Holiday Maker Tip: Put gum drops on your LEDs. They make great diffusers and look really nice. Red and yellow seem to work the best.

Android Things on Raspberry Pi 3. Maybe now we know what that Raspberry Pi branch of AOSP was for. Since I am working on some home automation devices maybe I will check out Android Things and Weave. Perhaps Weave supports esp8266…

As a software engineer, I'm convinced that electrical tape is a required structural element in any hardware hacking.

... along with random kitchen plastic ware.

This is the replacement power supply for the tiny milk fridge that goes with my coffee maker. So it's an essential piece of hardware to keep me sufficiently caffeinated to function well.

It turns out that the manufacturers power supply is unbelievable crap (I've gone through two of them), and it's hard to find 9V / 20W supplies.

Their service department is really bad. Don't take your car here!!! I took my van here for a simple dashboard switch replacement that was covered under warranty. It would have taken me less than 5 minutes to swap the part myself with only a simple flat head screwdriver. After making an appointment, I was told my car would be ready in about 3 hours and they would call me when it was ready. Not only did they not call me, it took me 7 calls and multiple messages just to find out that 36 hours later they still hadn't touched the van. When I finally went over there in person to get the van out of there, they told me that they determined that I had a bad switch (DUH!) .... and I they also performed a courtesy inspection which showed I needed all this other maintenance done. I got the hell out of there!

Dr. Sampson gets 5 stars, but the opticians are awful. I tried to get progressive lenses here and after a few tries with obviously flawed lenses they said there was nothing else they could do and wouldn't refund my money. Take your prescription with you and get it filled elsewhere.
