I am a web developer, open source enthusiast and a bit of a geek.

I own my own little consulting company, helping my customers do advanced web sites with Drupal and creating web applications with Node.js.

comment What kind of metal/alloy were on the old LEGO 9V train tracks?
Ooh, what colour are the spots? If it's steel, they should be rust-coloured.

comment How are LEGO sets designed?
There's a lot of efficiencies from new technologies – more precise, computer powered tools, less labour costs from using robotics for certain tasks – and I don’t think it was the creating of new parts themselves that brought them close to ruin, more the fact that they couldn’t sell them and burned a mountain of cash marketing failed products. Remember Galidor, Clikits?

Both sound plausible – good finds :)

comment Has anyone made their own custom LEGO bricks?
Ah, yes – of course. There's little you can't do with 3D printers :)

Yeah, feasible should probably be extrapolated as “without spending thousands of dollars” :)

comment What kind of plastic are LEGO bricks made of?
I'm pretty sure that the tyres are not made from real rubber, but some of the elastic bands used with Technic might be. Natural rubber does degrade over time, so I wouldn't be surprised to learn that it's another synthetic compound.
