  • Cool little build. I love padauk. Use the shit out of it. Trust me when I say it takes less skill with woodworking and more patience than anything else. Building/repair is how I make my living. The biggest reason most guitars are made through a gluing process like that is lumber billets large enough for 1 piece…
  • Keetal - "Steiny" lvl 50 Marauder (SW) Soresu- "Steiny" lvl 50 Powertech (BH) For those of you keeping track, this game has accounted for me not being here for at least the last 4 months or so.
  • First of all, DB is spot on. A real woman is going to be just as hesitant to really jump into things as you. Why? Because there's some hurt somewhere and they want to build trust. Sounds like relationships make you claustrophobic. I'm much the same way, and man does it suck a girthy dick. For me, it's less the faithfulness…
  • Horses are fucking stupid. I've dealt with it enough that I know how to do personal damage control. I'll get through it with a minimal effort just because it's who I've become. I've become largely unsympathetic towards these things, but this one managed to suck my ass in. Doesn't change the fact that it makes for a shitty…
  • One thing I would add is speak with confidence when answering questions. Hell, your body language should reek of self-confidence (but not arrogance). Make it apparent that YOU are the right person for the job. Follow up in whatever way best suits you. Phone call, thank you note, etc. The one time everything listed didn't…
  • As I said, for the fund starter, Kick-Starter is a major pain in the ass because of the all or nothing funding. At least with the others you do end up with some money, even if you don't hit your goal. As far as auditing how the money is spent, it's an issue with ever one of them. I'm sure there has been more than one fund…
  • I can't help but think I would shout "THIS IS THE GREATEST DAY OF MY LIFE!" as I take my pants off. Makes me wish I lived somewhere with a subway. :(
  • I'm sure there are those, including some on this very site, that would quite enjoy evacuation of the bowels and bladder. I, however, am not one of them.
  • Fair enough. I was thinking of the ones I see around town that do flash for increased visibility.
  • So, if you end up with an epileptic, and a seizure starts, is that considered a win? I can totally see the appeal...
  • I've never been good with writing prompts. Usually just makes me even more stumped. Like slarti, I go wherever my mind can wonder for a few hours. Driving works wonders, as does (when it's warm) sitting outside with a good cigar. A good smoke may cloud the lungs, but it does wonders to clear the mind.
  • Dimmed, at least. I've got two sets of lights in my room. The one directly over my bed gets killed, the other stays on. Keeps a good view without someone having to stare directly into a light.
  • I've got a pair of leather semi-casual shoes I wear when I go out. They're comfortable, non-slip on. Bought a shitty pair of "skate" shoes from walmart a while back for when I'm at home. Also comfortable, but look like shit with everything I own. Kind of look like what many refer to as "old man shoes" minus the velcro.
  • You are such a dick. I tip my hat to you, sir. Finally installing it on my desktop. Had it on the laptop, but it ran like shit (processor speed on the laptop is too slow). Can't wait, provided I don't run into anything like you.
  • Our problem was never bus passes. It was parking passes. Says right on the pass "parking NOT guaranteed". So, for $120 per semester, I can maybe, possibly, get a parking spot kinda close to my class. That is, IF I decide to show up 45-60 minutes early, squat in the lot and wait for someone to leave. I was lucky in that I…
  • 98 Nissan Sentra was my first. Great car when we got it, shit car by the time it passed to me. Thanks, mom. 86 Wagoneer was the first one I bought.
  • Not sure I could make it 106 miles with another smoker with only a half pack of smokes. Sure, it's less than 2 hours, but some people (such as myself) chain smoke while driving. Anyway, great fucking movie. Really need to rewatch it soon.
  • The only reason I "celebrated" christmas this year was because my parents were home for the holidays instead of pissing off to PA, leaving me alone in the house. My "celebration" started by trying to figure out why my room reeked of whiskey vomit and why my pants/boxers were not on my person. The rest of my day was spent…
  • Isn't the cap related to what current processors can effectively utilize? I've heard the same from several other sources. Given my own recent research, I've found one of the larger issues with slow computing is your processor's speed. I'm sitting at 4gb of ram and 2.0Ghz processor. Fairly certain the processor is what's…
  • The logic behind it baffles the hell out of me, too. In NE, likely among a few other states, there are separate permits for open and concealed carry. It creates some admittedly grey area regarding firearm ownership. You don't need open or concealed permits to own a handgun. However, if you take a handgun to a range in your…
  • I remember giving a speech in college advocating concealed carry on campus. For dramatic effect, I holstered an airsoft pistol on my right hip. That thing was bulky, a touch larger than the M&P .45 (good call, btw). No once noticed I had it on. I thought someone might. Had a loose fitting shirt on, but I was a little…
  • Congrats, and best of luck to ya, man!
  • Did we JUST switch the domain? Guess I don't pay much attention, otherwise. I do like the idea. Gives a feeling of who we are rather than where we were. The web has come a long way since the original &T. As such, I can't really disagree with sticking closer to adsense rules. Anything we once came here to find that was…
  • Man. Here I was thinking Dfg finally had some metamucil and was too busy having solid shits for two days to get online. I'm disappointed.
