There are lots of ways to make custom stamps, with varying degrees of difficulty. It's often a tradeoff of effort, cost and quality. This instructable demonstrates a process for using sugru and a laser-cut template to make stamps that can be highly detailed, with a minimum of effort.

Anyone familiar with FATE Core (RPG System)? I'm looking at maybe running a campaign with it, at some point, as I love [the idea of] Spirit of the Century (RPG), but not so much the setting...

“Murse, huh? You know who also carried a murse? Indiana Jones. And it looked just like this one!”I stumbled across this and laughed so hard I couldn't pass up reposting it... It might have something to do with having had a very similar conversation myself, that and the fact that Waterfields (www.sfbags.com) makes some seriously amazing stuff.

I'm looking to buy a video card for my grandfather. He's looking to play some "older" (read several years old) games, but the onboard Intel video just doesn't cut it (or even support some of the required shader functions). The PC itself is a pretty nice i5 with plenty of RAM, they just totally skipped 3d graphics.Requirements include high "bang for the buck", reasonable price and low profile slot. I can't say for sure if the PC (an HP Pavilion Slimline) has PCI Express power. A quick glance indicates that the Geforce GT 520 is common in low-profile and seems popular, but I'm looking for some opinions. Fire away.

One giant, clock; some assembly required. The electronics are complete, just have to finish up the programming and assemble the enclosure.

What a great idea. I'd totally take a 6-7 inch phone that stays in a coat pocket or on the desk, and carry this in a pocket to make calls. Wish it supported bluetooth and was host agnostic, though...
