Yup, been quiet lately. I've been working on a couple of IT projects. All our phone lines go through MagicJack for Business. It has been costing us a small fortune each month just to have scammers and bill collectors tie up our lines. Hell, one company was calling up to 60 times a day!!! We decided […]

Well, I have to say being a HAM has come in handy beyond Rag Chewing and listening for bad weather. I was merrily printing along on my 3D printer when it started to throw errors. A little bit of futzing around and I found that the bed wasn't heating up. So here I am ready to contact the company and […]

Finally finished the Glock 17. I used files from TWO different Glock prints from Thingiverse. This one took quite a bit of fiddling around to get things to mesh together correctly. Hopefully the last mag printing now will fit right and activate the slide and barrel correctly.

Thar she is, all painted and mounted. Ain't she a beauty?
Another fun little dark humor project.
While I've been working on the "Blooper" I whipped up a little sumptin' sumptin' to to dress up my M4. Next step is to prime and paint it.

I know I had designed the display stand for the "Blooper" but when I showed my Dad (Who's a crusty old VietNam SoG vet) he got a real charge out of it. So I'm going to do up another one, get some more Rock White and finish the display stand. Then I'll give it to him for his Garage/Man […]

I found a really neat game that's a great way to destress and have lots of fun. It's called "Hot Dogs, Horseshoes and Hand Grenades". It is essentially a VR firing range with your various traditional targets and in some scenarios Hot Dogs as the OpFor. There is even a Town called […]

We picked up Nikki's monitors and our chairs from my folks in Georgia last week. Her dual monitor stand came in today. We mounted her monitors and got her workstation setup. Here she is hard at "work". She even made a nice little hanging spot for her VR setup. She's so spoiled! […]
