This is the night after tribal council. Russ is pissed that Parv and Danielle are in cahoots. They didn’t tell him about the plan. Rupert and Amanda talk. They want to bring Sandra over to their side.
When we first noticed these workstations, we were pretty surprised at how much tech was displayed. What’s even more surprising was that they all belong to the same person, a dentist from Istanbul, and she enjoys going through different configurations in order to set up the perfect home office.
I’ll be receiving a Velocite Geos prototype frame at the end of May. I’ve decided to build it up with Shimano Dura Ace Di2. Here is what my preliminary build list looks like. Since this is a budget weenie and I’m also sourcing parts from the second hand market, I’ve decided for a bunch of reasons to stay away from high-priced German carbon fiber parts. This is a “best bang for the buck” type of build. Ideally, it should have been built up with SRAM Red, since that is the lightest gruppo, but I decided to go with Di2. I’ve been itching to try it out.
The new (old) Polaroid camera, the Polaroid 300, is about to be released in May. That’s great news, because I always liked the instant photos that Polaroids took. However, there’s some bad news: it costs $90 (USD). On top of that, you’ll have to pay $10 for just 10 shots.
This is what I tweeted about today…

- 15:19 @20C Nope, this one is a carbon fiber frame. The Velocite titanium frame is a lot heavier, at 1.2kg just for the frame. #

Just saw that the new Velocite Geos frame weighs 877g in size L. Victor anticipates that the S size will weigh 790g. That’s pretty cool! The prototype frames come in a high gloss finish, necessitating more paint coats, so it can easily shed some weight if it’s got a raw finish instead with clearcoat.
One of the best things in Futurama was Bender. Sure, the professor was cool, but Bender just had that certain appeal, especially with his robotic drinking and smoking ways.
Recently, iFixit announced that it was going to create easy manuals that would allow everyone to do some DIY repairs on their tech instead of just creating more e-waste. As iFixit’s founder explains, e-waste is becoming a real problem in landfills everywhere.
