I need update this one pretty regularly but it’s always fun.
As if I didn’t have enough to do I’ve started experimenting on Medium as a place for some of my musings on 3D printer. My “section,” called The 3D Printer, can be read here and I plan to update it as frequently as humanly possible (which probably means rarely). However, it’s been a fun experiment so far and I’m seeing a trickle of traffic as users pick it up on Twitter and Facebook. I may even publish a serial novel on it…
I finally grabbed a link to my piece in Wired for you all to read. It came out really well and I encourage you to buy the tablet edition and share the story far and wide to show Wired that they need more watch content. It’s a great nerd topic that is far underserved.
Enjoy the read and let me know what you think. As always, please sign up for more info on the book as I approach the end of this long, weird journey.
Not that anyone particularly cares, but I recently dug up some work I did way back in 1991 when I was a Bishop Watterson High School sophomore. As a quiet, friendless nerd (except for my equally quiet, friendless friend Rick), I was fascinated by UNIX and found a book at the library that basically showed you how to write all of the UNIX commands (ls, cd, etc.) under DOS. There was another application, a fake command.com that turned your fonts upside down and all sorts of things, designed to scare people using your computer. I think it was called AprilFools or something. That app included C source code and basically amounted to a command.com replacement, albeit a dopey one.
