  1. Yeesh, Sovol is asking fun things like to measure the output voltage of the main board, and the resistance of the heating tube for the bed. Now while I do have a meter (somewhere) and can check household currents, I don't know how to do that, or even locate the correct spots..... So I've asked for detailed instructions if they want this done, while supplying a picture of the ugly kink in the bed power cable.....
  2. Our weather today/tomorrow is such fun. Started off around -10C this morning. Then snow started, and winds started picking up. We went through ice pellets a little while ago. Then some freezing rain. Fully switched to rain now, still with high winds. Currently around 1C, but supposed to go up to 7C or so overnight. And then tomorrow is supposed to be showers, flurries and fog. Then plummeting down to -8C in the afternoon and -15C with a -29C windchill overnight. Whee.
  3. 4 last round, with a couple I as surprised I didn't know the answer too, as they were my kind of trivia. So 5 total.....
  4. Meshmixer will do that for you too. You can just "lasso" the piece you don't want and delete it, then export to a new stl. Or use a brush, lots of ways to delete things you don't want.
  5. I use Meshmixer. It has a plane cut under edit. It can also do keying and the like to make sure you can match the pieces perfectly. There are some really good youtube videos. Unrelated, my Sovol SV03 is dead for now. I'm assuming since it is a Bed temp error that it is the known issue with the early models finally. They made the cables to the bed a bit too short and not flexible enough, so over time the cables tend to break. Usually happens in the first 3-4 months, but I took a 3-4 month break from printing, so it decided to failed 2 weeks after I got it all back dialed in and had a whole bunch of stuff lined up to print that's too big for my Ender. Waiting on Sovol to go through what ever steps to get the replacement build plate sent. Once I know a new one is coming I may try to fix the old one, although I'm not sure I've got the electrical skills needed for that. I know some other folks have done it, so hopefully one of them documented the process....
  6. No and Yes. I do not have anything stuck to the fridge. But there are many things stuck to the fridge: *goes and looks* magnets from my wife's travels, photos of my wife's family and friends, assorted cat related magnets, and the chores list. I know those words, but that sentence doesn't make sense..... But seriously, I'd probably start with replacing the house, as nothing short of the complete destruction of the house would manage to get ALL of my minis. After that I'd likely start buying Star Wars Legion lots, since I actually play that. Beyond that I'd be getting a new PC (presumably it went up in the fire too) and a couple of new printers and would likely mostly stick to printing minis. Not sure what else I'd get, possibly replace my Battletech and/or CAV, oh and at least get the Monster from Kids Logic again from Robotech. Anything fantasy would likely be random stuff I see in the store that looks fun or anything I might need if I actually start playing an in person game again.
  7. Had the weekly call with the folks last night. Mom's hairdresser called yesterday to let her know that the hairdresser had been notified that someone she'd been in contact with had tested positive and the hairdresser was exhibiting symptoms. Mom had been there Friday. A bit concerning as Mom has only had her first shot. She had a fairly severe reaction (like 4 weeks) to that shot which they now believe was a reaction to PEG, which she had tested as allergic to before. So she's still dealing with "the powers that be" to try to get a J&J shot (since it is PEG free) as they are rather hard to come by up here. Hopefully she won't get sick but we just have to wait and see. Locally we're into lockdown, which has had zero impact on us so far. I did leave the house to snowblow the driveway yesterday, but that was the extent of my travel for the weekend.
  8. Started back on the STAP riders.... So the first two riders I glued the handlebars to the riders.....that worked ok for the guy with two hands on his handlebars (safety first!) but the commander (shaking a fist in the classic "Curse you Kenobi!" fashion) kind of fell apart during the minimal handling needed to paint the foot controllers/pads...... so the handlebar is now attached to the vehicle and the arm will get reattached....sometime, probably when the riders get mounted. This things are fiddly little pains in the .... which is why they aren't done yet. But they are pretty good in the game so I'll keep persevering. The first bike got more or less sorted on colours. I'm using the Speeder Bike Brown from the Legion specific paint kits (done by Army Painter). It isn't a super great paint, coming out too thick and then not giving great coverage when thinned....but I'll stick with it. For the blackish parts, I decided to try the Black Templar Contrast over the brown primer to see how it looked. Not bad, sort of like a non-shiny metal with some brass or bronze to it. Think I'll keep it like that, as I'm still trying to stick to fairly simple paint jobs for the Droids. Might get some more done today, we'll see how it goes....
  9. Found a little time so base coat on bases done. So basically done. They'll go on a tray until I can seal them, then they are playable. Will do a basing batch once I get a few more things done and have a weekend I can have the time to get it all done and the mess cleaned up. Up next I really should finish the STAP riders, so I can actually play them.
  10. Alright, drybrushing and unit markings done (Misty Grey and Dark Elf Shadow). Next session I'll do the basecoat for the bases. Might get them sealed if it really goes to +5C on Monday.....
  11. We acquired a new to us cat tree yesterday (when I could borrow a truck to go get it). Will replace some of the shredded carpet eventually. Cats are starting to show interest in this one (we do have two other cat trees) but what we need is a nice sunny day since this one should be in sun in the morning.
  12. I spent my whole life in Nova Scotia until my current job, way, way off in New Brunswick ......
  13. Yeesh, only had 1 from the first round, and only because I had the UPPP surgery for sleep apnea back when they still regularly performed that torture surgery, so no longer have a uvula. This round seems to be hitting random knowledge I know a little more often. (to be expected, like Jeopardy, some days I know lots, other days the categories are US history and Renaissance poetry......)
  14. And we're going back into lockdown tomorrow at midnight. This will have almost no impact on me, other than my wife wanting to have another couple over for supper on her birthday. I did immediately book tickets to see Kings Man tonight, before the theaters close. We'd planned to see it, but just hadn't gotten to it yet...
  15. I'm not really superstitious, at least outside of gaming. In live person gaming I'll curse my bad rolling dice and put them in time out. In SW Legion I dread the Turn 4 swing in dice luck....
  16. Our numbers were skyrocketing, then they restricted PCR tests to those at highest risk and/or need, so now most people are just using the quick home tests and then theoretically entering data on a web site if positive. So our numbers no longer mean anything, other than the hospital numbers, which continue to rise.... My work's back to the office plan took a hit, as the January date has now been cancelled. It doesn't affect me since I had always planned to take the latest date possible (currently the end of March) because why would I want to have to go out and drive and park and walk in our winter weather if I can avoid it? Less than 2 months until my 2 year anniversary of working from home.....
  17. Er, diet cola..... I don't like coffee, I don't like tea before about 10 am (not a hot drinks first thing in the morning person), juice is way too high in sugar and I rarely drink milk. Water would be fine, but I generally need the caffeine......
  18. I finally remembered to get a copy of this pic I took off my wife's phone. I was out snowblowing the driveway after the big storm we had Friday. The high winds had sculpted this super thin snowdrift between two of the cars, and then one section looks like it started to fold over or something, maybe when the sun was on it earlier. I've never seen such a thin drift take such a unusual shape. Was cool enough to take a pic of before running the snowblower through it, at least
  19. Took a minute to look out the window (it's -14C and snowing sideways, I didn't linger) and looked down to see this: That's Tommy, who usually gets called Bubby.
  20. Got the keyboard/case for my new iPad today. Very helpful, as the iPad that I ordered at the same time hasn't even shipped yet.......
  21. On-line. ATM if I actually need cash. Go in only if its something I can't do with either of those methods.
