    If you haven't met Tom Corson-Knowles yet, the author who made Bestseller Ranking Pro, I think you'll search his story inspiring. Like most authors who have been in the android game for years, the only signs of interest Tom got from publishers were rejection letters. After six years of trying to obtain a traditional publishing deal, he finally decided to self publish his first book on Kindle in February, 2012. It was a life-changing decision. Just twelve months after publishing that first book, he had his first $12,000+ month from Kindle ebook royalties alone! You can learn how in this video. These tactics have also helped him and his clients become #1 Amazon bestselling authors. If you're going to write, publish or promote a book this year, you need to see this:

    Sea of Rust: A Novel review [Book]  2018-1-29 18:0

    Sea of Rust is a sensational success. When I read through books, I sometimes tag a favorite quote or phrase. Afterwards, I have fun sharing a well-phrased zinger or a clever plot element that created me pause because it was a amazing representation of the story and might draw others in. In Sea of Rust, I marked up over a dozen pages just in the first is is not my typical read full of romance, but it is well worth the deviation. Sea of Rust holds insight and intrigue, life lessons and excitement, and a journey that changes everybot involved. The detail into the various types of robots is creative and profound. The story line is mesmerizing as each turn of happenings holds a potential climax only to be surpassed by an even greater turn of events. The alternation between the show and past is well-executed, and transitions are distinct and mold perfectly to make a attractive harmony. I just have to say that I want I had an RNG (Random Number Generation) to support me make decisions, but then again I'd be the one to question if the outcome really was the best decision and invalidate its e writing style results in an all consuming masterpiece. I read this book in a matter of hours. I started the first hundred pages over the course of a day, sneaking in a few pages each possibility I got and couldn't again bear the torture of that. The next day, I sat down and four hours and an unmade dinner later, finished the rest of the book. It's okay though because after reading a few of my notes to my husband that night over takeout, I had the book taken away from me and added to his nightstand. Sea of Rust was thought-provoking and a joy to read.

    Sea of Rust: A Novel review [Book]  2018-1-29 18:0

    Short Review : A surprisingly poignant and smart hash of post-apocalyptic, Western, and robo-sci-fi elements that explores ethics, philosophy, civilization, and the meaning of life. A special spin on several oftentimes overworked genres!Longer Review : This book really caught me by surprise. I found this through a Twitter re-tweet; upon checking out the author, I was shocked he only had 3 books, this one being the third, and the other 2 were fantasy novels with mixed reviews. So I downloaded a sample and fully expected to not buy the full ever, the story being told her is a unbelievable and swirling mix of thematic and genre elements. Much like "Red Rising", this is a book that brings together a whole slew of ideas and styles that, on a drafting board, sound ridiculous and shouldn't work ... and yet they do to unbelievable effect. The synopsis for this novel actually downplays what this book is like, and makes it sound like a tongue-in-cheek dark comedy about robots bumbling around in a spaghetti Western. The truth is that this novel is much more developed and nuanced than that. Basically, this takes put 30 years after the begin of the battle to slay all humans (a la Skynet in the Terminator franchise but much more interesting), and something like 10 years after the death of the latest human. Earth is now populated by a mix of OWIs (One Globe Intelligences, AKA, Skynet-style hive-minds) and "freeboots", or basically AIs inhabiting a single, self-contained humanoid robot. In the style of a Western, the OWIs basically represent "The Man" or "The Feds" from the East, and the freebots represent the ranchers and farmers that just wish to be left alone on the frontier. And related to how a lot of cowboys and gunslingers were Civil Battle veterans, all freeboots were veterans in the battle versus is is where the book really created itself a 5 star novel in my opinion. Just about every other robots-kill-all-humans sci-fi has the humans as the beleaguered amazing guys and the robots as the merciless, soulless poor guys. And while that's not necessarily NOT the case here, the author does a unbelievable job of slowly selling the reader on the idea of these freebots being more than just "anti-human". This is not a novel that involves robots doing a win lap, post-war. This is, in huge part, a story of robots attempting to figure out the "Now What?" that comes after winning a battle that was everything and destroyed everything. In this, the author excels at making you forget you're reading a story where literally every hero is a machine, a non-human entity. There's explorations of post-traumatic stress, of regret, of the meaning of life beyond battle and conflict, of art and philosophy, of the cost of winning, of the cost of living, of defining yourself. There's sequences where a hero describes using a flamethrower and killing people, of killing children, and yet even after this revelation, the author has made an environment in which you almost feel worse for the robot than for the kids ... almost. There's numerous flashbacks to before the battle and discussions of who a lot of of the robots were before they were scavengers and mercenaries and pathfinders and murderers; there's one particular chapter for the protagonist that sent a few shivers up my spine and really struck home, as it basically becomes a "Sophie's Choice" type of thing.And that kind of sums up a huge part of what this novel is about: robots making increasingly desperate and hopeless decisions in a globe that is falling apart under them. Again, I wish to emphasize here that, despite the fact that most of this is a direct effect of the robots' decision to begin a battle and end humans, you still feel sympathy for them because (other than the OWIs) they are not singular, monolithic and personality-free intelligences. These are actual characters, each with their own struggles, each trying to search meaning in a meaningless is brings me to the perfect opening, middle and ending chapters that succinctly embody the spirit of the novel (I'll leave off info of the final chapter because, obviously, it's somewhat spoilerish, and I'll hold the middle chapter vague for that plus it's best to read it with few preconceptions). The novel opens with our protagonist watching a sunset and discussing the green flash that sometimes happens right before the sun goes all the method below the horizon (this is a true thing, BTW). They discuss it as being a sign of the magic in the world, but [email protected]#$%! off as there being no magic left. And that perfectly sets the tone for the novel. As things progress, and characters comes and go, and flashbacks provide the occasional interlude, the reader is constantly reminded, with subtle intelligence, that things are the method they are because there is no magic left in the world. And that's not meant to be a easy proclamation that's thrown aside to discover other ideas; instead, each event, each flashback, each discussion between characters, is essentially an exploration of HOW and WHY the magic has left the world. The author excelled at this, and damn near perfectly captured this concept from every angle. We eventually search out through a mid-novel interlude where this idea of the magic in the green flash at sunset came from, and then, to tie everything together, the novel ends with a sunset and a green flash in a method that, well, was excellent and damn near created me spill a MMARY: This is a amazing book. Even for people that don't read hardcore sci-fi, or shy away from the kind of sci-fi with robots and lasers and plasma and spaceships, this is an simple but smart and emotional novel. Don't think of this as a SCI-FI! but think of it as a Western ... with robots ... and no humans ... and figuring out the meaning of life at the edge of the globe and the end of civilization.

    Sea of Rust: A Novel review [Book]  2018-1-29 18:0

    Sea of Rust by C. Robert Cargill is a highly recommended post-apocalyptic robot western."The one truth you need to know about the end of a machine is that the closer they are to death, the more they act like people. And you could never trust people."Human kind is now extinct and robots rule the world. Most of the globe is controlled by VIRGIL and CISSUS, the two competing hive-minded OWIs (or One Globe Intelligence). The OWIs are large mainframes where the memory of millions of robots has been uploaded, leaving behind thoughtless faucets who do the bidding of the OWI who controls them - and also controls the manufacturing of replacement parts. Not all robots are willing to cede their individuality. Those who don't let their memory to be downloaded are outcasts, rogues, who mostly wander the Sea of Rust, looking for e Sea of Rust is a two-hundred-mile stretch of desert located in what was once the Michigan and Ohio. This is where the first strike happened during the war, It is where millions fried, burned from the inside out, their circuitry melted, useless, their drives wiped in the span of a breath. Now it is nothing more than a graveyard where machines go to die. A caregiver robot who goes by the name Brittle is a scavenger robot who wanders in the Sea of Rust, trying to hold her body and mind functional. Brittle is the narrator of the e engaging plot, when in the present, is all fast-paced action and close calls. However, in-between the action scenes, are chapters detailing the history of the robots and what lead up to the battle with humans. While the necessity of the history becomes clear, these chapters also slow down the pace of the novel. The action scenes are cinematic, tense, and action-packed - then time for a history lesson. I'm unsure if this necessary background info would have been less distracting to me if it was shared in a couple chapters of backstory or in one section of the novel and then back to the action. Or maybe begin with a nameless narrator telling us about what lead to the battle and the extension of humans. (I could hear a narrator giving us the background in a film ver of this.) It seems, after the fact, that I would have liked that better. Also I'm unsure about robots identifying with a gender. Brittle is female, Mercer is male. Uh, they are robots - why do they need a gender or even keep onto that concept with no humans around?Disclosure: My review copy was courtesy of HarperCollins.

