Former LEGO ambassador and LEGO zealot as a whole. If I could give negative rep for people writing "Legos", I would. It's going to be very hard not to suspend any offender though.

comment Where do the pieces numbered 4255629 go in the Death Star (set 10188)
Bricklink lists only one such element, and peeron lists one, with one as extra. It's typical for LEGO to include duplicate of very small parts, and 1x1 tiles usually fit the bill. So there should only be one actually used in the set. I have no clue where though, just send me one and I'll try to find it :-)

comment Why do some sets have two different numbers?
The two questions are different. This one is "one set, two numbers" while the other is "two sets, one number".

comment Is there a reliable way to determine what minifigure is in a LEGO Minifigures series package?
The most reliable method known is: open the bag.

As far as I know, the contents of a box is fixed, at least for series 5 it is.

comment How to make a 1 ldu offset?
Don't thank me, it's all automatic. You got half of the bounty award because your answer was the most upvoted since the bounty started. Well, you were halfway there, so it makes sense :-)

You may want to use a cloth bag, to be sure.

It's even harder to judge the difficulty of a question when you already know the answer.

Full credits and my thanks go to Didier Enjary. I tried to have him come and answer himself, but he declined. Note that he also thinks the practical usefulness of the this is very limited.

comment How to make a 1 ldu offset?
Practical usefulness is debatable indeed. Very slow-sloped stairs, maybe? Even in the rare cases where it would be useful, continuous techniques are probably easier. So yeah, it's more for the challenge.

comment How can I build a LEGO marble pump?
You're right, the warning about that is in order, I rewrote it a little accordingly. The image would be much clearer on a black background, however, no idea if that's feasible here.

comment How to make a 1 ldu offset?
Your last statement is right on the spot, and there is one such element. (Also, note that for a 2 ldu gap, the erling brick alone isn't enough as it only has dimensions that are multiples of four. That's why you need a half-brick (10 ldu) offset too, which is what the jumpers are for in my picture)

Philo's pump is great but blocks now and then, but that's part of the GBC joy, and considering it's one of the oldest GBC modules in existence (that hasn't had parts replaced), it's actually quite resilient. By the way, if you want to see Philo or a great GBC display, I heartily recommend Fana'Briques, end of June in Rosheim (France).

GBC'ers always call that "pump". Tha main characteristic of it is that balls are pushed (pumped) through a column, so the mechanism has to support the weight of a whole column of balls. A lift usually only supports the balls it's lifting. And for all intents and purposes, a stream of balls could even be considered as a fluid.

comment Are Samsonite gears compatible with modern Technic gears?
I had some doubts on the "samsonite" issue but I just assumed the question was correct and didn't bother to check. My mistake.

Sounds ingenious, but I'm not entirely convinced. It's nearly like a continuous solution (I'm looking for a solution with pure stud connections), and the calculations must be horrible.

The visible holes are spaced like studs on plates, so the largest red one is larger than a 2x10 brick.
