Hi there, thanks for the like and follow of the cardboard computer :-)

  Are you sure? yes | no

I could not have liked or followed a more awesome project. Forgive the fanboying -- but you're going to go places with that thing, real places and important places. Enjoy the adventure... :)

Again, thank you :-)  I had tried to build the paperclip computer back in the 70's and gave up thinking it was too much to handle. Now look what I got myself into :-) My wife just shakes her head at this project.

...hey, wait. Your profile says North Carolina. Where in NC are you, if I can ask? I'm in Siler City, an hour East of Asheboro (where the zoo is) and an hour West of Raleigh.

Apologies if I'm coming off a little creepy here -- I have Asperger's, so I don't always know when that is. I promise I'm harmless :)

Hay, no problem at all. Don't mind chatting :-)  I live in Bolivia, NC near Southport / Oak Island on SE coast. I lived in Robbins for a few years and have been to the zoo and Asheboro many a time. When I hear of Siler City, I think of Aunt Bea :-) (Mayberry)

Ha! I bet my father knows that area better than I do. He's nuts about the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, and is in the process of moving to Salvo right now...

I didn't actually know there was a town named Bolivia in NC. I thought that that part of your profile meant that you shuffled between NC and Bolivia the country. You'd think with all the traveling I've had in my past, I'd know a few things about my own state... geez.

Hext time you're planning to be anywhere near here with some spare time, drop me a line a couple days in advance -- I don't drive and public transit here is weird (they need to know where to take you 2-3 days before you're going, no joke) but maybe we could meet for lunch at Burger King or something -- I'd LOVE to see your computer in person! (and maybe by then I'll have something put together that I can brag about, myself... maybe... would be nice, lol)

Have never been to Cape Hatteras but would like to go someday, I am way south from there :-) Most folks think that Bolivia is only a country in SA. So did I until six years ago :-)
