    Combating Piracy By Narrowing Theatrical Release Window

    Were you really upset that all of the blockbuster video stores closed as Netflix gained in popularity? If they offered same day release of new films, I'd pay full price just for the convenience of not having to drive to a crappy theater and deal with annoying patrons. It's not about...

    PayPal Tells Buyer To Destroy Violin Instead Of Returning It

    Paypal's policy has always been to protect the buyer, not the seller. While they are generally fine for smaller transactions, the lesson here is use an escrow service for anything valuable because people are dishonest and Paypal will never side with the seller in any legal dispute.

    etching work

    I love it. If you want to cut out something like that in the future, you can do it by flipping the pattern and cutting from the inside of the panel using a thin cut off wheel. For curved lines, only cut through the metal enough so you can keep a thin clean line showing on the outside face. From...

    window etching

    I favor sandblasting. However, since I've moved, I've lost access to such equipment. For my most recent case, I tried frosted glass spraypaint. I had masked it all off and cut out the area I wanted frosted with an exacto. The end result was a bit spotty and uneven. I went over the whole thing...