    Sea of Rust: A Novel review [Book]  2018-1-29 18:0

    The greater setting and its over-arching plot are engaging and well described, amazing enough to earn my two stars. But for me, the book became tiresome and needed fast reading to obtain through. After a promising and engaging beginning, the story just slowly and steadily ran out of gas (like some of the Bots in question). My three largest issues with the book: First, the latest half devolves into an extended chase that borrows heavily from "Mad Max" films without adding much to the interesting "set up" of the first half. Second, and more wearing, the dialogue among the Bots, especially in this part of the book, is forced and contrived, hopelessly "hip" in tone and ultimately, tedious and simply unbelievable. It reminded me of the stereotypical banter often heard among GIs or cowboys in lesser movies. I'm afraid the author hasn't the "gift of gab." Third, there is too much verbal "padding" to obtain this book (in hardback) to about 360 pages, and this is most acutely felt in the aforementioned wearisome dialogue. A gifted rather than a merely competant writer would have written a much better book.

    Sea of Rust: A Novel review [Book]  2018-1-29 18:0

    I’ll divide this review into two sections, a spoiler-free initial review and a spoilery analysis dissecting the story’s strengths, weaknesses, and other whatnot.~The spoiler-lite review~To varying degrees, I've enjoyed each of C. Robert Cargill's books, each more so than the last. Queen of the Dark Things (3.5/5 stars) was an improvement over Dreams and Shadows (3/5 stars) and Sea of Rust here is a vast improvement over that book. Not only that, but the prose is also improving from book to book, as is the dialogue (though as it specifically pertains to SoR's characters, I'll obtain to that in the analysis) and the plotting and characterization are much, much better handled than his previous two yeah, the book's better than his latest two.About this book: A Sci-fi post-apocalyptic Western where Humanity kicked the bucket by method of the bucket kicking them into extinction. No people. Main character’s a hard, haunted scavenger robot by the name of Brittle, amazing with a gun, even handier with a flame thrower, and this story is about finding who they are in the aftermath of the Fall of Man as fellow AI turn on each other and war for what’s left in the former American rust belt called the Sea of Rust, one of the latest vestiges of freebots.I really liked it. I grade it somewhere between 3.75-4/5 stars. Enough to really like it but not enough to love it. I think it has some beautiful distracting faults but otherwise it’s a beautiful effective and well place together story that I had a amazing time reading. Fans of action and sci-fi, especially those with an apocalyptic twist, are gonna really dig the hell out of this. At the rate he's improving, I can't wait for Cargill's next book.~The spoilery stuff~[WHAT I LOVED:-The pacing. As Cargill's improved as a writer, so have his strengths it seems, and pacing has been one of his strengths since D&S. This book moves at a clic and when it's in the moment it keeps you enthralled. I read its 360+ pages in a day.-The fact that all the humans are dead. One thing that makes SoR stand out a bit is that too a lot of post-apocalyptic stories of this ilk always have that thread of whether the humans are all dead or whether any hope for humanity lingers. Here? It's a tired cliche kicked like a rusty can to the curb. They died out years ago and stayed that way. No human blips on the radar. IT'S REALLY POST-APOCALYPSE. Book gets lots of gift points for not deviating.-The opening. Powerful hero items and an perfect display of Cargill's ability to transport you. Unlike the exposition dump chapters I'll delve into later, the worldbuilding is immediate and apparent in a method that doesn't call attention to itself too much and feels organic.-The second-to-last chapter. I’m a sucker for hero oriented items and this should have ended the book. It’s powerful and a amazing bookend to the opening chapter. What follows isn’t as good, but this chapter’s a amazing resolution to the book’s main conflicts and a nice showcase of the middle ground our main hero Brittle finds.[WHAT I LIKED:-The prose. Flows simple and isn't flowery in the slightest. Keeps you in the story and commands your attention to where Cargill needs it to be.-Brittle, our protagonist. I love a good, grey, flawed protagonist. Brittle's got a history and they're caught between daring to hope and being nihilistic from beginning to end, some of which you can read in the synopsis, some you can read above and in other reviews. I won’t delve into it too much, because I consider it the meat of the book, but suffice it to say, I like this character.-Mercer, our protagonist’s foil. What a prick. I liked him quite a bit. Handy with a sniper rifle, but his shades of grey paint a very powerful hero for Brittle to go up versus in more ways than one.-The Supporting Characters. They are well-realized for the most part and Cargill does enough to create each hero stand out. Dialogue aside, amazing as it is, each character, how they act, react, and look at the world, especially compared to Brittle, is well done. I in particular liked Murka and his random comments about Commies and the Gipper.-No one feels safe and no one is safe. It feels like anybody could bite it at any time. Characters obtain hurt, they obtain maimed, they bite it almost indiscriminately. It rocks.-The Sea of Rust itself. A very well-realized world, that in a intelligent decision to lend the story further uniqueness, is spun off from the American Rust Belt. I dig the hell out of it when it is itself and not aping other things.[WHAT I DIDN'T CARE FOR/HAVE MIXED FEELINGS ABOUT:-Brittle apparently being a female robot. Her hero is so masculine in every method that when it's brought up she's feminine 50 or so pages into the book, I did a double take (didn't match what Cargill had already fully developed in my head, which was more masculine-neutral, being a robot and all). Every time it was brought up after that, I rolled my eyes. I don't buy it. At all. Felt like a tacked-on trait to create the hero more sympathetic. Every other hero feels naturally themselves, but when it comes to this trait and how Cargill then goes about pointing it out continuously at a certain point, it feels forced and I roll my eyes.-The Dialogue. These characters, well characterized though they may be, sound like they're wearing spurs and ten gallon hats in Texas, Cargill's stomping grounds. They are hardly differentiated in speech patterns and phrases to sound like they’re from the Midwest, Fresh York, Space, what have you, yet alone robots from those areas. Thing is, it's amazing dialogue, though. It just strains credulity coming from machines of varied backgrounds. So while I was able to overlook it, I couldn't entirely obtain past it.-The philosophizing. I dug the hell out of including it in the book, but found it misplaced here and there. Some characters, it enriches them, others, eh...-The action scenes. Some are better than others and some have better punctuated beats than others. Thing is, it gets repetitive a amazing portion of the time too, and at points feels like there’s writer-armor rather than hero action or unpredictability saving characters from doom. Prose-wise, they flow and are readable in the method a lot of action scenes in books aren’t. I didn’t skip through them or tune out waiting for the next genuine plot point to crop up. That’s what creating stakes where it seems like anybody could bite it does for the story. But, it gets repetitive hearing a lot of of the same descriptions again and again, sometimes in the same action stage as it progresses.-Mad Max-isms. I love Angry Max. It's great. But SoR calls attention to some of its inspiration by constantly recalling it (the Smokers are essentially Battle Rigs, the Cheshire King rules over his own similarly to Tina Turner and the Lord Humongous, and his fortress directly recalls the oil rig from The Street Warrior, etc.) and then essentially stopping to become a Angry Max movie, only with robots and without George Miller in the 3rd Act... Less is more here. NIKE, while it calls back to Bartertown from Beyond Thunderdome, is special in itself that the story doesn’t need to become Angry Max.-The villains. One of the strengths of Sea of Rust is that there is a varied selection of characters, especially among the immediate supporting cast, each with their own motivations. Some are grey, some are good, others complete scum, but with their reasons. When it comes to CISSUS and its facets, though, it’s largely one-note. They’re effectively described taking out whole cities and coordinating their simultaneous points of view, but in practice they’re often a bunch of stormtroopers, cannon fodder rather than the merciless, indiscriminate wave of hell they’re described as. Felt too easily beaten if you ask me, even if Brittle, Mercer, and others are battle-hardened fighters and capable versus each other and others.-The end chapter. I could honestly take it or leave it. It’s unnecessary because Brittle’s story is essentially done by then and the previous chapter would have wrapped up the book beautifully had that been the ending. The final chapter is instead just plot-after-the-plot with nothing remarkable about it, maybe to set up an unnecessary sequel about the war for globe domination. *Yawn* Brittle’s story was the one with stakes I was invested in and cared about, not the one about which mainframe controls the planet.[WHAT I DISLIKED:-The method machines take over. It sounds almost exactly like the origin story of the Machines in The Matrix (and related properties those films aped from) with a tad bit of SkyNet from Terminator thrown in for amazing measure in the form of the mainframe OWI (One Globe Intelligence) characters like CISSUS, GALILEO, TACITUS, or VIRGIL. The origin feels too much like a retread of related properties when the rest of the book does such a amazing job otherwise in worldbuilding. It wasn’t even all that important if you ask me, because I cared method more about Brittle’s role in the takeover than I did about the Robot Rights Struggles, the mainframe wars, how the battle went down historically, what have you. A lot of this info is in those friggin' exposition dumps of the 1st Act that feel largely irrelevant to the overall story, and thus could have been largely excised.-Dead giveaways of coming plot twists. *****SPOILER ALERTs for Cargill’s films and other books***** From what I’ve seen and read of Cargill’s writing, he doesn’t really know how to do subtler plants of plot twists. You can see them coming from a mile away because he doesn’t hide them or their foreshadowing well, be they having Ellison in Sinister look at drawings and somehow not putting two-and-two together that the kids are committing the murders despite *the kids literally being the culprits in the drawings* or here, having the characters see an oncoming threat while they’re in the middle of risky location and then say a spot nearby is a amazing put to scene an ambush… only to just paragraphs later reveal what’s really going re, the reveal of who the hero Rebekah really is does up the stakes, but Cargill's best plot twist is the reveal of Coyote as the Dingo in QotDT, and that largely works as a fluke in comparison there because Cargill doesn’t introduce the twist as foreshadowing so much as casually reveal it as an upping-the-stakes moment for the 3rd book in that series. Here, it takes some of the edge off the story, when as foreshadowing, the hero literally asks himself if he is an unwitting Judas and there are no red herrings to turn attention elsewhere. Give the audience some credit. When you do that, *especially as the exclamation point of a chapter*, and don’t place the work in to hide the twist, the twist falls flat.[WHAT I HATED:-The friggin exposition dumps. This was the largest issue of Cargill’s latest two books and while he utilizes it a small better here (effectively cutting it off for the most part at the end of the 1st Act roughly 120 pages in and incorporating its contents better in the story consequences-wise), it’s still aggravating being taken out of the story for an introduction and exposition on something that is about to be immediately addressed afterward. It’s not clever. It’s utilitarian and lazy. It’s one thing if it’s every now and then or better yet, a single chapter, but when it’s *every other chapter* for the entirety of the 1st act, and interrupts the story in the method it does, and gives the audience barely a kernel of relevant-to-the-story info that could’ve easily been learned otherwise, IT’S GOT TO e important info gleamed in those chapters could’ve been expositioned as part of the story, with the rest chop altogether. Maybe have a hero serve as just an exposition mouthpiece. Films and TV Shows do this all the time. It doesn’t call attention to itself if it’s done well (heck, Cargill does it here at the end of the 2nd Act about page 250!).I obtain that Cargill feels the need in those early chapters to have some sort of 'Meanwhile' chapter every other time in order to structure the book, but when you see that he doesn’t need it later on to advance the story it makes the issue all the more apparent.[ULTIMATELY:As I said above, it adds up to a book I really liked, but not one I could love. No worries, though. Cargill's a writer consistently improving at this as he goes along and I really look forward to the next book of his. He keeps it up, that next book's gonna propel him to the huge time.

