Million Dollar Idea

Spam filter for physical mail. Somebody run with it.

We must have been inserted into some sort of new homeowners database. Each day, several ‘official looking, if this was 1983 or so’ letters show up in the mailbox. Most of them are attempting to bilk me out of money for ‘special homeowner’s life insurance’ or something of that nature. Thanks, but no thanks.

There is a bright side to this spam…they all have return postage. Hence:

Fighting the system, one crude drawing of a robot flipping off spammers at a time. You’re all welcome.

Old Man Truck

I would be lying to say that it wasn’t disappointing to see my Silverado SS from the rear view mirror of my new Old Man F150.

NRA sticker?


Emma outgrew the SS about a year and a half earlier than I had anticipated. This 07 showed up on craigslist with 40k miles. Couldn’t pass it up.

I’m not kidding about putting some stars and stripes on the license plate. I can’t picture anything else on this big white thing.

Android IP Webcam Screenshot

I have to admit that I’m pretty impressed by the Foscam’s IR capabilities. I snapped a screenshot on my Droid last while we were getting the princess ready for her bath…

The lab was light-free, and I was connected to the camera’s web server via my 3G connection. Controls are fairly snappy, and the image looks good even when pushed via cellular. Response time is very quick on the network itself…but remoting in to the router does the trick nicely.

I’m keeping my eyes peeled for a second cam…set designated choppable. We’ll see…I’m growing attached to this guy, but really want to get into its guts.
