Super Duper Deal.... (heh, if only i would get it...)

Last night on digg.com, they had some 200 gig external hard drives for .58 cents. I went to the site and they were listed as .34 cents. So being as cheap as i am, i ordered one.

Reading on digg, people ordered as many as 100 of these things! i would be thrilled if i got my 1, let alone 100 of them.

Free Air... Free canned air that is... 
Sunday, August 13, 2006, 10:52 PM - Hacks
Had this wonderful idea to make a free air duster out of an old chemical sprayer.

Kunz motivated me to do it after he showed me someone elses on hackaday.

This is the whole sprayer.


Lucky me that this comes with a air spicket built in, i can fill it up at any gas sation/ dad's house...


Reading the warning label on the side reveals that this sucker can safely hold up to 200psi! I was only abe to get it up to ~120 psi (due to the limitations of my dads air compressor)


The nozzle, i used to spray a fine mist, but i gutted it to make a nice stream of air.


The GO lever, makes the air come out.


All in all not bad for FREE! Yeah, it was broken and didn't hold air, but i fixed the seal and away i went. It doesn't hold a charge for a very long time, but hey, its free. I figure i visit my dad once a week, i can just fill it when i head over.

Stupid Mice 
Wednesday, July 19, 2006, 03:08 PM - Family
I heard something in the stove, and after investigating... i found that a mouse or two had decided they liked our dogs food. They carried a whole pile of it up and under the burners of our stove. How they did not cook is beyond me. After a load of poison and a good cleaning, i think they will not bug me anymore.

Pancho Baby

I accidently burned a hole in one of our dish towels... well, the hole just happened to be dead center, and just a bit bigger than Abbey's head. Well, i stuck it over her head and she is now pancho baby.
