General Questions / Re: 125B-2 stomp switches
« on: Today at 09:01:34 AM »
I don't have the measurements, but you don't have a lot of choice in the case of a 125b in portrait.... Basically you have to take the screw beds into account, and have the switches angled if you don't!

Cleganebowl was massively underwhelming for me.  I was a little worried when the eye gouging started, but, other than that... although it was nice to see the zombie eye stab trope inverted.

One of the best scenes this season was Bronn threatening both Tyrion and Jaime with the crossbow.  *That* actually felt like it had some drama and danger to it.  Not much else around that held close to the tension of that one scene.

I felt the final episode was a bit too neat.  Pod in the kingsguard, all those little ends, et al.  Still, it was better than the last hour of the LOTR trilogy.

The opening credit sequence actually gave most of the story away.  There's a bunch of blue tiles running from the wall, and they go through the first city (where the kid got stuck to the wall), and stop at Winterfell, going no futher.  Then, they have a scorpion aimed at a dragon in a hallway.  Dead giveaways imo.

What are you using for an enclosure?

Gudday all,

Just wondering what people's thoughts on GOT, and this last season specifically.

Possible unpopular opinion:  The last episode was always going to be flat.

Because I'm an awesome guy, I found his link to the build doc.

The person to ask would be Brejna.  He does the Kastle "brand" iirc.

I used this in my Beast Mode.  This layout can be made quite a bit smaller if you take out the second row and you're willing to wire the resistor offboard on an LED and the grounds to wherever.

I'm sorta stunned that you'd donate a recto to anybody.....

Uh, birthday cards would only add to the expense. You have to buy those too.

I get them from the local opshop for cents in the dollar.  They're not all birthday cards.  Some are "Congratulations on your engagement/child/divorce", which makes it a bit more interesting for me.

Put the pbc in a birthday card, send that in an envelope.

I once did. Got reasonably far into the campaign, then in a mission I hit the production limit for the number of buildings I could build and haven't touched it ever since. I'm a huge turtle player so I like to build more fortifications and gun turrets then the Maginot line.

My general strategy for Warcraft 2 was to build anti air towers out from my central base constantly.  Each tower was covered by two or more. If I was feeling like a bit of fun I would build a cannon tower and hedgehog it with AA.  Wasn't hard to do, basically had a peon working on expansion covering the routes to any mines and whatnot.  Half the map would be dotted with towers.

I also became a huge fan of the Wing Commander games, well, III and IV at least, as III was my first exposure and compared to III and IV the older ones were basically unplayable.

WC1 came out on a budget label in the mid 90's and came with all the hard copy maps, posters, books and I played it to death.  Moved onto WCIII when it came out, finished that, but I failed at any WC after that.

Yeah, we had many LAN sessions around AoE2, KKnD, Total Annilation, Warcraft 2.  Duke3d, Xwing Vs Tie Fighter, Quake 2... all good fun.
