I know what you mean. ^^ I have a job that is basically all just waiting for a guy to drive me around, then I fix computers. It pays well, and it's fun, but it's kind of boring. Luckily, I get time in the car to draw schematics and stuff. And cheers to you, sir. ^^
Speaking of schematics, a little tip to ye who are building your own shooters: always draw schematics before you build. I even write myself little instructions on exactly what I have to do in order to build something. It's just better than having to memorize how to build something, then realizing you screwed up later.
Also, I got the solenoid assembly today. I will build the cartridge assembly when I get the time to go buy the parts for it. Still can't find my camera, nor can I find the upload cord to my sister's camera
Makes me angry that I can't find anything. Oh well. I'll get the pictures up as soon as I can.
