Television Reality

Posted by Mike Geiger on Sunday, November 13. 2016

Hearing about it for the first time, I thought, "haha - won't he give them a run for the money... there's no way he'll succeed, but he'll sure mess up their party", then it became "he can't possibly gain enough delegates..."

I tried my best to avoid the circus, but it was unavoidable. I couldn't believe that monologues and tweets weren't simply Hollywood or Reality-TV crap, that anyone with a right mind could take it seriously.

Build a wall? Ban all Muslims? Who thinks this is a solution to a problem? Who subscribes to these notions?!
Answer: 60.3 million people.

People I talk to describe a surreal feeling as they watched the results come in Tuesday night, clinging to any hope that things would turn at the last minute. I didn't rest well. I couldn't turn on the news Tuesday morning.

And just two days later, I started to see it. "Trump to deport 2-3 million undocumented immigrants", considerations of a climate-change denier for environmental ministries, a creationist for education, an ultra-right-wing sensationalist journalist editor for Chief of staff. This is a tragic-comedy I'm reading, right?

Then it got worse.

"This is white-America now"

I feel sick.

Can you change the channel please? I don't seem to be able to.

Paper Mill Pinhole Camera

Paper Mill Pinhole from Myke on Vimeo.

Working in the old abandoned E.B.Eddy/Domtar paper mills at Chaudière Falls in Ottawa Ontario Canada, I noticed something moving on the floor - and realized it was the clouds.

Audio is very low, but you're not missing much.

New Toolbox - DeWalt Tough System

Posted by Mike Geiger on Wednesday, June 24. 2015

My 25 year old Rubbermaid toolbox (that was a hand-me-down from my father!) finally broke in to enough pieces that it warranted being replaced.

DeWalt Tough System

As usual, I tried to spend well and went with DeWalt's Tough System, because it looks like it'll survive cold weather, is a modular/stackable system that has the modules I want, and generally doesn't suck. (Note: Don't confuse Tough System with TStack, the latter being the more consumer oriented line.)

Top unit is the DWST08201 Tough System Case - Small, and the bottom is DWST08225 Tough System Drawer Unit, it's a heavy combo when loaded, but thankfully it's easy to split and carry one in each hand. The only tools that aren't in there are my fish tape & fish sticks, 3' level, and power drill.

Top/Main chest - usual tools & small store of consumables

Hidden compartment of top has some USB chargers, CAT5e cables, pencils & Sharpie, test leads, foam ear plugs, Tylenol, but there should be some bandages too...

Lower unit - top drawer is consumables: tie-wraps, Marretts, screws, RJ45 & RJ45 ends & boots, telephony bits 'n bobs...

Lower unit - bottom drawer has larger & specialized tools: butt-set, cable toner & tester, RJ11/RJ45 crimper, clamp meter, DMM, hammer, bullet level, safety glasses, spade bits, more wood screws, label maker.
