I got home from work to find a box from Reaper on my doorstep. Now, I know I didn't order anything, I was just at Reapercon and would've just bought whatever it was I wanted.

Upon closer inspection, it is addressed to my WIFE! :blink: My wife doesn't paint, or at least she didn't before Reapercon. I wonder if I'm going to need to keep a closer eye an my stuff....

 

Remember what you told us about her asking at RCon about the ghost ship, and I inquired about what emphasis she put on the "You got one, didn't you?" I think you're about to find out if this mystery package is the good reaction (more minis!) or the bad kind (empty box).

I did, thank you.

 

It sounds like you had a pretty good time, too!

 

In other news, I have a MYSTERY!

It's a wonderful feeling, isn't it? ::D:

 

You have no idea how warm and happy it made me feel, the first time I discovered that minis had migrated from my side of the table to Megan's.

 

This feeling of... completion, is the only word that fits.

 

I still feel it, though the 3D printer has changed the dynamic, a bit.

OK, gonna have to start a new thread tomorrow night.   I think I might actually get all four yellow crates finished!  Those ridges are a pain, though.

 

And I think the Palamino Gold looks pretty good.  It has a nice industrial feel on the crates.

Wow, Friday sure came fast this week!

 

Oh, wait...I took half the week off; that could explain it, too.::P:

Have a good weekend, everyone!

Too fast and I took the entire week off.

 

Not looking forward to returning to work on Monday.☹️

Let's do some Friday trivia for September 10th:

  • 1846 – Elias Howe was granted a patent for the sewing machine.

  • 1960 – At the Summer Olympics in Rome, Abebe Bikila became the first sub-Saharan African to win a gold medal, winning the marathon in bare feet.

  • 2008 – The Large Hadron Collider at CERN, described as the biggest scientific experiment in history, was powered up in Geneva, Switzerland.

I should have taken the whole week off.  Went back to work today, got up and on the road earlier than normal, then hit construction on Rt 2A past the casino, took me 25 minutes to go one mile.  Finally got to work 5 minutes late, realized that the mask I had was missing a string, so had to go back to the car for spare mask, then had to walk around the building as my normal means of ingress was still locked.

 

Still, looks like things did not fall apart without me (though I had plenty of questions about stuff that should have been taken care of while I was gone) and I have time to jump on here (site was blocked from work when I left, is good now) while waiting for the next job.

Well, I bought an Ender 6 during their Kickstarter last year and by the time it arrived we were preparing to move, so it was never assembled. However, with the move and other priorities, I had not assembled it yet. Well today the g'niece Emma was over so we assembled it. Now, the beastie will not work. Gonna get a new SD card and hopefully that will work....waiting Baby Yoda is.

Welcome to the finicky world of 3d printing.  why isnt it working today?  

are the stars misaligned?

did a butterfly fart in the amazon?

did the plug fall out?

Does my printer just hate me?

Does the printer hate the printer i am trying to print?

is it Friday?

Is it Monday?

is it the weekend?

 

all of these are valid reasons why we cant get the printer running....

And if you do get it "running" there are all the ways that a print can go wrong.
