I am a developer committed to open source software.

I have worked for Mozilla, helping develop the Gecko Platform, the rendering engine behind Firefox, Thunderbird, Sunbird, and many other third-party products. I am also the lead software engineer for Lil Joe Bean and President of Glass Tower Studios, LLC.

I also volunteer my time to numerous projects, including the Crystal Space SDK, which is an open source game engine, and the Eridanus project, a game design project. I am very passionate about video games, especially with regards to high performance graphics and immersive environments.

When I'm not working or developing open source software, my major hobbies include martial arts, video games, sailing, and playing my violin. I hold the rank of 3rd Degree Black Belt, Green Sash in Wu Chi Chuu'an Kung Fu. I am also a certified level 2 ice hockey referee for USAHockey.

comment How can I install a frost-free outdoor faucet with very little space?
This is a good suggestion. I might be able to do this, but it would take more planning than the solution I went with initially = put a normal sillcock in place and remember to drain it in the winter. ;)

comment How to prevent router from grabbing board when doing face moulding?
@HenryJackson Yes, I saw it. Thanks. So, no matter what, (even if I fed it from the other side), wood should NEVER go between the bit and the fence? Michael Karas seemed to think that doing an inside cut would require this (see comment in accepted answer below). Is this not the case?

Also, what did you use to make that nice diagram?

comment How to prevent router from grabbing board when doing face moulding?
So, this was my problem. I had the piece I was making between the fence and the router bit. My intuition of doing it this way seems right, as the other way, one can't see the cut as it's being made. However, if I wanted to do that, I now know I have to feed from the opposite direction. Thank you for your help.

On a side note, anyone need a 3/4"x4" frost-free 1/4 turn sillcock with PEX and threaded attachments? :)

Well, I went with a normal sillcock and then connected it using PEX piping within the wall (which was WAY easier than soldering it... I highly recommend the gator bites fittings for anyone who doesn't want to solder). At any rate, I'll just have to drain the sillcock in late fall. At least my one in the front is frost-free.

Unfortunately, no. The pipe comes down vertically from within the wall (it's in the basement, which is finished, so it goes through the ceiling from my laundry room, and down to the spigot).
