a busy last few weeks. Aside from all of the personal and work projects I have been keeping up with, there has been more news this last week than I have seen. I am not sure if that is because I am getting better at looking for the news, or if things are picking up. I have been expecting to see an upturn in 3D printing and medical and military usage increases, but it seems like it has been taking off all across the board. I am excited to see where things go.

Below are the articles we did not cover on the podcast, and I would like to remind you that it is your support that keeps us doing what we do. Without you we would just be two guys, sitting in a basement, recording our conversations. Seems creepy when it's put like that, huh? You cam make it less creepy by taking a moment to subscribe and costs you nothing, of you can become a patron for about $0.25 a week. 

Thank you all, and see you next week!

Bring me my TADIS

I feel I need to dial the chaos in my life down down from 11 to at least a 10. While I don't mind, and even welcome it, the chaos has started to over-run all the time I have. I hate saying how I don't have time because after awhile it get old, and I am aware everyone feels like they could use more hours in the day. I was able to get quite a bit done and this week, and last weeks episode is now finished, and will be released on-time. I am hoping I can get back to releasing the episodes earlier in the week.

I will be spending tonight installing my new print bed, calibrating my steps per millimeter, replacing my extruder cables, and installing a new control board. Nothing like a printer rebuild the night before the show. ;)

The news we were not able to cover is below. Thanks for reading and listening and check back again.

Thursday never looking back

This week went by all to quickly. From the looks of it, I will not be getting the podcast out until Friday, but I will push for later this evening. Just depends on if I am happy with how it sounds. As you can see from the image I have had 2 editing buddies. Their names are River Song (white and black), and Mara Jade. I know we have not talked about a print of the week for a few episodes, but with the barrage of maintenance and updates we are doing, we felt that it was best to suspend those for the time. Don't worry though, we will get back to them soon enough.

Below are the news items that we did not get to talk about during the show. Check them out.

2 Months

We have been 'live' for two months now, and while I was nervous at first, I can say I'm having fun. We are getting new listeners all the time, and look forward to getting more as things progress.

I am actually finished editing earlier than the last two weeks and with any luck I should have the episode available tonight. I have a linked my backlog or news articles below. There is some much here that I will not be able to get to them on the podcast, but I wanted to share them with you at least.

Thanks again all and cheers!

Time Constantly

The clock ticks and the time passes. Passes on ever constantly. Constantly keeping me aware. Aware there things needing attention. Attention that takes my time. Time I have so little of and so much to do.

Just an acknowledgement that I am working on getting the podcast out, its just not going to happen sooner than I would like. Thank you for bearing with me, and I appreciate your patience.
