Making up for the past two years

This has become a regular pattern with me and blogging: Write a couple posts, long stretch of time, write a couple posts. I really want to be more consistent in my postings so I can at least have something to look back on and be reminded of what I've done over the years (as I'm pretty sure no one else reads these). There have been many projects since my last post, not to mention 3D prints, and a multitude of images to share. Upcoming posts to be written over the next couple of days:
Latest 3D prints
3D Scanning (both with the Kinect and the new Structure Sensor)
Gardening (some successes and failures)
Computer Recovery
Advanced Hard Drive Recovery
Warrior Dash (5k of fun)
Chemistry Experiments (and Explosions)
Quadcopters (and Tricopters)

And that should be enough for me to catch up on in the coming week.

I'll probably still come back to make changes to the theme in the coming weeks, but at least now I can continue to write new posts.

We recently found a family of 6 skunks living in our back yard. Sadly the local pest control doesn't deal with that sort of thing (not sure what they deal with as they didn't help with squirrels or a groundhog either) which leaves it up to us to attempt to disrupt the funk of the skunks.

After reading a bit online one trick, out of many we're trying, is to shine floodlights on them during the night because they aren't fond of light. Getting some floodlights was pretty easy, but we weren't sure we wanted them in our backyard as a permanent fixture:
