Happy Halloween 2009 - Pumpkin Carving

I have not posted in a while and just wanted to say Happy Halloween to any visitors out there. For your enjoyment I have posted a few pics of my pumpkin carvings for the past few years. Hope you enjoy them!


(2008) Poor attempt at creating a "self" carving...

(2007) Fairly pleased with the outcome of this one. I just grabbed a few knives and made it up as I went.

Still working on the site design for . Thus far the site is fairly usable where visitors can simply browse the current postings for recovered cameras and photos. At the same time you can quickly create a free login to post images from a camera that you may have found. I am still working on the site logo as well as color schemes and layouts, so these items may be ever changing over the next few weeks. Please check it out and tell your friends. Perhaps one of them has lost or found a camera that they may like to reunite with its owner.

Just recently I have been experiencing what a lot of projector owners refer to as, "Dust Blobs". Upon researching this annoyance, I had found that there were a lot of projector owners out there who were trying to locate answers as to how to clean these suckers out of their own home projectors.

For those who do not know what a "dust blob" is, it is when a spec of dust lands inside the imaging mechanism (lens and/or mirrors, etc.) of a projector. Some may think, "big deal, its a tiny spec of dust". Well, given the nature of projectors, this pin sized spec of dust gets magnified a billion times then is conveniently projected right out onto your movie screen resulting in most cases as a blurry hexagonal shaped "light " spot on the screen. This spot is typically just a shade lighter than the overall displayed image on the screen and is most noticeable when the video/image being displayed from the projector is black. The size or quantity can vary…
