If this was the first such request, I’d ignore it. Unfortunately, this is only the latest of many requests I have received from college engineering students wanting me to help them duplicate Jamison’s 6th grade science fair project.1 As is typical, he is requesting information already provided.

Sad.

But wait — there’s more

  1. Jamison’s project is based on the Instructable, “Low-Power Wireless Charging.”

SMF Sunset

Across I5 from SMF

Heading to the airport after a couple of days in Folsom, I watched the sunset through the oleanders as I drove north out of Sacramento. The freeway turned west toward the airport and the Sacramento River, the light show playing dead ahead. Taking the airport exit, I turned left away from the airport, over the freeway, and pulled over to snap this shot.

Another successful detour. :-)

Late Afternoon in the Backyard

http://youtu.be/Q6mIhyFbvhk

There were more defined clouds today than the last time1 I tried a backyard time lapse video. I figured it was a good time to try again.

There was more wind, so I decreased the interval between shots from 30 seconds down to 15. I should have used a 5 second interval, or even shorter.

I also need to get an AC adapter for my cameera. Keeping my point and shoot camera on for 350 pictures really depletes its battery. The cold weather doesn’t help.

1Also the first time.
