    I think the conventional read is "computer RPG," which is intended as a distinction from "Japanese RPG" a.k.a. JRPG, i.e. your Final Fantasies and your Dragon Quests and your whatnot. (Despite the...

    Nifty :) I picked up a couple later RS/6000s once upon a time, but I never got around to doing anything with them and ended up moving them on to a good home when I had to move.

    Shapeways is nice and straightforward for the manufacturing end of things, but you still need the shape file for the part. If it's not something someone has already created, then you'll either need...
