Technically, I *am* root for the home team. Weird, huh?

it's like a baby monitor for gadgets

I'm back, blogging something, at least:

I've been messing around with new firmware on the 3D printer (Makerbot), and have got it working pretty well.

Prints sometimes take a few hours, though, and I don't feel like sitting around in a loud room, so I set up something so I can watch the thing from afar, and know when it messes up (the parts pop off the platform, and move around) and starts printing a "sasquatch nest."

I'm using this software on my iPhone and iPad, and a "gorillapod" tentacle-tripod thing to hold the iPhone in place, while it "videoconferences" with my iPad from the other room.