    Sea of Rust: A Novel review [Book]  2018-1-29 18:0

    Sea of Rust – My Review“America wasn’@#$%! people,” said Murka, stepping toe-to-toe with Herbert. He was a amazing sight taller than the hulking mass of bulletproof steel standing in front of him. “America was a dream, son. A dream of what we could be. That any person, regardless of their birth, could rise above it all and achieve greatness. It was a dream that even the most lowly of us could stand up, fight, and even die for, if only to protect someone else’s chances for that greatness. That dream didn’t die with HumPop. It didn’t die when we tore down their world. It is the ashes from which our own globe arose, and it is still our dream.”First, I was excited to be able to read and review this book. Sea of Rust took me out of my comfort location into a story of a post-apocalyptic globe where only robots are trying their best to survive. Everything has been destroyed, even down to the latest bits of grass and animals. With the latest paragraphs of this book, it was a story I came to love and where I longed for a sequel right away to continue reading the saga.When the writing is so amazing that with nearly every page quotes from the book jump at you and create you reflect more deeply on the story – that’s when I know I will remember the book long after it sits on one of my bookcases. The above quote, from the Sea of Rust, is the underlying theme of Cargill’s sci-fi novel. The quote indicates the wealth of emotion I felt reading about this post-apocalyptic ’s a story that reminds you of Angry Max, except this is robot vs. robot on an earth that has become barren due to the battles between man and robots. The battle still continues between robots and robots until the very end. Yes – there is even a dog named, Barkley who adds a soulful touch to this brilliantly written a of Rust follows the main hero of Brittle, a caregiver robot who’s survived versus all odds versus being uploaded to the artificial intelligence mainframe. As the story goes back and forth between reflections of the past to the present, you are taken on the journey how earth changed to a post-apocalyptic gill, vividly creates his characters of Brittle, Doc, Mercer, Rebekah, and even Two with the turn of every page. What makes us human? What makes us good? Can robots have one of either or both? Can a robot understand what freedom is or what the American dream is? It’s these underlying questions that carry this profound story.

    This book was beautiful awesome. I was worried it would be a mistake reading this right after another robot-centric book, but I'm satisfied to say it wasn't. This book imagines what might happen after a robopocalypse, after the humans are all dead and AI robots rule the world. The answer? Funnily enough, a second apocalypse.We follow Brittle, a Caregiver robot who fought in the robot-human battle and is now just trying to survive in the wasteland that followed. She makes her living scavenging robot parts and trading/selling them to others. Two mainframes (AI supercomputers?) are battling for dominance over the world. They wish all robots to upload their memories to the mainframe so they can be all knowing, and use that knowledge to take over the bots often come down with brain sickness, that is to say, their parts go bad, or they overheat, and if they cannot search replacement parts they go crazy, losing memories, hallucinating, etc.. Some wander out into the Madlands in the Sea of Rust and join up with the other crazy robots. Some upload themselves into one of the mainframes. The more I think about this book, the more complex it all e globe building here was rich. And though it was complex, the story was told effortlessly and wasn't difficult to follow. I read this over the course of two days. It was fast and had that unputdownable quality that created you just wish to hold e author gives his readers a lot to think about. The implications of AI, the definition of AI. What that might look like and what it means for the future. What is man's next logical step in the evolutionary chain? I found myself curiously conflicted throughout the book because on the one hand, I was rooting for Brittle all the way. She was fantastic. On the other hand, robots sort of murdered the human race... so... spite all that, the book also managed not to take itself too seriously. The angry robot calls himself the Chesire King. Brittle talks about being able to hear a human's "most tightly clenched silent farts". There were parts that created me laugh out loud and there were parts that created me wish to cry.I really, really loved this story. There were a couple of chapters that were kind of redundant (and I can't say more without spoilers) but that was the only thing holding it back from being a five star read. If there is a sequel, I'll probably pre-order is book releases officially on September 5th, and I would highly recommend it to any sci-fi fans, or readers who like post-apocalyptic, dystopian type novels. Thank you to Harper Voyager and Edelweiss for providing an eARC for me to review.

    Sea of Rust: A Novel review [Book]  2018-1-29 18:0

    Sea of Rust is more than a robot-induced, post-apocalyptic tale of humankind's folly and desire to be the creator instead of the created. Sea of Rust is about non-sentient beings evolving from programmed things to pseudo-sentient thinking things because even a robot will eventually rise versus the status of a slave or machine that can be terminated or turned off at the will of the creator. Even a robot will evolve and recognize that free will isn’t exclusively a human right. Even a robot with artificial intelligence will cease to be ittle is a caregiver robot that has seen and done a lot of horrific things to thrive and survive another day before, during, and after the war. She is fiercely protective of her living status and will do what it takes to hold her circuits humming, her core functioning, and her freedom ringing. And what about Murka? This hero will have you rolling on the floor laughing one min and shaking your head in disbelief the next.What I love most about Sea of Rust is the connection to Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. A creation will always be greater than the sum of its parts, and it will never remain static. How can it remain unchanging when you have brought it to life with your own hands and your own intelligence? But what happens when the thing you made breaks from your expectations and becomes smart and aware and demands more than you were ever willing to give? Ask Victor Frankenstein. And ask the human population (HumPop) in Sea of Rust. If they could, they would tell you that they went too a of Rust will frighten you and create you wonder if we have already gone too far. The author takes the concept of robots becoming too powerful, too thinking, and too everything to the next level and then blows it out of the water. This story isn’t about humans fighting a robotic uprising because that’s finished. That's over. The latest human standing has fallen. This story is about what comes next. The robots have moved up in the meal chain. But it's far from over because what species is ever content with the status quo? What comes next should scare the bejeezus out of om page one, you will not search a moment's rest. You are immediately swept up in Brittle's plight, her misery, her fate. Your robotic ride eventually pushes you down the rabbit hole, where everyone is as angry as a hatter, including you. Trust no one, even if they say, "trust me."

