Re: EyeClops - Anybody have experience with these?

IR LED's cannot be seen by the human eye. Other night vision goggles, active and passive will see your IR LED's quite clearly. In fact, they will appear as though you had a head mounted flashlight. If it uses IR LED's, it's an active night vision system. Which means it emits it's own IR, which is re...

Re: What to put on a USB Drive

Re: Another one of those "will you survive" tests.

Um... I had a big problem with the "What do you do when the power goes out" question. There was "read a book", "go insane", "sleep", or "go outside". ... last time there was a power outage I grabbed the spare car battery, an inverter, wired everything up and turned the damn computer back on! ... wha...

Re: consumer foot power generator "WEZA"

While a foot powered generator might sound beneficial, it contains moving parts that I wouldn't trust to be around when I need them.
