Love it! And I especially loved where he showed my Win32DiskImager program. I love seeing my program put to good use.

Really? Nice!

I'd really love to remotely track what my UM2 is doing

With two more printers in the works, looks like I will need a few more Pi's...or can they do more than one printer?

I see OctoPi has Cura 15.04, how would you get 2.6 to work with it?

You can send it gcode directly. The reason cura engine is there, is so that you can send it stl files to slice.

I inquired on the Ultimaker forum about it as well. I think simply uploading the 2.6.1 gcode to Octo works best, allow OctoPi to do it's monitoring but not used for the slicing process.

Ordered a Raspberry Pi Starter kit from Amazon today, $69. Look forward to trying out OctoPi!

Oh geez....I should have recorded how unimpressed I am with this GoPro Hero Session! My laptop webcamera does better resolution

I tried so GoPro a few years ago I wanted to try them to record some sailing, I tested them at home and they would take over 1 hour to charge for 30 minutes of recording and the batteries got far to hot for my liking, almost too hot to touch, so I sent them back.

They lowered the price to $149 and the quality is really bad. Maybe outside in bright sunshine is ok but it's a really poor attempt at a budget action camera

Which GoPro model are you referring to? I have the Hero 2, and a few friends have the Hero 3. I've never had an issue with picture quality (did have a fish-eye effect until I changed the case for the revised version). I've taken lots of video above and below the water (scuba diving in the Caribbean - spectacular). Granted, I haven't tried using it to record printing (I have cheap webcams and an endoscope for that).
