Pains

This last week was a tough one. I spent the first few days dealing with depression. Just after I got over that, and about the time I started my weekend, Andrew dropped the bomb on me that he had to step down from the podcast. This was not expected but, as things go, was not the worse thing he could have told me. I wish him well, and hope everything gets better. I am sure the decision was not made lightly since he was just a part of the show as I am. The good news is that the show will still move on, though I will need to make sure adjustments not to mention get used to talking to myself. Who knows maybe the cats will help. They are... good... at that. So, while my work load will increase, I don't think it will be anything I can't handle.

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

Watch that first step

Hello listeners, new and old alike! This week ended in pain. Lots of pain. Physical pain. Since you may not be aware, 4 years ago I fell from a ladder at work, and as a result broke my calcaneus (heel). While I have a very high pain tolerance; the pain I went though during and since the break has, at times, been damn near unbearable. It seems like the more I use it (standing, climbing, walking, etc.) the more time I need to take to recover. I know that the break is supposed to be life changing, but like most people I don't like change. :) Thankfully I am starting a new round of physical therapy here on Monday and I hope to get better, but only time will tell.

Besides the pain, I think I figured out what was causing be issues with my MeCreator 2. In the front right corner there are some wires that go to the LED lights. Those wires were catching on one of the plugs that hold the belt gears in place on the Y rod. Since I have moved the cables out of the way, there has not been any issues so far, and I am almost 4  hours into an 18 hour print. *fingers crossed*

Anyways that is enough about me. Thanks for stopping by, and any articles that did not make the recording are below.

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!
