Lucky Buddha
Enlightened Beer.

Not sure how the flavor will be, but I couldn't pass on 6 interesting Buddha bottles, and who couldn't use a little more luck.

Can’t See the Windows 10 Upgrade Notification? Here’s How to Enable It. http://ow.ly/30bWKY
Microsoft recently activated the Get Windows notification on eligible Windows 7 and 8.1 devices. Some users don't see the notification, despite running Windows 7 SP1 or Windows 8.1, both of which qualify for a free upgrade to Windows 10. If that's you, let us show you how to enable the Get Windows 10 upgrade notification.…

Ferrofluids - very interesting.
 
Ferrofluids are liquids that become magnetized when a magnetic field is applied. They're made by suspending nanoparticles (particles only a few nanometers -- tens of atoms -- across) of magnetic materials, each coated with a substance that keeps it from clumping, in an organic solvent. When magnetized, they tend to form characteristic "hedgehog" shapes.

These were originally invented for rocket fuel: the idea was to mix these directly into liquid fuel, so that a magnetic field could pull them straight into the engine. That eliminates the mechanical pumps that are at the heart of liquid-fueled rockets, which (especially then) were the #1 source of problems. Today, they're used for all sorts of other applications: for example, they're used to create hermetic seals around rotating drive shafts, like the ones in your hard disk, since if you just magnetize the shaft a bit they'll stay in place even as things spin around. Using similar tricks, they're what keep the voice coils of your speaker cool.

Basically, you can find ferrofluids anywhere that it would be really useful to hold some liquid in a strange position as if by magic. 

And here is what happens if you take a screw, apply a magnetic field to it, and pour a ferrofluid down the top. It both lubricates the screw very precisely, and looks really neat.

You can learn more at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ferrofluid .

Installed a new GFCI outlet with a nightlight in the kitchen today.
Looks great, and reducing flipping the light on/off just to pass through the kitchen.

They also have them with Bluetooth built in to turn it on and off or program times to shut itself on and off

Story
Introduction
I am the owner of +Geek Specialtieswebsite design and development and SEO services for small business and organizations.   

I love working with Wordpress (.org) and develop most of my client sites using Wordpress as a CMS.

I grew up in Minnesota and now live in Bloomington, MN. 

I love most things to do with technology.  I love to figure out 'how things work' and tinker.  I am recently getting into a new hobby, gas powered remote control cars.  I'm also getting back into building small electronics.  Do you have any good starter small electronics project recommendations?
Bragging rights
I work from home - it's awesome. Although with these hangouts, I may actually have to get dressed in the mornings now.
