So, please contact him before working more on it. I'll be in the
space tomorrow evening working on it; if you're planning on working on
it before then, and need neil's #, please e-mail or call me directly.
I don't think I did a great job communicating these things after I
picked it up, or the large degree to which Neil's willing to help us
over phone, e-mail, and IRC.
Neil's high availability and interest in helping is the reason it
never occurred to me that we would need a project manager proper, and
also why I didn't effort to frame myself as one. It's also why even
though I've been out of the loop the past two weeks due to injury and
project launch at work, I didn't see the reprap initiative as being in
any kind of peril.
Having this context, does anyone still feel hesitant to work on the
project? If so, what outstanding questions or fears do you have?
My apologies for not being clearer earlier. Also, thank you everyone
for your work so far! I didn't mean to imply with my earlier e-mail
that anyone has done anything wrong. We just need to communicate with
How does everyone feel about meeting tomorrow at 8pm with Neil, after
the meeting's announcements and greetings wrap up?
Neil, will you be available by phone, skype, or IRC at that time?
Thank you again everyone for your work so far. I look forward to
helping more with the continuity and communication piece.

Yes. We did that on 7/10. Here's the quote from the wiki:
Took apart extruder assembly and hot end, melted out plastic.
(Expected to find glob of PLA from the day before. Only found
ABS from today.)
Not sure what you mean by "just the thermal". We cleaned all of the
plastic out of the barrel and the nozzle (by heating it with a torch).
There was only red ABS and no sign of any qhite PLA gooped up in there.
