The holiday hangout will go online tomorrow! If there's anything in the regular subforums that you're going to want to access over the holidays, copy it now while it's still accessible.
Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Covering a shattered window

Some time last night two of my windows were shot at and one of them is completely gone now. What specifically should I use to cover it so that I can still see somewhat out of it while a new part is being ordered?

    You haven't given me a reason to steer clear of you!

    clear thick plastic sheeting... you can get it at a hardware store

    if the windows are fairly simple (i.e flat side windows), then consider getting a thin piece of lexan... it'll be a lot more see-thru, and protect your interior a bit more

    A few years ago someone broke into my car, smashing my window and stealing my cd player. My insurance covered nothing, and I couldn't afford to replace the window (1979 t-bird windows are hard to come by). I got some thick and clear plastic and cut it in the shape of the window, and left a long slab of plastic on the bottom to hold it in place. I also used duct tape to make sure it doesn't slide out of it's spot. The window was broken in March 2007, and the plastic replacement is still there today. I haven't driven the car since last june (anyone in the market for a 1979 t-bird? cheap!), but I'm sure the plastic window would still hold up if I took the car out now.
