It's been a while, but just a note to tell you that my website dedicated to
workbench design and construction has been updated recently. The address for
this site is:
The site was originally created after I completed my second workbench. A
modern European style workbench. I did it to show one person's thought
process in deciding upon a design, refining the design for personal
preferrences and the building process. I also include information on my
first bench based upon Tom Caspar's "Workbench in a Weekend".
Some of the additons to the site are:
construction issues (Please join in!)
Anyway, the site is in no way commercial. It's just for fun.
Good looking site- I love clean design.
On clicking the links, however, I found:
1.) The link labelled "Rick Manderscheid very thorough site on
designs" is dead, and
2.) The link for the "Workbench FAQ" goes to a document that hasn't
been edited in seven years and has it's own share of dead links.
Other than that though, nice job!
Naaah, since my college degree is dated 1982, I've done a fair amount of
direct octal and hex entry. But I didn't want to go there.... <g>
I heard Bill Joy speak at the Smithsonian in Washington DC many years ago,
the guy who wrote vi over a weekend (according to legend). <g>
I see your EMACS and raise you BRIEF, by UnderWare (I still have the
OTOH, never once did I lose a line of code or data to a hard disk crash when
I used punch cards. <g>
A line drawn diagonally across the top of the deck helps put them back in
the right order if they're dropped. DAMHIKT.
Well, I did much prefer vi (Elvis was a handy later variant) to EMACS.
BRIEF was so much the better, although I admit when I first got it I set
all the key mappings to the vi defaults. But nowadays, more often
than not, it's ... .... .... uh, it is so hard to do this....... Wordpad.
Ok, I said it. Yes, I'm ashamed. But laziness is the hallmark of a CS
weenie, eh? Whatever's at hand, wot?
Market yourself better... When I was a private in the Army they thought I
was lazy. When I became an officer they considered me efficient. <g>
Nothing wrong with WordPad. On all my computers that's the association for
.RTF instead of Word. It's actually better than Word when pulling info from
web sites. WordPad just pastes the information, Word attempts to maintain
all the links & formats.
Very good site. Your timing is dead on as I am about to finalize the design
of a new workbench.
Thanks for the post and all of your effort.
