But what when you (your life mate) start in a wife zone... And end up elsewhere?! Worse yet... when your wife (meaingn me) strats in the fun zone and ends up in the crazy zone?!

MMMUUUUAAAAHAHHHHHAAA, like I care. ;)

#171532 Zombie's Ultimate X-COM Collection

"Over $100 in value" indeed. Well, I'll say one thing, the abundant red glow behind the alien's head is immediately noticeable as an unusual feature amongst such XCOM 2 promotional posters.

And then you go stratospheric - a shareware version of X-COM?! Posted Image Man, oh man, if that floppy is still readable that's one crazy bloomin' heck of a find you've got there! Posted Image

Google should put POI on their map :P


#171392 Zombie's Ultimate X-COM Collection

X-COM, Warcraft II, C&C, Duke Nukem 3D, Descent, Heroes of Might and Magic... that's some list, Zombie. And it's always fun to revisit some of the old system requirements: 2Mb Hard Disk. :P

Definitely appears to be in great condition overall, so congrats on your latest acquisition!

You continue to astound with your ability to find hidden gems and I, for one, am glad you have persevered in your efforts throughout all these years. Rock on! :cool:

Speaking of which, one day you should consider making a documentary about your collection. It is worth it, for posterity. Should you not feel like arranging it yourself you could always get someone like MetalJesusRocks to eventually pay you a visit as he often showcases classic collections.

That kind of visibility can be beneficial even, as there are people who may be willing to donate some of their stuff to you seeing just how invested and knowledgeable you are in all things X-COM. :)

You are right on the money, Zombie, as a pitcure proves once again well worthy of a thousand words.

Your calculations for row and column screw hole spacing went from mental projection to real tabletop. I'm satisfied with the prep work you underwent which will clearly pay off next, upon install.

The top looks yummy milky right now, so don't let any cats come near it to mess it up with their paws. Posted Image

This is twice unnatural - a lively Zombie with a steady hand on the caulk gun. ;)

You're veritably pampering the side door to the store at this point too.

As for that new window, it may be just my impression, but the surrounding wood frame hints at some age (see lower right corner). Something for another Fall perhaps.

From painting to carpentry and back. Thanks for the inside scoop, Zombie. ;)

I must say, that impromptu use of a bucket to achieve a curved edge worked out great, given your execution (and sanding).

Also, that shiny finish on the plywood really did make it look very nice, but it being a work table beauty is certainly not a priority and it would only reveal wear more promptly.

Them Lexan panes ended up looking mighty fine, Zombie. And, for all your troubles, you're now fittingly rewarded with an abundance of pleasant natural light.

Rewinding slightly to your prior status report - turning it over and over in my mind, I'm compelled to agree you were right to put the screws on.

Do notice, though, you having provided comfy holes to fully dig in, how self-centered they are now, brazenly drawing the eye in the frame like that.

Therefore, I recommend reinstating more even treatment post-haste. ;)

It sure is about time those lexan panes prove no longer to be pains and get fit in, Zombie. ;)

Pretty tight work reducing those gaps with the moldings you've prepared. I doubt you shall feel much of a breeze at all on the inside from now on.

Thumbs up on the side door paint job as well - looks darn smooth! :thumbsup:

You're still doing this at work, for the benefit of the employer, right? In the spare time you find? How the hell does one get an employee like you, dammit?!?1?!?1'1'!!'1'1'!!?1'

I hope your work is valued, because all I get from people I work with is "I work for five, while everybody else is scratching their crotch!". Coming from people for whom I KNOW have very little to do and are able (and have done so) to bitch around like crazy when they get a little something to do...
