New Year, New Homepage!

Firstly, I am sorry for the recent absence. A lot has changed over the past two weeks. Here is one of those changes. To start off the New Year, and our new life in Nashville, I’ve redesigned my homepage. It is simple and minimal (my style), but hopefully it is also straightforward, and intuitive. Now the following domains will redirect you to gatl.in:

Please leave comments and let me know if you like it or not. I wish everyone a safe and prosperous New Year!.

LawnBott LB3200 Evolution

LawnBott

The LawnBott shears up to 30,000 square feet of grass all by itself. The sensor causes a directional shift whenever the mini mower bumps into an object at least 4 inches high or detects a perimeter wire you’ve laid out. When the rechargeable lithium batteries start to run down, the little guy returns to its docking station to juice up. And it uses only about $10 worth of electricity a year, so even the greenest gardeners have zero reason to stress. The bot can be programmed to a regular schedule, and it’s so quiet you can set it to mow at the crack of dawn while you sleep in.$2,499, lawnbott.com.
