He found the same thing with the larger version on the floor. By the time he came back with the climbing ropes, he was determined to go through the portal and he turned it back on (he didn't stop to think that it had turned itself off in his absence . . . which ends up being important ;) ) by dipping his toe into it.

The devices (both the table top and larger one) turn themselves off to save energy when not in use. They both turn on automatically when something starts to enter. Jeff dipping his toe in was basically activating the 'on' switch.(less)

Shortly after that post, I got a Twitter acount and, since I can use the posts from it here as filler, I thought I'd do just that.

If you'd like these kind of gems c... Read more of this blog post »
