Look, I don't want to be a prude here, and I'll occasionally slip myself, but I DO use this site as a resource for my team at school, so please no more 'F-bombs' It's the sort of thing that can get me into real trouble.

And yes, I agree, it was very cool.

My mistake. I could not think of any other way to describe my enthusiasm. It has been corrected.

What's even cooler is my friend build this projector from scratch using an LCD screen from a monitor and a gigantic halogen(i think) bulb. That thing is badass. So now when it's late at night and i have a craving for cading something, i can come here and indulge myself.

And lately i've been addicted to Savior by Rise against. -good shop music

And because picture frames are boring....

Random Awesome Things - Page 6 Lights10

I got a set of cold cathode lights for a computer case, cut off the molex plug and pci plate slider switch and connected a rocker switch and 9v battery snap. I hacked a part a 12v AC/DC wall adapter and put another 9v battery snap on it so this can use a 9v battery (which is dim) or be plugged into the wall. We'll see how it turns out.

No I took small passes with a 3/4" and used a 1/4" for some profiling. But now I can borrow my friends 5" insert endmill for some big time milling. Good thing too cause I have some huge parts to make.

No one liked the "Womb" comment? I thought it was kinda cleaver.
