Below I have written a short comment about why I am interested in this exchange going to beta. If you feel the same, then commit to participate.

 I myself have always been interested in taking things apart and figuring out what makes them tick. This usually meant breaking my aunts computer, tearing up working radios, and generally causing my parents to question buying me anything nice. Now that I am older, I want to share my experiences to help others harness the untapped "features" of their devices, and this site gives me that opportunity.

In what might be the most epic move ever, Georgia Tech Athletics is giving away 5 authentic Stormtrooper helmets away to students at this Saturday's Whiteout game vs. Miami. -- http://c.gatech.edu/GTWhiteOut14  #GoJackets #GTWhiteOut

+Todd Bailey thanks. Found out that box design can be pretty difficult if you make it difficult.

AVR microcontrollers can do pretty much anything nowadays. Blinking LEDs, handling sensor inputs, engine control modules, and now, thanks to [Dan], a small single chip BASIC computer with only ten parts (and four of them are capacitors). [Dan]‘s homebrew…

Shapeoko 2 build

To say the least this has been a really fun project. Planning on changing out the stock spindle for a DW660 in the future. Already burned up one bit and am learning tons about CNC fabrication.

Had the worst experience today trying to buy some things from here. Guy who I have never dealt with wouldn't give me a per pound price for part that I wanted. First time I had ever hear of this "It is what I say it is" pricing policy. I like being able to save a few bucks on stuff that is basically trash, but this place wanted to charge a premium just because I keep coming back. Don't expect friendly service, and don't expect consistency.
