New MakerBot 3D printer. No, it's not the one you might have seen before. This is newer. [link]
I need to spend more time with the brick press on the farm. I'm going to model all the parts and print them on one of these to make sure I have it right. And then I think I'll release the plans for anybody to get at. The part that I'm working on now is missing some key measurements.

Confused dog.

You know that schmuck who made it look like ACORN supports prostitution and who tried bugging a Senator's office? Now he's tried to make it look like a CNN reporter tried to seduce him for information. [her take] [another article including a news video]

I'm not a football fan. First I heard of Pat Tillman was when he left football to go to Afghanistan. It was a shame when he died, but I didn't read the articles, read the books, or watch the movie about him. But I like this interview with his brother.

An article about how atheists deal with life threatening illnesses. [link]
