26-Top of the morning to ya!

The top of the dash box, and the very top of the mod. Another return vent to help cover the backside of the computer from dust when its off.

Brushed nickled window latches hold the hood on, though they were moved further out to the edges after carpeting. The one on the right kept brushing the vent cover, scratching my black paint off.

20-NO MORE DUST!

20-NO MORE DUST!

One of my biggest issues with the Antec 900 is that it is very similar to an air purifier. With three 120mm fans sucking air in, the dust and dog hair love to cake my front vents and fill my case.

Rather than abuse my awesome airflow rate, I wanted to filter the computer, yet not hinder airflow in any way. A 16"x16" furnace filter did the trick.

Then using plexi-glass on the inside, coupled with a mirror at the right angle means I don’t loose the awesome look of the triple 120mm blue light fans that I so love!

Endangered Species

Endangered Species

1.28.11 – The importance of a good mouse is key for most digital artists, photographers, and designers. Logitech has served me well since as far back as I can even remember. The last brand before Logitech I honestly remember in my hands was an IBM one that came with the first computer my family ever got. I grew up playing around with commercial computers that had black and green screens and required line commands but this computer was a "personal computer", something all nerds lusted for. This was when color computer screens were considered some huge leap in computer technology. "Imagine the power required to produce all those colors!"

The clunky, large white mouse seemed so amazing at the time. Dust would collect in the tracks in a matter of weeks, making you loose control of your pointer. This then forced you to take the ball out and clean each little roller sensor. The cord would knock things over on your desk at times and you had 2 inputs (1 on a mac).

How far we have come. This mouse is ergonomically shaped to form to the human hand in a comfortable position. It wirelessly sends signals to the computer using a laser sensor that can work on relatively any surface and has 10 inputs. Just think what the future holds for us tech-heads if this kind of progress can be made with something as simple as a mouse in such a short amount of time.

The days of the mouse are numbered though. Touch screens and highly advanced motion sensors will become the new age of computer interfaces. What next? Full integration? Ok, I won’t get too carried away. Happy friday everyone.

1.27.11 – I have been wanting to shoot this for a long time now. This giant book was built to allow local graffiti artists to have their way with it. It always reminds me of what in high-school we called "The Rock." It was what I always supposed was originally a giant 4-foot-tall boulder from the mountains. The tradition was to have each class come and paint over the previous lower or upper classes markings. We would have friendly battles back and forth month to month.

Like an old giant tree, this huge blob had hundreds of layers from multiple generations (including my mother). I volunteered as an on-call firefighter for a couple year in high-school and one night we got called out to the station for a fire at the school. Turns out someone had covered in gas and lit the thing on fire. The flames were taller then the people on the scene. No damage was caused, but we always assumed it was a rival football team from the hills. The Rock still stands today with fresh coats of paint from new generations of students.

Workstation, Summer, 2009

Just finished a four hour workstation reorganization. Moved the desk back, unplugged everything (about 40 cables in all!), got rid of unused equipment, dusted everything, rerouted everything (there are two power strips with 7 wall warts hidden in this picture).

Through My Eyes… 49/365 (Missed Day)

Through My Eyes... 49/365 (Missed Day)

49/365

Day 49 is the first day I missed this year. Not something I’m of that proud of. This one is to make up for my missed day.

I was very sick and was in bed barely conscious for over 15 hours. Taking a picture was no where on my mind, unfortunately.

I haven’t been that sick in probably over 5 years.

Anyways enough about that…Here is my room, this is what I see every night when I watch my tv shows and when I process my photo’s. I used to sit at a desk and work on a laptop, but then I upgraded to a desktop with more power and speed. I hooked it up to my tv (which is no longer a tv, it’s my monitor hehe). I think once I move out I’ll get a nice desk, chair, and an actual monitor to work at. For now, I lay in bed and relax after working all day 🙂

This is also the room where most of my shots from this project were taken.

When you buy something, that does’nt work, before trowing it away, make some photos!

This is my first try with my new extension tubes, that allow me to approach with the 70-200 to almost 10cm, instead 150cm (4inch/60inch)!

You will notice much "dust" on the wheel. Well, it was very hard to getting rid of it, i think there was a static charge. And then i found the dust just interesting

Strobist info:
Room was completely dark and i "painted" the subject with a hand held torch.
