no news is probably good news..
and now for the recent news...
pages are getting updated (finally!)
didn't get to try any Macallan Ruby whisky this Xmas...(sad..) came home from Xmaxx dinner at sister-in-law's house and finished the last skerrick of the Oban 15yo (happy!)
The Prusa Mendel i2 was finished some time back; it worked sort of, but needs more work - it has been consigned to the shed, while the RAMPS card stepper drivers are updated
finally getting close to finishing my Prusa Mendel i2 3D printer! the RAMPS/Arduino Mega combo works and the steppers are OK: now to setup the print bed and heater..

I hope you all had a really great xmas day and aren't under the weather too much. I got to try my sister-in-law's husband's Macallan Ruby single malt!! simply magnificent drop!
