    @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. :-)

                              Today, I built a machine to grind glass into an exact fifty degree miter. image [chimp.li]

                                @flashblu It is great to see this going on. I look forward to seeing the results even if I am too swamped with other projects to participate.

                                    @literary Same here. Helen definitely shares my linguistic sensibilities. It is a pleasure to listen to her talk about language.

                                      @33mhz I've been using iwantmyname recently. But I'm not sure about .bayern for that one either. :)

                                        @jextxadore Feel free to ask me anything about them. I have learned a lot about them over the last year.