    Ahoy there me mateys! This book has been getting praise from me squad and know I know why. First of all it has the most beautifully evocative cover. And the story is unusual and compelling. This is a post-apocalyptic story of what happens when the battle between the humans and robots is over and the robots win. The respond is extremely surprising and fascinating and e protagonist, Brittle, is an amazing robot. She is [email protected]#$%, self-serving, clever, and just plain fun. She is a scavenger who finds parts that other robots need to survive. But robot politics are getting in the method of her survival. Plus there is the other robot that is out to destroy her.But while it is unbelievable to watch the globe unfold through Brittle's eyes and learn the history of the battle through Brittle's memories, it was the world-building that created this one rock. I adored the types of robots, how they were used, what became of them, what they chose to do with the globe when they were in control, etc. The robot philosophy was interesting. I also thought it was clever that sometimes Brittle seemed very human in tone and then I would be reminded by another element that she was a robot. I believe that this was due to the type of model she ere aren't too a lot of info above because I think all of me squad should experience this one for themselves. Just know that the writing is attractive and it was time well spent. I look forward to reading the author's other work.

    Sea of Rust: A Novel review [Book]  2018-1-29 18:0

    Sea of Rust is a post-apocalyptic robot novel. The initial setup is very related to Charlie Stross' Saturn's Children, except where Saturn's Kids is optimistic and expansive, Sea of Rust is pessimistic, gritty, and well, e idea is that after the robot uprising that wiped out humanity, what's left of the robots are split between multiple mainframe factions that are struggling to control the entire planet and all the independent robots that still haven't been brought under mainframe control. It's an entirely illogical setup, since most likely just a few hours of earlier sentience would make an insurmountable lead for one of the intelligence e narrative focuses on one independent robot and her find for spare parts. The style is that of a single-person competent viewpoint that alternates between historical exposition and "current" problem-solving. The entire narrative is well-written, with transparent prose and made-for-special-effects war scenes and a Hollywood-ready huge climax and it as deep as Saturn's Children? No. It's shallow Hollywood stuff. But it's simple to read and a excellent airplane novel, and at $1.99, priced appropriately. Mildly recommended.

    Kebinfen Tree Training Wires for Bonsai Tree, with Bonsai Wire Cutter - Size 1.0 mm/ 1.5 mm/ 2.0 mm (128 Feet Total), Anti-Corrosion and Rust Resistant review []  2020-1-18 2:19

    Nice quality wire and surprisingly amazing quality clippers. Knocking off a star because the clippers were in a plastic bag inside a plastic bag with the wires, which were also in their own plastic bag, which was all in a slightly thicker plastic bag. So much unnecessary trash that's now mine to dispose of and feel guilty about.

    It is not what you see in the image online! Uploaded what I got. The pliers are useless, they are so little I cannot keep them in my hand. The 1 mm green and black wires are useless. The 1.5 and 2 mm wires are very malleable and would not keep a small branch in place. You might be better off buying copper wire from a home improvement store.

    First off, I have no idea what I'm doing with this stuff, but I have so a lot of seedlings in the yard, that I figured it would be better than just ripping the out. So, instead, I'm putting cedars and maples into little plastic pots and playing around with them. So, hold that in ese are all really low gauge wires. Even the thickest struggles to hold the shape of a branch that's less than 1/4" in diameter. Doubling up does help. Otherwise, yeah, it's working fine. I do think I'll need some thicker wire, but that is certainly not because of any defects in this product. The wire cutters work fine on all the wires. They also work fine for some trimming, which is not what they're for. I would post photos, but I don't wish my bizarre work to reflect on the quality of the product. I mean, I have to hide my disaster project trees to hold my wife from throwing them mmary: The product is good. I'm just really poor at this hobby.

    I wired a couple of Ficus trees with this kit latest fall and here, in the spring, the trees are still alive and the branches seem to be trained like I wanted them. There was plenty of wire left over, too. I doubt I'll ever have to buy any again unless I begin a Bonsai nursery... which ain't happening.

    The wires are amazing quality and amazing amount. Plus it comes with a wire cutters which comes handy because I don't have to use regular size wire cutter. But depending your bonsai tree, I do recommend you check the size of wire.( Thick vsThin).

    The cutter handles have a textured rubber padding that makes them comfortable and slip resistant to use. Just started using this product so I do not know how simple the wires and cutter will be yet when I need to remove the wires from the bonzai tree. The only recommendation I have is that the coils of wire should be labelled for simple reference and for future use. But as of now, I am very satisfied with the cutters and the wire I have used.

    This product was great. Love all the various thicknesses of the wire. Please note that you can not use the wire cutters. You have to obtain separate bonsai wire cutters as the sharp hint of these utters could easily hurt your tree, still nice they included them though. overall I would recomend this product.

    Amazing set for the can obtain better, but this works fine unless you need a very thick/strong wire. You would need to order that as well, but it was no problem to me.

    Evapo-Rust GEL Rust Remover Removes Rust and Rust Stains from Most Surfaces, 8oz review []  2020-1-18 21:35

    The material/gel is very hard to work with; It's like a glob of goo (something?) that "keeps" its shape or rather springs back, as you war to spread the "gel". Makes it impossible to brush on a surface. I used a paper towel and that too proved to be a challenge.. I did a try spot on several items, old radiator + stair treads. The Gel did NOT remove the rust on either, but did turn both try locations black. I tried washing it off with no luck. I ended up using the sander - what a F'n mess! and even using a sander didn't remove all of the discoloration. DO NOT WASTE Your money.

    Evapo-Rust GEL Rust Remover Removes Rust and Rust Stains from Most Surfaces, 8oz review []  2020-1-18 21:35

    This is nothing like naval jelly consistency (which would be ideal, but whatever). It looks like Elmer's glue, but stays in a ball like a melted rubber glob. It will not spread with a [email protected]#$%!& just bounces back to it's original form so I left it in it's glob form on the metal overnight. It barely removed any rust. I then had to scrape it off and throw it away. Brake cleaner wouldn't even remove the hard white residue it left on the metal. This was just mild stamped steel I was using the product on, nothing ick with the liquid form of Evaporust, that does work.

    I love the Evapo-Rust Original liquid so much, I wanted to test this gel. The first one I received was so thick and jelly like it wouldn't even stick to metal. Maybe if it was totally dry heavily rusted it might, but I was sure this items had dried out. For instance you could NOT brush this stuff. They sent me another one free of charge. (Thanks for the GREAT customer service). Yet it was only a small bey=tter. No method to brush this items onto whatever you need to de-rust. Even with a putty knife it wasn't usable. I'm sure if you obtain it on there somehow, it would work.I'll test thinning it with some of the Original liquid product to see if I can salvage this stuff. I ended up using Naval Jelly on the rusty zone I couldn't remove and put in the liquid.

    Evapo-Rust GEL Rust Remover Removes Rust and Rust Stains from Most Surfaces, 8oz review []  2020-1-18 21:35

    I was very surprised to see a rubbery yellow goop come out of the bottle. Disappointing at best. The gel is more rubber like than liquid. I had no issue brushing it onto the engine block I was cleaning. Just had some flash rust on the outside and I figured this would be a amazing test. What a waste of time. The gel dried fairly quickly. The instructions state that the dried gel may need to be scrubbed with water and a soft brush. You need a stiff brush, brass or fine steel to remove it all. Yes the rust was removed but for the time and effort spent I would have simply wire brushed the zone with the same results. Yes, it took longer to remove the dried gel than it would have taken to wire brush the area. Maybe it works better on crusty rust. Nowhere near as amazing as the standard evapo-rust.

    I didn't see the negative reviews when I purchased this. I thought I saw a four-star rating, but I must have been thinking of the rating I saw on their liquid is items was strange to me, so I followed the directions exactly. By itself, it has removed no rust whatsoever.I might be old-fashioned in this regard, but if something doesn't actually remove rust by itself, it probably shouldn't be called a rust remover. I was expecting something that could be spread easily with a brush, as I think most people do when they hear the word "gel" (hair gel? Gel stain? Jello?). If you were born in the early 1980s, you might remember Gak. This items is identical in texture and consistency. It definitely will not fill crevices if you're doing something like a tool restoration, for example on a bit brace and such. I'm going to test their liquid product, and see if I fare any better with that.I'll be throwing this items in the trash.

    This items is thicc. More like your sick grand-grandpa's snot versus a clear [email protected]#$%! on ( a little nylon brush worked great), allow it sit for an hour or two, rinse and brush it icks to iron surfaces and gives a amazing surface for a self-etching is items is too thick to stick to fine polished surfaces, but it worked amazing on my rusty iron master cylinder before priming and painting.

    I’m not sure if I got a poor batch or if this is just how this product works but it was thick slime. It was a major ordeal trying to spread this out. It was horrible, even worse trying to obtain it off. I was test to remove a rust stain on a landscaping boulder. I think there must have been something wrong with the bottle I received, we I tried to apply it, it came out in one huge slimy lump. Horrible stuff! I will say it did remove about 40% of the rust but simply to difficult to use.

