i been quiet lately.

Lots going on in my life, most of my online time lately has been shopping for xmas. For all that time spent shopping i did terribly. oh well. people know i love em. consumerism sucks.

Been thinking about putting together a new computer since I finally found a game that made mine act slow. After researching all the bits and pieces I wanted, I changed my mind. I need to stop playing so many damn computer games anyway. Plus I just got a PS2, that can be my gaming outlet for the time being. Once halflife2 comes out, then I'll probably upgrade the 'ole cpu so that I can play it, but I'll wait for that.

I have a bunch of projects that need space, and I'm just waiting till I have space to enact these projects. I want to build an arcade machine, I've always wanted one.
I also want to make the front door of my house circular, a la hobbit doors. I've worked out how to do it even, with a functional central doorknob and all. I can't wait.
Also have a couple ideas floating around my head for nice functional furniture. mmm... space...

I want to catch up with and old friend, and an even older friend. I should be able to contact both of them. I have a phone number and e-mail for one, and the other one's mom and my mom are still close, so I can find him via that route. I just need to quit being such a wus and do it.

the end.

I thought about the central doorknob thing, but wouldn't it require a great deal of mechanical leverage that is not supplied by a knob of that size? Some doors I've experienced with shoddily installed weatherstripping have hard-to-turn knobs, and I can't imagine that having to move a 2-foot bolt would ease matters any.

Anyway, good luck with doors.

well if you think about it... hmm. I'll have to draw pictures.
The only thing you need to do is extend the bolt a couple feet. As long as it's well lubricated it'll move just fine.
Go with deadbolts instead of a knob lock, that frees up a lot of fiddly mechanics.
It's totally doable. :o)

Of course it is... I mean, I've seen itty-bitty Hobbits do it, so big bad Fred should have no problem, right?
