I wanted to wait until the contest was over and the goblins were all gone since I couldn't win anyway. Here my video entry, "Centrotec Pumpkin":

It's still under development, Brice... It may never be AINA.

That video was made surreptitiously using my phone at an "invitation only" event held secretly in the Black Forest. The Hessens were everywhere on guard/in attack mode and the Swabians were in the trees...

I was disappointed not to have won the level, but this made it all better. My dad gave me a Disston level that had been my grandfather's. It's a 24 incher with a patent of 1912. Not quite Stabila accuracy, but pretty good for being almost 100 years old.

Very nice, Russell!  Keep that to continue passing it down.

Just a bit of info.  Patent dates are not dates of production.  Obviously the patent date was issued prior to the production of the item (due to the patent process).  You can usually get a general idea of its age from the patent date, though.

Yeah, the level probably wont get much use, but it will stay in the family. Thanks for the info on patents, I didn't think it could be that old.
