My Assault on Stuff & What I'm Doing Next

My recent war that I've been waging has been against stuff. For a while (and by that I mean since 7th grade), I've produced my own income and spent most of it on things from the internet. I've talked about this before so I won't bore you with the laundry lists of my posessions.

Then when I sold my house in North Austin, I was faced with the prospect of moving all that stuff. My most financially productive years were while I lived there, so I bought a ton of stuff. During that period of collection it never occurred to me that I would eventually move. My garage as well as one of the bedrooms in the house because warehouses for my things.

When I moved, I took a pretty extreme approach. I went through every item in the house and made a decision - either I needed it or not. If it was worth more than $50 or so I sold it. If it was worth less than that I put it in a bedroom. If it was worth less than $5-10 I donated it or threw it away. I posted my address on craigslist and let people go into the bedroom and take all that they wanted. Within a few hours the bulk of my stuff was taken away.

Why Are 3d Printers a Big Deal and Are They Dangerous?

On The Geek Speak

3D Printing. Sounds intriguing and everyone seems to be talking about it.

It may seem like a simple idea – but, there is some work required to make the machine print in 3D.

For one, you need to know how to work CAD (computer-aided design) software. This allows the user to design a 3D object on their computer that is then sent to the 3D printer. Once the machine is sent the information, it begins printing the object in layers and in some cases a laser can be used to harden the material.

Once you get that down, just about anything can be printed and it is an amazing concept. 3D printers have so many uses for personal use and businesses alike!
