My deepest regret: changing the hotend in my Ender 3.

Bugs aside, Black Mesa is amazing. The graphics are awesome and it looks like a better Half-Life 2 on visuals. Xen is absolutely gorgeous.

The Black Mesa Linux version wasn't as tested as the Windows one. I got a bunch of crashes and bugs, and some stuttering and FPS drops during the Lambda Core teleportation puzzle.

Friendly reminder that the US is trying to pass a bill to ban encryption and create China-like state-wide surveillance, abusing from the situation the world is in at the moment.

Still have to figure out why updating some packages change my display font on Linux.

What's up with all these sites thinking autoplay by default is a good idea? Just makes me want to never browse that site again.

We had an Ebola outbreak in 2016 and guess what? Despite being deadly and easy to get infected with, we haven't seen any major concerns about it.

I'm not an expert but why are people cancelling events worldwide with fears of coronavirus? It's not like the virus is a deadly plague like the one we had that almost wiped out our race.

I get that mutation risks are high and there's currently nothing against the virus except for standard flu medications that treat your symptoms, so what's up?

TL;DR: Pokemon Go uses an exploit to access filesystem storage and look for TWRP and Titanium Backup folders.

I got a Trianglelab E3D V6 hotend yesterday, after 1 month since its purchase. The only problem right now is coming up with some way to hold the hotend in the extruder rail, as I haven't printed a part due to my old nozzle being clogged.

We just enabled #liberapay donations in all available currencies!

Previously we were only accepting USD or EUR. If you couldn't donate because of that you should be able to do that now.

For what it's worth, they should blame people for being ignorant and not caring about their privacy. It's like keeping your house door open and complaining about people spying on your living room; if you don't want that to happen, close the door.

I've had problems before on Facebook where people managed to grab personal and family photos from me, my parents, or friends.

I don't like not having control of my life over social media nor telling random people what I did the last years or how I looked like at a party.
