Studies have shown that a major component to dust in the home and workplace is shed skin cells.
Humans shed tens of thousands of these keratinized dead cells every day from all surfaces of the external epidermis.
The dust that builds up in your electronic equipment and gets kicked back into the air by fans and air currents is no different.
If you leave your gear all packed with dust, you’re breathing cast off nutsack.
Maybe now you’ll keep your mission critical gear clean, you slackers.

*prepares to post politically motivated spiel about how this state are a bunch of idiots, based on voting results*

Seems like it perfectly combines the disadvantages of a car and a motorcycle into one exotic, disappointing package.
Note that this one has no plate; it’s an unregistered Opa-Locka douchecasserole special.
Sorry! You’re not allowed to have light bulbs you can actually see by anymore.
It’s hilarious when modern technology fails at thoroughly ancient tasks.
This is a fun little thing I built for the children’s museum.
The pool for the remote controlled boats always had this ledge at the back and two static cranes (made of really strong steel, may I add!) at the back.
The former director of exhibits decided this should be an interactive feature adding a goal for guests who are more skilled at controlling the boats to aim for.
When you succeed, the amber beacon light flashes and the train rolls over like it’s going to pick up cargo. After a few seconds it departs.
Yes, those yellow relays are the ones equipped with the surprise diode 😉
This is the solution I came up with for the train control. There are gaps in the third rail to allow isolation. I pulled the spaghetti out of the locomotive and wired the motors to the wheels.
It works great. Or, if you put the locomotive on the track backwards, it drives its coupler right through the drywall. BANG!! 😉
Hey guys I accidentally came in contact with the HD-SDI jack on an AJA video processor set to change timecode and got sucked into the 1970s. Please send me ridiculous disco pants. Thanks!
And now, two mysteries:
Greenies. Where do they go? Who takes them? World may never know.
What is this beautiful thing? It’s about 3″ diameter and my best guess is it’s a flat, ironless rotor for a wound rotor induction motor. It’s video tape machine related.
