Where are you going in Oregon?
Would be headed to Beaverton, we acquired the video QoE/QoS software division of Tektronix in the spring, I am working on a new project with some of the folks from there.
new light for walking the pooch
If you can, get some time in Portland - Beaverton is kind of boring - tech companies and bedroom communities. Ask your new team mates if any of them has a hookup at Nike - getting a tour of their campus is completely worth it (it's in Beaverton). Most of the time when I visit a corporate HQ, I'm kind of like, "hmm, interesting" but nothing too special. Nike is just really fucking cool to see. More interesting than Google, Apple (both the old location and the spaceship), and Microsoft anyway.
On the purchasing front - heading in tonight to pick up a new prescription (eye drops for glaucoma). The current drops I'm taking cause a bit of a burning sensation so this is a "preservative free" version that is supposed to negate that. The pharmacy called last night to make absolutely certain I wanted them - drug is going to be about $600/month and my insurance doesn't cover a lot of it so co-pay will be in the $400-$500 range. Just crazy! I've found a manufacturer coupon that will hopefully work to bring the co-pay down to the ~$45 range. Luckily, I have really good insurance and when we have a max we can pay in co-pays before it switches to paying 100%. We always hit the max even before adding in this drug, but still...
All you can eat sushi.
Is this something that is available in Canada?
I haven’t checked yet but I would assume so although the regular Walgreens I go to said they couldn’t fill the prescription. Bill was $495 last night when I picked it up - coupon didn’t work.

What are you printing first.
Printed a bunch of stuff so far.
Benchy (in the 3d printing world, this is kind of the 'hello world' print everyone does)
Couple little toys:
Octopus with fully articulated legs
Rotating rings toy:
Designed a stand for a vaporizer hydrotube in Fusion 360 and printed that. It's my first personally designed print
Fuck me, that is awesome, I find it super fascinating.
It's pretty damn cool. My mind is blown
I get the fascination and desire to print neat things, but outside of that I don't get it. It's a very expensive toy unless you are selling or producing items you need on a regular basis. Neat though.
Kind of like a car you supe up for your own enjoyment, and the world snickers as you roll by.
Haha, fair enough...I roll around in two Volvo wagons, no kids, and relatively young...world snickers for other reasons.
No different than any other hobby. Drop lots of $$$ and have some fun. It's not the first time I've done it and it won't be the last lol
That octopus is so cute! I am assuming that all the parts were printed separately and then snapped together?
Actually no. Printed all as one print
Flight to vancouver and return from victoria in June. 4 night stay in Vancouver and a bunch of misc nights on vancouver island.
That's pretty wild.
Gas, bag of chips, and a can of diet Dr Pepper in Maine this morning. Post office was closed, so I had to drive an extra 45 mins to the next closest one and needed road snacks.
Then groceries, and cough syrup on my way home.
Couple packs of wings, cheese slices, a pack of hot dogs and a bag of oranges because I'm trying to eat healthier.
Just fired mine up this weekend! What are you using for a slicer?
What printer did you get? mk3s?
I went with the ender 3 pro. Figured I would start cheap, it wasn't bad to assemble.
I have been using Ultimaker Cura for the slicer and Fusion 360.
nice! I like Fusion 360. I've made a few different parts with it now
Awesome, how was assembly?
I have the same generator, works good
I 3d printed a nerf gun
It's a really well made kit. Wasn't bad to assemble at all imo. I had it printing in two evenings It's been running pretty much nonstop since then lol
You gonna print some sweet S2K mods
going to print a template to put my S2000 badges back on the car all lined up like OEM
