catching up

Today I'm testing the Alphasmart 3000, having replaced the internal button battery, which I never did last year.  I'm also testing the cable I have as past cables have been troublesome.

I just got back from Dallas, where I took the Rocket inside my rollaboard suitcase.  I was prepared to dig it out but neither security staff asked me to.
As you can see, I have an alignment issue I didn't have before.  Too much jostling?
Today I went to an Arts event called Metal Urge, where I made myself some some Nano Rhinos which I hope will bring me luck.  Here's the photo set.

This picture is the presser for the "charm"  I made.  They didn't have a rhino punch so I had to cut one freehand with scissors.

Others doing charms

Rhino mold at far right.  The medium is sand held together with a gluelike plstic resin.  You just scrape away whatever doesn't look like a negative image of what you want to end up with.  Like stamp carving but with a third dimension.

I missed the pouring of my own, but it sure is fun to watch.

Here they all are!
