Re: Finally back in my room! ….sorta

when was the school built? I know when south lakes was built in the late 70s, it was truly a prison (and i served a 3 year sentence when it first opened). the only classrooms that had any windows were the biology labs (and those were windows into hallways that had windows outside). i think they've f...

Re: Finally back in my room! ….sorta

I’ve done that very thing for years! Started with the jumbo paper clips just as you described. In recent years I’ve used 3M Tape to secure hooks that I hung the flags from. I think the big flags will go up in that back wall Monday. this is the kind of thing that makes me think, "how can i make...

Re: Finally back in my room! ….sorta

you're missing an opportunity! those ceiling tile grids end *right* at the edge of the wall. so you can create some hangers that clip onto the ceiling tile grid and hang things from those. hell, even a jumbo paper clip folded properly would do. you could easily hang the flags by the grommets like th...

Re: Finally...and framed

i think i recognize that one on the right, too. maybe.

nice job w/the puzzle. one of the interesting things i've learned to do on my laser cutter is make custom puzzles. and i actually make them on wood (although i could do chipboard, too).

Re: Happy birthday gwells!

Thanks all. You’re not late to me, @welshlad. It’s only 6:30 pm at the Dallas airport terminal I’m hanging out in. On my way back from a work trip to Santa Fe, NM. No big plans. This year is minor, next year is the bigger one (60). I did get to do some glass blowing as part of my trip. Team building...

Re: Tag from Ernest Jones - no warranty card

i'd at least threaten to return it as a product not as described.

and i'd talk to the head office again and tell them they either need to give you the warranty card or refund your money. it sounds like the manager is full of #### and it's possible they either lost or took the card.

nomos has done color variations in a lot of watches. but they tend to be very pale pastels, not bright colors.

i feel like Sinn would say they copied Nomos instead of Rolex/Omega.
