What, the thing people were trying to guess before?

Well... Technically, 2005 was the year of the SM, I believe. Later in the year, though.

What I was talking about was how this place must have been paradise before I came around in Feburary and started yelling at members and picking fights with Admins :D Or the Alexander/Conan Flame Wars of '06...

Good times. Goood times :)

Pft, you forgot Conan, that Bart dude and a few other people I think we eventually banned or had leave because we were too this or that for them and they were so great and all :rolleyes:

LP - This is true, but I'm just as likely to IP ban you, simply because I'm bored :)

:rolleyes:

I don't see Conan around.

Pardon me, but on May 09 2007, is the archive supposed to say this?

Yeah that was t'kron. He was around almost from the beginning and he was a great person and friend. I actually met him in person when him and some other people came to Houston in around the year 2000. t'kron was the 2nd MVP of the Blizzard technical support forum and was the MVP Beta Tester of Starcraft. A fantastic guy. A wonderful Administrator. He is missed greatly but there are very few still here that would have remembered him. It was just that long ago.

Yea, I saw him on the memberlist or something.

I think he was like 60. And yea, he had a health condition so he couldn't stay at the forums anymore.

===============================

Really, I haven't been on these forums for a while. I wouldn't even be on forums if not for m'n'm shutting down for a while thus redirecting you to a forum. That's where it all started for me. Then I came here after I got interested in the world editor.

I've only been here for 5 months or anything. Compared to all of youz people, I feel like a n00b. :eek:

I wonder...did tsbhelper leave for personal reasons or because the small bussiness forum was closed down?

    Hmm, how do I change my signature?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Signatures can be edit in your account profile. As for the old stuffs, I'm thinking it's because Blizzard is now under Microsoft, and because of Microsoft Xbox going the way it is, it's dreadful.

    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

    Heard Houston got hit pretty bad by storms last night. Hope all is well with TH.

    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. Do you guys see what I am saying, lets say you read all the articles on the front page and you get to the end and it just ends, no kind of link for MOAR!
