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."

I recently got an email from a reader named Abraham who posed an interesting question as follows: Hello Max, Happy New Year to you and thanks for all the information you send out to us. This is my first personal mail to you, although I have been your close and constant follower for a long tim......

I don't care what my dear old mom thinks, I honestly don’t think I have attention deficit disorder (ADD), although... Ooh, shiny!   I'm sorry. Where were we? Oh yes, I remember. I'm quite happy with my own company, and on those rare occasions when I'm trapped somewhere......

Whilst on the way into work several days ago, I heard on the radio that Apple is doing exceptionally well on the stock market these days. I don’t know why I care, because I don’t own any stock per se, but I must admit to having an interest in Apple having once met "The Woz," ......

My friend David Ashton from Australia tells me that his local Microchip Technology representative includes a "Joke of the Month" in his communications. David was kind enough to share this month's chuckle with me as follows:   Murphy's Law: Part 1 Nothing is as easy as it......

This is a funny old world and no mistake. I was sitting in the Pleasure Dome (my office) happily beavering away when someone dropped a package on my desk. When I opened this unexpected container, I discovered an SP-5000 Solar Media Player from the folks at Secur Products.     This......

Well, I have to admit that I have a great big Cheshire Cat-type grin plastered on my face at the moment, because the prototype for my Vetinari Clock project is now well underway.   Just to tease you, let's start with a small photo showing the current state of play, and then I'......

Until recently, I was under the impression that my computer system in general -- and my precious data in particular -- was reasonably secure against the forces of evil, but then my eyes were opened to the grim and grizzly truth.   As you may recall, a little over a month ago, my main wo......

Several days ago, when I started my truck after a night when the temperatures had plummeted to well below freezing, I observed a warning light glaring at me balefully from the console.   Of course this couldn’t say something useful like "Check Engine." Instead, the message w......

I don’t know what it is about them, but I am quite keen on using antique analogue meters as part of my hobby projects. I guess I just love the Steampunk genre, plus these meters add a certain "robustness" to one's designs.   I pick these meters up at Hamfests and electro......

I was looking around the Internet (as is my wont) when I ran across this t-shirt, which caught my eye and caused me to pause for a moment's contemplation.     This little rascal made me think of a number of things. First of all, it reminded me of a number of IT guys I've run......
