Passion has little to do with euphoria and everything to do with patience. It is not about feeling good. It is about endurance. Like patience, passion comes from the same Latin root: pati. It does not mean to flow with exuberance. It means to suffer.

Here are a couple more. These aren't "free" sites, they're vendors, but they're of general interest to hobbyists:

http://www.kjmagnetics.com - K&J Magnetics, the definitive site for all your magnetization needs, IMHO.

http://www.poweredplay.net - Powered Play, pre-wired lighting solutions for those special projects. Not necessarily the best for 10mm scale models (although I reckon someone with a fair amount of time, patience and a decent Dremmel could make an awesomely lighted Ferrum or Hades), but in the 28mm and up ranges, the stuff these guys produce simply ROCKS!

Also, Blipvert, if you would, please do what Simon does when he adds something to the Living Rules Querry sticky topic and simply post something like "Original post updated" here as a Repky so that we can get notifications that this thread changed, and the icon turns red on the Forum page for us.

Thanks for compiling and maintaining this list!

Sorry if this is tooting my own horn, but I'm putting together an online army builder:

It's almost done, but PHR faction still needs loving. I wanted to have an army builder app that could run on any platform without requiring right-click menus or drag and drop.
