A slight variation on the theme: What if Google returns nothin?
My Better Half needed a recipe for cookies she wanted to make for Thanksgiving. So she Googled "cookies". And you probably guessed it: Google returns a ton of sites, many of them dealing with browser cookies. She clicked on one and you probably guessed it again: She landed on a malicious site that did something to break Google. Whatever she Googled after that, Google returned zero - nada - nothing.
I'm the family IT guy, so she: "Google is broken! Please come fix it! "
A virus scan returned nothing so I took the easy way out: I returned her systems drive to a Macrium image that I fortunately took a week or so ago. Then Google worked 100%
So she did it again. (My stupid fault: I did not explain to her what happened. ) She Googled cookies again, landed on the same site with the same result!
Once again I re-imaged her machine and this time told her: "Don't Google "cookies", Google "vanilla cookies" or "sugar cookies" ". And that cured the problem. Good ole Macrium!
I'm printing a box to hold a temperature display on top of my 3D printer box, and for this - second - prototype I'm printing all three parts together: the face and sides, the base and back, and the display securing clip. This is just so I get a "matched set", and it'll all be ready to assemble together. It's three components in Fusion 360, so it's just a case of adding all three to a new design, spacing them out a little, and printing them.
Except ... I put the tiny mounting clip (8x13x3 mm) 2mm low in the design, and didn't notice - so Cura added a 2mm "foot" to the other components before it started printing ... and I didn't notice for a couple of hours.
In software terms, that's like a three hour processing run being thrown away because you didn't handle a null reference exception ... I'm an idiot.
