My Cheap Ass iPad Stand Will Live On In Infamy

So I got an email from Instructables, 3 emails actually, all stating that I got a free Pro Account. Both for being featured on their main site and for being included in their upcoming book. Isnt that grand??? You wanna know what Awesome-Sauce I came up with that would get the editor's attention?

This Simple and Cheap iPad Stand took me all of a minute to make, and cost me about zero dollars and zero cents. I put it up on instructables for the hell of it on a lazy day about a year ago. Mainly coz I never put anything up before. Within an hour, the project got featured, and got thousands of hit. I am guess it was the first iPad stand tutorial on instructables, and why it got so much attention. But whatever, I was actually kind of embarrassed that it was such a hit. It looks so janky and cheap. I wasnt expecting so much attention for it. Whatever, so a year goes by and now this! I guess the editors liked it enough to remember it. I will confess that I still use it as my iPad stand. there really wasnt a need for another after I made this. It is sturdy and works as it should, best of all, it was free! Anyway, yeah, so who woulda thunk that this crap would make it into annals of history. Not I....

If my life boils down to me being remembered for my mediocrity, then I guess I really made it as an American ;)

365 Day 78: Instagram Week: Italy 1

It's been crazy lately. With leaving my old job and starting a new one. These next few weeks are going to be a bit hairy, so Ive decided to do an Instagram week (or 2...or 3!). I know I know, "Instagram?! PHHFFFT!!!" Yeah, but all the fun stuff I had planned had to go by the wayside. As soon as things die down, I will get back to the nitty-gritty. But for now, try to enjoy the blandness. I didnt want to leave anyone hanging...

And yes, I know. Last week's iPhone week seemed like it was an Instagram week as well, but really it wasnt, I used different apps (as well as Instagram), and all the photos were actually taken with the iPhone. This week are all pics taken with an Olympus E-P2 then filtered in Instagram. Hey at least I put some thought into it :P

and BTW, I'm no huge fan of Instagram or anything, I mean it's cool and what not, but there arent that many filters which makes things a bit repetitive, and the real killers is that you can only size at 612x612. WTF is that about?! I just used instagram for the hell of it. I mean, why the hell not. Everyone else is...
