Computer upgrades – A History of my Computer

So I’ve finally upgraded my computer, Again, I guess. I’ve built my own computer ever since my university laptop (the Toshiba Tecra M3 — Pentium M 750 1.86 GHz, 512 MB RAM, 80 GB HDD) died. I remember when that happened … I opened it up and there was so much dust in it that it probably overheated and maybe something shorted out. It was a complete bust. I’m actually rather surprised that it lasted that long. University life is quite rough and it lasted the better part of about 4-4.5 years (almost my whole time at Uni). When I […]

DropBOB.ca -> Upgrades with a new look!

So I’ve finally pulled the trigger on updating my site from the lazy WordPress.Com to the self managed WordPress.Org … you can search online for the details of the differences, but the major changes for me are these: More freedom (I can change anything I want. Basically I have a free reign … Which is necessary when you’re OCD like me) Infinite plugins! … oh man I love these awesome plugins Better RSS (e-mail post notification management)

DropBOB Designs: learning a new skill!

So I’ve been wanting to do this for a few years now, but I’ve never had the patience to really devote some time to it … Until now. Rendering of partially designed board (top view) I’ve been learning circuit board design and component selection. I’m hoping to not only simplify the entire wiring design for my cold brewer. I’m trying to expand its capabilities tenfold.

Some Necessary Kitchen Upgrades: Cookbook Holder.

So the wife bought me a cookbook for Christmas: “Bob’s Burgers, Burger Book”. So, I got the hint. Build the damn cookbook holder Bobby! We’ve had this idea for a long time (by we, I mean Jenn), and I just didn’t have time (It was like the 4th or 5th thing on my imaginary to-do list). Here’s the book (after the jump), for anyone who wants to purchase (I’ts actually on special right now on amazon) It has some pretty epic Burger Recipes that I MUST try. Also, makes a great Backdrop for my Cold Brew Maker. The Bob’s Burgers […]

DropBOB PRO – Preliminary design update

Some of you may be wondering what I’ve been up to over the last little while. I haven’t posted anything, nor have I put my “Star-Lord” Costume up for sale. Well, it’s because something has been bugging me. I’m unsettled about one of my designs … and its preventing me from focusing on other things. As you can see from the above image, I’m working on a PRO version (i.e something you’d see in a coffeeshop or a coffee enthusiast kitchen). All, while improving on the DropBOB control mechanism.   You see I’m no longer just happy with having the […]

Project Industrial pipe shelf – Upgrade, Level UP!

  Puny shelf … I will destroy you! Remember that old industrial pipe shelf project from a while back … I combines a few 3/4″ pipe fittings and some pine wood planks into a 4 layer shelf (all for about $170 … download the CAD model here). Well, this shelf started getting a little crowded over the last few months. My wife asked how easy it would be to add another layer … Well my wonderful Jelly-Jube as long as you don’t mind me making some noise …

GIANT Lego Secret Stash!

A long long time ago, Jenn & I make a lego spice rack. You can read about the making of the block on her blog. It was her idea and I only helped a little … So, after we decided to get rid of the old spices, we needed to upgrade this lego project and make more realistic legos … with a little secret … I decided to make this post into a GIF party … all the cool kids are doing it. And, having lots of repetitive motion hakes this the perfect post to GIFIFY! Drill all six caps […]

Star Lord Mask – Functionality Upgrade

After wearing this helmet yesterday for the first time in public, I absolutely needed to perform this upgrade! Holy shit, you do not realize how trapped you feel when wearing a foam mask that does not open. Have you seen the movie: Man in the Iron Mask … The movie does not do this feeling justice. This is why I decided that I had no choice but to perform the surgery! So now, I can go to Vancouver Fan Expo 2016 without having to worry. I can wear this helmet the whole time. Drink my fancy cold brew coffee, without […]
