Around this time of year this Valentines Day post gets alot of attention, so I figure some of you newer readers might not have know about this super popular post that I have.  In it I go over the crude LED lit Plexiglass Heart I made some years ago.  The construction of it is nothing … Continued

Insane Domino Rally

0

I remember when I was little I would constantly make a mess of my basement setting up Domino Rally runs.  They always ended up going off prematurely and ruining hours of setup time, but it was still fun.  YouTube user FlippyCat seems to have collected 30 or 40 of every individual Domino Rally set ever … Continued

Jason Bourne

I’ll be honest with you, this movie came out of nowhere on me.  I hadn’t kept up with the latest developments of filming schedules, but damn, I am excited: I am not excited about being in Alaska when it’s released though.  Maybe I can find a theater in Anchorage or Fairbanks that is showing it…

That Game is on

The Super Bowl that is.  I also hear there are some commercials that are supposed to be pretty good.  I can’t seem to find them online yet though.  Maybe on the NFL channel, probably not though.  Oh well, since about 50% of the country is watching the game and not reading the internet, I can … Continued

Smart phones are cheap, and most everyone has them (yes, even me), so … Continued

P. “The Big Bopper” Richardson, the 4th was their pilot of the plane they charted to take them between shows in the mid-west.  America was stunned as Holly … Continued

3D Printed Marble Machine

Instructables user Jazzmyn has designed her own pieces for a marble machine.  They’re pretty basic parts, curves, switches, and Ys.  But they all connect together and in whatever way you want to combine them.  You can download the parts on Thingverse, but you will obviously need a 3D printer in order to build your own. … Continued

You may or may not have noticed some slowness the last few days.  I’m currently working out what the causes of that could be.  I might have a fix, or I might just use The Russian way to fix it, as shown below:
