I spy with my little eye something hawaiian...no, never mind, that's not Kelsey.

>clenches fists with Adrian monk Disneytopian Blinking Hand of Righteousness...oh yeah<

sigh....I tried to keep him answering to posts here, but he bugged out when I was busy elsewhere. :-)

Did you fall for that "Look, your shoes are untied," bit again or did you glaze over when he tried to explain the difference between a neutrino and an arduino?

by neutrino do you mean holly's weapon of choice in the artemis fowl series or some precise scientific thing

Neutrino: The neutrino is an elementary particle which holds no electrical charge, travels at nearly the speed of light, and passes through ordinary matter with virtually no interaction. Neutrinos are created as part of radioactive decay.
This decay was observed in 1896 by Henri Bacquerel, when he noted that certain atoms seem to emit electrons (a process known as beta decay). In 1930, Wolfgang Pauli proposed an explanation for where these electrons could have come from without violating conservation laws, but it involved the presence of a very light, uncharged particle emitted simultaneously during the decay. Neutrinos are produced through radioactive interactions, such as solar fusion, supernovae, radioactive decay, and when cosmic rays collide with the Earth's atmosphere.

No, being at work, I had to do some.....work, that is :-)

I did give Eric your most excellent Hawaiian-shirted Robot (and I wrote your name on it) :-) He's got a huge pile of pages now ("two inches," Eric said).

Nae worries. Just glad for you! It wouldn't be precisely just to be mad at a friend for a cool thing he got to do...

W00t! Yes, I was; thanks, Eric. Thank you (and Christy!) very much for the hospitality.

Your photographic evidence is flawed. I find no trace of said person being present there. And saying someone had to take the photos is no excuse unless your thumb is part of the picture. :)

Check out Randofo's update to the Make:SF announcement topic. He added a really embarrassing picture of me talking about my crib-mod I'ble :-/ I guess I deserve it since I didn't bother to get a good one.

Oh, I never claimed the photos were evidencesounds like you think Eric's in on the conspiracy :-)

Nope, I'm actually wearing a long-sleeved button down shirt today (it's cold).

Maybe i will bring mine over when I'm done building it!

Pretty good holographic projection of Princess Rachel. How'd they do that?

No need to ask what planet she is from. It looks like the royal robes and headdress of the Imperial Instructables homeworld.

Hehe, R2D2 has to be the world's favorite robot, second only to the Ible bot here...

only here. all the outsiders and new members dont know the ibles robot. I also noticed that R2D2 and C3PO were the only 2 characters to show up in all 6 episodes in the same form each time. (anakin changed his form in episode 3, obi-wan became a ghost in episode 4)

I do believe that's what I said. You are correct, for the most part. C3P0 not only gets completed, but at the end of Revenge of the Sith, his memory gets erased. So really only R2D2...

Look at him go! I must say though, i hope robot i'snt getting jealous with all the attention on R2-D2

tell him to print out an autograph for me!

Oh, neat! I bet Emiglio is jealous. I hope someone took his scissors away.
