Found this guy on my office floor this morning. I hate spiders. Didn't squish him, though. Kept him around long enough to check him out under the microscope and then dumped him outside. The camera on the new boom microscope can't get any lower magnification than this - I had it on the 1x objective and 0.5x reducer. Works well for PCB inspection and assembly, though.

Working on commercial tracker stuff today, and trying some tweaks to my SSTV gadget to try to make it work reliably with the new camera modules. They're driving me nuts, and I think I may have destroyed at least one of them.
