Happy New Year to everyone here at DC.  It's been a pleasure spending the last year with you and I look forward to 2018.  I hope it will bring us all some pleasant surprises.

For the new year I like to clean up my PC a bit.  I created some new full drive image backups, and now I'm doing some folder and file organization.  Nice to start the new year clean and organized.

One of my new year's resolutions is to finally use my table saw.

That's a big step, you might want to ease into it by starting with the chair saw.

The jig's up! You're a bit of a hack but I'm sure you'll be coping… in some crummy joint.

I didn't peg him for being a hack, but you had to chisell away that layer of veneer...

That your actions not always appear above board?

Tenon looked across the room and saw Tooth wave madly at him.
He waved back with a small wave of his little finger - a microwave.

Tooth immediately felt himself warm to Tenon.

Meanwhile, Tenon saw that the band had stopped playing and had left the stage, to be replaced by bits of stringy rubber.
It was a rubber band.

Target, meanwhile, thought he had espied a different kind of band, and, on closer inspection realised that the word "band" might have an elastic quality.

That's a bit of a stretch! I think it was just a wind-up.

Ah, I see. You might well be right, though it goes against the grain to admit that I might be at fault for not having perceived that on first reading his comment. I wouldn't like people to think that I might be one matchstick short of a full box. That wouldn't dovetail well into my own sense of self-identity. I would prefer them to think that I was a cut above the rest.

No need to bridle. The plane truth is that, in order to shine, you must ignitor go down in flames butt neither burn a hole in your pocket nor singe a finger.
