Doh - any chance to make something like this available to the general public? I would *love* to be able to intersperse pictures and text, especially in forum topicss, where we don't have the option of breaking things up into multiple steps like in the Instructables...

You can attach images to the end of the topic, but you can't interleave them with text the way fungus did...

Hehe - don't worry, urbandictionary.com has all sorts of weird and just plain wrong definitions. Kinda like a wiki where nobody ever edits somebody else's entries...

Actually, I *did* find a number of pages like this one, describing a dololly as a thingamajig/ doohickey/whachamacallit. Pretty easy to see where the guy on urbandictionary got his euphemism from. I strongly doubt that's a common usage of the word though...
