There is so much amazingly cool "stuff" to see and do that I'm amazed I find the time to get any real work done. In my blog I will waffle on about the books I'm reading, the projects I'm building, and the weird and wonderful websites I blunder across. Please Email Me if you see anything you think will "tickle my fancy."

In my previous blog on the topic of my Vetinari Clock project, we considered a number of possibilities for the positioning of switches on the front panel, and we ended up with a number of contenders that we named Options A through G.

Several days ago, my chum Paul was visiting me in my office. He'd wandered over from his cubicle in the next bay to take a brief coffee break.  Paul had been admiring the current state of play of my Inamorata Prognostication Engine, so while he was here, I opened my browser and brought up......

Anyone knowledgeable of the specifications of telecom protocols will recognize that they are both detailed and complex. So it is surprising -- especially given the revelations of whistle blowers such as Edward Snowdon and the current cyber security fixation -- that the Optical Transport Network (O......

I am the luckiest of lucky little scamps. Why so? Well, I don’t think we need to dwell on my legendary good looks. Also, the fact that I'm a trend-setter and leader in fashion goes without saying. What I'm talking about is the way in which the fates seem to throw the dice of life so ......

Do you remember my recent blog about the Dr. Duino diagnostic shield that you can use to diagnose problems in your Arduino Uno and chipKIT Uno32 shield stacks?     Designed by Guido Bonelli Jr., this little scamp was a successfully funded Kickstarter Project. Well, I was just rootin......
