I realized tonight that the info posted about the chatbox was no longer valid and thought I should do a little update, refresher and reminder here.
Remember, you do not need to do anything special to use the chat, once you log into the forum you are then logged into chat automatically.
When posting links in the chat, remember to use the "url" code in order to make the link clickable. Please remember that the standard code of conduct for posting in the chat is the same as posting in a regular thread. This is a family site, keep it clean.
Lastly, if you post "Hello" in the chat and no one says hi back, don't take it personally, a lot of us log into the forum and forget to keep an eye out to see if someone is down there talking. Sometimes it's hard to keep track of when you're busy reading some uber cool post about the newest saber build.
Most of all, have a good time folks!

ARKM: *waves hand* "I'm not the slacker you're looking for"

ARKM: Sadly no. Well, that's not entirely true. I did finish writing it but did not perform the steps and take pics of said steps.

ARKM: So it's like "Step 5: Using the high temperature temp, tape the paper with the design on it onto the metal part to be etched."

ARKM: ... but there's no Pic 4.

profezzorn: from other things I've read it's just PNP blue with some heat and pressure applied, right?

ARKM: Some use that. I could not get successful results with it but others have.

profezzorn: so what do you use?

ARKM: I personally use glossy magazine pages. I just rip a page out of a magazine and put it in the printer. The pages have to be the right thickness for the printer though. Too thin and they rip in the printer.
