Thing-a-day, Day 24: Fire!

I was angry with my PC today so I did what any decent geek would do: I lit it on fire! To achieve a long exposure shot on my Powershot S3, I used a recent build of the CHDK firmware (I chose the allbest flavor). This allowed me to override the normal 15 second maximum with a 64 second one. I also saw that some other really cool features have been added. Two that caught my eye are motion detection and a USB remote. The motion detection feature is apparently fast enough in some cameras to be used to photograph lightning and water drops, and the remote feature lets you build a remote control to trigger your camera (something a more expensive camera would have built-in.) Cool stuff!
