nothing. all you need is a program that gives you other players IPs. And then you just do a reverse lookup with google.

Yeah... I wouldn't get too worried about it.

If you really wanted you could change your IP or use a proxy program like IP Sharkk.

reverse lookup?
and also if I change my ip can't rij find it again?
I downloaded antivirus software AVG and Malbytes just now. scanned comp is fine
Rijker has my personal information so can't he use my credit card or input a keylog into my computer?
He stated that all my IPS records were in his possession as well.

Well if he wants to steal your credit card and other information he is violating United States Law.

You're freaking out for no reason. If I wanted to, being a mod*, I could search your IP address and look up info on you too. No harm will be done. No he doesn't have remote access to your computer and no he wont get your credit card information.

Look: http://cqcounter.com/whois/

Go ahead and search someone's IP and you will get a decent amount of info on them.

*Mods and admins have your IP address, any site you visit has your IP address.

Also bear in mind that if your screen-name on battle.net (or other online play systems) is the same as on social networking sites like facebook/myspace, then people can correlate such things and get info on you easily.

Also, if they have a lot of time on their hands, they can search for your usename, find all your forum posts at different forums, and build a reasonably accurate profile on you using only information you have freely provided.

I wouldn't worry too much about this. Just be careful with what sort of things you let out about yourself on the internet.

People make threats like that all of the time, ive been worried about that for a while, but only a few people will actually follow through with it.

If you are really worried about it you can report him to the Internet Crime Complaint Center.

The Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) is a partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C), and the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA).

IC3's mission is to serve as a vehicle to receive, develop, and refer criminal complaints regarding the rapidly expanding arena of cyber crime. The IC3 gives the victims of cyber crime a convenient and easy-to-use reporting mechanism that alerts authorities of suspected criminal or civil violations. For law enforcement and regulatory agencies at the federal, state, local and international level, IC3 provides a central referral mechanism for complaints involving Internet related crimes.

    Crazy how much 3d printing has come in the last few years. Sad that it's not as easily modifiable though
  • Varine Varine:
    I bought an Ender 3 during the pandemic and tinkered with it all the time. Just bought a Sovol, not as easy. I'm trying to make it use a different nozzle because I have a fuck ton of Volcanos, and they use what is basically a modified volcano that is just a smidge longer, and almost every part on this thing needs to be redone to make it work
  • Varine Varine:
    Luckily I have a 3d printer for that, I guess. But it's ridiculous. The regular volcanos are 21mm, these Sovol versions are about 23.5mm
  • Varine Varine:
    So, 2.5mm longer. But the thing that measures the bed is about 1.5mm above the nozzle, so if I swap it with a volcano then I'm 1mm behind it. So cool, new bracket to swap that, but THEN the fan shroud to direct air at the part is ALSO going to be .5mm to low, and so I need to redo that, but by doing that it is a little bit off where it should be blowing and it's throwing it at the heating block instead of the part, and fuck man
  • Varine Varine:
    I didn't realize they designed this entire thing to NOT be modded. I would have just got a fucking Bambu if I knew that, the whole point was I could fuck with this. And no one else makes shit for Sovol so I have to go through them, and they have... interesting pricing models. So I have a new extruder altogether that I'm taking apart and going to just design a whole new one to use my nozzles. Dumb design.
  • Varine Varine:
    Can't just buy a new heatblock, you need to get a whole hotend - so block, heater cartridge, thermistor, heatbreak, and nozzle. And they put this fucking paste in there so I can't take the thermistor or cartridge out with any ease, that's 30 dollars. Or you can get the whole extrudor with the direct driver AND that heatblock for like 50, but you still can't get any of it to come apart
  • Varine Varine:
    Partsbuilt has individual parts I found but they're expensive. I think I can get bits swapped around and make this work with generic shit though

    I think we need to add something to the bottom of the front page that shows the Headline News forum that has a link to go to the News Forum Index so people can see there is more news.
