Happy Dogs & Cats

I've seen this one before, but it showed up again today in my "What's Hot" and it made me smile.

How dogs smell.

And, I mean, how they smell with their noise. Not how they might stink. :)

But, on the subject of stinking, there just isn't much that seems to smell bad to a dog. They really don't like glue and paint thinner type smells. But, even in that case, I'm guessing that actually has more to do with the fact that those types of odors drown out all others rather than they just don't like those smells.

Slow motion SLR shutter.

I learned something. I didn't know about the rolling shutter.
 
Really interesting video on how a camera shutter/mirror works (and in slow mo to see it better)

Christmas in Jersey Village.

Jersey Village is a small city located inside the city of Houston, Texas. There's actually a number of small cities inside Houston.

This house belongs to a friend of ours. Every year for about the past 25 years, he has had brass musician friends over to play Christmas music in his front yard. This year, there were about 20 of them and they played for an hour and a half. They took audience requests and managed to hit every traditional Christmas song I can think of.

The fire department even delivered Santa Clause who passed out candy canes to the children and also some of the adults.

Incidentally, that isn't the actual front of his house.  He has built a small street scene across the front of the house. It includes lit windows with scenes inside many of the windows. It features a the Village Inn, a coffee shop, and a toy and pet store. Over the years, the scene has grown into something pretty elaborate. He manages to store all of the pieces in a special place that he added to the garage for this specific purpose.

TyphonRT Video Suite for Android

This kickstarter has 4 days left. If you have any interest in using an Android device to create video effects, go take a look at this project.

I met +Michael Leahy at the #babbq2014  (Big Android BBQ) this year and I can tell you that he has an immense amount of enthusiasm in bringing this kind of product to Android.
 
#phandroid   #rocks  

I'd certainly like to give the folks over at Phandroid the nod as they were really nice to make a post about the TyphonRT Video Suite. It was a surprise to wake up to ~20 more backers; the largest influx yet. 

Now there are 4 days left for the Kickstarter and I can use any help from those on G+ to get more momentum for the project. Remember this is Kickstarter, so if the funding goal is not reached then you owe nothing. You can however be a part of making it tip at this crucial stage of building momentum. 

Kickstarter link: http://kck.st/1xA3R61

There is also some activity on Reddit if you are a Reddit user... "TyphonRT" may be a good search term.. ;P 
If you've been looking for a pro-grade video editing suite for Android then there's no reason you shouldn't know about TyphonRT.

Arduino at RadioShack 

This is my Arduino haul from the RadioShack closing sale. The Arduino items seem to be about 80% off. Most of the rest of the store is 50%.

The sale is only occurring at the stores that have been announced as closing.

I'm really sad to see these stores close.  RadioShack has been a fixture in my life for many years. They often didn't have the best pricing on everything, but they were convenient.

Mad Max IRL?

I've never really been into off roading, but owning that could change my mind.

That will do 100 mph on dirt, while you sip a cup of tea WITHOUT spilling it.

How NORAD's Santa Tracker started.

This story has apparently been around for awhile. I've just not heard it before.

It all started in 1955 with a misprint in a Colorado newspaper and a call to Col. Harry Shoup's secret military hotline. Shoup played along with the tiny voice who called, and a tradition was born.
