      has delivered my stuffs. Good times. I now have most everything I need to get my three blades put together (still need some stuff for sheaths). I also need to rig up something to keep the dust in check when I dremelling, too. Not sure what, but I can be pretty creative when supplies are limited.

      So my supervisor is going to be gone most of this week, which means I get to answer phone calls and such. This should prove to be interesting considering that we have a couple groups on campus using out facilities. I just KNOW that while he's gone they'll come asking about something that he was going to do for them, I just know it.

      Got to shoot my fathers .308 cal DPMS AR. That was pretty sweet even though I was shooting minute of grapefruit with it. Recoil is lighter than my G3, but the buttplate on that thing is unforgiving. Holds well to the shoulder but it's designed like a meat tenderizer.

      Anywho, I'm gonna kick back, drink a beer or two, listen to some music (youtube link, not a rick roll), maybe play some WoW, and possibly start cleaning up my blades. Have a good night folks.

      Anybody have some 320 grit and 400 grit wet/dry sand paper? I should be able to get a mirror finish out of 8670 steel, but I've got a whole bunch of little bitty scratches that I can't buff out, so I need to stand it from the beginning again. Suck.

      Didn't end up going fishing tonight. I wanted to, but the docks were too busy with boaters for me to find a place to perch. That sucked, but what are ya gonna do, ya know?

      So instead I ordered out chinese and watched 300, then attempted to buff out my knife. It looks nice, but at the right angle in the light you can see all the little scratches.

      Anyway, I'm gonna go try to do something moderately intelligent. I hope you all have a good weekend!

      can go suck a bag of dicks. Ok, I'm sorry if I offended anyone, but I am a little upset by the crazy weather thats been running rampant through our nation.

      My knife order was supposed to come in today. So I decided to check my UPS tracking number and see if it was out for delivery.

      It wasn't. It's in Missouri.

      So I took a quick look at the weather and it appears that mother nature is trying to wipe that part of our nation from the map. Great. Thanks, tons, I didn't need that stuff anyway. Sure. Fine.

      FUCK YOU!!!!

      Ok, I feel better now. Anywho, I'm gonna leave work early today, do some errands, go fishing, and pack to go visit me pappy this weekend. Have a good one folks.

      pick it up some time, it's a great book.

      Anywho, work was entertaining today. Mail server went down and I got to answer all of the panicky phone calls. Good times. Swapped another motherboard out of a Gateway 2610D (fucking Broadcom adapters). The only really good thing was that it was cooler than yesterday, and a lot less muggy.

      My order of knife stuff comes in tomorrow. I'm gonna get out of work early so as to be there when it shows up. Can't wait, it's gonna rock. I also plan on going fishing if I can catch the tide when it's in. Doubt I'll catch anything, it's still a touch on the cold side.

      This weekend I'll be out at my dads place. I'll have to pick up some steak on the way there to grill for dinner. The wife will probably want chicken or something like that, which is fine. Mmmm...T-bone...

      I think I'm going to go play some COD4 or maybe some Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, at least for a little while. Adios.

    • One thing I love about hobbies

      11 years ago

      Anastasius

      Is that there is always one more thing that you need in order to get a project done. For example, I'm working on a blade for my father. It was going to be his Father's Day gift, but it's taking longer and long to get done because I keep finding tools or parts that I need to finish it. To start with I bought the blade. Ok, now I need bolster material (Brass, nickel silver, copper, damascus, makume), handle material (dymondwood, stabilized hard woods, Ironwoods, composites), and pins (brass, nickel silver, stainless, mosaic).

      Ok, so I got all of that stuff (well, not all of it, but the bits that I needed at the time). Then I also had to get polishing compound (pink, white, green oxide) and buffing wheels (all kinds of different sizes and shapes) to make the knife look nice and shiny.

      Ok, so I got that stuff. Well, can't do a knife without a sheath, so now I've got leather (some 8 lb and some lighter stuff), leather weld (pretty much a glue), grooving tools, dye, a leather Awl, sewing needles, wax thread (I would have gone with something else, but this stuff was at least in stock), and a bunch of other miscellaneous doo-dads.

