The circuit board I just finished designing turned out looking like an anxious Borg.

Back in October of 2012, my wife and I bought an IKEA SY sewing machine with the idea of using it to create appliance covers and wing bags for my R/C sailplanes. Before we got around to using it life happened and it got put away. Fast forward to this last weekend. The laundry bag we use to carry laundry from the garage to the bedroom ripped, and my wife proclaimed that we were going to sew up a new laundry bag that weekend. We bought some nice cloth, measured the old bag and sewed up a new one. The machine performed excellently (except for once when the thread somehow got out of the take-up lever) even going through 6 layers of cotton twill without breaking a sweat.
The second project was a cover for our blender - I completed that last night and it came out pretty good.
I've got a bunch more covers to make, and I'm really happy with my little $70 sewing machine.

Hey, +Ron Kuris, this might be relevant to your interests. I just got this working last night myself.

Remember, kids - defined behavior, no matter how bad, is nowhere near as scary as undefined behavior.

Now that I have two devices in my home that support 802.11ac, I think it's time to upgrade my wireless router.

My current setup uses a Buffalo WZR-HP-G300NH running OpenWRT with wireless disabled as a wired router, and a first-generation Apple Time Capsule as the wireless access point. This has worked great - I think I've only needed to reboot the Time Capsule once in 6 years (disregarding the time the power supply failed and I needed to hack a new power supply into it).

Given that I use a wired router, I don't really care much about the routing aspects of whatever router I buy - although it would be nice to have good routing in case I decide to switch in the future, I'm most interested in wireless performance and reliability.

Unfortunately, the reviews on consumer AC routers do not fill me with confidence that they'll "just keep working" once I've set them up. Tri-band would be nice but not a deal-breaker. But most important is reliability.
