At the request of reddit user nortbotics I’ve changed the licensing of all the big thingiverse projects I’ve released. Instead of Creative Commons – Attribution – Non-Commercial they are now Creative Commons – Attribution – Share-Alike. That means you can do what you like with the designs – even make and sell them! – but you have to tell people where you got the plans, and if you change the designs you have to use the same license for the new design.
A large part of the day was spent shopping for infrastructure upgrades. Shelves, shelves, and more shelves. This really excites me. When I started there were five or six items on a shelf. Then there were too many and I had to put product SKUs on everything. Now I have a product SKU and I’m going to have to add a physical address in the warehouse. What’s next, Kiva robots?
I’ve installed a live chat feature. It should appear in the bottom right of your PC screen. When we’re both at computers you can reach out to me and get an immediate response. Now it’s even easier to tell me what you’ve got on your mind.
Hong Kong Delays
I have received confirmation from our HK suppliers that the big orders I am waiting on were shipped sunday evening (vancouver time). They should be here soon, at which point my postal carrier might just have a small heart attack or hernia trying to cart away all these orders.
On another good note, since my last post (yesterday?) four more Makelangelos have been turned on. I wonder who will be #700?
