I purchased a Go Pro camera for my wife for Christmas this year and thought I would build some type of pole mount for it. I went out to my shop to look for something that might work for a mount and found a good solution in my box of PVC conduit odds and ends. […]
I recently upgraded my main workstation to Windows 8.1 and shortly afterwards my computer started locking up and blue screening. I traced the issue to new Nvidia drivers that were installed automatically during the Windows 8.1 upgrade (Drivers 188.8.131.5223).

Unfortunately none of the fabric they use is pre-shrunk, so after my wife carefully […]
