I knew there was magic smoke, but had no idea about the holy water

I just caught myself idly trying to work out what that resistor mass would actually be, and realized I had self-nerd-sniped.

I've also left a few solder blobs in my time...okay more than a few...okay it was probably the only thing I ever actually did to a circuit. "A blob here, a blob there...hey, it works now!...sort of."

You really have to sit and absorb this one. Every time I glance at it, I notice something I didn't see before. Enjoy!


Beautiful Volcano Pic

Eruption Perspective

I came across this last night and thought it was just gorgeous and a bit reminiscent of Lord of the Rings. If you click through, the photographer explains that this is not Eyjafjallajökull (that's on the right, still dormant when this was taken), but the equally-unpronounceable Fimmvörðuháls.
