Interesting light and shadow on the east field this evening. It's darkly cloudy to the west except near the horizon where the sun is. This caused the old house, garage, and barn to cast long dark shadows over the field. Assuming it hasn't been cropped out, the pine tree on the left is a bit over 300 yards from the lens to give a sense of scale and distance.

Finally got my EasyCap working under Linux! I'm doing a car computer project and need to pull in my car's existing video for compositing with new features. Time to purchase a 7" touchscreen and Pi 2 for some real prototyping.

+Nate Berry the eventual goal is a carputer. My car (Infiniti G35x) is 8 years old but still low miles and nice. Of course the Bluetooth and 7" LCD interface are horribly dated. Glad I didn't waste my money on navigation. This is a problem with a lot of recent cars. The electronics become dated and make people want to upgrade. I have no problem dealing with electronics, so this is my project.

A lot of the previous carputer projects focused on AV and navigation features that are now in every smartphone. I want this system to be more tightly integrated with car features and act as a remote AV display for phone features using WiDi/Miracast, Bluetooth, WiFi services, etc. Once I get my prototyping parts ordered I'll probably starting documenting this on my blogspot site that posts to G+.

This part of New Hampshire may not have Mexicans yet, but Mexican Coke is starting to appear everywhere. Me gusta. Now I don't have to stock up on Passover Coke every year.

+Dat Moose​ I also buy bottles from the display rack at George Calef's, just north of the 125/9 intersection in Barrington. I'd think some mom and pop market in Rochester or Sanford would have the same kind of thing.

At least old me gets to bask in the beard respect I receive from hipsters.

There is a huge ass bird on the roof of my barn. I was able to get close enough to see it fairly clearly with my 6x rangefinder. +Barbara Hayes​ thinks it's a young eagle. This may be the same bird I saw circling my field last week with gray wingtips from underneath.

Or maybe two separate birds, eagle on the roof and turkey vulture in flight.

The April Fools' joke on me is that I need to update server certs and the private key is on a machine that was borked by a failed upgrade. Yay!

After three years of not being able to ride my snowmobile due to invisible illness, it's great to get back out there this season. Today I followed a narrow ski trail down by the bank of the lazy Bellamy just below the reservoir dam. A small snow drift obscured the side hill and the machine rolled into a tree while I rolled down the bank into the river.

Events like this really help put me in the moment. It took me about 1.5 hours to trudge and crab walk most of the way back through the deep snow and minimal trail. Finally decided to call in the cavalry due to calves cramping up. This has proved a very busy day with lots of exercise and outdoor time.

Please enjoy these photos from my snowmofailing jaunt.

+Travis Hayes Dawwwww! That's awesome. Yah fish and game take finding things like your sled very seriously. Loads of people get hurt and many die from being stranded in these temperatures. Now you know for next time.

I like my lighting the way I like my music: electro-industrial.

After a frustrating trip through various LED bulbs, I was directed toward these leftover stock units from SWITCH. $12/ea from my local +Batteries Plus Bulbs for the heaviest, most overdesigned, overbuilt tanks of the industrial lighting world. Incandescent light quality, instant on, dimmable, liquid cooled, can be used enclosed and in any position.

Anybody else have favorite products or tricks to share related to lighting or home automation?

+Robert Anderson front bucket and rear blower is a great setup for days like today where there's no place left to plow the snow. BTW, I've showed you mine, now I'm really itching to see the Anderson Compound.
