because it's a radiator, not an open flame and it is not hot enough to ignite the wood

the expedit is also THE record shelf per excellence. It's sturdy enough to hold tons of vinyl, smooth enough so that it doesn't damage the cover, big enough so that you can put some slightly unusual shaped records in there.

I ended up putting some wooden rails about 13" from the from so that don't go too deep and putting a homemade cross in the back is a good idea to make it extra sturdier (I use molding for those)

and sturdiness, for 1,2 and 5, those shelves wouldn't survive sideway bump well without the presence of those X.

it becomes an issue mainly because larger companies tends to answer to the shareholders and not the ethics.

Recently, larger agro industrial companies have tried to get the USFDA to change the rules of the organic labels. This would have resulted in allowing the use of GMO between others.

Small farms created the organic movement to differentiate themselves from huge company and defend their respect towards food and earth.

wouldn't you solve the issue at home by using a dock?

That way you can actually work with a real keyboard and mouse and have a big screen as well.

what about having some paper?

what good are pencils and pens without paper?

Plus you need a cup/glass for water, a back up hard drive if all the work is on the computer, a printer for any hard copy and a filing system for any hard copy that are delivered related to the system. Or a scanner to put them on the computer...

I quite like it, but I think that chosing modern style cabinet and stainless steel to obtain a timeless feeling isn't the right way to go.

It will age and not be timeless anymore in a decade or two.

Or maybe I am misunderstanding the "timeless" definition.

Last winter, I was leaving Virginia for good and went to france before moving to texas.
As the last day was getting more and more emotional, I got the pleasant surprise of being upgraded to business class during the overnight flight from East Coast to Paris.

It might not have made everything better, but it definitely helped me relax after I had left my friends of 4 years for good.

I agree with Erica, more of the drought resistant plants. But no no to the luscious grass landscape. I'm in San Antonio and there's water issues, if people wants a nice green grass, they should just move away to somewhere colder.
