Hey, Nelson, it's Casey.

I got frustrated with the Makerbots last night too, so I also emailed 
Fab. Miloh, in his infinite wisdom, set me straight:

"afaik, makerbot cupcakes need SF (skeinforge) slices from the one 
bundled with repG27 or repG28 at the most..."

So there you have it. Downgrading to replicatorg 27 should fix it! I 
haven't tried yet.
