Hi gang --

So we had a better night tonight:

1) I brought in a temporary power supply for the Printrbot Simple. It worked; the printer appears to be OK after last night's power supply failure. So now all we need to do is get a better power supply to replace my temporary loaner. I will see what I can find. If you happen to have a 12 Volt 5 Amp "switching" power supply in a sealed plastic case (NOT like the power supply from an old PC), please let me know!

2) Sam came in and he and Natalie cleaned off much of the glue stick from the Printrbot LC. There is still some glue left. I have encouraged Sam to write up his experience so that we all learn from it. Thanks also to Mick for his earlier email about glue sticks and printers.

Braden and I will be demonstrating the Printrbot Simple at LUGOD on Monday evening. We talked it over tonight and I agreed to temporarily take the Printrbot Simple out of the space for the weekend and return it after Monday night's presentation. We hope this won't inconvenience anybody -- please let me know -- it is simply that we want to make sure that the printer is available and working for the presentation. I am also taking a spool of PLA, some sample printed objects, a 2.5 mm Allen wrench, and some tweezers.

The presentation will be at 7 pm in the Blanchard Room on Monday night. Hope to see some of you there!
