There is so much amazingly cool "stuff" to see and do that I'm amazed I find the time to get any real work done. In my blog I will waffle on about the books I'm reading, the projects I'm building, and the weird and wonderful websites I blunder across. Please Email Me if you see anything you think will "tickle my fancy."

I had a jolly happy time at the EE Live! 2014 conference and exhibition a few weeks ago. One thing I noticed as I meandered my way around the exhibition floor was the fact that there were flashing LED displays all over the place. In particular, EETimes Community Editor Caleb Craft had created a ve......

Hurray! I have finally finished creating my infinity mirror. It's taken a while because I'm easily distracted, but it's done now. (See also Part 1 and Part 2 of this miniseries.) Before we plunge into the fray, please note that that there's a video at the end of this blog showing......

A couple of months back, I found out how Mentor's Valor links ERP/MRP with the shop floor. It facilitates a lean new product introduction (NPI) flow.

Well, this may have nothing to do with electronics, but I'm about to put a smile on your face and make you a happier person, and that's got to count for something. I've mentioned my friend Arthur Smith in previous blogs. Arthur is one of the world's foremost authorities on cosmic......

I was lying in bed last night thinking about my recent blog, Why lunchtime is an illusion. In particular, I was thinking of the dynamic, ever-changing displays on the Poodwaddle.com website showing births and deaths and the total population of the planet (7,222,691,563 when I checked just a moment......
