If you're doing any "fun" weekend projects for personal ops, and would like to share with the masses, is a great hashtag to follow and toot under.

Be as descriptive or vague as you like, who knows maybe you'll inspire someone else to explore the wild and wooly world of libreops - operations in the open.


- building a SBC powered home appliance
- Drudgery work like syncing backups
- Patching systems (you are patching them, aren't you?)
- poking a remote unit thats gone AWOL

I don't know what I expected, but I'm not disappointed

After neglecting them for four months I just spent the first half of my day off weeding the flower beds; and I had literal saplings growing in them 🫠 now I’m itchy af. Yay adulting

@selea You might enjoy this - its a bit more on the melodic spectrum, as soilwork is known for. 🤘

Soilwork - Nous Sommes La Guerre

I'm so hype for this full album to drop; I've been anticipating for quite some time now

Durand Jones and the Indicators - Ride or Die

In a bit of a turn, listening to some real low key Funk / R&B today. And this is fantastic - Reminds me of some jams I had on the wedding playlist :)

Hearing reports of some smaller Colo facilities shutting down due to energy prices.

Feels like another tipping point; I wonder if we'll see it that way.

Frankenstein printer is back up and running - prelim Calicat print came out great save for some stringing.

Still need curing and cleaning but this last batch came out great. So happy the FEP replacement was a success.

My mini fabricator is doing a great job.

Thermistor and Heating element fixed ✅ in all reality I spent too long being worried about the polarity of them. Considering I had to splice the wires 🤦‍♂️ but at least that’s done. (Hint: Polarity on heating elements and thermistors don't matter apparently)

Next up; extruded motor and Bowden tubes then full cycle testing 🙌

Assessing the damage: looks like the main culprits were a damaged thermistor wire; a clogged Bowden tube and a clogged nozzle.

The original heat block must have gone over temp and it just slagged so much stuff. I’m lucky I didn’t create a fire.

But the new block, tube, and heating assembly appear to have been basically drop in replacements. Working on getting an octoprint and setup so I can give this bad jammer a trial run

This print came out really well. Probably one of the nicest FDM prints I've made in quite some time.

I'm looking forward to priming and painting this little guy when I'm feeling better.

@cwebber they really nailed the whole "reddit" vibe here w/ these response generators.

Two helpful 1 obviously rail-roady response.
