    He traveled into the future to get his hat. Nice nouveau pirate style.

    Hello! My name is: glx 😊

    Welcome to Eurobricks, GLX. Isn't GLX a Volkswagen model trim designation?

    Printing and laser cutting replacement cloth sails

    Very nice. Have you considered cutting them with a drag knife? Laser leaves burn marks.

    Welcome to Eurobricks, coinoperator.
  6. One of the property of ABS plastic is that it shrinks as it cools down from a melted to solid state. If it doesn't cool down evenly, then it warps. The bigger the part, the more chances of that happening and more noticeable it is. If the piece is unuseable for the purpose you bought it for, contact the store and/or LEGO.

    Great little build. Note to self, avoid family hour.

    A big hello from Oregon

    Nice. Please keep in mind our max pic size is 1024x768 as per site guidelines.
  9. I desoldered the cable from my burnt out LEGO motors (from too much Great Ball Contraptioning), then I crimped some Dupont connectors on the ends. It works pretty good connecting to header pins.

    [REVIEW] 10268 - Vestas Wind Turbine

    Thanks for the great review. This set should have come out sooner then we wouldn't had to Bricklink parts to clone our own for a train show last month. I think a wind farm is easier to plunk down that a coal power plant. There are also off-shore wind farms. Has anyone try to make the turbine turn and follow people as they walk by using Mindstorm or some other solution to detect and track people?

    Smugmug acquires Flickr

    Our LUG has a Flickr group. Most of our members with over 1000 photos are already PRO paying Flickr users. The change isn't that big of an impact for us except I have 1096 photos. UGH.

    Washing in Dishwasher

    Great. Did you take it apart to check the insides?

    GBC General Discussion

    Standards are important if you plan to connect your GBC module to others at events. If you're doing your own thing, then not so much.

    [W-OKT] Drama over a dress

    Nice house. Good details. Marry wisely so you don't end up over drinking.

    Technic Pub

    Photobucket was free for a long time, then it changed to paid for deep-linking. Any service provider can change. You get statistics. With free I see I have 3M views on my photostream but I don't have any other details. You get discounts with Adobe and others. You also get a "PRO" icon next to your username. I was using free Flickr when their limit was 200 photos. That kinda forced me to post only the best photo of the MOC to Flickr and the rest to Brickshelf. I used Photobucket for non-MOC LEGO photos. Now I use postimg.org for that. Flickr and Brickshelf worked well for me posting MOCs on EB. When Brickshelf is down, people can still see the linked Flickr image and vice versa when Flickr sometimes does that Bad Panda thing.
