@ljwrites I have uncovered the summoning sigil of the dread demon Uzb'Buz, lord of USB drivers.

Tremble before his mighty power!

My friend: "When designing a PCB, it is customary to leave an extra socket empty for the prophet Elijah. Here they went a bit overboard"

@Iridaceae suggested "Comrade" as name for the new 3D printer (to go with "Princess", the old one) and I think that's got to be it.

I’m calling it a night but I’ve made good progress today! (Amongst getting many other things done.)
Logo on the printer has been corrected for @uint8_t :blobcat_giggle: :lesbian_flag:

Oh hell yeahhhhh, the new direct-drive extruder, hotend and cooling fans arrived today as well! so I can attach them directly instead of assembling with the crap standard one first

Show thread

Heck yea, new 3D printer has arrived! I’ll assemble it on jitsi in an hour or so :blobcat_starstruck:

Anyone got a chicken or, preferably, a goat to sacrifice to the gods of USB Serial drivers again?? shit stopped working for the nth time

Partner pointed out that when I put my headphones around my neck it looks like my lil fennec necklace is listening to music

And people who are invested in bigotry are so BORING--it's hard to spend even an hour with them. I know this from experience, being related to a few. So, like the hedonist I am, I choose the interesting people over the dull ones.

We’re playing “what letters are for what US states” and so far responses having included:
“Isn’t Mississippi just a river?”
“SD… San Diego? Did they demand statehood??”
“Indiana 2: Electric Boogaloo”
“MN… now that one is Manganese, not Magnesium”
“Arkansaw, that’s the one that’s pronounced and spelled funny. I think it’s spelled Arkansaw and pronounced…. Arkansack??”
“Rhode Island, of course it’s not an island”
“New Brunswick. That sounds like a Period drama. Oh wait also that’s in Canada”
“Mississourichigan?”
“KY — Kentucky, or that brand of petroleum jelly”
“I choose to believe Oklahoma is like that to stop Texas and Kansas from fighting”

Guess I’ll check the Louis Rossman forums again but that didn’t turn anything up when I last looked

I don’t want this to become ewaste but also I’ve only found evidence of one other person with the same issue and that was them listing the logic board for sale for scavenge parts. So I really don’t know where I’d start with it.

"if you were given the opportunity to be burdened with eldritch knowledge, would you take it?"

"Yes, I already know how to program computers."

Once again I am annoyed that I have a MacBook Pro from 2012 that should be usable but there's some minor logic board issue, and of course diagnosis is impossible because everything is completely proprietary secret info :blobcat_knife:
