There will be a new post on target550.com on Thursday.

The fotos will be by Ray the Rat.

Now I am as curious as is everyone else regarding his post.  I'll meet you at the site.

I'm as curious as Freud is.  I have no idea what I'm gonna post...well, photos, maybe, but that's about as far as I've gotten.  I'll just make something up.  :)

Well, the "Rat's eye view" photos are on the server.  http://www.target550.com/index.html  It's the bottom link and it leads to a group of shots I got as I wandered around Hume's shop while he and Freud chatted. 

There were some things that jumped out at the camera and my eye, so it's a little different from the single topic updates that Freud's been doing.  I hope it provides some insight into what it looks like when seen from the eye (and camera lens) of a rat, and maybe showing some stuff that might not have been pointed out previously.

Hope ya like 'em,

Ray,

Thanks for your perspective of the shop. I love that Logan Lathe.

Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

Huh?  This is what the page says:

Next Update: February 25

Current Post: February 18, 2010:  Current Picture Gallery

I know I ain't the sharpest knife in the drawer, but did I overlook something that's painfully obvious to others?

Ray,

I think what Sparky is talking about is what I highlighted in red, down the page at the bottom.

Thanks, Tom.  You and Sparky are absolutely right.  I had the wrong date there.  Duh. 

That's what I meant by overlooking something that was painfully obvious to others.  Maybe it had something to do with finishing that part up at 2 am or so.

Thanks again to both for the catch.

Ray..take a pill and relax.

I've done a Google Earth and I have a Predator on it's way to silence the source.

Get your ear plugs ready.

Sparky will be an apt description of the event.

I heard a rumor that "Rufus" will be the official Push Truck for Project 550.  :cheers:
