Fan mail and stuff

TL;DR - You could say it's real fan-mail.

UPDATE:

Due to1 happening, the fanmail system isn’t working as of now, Luckily the software for the printer was made open source, so I may set it up again.


Good news, you can now send me instant fan mail.

No, I’m not talking about using Tumblr’s fan mailing system. (Although I ended up creating a Tumblr blog just to relay my blog posts here to Tumblr if you’re into that sort of thing.)

One of the reasons why I did create a Tumblr was to use the fan mail feature. However, this feature is locked to Tumblr’s blogging system.

So I decided to create my own, which took me less than a day.

And it’s working really well. The best part is that I don’t need to be sitting on my computer all the time (animating) Surfing through tens of thousands of fan mail sent to my door.


(If you’re thinking why the hell would you print out fan mail from the internet in the first place?)

This.

I probably would not have that much fan mail anyway, so I’m counting on you not to overwhelm my printer1.

  1. I’m not using just any old printer, I’m using a Little Printer, the company that made them have shut down unfortunately. You can see what I did with it here.
