I've been wanting to get something for myself but haven't been able to decide.

The thing about a 3D printer is that I live next to a train track, so I don't want to get one that I don't know either has short print times or is resilient to minor tremors. I was thinking I could get an Arduino with an accelerometer to automatically pause it, which would be a fun project, but I also don't know if it would do any good.

Also I set the poll duration to a really long time but I don't know what to do with it. I doubt anyone ever scrolls more than a couple hours back down their timeline. I don't want to boost it because it's not really important. I guess I could reply to it with lightly useful additions at various times of day to get people's attention without being too obnoxious.
