Friday Afternoon Cat Blogging


Cynical-Cat has some guidelines for cats:

Chairs and Rugs:
If you have to throw up, get to a chair quickly. If you cannot manage in time, get to an Oriental rug. If there is no Oriental rug, shag is good. When throwing up on the carpet, make sure you back up so that it is as long as the human’s bare foot.

Always accompany guests to the bathroom. It is not necessary to do anything . . . just sit and stare.

Photographing Flying Insects With High-Speed Photography and Lasers


Be sure to scan through the pages for some of his photos of insects he has taken with this setup. Very impressive.

The design begins with construction of a laser module. It is set up to contain 8 laser pointers, plus an additional IR (infrared) laser. This allows for sufficient expansion for other uses, including general high speed photography. A detector is provided for each laser. By pulsing the lasers, it is possible to connect multiple lasers to a single detector. That permits the use of fewer detectors and wires. Each laser can be turned on and off separately. LEDs show the state of each detector. One camera output is set up to handle the metering and the shutter.
