Sad that the Beastie Boys are suing the company for use of the melody.
Harbor Freight sells these cheap incandescent headlamps for like $3.00. For what they cost they are not half bad. Still, I’d prefer an LED over the incandescent bulb.
I had one of these Harbor Freight headlamps (HFHL) and a broken1 LED flashlight. The flashlight used a 1 watt LED mounted to an aluminium PCB. The flashlight’s driver still worked too so I used it and the LED to convert the HFHL.
A while ago the Wife Unit™ found some decorative metal numbers in a sale bin at the store. We both thought that they’d make great address numbers for the house and since they were dirt cheap we, bought them.
It didn’t take long for me to decided that I wanted to do something more than just hang them on the house. The numbers are raised, sort of reverse embossed, so the edges are exposed. My thought was to back-light the numbers for a cool nighttime effect.
I believe that the the comments by “Christine” below are not from a real Hannah customer. First, she (assuming here) is much too on point for me to think she is a real customer. Second, on one comment she used a different e-mail address than the others. Third, the e-mail addresses she used followed the format of fistname.lastname or firstnamelastname and neither of the e-mail addresses used the name Christine. I get the sinking suspicion that someone is astroturfing.
It’s unfortunately taken me some time to get to writing this but I think that it’s important enough to merit posting despite the time-lapse.
Hannah is an Oregon company that offers pet adoption and care services to Oregon residents. I’d originally heard of them through their radio spots where they advertise what seems to be their main shtick – Total Lifetime Care.
According to the ads, the Total Lifetime Care program will provide you with all the care your pet needs for a small monthly fee. The video below sums up the program rather succinctly (if a bit unnervingly given the creepy voice over).
