files sync and backup

hey andrew, ive been trying out the bittorrent sync program. its closed source but its pretty effective and has no limits on data. no cloud backup but can have multiple cpu's storing.

Thanks so much, thats a great suggestion!

Utilizing wiki better with bundled toolbar

Hey Andrew, just wanted to suggest checking out User_talk:Marcin#Activate_Extended_wiki_formatting_capabilities. It can help with readability and minimize saved edits because wiki users would preview their work in a more streamlined way. Cheers -Kunda (talk)

Fabrication Diagram Instructions

Hi, Did you ever do a tutorial on making fabrication diagrams? I'm trying to print some component diagrams that I drew in sketchup.

Funny you should ask, I was hoping to do that. Should have a spare hour to do it today per Marcins request. Andrew

Hi. I was wondering if you could do a quick video/writeup on scripts. I see you mentioning them but I don't have much idea of what they are/do other than that you write them on a computer. Thanks, Aidan Williamson (talk) 18:44, 29 April 2014 (CEST)

Hello, what kind of scripts do you mean? What do you want to do? Andrew Graham (talk)

I'm actually not really sure. You write about using scripts to upload images - maybe just a definition of scripts? What they are in the ecology of computers? Aidan Williamson (talk) 14:00, 30 April 2014 (CEST)

Thanks. The sketchup plugin sounds interesting. Took me ~30 mins the other day to lay a bunch of parts flat. How would a script interface with a program like sketchup? (I am familiar with only assembly language when it comes to programming so I might not understand jargon in the answer.) Aidan Williamson (talk) 01:16, 1 May 2014 (CEST)

i've never coded plugins for sketchup, so your on your own there unfortunately. If i had to do it i would use Houdini provided i was sure it could export the dxf format correctly. thats just because im familiar with it.
