My 3D printers

I have two 3D printers.

One is a generic Prusa I3 clone similar to this:

The other is a clone of the Wan-Hao Duplicator sold in Australia by the Aldi supermarket chain as the CocoonCreate:

Why that logo?

Because it shows Australia!

The image was taken by the Galileo spacecraft during a fly-by in December 1990. Unlike most images of Earth from space this one shows Australia, my home country.

nenscript

nenscript – blast from the past

One of the first Open Source projects I ever created is called nenscript. After it was released into the wild in late 1992, the email address I used for the README file disappeared, and I forgot all about it.

Thus, I was very surprised to find that it still lives on!

This appears to be the canonical page for the code, there is a Gnu-Win32 package, and it is still available as part of the BSD FreshPorts  repo. There is also a GitHub repo

I think I will let them know I am still around

Blog restarted

After a long absence, I’ve decided to restart my blog.

Mostly, it will have interesting posts or references to projects I am working on. From time to time, it may contain some non-technical content.

Let’s see where it goes.
