Had to go and work for the day to earn this, but I am so glad for how it turned out that I feel it was very much worth it!

Winter Arrives

We went so long without cold weather, and without precipitation of any form, that it seems people forget where we live.

I watched a SHAW truck almost take out my car because he kept pinning the accelerator, which just makes more ice under your tires. (Oh truck 4556, one day you’ll learn the hard way)

It’s not really all that cold, but the wind is a bear. Most of the impressive piles of snow are a result of the wind instead of actual accumulations.

We’re staying home and letting the fools of the neighborhood plow the routes clear. Some pictures:

WCRS Launches new website

January 18th, 2009

Our local robotics soceity has relaunched their website, with a fresh new mantra.

The main site will be blog style, based on the popular WordPress software. Forthcoming will also be a Wiki which will allow society members and the public at large to post projects, and even collaborate and share.

I may have had a small hand in facilitating their transition, but it will be the society members that ultimately either make or break the concept.

Time will tell- until then, I’m looking forward to being a part of something less static, and whatever skills and concepts can be brought forward by it.

Stop by and have a look at the new WCRS website!

Site gets new life

Well posting has been slow lately, which if anyone is left reading these, isn’t a surprise.

I have been playing with some electronics lately and wanted to start keeping track of some of them and thought why not use this space, since its paid for.

So there’s a couple of new categories that will be appearing, Electronics and Robotics. I apologize in advance to anyone who doesn’t care for either. I’ll still post some nice pictures of our flowers and other nice nature stuff too.

It is a good decision for me, however, and a bit inspired by this guy:

I liked the idea of sharing with people and even getting feedback, and so It is done! 🙂

Halloween 2007

Fairly good Halloween this year, we estimate about 60 kids came to the door. Nothing off happened, very smooth night indeed.

The green guy with ultraviolet eyes and the cage with white accent lights were modded by me. We bought the el cheapo Wally mart stuff and added lighting. We also converted this coffin that has a screaming head inside to remote control, but forgot about it until 8:00, by which time there was little point. Next year….

Watched this on JibJab today, laughed pretty hard so I thought I would share.
