Update on my wooden dummy.

I need to finish sanding the edges on the top arms so they're round and make the leg and base. I'll resand the body once more then it'll be finished.

walked away unscathed from a car accident the other night

 

1up: I fell through the ceiling of the Tropicana Casino in Vegas 15' and landed on my back the other day. Odly enough my knee is the only thing that is bothering me, other than that I'm good as wood. Surveillance guy came down and showed me the video of it... might possibly end up on YouTube if he was lying to me.

Please let end up on YouTube. o.o

1up

i spun 360 degrees in the car at 70mph, went across 3 lanes of traffic, slammed into the snowbank in the median, and had the car resting at 45 degree angle, had it not been for the snow, i would have rolled the car or gone into oncoming traffic

 

i also did your mom

Yeah, that kind of stuff happens to us electricians from time to time. :)

Okay, so I'm sure I've already caused a lot of groaning with this but it's finally done and I'll shut up about it now.

I changed my mind about the base I was going to use and instead crafted together this thing you see here. I placed the tiles myself and everything seen here was hand crafted. My two week long project has finally come to a conclusion and I can relax and get back to my regularly schedule routine. It'll be nice not spending 8 hours in my garage wearing terribly uncomfortable face masks and safety goggles.

Looks awesome Sithy. Very well made.

 

The old CRT TV in my parents room died recently, so they decided it was time for a new one. They decided to move the 32" 720p TV that was in the living room into their room and get a new one for the living room. We went down to Best Buy today and looked at all of the TVs they had and found the only 2 40" TVs that would fit our living room TV space. One of them was some brand we'd never heard of, and the other was a $1300 1080p Sony Bravia on sale for $900. We went for the Bravia:

It ended up just fitting with like a 8th of an inch clearance on top. It's basically the most optimal TV we could get to fit that space without either getting rid of the cabinet thing or getting a wall mount; neither of which we wanted to do.

Also, Lifetime. >_>

 

But yeah, I downloaded the 1080p version of that Sony Bravia commercial with the bouncy balls and the awesome song, and I stuck it on a USB and played it through the PS3. It was amazing.

 

Yep, I'm a Sony whore now.

Iff, you haven't already taken it away to the dump:

You could turn that into a fun project if you're willing to read a little and get your hands dirty--or at least find the right kind of nerd nearby to take it off your hands for free. Beats paying at the dump to get rid of it.

 

Click.

 

If you put up a billboard at a college saying something like "free electronic components to anyone who'll take my dead CRT TV", there's a good chance someone will ring you up for it. Especially if there's an electronics/electrical engineering department.

Congrats on the new upgrade. I'm envious. An SNES for the win.

Yep, I'm a Sony whore now.

That's a problem, how? Played a friend's PS3 and TBH it's pretty sweet. Wishing I had one now.

Rosewill 2.5" External Enclosure

 

$19 with shipping. Bought it after I realized I had a nice 2.5" hard drive sitting in my old broken laptop for the last year or so just doing nothing. Now I'll finally be able to backup all my **** easily, and no longer will I have to transfer files to the livingroom computer then back to mine.

Pfft, my livingroom is more Sony-er than yours... and for longer.

 

Sony HDTV, Sony Sound Receiver, Sony 5-CD player, Sony VCR (yes), Sony DVD, and I've thought of putting my PS3 Slim downstairs.

 

Also, it's been like that for a majority of my life. When I was 8, it was Sony TV, Receiver, Tape Deck, CD Player, VCR... Oh, and we've had the same receiver and CD player the entire time.

I have pre-ordered AvP3 (Yes I'm calling it that as there were two before it, just because they were not on the consoles they feel they have to hide the fact that this is the third game...).

 

I never got to play the first one but I loved the second so I have high hopes for this...

Got tickets to see these guys.

 

As well as KoRn, Five Finger Death Punch, A Day to Remember and August Burns Red.

 

I wanted to see them with Slayer and Testament here in Toronto, but the show got canceled because of Tom Araya's back surgery. :(
