Technical questions of the week:

How does the world handle getting an RP system to start up about 2am while
you are home tucked into bed?

 How much progress has been made getting RP systems more push button?
Setting build start times, automatic record keeping and reports( like the
ones on fax machines) , automatic warning of system problems, etc.

 How does the small weaker users manage materials or vats that weigh a ton
when forklifts don't fit? I know I could hire a grad student for muscles
not brains but that is not cost effective.

We users have always asked 3D for the moon but I have never heard any other
RP system user publicly ask for anything. Why?

 Im in the RP- buisness for some years now and would be glad if wecould
use this mailing list for more professional Information. The rp-ml is made
for rp-insider and in this way we could discuss the problems in a good
way. It could be used for a real "direct input" to developers in this

I am sure that Andre and group had this in mind when the mail list started
but still most folks listen rather than contribute. Or get angry and
attack over what is said. If I did not have very THICK skin from years of
abuse I wonder how long I would have stayed on this list. I now heckle
folks to get them to think and consider other possibilities and people.

Oh well business as usual.....unless you care to answer the above questions
to the entire group or contribute your own questions and solutions.


Opinions, suggestions, and other controversial matter VOID where prohibited.
