    I just moved house, I didn't have any wireless or networking for a few days so i unplugged the power feed from the rumba.... Just got wireless and plugged it back in, I assumed I had done it right as I copied one of the pictures from the build guide....

    Well to cut a long story short of having to remove the base.... if you want to see what a fried raspberry pi looks like, it is like so:

    Lucky for me I have a fresh pi I can use to get octoprint back up and running, now where was that guide for having a separate power supply..... :-S

    Ouch... That looks a bit like the rumba where I inadvertently shorted a fan connection and melted the voltage selection jumper...

    @Sarah Nicholson I'm just glad its a small burn and I didn't set anything on fire or shock myself! thats always a sign of a success right :)

    Now I am working out how to mount a raspberry pi in a pibow coupe (from here) as I think it looks nicer, as always I am worried about the important things first haha :-D

    My K8400 has a pi mounted in one of those strapped to the side of it :)

    @Sarah Nicholson Ok mine is about to be cable tied to the base as a solution.... save me the trouble of almost breaking the memory card everytime I open the base. If i have more time/the motivation I might have just moved it outside of the base! But not today....That K8400 looks like a nice printer!