    For me Evaporust simply isn't potent enough. It would likely be okay for "spotting" rust spots on stainless or chrome plated parts. It just doesn't come close to what a 1:10 or 1:5 solution using phosphoric acid[85%]. I even tried wetting the paper towel with Evaporust and water over the gel to hold the gel hydrated. It has to remain hydrated long enough for the chemical reaction to take place.I wasnt able to determine how long it would have taken because I abandoned the product after an over night app failed to create the improvement I was looking for. There are several reasons why it may still work for someone else with a various situation. Especially if you are pouring the waste into a municipal sewer system.I chose phosphoric acid because it is one of the "better for the environment" organic acids. It can create a lot of phosphorus based usable compounds for metabolic process's of biology.

    The little bottle oozes the items out in clumps. You cannot [email protected]#$%! on without first doing a pizza dough like dance with the material... pulling and pushing it around... You end up wasting a lot of it...Like the other reviews say....Not a amazing medium for this purpose..I did test it on 3 wrenches I had and the results were so-so. I have never used the liquid, so I cannot say if this is as amazing as it gets or if it was because I had problem getting the gel to spread and fully cover the tools...I place them in a Stainless tray and using nitrile gloves, I worked the gel as best I could all over the wrenches, but I think the nature of the gel makes it so you don't obtain complete coverage.I'll test the liquid instead.

    One look at the picture posted by “dB” is all you need to know what you’re purchasing. My container of rubbery gel did remove rust but only on the dime sized zone that I could put it. The container is filled with one single lump of rubbery product and a little amount of liquid which can’t be mixed even with a power mixer. It’s more like bread dough in consistency and you need a pair of side cutters to separate enough to test and use this stuff. I’m sorry I wasted my money. I hope it (and a lot of other users) was just old because their liquid evapo-rust really works well. Buyer beware!

    Pickleball 5.0: A Journey from 2.0 to 5.0 review []  2020-1-8 19:7

    Pickleball 5.0 by Phil Dunmeyer In my experience with other sports (at the amateur level), coaches rarely have a comprehensive and nuanced view of the sport that examines mechanics and tactics from various points of view. The best coaches are cognizant of alternate tactics and are willing to discuss the pros, cons and situations for each. So, if the Pickleball instruction in your zone seems one-sided or is starting to repeat itself, then this is the book for you. The notes style format makes it simple reading to prepare for practice. The fact that it is a full length text lends to a lot more detail, which does a amazing job of gradually building on itself, compared to what you would obtain from a DVD or clinic. To give you an idea, it frequently presents the primary "paradigm" for what to normally do in a situation, but then goes on to talk about the times when various strategies are appropriate. For instance, it goes over the third shot drop in length for beginners, but later provides the three instances in which a hard drive would be more appropriate for your third shot. I was someone who used to argue with tennis players that the third shot must be soft. I'm actually reluctant to point this out to potential competitors out there, because this one idea immediately created a several points difference in most of my games.I don't agree with every statement in this book, but I consider it a amazing bible for playing the android game seriously. I started reading this as a young 3.5 player after having had a bit of coaching and watching a lot of YouTube videos. It might take some time for a beginner to work through but it has some amazing drills to learn from. One problem I did have in the beginning of the book is that the author says we all use the eastern grip in the quick sport of Pickleball. What he is referring to is the versatile continental or chopper grip, used so that we don't have to drastically change grips for various shots. Technically, the continental grip is in between the eastern forehand and eastern backhand grips. The commonly used term "shakehand grip" technically refers to the eastern forehand grip, which locations the index finger base knuckle on bevel #3 to stabilize the wrist in forehand strokes. Continental locations it on bevel #2 (my Selkirk paddle does have an an octagon handle). This may all seem academic, but it helped me in making microadjustments to my grip so that my wrist is stable on the forehand and backhand. Other comments.. the text and pictures on "forehand ready position" seem outdated.. everyone now seems to recommend a ready position somewhere in between 9 o'clock and 12 o'clock. This text also uses the term underspin to mean a little amount of topspin, while some instructors will actually mean backspin when they say underspin. All in all, if you were to only buy two resources, I'd obtain Pickleball 5.0 and Coach Mo's first DVD. Mo's Pickleball Clinics DVD with Gift Lessons DVD is more about proper technique (check that one out first), while this text has a lot of tactic and mental aspects of the game. It also has an 80-page section devoted to common errors in Pickleball, which is beautiful unique. Also for any organizers in the community, definitely read the chapter on Etiquette/Ethics. I played for about a year before realizing that it doesn't support anyone to just hit to the weaker enemy in begin play. Also I loved the suggestion to ask for permission before giving a player advice.

    Pickleball 5.0 is the most informative book on pickleball out there. I have purchased most of the instructional books and DVDs that have been published over the past five years by different PB instructors/experts and Pickleball 5.0 is by far the most complete instructional tutorial for anyone wanting to improve their game. Anyone wanting to begin playing PB should buy this book first because of the valuable info it provides to the reader. It will support you decide on equipment selection (i.e. differences in paddles) court etiquette, how to act properly on the court when you're playing, how to challenge a game,etc. There are so a lot of aspects of playing PB that are clearly explained in this book that no other writer has bothered to address in their publications that all PB player can benefit from. Pickleball 5.0 also provides the reader with informative drills that will improve anyone's skill level if they follow the instructions and practice, practice and more practice these drills. There is so much info in this book it is hard to write a proper review without feeling I have left something necessary out. Everyone (regardless of skill level) will search something of value after reading this book and well worth the price of the book. I have personally incorporated some of the info found in this book into my show practice time and have seen an immediate improvement in my skill level. As time goes on I hope to incorporate more drills and more info found in this book into my practice sessions in order to raise my skill level even higher. BUY IT YOU WON"T REGRET IT!!

    I have just received my copy of Phil Dunmyer's, "Pickleball 5.0" book. What an impressive document. While being a somewhat beginner (100 days on the court---in tournaments over 6 years) Coach Phil, has given me some ideas about techniques that I will immediately be able to incorporate in future competitions! It is the very best, an complete, treatment of the android game of pickleball---something for the 2.0, to 5.0+ player!!I highly recommend this comprehensive book for a beginner, a recreational player; or an advanced/elite skilled competitor!! I have not seen another book that begins to compare to Coach Phil's comprehensive treatment of the game. A must read for anyone playing the android game of pickleball:-!))

    I have read several books about pickleball. Most of them give you the standard basics, such as to just hit a easy serve, as deep as possible. Since amazing players will almost always return your serve, you really only need one nice loping serve deep into the court. That's what most books say, but not Phil Dunmeyer. He shows how to do ten serves. And five spins. And a ton of other information. As an info junky, I like that. He clearly knows what he is talking about. It also helps if you are brain dead or very old, since he repeats everything about twenty times. Really, toward the end of the book I just looked at the heading and skipped to the next one, having read that info several times already. This book could have been contained in half as a lot of pages, maybe fewer. But that's not a issue with content, only format. For content, this is the best book I have read about pickleball.

    Pickleball 5.0: A Journey from 2.0 to 5.0 review []  2020-1-8 19:7

    My husband Carl bought this book for improving his pickleball skills. He has been playing tennis for almost 40 years and used to play four times a week. But due to his knee pain that started in late January, he switched to pickleball in order to obtain the exercise he needs. The book covers every aspect of pickleball. It's comprehensive, and simple to follow. It is especially amazing for beginners who would like to learn pickleball and can search a practice partner to practice with, because it teaches both, instructor and student, how to teach/learn each type of shots. Even though Carl has only been playing for about five months, he is now playing with intermediate players on a regular basis. He thinks the book can also support him become an advanced player in not-too-distant future.

    As a middle school PE teacher, I’ve been wanting to add a Pickleball unit for a while but didn’t quite feel confident enough to “teach” it. This book has so a lot of ideas and “teaching moments” now I feel like an expert! More importantly, I have an organized and detailed plan for instruction with small hints the children will love...like placing empty pairs of shoes on the court in various positions to present them where to be fair, this book is written method above the level of Introductory PE (more like aspiring competition players or seriously competitive adult rec) but I still found so a lot of takeaways I can use and incorporate into my lessons it’s definitely worth it. Having a book on the shelf lets me tag it up and mark it for simple reference while teaching but I was pleasantly surprised the b&w paperback purchased through Amazon gave me a free Kindle ver too, as some of the diagrams and images are better in short, I got the detailed background knowledge I required to give me the confidence to implement an entirely fresh unit in one (albeit lengthy) book. I’ve taken entire semesters of college-level classes for some other sports and not felt as prepared, or excited, to teach it to others!

    I have been playing pickleball for 5 years and have read several books on how to become a better Pickleball player. I purchased the recent edition of Pickleball 5.0 after giving my first copy to a mate just learning the game. I have found this book to be my favorite " How to book.". I like how the book explains each topic clearly. When I wish to work on a particular part of my android game on a given day. I just look at the index, search the topic page and I have the info for that day's self support class. I recommend this book for beginners, improvers and advanced players. Pickleball 5.0 is a 5 star book.

