Let's try busticating the link with the button next to the anchor in the edit panel.

(And the itty-bitty "X-Box" still goes to the photo on flicker.)

Oh, foo; the Insert/Edit Image button doesn't work for me, either.  Must be a software problem, not a hardware problem.

@Max:

Hmm.  When I click the HTML edit button I see the following where the link code should be:  

 When I click the itty-bitty box that's supposed to have the link (or the photo) it goes to the photo.

@Bellhop: As a follow-up to my earlier comment about the book: How to Sharpen Pencils: A Practical & Theoretical Treatise on the Artisanal Craft of Pencil Sharpening for Writers, Artists, Contractors, Flange Turners, Anglesmiths, & Civil Servants

I read it -- incredibly funny -- a must for anyone's bookshelf!!!

What's Missing From The Display?

What, no Primary Pencil in that display?  You know, the one Bill Cosby once decribed on vinyl as "big as a horse's leg?"

Come to think of it, maybe I should start carrying around a dozen of them suitably sharpened for self-defense.  They should be stronger than those thin yellow ones.  At 13/32" diameter, it's about the size of a .40 Smith & Wesson slug but a lot longer and reusable if you can pull it out of your target, and you don't need a permit to buy one!  Muggers and terrorists beware!

Has nobody yet mentionned that this is a great example of carbon-based technology, even graphen based?

It's amazing how long it took for someone to realize that there might be a better way to sharpen a pencil than with a pen knife, a device used to sharpen quill pens.

 

More than any other book, The Pencil distills what engineering is all about. Sadly, only engineers will read it. My wife can't fathom why anyone would even rest their gaze on the cover, much less get it from the public library, read it, then buy it!

@Bellhop: Don't tell anyone, but I've read that book cover to cover more than once!


Don't worry -- your secret is safe with me. I've also found another book that I've added to my wish list: How to Sharpen Pencils: A Practical & Theoretical Treatise on the Artisanal Craft of Pencil Sharpening for Writers, Artists, Contractors, Flange Turners, Anglesmiths, & Civil Servants
