Right on Ugly! Thank you.

Do you mind if I ask how you came up with it? old tomes of wisdom? a jesuit hiding in your closet? downhill from here.... I'll stop.

But I am curious as I might do more of these in the future.

Thanks again.
Chris

Yeah I know. I haven't a clue about tenses, etc... I was hoping there was an ex seminarian or the like on here who could just whip this out. (pun sort of intended) Oh well, all in good fun. If I cant get accurate, I'll just go with whatever sort of sounds grand. It is going to be engraved in thin br...

Thanks UD, I will change up the first phrase. Thats the kind of stuff I need to know (well not really..., but in the interest of doing this with authenticity[chuckle]) Solum was what I got from babelfish for the word "only" it might mean alone however. Which would put a twist on the meaning. "alone,...

Any Latin scholars out there?

OK, simple enough. Designing a grand seal for a piece of art. Eagles, sheaves of wheat, eyes on pyramids, the whole nine... But, ... What's a grand seal without a motto? My motto: "always in the shit, only the depth changes" So far via the web translators I've gotten: "semper est in excretio, solum ...

Happy this thread got resurrected as it was a fun read. Dont know if any of the OP's are still reading but I thought I'd throw out my story as this thread made me think back. I was a kid in FLorida in a boating/scuba diving family. Changing in and out of wetsuits, showering from solar showers on the...

Nice... Rodi: That DC multi channel timer from solar-electric was similar to the best options I have found so far, but thanks for the link, it is a little cheaper. At first glance it seems the timer would be the better option. the more I think about it, what I would want in a practical/ideal world, ...

I prefer Ukrainians, as they too are free standing (at least as of '91) but they aren't quite as tall.

Easy to use + cheap light sensor / timer switch for 12v?

OK this is silly automation overkill, but I just have to play around with this and if it worked, would be oh so cool. I am bringing a deep cycle battery/solar charger setup this year for a 12v power system. I am going to be running mostly EL wire/LEDs and a homemade bucket swamp cooler. What I am ho...

Take this with a grain of salt, but I thought I'd throw it out there, because your post seemed really earnest and I empathized. I am going for the first time this year as well. My wife (of 10 years) is decidedly MEH. Not about me going, but about how cool/fantastic/amazing I think this will be. She ...

Hi Sarah, I've actually been in touch with Kiwi (Chris Hankins) of MEGATROPOLIS, and think I have a pretty good project in mind now. Though they are not local, we have come up with a set of pieces that are both right up my alley, and easily transportable. But I'm always eager to hear of cool ideas, ...

Thanks for the inspirational photos Masho. I do have some fun stuff I've made which I can definately bring. I guess my reason to post was to see if there was anyone in the area doing a project that might be in need of some help. That way I could both contribute and get the benefit of some more exper...
