  1. shouldn’t r2d2 be called d2 rather than r2. he is an r2 unit, so his designation is d2. always bothered me in the movies.

  2. On a weird side note, Does Will and Norm have the same kind/style of glasses? Just noticed it while watching them working.

  3. They were downloadable in the beginning of hypnocube but haven’t been for a while.. There were some audio issues on one of the downloads not sure if that’s got anything to do with it. I’m thinking they probably have this posting on a timer and don’t want to fix it over the holidays so they just removed the broken files.. Then again, I really have no insight in to the reasoning of why and how they do what they do.

  4. Hopefully this helps clear the air on the decal vs sticker debate

    A handy trick for placing decals or stickers is to spray a small amount of glass cleaner or Windex on the area that is receiving them. Then you can place the sticker on the surface and slide it around until it is perfectly position and then use a paper towel to squeegee the glass cleaner out from under the sticker. My older brother taught me this trick nearly 35 years ago when we would place contingency award/sponsor decals on his drag car. Works like a charm every time!

  5. Unfortunate that we cant download, I really like sticking them always on top in a corner of my code editor while I work.

    Sometimes I wish websites would stick their code up on github so I could just go in and fix the bugs that bother me.

  6. I just wish if they are going to make a premise that its a different day, they should at least change their shirts. 🙂 LOL So, is it normal to have pieces left over? Norm has quite a pile forming.
