One Geek's Lens of Importance

I am a geek, a nerd, a writer, a gamer, all those things that were not so cool before the Dot Com revolution. I am an old geek, before we were COOL. I am not rich. and I am physically handicapped.

 

This is my world, here are things I like or am thinking about. My public thoughts and reviews of anything I feel like reviewing. I used to have this universe split between five domains. That's too much work and too confusing. Therefore I warn you now, not everything here will appeal to everyone. All types of free thinkers are allowed here.

  

Dyson built a lamp that burns for 37 years thanks to satellite tech

Looking to tackle lighting woes, the British company built the CSYS line of lamps that'll burn bright for 37 years. Using Heat Pipe technology, the lamp uses a system similar to what's found on satellites to keep eight LEDs cool and prolongs their life. The heat is pulled away from the bulbs and directed through an aluminum heat sink that spans the length of the lamp's shaft. Each of those LEDs sits in a conical reflector to cut down on glare and added eye strain

Irish Server, US court

Glad to see some countries fight for their sovereign rights. I would be of the stay out of the internet all governments camp. Except governments have given internet providers a protected monopoly. So the market can not self protect.

As I see it Sovereign Rights like Trademark and copyright must be defended or they are ignored!

Notebooks and Templates

SketchyNotebook

Warning this is an Active KickStarter project. I have backed, and may never become a true product. If the KickStarter funds and the product ships, I will review it here, just like any other product I may review. 

I am one of the super odd people. I live in the CyberWorld. I carry a smart phone, and a tablet almost at all times. Yet there are times when I use Pen and Paper by choice. Not because I must be because I wish to.

I go even farther into the deep dark depths of wierd. I use a fountain pen whenever possible. I even use a fountain pen to journal. That's right I journal on paper, actually I have a CommonPlace Book rather then a daily journal. But that is beside the point. 

There quite a few bound notebooks that i can use easily with Fountain Pens and other writing tools easily to Journal. I will I am sure be posting about all of them at some point. So far I have found only two notebooks that I would consider useful. Both are Disc Bound, and in fact the pages are interchangeable. 

  • M by Staples
  • Circa Disc Bound by Levenger

I can hear you question, what's the difference between a journal and a notebook?

The way I use the two words is important. A Journal is a bound book, you can't easily remove pages, and you certainly can not replace pages without pasting them onto other pages. A note book for me on the other hand is a book you can easily remove pages for a number of reasons. Like scanning or giving to someone else. In a few cases you can actually place pages back into a notebook, but often those are binder systems like the two mentioned above.

Okay so that is what a Notebook is, whats a template and who needs them?

Ah that's actually easy to explain. Most Fountain Pen friendly books are plain paper, blank, like a sketchbook. But sometimes you need something to guide you and focus you. Alot of the time we just find a PDF and print it. Sticking it under the page we are working on, Lines and Grid patterns being the most common. But sometimes its nice to have the templates provided.

Sounds interesting? Back the Project.


A Pen, A Ruler

HMM™ RULE/ONE

Warning this is an Active KickStarter project. I have backed, and may never become a true product. If the KickStarter funds and the product ships, I will review it here, just like any other product I may review. 

 

I don't know about the rest of you. But I find that sometimes good old fashion pen and paper is better then a digital answer. I personally have gone so far as to use Fountain Pens whenever I can. This Kickstarter isn't a Fountain Pen, it is a need I developed as I began to journal on paper again. Many of the best journals have no lines and I sometimes need a straight line. This project shows me that I am not alone.

A Ruler that is the holder for a pen. If this interests you by all means Back the Project..
