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.

Out with the New in with the Old

Right after my last post the newer version of MovableType that I had running decided to stop working (can't even log into the backend anymore). It resulted in me jumping back to version 3.33 which I have used for most of my websites in the past. 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.

Warrior Dash

Somewhat on a whim I decided to accept the offer some friends made me to run the Warrior Dash with them. Before this I hadn't even heard of obstacle course racing, and it had been years since I'd last run much of any distance, but it sounded like fun. It turned out that the Warrior Dash is pretty tame for an obstacle race (I had a much harder time on the running than the actual obstacles) but it was still a great time to be with friends, get a little muddy, and get some much needed exercise.

Here's a relatively short timelapse I took with a gopro camera to give you a sense of the course (and my own lack of athleticism):

Gardening Thoughts

Gardening is one of those things that I've always wanted to do but never felt I had enough time for. I had always assumed that to grow a successful garden you would need to put in a lot of time and effort to plant, water, weed. I also assumed that while harvesting was the fun part it was something you'd only get to do for a few weeks toward the end of the growing season. I was wrong.
