Guys, I have an idea that will potentially save your life/sanity:

In your work area (garage, backyard, whatever), keep a big pile of old electronics, ceramic dishware, anything breakable.

Then when you spend 3 hours working on a gun only to have something go wrong, go beat the hell out of the pile of crap nearby instead of something you'll miss (your gun).


I can't tell you how much crap I've broken when something went horribly wrong. Or how far I've thrown stuff into the woods.

It really helps to have stress-relief electronics and a baseball bat/crowbar around.

On that note, I might as well post my various ideas I am planning....

EDIT: LOL Fnord, I like your isp rank afterwards... Are you hinting at breaking your computer?

A few other people posted their SpeedTest results from colleges and such, so I figured I'd have to show them T1-line kids up with my super fast 26.4k modem.
(but yeah, I was just trying to be funny/stupid)

That is my actual result by the way, not a fake one.
