What I love about 3d printers: just discovered I had the wrong part for a project. Can't finish the project without it. Amazon is two days and 10$ and however much planet killing pollution. Instead, I'm going to eat dinner while I wait for 1hr for the parts to emerge, costing me $0.28 + however many fractional cents for power.

Also that the parts can be in whatever fruity glittery plastic I want, or good ol' boring colors too.

@sungo I am looking forward to the day when "3D Printing R Us" has a shop on every block, and I can just walk to get the stupid $0.25 part and happily pay $2 for it.


You and I both ; i welcome our "computer: earl gray, warm" overlords when they arrive


@kemonine @mwlucas Step 1: forcibly remove the ability to make earl gray tea because it's fucking awful.

@sungo @kemonine

Good Earl Gray is a delight.

You don't get good EG in North America.

@sng @mwlucas @sungo @kemonine My favourite earl gray like tea is a straight oolong tea made by my montreal tea supplier,, I cant remember it's english name though, and the website only has the chinese name.
