Quoting myself, topkek ... so I was connected to the E570, which is on my desk at work, via RDP. I updated the chipset driver, which caused the wireless connection to drop. I had the Ethernet connection disabled so I could get out to the internet to update drivers ... proxy, yay ... and I had the wireless set to not reconnect automatically.

So ... I can't reconnect to the laptop until I go to the office Monday No big deal, though. I had finished my work, and I have a jump host I can use to connect to stuff if I need to.

Dang, that thing looks pretty sick. The Monoprice Maker Select v2 (Wanhao Duplicator i3 v2) is a Prusa i3 clone, but as far as I know, it's not all that straightforward to upgrade it to dual extrusion heads. Better to just switch to a Wanhao Duplicator 4S for dual extrusion ... but I can't imagine using 4 filaments. A single color with water-soluble support material is sufficient for my purposes. $850 is a hell of a lot cheaper

Maybe I'll get a Monoprice Maker Select v2 as my next one. But there auto calibrating feature of the Prusa i3 mk 2 would be nice

I am trying to figure out how to get my WSUS content folder under 750GB. I think it would help if people would install Windows updates more often so I could remove some updates.

NEW RECORD! Walked 4.33 miles tonight! Beat my previous record of 3.86 miles (set last Tueasay) by a long shot!

Hard to believe that almost three months ago (and 80 pounds ago) I couldn't do half a mile without almost collapsing.

I swear it seems like just yesterday I saw Tithead and was hearing anecdotal tales about how a certain bed kept getting scooted across a certain parent's basement floor. And now.... boom... two kids. And here I am still single and pretty much in the same position I was back in the old days.

Still mulling around what I want to do about forum software for here...

I'm currently trying to decide between something free like MyBB or SMF, or shelling out the $150 for a XenForo license.
