  1. Flames on Optimus... Damn you, Micheal Bay and your love of fire. Welcome to the zoo.
  2. Looks like you took Cheeto dust to the ultimate extreme. LD
  3. Finally ran out of space? :D
  4. Haven't tried it, nor do I have the time to, sadly. Does it give you a way to output for machining? One of the things that sucked about earlier free versions of 3d cad programs was that they deliberately gimped the files or shut off file export. I definitely couldn't use it to design parts if they were free to all. We've already seen a few knock-offs of Bill's stuff. I agree SU is pretty clumsy when you leave the 90 degree axes. Anything that could output complex 3d shapes in solid models would be a Godsend.
  5. 2 dozen server migrations will do that.
  6. You are in luck. It looks like he's re-hosted the pics already after the big Photobucket backstab. Welcome to the Zoo.
  7. No, They've been plooking us the entire time. This is just that point when you realize you've been in an abusive relationship.
  8. Plushy picker crane? He did it! The absolute madman! That rocks, man.
  9. Price of parts is probably the best you can do. If you don't actually have a bill for services rendered, it might as well be trash to most people. It might help if you have a way to document the amount of time spent on it. Be glad it wasn't Saudi movers. My cousin caught them smashing his $18,000+ four-poster bed to make it easier to carry. Then they argued it was made to come apart- via kicking and slamming on the ground.
  10. I'm glad I'm back up too. Just gotta sort out roughly 3000 picture links on 2 forums and...
  11. Testing...Testing... @Kylevdm , our gracious fearless leader, and head of the Munkey Party, has offered me a place to host my pics. You might have noticed project logs all over going black thanks to Photobucket, who decided to take everyone's work hostage unless they pay for their premium package. For the time being I've set up my sleeping bag between his couch and the record cabinet. I'll be slowly rebuilding my logs, but for now, I need to get something up, right? -IT WORKED..*cough* I mean, Here's one of those classy ghetto clamping jobs I'm famous for. I have a piston rod slipped over the vice screw, and it's wedged with a block of wood. -Needless to say, it slipped a little in the mill, but a little filling and filing will fix that. Now I need to make a pcb for this. -oooh. ow. -One more odd thing going on the case: This was once a sink drain. Here I'm epoxying the gaps between flat-brass-thing and round-tank-thing. -In preparation for making a pcb, I've been shopping and surfin'. I've picked up a bunch of electronic components, some blank pcb board, and these microscopic buggers. I'm not sure how I'm going to zero something in the mill I can't see. I'd love to know how they cut flutes into a sewing needle. -On a side note: I've finally found some accent material for my next project. (Yeah, like I'm going to get time to finish THIS project.) I picked this up from acrilex.com, and it wasn't cheap. Hey, I'd much rather spend my cash on this than spend $400 to have someone host a lousy 130 megs of pictures. -This stuff opens up a lot of possibilities. It reacts to light and background colors very differently. Most standard plexi colors dominate whatever you put it over. Unfortunately, I'm back on the clock. -New house with many problems. Unfortunately, I have project log repair to do as well. Oh, and I gotta find my sponsor banners somewhere in 3600 pictures. Thanks for looking.
  12. Photobucket are doing a fine job killing themselves. Just give it time.
  13. Best use of silicone ever. It looks like a member of your fan club got too close to it, though...
  14. That looks like what the case SHOULD have looked like stock. Nicely done. New fan guard looks like a Briggs&Stratton magneto fan cover.
  15. Aww, boo. It doesn't hover.
