When I teach kid about making a circuit I start with:

"How many batteries does it take to blow up a light bulb."

This is an experiment about limits and failure.  This goal is to fail!!!

I get tons of cheap little lights from the Christmas tree lights after the season.

RIP BB KING
Mr. King, who grew up in the Jim Crow South, took the sorrows and joys of the blues around the world.

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/
