While kidnapping puppies for an evil scientist who uses dogs as test animals, a St. Bernard puppy escapes and is adopted by the Newton family, despite the opposition of the grumpy father. The children name him Beethoven, and he starts by ruining the house on a regular basis. While growing up, Beethoven also helps the family in various ways. On a trip to the veterinarian, the latter (who is the evil scientist from the beginning) devises a scheme to take the dog. He visits the family, simulates being attacked by Beethoven, and convinces the father to get the dog put down. The family discovers that their dog is not actually going to be euthanized, and follow the veterinarian to his lair, where Beethoven has managed to escape and causes chaos among the villains. Having been alerted, the police arrives and arrests the culprits, and the Newton adopt all the other dogs that were prisoner from the villains.

Bed Reading Lamp

Käännös: [ Google ]

Kategoriat: [ Askartelu ]

For quite a while I have been dreaming about a lamp for reading in bed that would be equally usable when lying on my belly or sitting with my back on the wall. It would be wide enough to uniformly light an open comic book (slightly larger than an A3 paper sheet) without causing a glare on the paper, meaning that it should light from above. Finally it must be made of a strip of warm white LED, its brightness must be adjustable and must consume no power when it's off.

And because making things is fun, I wanted to make it myself. There it is.


It's made of 60 cm of LED strip glued on the inside of a 15×15 mm aluminium profile, and it's powered by a 12 V, 500 mA power supply, via a dimmer (that has also silly features like strobe effect, blinking and pulsating, but that's no good for reading). The power supply is connected to the mains via a wire equipped with a switch (that effectively cuts the power to the power supply when it's off).

To meet the requirement of reading in two different positions, the angle of the aluminium profile can be changed by rocking it. I had to solder thinner wires to the LED strip to prevent it from acting like a spring and holding the lamp back when rocking it.

Monty Python's Life of Brian

Käännös: [ Google ]

Kategoriat: [ TV/Elokuvat/Monty Python ]



Brian is born one stable away from Jesus. As an adult, he falls in love with Judith, who is a member of the People's Front of Judea. Brian joins the rebel organization, and after a failed attempt against Pontius Pilatus, he barely escapes the clutches of the Roman leader. In an attempt to hide from the Roman legionaries who chase him, he pretends to be one of the many prophets who speak on the street, but for some reason he attracts an audience who follows him everywhere. Brian is eventually captured by the Romans and sentenced to be crucified. As is the tradition, Pilatus asks the crowd which one of the condemned men should be released, and Brian's name is called. Alas, due to a misunderstanding, another man is released, and all of Brian's friends acknowledge that his martyr will be a great help to the People's cause, and leave him to die.
