A reminder to all of our friends around the world that today is International Wear Star Wars Share Star Wars day!
So come on folks, put on your best (or worst) Star Wars or other Sci-Fi apparel and show the world that geeks are awesome and come in all shapes, sizes, genders, and colours.
No, I promise you that moving back into your parent's basement is NOT a requirement, but if that's where you are, we want to see you come up out of the dark and show your geeky pride!
As quoted from the Huffington Post article below:
Here's how you can celebrate:
1. Wear something Star Wars or science fiction-related on December 19.
2. Donate a Star Wars or science fiction toy to a child in need (but please put a post-it note on the new, unwrapped toy specifying that it can go to a girl or a boy; otherwise, these traditional "boy toys" will be given only to boys). You can bring the toy to a hospital, a shelter or drop it off with any charitable organization collecting toys.
3. Join Wear Star Wars Share Star Wars on Facebook! And participate on Twitter with #WearStarWars2014
Enjoy International Wear Star Wars Day and may the Force Be With You.
I for one will be wearing a Star Wars t-shirt under my regular work uniform as I can't wear street clothes for my job, but maybe later I'll pull a Clark Kent and rip open the shirt to reveal the Old Republic Logo underneath. Hahaha.

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?
Jun 23, 2017 16:37:26 GMT -5
ARKM: Some use that. I could not get successful results with it but others have.
Jun 23, 2017 16:47:16 GMT -5
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.
