I am rebuilding the site from scratch. But I do have the images and text. Just not and an easily importable form...It is going to take time to fix. I am not going to re-add all of the news articles.

Most links will be broken until I can fix them. Some will not be fix - the old site is gone. No time to fix it.

Will it ever slow down?


Posted by: Keith

I haven't had much time to do many things lately.

Recently, we started moving my wife's art studio from the basement to an upstairs room. Needless to say, it has been quite the affair, and it still is not done. I am hoping that the worst is over. She found a map cabinet locally for an excellent price. However, I did not realize how heavy they are. Each drawer weighs about 50 pounds... there are 10 drawers per cabinet and there are two cabinets - over a thousand pounds of steel. 

The original plan was to stack them on a cart so they can be shifted around and the top one would get a work surface put on it. BUT... at over a thousand pounds, it still did not want to move with the big wheels I put on it. So, she sold one of them and I put even bigger wheels on the cart. Now it moves at least and I had to build a table to go around it. Been a busy weekend.

Lots of little stuff to finish up for her studio, but it is coming along.

I have been working on a portable game emulator, the Drachenberry Pi. I got the STL files from Thingiverse. So far so good. Been working on getting all the wiring done. I will do a project page for it once I get it done.

I also finally have all of the parts for a new quad... Just need some time to get to it.

ttfn,

Keith
