Two Thoughts

1. I am going to start delving into/learning ReactJS this weekend. Been reading up on it since it’s important to the future of WordPress. It’s made a bunch of ideas bubble up.

2. I had something, but it’s gone now. Hooray! Leaves more room in my brain for bar trivia tonight with my old co-workers!

Awesome Weekend

Holy shit, what a fucking fantastic weekend. Coming into Wednesday, I was thinking I was going to be seeing Rogue One and watching the Vikings on Sunday.

Hacks: November 2016

Return to the RepRap

3D printer head

The end of October and the beginning of November saw me get back to working on my RepRap-powered 3D printer project. It had been stalled for quite awhile, and to kick things back into gear, I went ahead and got some more of the much-needed materials so that I could start tinkering again.
