"miku" o_O?

What is your roommate drooling over a Hatsune Miku pillow in his sleep? xD
You are a light sleeper O:

I sleep like a rock, so sound it could kill me in the future. I slept through a 2:00 am fire drill in first year university -.- I'm also a teeth grinder. My ex girlfriend said I sound like sawmill. ):

Your roommate and I would get along well.

You might end up having to carve them out of wood and paint them
Alright I am thinking of making it out of cardboard, but I need to add weight to the receiver to support the heavier magazine.

What can I put inside to do so?

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

When I used to construct wooden replicas as a teenager, I'd use metal washers, bolts, or even fishing lead weights and just duct tape, screw or staple them in place for weighting.

Kind of depends on how you want to balance it?

I need a straight rod to perfectly balance it.....I am thinking of stuffing the frame with disposable wooden chopsticks to make it rigid, but that won't make it heavy enough.

Yeah, if you have a "long route through the prop" you could implant a threaded rod in it (they're at most hardware stores - cylindrical metal rods of varying diameters that are threaded).

http://www.google.com/products/catal...d=0CIQBEPMCMAM

I use them in my device for making chainmaille links (wrapping wire around the rod as it spins courtesy of a small motor). They have some decent mass.

I probably need a thicker one for the tommy gun barrel....the drum-mag foregrip version usually have a threaded rod. Can't seem to find one that thick anywhere.

Anyone know a reliable online source to check exchange rates? (USD : CAD)

I've been to 5 sites and they all give me different numbers.
$1 Canadian =
X-Rates: 1.00382
XE: 1.01012
Yahoo: 1.0099
Google: 1.01235
Bank of Canada: 1.0124

>:
It's like everyone just makes up their numbers from the top of their head.

It makes a gigantic difference when you're working with 7~8 digit figures.

The value is dependant on financial market ratings.
It will change by the minute (or millisecond I guess... ).

So a stock market site would be the way to go:
http://www.bloomberg.com/quote/USDCAD:CUR

But the rate you actually get would be dependant on your bank/broker anyway.

I thought it changes by the hour DX. Thanks
0.01 discrepancy is intolerable and not something that changes by the minute I hope XD
Err by that chart it looks like it did just skip by half a cent in a minute LOL

I use xe.com and there's a currency widget in Windows 7. Just remember, the value you actually get at a local exchange merchant will be less and *may* be a lot less if they're greedy jackasses

Anyone here familiar with plumbing? :S Above our kitchen is the 2nd floor bathroom and the pipe in the ceiling of the kitchen (clean shower water) leaked for the 3rd time in the past 2 years. Each time my landlord hires a plumber to replace the joint. But this third time is just so wtf. How can a new connection leak in less than a year. Most last decades. What's causing this? :S

If he's using the same plumber - there's the answer :P

(its likely the leak is further up the pipe and just leaking down... or it may be something separate like poor sealing where water splashes and the water is just making its way down between the floors/walls.

What happens when you run out of PM space and you receive a new message? Do you simply not get it or does it start deleting?

You simply don't get the message -- the sender gets informed that the recipient's box is full.

There's several ways to archive messages to your personal computer if you want to keep them for reference. Then just delete the ones you don't care about from your inbox. You have a count limit on your Sent box as well.

I realized the reason why Kio sucks as of this moment is because unlike flit and asemu, he doesn't have a badass ally named woolf!

Not even close. You're in the average age I would say.

Seijisensei is officially the oldest here at 61. Vexx is probably second......others include Endless Soul (43) and TRL (37). Age concentration is around the 20+ region because it has been quite some time since the forum is around and the regulars are slowly growing up.