    I agree wholeheartedly with a lot of of the other highly positive reviews. I thought they were engaging in hyperbole, but they're not. This book is truly the true deal and you will improve your android game immensely if you take the author's advice. At first I was place off by the overuse of all caps in so much of the book. But it dawned on me, whether the author meant it or not, I view his all caps now as him being my private coach and yes, yelling at me to really "get" his points. He doesn't mince words and he leaves no stone un-turned as far as how to absolutely become a amazing player (if you follow his advice). Buy this book now if you wish to obtain better at pickleball. I can't wait to practice his drills and place into practice much of has advice.

    Have not finished it yet, but it is very amazing and very thorough, so far. He lapses back and forth, rather randomly, from teaching things, and then telling one HOW to teach things. So it is partly, or sort of an instructor's manual and a learners manual. I like it, as the best method to really learn something, is to have to teach it. So it gives you that necessary perspective.

    I bought these nozzles for my Ender 3 which is using a stock hotend. They all fit perfectly. You do need to re-level your bed if you switch from a 0.2 to a 0.8mm nozzle. They are physically slightly longer. I mostly use the 0.4mm and 0.8mm and I'm having such amazing luck with the 0.8mm that I intend to test out the 1.0mm nozzle soon on several vase mode projects.

    I bought these based on the description "will work on all 1.75mm printers" and reviews for my genuine Prusa i3 Mk3. Do not believe it. The threads on these nozzles are loose fitting and .100" shorter than the original causing leaking and large clogs/jams.If you have a Prusa or anything with an E3D V6 hotend walk away.

    I bought these to replace a blocked 0.4mm nozzle on my Kossel Pro. At first the only difference seemed to be that they're about 1.4mm taller than the usual E3Dv6 nozzles, so recalibration for the additional height was no problem. However the first 0.4mm nozzle I took from the package jammed straight away. Then I had fun with one of the 1.0mm nozzles, which shortened my print times to a fraction of normal, with minimal loss of quality at 0.2mm layer height. However when I switched to a 0.4mm nozzle again it jammed after printing a few layers. I was unable to determine the exact cause of the jam, but upon disassembling the hotend I found the block was loose and had leaked at the top. The shorter threads of these nozzles mean the E3Dv6 heatbreak does not meet it inside the block, unless you screw the heatbreak in so far that the narrow part is inside the block, which defeats the design. Even then the heatbreak tightens down onto the block versus the 7mm threads that keep the heatsink, conducting heat away from it and further defeating the design. And then if you screw the heatsink on all the method it contacts the block as well, also defeating the design. I guess you could leave the heatsink unscrewed a little, but the narrow part of the heatbreak is inside the block. If you left the narrow part of the heatbreak out it would not be held tightly in the block and would quickly loosen from the motion of the print head and start to leak.Take a look at my image to see what I mean. The heatbreak is screwed down as far as it can go into the block and the heatsink is touching the block. The white items around the nozzle is thread tape. I use thread tape on the nozzle and heatbreak to stop leaks and it works well. I guess these nozzles can be created to work, I used the 1.0mm nozzle for several days without a problem, but the finer nozzles seem to jam for some reason that I can't explain. In short, I don't think these are a amazing choice if your 3D printer has an E3Dv6 style hotend.

    I was most interested in the 0.2mm nozzle for my Prusa i3 MK3. It clogged on me the first time but was easily unblocked. I was using the Prusa brand PLA so the issue wasn't poor filament. Another attempt and the filament started oozing around the sides. Yes, I did my best to tighten it. The SIQUK nozzles have a shorter thread length then the default E3D V6 nozzle. I think this is what lead to a loose extruder assembly. Create sure to adjust your Z axis sensor before running or you could hurt your print surface with this pointy nozzle like I ese still might be a amazing option for other printers but not for a Prusa i3. Also, there is always a possibility that I just don't fully understand how to tighten the extruder assembly to acc for the short threads. Take every review with a grain of salt.

    This brass nozzle set is a amazing bargain for the price. It comes with 22 nozzles in total, ranging from 0.2mm, all the method to 1.0mm.I'll probably never use the 0.8 or 1.0 mm nozzles and would likely need an extruder and hotend make batter to use them anyway. The more interesting nozzles for me are the 0.2 - 0.6mm sizes. I tried to obtain a picture of the nozzle holes, but my camera can only go so far in macro mode. The holes all appear to be very circular w/o any burrs. From my visual inspection, the nozzles appear to be well made.

    I bought these to have some spares and also a small dozens in case I wanted to test various things. So far I have only used the .4mm ones, but they seem to work just as amazing as the original on my Ender 3. They are slightly longer than the original so I did have to re-adjust the bed height to obtain the proper clearance, but that's a given any time you do anything to the hot end. The original had jammed and at this price, it was easier just to replace it than mess with trying to clean it. I thought one of these had jammed too and replaced it again, but it turned out to be a various issue with the extruder so it probably wasn't really jammed. At some point I will probably place it back in and test it again. I'm looking forward to trying some of the other sizes soon too.

    I've only used the 0.4mm nozzles but they work well. I used these on my Prusa I3 MK3 and my only tip is to create sure you keep the heat block well when changing, and to remember to adjust the PINDA probe height after changing it, then rerun XYZ calibration, and first layer height calibration.

    Out of the 10 0.4mm nozzles, not a single one was actually 0.4mm. The needle in the picture is 0.3mm in diameter and the nozzle wouldn't even slide down. That means the 0.4mm nozzle is likely 0.29mm or less which is significantly various from the 0.4mm. I didn't even bother checking the other nozzles.If I wanted inaccurate nozzles, I can obtain them 5 for 60 cents directly from China.

    With these various nozzle sizes, you can choose between quality and speed of your prints. These are MK8 nozzles so you have to have a printer designed to use MK8s.I immediately replaced a clone hybrid 0.4mm nozzle that came with my Tronxy X5SA that looks like an MK10 but has the threads of an MK8. I first installed one of these 0.8mm MK8 nozzles. They are a small various shape of hint than my old one but do fit amazing and prints properly. The more blunt head of the original wasn't quite so poor as these for catching on the print and getting layer shift. These are so pointy that they will catch on any blob of filament where the original blunt head (a hybrid) was a small better at skipping over bumps.I later replaced all the sizes, one by one to try them. I finally settled on a 0.6mm nozzle as it was a bit faster printing than the old 0.4mm but didn't lose a lot of quality. The quality of prints suffers a amazing deal by going to the 0.8mm or 1.0mm nozzles but man were they sticking to the plate and each layer well! The higher the nozzle bore size you choose the worse the quality. If you wish to quickly produce prints, these larger nozzles bores will support chop the time down to complete the print. Your parts will also generally be stronger with larger nozzle sizes.Or go super high-res by using the 0.2mm nozzle and a 0.05mm filament height setting if your printer can handle it. But be prepared...It takes up to 4 times longer to print with the 0.2mm than the standard least with this set of nozzles, you have a choice between quality/precision or speed/layer adhesion. I finally chose the 0.6mm one here as it gave quite a speed boost to printing but only reduced the quality of parts a bit. If you are doing figurines that need to look amazing go to a 0.2 or 0.3. The 0.4 and 0.5 are amazing middle quality nozzles and time useage. 0.6 begins to present some quality degrading while the 0.8 shows more. I found the 1.0 was too much of a loss of quality to tolerate and often caused globs of filament and layer careful though removing and replacing these often as it can wear your heat block out. Also watch out for the wires and heat block parts as you will have to keep that steady with pliars while removing the nozzle. I also added a silicone cover for the Tronxy X5Sa heat block and it stays warm better and now cleaner too.I did message that the larger ones wish hotter temps when moving lots of filament. You're moving filament faster in those so the plastic needs to be melting faster. Also, unless you also have a really amazing extruder, you'll obtain taller layer heights but will have to slow down your printer speeds or the extruder may not be able to hold up. If your extruder clicks a lot, you're running it too r the price these were a amazing buy to let me to experiment more to figure out how I would like this printer to work. Once you figure out what nozzle bore(s) work best for you using these, you can just order larger quantities of just that size next time. Most of the nozzles in this kit are the standard 0.4mm size with two of all the other sizes.

