  2. Acid etching knife blades

    I thought I would try acid etching my initials into a knife blade with muriatic acid. If the acid gets masked with masking tape, then cut out my design, then add drops of acid for 4 hours, I think that should do something.

  4. Annoying menus

    This post is not about this site, but about other web sites with annoying menus. Menus that popup (and sometimes won't go away) when you simply drag your mouse across the screen.

    Isn't that annoying? Some programmer tools allow you to set a delay of 1-2 seconds so the menu won't come up unless your cursor hovers over the menu for 1-2 seconds or more. "Hello! Programmers! If your tool does not allow you do set a delay on the menus, don't use it!"

    As a programmer ...
