30:00 Eclipse Photography!
Eclipse 2017 is almost here!!! Shannon built a camera filter for solar photography with a SIOTI modular filter holder, a solar sheet, and some tape and cardboard. Where do you attach the filter? How big will the sun be with a 240mm lens? A 1000mm lens? Find out in the video!

07:47 Don’t Have Eclipse Glasses?
We bought eclipse glasses early… if you can’t find any, we’ve got links to check at Amazon, what to look for in your local welding shop, why the welding glasses at the big box store won’t work, and, hey, if you have a cereal box, a couple of Pringles cans, or paper for a pinhole projector… you can safely view the eclipse!

15:03 G-SYNC GAMING
Alienware sent us their new 25″ 1080p G-SYNC monitor, aka the AW2518H. We’ve never tested G-SYNC (or AMD’s FreeSync) or a 240Hz monitor before! We walk you through what G-SYNC does to fix screen tearing, and how to set it up in the video!

27:30 Fire Maps
Never traveled in the West during the summer? You might not have checked a fire map: The Oregonian has a slick one for the whole US, you can check official state maps for Oregon, California, Idaho… you get the idea!
