[Build] Greetings and Blender...

Blender can do just about anything, and if I can find some people willing to
teach me to better hack python, we can make it do even more (Auto part
handling, simulated carpentry action menu, Part/Materials list
widget/plugin, etc).

I'm going to swing by the space tonight, for sure.  I'm putting together a
little 5 minutes presentation about some of the work I've done to date, and
I'm planning to announce the modelling class starting next Thursday then.

Between now and then, i need to get my hands on a couple 20 or 30 meter
measuring tapes... Anyone have any, or suggestions as to where I might find
them? (I've got a 7.5 meter tape that I'm using to model my apartment, but
It's not going to be sufficient to model a space as big as 2169 Mission).
