They are lucky that stuffed derma was not served, or fricassee.  The apple kugel was not what my family does.  We either do a salt and pepper, my preference, or a sweet with raisins.  If they had my moms rugelach, they would not eat that crap they served.

Almost worth spending evening  winding coil to play with this.
[Kalle] tipped us about a quick project he made over a couple of evenings: an inductor saturation current tester. All the components used for it were salvaged from a beefy telecom power supply, whi...

Built the +Evil Mad Scientist  741 kit.  Used the classic comparator from the latest Forrest Mims Engineer's Mini Notebook Timer, Op Amp & Optoelectronic Circuits and projects.

Giving away one of the kits at this months Foothills Amateur Radio Society meeting, K6YA.org.  Home Brew night.  Figured I'd build and being the kit with a working circuit.

What he said
 
Ignorance looks good on NOBODY!
Hold no doubt, the 2nd amendment was put in place for a damn good reason & MUST stay intact.
Learn the lessons history teaches to us all from tyrants who have risen to power & set forth to crush the citizens for ultimate control in their shady, self-serving, corrupt & evil intent.
Firearms are NOT the problem.
Evil people with evil intent ARE the problem & disarming decent, law-abiding citizens creates further people to be victimized by criminals.
It resolves NOTHING!.
Criminals DO NOT give a damn about the laws & WILL find a means to their end one way or another.

Story
Tagline
Ham Radio Guy.
Introduction
Software Engineer by profession.  Serial hobbiest by practice.

Over the years I've played with drawing, playing guitar, playing ukulele, fly fishing, fly tying, shell collecting, stamp collecting and beer making. Was good at some.  Lousy at others.  Learned from all.

I have a pretty good collection of morse code keys, slide rules and USA made schrade old timer knives.

I collect Atwood.  He is an amazing tool smith and a very good guy that appreciates his followers.

I am getting into EDC.  Are you an EDC minimalist, or a kitchen sink person?

I am currently an active Amateur Radio operator. Callsign NE6RD.

I organized a booth at the  Bay area Maker Faire to get people interested in ham radio.  2012 was be the fourth year. Hoping for an idea that will really draw people in.


Bragging rights
Call sign NE6RD. My Amber beer was compared to the Tied House beer. Published author, contributed 2 chapters to http://hamradioprojects.com/
