Fri. Nov. 23, 2018 – the day retail makes money

Currently 60F and slightly less wet than yesterday.

Kids and guests let me sleep until 9am. Which was good. Had a bit of trouble dropping of last night, which rarely happens so it was nice to get the extra time.

Got my first print off my salvage/surplus 3D printer last night. I only spent the time because it is in my office, and as part of my cleanup, stuff has to WORK to sit in here. My wife and guests both asked what I’ll use it for, and I don’t have a good answer. I wanted one for a long time, but couldn’t come up with a good enough reason to spend the money. When the cost went to [very freaking little for a pro machine] I couldn’t say no. OF COURSE I had a discussion about 3D printed guns, and Cody Wilson. My guest knew he’d been arrested, but not the circumstances. She also had a typical (media consumer) idea about printing guns. I did my best to remove the errors.

Breakfast and more later….
