» Front Range Hiking Trail Closed After Damage From Possible Tornado. Wow, seems like very specific damage to a small area.     #


» Storage for Photographers (Part 2). Impressively comprehensive though there's a lot of "I don't know other solutions so I assume they must be difficult" (things like FreeNAS and using Linux for backups.)     #

» I just found out, via this HN comment, that Firefox can take a "full page screenshot" (meaning the entire web page, not just what you see on your screen.) This is fantastic and easy to do:

In Firefox press Shift+F2, then type "screenshot --fullpage" in the command line at the bottom of the page. No addon, plugin or extension needed.

» Making storage trays for my socket set. They came out pretty nice, I'm impressed.     #


» Making Coin Rings. An Imgur gallery that uses less specialized tools than the video from yesterday, but it will still take at least a little investment (and probably some ruined coins until you get good at it.)     #


» Find the Wi-Fi Password for Your Current Network with the Command Line. Handy.     #

» Movie Bar Code, distilling movies to their color essence, some are amazing.     #


» The 2 Minute Coin Ring - In Real Time. This does assume some specialty tools. I wonder if he made the video to sell the tools, or devalue the coin rings you may see for sale elsewhere, or both?     #

» When I travel I prefer to use a VPN on my phone and laptop when I'm over wireless I'm not too sure about. Fortunately you can install OpenVPN on your own virtual servers pretty easily:

The added bonus is that when I travel internationally I can still watch Netflix with the US catalog since my VPS systems are all in the US. Netflix does this thing where they give you the catalog for the country you are in, not where your account is out of. This means I can also let friends who have Netflix from other countries watch the US catalog easily.     #

» Teardrops n Tiny Travel Trailers forums and Teardrop Travel Trailers. In spite of having a way cool utility trailer/tent right now I still love the thought of these (just no way to haul the dirt-bike or quad...)     #

» Nordfor sola - North of the sun. I just saw where Vimeo is making a "purchase" (meaning you can actually download the movie and play it at your leisure) for $10. I'm totally in for something like this at that price (doing the rental thing was going to be more hassle than it's worth to try and get it on my TV...)     #
