    I took a picture - 2021

    Just a phone camera pic (Samsung Galaxy S10e) - on the fly, through the glass of a truck passenger window doing ~60 MPH down a Northern Minnesota rural highway at around 9:23am a couple days ago... Pretty impressed with how it turned out. (This is a raw, untouched image... it was also snowing...

    Finally completed a little 3D printing project I started

    So I've been wanting to print this Settlers of Catan set off of Thingiverse for awhile now - finally took the plunge. Put my Prusa MK3S/MMU2S through its paces in that it involved a ton of mutlicolor filament prints. The bulk of the STL files are straight off of Thingiverse using the link...

    Samsung has decided to adopt OLED tech...

    Samsung is investing close to 11 billion dollars (yes billion) into OLED tech to produce Qdot OLED based TVs starting in 2021. It seems OLED tech is going to be around for quite a while and Micro LED tech is still too damn expensive to be feasible for consumer TV production. Now that all the...

    Oculus Quest

    Picked up a Quest so that my kids would leave my PC VR rig alone... well that worked great for about a day until the wife stole the Quest to start watching Netflix with it. Portability on the Quest is pretty awesome. Here she is eating a rice crispy treat and binge watching Netflix while...

    I caved... Ordered the MMU 2.0 Upgrade for my Prusa i3 MK3

    While I don't necessarily NEED a multi-material print capability, I really would LIKE the ability to seamlessly print something with a dissolvable support material baked right into the print job. (Added colors/other materials would just be an added bonus.) This video convinced me that I NEED...

    Printer Enclosure Project

    I've been printing a good bit of ABS lately... But on the larger print jobs, was getting frustrated as I was getting some lifting/warping on my prints... even with the heated bed. That and the smell wasn't all that great either... Just the nature of the beast with ABS. So, I finally broke...

    VR GPU power needed going forward

    Found an interesting visual comparison of the graphics quality we can look forward to and the GPU rendering power that's going to be required for the Pimax 8K X going forward. Not my work (from the Pimax forums), but interesting nonetheless. Note that they are taking into account...

    In order to tweak my eVGA 8800GTX a bit (get it to run a bit cooler when overclocked) I decided to clean off the crappy stock thermal pads between it's heatsink and the card's GPU, memory & controller. Well, the RAM chips seems to use rather thick thermal pads that the GPU and controller do...
