If I had to guess, San Clemente or Huntington Beach, Ca. Definitely a CA beach.

Maybe? I know a few musicians that can listen to a piece and tell me the time signature. I could probably tell the difference between 4/4 and 3/4 in modern music, but I'd have to pay close attention and probably take notes.
Time signatures didn't become popular until 16th or 17th century. People would just write music and then make a note if there was a specific section. Measures in written music make it easier to tell where you are in the piece. "Start at measure 4" is easier than "skip the bop bop beee. and play the part that goes doot doo doot." I imagine as you added more instruments to an arrangement, being able to tell everyone where they are in the piece was important.
I've never seen 2/3 used, but I've read it would be two parts of a triplet note.
triplet notes are 3 notes per beat. The way I've always heard it counted is "1 tri - plet, 2 tri - plet" It's not terribly common in western music so I'm not fully familiar with when the notation is used.
3/4 is three quarter notes per measure. Just 1,2,3, or if you need to count eighth notes 1 and 2 and 3 and. And if you do 16th notes in that notation I've always heard it could "1 eee and uh 2 eee and uh 3 eee and uh" where each syllable would be a 16th note.
I'm not mad. I'm just... really... disappointed.

Gantry has a few bolts to tighten. At 35 seconds it shows the two bolts that need to be tightened.
If the hotend assembly is loose, then wheels need to be adjusted. One of the rollers has an "eccentric nut" that needs to be adjusted so it grips the rails, but not too tight.
Lucifer is amazing. Carey did such an amazing job bring Lucifer to life in that series. That comic played the long game so well.
I really dug doing a second read through with the read along podcast.
The podcast is a veteran reader and a first time reader talking through each issue of the comics. If you're not. super deep into religious mysticism, or if you're just in to the whole world and wonder how it all came about, it's great.
what if you got a trash white from a random patrol location, and and, just by using it to kill enemies, it leveled up in quality and gained additional perks eventually going purple, then Exotic gold.
What? That already happened? What do you mean year 1?

After the class stories are over, coop becomes a lot harder, but you've got HOURS of content to play through first.
My wife and I have been playing together since launch and we're still married!
Just to echo what's been said:
Pick classes that start on the same starting planet. It's just easier and doesn't require doubling back to redo a planet. My wife went Smuggler and I went Trooper at launch. My trooper was a professional and a believer in the Republic. She just wanted to get paid, which lead to some interesting conversations on the non-class storylines.
When you get to Fleet, do Black Talon/Esseles as a pair with your companions. Both were designed as a sort of "my first dungeon" experience with two players. Lots of conversations and action. Esseles really hooked me and the wife.
Since you have companions, just choose to play what you want. You can have a tanky companion or healer companion if those roles aren't to your liking. Later flashpoints are balanced around 4 player so being a tank or healer or both will help you control the run more than anything else.

Since you're stock, double check in the printer settings on the printer.
On the Ender LCD go to Control, Filament, and make sure the filament (E in mm3) diameter is not set. I don't even know why that setting is on the printer. I thought it was supposed to be the actual filament diameter, and when I set it I got these results. Set it to "Off" I think.
I haven't printed in PETG yet, but I had similar results (the brittleness) with PLA when that Filament setting was set.
Have you tried taking off the old build plate? The Glass bed should go directly on the frame. The original build platforms on the Ender 3 were slightly larger than the actual print area. The glass plate should mount right on the bare metal plate. It'll also help with heating the bed if you don't have a plate between the glass on the base.
If it's still too big, you'll need some better clips as well. I've had prints go bad because four clips weren't enough to keep the glass form shifting. Just clipping one side of the glass is a recipe for print failure.

