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."

My chum Javi in Spain sent me an email several days ago. "Have you heard about Voltera (VolteraInc.com)? It's a Canadian company that is going to offer desktop-size PCB printers for fast prototype development," the email said.   Well, of course, I immediately bounced over to V......

I'm really, really keen on laying my hands on a drone. Ideally, I'd like one of the "Big Boys" -- a hexacopter about 2-3 feet across carrying a meaty digital video camera and capable of flying for about 30 minutes with a couple of miles range control-wise, streaming video capabil......

Not typical of me, I was not wearing my happy face several days ago, nor did I perform a single happy dance. The reason for this sad state of affairs started when I arrived at my office at the crack of dawn and powered up the main tower computer that drives the three 28-inch monitors forming my de......

When I reached home from work several nights ago, I found my wife (Gina The Gorgeous) happily working on our Christmas decorations. As part of this extravaganza, Gina was activating some battery-powered garlands festooned with LEDs that she was planning on draping around our front door (well, if t......

Oh what horror! As you may know, I currently hang my hat in Huntsville, Alabama, home of the US Space and Rocket Center and NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center. I've been told that there are more rocket scientists per square foot in Huntsville than anywhere else in America, and that&#......

My wife, Gina The Gorgeous, loves animals. She has two stupid dogs and two stupid cats. How stupid are they? Well, allow me to show you this video of the dogs that I made a couple of years ago.     But I fear we are getting ahead of ourselves, so let's return to the tortuous tal......

My chum Rick Curl went to see me in my office about a week ago.

Have you ever tasted a really spicy dish that brought tears to your eyes? Well, I just watched an excruciating video on YouTube that makes my eyes water just thinking about it.   This all started when a reader wrote the following in reaction to my column: "I'm hoping to get some Ca......
