  1. Think very fucking carefully before making your 17th post here.
  2. I'd see if there are any comparisons out there for the Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio. It's the closest thing I've found to macbook build quality and I have multiple friends that run AutoCAD on it - I just don't have direct experience. It games just fine though.
  3. Here's to hoping that you've had a great day!
  4. General rule of thumb (that I've been taught anyway) is that to the maximum extent possible finish all sides of the piece the same. The hope is that it helps to avoid warping/twisting/cracking from uneven moisture absorption or loss. Regardless, it looks great.
  5. I’ll be more than a little curious to get the hard-core (or semi hard core) audiophile opinion of how these work. If they work as advertised and as intended, my read is that they’ll basically replace about 90% of the standard audio chain. Have a nice preamp? Don’t really need it any more. Nice DAC? Nope, don’t need that either. Amp? Shit, what is the point of all those McIntosh lights anymore… Brave new world if they work.
  6. Take a breath and stop issuing orders when you are not empowered to do so. I see nothing wrong with the posts here.
  7. I think we're done with this particular asshat.
  8. Thanks for granting permission? You think you have conditions to the suggestion that you should go elsewhere? Your "if you are a man" bullshit is tiresome. If you think we're interested in your 1,000+ word missives about what you think, what you won't stand behind, what you will, etc., etc., ad nauseum, you are mistaken. No one asked you to join here or told we don't have a ToS because we don't need one.
  9. It's been a week and I am truly sorry to be late to this party. Happy belated birthday, Ari.
  10. Some people were whining in another thread that the Moderators here don't ever do any moderating. So I merged the two birthday threads.
  11. Making Mother's Day dinner for my family, my parents, and the in-laws. Brisket and ribs are looking good. This was earlier this morning.
  12. A very happy birthday to you, Shelly! I saw a math meme the other day and couldn't help but think of my favorite mathematician.
  13. I don't see anything here particularly worthy of moderation. Are there some posts that are approximately 10x longer than necessary? Sure, but that's nothing new.
  14. 1. I know this is a personal preference thing but I do not care for their chosen aesthetic. 2. Straight to cloud 7... What the? I think they meant cloud 9 but it still would be a bizarre statement to make about a headphone. The internets do have some references to cloud 7 but whatever. 3. I'm really hoping Justin didn't write this ad copy.
  15. If that continues, two words, Heated Clothing. While I'm generally with Steve and prefer heat to cold there is something truly awful about sitting and getting colder by the minute.
  16. Agreed. I especially like the comments that make a play out of T Bone.
  17. There's an edited reference for me? I wonder if the forum software is hiding them currently for non-admins.
  18. I think you'll figure it out, but there's definitely a learning curve. It was one of the reasons that I went with the Carbide3D product, so that there was the option of idiot-friendly software but not so locked in that if I somehow get more advanced you can run whatever you want. Figuring out the CAD/CAM interface does take a little time but I see that they've got their +VCarve software so maybe that's relatively user friendly? Start small, work your way up, I'm sure you'll do fine.
  19. The extractor will certainly work, us poor people just use a shop vac which is plenty. The first hurdle is just having a mount for the hose attached to the spindle. Looks like you'll get a free dust boot when you get it all registered which should be perfect and the touch plate is a game changer too. And if you can get an upgraded proper spindle life will be a lot more pleasant. I'm isolated enough in the house that running open frame with the banshee router isn't impossible but I'd really like to get it enclosed and toned down a bit so that night time operation might be an option.
  20. Not sure if you're already planning on chip extraction/suction but I'd highly recommend it. Also, if you can build an enclosure to help attenuate noise you'll be happier for it. I haven't managed an enclosure yet but the router is loud AF and I'm pretty sure we're running the same model. It's one thing to live with it for a few minutes during traditional router operation, it's another thing entirely to run it like that for hours straight.
