It arrived on Oct 2! I'm very pleased about the quick shipping time. But I'm currently very busy focusing nearly every free moment I have on Ludum Dare 47, so it may be a few days before I get it unpackaged and properly set up.

If I procrastinate long enough you might beat me to writing a mini-review

Not a weekend, but a new gadget.  I joined the Kickstarter for the Suunlu Filadryer S1.  It's a storage and filament drying solution all in one.  Why do you need to dry your filament?  Have you had a spool that worked well out of the box, but over time, you've had problems with it?  In some cases, this can be because the uncured material can absorb humidity.  How much really depends on your environment.  There are other ways of drying your filament, but there's a point in temperature where the filament will start to soften (the same thing that your hot end does), and I'm not adventurous enough to try to walk that line in something like an oven.

Today I got it in- I haven't had a chance to try it, but figured I'd post my unboxing videos.

I recently picked up a Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 ($500); one of the things that has surprised me the most was how comfortable it is to mark up pdf documents with the pen while reading.
This is one of the things I have struggled with the most when trying to move from reading physical print books to ebooks -- I miss marking up the margins and underlining/circling important parts with a red marker.
I did not expect to use the pen of this tablet at all, but I find it is quite satisfying -- even if it is only a psychological thing being able to mark up the document :)