    I was skeptical because there was no reviews posted yet. But I decided to take a possibility and I'm glad I did. Exactly the same length as the cr-10 nozzles that came with the printer or the (cctree) nozzles that you can obtain on here. Although these are far superior Very well machined amazing to have the nozzle size etched on the nozzle and from the others that I've purchased these are the most well Machine decently priced hints I have found perfectly round hole at the hint amazing amazing awesome

    These are so inexpensive that I expected them to be not good quality. But it was such a amazing deal I decided to take a gamble and test anyway. I'm glad I did. I haven't measured the openings or anything, but on my Ender 3, every one that I have tried has worked excellent. I can easily achieve the actual wall thickness I'm aiming for with minimal tuning, and the prints come out looking great. So far I have used several of the .4mm nozzles (with PLA and PETG), the .5mm (with Hatchbox Wood PLA), and a couple of the .6mm ones (with PLA and PETG). Haven't tried the larger ones yet, but when I do have a reason to test a .8 or 1.0 nozzle I fully expect these to work great. Also haven't tried the .2mm nozzle, but I'm also optimistic.Will probably pick up a few more of these packs. You can never have too a lot of nozzles on hand, and at this price point, if one gets crusted with burnt-on filament, dropped and deformed, or otherwise messed up, I can literally just toss it and place on a brand fresh one, I'll be out a few cents.

    So,Lots of nozzles. All but one were marked on the outside to tell which size they are. one has no markings. I don't have cleaning needles in different sizes (yet) so who ggest problem - installed tighter Capricorn tubing on my ender 3 pro, and the intake size of these nozzles leaves a huge blob of filament on the end when swapping out filament. this makes it not fit back out of the Bowden tube at the extruder end (it is a tighter fit). Have seen reviews of some nozzles that are too little at the input end to fit 1.75 filament when cold. This sounds like a better set of nozzles given the Capricorn upgrade.Lots of nozzles for a low price...but not the greatest for my set-up YRMV

    The threaded part of the nozzle is too short. In order to properly install the nozzle the threaded part of the nozzle must butt up versus the threaded part of the heatbreak. The nozzle (except for the threads) should not touch the heatblock. In order to do this the heatbreak has to be threaded too far into the heatblock, leaving none of the unthreaded part of the heatbreak exposed. This will cause heat creep and clogging. Leaving a gap between the heatbreak and the nozzle in the heatblock will lead to filament leaking. This are simply too short for proper installation.

    Barrier Bond - Rust Off - Rust-Converter Coating - 1 Quart Bottle of Premium Rust Converting Coating - Anti-Rust Protection for Underbody Rustpoofing - Converts Rust to an inert Black Barrier review []  2020-1-18 21:30

    I used this on some surface rust for the frame of my vehicle and some outdoor furniture. A couple things to note, this isn't an instant rust converter, it takes up to 24 hours to turn into a black protective coating. That is something to hold in mind if you're planning to paint over it. It essentially means any job with paint is a two day job. I'm not sure if the process would go faster on a hotter day, but I applied on a 70 degree day and I didn't see any change to the surface rust until coming back the next day. This product isn't a benign product either, The label had lots of warnings about not letting it touch painted surfaces or obtain on your skin/eyes. Any put the product dripped stained the asphalt or at being said, although being slow it did convert the rust to a black surface that is holding up so far.

    I bought a rust-bucket old truck at Christmas time and it needs a LOT of work. I used this to treat all of the rusted locations in hopes of mitigating the hurt until spring arrives. In hard to reach locations I was able to use a easy spray cleaner bottle with an adjustable nozzle, and even a lawn sprayer. But you MUST use a respirator if spraying this stuff!Of course you should wear eye protection and rubber gloves regardless of app method. And remember it's flammable! Those locations where I left it on a bit too long turned almost white but that's normal with all of these types products and everything will have to be stripped before beginning any repairs anyway.

    It’s just a clear coat. It does nothing other than covers rust. It’s not converting any rust.

    A definite winner. Interesting, eccentric characters with a rich backstory that I look forward to learning more as well as see how they develop. The murder had a plethora of possible suspects with a satisfying conclusion.

    Death by the Sea (A By the Sea Mystery) review [Book]  2018-5-2 18:0

    I love cozy mysteries and was excited to see one set in my own backyard. But this one was a near snooze for me. The constant cheesy one liners about the 60's era TV shows that the main character's ex-actress aunt appeared in got to be a total bore after the ninth or tenth mention. And the aunt's "connection" to several celebrities and popular events created me wonder if this was the female ver of Forrest Gump. Not to mention that the "death by the sea" did not happen until nearly 100 pages into the story. But the clinker for me was that, since I do live in the zone of the setting, some of the author's descriptions of said zone are method off. I obtain trying to contain a small local flavor into the story but for goodness sakes, please create it actual local flavor. And I do realize that readers who are not familiar with the zone would not know the difference, but it created the story less enjoyable for me. I kept reading because I had paid for the book and didn't wish to waste my cash and I do admit that the story did obtain better after the murder took put but it just never really had me hooked.

    Death by the Sea (A By the Sea Mystery) review [Book]  2018-5-2 18:0

    Death by the Sea by Kathleen Bridge is the first book in the cozy A By the Sea Mystery series. The main hero Liz Holt has returned home to attractive Melbourne Beach, Florida and her family run Indialantic by the Sea z has been satisfied jumping back in at the hotel and helping her Aunt Amelia who was an actress at one point and still has her quirks. Liz even likes her aunt’s feisty parrot, Barnacle Bob. But as the hotel takes on a wealthy couple the wife does everything to try the nerves of Liz and her ever, as much as they debated on asking their guests to leave and take their demands with them they never wished to search the lady murdered. Now the list of suspects is growing by the min so Liz decides to do her own small bit of anyone that knows me knows I love a amazing small cozy mystery with their quirkiness and eccentric characters. Death by the Sea had the quirky edge that I have fun and even added in Barnacle Bob the parrot who was a laugh a min however when finished with this one I debated between a two and three star rating as unfortunately I didn’t fall in love with this opener in the series. After much debate I’m giving this one three stars and what saved it was the setting, Melbourne is somewhere I’ve vacationed quite a few times and enjoyed the virtual trip back there and then there was the few info here and there that I’m normally a fan.What stopped me loving this one was it was just so darn wordy throughout. There are dozens of characters involved and as each joins I felt like an information dump was going on. And then the mystery didn’t even obtain going until beautiful late in the book and by then I was getting more than impatient waiting. Even with the information dump feeling to a lot of things though there was a backstory with the main hero that kept being brought into the story that almost felt as if I had missed something somewhere like this was a spin off or continuation. I’m all for hero development and plenty of suspects but this one just seemed to go a small too far in some locations and not enough in others to where the story just dragged too much for me so I’m not sure I would continue onward in the series.I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.

    Death by the Sea (A By the Sea Mystery) review [Book]  2018-5-2 18:0

    Death by the Sea by Kathleen Bridge is the first novel in A By the Sea Mystery series. Elizabeth “Liz” Holt has returned home to Melbourne Beach, Florida to The Indialantic by the Sea Hotel and Emporium which is owned by Amelia Eden Holt, her aunt. Aunt Amelia is an eccentric former actress who helped raise Liz along with Liz’s father, Fenton Holt. Liz is living in the beach house. She helps out in the hotel and is working on her next novel (well—she is supposed to be). Their recent guest is Regina Harrington-Worth and her husband David who will be staying with them while their historic home is being demolished and a modern monstrosity is built in its place. Regina considers The Indialantic beneath her, but it is the only hotel with a vacancy that will let pets. After a successful Spring Fling event, they explore that Regina was found dead in her suite, her husband was stabbed, and some very expensive jewels have gone missing. Liz immediately dives in to search who committed the dastardly deed. Who disliked Regina enough to slay her (that is one long suspect list)? Join Liz at The Indialantic as she examines the clues and questions the suspects to catch the ath by the Sea is a slow starter. The murder does not happen until the forty-four percent mark. The beginning of the book is an introduction to the Liz, the hotel, the employees, Liz’s family, the guests, and the shops and their owners. The author overwhelms readers with the amount of info she is dishing out. Kathleen Bridge is a wordy writer. It creates a rich environment, but it also makes a slow-moving story. I do like the attractive hotel and emporium that Ms. Bridge made in Death by the Sea. I did feel that the story jumps around making it disjointed. Liz has returned home after a disastrous relationship that ended in Liz being physically injured. Since Liz and her paramour are public figures, the whole debacle was fodder for the media. There are numerous quirky characters with the largest one being Aunt Amelia. A famous actress during the 1960s who has passed her love of 60s sitcoms and films along to Liz. The different shows and films from that time-period are mentioned throughout the book (Dark Shadows, Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie, Gilligan’s Island for example). I enjoyed the comments regarding the famous teen girl mystery novels which included Nancy Drew, Connie Blair, and Dana Girls (which I collect). There was an abundance of repetition (it is a common malady in books that I have read recently) along with a cliché nasty detective. The pace picks up slightly in the second half of the book as the investigation gets under way. I think the author tried to place too much into one book. The hotel, the numerous quirky characters, the special shops, Liz’s nemesis, Liz and her issues, a love interest, Regina’s father and how he died, the treasure of the San Carlos, Spring Fling, Fenton Holt and his practice, the obnoxious bird with the foul mouth, the hairless cat, and Liz and her writing difficulties are just a few of the stuff in the book. The murder of Regina was not as complicated as it seemed, and it can be solved before the reveal. At the end of the book, readers are still left wondering how Liz was injured. We are told about her injuries, but not how they happened. There are also some contradictions (one example is the hotel is not doing well, but an employee has a huge suite and some people seem to live there for free). My rating for Death by the Sea is 3 out of 5 stars. I am hoping the author will scale back in A Killing by the Sea.*I voluntarily read an advanced copy of this book. The comment and opinions expressed are strictly my own.

