I’ve been getting into Facebook’s Mob Wars of late. Trouble is… it’s so damn addictive. Here’s a couple of pointers for newbies that I’ve discovered.

I’ve been suffering dizzy attacks for the last ten years. I decided to do something about it when I suffered some pretty bad ones just recently. I was ordered to have a full head CT scan by my Doc. Of course I had to ask for the images on CD.

cooling the cupboard

June 24th, 2008 No comments

I have a lot of hardware running 24×7 – PCs, routers, switches, firewalls, SAN, and it’s all contained within a cupboard where I stick it all. It’s pretty cool, in that it’s a dust free environment, and keeps the noise at bay, which is my intent. It’s basically a small contained computer room. What’s not cool about it, is that it isn’t.

laser projectors

June 6th, 2008 No comments

Laser projectors have been around for a while. You would see them at discos, (showing my age there), along with fog machines, creating ambience. More recently companies have been trying to make into something more useful than mere ambience, but is there any real practical use for them?

What would you say to a device that can project a 2048×1280 screen on
any surface, infinite focus, no moving parts, that consumes only 1.5W
of power, and is the size of a matchbox?

This device seems to be such a device. If it was a typical 1st April day post, then I would have casually laughed and moved on. But if this device does what it promises, then laser projectors will be the demise of these bulky LCD screens, (LOL).

If only it wasn’t announced a year ago….. Where is it now?

panoramas – The Old House

April 11th, 2008 No comments

Another 360 pano of the old house at the pool area. Pretty boring, but this was taken with the DSC-F828. No pano head was used, so parallax error is particularly noticeable. Look straight down and you’ll really see the errors.

Need to build a pano head now.

cable laying – ile de Sein

April 8th, 2008 No comments

One of the things I enjoy seeing is big engineering. That is: Engineering on a big scale. I had the good fortune to be offered a guided tour of a cable laying ship. Which is a ship that lays cables, (funnily enough).

panoramas – New Zealand

April 2nd, 2008 No comments

I’ve gone and stitched together a whole bunch of photos that I took when in NZ a year ago. They were taken with an El’ Cheapo 3MP camera, so they’re pretty fuzzy. Also, it was set to auto everything so the balance is way out. One of these days I’ll get a proper camera and redo these panos properly.
