I feel like the Sesame Street funk would have been a better soundtrack than the Thus Spake Zarathustra funk. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZshZp-cxKg

How do you get those MBI devices? I can't find them on digikey or mouser. I like the idea of a $0.20 16 channel constant current driver chip. I have used the TLC5921. Similar, but like $1+

LVK B24 departure.

Not exactly a STOL machine.

B17 startup and taxi

Cole and I flew into LVK this afternoon and happened into this totally unexpectedly (hence not having a camera). We were standing at the self serve pumps. The B17 wingtip came within 10 feet of us.

Yes, we were especially lucky to be on the ramp!

Because I'm such a misanthrope, I enjoy going to Tilden in the rain, when few others are there. Today was particularly cool, following a pretty intense rain storm.

We didn't take pictures/video of the boardwalk.  I thought it would be fun to take the kids over the boardwalk, because it's usually dry underneath, and I knew it wouldn't be on Sunday.  However, we got only about 50 yards down the boardwalk before it was completely submerged.  So, that ended that.  we would have been wading up to our shins ON the boardwalk.  It was really incredible.  I am sorry that Cole was not up for the rest of the walk to the pond, but glad I got to see the video of the sluice.  David reports that T was asking for "more dam! more dam!"  Apparently, she was impressed!

This was cool. Remind me what it measures? Does it matter when a dot from one row hops over to the next row?

I think it's good enough for sharing on social media.

Hey, just wanted to thank you for this vid. It gave me the confidence to try to repair my non-draining Frigidaire rather than waiting for the repair company. When you showed the drain motor and how simple it was to disassemble and inspect, I knew I could do this repair myself. It turned out that it was not broken, but that there was a blockage near drain vent. Thanks again!

Kill-a-Watt precision

Doesn't look great for voltage.

Yeah, it's not that bad, I guess. I didn't take a power measurement photo. Those were about 4% off. I guess I would have expected better, particularly from the voltage, which is just going through a divider and into a DAC. The current sense is through the voltage drop across a shunt wire. The shunt in the older unit (more accurate) had been shaved -- so I'm assuming someone actually took the time to calibrate. The shunt in the new unit had no obvious evidence of calibration.

I guess they've been cost-reducing!
