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've been meaning to bring everyone up to date as to the current state of play with regard to my various hobby projects, but so much is going on that I never seem to find the time.   For example, I spent a large part of this past weekend working on my BADASS Display. Even though the fro......

I must say I am in a bit of a quandary. Things are racing merrily along with regard to several of my hobby projects, including my Vetinari Clock and my Inamorata Prognostication Engine, but now I've hit a stumbling block.   The thing is that I'm planning on equipping both of the......

My wife, Gina The Gorgeous, is quite fond of animals. She has two stupid dogs and two stupid cats. How stupid are they? Well, allow me to show you this video of the dogs that I made a couple of years ago.   But I fear we are getting ahead of ourselves, so let's return to the tortuous......

My chum Rick Curl dropped into my office several days ago. We had both decided that we desperately needed some face-to-face time to talk about the current Doctor Who (our feelings are mixed at the moment), and also to try to wrap our brains around the implications of the last episode of the curren......

I got a rather thought-provoking email from a young lad called Irmo van den Berge -- one of three students who have recently launched an interesting open source Phoenard Kickstarter campaign.     There's so much to this little beauty that it's difficult to know where to star......

When I was a young boy -- say around six years old circa 1963 -- my mom and dad and I would go to the seaside for a week in the summer every year. We were accompanied by my Uncle Eric ("Bing"), my Auntie Joyce, and my cousin Anna, who was (and still is) a year older than yours truly. &n......

Hmmm, it appears that the title of this column has the potential to be a tad confusing. I'm not talking about music suppressors that are really annoying -- I'm more concerned with finding something that can help me suppress really annoying music. Let me elucidate (don't try this at hom......

Well, things are bouncing cheerily along, as they do. With regard to my previous column about locking down the final layout for my Vetinari Clock, we've pretty much boiled things down to the two choices shown below.       In the upper image, we have our tree-switch group......

Well, we're at a pivotal point. I'm poised to lock down the final layout for the front panel for my Vetinari Clock project. We've explored several alternatives scenarios in earlier columns (see this blog and this one too), and now I'd like to hear your thoughts on the final conten......

I just got an email from my chum Rick Curl, who poses a rather interesting question. Rick's query was as follows:   Hi Max -- just a random thought -- have you noticed that if you take a container of loose surface-mount components and shake it up, most of the components end up with the ......
