Wow... I have been watching the progress on this for some time - it's an amazing project (pointless, but still amazing). And now they've released the plans I can build my own! A lovely thing to be sure.
 Thanks Pike (why do I suddenly have the urge to say, 'Stupid boy...' and grab a WWII bolt action Lee Enfield rifle...?)

The Long Now Project has been a favorite of mine for several years now, and is a very Steampunk concept. Focusing on the long term, making things that last for a long time, and attempting to preserve knowledge in case of an apocalypse!  Smiley

Normal is something we've invented to keep out the demons and Gods and magic and monsters that live just on the other side of the "normal' world we've built for ourselves.
