    I was thinking the same thing. Maybe he's busted his keyboard:D

    They say a picture is worth a 1000 words so at this moment we are owed 12,000 words. Better get typing my old mate...lol

    Edit: subbed, I just know it's going to be good.

    I can fill in some of the text: "Ahh, It's so warm here, I'm working outside. Look at my green grass. I have a blanket here, but I don't need it to keep warm. I'll use it as a drop cloth.":lol:

    Optix... I'm guessing hardware store clear plexi? Good to see you dressing up another full-atx case.

    Blah blah blah yada yada yada. :hehe:

    Summer in Florida stops me but for now you will have to suffer.

    Maybe it's a Filimon tribute work log.

    Art supply. Extruded instead of cast 'cause I need to make all the proper mistakes.

    It's modding weather here and I'm taking advantage of it.

    +rep for whoever guesses what case I'm using.

    Yes. What was your clue that this was an Advanced and not a Basic 690 II?

    Yay! Another project from slipperyskip!
    I am not really sure what's going on, but as a suck-up fan I have already sub'd

    Just out of curiosity: I am a subscriber to "The wood Whisperer" channel in you tube. I've asked Marc why he doesn't make a casemod out of wood and pointed your work and green sabbath as good examples.

    He answered me that he is a great fan of your job :D

    Thanks John. Welcome to the Machine. You're going to go far.

    Cheater. :D :thumb:

    Thanks Yemerich! I got to meet Green Sabbath last year. I wish he would come back around.

    It's either a chicken coop or a lobster trap. I haven't figured out which yet. :)

    A Usonian is someone from the eighth moon of Tachyon (the one in the second quadrant NOT the fourth).

    -or-

    An architectural style created by Frank Lloyd Wright. He was the other Wright brother. Wilbur, Orville and Frank.

    I guess you were thinking it was the one the fourth quadrant. Silly me for assuming everyone knew. My bad.

    You have been mulling FLW for an age. We discussed him once upon a time.

    Yes. This has been a long-term planning thingy. I have a personal connection because the public library I practically lived in was an FLLW-designed building. I really like his Usonian and Prairie-style home designs. I'm going to attempt to emulate some of my favorite FLLW design details hopefully without it coming out looking like a dollhouse. lol
