    also spent 3 days at the beginning of the week with a very nice guy from Olympus to test drive a laser scanning confocal microscope that I'm rewriting a grant for. He brought an all singing all dancing version with him that is about $550,000, but we're asking for a simpler one for just $330,000

    here's a mouse brain lesion. Blue = nuclei, green = actin (a cytoskeleton filament), not sure what red is labelling (colleagues work)


    next up is an autofluorescence image of a fire worm (polychaete annelid) - the spikes are calciferous and break off in your skin causing either burning itching sensations or long term numbness


    close up of the spikes (chitae?). My colleage was super excited by this image as some of the autofluorescence is seen only in the tips of the spikes, which might be the causative agent of the numbness. Long way down the road, but that might lead to new anaesthetics. Or not, given that it took over 18 months for the numbness in her finger tips to wear off when she was collecting them.
    Have you tried focus stacking the images using Zerene Stacker?

      Hi elf, they're all 2D projections of 3D stacks. I can't remember how many images were in the Z-stacks of the fire worm or brain slice, but the worm images were around 60-70 images per stack with the best focused DIC (white light) image pulled out and merged with the GFP 2D projection. In fact, one of the cooler things I was able to do with the gonad images was rotate the 3D image and capture end on, side on and top down images from it to show how the cells overlap in one plane but not others. That one's going in the grant I'm supposed to be rewriting right now to buy one

      • Ordered 1um 2-axis dro kit for my lathe direct from china..next up I'm probably cussing how to fit the rather bulky scale to crosslside. Price was right tho: 215 euros for entire set including postage.

        • I added 98 poly bins (7x14) to the side of my Lista tool chest. I have 210 bins up on my loft (35x6), and 40 (4x10) on the side of another tool chest. I also have several hundred down in my wood shop but a lot of the bins in the wood shop belong in the metal shop and lots of bins in the metal shop belong in the wood shop so I have a lot of swapping to do. I can't wait until they are all organized and all of the bolts/nuts are in my metal shop and all of the nails, screws, etc. are in my wood shop.

              The kart used to be a Razor buggy for my son. We hopped it up and put a big 48V electric motor + speed controller + batteries, and I rebuild the drive train and put on some nice go-kart tires. This is what it originally was. My son also added a CD/stereo, xmas lights, head lights but then took then off, etc. He loves adding stuff onto it.

                  I bought many hardware lots at several auctions, and I've also bought many, many assortments of all kinds over the years. Fasteners, screws, nuts. bolts, washers, lock washers, metic, standard, etc, etc, etc.

                    I just want a good assortment of the black ones with socket heads.

                      I think that may have been Tundra Twin Track.

                        • That is quite the haul TTT! I'd love to have that selection in my shop!

                          But what I was referring to was some sale on a similar assortment, just not as many. It was from some place like McMaster, fastenal, MSC, or the like. It was a $400 (or there abouts) assortment and may have came with a storage rack of some kind.

                                Does earthquake insurance cover the effort to re-sort all the stuff that would be dumped onto the floor? <G>
