We finished another bookcase. This makes three out of the seven needed for upstairs. (I will really be glad when this project is done.) The construction is quite simple. 2 1x8x8′ , 2 1x8x4′, and 8 1x8x46.5 inch planks and a sheet of 4×8 masonite board. The rest is done with 1 1/2 inch #6 screws and the staple gun.
I’ve got parts on order for a 24″x24″ LED panel light. This will be one snazzy light. The LED portion is supposed to arrive Wednesday, and the light-stand mount on Thursday. It looks like Friday will be assembly day.
Anyone want to volunteer to be my model while I test it out?
Tomorrow I have a presentation to give to the CSM (Church Service Missionary) Photographers. I went to put it together and Open Office kept crashing on me. I saw there was a new update, and so I downloaded and installed it and it didn’t crash after that.
Speaking of Open Office, I have found it to be the best “office suite” there is. I could never go back to using Microsoft Office (and especially now that MS Office is cloud based).
And, speaking of cloud based software… at the risk of sounding paranoid, in today’s era of espionage (Snowden, Clinton, Patriot Act, etc.), do you really want to put personal data out there on a cloud server? Remember, rule 1 of Internet privacy: There is no privacy on the Internet.
A Privacy Warning
It amazes me when people see the above warning, that they would still click the BLUE BUTTON!
Hey folks, what that warning is saying to you is this…
By clicking the above button, we will have access to EVERYTHING you’ve ever posed on Facebook, along with all your hidden data, including your password, and we can use it however we want to use it. So, please, make our day. We’re a bunch of bored hackers sitting in some 3rd world country just waiting to get some of your data so we can scam you and your friends.
Remember too, when you log in to that cloud service, the only thing keeping you from your data is the service itself and your password. And, as long as that service exists, the only thing keeping a hacker from getting to it is your password.
