Re: Quadcopter!

One thing I almost posted but didn't...there is a Dutch artist that had a cat. The cat died. He had it preserved with taxidermy. He turned the cat into a quadcopter. Yes, you read that right. A dead cat quad copter. You can find it pretty easily on YouTube. It's one of the most bizarre things I've s...

Re: Quadcopter!

You can also skip the gimbal and post process the video to smooth it out. It's not as good, but not bad. Yeah, that wouldn't be too bad. The thing it does though is dampen the movement when the copter initiates a move. When it is stationary and then accelerates, you get a dip in the view before it ...

Re: Quadcopter!

Oh, I want one so bad...

B&H sells the copter with a basic Go Pro mount for $479.

The auto stabilizing gimbal, however, is more than the copter, at $699! (Also need a $69 copter upgrade kit)

And then of course, there is the camera itself...

Re: IKE Shirt/Sweatshirt - Looking to place an order?

This is going to fall into the "TMI" and "off topic" categories, but here goes. Oh, I have a diet program. It's called Nutri-Steve. I figure I know what Nutrisystem would tell me to do, so I don't need to pay them for the advice. Nutri-Steve is very simple. Drop all fried foods,...

Actually, I can scroll that way on my HP laptop and Chromebook trackpads, I just didn't think of it for a tablet interface.

Re: I need your help

A question: When your device is turned sideways on the opening screen, it's difficult to scroll with one finger. But you can scroll with two fingers on an iDevice. Is that also true with Android? Wouldn't have guessed it, but yes, you can. Looks like it's more a side effect of multi touch zooming w...

But wait, is the Menu icon cut off?



Oh, the page is just ever so slightly zoomed in. I must have done that accidentally.

It scrolls on Android, but you have to grab somewhere that is not a section selection to move it, and that space is limited.

Re: I need your help

Looks good in Chrome on Android.

I would suggest scrolling the content the other way, and having the menu button at the top left instead of the right. It feels backwards compared to what apps typically do.

Re: 3rd annual IKE Kite retreat! September 21st / 22nd

I've got my annual golf outing on the retreat weekend in, Michigan City, Indiana.

We usually golf Friday and Saturday, and travel Sunday. I may be able, depending on my flight, to come to the Dunes on Sunday.
