    If there seems to be a bug (or complicated issue), anons may ask you to compose an MWE (minimum working example).
    To create an MWE, try the following:
    1) start emacs with "emacs -q". This disables your init.
    2) try to reproduce your issue with as few settings changed and packages (manually) loaded as possible.
    These steps ensure that other anons can replicate your problem if it's something more involved. Sometimes you even
    find the cause yourself this way, too!

/XMR/ Monero General

    Welcome to the Monero General, dedicated to the discussion of the world's leading decentralized P2P privacy     

    Monero is secure, low-fee, and fungible, meaning users can send XMR around the globe despite corrupt governments or 
    broken financial systems. Innovative privacy features such as Ring Signatures, Stealth Addresses, and Ring CT ensure 
    that Monero's blockchain is obfuscated -- In other words, the financial history of all Monero users is encrypted from  
    the prying eyes of adversaries on a public blockchain, with transactions being visible only by a user willingly 
    providing a view key.

    Monero has also improved upon the scaling downsides of current popular cryptos. To avoid high fees, dynamic block 
    size ensures that the size of the blocks will increase as the amount of transactions increases. Further, the mining 
    network algorithm RandomX establishes that anybody with a CPU can participate in mining, preventing the ASIC miner 
    domination that creates a high barrier of entry. Lastly, the mining network will be preserved by Tail Emission -- 
    instead of the block reward falling to zero like with Bitcoin, the block reward will gradually approach 0.6 XMR in 
    June 2022, where it will forever stay. This constant linear inflation means the inflation rate will asymptotically go 
    to zero while continuing to provide an incentive to miners to maintain the network.

    If you still have questions, feel free to ask and a MoneroChad will be with you shortly.

    >I need a part that does X and Y, with Z specifications. How can I find it?
    use digikey or mouser's parametric part search. Then purchase from one of the sellers listed above.

    >how do I get started with microcontrollers, where should I start?
    There is no defined starting point, grab a book and start reading or buy an arduino off ebay/amazon and start messing   
    around. There are a plethora of examples online to get started.

    SLA: Anycubic Photon, Elegoo Mars, Prusa SL1, Formlabs Form 3, Creality HALOT-ONE
    Instead of buying a new printer, you could consider building your own:

    >Where can I get free things to print?

    >What CAD software should I use?
    Variants of professional programs such as Solidworks (lol paying for software), Fusion360, Inventor, Onshape, and 
    AutoCAD may be free depending on your profession, level of piracy and definition of ''free''.
    Most anons use Fusion360, but some /g/oobers prefer OpenSCAD or FreeCAD. If you want to do free-forming and modeling, 
    Blender is alright. Also while not necessarily a design program, Meshmixer (free) can be extremely useful for 
    tweaking models to print.
