Every once in a while, I get obsessed with a crazy idea. Sometimes, it is related to work and that is a good thing, as I will knock myself out trying to write some C# code that makes everything work better.
And sometimes, it is something related to comics. Like, I have to have a mouse-pad with my favorite Giant-Size cover of all time, Giant-Size Defenders #1:
I'm so happy with this, a little collectible that only I have. How did I make it? I tried a number of websites in vain. Zazzle rejected my content because they were copyrighted images. Finally I just decided to go to Fedex.com's Photo Services site and create my own. Just upload the scan of the cover and you are done. I don't believe it is illegal as I am not selling this to anyone else.
Since you save on postage if you get two mouse-pads at the same time, I also had my favorite King-Size Conan Annual #1 made:
Obsession complete, my mind can go back to something resembling work. Nuff said.
