Jim's Gadgets

Gadgets have always fascinated me, since I was very young. I spent most of yesterday, gathering up many of my gadgets, taking lots of pictures. I will be posting pictures of my gadgets, with descriptions, and adding more .....

This is something most people nowadays will never see, and if they do find one, will most likely be sitting in an antique shop, or in a dark place. I remember watching the old films on these devices in school. Sometimes we had an audio cassette to go with the films, sometimes no audio. I have a few old films in the original canisters.

Here is my Archos 70 Internet Tablet 250GB, showing my main desktop. I have five desktops using Launcher. I think I can have up to seven desktops if I use a different launcher.

Archos 70 Internet Tablet 250GB ...

Finally got my Archos 70 Internet Tablet 250GB, after waiting for 71 days! Well worth the wait. I'm enjoying my Archos 70 everyday. Listened to the first 40 chapters of Psalms this morning. Trying out the new Dolphin HD browser. I still like the stock Dolphin browser. Finally got Zeam and TagHome. I like the stock Launcher better. I'll keep Zeam and TagHome just to play around with for awhile ....

Have over 600 apps downloaded so far. Checking out a few each day. Downloading files for an offline dictionary. Have several good Bible apps. Lots of audio and video music files. Using PowerAmp mostly for the music.

Coming up soon: More details on this awesome little tablet .....

Up on the Roof ...

Today I spent about two hours putting three tarps on the roof! The wind was blowing so hard, that it was nearly an impossible task! I had some heavy wood to try and hold down the tarps, but the wind was still too strong. I finally got two tarps stapled down, and the third one about half stapled, then a strong gust of wind came along and ripped the staples right out, and tore the tarp off the roof, along with the heavy pieces of wood!!!

I brought the tarp and wood back up the ladder, and finally managed to get the last tarp stapled down. Took at least an hour to get the last tarp stapled down securely.
