Thermal Tweeter Fail Whale

in web platforms by Ian | 1 comment

Earlier today the Thermal Tweeter printer stopped working. Probably due to rough continuous abuse. A few replacements are on the way.

We dressed it up for a proper send off. There’s an eerie still in the lab now that it’s gone.

According to USTREAM there were 26,037 total views and 3,694 viewer hours. The statistics page is way sketchier than the last time we used USTREAM, no idea what the numbers mean this time.

Thank you so much for playing with the printer, your tweets made it an interesting project.

More Thermal Tweeter facts and figures.

Watch the paper pile grow.

A fitting last tweet would have been whale shaped, but it wasn’t working well enough to figure that out. “Thermal Tweeter fail whale” has to suffice.

A big apology to SparkFun, this probably isn’t the resounding endorsement you had in mind. Next time get in on it early before the Tweeter hoards trash our stuff.
