I'm cleaning out the garage as soon as it is warm enough (I really really
hate cold hands) and have a couple of projects in mind that might turn
one of these it a real asset. And if I can run it from a little Atom based
netbook running Linux, it'll be an easy thing to get dedicated to that.
I've got to fix my lathe, I ate a drive cog and belt by being impatient,
but it's time to either get everything back online, or sell it all.
It's 2013, I just created a C Corp to do some things and it needs some
expenses/losses... Oh yeah, it has to MAKE money first.. But hey... it
gives me incentive. Laughing.
Wish I had never sold teledildonics.com to a local polyurethane company...
