    Default For D&D nerds - Crossed Axes

    Me being one of them. My wife was laughing at me when I told her I was a dungeon master when I was a teenager. The age of monochrome screens and 16 kilobit program memory.

    Amazing how far we have come in 5 short years (...okay 35 years).

    Wasn't exactly sure where to put this so put it on its own.

    mpc is designer 2 so including axe pattern and dice pattern separately. The skull I have shared on multiple projects.

    You have a lot of learning years behind you I bought my frist computer 25 yrs ago didn't know what I was doing, paid $1,500 for a gateway, two years later it had so many viruses I had the black screen of death on it, it cost to much to get it fixed that it went to the dump I have not had one until I bought this one to use the carvewright.

    Thanks Suzanne.

    I over estimated. I just looked it up. My first computer was a Commodor 64 with a whopping 8 bit processor. (1982)

    lol. Its hard to believe I have lived already an entire lifetime. Nostalgia only since I have 2 laptops, my kindle, two desktops and my trusty smart phone.

    My first computer was the Vick20 (only sold in Canada I think) that you had to plug in a small tv set. Only MSDOS and one game but I loved it.

    Radio Shack Color computer. 4K ram. loaded operating system from an audio tape. Then games or apps could be loaded from audio tape also. It could take 10 minutes or more to load a game. That is if there wasn't an error loading. The volume control on the audio tape deck had to be set just perfectly or it wouldn't work. Floppy disc drive became available later but was more expensive than the computer, $600 range, if I remember correctly. Those were the days! LOL

    Mine was the Radio Shack TRS1000. I paid the price to add a floppy drive and later down the road when they came out with a HD I added that too.

    My first puter was a timex brand that hooked to a cassette player to store data. Bought it in 1983, I think. I wrote a program to balance the checkbook. Expensive calculator 😊.... Kind of like the expensive food thawer called a microwave....

    Oscar, you have gotten great in making patterns, keep up the good work.

    For anyone that may want to know, my web site is back up and running again, had to tweak some modules, one being paypal because of SSL issues.
    Using Designer 1.187, STL importer, Center line, conforming vectors, scanning probe/PE, and the ROCK chuck.