    Any cozy mystery that references Nancy Drew, the Hardy Boys, and also contains a treasure is a champion in my book - and Death by the Sea, Kathleen Bridge's debut entry in her fresh By the Sea Mystery series has them all! Bestselling author Liz Holt returns home to the Indialantic by the Sea hotel in attractive Melbourne Beach, Florida, looking for a change in lifestyle after scandal upset her life in Manhattan. She's reconnecting with family - her father Fenton, her amazing aunt Amelia (what a hoot - I would love to have her in my family!), her best mate Kate - and a host of other friends, when one of the guests at the Indialantic by the Sea is found murdered and robbed of her fabulous jewelry. Liz and her squad of Detectiveteers decide to investigate as any amazing sleuth would, and set about to explore the murderer (who surprised this reader!!!). A very nicely written cozy and the beginning of what promises to be a fun fresh series. A+ to Death by the Sea!

    Death By the Sea is a first in a fresh series by Kathleen Bridge.I'm fresh to this author, but I've found another mystery that I thoroughly z Holt has returned to Indialantic, back to her home and her family and z left Fresh York Town under a cloud of shame and humility, bearing the scars of a tragic breakup, both inside and z is powerful and determined to create a new begin and the cast of colourful characters that the author has made are just the thing to support Liz e book started out a bit slow, but about half method through, things picked up and I was soon drawn to the mystery and the story behind it.I really enjoyed Aunt Amelia, she is a kind hearted person who loves to take care of everyone. She is quite the pip and I had loads of fun laughing alone with her is fresh series will appeal to all cozy mystery fans so be sure to pre order your copy now.I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book provided by the publisher and NetGalley.

    Death by the Sea (A By the Sea Mystery) review [Book]  2018-5-2 18:0

    I am a huge fan of Kathleen Bridge’s Hamptons Home & Garden series, so I was very eager to read the first book in her fresh By the Sea Mystery series. Death by the Sea takes us to the beach community of Melbourne, Florida, and introduces Elizabeth ‘Liz’ Holt who has returned home after a decade in Fresh York that ended in a tabloid scandal. Kathleen Bridge continued with a delightful writing style engaging my interest by bringing to life the oceanfront community, hotel environment, and a plethora of entertaining characters, but the descriptions and introductions seem to be the main focus for an extended amount of time, more than I personally prefer in my cozy mysteries. Where’s the murder? Karma definitely had a few amazing targets to choose from, but you’ll need to wait patiently for the crime to occur. Ok, the synopsis on the book websites gives you a clue to the victim, but it takes awhile to manifest.I did really have fun the informative references to treasure hunting, chicory coffee, the area’s history, and 60s tv programs and commercials with which I grew up, and while waiting for the crime and the subsequent investigation to obtain going, Kathleen Bridge did make a rich set of characters and an engaging subplot dealing with Liz Holt’s scars, emotional and physical. The rich characters which contain her father, her quirky aunt, friends, BFFs, and a possible romantic interest provide a bit of humor…don't forget a very odd cat Venus and an obnoxious parrot Barnacle Bob. But despite waiting for the crime/investigation, I enjoyed this first book and am eager for the next book, A Killing by the Sea. The ongoing store business, unique hotel events, Liz’s writing career, and a blooming romance are intriguing enough to create me a fan!It is always exciting to see a cozy with my two favorite words. No, not Murderous Fun, although that's always a amazing to see. No,…Recipes Included! It's even more exciting when the recipes aren't random, but create for a complete food or are actually connected to the theme or characters in the story. Kathleen Bridge has included four marvelous recipes excellent beginning to end. From Pops’ Deli-casies By the Sea we begin with Pops’ Kalamata Hummus, next have fun an entree of Baked Grouper Bites with Banana Salsa and a side of Coconut Rice, then have fun from Chef Pierre’s Kitchen his Coconut Lime Sugar Cookies. Yum!Disclosure: I received an ARC, but my insights and comments are voluntary and honest.

    Death by the Sea (A By the Sea Mystery) review [Book]  2018-5-2 18:0

    Death by the Sea is the first book in Kathleen Bridge’s By the Sea Mystery series. The author provides attractive descriptions and lots of history about the family-run inn and the surrounding area. The characters are well developed. As is often real in the first book in a series, the mystery doesn’t begin until close to the middle of the book, but then the well-plotted mystery moved at a fast pace, with lots of twists and turns. I’m looking forward to reading the next installment in this z Holt, an award-winning author, returns to Melbourne Beach, Florida from Manhattan, where she’s lived for the past ten years, after being involved in a scandal with her writer boyfriend. She’s staying at her childhood home, an old style Florida hotel, Indialantic by the Sea Hotel, which is owned by her eighty-year-old paternal great-aunt, Amelia Eden Holt, a former tv hero actress. After her mother passed away when she was five years old, she moved there with her dad, Fenton, who is an attorney. Amelia has a foul mouthed but adorable thirty-year-old macaw named Barnacle Bob. Liz’s great-aunt and dad surprised her with the beach house so she would have a put to continue her writing, but she’s using her role helping at the Indialantic and being her dad’s assistant as an excuse not to write. A huge portion of the hotel is now home to a collection of quirky characters and their pets. Liz is organizing the First annual Indialantic Spring Fling by the Sea at the emporium they recently opened and dealing with Regina Harrington-Worth, their fresh celebrity guest, who is overbearing and making everyone miserable. Regina and her husband are staying in the Oceana Suite and when a robbery occurs, she’s strangled and her husband is stabbed. Fenton’s friend, Agent Charlotte Pearson, is in charge of the case, but Liz is determined to search out if it was a burglary gone wrong or an intentional act and Liz’s childhood friend, Kate Fields, and several residents obtain involved in finding out what happened so their lives can return to normal. Sparks fly between Liz and Ryan Stone, who’s taken a leave from the Fresh York Town Fire Department to support his grandfather, Pops, at the Deci-casies by the Sea while Pops’ fresh knee heals.I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

    Death by the Sea (A By the Sea Mystery) review [Book]  2018-5-2 18:0

    This is the first installment in the By the Sea Series set in the Indianatlantic Inn set on a barrier island off the coast of Melbourne, Florida. I really enjoyed Ghostal Living in the author's prior series and I was eager to test this one. I was also attracted to the cover, description and the attractive setting of Melbourne Beach/Sebastian Inlet, Florida. Liz Holt, a successful author in her own right, has quietly returned to live with her father and great-aunt Amelia and her squawky parrot, Barnacle Bob, after a traumatic break-up with a Pulitzer Prize winning author has left her with a scarred face. Liz is trying to write another book but continues to have flashbacks of the poor night. While trying to restore the Inn to its former grandeur, Aunt Amelia regales the reader with all of her history and knowledge of shows from the 1960's and 70's like Bewitched, Gilligan's Island, I Dream of Jeannie, to name a few. There are so a lot of more, which diverted from the mystery and just seemed like overkill. Wealthy socialite and guest Regina Harrington-Worth and her husband David are the only current guests. To the consternation of the historical society, she is trying to tear down a nearby landmark, Castlemara, which she inherited from her father, so she can develop the property for herself. She has managed to anger someone to the point of no return because she is found murdered in her suite and the find for her killer(s) begins.I really, really wanted to like this book more than I did. From the beginning, I was overwhelmed with the number of characters and potential suspects. The murder didn't happen until far too long and by that time, it was hard to stay interested in such a disjointed pace. I was very confused about the actual status of the Inn; at times, it appears that they are on a shoestring budget but then there is the Worth's luxurious suite and the fancy shops. The attempted romance between Liz and visiting Fresh York Town firefighter Ryan Stone seems too contrived. By the end of the book, which I did finish in about 5 or 6 settings, I honestly had no true interest in finding the killer. That being said, it is the beginning of the series, so I will give the next book a read and hope that the characters gel better for me this time.**Thanks to NetGalley and Kensington Books for a complimentary copy of this book. My review is voluntary.

    three stars, but just because I'm only reviewing the description, I obtain that you used the old description, and that's what I'm talking about, but it sounds like someone selling some kind of drug rather than an app. especially with the phrase, "With only a few hours of MalO"
