Affiliate Links-Thanks

Though it is a very minimal kickback I would like to thank everyone who has purchased an item using one of the provided affiliate links. The money is used to provide additional content as well as offer an incentive to keep doing this. Every penny provides a little boost of energy and while it certainly will not put food on the table, it keeps me from thinking that this is all simply a waist of time. If by chance you have any negative experiences using one of the links I would like to know about it.

Back to work!

Lately vacations have been the work around the house variety. This year was different. I traveled down to Florida to witness my daughter's wedding and it was incredible.

Light Bar Plow Light

I found it interesting that there are really no compact light bar rigs for a plow lamp. The Problem: The light bar for my Jeep has 5 mounting brackets for overhead lights. I have successfully mounted and installed 4 lights, leaving the inside bracket for my plow lamp. Initially, plowing snow over the winter worked fine with the single jar style lamp/flasher which is mounted on an extension bracket due to it's size and shape. Come summer however, the jar style lamp is now in the way of the convertible top of the Jeep.

Adificial Intelligence

I find it quite amusing that the big Goo, in all of it's infinite glory, must use an advertising algorithm that looks something like this: x=x * 3 You browse for something, you purchase it and for the next three months you get to see that item display on every page you visit. Not references to something that others have bought that may go with the item, but the exact item.. over... and over.. and over..

My First Amazon Associate Earning

Just like that old dollar bill on the wall of your favorite restaurant, I have received my first commission on Amazon. I realize that it is slightly over a dollar, but I am hanging it on the blog wall anyway. To the person who bought the product, may you be blessed with good fortune! It is a hair short of the 1.5M that is my target goal, but a start none the less. It is also $1.42 more that YouTube has paid me since they have stopped monetization, so my hat goes off to Amazon.

Product Line

Creating artwork consumes a great deal of time and usually with little or no benefit.
I am hoping that offering some of it as merchandise will allow me to keep doing it as a sideline to my full time job.

Closed Captioning

So, another journey on the road to enlightenment! It turns out that to be able to post my new Blender Basics tutorials on Amazon, each video must also include closed captioning for our non-audio friends. Albeit for me to complain, it is well worth the effort, but it will however create a bit of a delay on the simple upload process.

The Perfect Gift

For Christmas, my boss surprised me again with an Amazon gift certificate... Awesome Boss!
To me, these are the perfect gift. I even noticed that as I browsed some Amazon products that it also noted "use your gift certificate" which I thought was excellent. How many times have you had a gift certificate, went somewhere and forgot to use it?
You can buy them at almost any store now, they are always the right size and it is something that nobody in their right mind would return.
Right?

NNN POC

Justin Z.
Here is a chroma version with green background as I mentioned.
I will post up another, but I removed the mirroring because it was washing out due to the green.
I will see if I can fix the mirroring, unless you prefer the non-mirrored surface version.
You should be able to right click and download move.
Size is around 2MB.
Resolution is 1920x1080
Chroma key as mentioned is 00ff00.
Respond to our YT thread for questions.
