Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:

actually it was one of my windows, i had to get a doggie door installed and i have no wooden external doors, but i do have a floor to ceiling window in the laundry, which is where the dogs sleep
so instead of cutting the sheet of glass i have, they said they make a whole new panel precut, as its easier. so i now have the glass. its tempered saftey glass thats made up of 100s of layers of ultra thin glass and laminate, so this stuff is insanely strong
its got the tinting on it for privacy, and its reflective when viewed from particular angles, but light behind it comes out fine, also it will filter out all the uv from my cathodes, so you can only see the glowing wires and tubes =D

Very nice. I wish I had a sheet like that. That should look insane on the desk.

Yes it still lives! I also got some cool stuff going into it which I will reveal closer to the date the hardware is going in. also a redesign of the theme of this desk, I'll also have to ask a mod to change it's name when that is posted
