There are always two sides to an issue, only if you have no idea what the issue is about.

Using Mirrors to Decrease Projector Throw Ratio

January 11th, 2011 | Posted by pftq in Blabberbox | #
     Been doing a lot of work with pocket projectors lately.  One problem I've run into with them is the throw length.  It's no fun having something portable if you still need a lot of space to do any projecting.  So I did some experimenting with mirrors to see if I can "simulate" the extra distance for the projector without actually using much space. Cheesy


     I did some reading before diving into this and one point I noted was that surface mirrors tend to retain a lot more light than the conventional glass mirrors you get in stores.  The glass mirrors are basically coated surface mirrors to prevent scratching.  What I used were regular mirrors, but I thought the result was good enough for me.

     The main issue I'm contending with right now is whether to use a convex mirror which greatly increases the size of the image or just a regular mirror, which prevents distortion and preserves a bit more brightness. Grin

     I remember it was only a year ago too that I was mentioning how surprised I was pocket projectors even existed. Cheesy This will be very useful one day hehe

Thinking you subconsciously act against your will is just a conscious act of denial.

Yahoo Mail - Archiving Messages

Downloading emails from the Yahoo Mail...

     I just spent the last 2 hours looking for how to download emails off of Yahoo.  It is normally under Mail Options, but after they "upgraded" the interface, a lot of features went missing.
     To archive your messages, you basically have to find your way back to the old Yahoo Mail Options page.  Yahoo's Help site would tell you the feature no longer exists but it's still there, just buried.
To get there...[More]

You say you want to make a change in the world.  What will you do once you attain it? What's preventing you from doing that already?

If you know what ought to be done, then do it.  Don't cite an excuse for your action.
