Do Cartwheels, Feed People

Rotational Hydroponics. It's an idea that's been around mostly unknown for the last decade, and has the potential to revolutionise* the way we grow food.
*Pun intended.
MS-Paint Art by me. :P
Essentially, by rotating plants plants around a source of light, you can manipulate the way they grow by the combination of heliotropism and geotropism.

Bootstrapping Support

Thanks again to more advice from the regulars of the RepRap IRC channel, I've managed to greatly improve my print accuracy by improving the firmware I'm using, and finally allow myself to leave the printer alone to do its job by getting a filament spool mounted where it can spin freely, instead of me having to keep turning the thing over.

Better Settings

This was the last print I've done so far, using up the last of my couple metres of testing filament, and just in time too; the settings are just about right now.

The parts I needed to change, for others' reference, was to have the 'Feed Rate' and 'Flow Rate' equal in the 'Speed' tab of SkeinForge 40.
