I don't care if this isn't "contributing to the NIC" but I believe it must be said, and will give many people a heads up.
I just got back from the hospital because I had been using a dremel to cut something off of my longshot. being stupid I was not WEARING EYE PROTECTION. As I began to dremel off the top rail, a piece of sharp, hot, plastic, flung at me and hit me square in the eye, while the dremel was on it's 30k RPM setting. Luckily I am expected to be okay, but I can not see out of my left eye, and my vision is predicted to not come back for a few days.
Everybody, these accidents CAN HAPPEN TO YOU.
Use eye protection, and wear any other protective gear you can while modding.
This little hobby of ours can be dangerous, and I highly suggest that everybody take this post of mine into consideration.
Off topic: I just realized, it's my 2 year birthday here. What a great way to celebrate it...
