There has been a myth circulating for years that one of the presenters of 1970s RTE children's series Bosco died of AIDS.
Its complete shite actually. In fack the presenter is alive and well and still acting. Its incredible the prejudice against gay men and people with HIV that a man whose sexuality was not a major secret was assumed to have been consumed by the "gay plague." In fact he just a year or two ago did an excellent series of drag mimics of a major female politician and even the Taoiseach's now ex-mistress!
I heard that Dublin Meat Company, a large butcher located a short walk from home was now doing healthy meals for those of us who like working out, and watch what we eat, so I decided to drop by and try out some of their ready to go meals.
Unlike the mass-produced rubbish sold in bulk under brands such as WeightGainers and UniFat, the Fit Foot range is carefully curated to suit the eating habits of active people. In other words, its focused on good quality proteins, vegetables, healthy fats etc. A number of other butchers have paired up with Butchers to help put together good quick meals to go for customers, who spend so much time in the gym there isn't a lot of time to cook.
From what I could see a lot of the range was already semi if not fully cooked, though the instructions mostly seemed to include both oven and microwave instructions. With a full dish taking 25 minutes in the oven, this isn't too bad. Date ranges were decent enough. I bought at the weekend and everythi…
Another issue I occasionally come across in a large 3d print is the print suddenly losing grip and being swept off the bed by a quick moving delta head.
There are a number of reasons why prints don't "stick".
The first is simply the head not being level or z-axis wrong height, usually after changing a nozzle or hot end. Do this before any print. Also watch out to make sure any bed change is even. My delta is setup to do a "4 point" test, which means it checks the center, x, y and z axis. But if I've stuck a smaller blue 3m paper sticker (see later) the surface isn't even at the edges, so I allow a couple of mm extra for "give."
Blue paper is generally good for adherence on a bigger item, however, you need to cover the whole surface for a full print. Its expensive, so other options might be attractive.
Get a surface "sticker" for the hot bed. Mine ended up wrecked after one of my axes slipped due to a loose screw, and the nozzle g…
