CF & TMFS, horrible combination and more...

Well, after a good time waiting and trouble, I gave up currently with using a CF as a replacement for the HDD. Its installing everything perfectly, but it wont start to boot, so the whole thing is stuck at BIOS level, giving me errors and driving me nuts. Google is not a good help either...

I havent found a way around it, except for using a mobile CD-rom drive who does the trick fortunately. This also means that if you have a system pre-installed on a CD-rom it will work fine. Thank god Torvalds knew that any media is usable for a pc system.

My reprap is currently in repair, the Y-belt went loose (again) and I didnt had the time to repair it. More busy with school than using the reprap lately.

School is considering to buy a reprap for drilling PCB's quickly and fast. Anyone got experience with it, and some howto guide? I am thinking about drilling holes & lanes, and maybe silkscreening it too (with a finepoint marker). Since I dont know python, it will be very hard for me to write some code for it. I hate to get my hands dirty in toxic material ;)

I also noted that my postings are listed on the great wall of reprap related blogs. Good to know for when I am posting more...
