The Orange Blue

I’ve been publishing a few videos on YouTube lately… Some unboxing videos and screencasts. I’ve done a couple unboxing videos and a screencast. They can be seen here: GoPro Hero 4 Unboxing Anker Dual-Port Car Charger Unboxing Blue Microphone Unboxing Strava Segments Overview In each case, I could have used a better method of recording…

Strava

I ride my mountain bike two to three times a week. The rides aren’t long, usually an hour and the distances are reasonable, somewhere between twenty and twenty-five kilometres. The amount of information that gets collected, while using an app is staggering. I have tried many apps on my iPhone 5S but this one is…

Kayak Carrier

The perfect unboxing… or so I thought. I have three kayaks, two are for leisure, maybe fishing and the third is for whitewater. That last one is still on my list of things to get better at. Needing a better way to carry these things, I purchased, quite a while ago, a couple Kayak Carriers….

PSJ3 Monogram

Photoshop Journey #3… Today’s journey might be a little lame but it’s my journey and I was looking for something easy and quick. It’s finally nice outside and the snowblower needs to be put away. The tutorial is called How to Design a Monogram Logo of Interwoven Initials, quite the mouthful. To make the journey…

UnBoxing

I love surprises, always have. I love surprising my wife with little gifts when she least expects it, my son with my brilliance (ok… that might be a stretch) and myself with the odd story I post, if it makes me laugh. As a child, I would search our entire home, just before Christmas for…
