  1. Consider this a 4K video blueprint. I went to Jymm Hoffman's shop and filmed how to forge a frying pan. Here's a 10 minute instruction video: Video contains some short scenes that may be objectionable to some viewers. Please forgive the PUBG references, our YouTube audience is much younger. What do you all think?
  2. Mostly snakes. However a cricket kept me company with his chirps tonight.
  3. Dance your cares away, worries for another day. Let the music play, down at Fraggle Rock!

  4. Heading to my first punk house show of the year.

  5. I have no clue what company delivers at 8am, but I will enjoy the morning PG Tips I ordered.

  6. I never realized how many of my friends only know one language until I started learning more.

  7. ...and I feel fine.

  8. Great photos, good stuff.
  9. It's a rumor. I Forge Iron now pushes out over 2,500,000 pageviews a month, which requires more focus on the technical end. After last night, we'll be refocusing on the Blueprints soon.
  10. This upgrade is straight forward. We're switching login systems. The Blueprints being offline are a another story. I'll post an update on the Blueprints soon. The advantage is one login. Also, you do not need to like us on Facebook. I put the banner up to remind people we are on there as well. I'll take it down in a few days. Everyone is affected.
  11. I Forge Iron is expanding. As a result, we are changing the way we handle login authentication. We ask you check you account so we can fix any problems before the upgrade. Please make sure your login information is current. A ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. One reason for this, is I Forge Iron now has a store and we'll be introducing an SSL (encryption). The upgrade, which will be rolled out soon, will allow users to login via email or username. Across multiple sites even. Members stuck as, "Awaiting validation" will be deleted. These are people who signed up, often spammers, but never confirmed their email address. Make sure your email address is correct!  you may find your account is closed if not current
  12. We just upgraded the server. The chat will be fixed soon enough.
