Balloon Jam 5 Pictures
- - - -
I’m close to uploading all the photos for mbd2.com balloon jam 5. I would like to thank everyone who came and participated in this jam. It was fun, educational, and entertaining.

I have just started to develop a table of contents for the pictures and have added information to the pages. I will be editing the pages in the next couple of weeks adding footer information and commentary about the pictures. This will be an ongoing process until I have all of them completed.

Here is the link to view the photos

P.S. Photos missing are from my camera, will upload them in the next couple of weeks. Will keep you posted.

Review: BLUE Digital Badge
- - - -
I the middle of November I started to carry a new BLUE digital badge. Here is a quick review of the product.

Appearance – Excellent! Strong magnet will hold the digital badge on secure.

Operation – To operate the BLUE badge you will need to use three buttons, one button to accept the function and two others to page up and down alpha, numerical, and special characters like $, /, ^,{, etc…

Messages displayed: Six messages can be displayed along with controlling the brightness and speed of the display.

Battery – The BLUE digital badge requires a 3.5 volt batter. This is different by from the 3.0 volt batter used in the RED digital badge. The BLUE badge can use the 3.0 volt batter, but runtime will be reduced.

Cost – The BLUE digital badge is advertised at $34.95 which is a very completive price. But this does not include the inferred device (RAT), cables, software, case, and extra batteries. These extras bring the total over $60.00. Battery cost is more expense too.

Conclusion: If you’re going cheap and do not need to change your messages, then I would strongly recommend the BLUE digital badge. One of the weakness of the BLUE digital badge is it inability to edit a message. If you misspell the word, you’re going to have to re-key your message. This can be time consuming depending on message length. If you do decide to use the optional inferred device you will need a computer to attach this device. Unlike the RED digital badge which comes with a portable RAT, the BLUE digital badge attaches to a cable off your computer and is not portable.

User friend is not the strong point of this product. It’s like a watch you get at Christmas. Looks great, has multiple functions - tells time, stop watch, alarm clock all with the same three buttons. Most people are happy just to set the time and date correctly.


I do have to say the BLUE LCD display is an eye catcher. Compared to the RED display, I like the blue. I would suggest that if you order this product, get the software, cable, and inferred board. It will save you time and frustration and make the BLUE digital badge usable right away.

----
Looking for something different, something that is not to expensive and can make you standout in a crowd. Then consider a BLUE LCD Digital Badge, only $34.95. Self programmable, 18 hour runtime, BLUE display, learn more about this new cool product.

Update Achieve Notices
- - - -
Boy, have things changed. When I first started sending out update notices, it was just a couple of line saying “hey, new pictures at...”, but this site has grown bigger, and bigger, and with cooler stuff. As a result, the two-line email has now gone to the ezine format. I have now started archive these messages and will have a link off the update notice form and at the end of the email.
