    @jessicadennis Oddly, my wife uses her talking-to-kitty voice to talk to children too. And I sometimes find myself following suit without thinking about it. :)

      @jessicadennis Thanks for mentioning me in the podcast, btw. It was all worth it to hear your tone of voice when talking about the little odd bot. The way your voice changes when talking about cute things is like how my wife has a talking-to-kitty voice.

        @jessicadennis I feel like we need to form a 'Totem Forever' and 'Bot Feet Freedom' fan club. :)

          @jessicadennis Tell Anna that she can tap any level to replay it. So if she taps the 1 on the level select screen, she can relive the beginning of Odd Bot Out. Also, cute little feet! <3<3<3<3 :-)

            @rabryst Haha. Best April Fools joke ever! @jussipekonen

              @matthewmspace OTOH, there is a lot of proximity to April 1st.

                @matthewmspace This is a great idea. Except for the possibility of kids. I can see a five year old walking through the house and pressing all of the dash buttons...

                  @bazbt3 @cgiffard Take a look at this company. They make great stuff for cheap. Also, some stuff they make is very expensive. Look for their aluminum extrusions, though.

                    @bazbt3 @cgiffard Nonono. You need to buy the grown up form. It is called t-slot aluminum extrusion. With rods of this stuff and connectors you can make anything.

                      @jessicadennis Tell Anna that she has a typo in her bio. I think there are too many 'r's in emigre. Also, I like both of your bios. Informative, but entertaining. A good balance.

                        @bazbt3 @cgiffard It turns out that a cradle that is 100 degrees is just about ideal for minimizing glare from an overhead light reflected onto cameras at the sides. So each side needs to be 50 degrees to make that angle.

                          @cgiffard Yes. I am pretty sure. When I buy one of my own, it will definitely be one with a diamond wheel.

                            @cgiffard Nope. I don't want to test such a proposition on purpose.

                              @cgiffard All of these wet glass grinders use diamond grinding wheels. Oddly, I read that it feels smooth to the touch and isn't nearly as dangerous as woodworking sanders and grinders that can take a hand off.

                                @cgiffard I haven't tried to polish afterwards. For this purpose, I don't think that it matters as long as it isn't sharp. It will show up as a black line in the gutter no matter what.

                                  @fields Yes. I tend to avoid a new site like the plague unless they have a clear pricing and options page that I can look at.

                                    @cgiffard Here is a picture of the finished miter. It looks pretty perfect. I think the line is just ever so slightly off from parallel with the opposing edge. But for the book scanner, it is close enough. image [chimp.li]

                                      @redqueencoder Bed forts are awesome. I will never be sad if I tune into a tech podcast and hear about bed forts.

                                        @cgiffard I have begun making book scanner kits. Let me know if you want in on the preorder. :-)
