Gmail app sync issues on android

July 9th, 2014 No comments

I’ve been having some issues with the gmail app not syncing properly on my Nexus 4 phone lately.

Thought it was related to an OS update, but it turns out that it wasn’t.
It’s been happening to a lot of others and apparently google is investigating. In the mean time, this post’s description has solved my syncing problems (thanks Tracy):

AF Assist v5 – optics

May 22nd, 2014 No comments

Since I will be using off the shelf parts for the IR emitter (LED), I need to somehow focus the wide 100deg or 120deg light given off by the emitter.
The light wavelength I’m looking for is in the low 700 nm range as measured from two Canon flash units.

I’ve found an IR emitter that puts out more then enough light at 730nm (1080-1293-1-ND from Digikey).
To focus the light in a tight beam, I just ordered some parts from Newark.

The lenses are




I’m hoping one of these small lens with enclosures will do the trick.
Will post more once I get them and try them out.

The light out of the bare LED is way to wide, and these lenses should focus the light to a tight 10-16deg beam.

AF Assistant v5.0 – First look

May 22nd, 2014 No comments

It’s been a while since I posted an update on this project. Life gets in the way sometimes, but I’m back at it now.
The previous design enclosure that fits under the camera has been abandoned mainly because it makes holding the camera a little awkward. Especially when using some longer lenses when I need my left hand to grasp the lens itself the AF Assistant would not only get blocked (by my hand) but also make holding the lens a little weird.

Cooling solution

March 11th, 2014 No comments

I’ve seen a lot of mining rig cooling solutions out there, but this takes the cake for ingenuity.
I will try this in the coming weeks as I think it’s the best design I’ve seen yet.

And another guy on taking the same approach
