A Different "Chrome" Topic - Restoring Kodachrome Slides

My latest project is to find a way to physically restore damaged Kodachrome slides.  These are slides going back as far as 1941 which have unfortunately warped enough to make scanning a problem.  See: for the details.  Any advice you can give me would be appreciated!

Jumping Into Chromebooks (including Acer C720 Review)

Acer C720 Chromebook review
After cautiously waiting on the sidelines, I decided to jump into the Chromebook pool to test the waters.  The Chromebook I chose was an Acer C720.  Bottom line -- a great experience and excellent value!

Photoshop CC's 3D Monster Generator soon as the new Photoshop CC support for 3D printing came out, I decided to give it a try by adding supports to an existing .STL design.  But I had some strange, unexpected results...  Your input is welcome, especially if I'm doing something wrong!

Streaming content with Google's Chromecast

The topic of Google Chromecast came up a few times recently.  It reminded me that I saw a few ads for it on TV over the holidays and was wondering if anyone "got it" as to what it was supposed to do.  I thought some explanation was in order.  I'm not a Netflix user, but it works great for me on YouTube videos.

Tangling with the Cell Phone Services

My recent tangles with cell phone services -- Verizon seems to have become too big to deal with customers.  It has become hard to even pay them!

An experiment in progress...

Find my tech notes here...  I'd like to see if this setup is a good compliment for it to provide a place for commenting.
