I bought one of these a couple of weeks ago for ten bucks at the local Urban Outfitters. It was the last one they had, squirreled away on the clearance shelf.

Yesterday, I made my first donuts. They turned out better than I had expected! It really was pretty easy to whip up a couple dozen mini-donuts.

Anyone use a pen tablet? I am looking at buying one in order to make some simple, hand-drawn diagrams for my Extra Class amateur radio license study guide.

Wacom looks like the big player, but other companies make ones that are less expensive. Are they worth the extra bucks?

What does Salman Khan use for his Khan Academy lectures?

if you have tablet like iPad or Android, you can use tablet pen, just download appropriate software from Android Market or iTunes, it should be simple and all together cheaper than $10

Are you a professional that uses oscilloscopes? Want to blog about them? If so, I'd like to talk to you. I'm now the editor of a new website that will cover the latest developments in oscilloscopes, oscilloscope design, and oscilloscope applications.

Work
Occupation
Freelance writer and website developer
Skills
WordPress, PHP, Javascript, writing, blogging, teaching/training, electronics, amateur radio
Employment
  • Independent writer and website developer
    1995 - present
    As a writer, I specialize in writing for high-tech companies. I've written feature articles, blog posts, press releases, app notes. If you need it written, I can write it. I've also self-published five books on amateur radio, that are doing quite nicely on Amazon. As a Web developer, I specialize in WordPress and database-driven websites using PHP and MySQL. For example, I recently developed the backend for a mobile application that that is basically an "electronic beer list." It allows the tavern owner to keep track of the beers they are offering, and allows the customers to keep track of the different beers that they've purchased.

Introduction

In no particular order, I am:

  • happily living in Ann Arbor, MI, USA.
  • a freelance writer specializing in writing about electronics and software technology.
  • a freelance website developer specializing in WordPress and other database-driven websites using the PHP programming language and the MySQL database.
  • a ham radio operator, callsign KB6NU. Read my ham radio blog, which happens to be the top-rated ham radio blog, according to Google.
  • author of the No-Nonsense Amateur Radio License Study Guides.
  • a member of the Ann Arbor (MI, USA) Rotary Club.
  • a bowler. I bowl on one of our Rotary Club’s bowling teams. I ended the year with a 183 average and won the all-events title at the 2011 Slovak Catholic Sokol International Bowling Tournament.
  • a sausage maker.
Bragging rights
Have helped hundreds of people, if not thousands by now, get their ham radio licenses and have fun with amateur radio. I do this by authoring the No-Nonsense license study guides (www.kb6nu.com/tech-manual), teaching ham radio classes, and mentoring new hams,.
