My '09 Accord Upgrades

Image
Greetings, everyone! I've mentioned my car before on this blog, but I've never written a whole post about it. For some background, I am the proud owner of a 2009 Honda Accord EX-L (2.4L i-VTEC). Since I got it in late 2022, I've done several tweaks and upgrades to make it my own. Here are some of them! Awesome Window Decal & Spoiler This decal is the ultimate way of showing off how sick my 15-year-old economy car is. It's a HONDA, baby! I also stuck on a spoiler for good measure. Backup Camera & CarPlay Unit Not much to say here. LEDs and Lighting I swapped out the dome lights for blue LEDs and put some LED strips on the driver and passenger sides for that sweet blue aesthetic. Walkman Mount I saved the best for last! My buddy James installed a couple of metal brackets that clip to a Walkman by the driver's seat. I simply plug in the AUX cable, and I can listen to all my mixtapes! It protrudes a bit but doesn't get in the way. It's also super easy to

A day in my life, as seen through a Sony Mavica!

Hey, everyone! Yesterday, I did something incredible: I recorded a 7-minute video on a Sony Mavica. For those unaware, the Mavica is a series of digital cameras produced by Sony that saved the photos they took to 3.5-inch floppy disks. If you want to learn more, I wrote a whole post about these things (and included some truly awful photos). Anyway, it turns out that my Mavica FD88 can record videos with a duration of up to 15 seconds. It's not a whole lot to work with, but each disk can hold 4 videos at a resolution of 160x112 pixels. Alternatively, you could fit 2 videos per disk at a slightly higher resolution of 320x240. I chose to record at a lower resolution so I wouldn't risk running out of floppies. I'd like to think that adds to the charm! Recording videos definitely drained the battery fairly quickly, so I had to charge it up once or twice throughout the day. The Mavica also got a little warm when recording. Otherwise, recording the videos was pretty painless! At

Meet Flaura!

Hey, everyone! I’m excited to announce that I have finally released another iOS app. This one is called Flaura, and it lets you take better notes on books! It offers a unique chapter-based note-taking experience that allows for better organization than the alternatives. It’s on the App Store, so go ahead and check it out ! It’s also worth noting that Flaura offers a Premium version (USD 0.99) that lets you add unlimited books to your library. It’s not a necessary upgrade for most people, but it’s a great way for you to show your support for my work! This app may appear to be fairly simple, but it was definitely challenging and time-consuming to develop. It’s hardly my most ambitious project, but I really enjoyed making it. Thanks for reading, and I hope that you like Flaura.
