Technicially anyone who has ever logged into a public computer is anonymous.

Heh, I got an idea:

1. make him charge his friends for prints.

2. Split the profit with your son.

3. PROFIT!!

4. buy new stuff

Re: Can somebody please take a picture of the extruder?

There aren't connectors coming off of the H-1's extruder when you get it (if you purchased a kit). I got the kit and I assembled the extruder myself and added my own connectors (some crimp connectors). Why are you concerned with connectors to the printrboard? Those are just 4 pin Molex connector (p...
