        Hi Patrick,

        Unfortunately I need to reserve the dial-in lines for recognized media. You can listen to the telecon at

    Good morning all froma cold and snowy Denver. Got about a foot yesterday and I think the state is in the midst of their "Let's see how long we can ignore the roads" campaign. Driving yesterday was an experience. Glad i could take the bus this morning.

    How is everyone doing today?

      Did your shipment arrive ok yesterday? I was wondering with the weather you were having if all would be ok.

        All is good. The trek out to DIA was less than fun, but all is safe and set. Will keep you posted.

    Morning crew!

    Anyone in the market for a gently used outdoor patio table? It is in great shape other than the 18 in saw track I accidentally ripped into it as I was ripping a sheet of plywood this weekend. Lil Biddle's new bed is costing me a fortune in more ways than one.

        Looks like a great way to cut yourself. Keep the gauze and tetnus shot handy.

          Oh, you noticed the perfect spacing for little fingers too. Mrs Biddle is never going to let me live this one down.

        Nice job, Tim.

      Soooooo the sparks shooting off your saw wasn't a clue that you weren't cutting just wood? ;)

      If you want to save the table, get a piece of clear acrylic cut to fit the outer rim of the table (and a hole for the umbrella if you have one). Use clear silicone to adhere it down to the outer rim of the table frame.

        That is a GREAT idea!
        There's more to you than just pure molten secks appeal wrapped in a coating of torrid, unadulterated lu$t...

          Thanks. Doin' Good for the Hood from the Gutter – or the dumpster as Sir Bid would have you believe. ;)

        I guess my circular saw cuts aluminum pretty easy. Good idea on the acrylic rim job if I can't find a decently priced replacement. Figure with spring coming, places will have stuff on sale.

        • AleeD®@Sir Biddle

          I thought you'd pick up on the rim comment. :) It would be worth comparison shopping cuz a piece of acrylic can cost as much as a new table – depending on what you want and how long you want to take ribbing from Madame Biddle. ;)

          I missed it. I must be losing it. =(

        • Sir Biddle

          Great minds. Likely just as best to get a new table than patch it and be reminded of it.

          Jdizz – What did you miss?

          The rim job thing. I was looking for the south park clip where eric asks his mom what it is, then decided what was popping up in my searches was bordering NSFW. Funny clip
