What you need is to lay down a skirt, a thin line of plastic that surrounds your print. This gets the plastic flowing. There should be a setting in your slicer to turn this on. https://www.simplify3d.com/support/articles/rafts-skirts-and-brims/

If I were to guess, I'd say that the z axis home sensor switch is set too high (or too low depending on whether the bed, or the nozzle moves on the z axis).

3 things to check.

1. Is the nozzle getting hot enough for the type of filament you are using? Some have a higher melting point than others.

2. Is the filament in good condition? Old filament can get brittle keeping the gears from getting a good gr<snip>

But why should the artist get more? I am getting nothing extra, nor is the artist/producers doing any extra work. Why should it matter to them whether I go to Japan and by it myself or have a company buy it on my behalf? The only reason why I can see it<snip>

I don't see how importing CDs would keep the artist from getting any money, unless you mean money from the markup that is added. In reality, I think the artist would get more money as there is now a CD sale that wouldn't have occurred before as th<snip>

Good way to handle sprites?

JSon and XML are both good general file formats. XML is more powerful, but also more complicated. Either will require implementing a parser if the language doesn't include one. Not sure about PureBasic, but I know that Blitz Basic doesn't. If y<snip>

If I were in the market for a trailer, and lived in Alabama, I'd definitely buy one from him. It's probably one of the reasons why I prefer Android over iPhone. I don't expect it to be 100% absolute best, so I'm never disappointed with it<snip>

Not so much an incorrect pronunciation, but rather an old American pronunciation, something Doc Brown would have used in the 1950s.
