Geek Glassware Launching soon

Here’s a snap of our starting inventory. Just finished up all these glasses last night 🙂 After some personal fulfillment we will be putting them on Etsy!

  • Aperture: ƒ/32
  • Camera: NIKON D90
  • ISO: 200

View from the cockpit

Just hooked up my left flank monitor, sadly it’s a TN panel, so it’s viewing angle isn’t so hot.

My main two (Samsung 245BW) are both IPS though, but the third monitor was just sitting around…might as well, right?

There’s also a fourth, but it’s actually my bedroom TV mounted on the other side of the room, so while technically it’s a monitor, I don’t really use it for anything except watching my terabytes of movies/tv shows.

  • Aperture: ƒ/27
  • Camera: NIKON D90
  • Taken: 29 March, 2012
  • Focal length: 24mm
  • ISO: 200
  • Shutter speed: 8s

Here’s a photo from my actual seat (had to employ a low mag. fish eye)

  • Aperture: ƒ/27
  • Camera: NIKON D90
  • Taken: 29 March, 2012
  • Focal length: 24mm
  • ISO: 200
  • Shutter speed: 8s

if you look at the EXIF data, the shutter speed isn’t lying. I had to pause the movies so I could take a nice high aperture photo with no flash.

It’s being reposted. Next week. Subscribe if you like, or just check back. I pinky swears it.

I will have a 200dpi .pdf version, about 225MB, and a 600dpi .psb version, about 2.21GB. Download at your own leisure. Smaller versions will be available for viewing in your browser. I may make a publicly tracked torrent, but I don’t think it will get much traffic and it may be easier to just directly download it via HTTP. I also may do a piece wise download to make it easier on some lower bandwidth guests.

Merry Christmas Robin!

We shared our gifts early, and now I can share mine to Robin with you early 🙂
For her Christmas present I took a page out of my buddy’s book and made her a brand. Business cards, personal web-portfolio-resume-thing, customized laptop, and a very special Robin at robinkurachik dot com email address. Here’s the business cards:

How I feel about the Android soft button placement

Those are nooses, not light bulbs.

Seriously Android, you need to make this a standard. It’s annoying as turd, and this is coming from an Android fan-boy. Pick one, and enforce it.

Also, pick an aspect ratio, and stick to it as well. I love the options but having too much freedom makes it damn annoying to develop/design for, not including the branding disassociation.


Sometimes I just have to post other people’s work. This is one of those absolutely f’ing epic times. Source:
