Books/Comics/Etc / An obscure question
« on: October 18, 2015, 04:35:04 PM »
Im having to ask an obscure question here.
Im certain in the 90s I read a novel ( shadowrun or battletech)  that mentioned  " a little dragon doormat"   an emplaced doormat / claymore mine type explosive device to deter truly unwelcome visitors. 
But ill be dammed if I can remember the title of said book / which universe it was from  :scratchhead:   any one got a clue?
ive tried a quick look on google with no dice.  so any suggestions gratefully received.

Announcements and News / problem with HF site
« on: September 28, 2014, 10:21:50 AM »
Not sure if any one else is having the same problem but both my favourites link, and the link from the FoD both say that the HF homepage is non-existent at the moment ( 10:17 UK time 28sept14).
is it due to the move?  or some unfortunate tec incident?

The Computer Zone / mp3 player SD card question
« on: August 23, 2014, 10:23:05 PM »
Good evening folks.
An odd question, but im finding little or no help via google.
Ive got my grubby paws on a Fiio X3  mp3 player  its got 8 Gig of memory internally, and a mirco SD card slot, that according to the company blurb, I can put a 64 Gig card in.
Ive updated the firm ware ( to version 3) ( by borrowing a friends 2 Gig card )  and now despite the fact it should recognise the extra SD card it doesn't, apparently as the card is on exFAT  and should be on FAT32.
Windows 7 won't format a 64 Gig card to FAt32, even via the command line interface ( after advice from a techy friend ive tried this) as the card size is too large,  and google seems to recommend several   FAT32 formatter programs, which would be a download ( or zip download) from a unknown site ( which im reluctant to do). 
any answers folks.

wile waiting for the news to start today, i caught the end of wimboldon, and the sight of one of the Venus sisters rasing her racket in triumph did make me think she`d make a wonderful additon to the HF line as a leader / champion to the Nubians.

Questions and Answers / 35mm bases
« on: April 24, 2012, 09:22:04 PM »
Im looking to make some hoverbot / transolar disks for my dr who mag, i daleks, ( theyll be classed as somthing close to the skeleton bots by a certain large company)  making the fence round them is going to be cutting wire grating, i intend to mold and then cast the inserts for the grav drive for the bottom, but i realy realy cant be bothered to make the circular flying bit by hand.
so the question.
Any one know where i can get 35mm circles  roughly the same thickness as 25mm mini bases, im going to want between 6 and a dozen, ( maybe  a few more at a later date),  id prefer to use just plastic but any material will do in the end..
