I was searching through some Posties websites and I came across a project called the toss a camera. What you do is set your cameraâ€™s timer and toss it in the air and let it go off. All I seemed to do was toss the camera across the room after setting the 2 second timer and have it go off as it hit the bed, across the room, then it went off. On this one the camera bounced off the bed and then went off capturing my suitcase and a tie, I have no idea where the lights came from in the picture. The one thing that seemed to help when I tossed the camera was that it now focuses a lot faster than it had been lately. That is weird. The poor thing is on its last legs.
Today I crossed the mighty Mississippi River on my way from Missouri to Illinois. It was the first time I had even gotten close to the river. Unfortunately I was on a bridge and could not stop to take any pictures.
I was only in Lubbock Texas for less than 24 hours so I could not get to the Buddy Holly Museum. The airport however had a mural of Buddy Holly and so I took a picture of it for Mom and Dad. They recently watched an old movie about Buddy Holly called The Buddy Holly Story that starred, of all people Gary Busey as Buddy Holly. Here is the picture from that.
Pornado. Clicking a pop-up that releases a torrent of porn related pop-ups. Coined by Hodges on TV show Bones. The phrase is perfect for what happens after an errant click. Bones was a very good episode tonight. There were many good guest stars. I love the psychiatrist character who worked with Booth. Those were some great moments.
I am so all about the GeekBrief.tv podcast right now. If you havenâ€™t seen the GeekBrief.tv podcast then you are missing out on some fantastic information about great gadgets. I already have a list of things to look out for. By watching GeekBrief.tv I found out that Sanyo is releasing a Xacti HD2 camera. This will be an update to the Sanyo Xacti HD1A. There will be 7MP instead of 5MP and they also improved the low light recording. If I am to start a podcast at some point then the Sanyo Xacti HD2 is the camera Iâ€™ll be getting to do the recording. I havenâ€™t gone through the blog or all the archives at GeekBrief.tv but I will. The episodes are great and very short. Iâ€™ve seen episodes 83 â€“ 126. So I have about 82 to go back through and watch. Cali Lewis is a great host as well. Her rapid fire delivery is very entertaining and informative. Give it a watch sometime; youâ€™ll learn something about cool gadgets.
I also finished Final Target and I picked up Carl Hiaasen’s Skin Tight. I like his stuff and one of his characters from a previous book of his is in this book.
Tonight I took a bitterly cold walk over to Target. I picked up some water and a hat and some target dog cookies. The cookies were very tasty and the hat is too young and hip for me but I needed something for the cold weather. The hat was marked down to $1.48, that was a sweet deal.