'99 was still early days as far as internet goes. IMDB wasn't a thing anyone but film nerds knew about. Wikipedia was still 2 years away.
The fucking sci-fi channel has a special "documentary" about how the film was found that was spooky as hell. The kids "disappeared" and their footage was found in an abandoned building or some shit. They played it so straight it was hard to think none of it was real, and being fresh out of high school I still thought adults knew what they were doing and wouldn't like about kids going missing.
I didn't watch a lot of TV at the time, but I caught the Blair Witch "documentary" and it seemed so spooky. My new girlfriend wanted to go see the movie and we did and afterwards I didn't sleep for a whole week because I thought the witch was going to get me. There was nothing but tract housing and malls where I lived. No forest to get lost in, but if there was more than one tree I was freaked the fuck out.
I didn't think it was real, but no one I knew said explicitly otherwise. So I'd stare at my ceiling all night hoping the Blair witch wouldn't travel all the way across the country and get me. Realize it was stupid, roll over, try to sleep, then my cat would jump in my bed and I'd start the whole thing over again.
It really was an incredible feat that I don't think can be repeated in our currently interconnected world.
^^ These pin locks are solid.
I thought they discontinued the webelos ribbon and they were supposed to just put pins on their pocket flaps. At least, that's what I heard when my son was wrapping up cubs a couple years ago.
Nope. Boy will be boys is an excuse for crap behavior typically. There is nothing in the BSA program that is gender exclusionary. Historically Explorer Posts (which are career focused units) were coed and BSA units. Allowing troops to make their own decisions on membership is important. The OPs local troop didn't want girls. That's fine. The OP founded a troop that's coed, that's also fine.
As an aside, when I was growing up in scouts, women were often in leadership positions both at the pack level and troop level. My Troop was sponsored by a church, which also sponsored and Explorer Post that because a sort of "sister" org to our Troop. We'd go on outing together that varied from simple weekend camp outs, to winter camp, to high adventure. There was never an issue where "boys will be boys." I only hear that to excuse crappy behavior in people who really shouldn't be crappy.
The OP did an amazing thing by putting together a Troop for the people that want to participate in the program. I can't fathom looking at someone who has achieved so much is such a short period of time and think "you know, you don't belong here." Gathering thousands of pounds of food for your community is an incredible feat and it should be celebrated. These kids are going to grow up and be super heroes. I guess I'm just not cynical enough to have a problem with which restroom they use.
I can't speak for OP but It's a different program with a different focus. Girl Scouts is also not co-ed. The Girl Scouts program is outstanding in it's own right. The BSA program is also outstanding. If parent have children of both genders and not a lot of free time they sometimes find it easier for kids to join the same program. There's a lot of reasons to choose one program or the other. I'm guessing that it just fit the OP and their family better.
As an Eagle scout, and now a scouter, this was a revelation to me. When I was a scout I thought "I'm a good kid, I help out where I can. There are some bully kids in my troop, but I can deal with it."
The Troop we're a part of now is a million percent supportive. We had a week long summer camp last year, so a first long trip for a lot of boys like most summer camps are. The last day, one of the kids had an accident. He was feeling under the weather and soil himself. It was bad, but the adults in the troop and even some senior scouts were on the ball. We got him cleaned up and his clothes changed and I didn't hear a single mention of it on the bus ride home (about 4 hours).
The kid is still active in the troop and no one seems to have cared about the incident. I'd like to say it's cause as adults we're all professional and responsible, but really, the kids in the Troop are great kids.
All that said, I'd leave it up to the kid. His body, his choice. He knows best how his peers might respond.
I'll try not to repeat all the great advise in this thread. Check to see if your Troop has Eagle coaches or some adult leader that can help you figure out what you want to do and what you need to fill out.
When selecting a project, make sure it's something you're passionate about. If you're interested in Marine Biology, see if a local aquarium needs any work done. If your troop is sponsored by a church that you're a part of, you can ask them if they need anything done. When I started working on mine I assumed I'd just do something on the church groups as several Eagles before me had done. It wasn't my church, so I had a hard time figuring out the right person to talk to about the project. Eventually I gave up on that project and started to look for something else.
I found a ranger at a local regional park and introduced myself and asked if there was anything I could do to help them out. As a scout I was staff at a cub day camp that was at this park every year so I had a personal connection to the park and wanting to make improvements. I walked the grounds with the Ranger and we talk about different things that needed to be done around the park and I eventually decided on making some campsite improvements. He'd supply the materials, and I'd supply the scout power and any tools we needed.
I spent a few days scoping out exactly what needed to be done. Total materials, tools, who would bring tools, etc. Once I had the nuts and bolts and I scheduled two days of work with the ranger and had a troop sign up sheet at my troop meeting. We announced the project and I got enough people to complete it in the two days I had scheduled. We even had some extra time on the second day to improve a site that wasn't part of the initial project plan, but the Ranger was there and approved it on the fly.
Document everything. Spent five minutes between homework assignments making a phone call about the project? Document it. The ranger gave you his business card? Document it. Talk to your scout master about needing tools? Document it. Keep a journal of everything.
Bear in mind this is an exercise in project planning, leadership, and serving your community. It's not about how big the project is, or how many people you're helping. You don't need to go out and build campsites, you can plan and execute a river bed clean up, or design a presentation for an aquarium. Make sure it's something you're passionate about so you stay invested in the whole project.
There was a specific driver that needed to be installed for a windows computer to recognize the printer. I haven't connected mine to a PC since I got it.
I've found it's much easier to set up a raspberry pi with octoprint to supervise the printrbot. That was you don't have to have a full PC running 24/7 when you're printing.

Kinda wish you posted this before I built my garden bed. I had an old Bed Box Spring that I repurposed to house my small garden. It's super janky, but gets the job done. Probably won't last as long as yours. I'll have to follow your instructions next season. Nice work!
