Relief from Robo-Calls?

I wonder if this will make any difference? Politicians and services that claim to be exempt will still robo-call people on the National Do Not Call Registry.


Gundam compilation

Saw this on Ngee Khiong. The kids will like seeing it. Ngee Khiong always has good coverage on most things Gundam related and I’m constantly looking there to see what’s new. Edit: Sunrise took it down. Bummer.


Began assembling the MG Gundam Exia

Lately I have been catching up on my Gunpla stash pretty well. Here’s the start I got on the MG Gundam Exia. The picture above shows I needs to straighten out the decals.  As with all of the current Gunpla, this one looks like it has a lot of potential. I’m returning back to work […]

Good Nikon D5000 review

Over at Planet Neil is a good real life review of the Nikon D5000 w/50mm AF-S lens. The high ISO shots tell it all.


Acela to DC mini vacation

My son is a huge train fan so we are going to take the Acela from Penn Station to Washington DC.  The plan is to get to DC and spend lots of time in the Smithsonian. He’s more excited about the train than he is going back to the Air and Space Museum. If there […]

Flickr Exif Info Greasemonkey script

I’m not a huge Greasemonkey script user, but the one’s I do use are all for Flickr. I just found this Flickr Exif Info for Greasemonkey script which places the info I’m looking for on the photo page. Very cool.
