One of my co-workers has a USB controlled foam rocket cannon. Cool right? Not anymore. I’m upping the ante:
That’s right. A 25″ gas and flint powered desk cannon capable of firing real ammo. And making a big boom. Nice.

I recently “finished” my corner desk. I put finished in quotes because it really is not done. I began work on a side under desk cabinet to hold my PC, printer, and other accessories. It will be a open cabinet with a pull out tray for the printer. The base cabinet is done. I need to put in the bottom shelves, some structure to keep it from racking, the pull out shelf, and a brace or two to attach it to the desktop. I also need to poly it which will take a few days on it’s own. I should have this cabinet done next week. I am also going to build another cabinet for the right side of my desk to hold my router, hub, VoIP gizmo, and wireless AP. That will probably be a few weeks out.
Speaking of cabinets. I am going to be working on some under cabinet lights for my kitchen soon. Hopefully this weekend. The plan is to tap into a power outlet to install a switch. Then I will run romex to two florescent tube lights, one on each side of the stove. Pictures if I don’t electrocute myself in the process.
I’m booking my July trip to Mexico today. My good friend Brian is getting married at a resort south of Cozumel and it is time to get the hotel and airfare taken care of. This 4 day, 3 night adventure will cost about $700 inclusive. That seems like a pretty good deal to me.
