42nd Anniversary of the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy

We attended a 42nd anniversary of the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy on Saturday. The event was put on by the Who North America – Doctor Who store in Camby Indiana. We brought a present we made on our Glowforge to the owners as a thank you for having the event. We made an edgelit sign exclusive for them (it has a personal thank you on it).

Thank you to all the GF people here for inspiring me, and for @marmak3261 for showing us our first view into what types of things our Glowforge will be able to make (he showed us all kinds of inspiration!) If you are a Whovian and want to see what the store looks like, check out the 2nd link.

I cannot remember who showed us his edgelit sign with the clear acrylic in the middle (but thank you!), but I showed this off at work and a couple of people asked me where I was able to find such a nice base for the light…was proud to say we made it!

I bought that book when I was 11 when it was freshly of the press. That’s is great work on the design and the execution on the acrylic!!!

@marmak3261 @ptodd @ellingtonmd Thank you very much.

In case someone asks them who made it, I am hoping they will pick up the acrylic sign and realize my email address is at the bottom of the front of it… I didn’t want to make it seem like I was doing it for advertising or anything…it truly was a gift.

@ellingtonmd I wasn’t surrounded by tech savvy people until I joined our Makerspace 9 years ago … and they suddenly made me feel alive…I felt at “home” like I belonged … and my life over the last 8 years has changed drastically and for the better. They have become my friends, and in one case my best friend (I met him at the makerspace) became my husband, and I thoroughly came alive through them. I was introduced to Hitchhikers Guide, the world of soldering, Arduinos & Raspberry Pi, 3D printing … and Doctor Who! :smiley:

So many situations I get the image of all the sheep trying to hide under all the other sheep, a metaphor that is perfect for so many situations,

Nice work! Aaaand, where did you eat dinner?

ummm I think we ate on the road as we were heading back. Hubby decided he didn’t want to stay in a hotel and would just drive back the whole way…

Not the restaraunt at the end of the universe?