      What brought this to mind is that I realized that I don't have any rivets, snaps, or ways to set them, so it looks like I'll have to order some more stuff (which doesn't bother me, then I get to buy another blade while I'm at it).

      It's all good though. I really enjoy doing this stuff, it's a lot of fun, and I always manage to learn something new so the cost doesn't bother me much.

      PS: need to buy more masking tape as well *sigh*

    • Not much new going on

      Played some COD:4 last night, as well as Gran Turismo 5 Prologue. Both look pretty snazy on our new TV.

      I picked up a fish rod for pier or surf fishing. Maybe I'll luck out and actually catch something out of the river. I wonder if it'll have 3 eyes...

      This weekend we plan on going to visit my dad for fathers day. I don't really have a present for him so likely I'll pick him up a nice steak and some beer (the actual gift isn't built yet).

      This is the next blade blank I'm going to assemble:
      ss261.jpg

      I've got another one as well, but I can't get a picture of it. I'll post pics when I'm done, though.

      Anyway, it's after five, so I'm going home. See ya!

    • I did my part for the economy

      11 years ago

      Well, I actually did it for myself and my wife, but hey, whatever floats yer boat. Anyway, we are now the proud owners of a 37" Samsung LCD TV. It's very nice. The few PS3 games we have look awesome on it, and DVDs looks fantastic. Paid about $1300 with an HDMI cable (Those fuckers are expensive, and MonsterCable needs to go fuck themselves, I won't pay $100 for a 3 foot fuckin' cable).

      Anyway, 3 HDMI ports, PC input, digital audio, plenty of component video inputs, it simply rawks.

      We would have gone with a 40, but the 40" didn't look as good and didn't have the features we wanted. If we had gone for the features we wanted in a 40", it would have been $1600 or more. Plus, this was small enough and light enough that I was able to get it upstairs by my onesy.

      Other than that, the weekend was pretty much a lot of kicking back and relaxing. The bay was full of boaters which was fun to watch, and the weather was wonderful. I hope you all had a good weekend as well. Take care!

      Fuckers are carving up the pavement out in front of the apartment. Looks like they're pulling an all nighter (they've got generators and flood lights). Great. I can't wait to get to sleep tonight...or in the morning...or not at all.

      Cock gobblers.

      In other news, I went fishing tonight. Caught some small bass (6-8 inches) and some fairly large sunfish (which should be renamed "lazy fuckin' spine covered bastards"). No trout to be had. I need a frickin' boat.

      Tomorrow is Friday, and it's about frickin' time. Work was crazy all week. I've ordered six motherboards this week for some of our desktops (apparently we got a bad run of network adapters). To make things even better, one of the RMA boards we received has a bad thermal sensor (from a cold boot the sensor reads the processor at 128 degrees C, which is WRONG. My digital thermometer read only 30 degrees C). Dollar says the network adapter doesn't work either. Fuckers.

      This weekend the wife and I are going to spend our Eagle Shit (Tax Return) and get an LCD TV. I liked the look of these two. What do you think?

      I think you had asked earlier about the XDSC, about the feel. Get one. It is awesome. The Pearce extensions are beautiful. Makes it a perfect grip. And the thing is damn accurate. I actually shoot really well with that little 3 inch barrel.

    • Saint1900

      12 years ago

      It was funny(in a way)

      I woke up, laying next to my bed... I sat up, looked down and I saw the Makarov lying there, with the safety off... My eyes bugged out and I safed it, while thinking "WTF".

      I checked the chamber, one in there...

      What I am trying to figure out is, how the fuck did I stumble down to the woodshop, find the Makarov, shuffle back upstairs, then pass out...

      All my avatar & personal images pics are just little red exes.

      I'm wondering if my work is blocking their image server, but somehow not the rest. I was seeing (or not seeing) the same thing until they recently finished with their server upgrade...

      Just tried viewing a link separately, and I see this is the case - my work is somehow blocking only the image server, and not the rest.

      Maybe, dunno - someone asked me 'bout them...

      Just called them a .46, so I was wondering.

      The .460 is the competition for the .50 Colt (maybe it's Taurus?), right?
