Blue Cut Diamonds

I got tired of the bright colors of my Tesla Model S background hurting my eyes, so I made this Art Deco’ish desktop background from scratch just now.  It’s 1920 x 1200, but you can easily use GIMP to scale it to any size.  I highly recommend the “Sinc (Lanczos 3)” scaling filter in GIMP for this application.  Please let me know if you get any use out of  the image.  The second picture is a screenshot of it on my Windows 7 box.

My DIY IkeaHacked Standing Height Desk

I designed this as a standing height desk to be built to my actual (uncommon) dimensions. It’s meant to accommodate a treadmill at some point (still need to double check the dimensions for this part).  It’s to be constructed of cheap 2×4’s, dowels and glue, and 2 x Ikea 8′ Lagan Countertops. I put the expense at no more than $200, but it will probably be far less. — I hope to do some high quality renders soon. — -joshua

Edit 1:  I’ve been thinking more about the desk.  I’d like to find some sort of cool drawer-like container for the slots (e.g. banker’s boxes)?  It would also make more sense if it were modular, so it can be easily moved into tight spaces, by an individual. -j
