Hungry Squirrels

February 1st, 2009 No comments

Put a little food out for the squirrels, and they went crazy.  One found a peanut, and then buried it in a snow pile. The pile was in the road, so it may not have been a good plan.

Microsoft Photosynth

January 31st, 2009 No comments

I really want to make my own Photosynth, but I probably need a better camera. My 6 year old Sony is really slow.

This video comes from TED.com. Blaise Aguera y Arcas gives an impressive demo of Photosynth.

Check out the Photosynth site to make one.

Tassimo Coffee maker – Review by a non-coffee drinker

January 29th, 2009 No comments

We recently bought a Tassimo single serve coffee maker at work. I was tired of the old coffee maker, because nobody would clean it. It was kind of like that episode of The Office, when nobody would clean the microwave. We almost got to the passive aggressive note stage.

We ended up getting the basic Bosch Tassimo, without the water filter. The extra $40 for the version with thes water filter, seems a little ridiculous. I don’t drink coffee, but it does make hot chocolate.

Pros –

Very little mess with the t-disks. Only the milk disks seem to leave a little residue.

Large variety of drinks it can make. Coffee, Tea, Latte, Cappuccino, and Hot Chocolate.

The Hot Chocolate is really good. It much richer than I used, so I usually water it down.

Cons –

Does not make a large cup of coffee. It seems to only half fill most “normal” sized coffee mugs.

The system is automated, but you end up watching it make the coffee