  • I think it was around 20/35 each week. To be fair, I was 175 or so when I was going. Used to go with a group of friends. I could get there late, and always had more taken, yet I always got done before them. Buy one of these if you're going to do it. It's a gripmaster. Great if you play guitar. Handy if you need more…
  • As you may have seen in one of my threads, I also attempted a tube amp and cab build. Here are pics of my chassis. Hope it gives you some sort of inspiration. Just used pine, red oak stain, and some gold/black paint. By the way, what did you build the transformer for?
  • Well, shit, man. I'm not around here as much as I'd like, but I've always thought you were a pretty solid chap. It'd be a shame to think you're not here, or anywhere else. It's your decision, bud, through and through. Despite the widely accepted notion, you're never too young to go. Especially on your own terms. People die…
  • Installing a truss rod isn't a must, but it can be incredibly useful, especially if you're thinking of doing a one piece casting. I'm sure chippy could give more insight on the how for this than I, but you could rout the back of the neck fender style and re-fill the cavity with an acrylic strip with a different shading,…
  • I should think you'd be able to. You can build your neck as one piece as happens with maple necks with the same fretboard. You can build the body and neck as one piece as with neck thru designs. Why not combine them? From what I've seen, acrylic isn't a great neck material because of its brittle nature, unless you really…
  • I'm sure it'll have its own unique tonal properties, especially if you add any sort of density pockets in the mold. I'd think you could add some natural reverb by carefully adding air pockets, as well. I'm just having my own fun with wild woods. Whatever lights your creative fire, and all that, man. Didn't even think of…
  • Where did my dick go? She said she was 18, your honor. Let's have kids. Sure, you can pay me in pot. I don't need your money, and it HAS been a rough week... Mom, Dad. The girl I'm dating...she's black. I think that covers every major aspect of my life.
  • I've been thinking about doing acrylic for a while now, after seeing a custom shop that does the same thing with different shades of transparent resin. Very sharp looking pieces. Biggest reason I haven't looked into it is I've been exploring the effects of certain exotic woods and construction techniques on tone and…
  • Haha. So I am. Son of a bitch. I should probably stop responding to these things when I'm fucking exhausted. Very cool project, regardless.
  • Are you going to do an SRV style monkey grip on the body? Best of luck with it. Be sure to post pictures when you're done!
  • I stand well corrected. Go chippy. Thought wax paper beneath might work, but that'd create some...interesting textures on the resin itself.
  • Try mdf. To my knowledge, the resin wont adhere to the mold. You'll likely have to build up multiple layers and rout/sand the interior to make it work properly. Do some research on that one first, as I'm not 100% on it. Past that, if you have any questions on guitar building, feel free to pm me. Building and repair is…
  • It gets better when a self proclaimed "lingere and romance superstore" opens right next to the shop you work at. Trust me.
  • Alive and well. Just been way too damn busy to post very often. The Jeep died back in early may. Sold it to a scrapyard. Took the money and put a down payment on an 05 cherokee laredo w/ v8. Holy shit, what a ride that thing was. Sadly, within a week of being told "everything's set, yer good to go!," I get a call saying…
  • Don't think I've ever gotten something like that. I do have my share of useless gift swiss army knockoffs. Blades are shit, and I doubt their ability to hold an edge. Sometimes the tools wouldn't come out properly. Had a few break on me. Got a leatherman knockoff for christmas one year. It's such a piece of shit for the…
  • I dug the Stephen Fry video. Never really found myself offended by swearing. Out of courtesy, if I know someone finds it blatantly offensive, I'll try to watch my tongue. In all reality, I think the reason I swear so much these days is I spent so much time touting a higher than average vocabulary. I began to realize no one…
  • Well, I'm a bit over a month late on this. Really shows how much I've missed and how goddamn busy I've been. I do like the direction the community has been moving. I wish I had more time to be a part of it. As far as I can tell, dfg and other mods/admins have the exact right idea. Sure, the site has a strong respect for…
  • Movie was fairly decent. The climax did have some predictability to it. However, there were a handful of "jump" moments that were effective, no matter if they were predictable or not. Was the torrent a well shot bootleg or an advanced digital copy someone got their hands on?
  • Preferably with small children present. Don't bother explaining anything. Just tell them to google it.
  • Never played Killzone. Just remember that it was hailed as a "Halo killer" and fell short of that.
  • Definitely Demon's Souls. Definitely has replay value, imho, and you can usually get it for under $20. God of War was a solid series. Still haven't played the third installment, but it looks spectacular. MAG was a damn fun shooter. Dunno if the community is still active or not. For me, not needing to pay two subscription…
  • dl'ing now. Will post input later.
  • Dfg, you win at life. Seriously need to brush up on my spanish. Was just shy of minor fluency not long ago. Definitely could have bypassed a traveler's dictionary if I went to a fluent country. 20 fucking gigs, though? Shit's headed straight to the external hdd.
  • I've also heard quite a bit of fuss over it. Still haven't seen it. It was on my netflix dvd list as a "coming soon" title. Got the torrent. I'll watch it tonight and give input. Have a feeling I'll be in the same boat as RemadE. EDIT: Ok. Finished the film. Maybe I'm just incredibly desensitized to fucked up things, but…
  • Monday, February 14, 2028 sadistic, smoker, male, bmi of 29. Only chippy will die before me. Apparently.
  • When you were born, you were the: 5,374,893,383rd person alive on Earth 80,484,109,130th person to have lived since history began Jesus. Makes me feel young when compared to Chippy and TDR.
