I promised JBÂ that I would add a post tonight, “with art or something,” because this page lacks content. Actually this was predicated by the fact that my web hosting plan is ending so I need to renew. This seems to cost a lot, when I think of how much this site has done for me over the last two years. Then I realize that for about 20 of those months I left the site blank and I realize that I’m just a doofus.
So, for your entertainment, I have captured and sketched the elusive Garjubble, a chubby little fantasy fish of the warm shallow seas.
In more disturbing news, I was about to buy some copper sheetÂ (to attempt to make something Steampunk-esque) and discovered that it is being stolen from local craft stores, so I had to ask at the back for them to bring the stash of copper out from the storage area.
That definitely seems like something from a novel.
Steampunkery will be in the works even without the copper (I am too cheap at this time, due to buying my web hosting, see above. And I bought a cabinet, while we’re at it.); I will just resort to making it “copper colored” instead of “copper covered”.Â Oh, also I just discovered theÂ exciting and informativeÂ contents of Instructables. I named myself Nickleplate there, to further confuse the fact that I use too many online names.Â Â
Also I have decided that Doctor Gestalt is just too masculine to use from here on out,Â so that blog is not likely to be resuscitated with that name.
