What is Making?

If anyone asks you what SW Makers or makers in general do, take them to this article from Make,

http://makezine.com/2014/07/07/slidesho ... barcelona/

There are some great examples of "making" there. not just the typical electronics but some crafty stuff as well.

I had to do the tweeter holder 3 times before I managed to get something worth keeping. I assume the led bar is for a work light? I'm using a torch at the ...

Re: My Felix is on the way.

So after 3 nights of building on and off, I've almost finished putting it all together. :?

Getting exciting now, just the last of the wiring to do tomorrow, the calibrating it and I might even get to print something... :P

Re: forum speelchecker

Which browser are you using?

I do most of my posting in Safari in the Mac and on the iPad, so autocorrect "fixes" the typos.

A quick google didn't show up a mod to spell check posts.
