An PC for Nick....  whistle:





Some days I think the only thing keeping me from becoming homicidal is that the voices can't agree on which weapon would be the most fun.

I love the fact that the DOD is claiming that they have no interest in using Atlas in warefare....




Hey if you believe that I know a gentleman who can sell you lucky turnips...  whistle:

3D print one you say...?  rubschin:
Did you ever get that one?

The printer...?

I have parts of it... ::)

The main bit is still en-route from China to Brussels...  noooo:

So no, not really, nothing I can actually print with.   evil:

I've learned a lot from YouTube already though and have done some (fairly simple it has to be said) 3D design, slicing, etc.  :thumbsup:

Can we look forward to the all new 3D Virtual Pub?  No more lame text and 2D picture posts, everything has to be in full animated 3D.  Right in your face like

They ship free by courier... They ship via Brussels so I don't have to pay duty and VAT on it... not sure how they manage that...  rubschin:

Anyhooo.... I ordered the printer plus an optional glass printing bed and a roll of filament. I got the glass bed and filament in a couple of days but no printer. Apparently, they are en-route between China and Brussels... ::)

They did offer me the chance to cancel but I've asked them to chuck in some free stuff instead...

It is annoying 'cos I deliberately didn't order before Xmas as I thought it was sure to arrive when I was in the UK...  Banghead

Aha

I've bought Canadian booze via France so I didn't have to pay duty and VAT on it.  It's legal as its paid by the original importer from the EU - well it should be.  The UK apparently has a very sus record on that and as a result we owe £Bs in unpaid duty related EU contributions.

Last week there were signs of a clamp down on Chinese sites selling via Amazon and eBay  https://news.bloombergtax.com/daily-tax-report-international/uk-red-flags-tax-evading-sellers-to-amazon-ebay-alibaba-2

Aye... Perhaps if they didn't charge such ridiculously high rates of duty and VAT people wouldn't try and avoid paying them eh...? ::)
