Reply: Over 40 but since I was stuck in a cult during my early life (I was born into it kind of, one parent in one not) you can kind of subtract about 15 years of development economically, socially, (careerwise subtract 20) etc. plus people say I look mid or early 30's. It can be kind of confusing talking to me as you see a middle aged man except minus the 2 cars, career, 401k, college degree, social and romantic experience and all the fun you had in college etc., all of that stuff I never got to have so maybe you ask yourself why is this guy talking like he is in his late 20's?
My voice distorts very easy so that is why I sound funny on tape. Just the slightest error (or lack of quality) in sound recording and I sound weird I guess that is why I can do a few cartoon voices.
I've never had a career and pretty much been on my own since I was 16. Graduating machinist school in December, being able to go to school on the feds expense, I really feel I deserved it since I've been putting into the system since I was 16 well actually I was working in the family business half the time as a kid so...
I helped that school a lot, reorganized their tool crib (took a week), went through all the Mastercam tutorial booklets, taught others how to use Mastercharge-I-mean-cam and I figured out how to operate and send g-code files to the old fadal vertical mill that no one was using bringing the schools operational mills to 2. I made plaques for many of the faculty there, the students and even the principal and my teacher using Mastercam.
I'm trying to reverse/halt/make up for as much of that early life that the cult took from me by spending a portion of my paychecks at lef.org on various anti aging stuff plus It pretty much teaches me everything I need to know to avoid getting tricked by the medical industry and keep myself young.
I'm not in to poodles, it's the gay landlords dog but she always comes up with that little "I'm so small and hungwy look" and tries to get me to stare into her eyes it's really quite funny. While all the other dogs are running around barking and bouncing off of me or getting in my way or causing mischief she just waits until they are all gone and quiety comes over and puts her 2 front legs on me and just stares at me like she is trying to hypnotize me. She's like the size of a 32 ouncer. Like a little Paris Hilton purse dog.
*I'm really getting frustrated with this FTDI USB driver error. I don't need this right now I need it to work. I want to get going making stuff and being creative and learning from you more experienced guys.
I've signed up to the mach3 forums and I will post a thread in the smooth stepper subforum to see if someone can help me.
Just to clarify - cnc4pc did initially send me the wrong smooth stepper but when I told them that they immediately sent me the correct one and gave me some time to return the mistaken one. They were very quick in fixing the error.
