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."

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......

In many respects, my wife (Gina The Gorgeous) and I are not always on the same page when it comes to our television viewing pleasure.   For example, Gina is "glued to the set" when it comes to programs like Dance Moms and 19 Kids and Counting, which I regard as absolute dross. Con......

Recently, quite a few people have been inquiring about the state of play with regard to my Vetinari Clock project, so I thought this would be a good time to bring everyone up to date.   I did run into a slight problem when I discovered that one of my prize analogue meters intended for use i......

Do you already know about the ScratchDuino? This little scamp is a simple, interactive, highly customisable open-source robot construction kit based on the Arduino.   The basic kit includes two light sensors, two contact sensors, two reflective object sensors, and an infrared eye. Everythin......

What I'm about to tell will doubtlessly appear mind-numbingly obvious to you, my astute readers. But what about the person sitting in the cubical next to you, or your "I know everything there is to know about everything" teenage son or daughter, or your "how do you make the DVD ......

A few days ago I received an email from my chum Mike Hibbert, who is a columnist for the computer and electronics hobbyist magazine Everyday Practical Electronics in the UK. Mike's message was short and to the point as follows:   What ho! Max. This is just to let you know I've l......

There are quite a lot of diverse aspects to consider with regard to a project like my Bodacious Acoustic Diagnostic Astoundingly Superior Spectromatic (BADASS) display.
