I am a C++ software developer turned product manager. My job at Autodesk is to ensure you want to buy our next version of 3ds Max. I like cooking and throw clay as a hobby (yes pottery).

Lego bricks were my favorite toys as a kid. I provided my children with my old collection and I am enjoying rediscovering the vintage models and walking on loose bricks during the night.

comment Does longterm storage in a connected state harm the studs/tubes?
the wheel breaks when removed from the tire. It is especially true when removing them from the smaller tire. Keeping them assembled is the only way to not break these. Do you feel it is useful on a longevity question enough or do you want me to delete this. I do not mind.

comment How much heat can LEGO bricks withstand?
ABS melting at 105C/220F is most likely the reason why LEGO discourage the dishwasher for cleaning bricks.

If you're that picky, you can certainly afford the custom fees. ;p
