    @Jerware:  Do you have any drafts in your room? Once I aimed the fan away, I was able to print much bigger stuff.

    @TsunamiJuan: That's the first thing I did, but it still isn't as sticky as the metal on the Makerbot. I eventually found some good tape that worked though.

    @StephenWestervelt: They also have more days in between this time, so he could be taking some time with the family.

    @ashoe: @StephenWestervelt: @kazpa: @dpboom: @jmacduff: @tommyp_33: It's fixed. YouTube didn't publish it at the right time, which is odd.

    @SamB:That sounds like a job that I would have loved 10 years ago :)

    And the new audio is up. I'll repost the YouTube link as soon as it's uploaded. Sorry for the hassle guys.

    @Hiluxtaco: I also don't like having a phone or something banging around against my leg. It's uncomfortable and annoys me.

    @wvc: A family member emailed me the first video on the list, then I started down the recommended videos hole until I realized there were dozens of these things.

    @Lufferov: The difference is that people who serve food in the US typically make less than minimum wage. It's insane that that's still legal, but that's the way it is. I'm not going to fuck over the person on the wrong end of a dumb law just to make a point about injustice. And many restaurants that actually pay their staff enough have tip shares, where most everyone in the establishment gets a cut of all the tips.

    The music on these is amazing.

    @behre: When I'm running and get sweaty, I chuck the phone across the street. When I'm just walking down the street wearing jeans, a pocket works great.

    @Andy Cohen: If there's a tip jar out, I usually chuck in a buck. For coffee, I don't tip at serve yourself establishments if I'm not also getting food. If I get something that requires labor, like an espresso beverage or anything with steamed milk, I usually tip pretty well. If I'm just buying a bag of beans at a coffee shop, I usually don't tip.

    @pjz: I wondered that, but I assume he's just using the tools he knows how to use. I try not to Monday morning QB folks who are doing this kind of stuff though.

    @stoph: Breville makes a bunch of really high quality, mid-range priced machines that they only sell in Australia because they're 220V machines (or something).

    @tplatt: It's one of those things that everyone does differently. FWIW, I stopped making espresso drinks at home ages ago. Maintenance on the machine is a pain in the ass, the results were really uneven, and it was a pain to make milk drinks on my single boiler machine, so I switched to brewed coffee.
