Federation Space was my introduction to the Starfleet Battle universe. My original set was partially lost between the 1980ish purchase date and today. E23 is the best service for old school gamers.

xPud is a nice little OS. But it has an issue with hidden ssid’s.
Actually, there is nothing wrong with the OS, it’s all you. No seriously, I mean it. In xPud, you are a super user all the time. That means the normal sudo iwconfig “fails”.
What true linux user runs in super user all the time? Well, you are with xPud.
What linux user radiates their ssid? No one, and with this information you won’t have to either.
So the correct usage of iwconfig for getting connected a hidden ssid is:
iwconfig wlan0 essid “insertnamehere” key “insertpasswordhere”

Cubify is a simple 3D printer with software called Invent.
I will review the software and printer shortly, but first I want to share some troubleshooting tips.
If you stumble across this error message:
"Oh noes!! Cubify Invent fall down go boom"
It is time to update your video drivers. This error is remarkably un-descriptive so you will have to take my word for it.
This error bit me on a computer that was downgraded from Windows 7 to XP. (Who the heck does that?)

In Windows, running a disk check can clear up many problems. Many small glitches can be cleared up with the chkdsk command.
Setting it up in the command prompt is easy, but counter intuitive. Open the Command Prompt by clicking the windows Icon and typing cmd and enter in the box.
Now type chkdsk /f C:
Windows does the usual thing and tells you can't do that here.
Type in y for yes and then exit the Command Prompt.
Now, reboot the machine and wait for all the checks to run. The normal "chkdsk C:" merely scans a disk, "chkdsk /f C:" scans and fixes problems, so you may be waiting awhile. Hopefully, it is worth it.
