Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.

    Absolutely beautiful! And so very emotional. The narrators speak of Curiosity as their child, seeing her own shadow for the first time, and taking her first steps, or a mother bird raising her hatchling, and then watching the baby bird fall out of the nest and fly.

    Wow. I’ve always figured that calling the moon landing hoaxes was pure silliness. But you’re right. Those are foot prints!!
