@sammydog01 That was me all day. I should probably sleep more. Sometimes I think to myself, “Self - if only this patient had any idea how little sleep you had last night.” This usually takes place just as I’m about to stick a large needle in them.
@mike808 How do you get the full game for free? When I go to the site, it looks like it’s a free trial only and says, “The Free Trial will give you full access to the main game until you reach level 8 or play for 6 hours. Once you hit one of these limits, your free trial will end, but your progression will carry over if you purchase the full game.”
One of the best aspects of The Division is its open-world, action role-playing nature, which takes players into a pandemic-hit New York City — ironic considering what’s happening out in the real world.
The title may be four years old, but, it’s still a good way to pass the time with some friends, especially when you can get it for free right now.
Up until September 8 at 4 a.m. your local time, Ubisoft is giving away copies of Tom Clancy’s The Division for PC on its site, and there are no strings attached whatsoever. Ubisoft says it simply wants players to “experience a full endgame, offering you new PvP and PvE modes,” whether they want to take on the agents spreading around a virus solo or with up to three friends. It’s a nice gesture considering the The Division for PC is currently selling for about $35 on Amazon. We’ll take it, but better get it before it’s too late.
@narfcake I have this keyboard and am using it right now! It’s awesome and very clicky. The lights are awesome/ridiculous but you can turn them off or change them. I’ve got mine set so the key you click lights up when you click it. May not be great if you work with others because it sounds like a woodpecker on a typewriter but if you work by yourself or others around you don’t mind the noise its the best deal on a keyboard I’ve ever found.
No, it’s not MA compatible, yes, that’s really the entire 7 season library, yes this is probably a pricing error much like the Big Bang Theory series for $10 last year, so the bargain price will almost certainly evaporate quickly. So don’t hesitate. K? K!
34 titles to choose from. Actually a decent assortment. Most are avialble via various streaming services, but it never hurts to keep a constant library of your faves, and these are all 4K UHD, MA titles.

@RiotDemon@sammydog01 I had success with the Hatchbox stuff from Amz. But that was a different printer, and I know from experience different printer models respond well to different things. My brother had terrible luck with the Hatchbox through his XYZ Printing da Vinci printer.
@ruouttaurmind I love mine. I’ve upgraded to a glass bed as well, but printed stock for almost a year before that with no issues. It’s a tinkerer’s dream and a fun hobby. Good price! I think I paid $159 on Woot.
@ruouttaurmind So it looks as though I should buy a metal extruder and a glass bed. Does anyone have any other suggestions? I tried looking at apps for my tablet but most of them seemed to have low ratings. Further research is required.
Here’s an album to check out. At first I had fun printing accessories for the printer… like a drag chain, filament feeder, fan intake cover, and a Raspberry Pi case. Then I tried a bunch of downloaded toy models to tweak the printing quality. I printed a few add-ons for my car too (storage bin/trash can, glove box organizer, etc. That thing I’m holding in one of the last ones is a design I did to keep a tissue box from sliding around in the rear of vehicle. Works great and put it on Thingiverse for others to print.
I also printed some replacement ball-ends for the crossbar of the lamp-post in my yard. It had one end missing for like 11 years. That was probably the most functional print I did and it was fun to design and install it.
<big sigh> I have one sitting in my cart, but haven’t pulled the trigger. You guys are killing my credit card.
Since I know nothing about this, let’s talk about filament… 1.75 yes, but educate me! I did a quick google search for comparison of PLA vs ABS but are there others? Is there a brand quality difference?
Yeah, I could do more research but it wouldn’t have the real life witty banter from fellow Meh heads…
@transplant There are many, many types of filament, but not every 3D printer can handle all types of filament. I do not have experience with this particular printer, so I cannot speak to that. But I do know there are some really fantastic groups on Redit et alii which specialize on this model, upgrades, tips and tricks, fine tuning, troubleshooting, etc. Check around.
As far as filament compatibility for your new printer, I would start with the manufacturer’s product page which should list the compatible filament types.
@cf1@RiotDemon@transplant PLA is better for prototyping though. And indoor use. No odor and biodegradable. ABS is definitely better suited for outdoor and offers better heat resistance. But it warps more too, so a little harder to work with IMO. PetG is a nice bridge between the two.
The new Dresden files came out a while ago and I got a $5 credit from Amazon for any Dresden Files book for buying book 15. So I bought book 16. Then I got another $5 book credit for a Dresden Files book and ordered book 11.
And I just got a $6 credit for and Dresden Files book for buying book 11.
