So some group in the Ukraine is ordering Jews to register.  Claiming to be the government.  First cannot find and first level news organization covering this story.   Second no statements from the actual government making any statements.   This is wrong!

If the paper is actually real, I suspect it's propaganda via anti Russian groups to generate hysteria.

Working with electronics can be intimidating for people like me--I don't know a soldering iron from a glue gun, and I definitely don't know how to read a circuit diagram. Luckily, there's littleBits. littleBits are open source electronic modules that snap together like toys, making the learning process fun and easy for anyone. And behind littleBits is Ayah Bdeir. Ayah is an engineer, artist, and alumna of the MIT Media Lab who founded the company...

Yup.  The YUN serves 2 pages and one json stream.   One webpage is just wind and direction.  Another is all the data, plus a URL that serves all the data as a json stream.

Maker Faire Project.  Monday I'll get the small crossover ethernet cable, and RJ11 extension.

This is the project I copied to run the fan.  http://www.instructables.com/id/Use-Arduino-with-TIP120-transistor-to-control-moto/

Today I picked up the acrylic sheet to mount the project. I should have time to mount it tomorrow.  I think once the parts are in Monday, I'm done for the this year.

More Spectrum!!!!!
The FCC has unanimously voted to open up 100MHz of spectrum at the bottom end of the 5GHz band, redesignating them as open spectrum, under rules similar to those that created the original Wifi boom.

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.
