My web server hosting provider is going away, so I have to migrate my data from the old machine to this new one. In the process, I lost most of my WordPress install ( it’s two years old! ).

Last month, I bought a new house in Austin. Thus begins a new adventure! It’s on 1.3 acres of land, with a huge pool, near a creek.
Plus, as a bonus, it’s RIGHT on the fiber internet corridor where Google Fiber will be rolled out.
Since the last post I’ve:

* Upgraded the ArduPilot board to use an ARM processor
There’s a lot going on! Maybe I should, you know, blog about it or something.
I made some awesome gnocci the other day (Paprika/Oregano).
Last night five people joined the hackerspace.
I have over 3500 followers in Google+.

This is an example of a homopolar generator. High current! It’s why flywheel homopolar generators are used to store energy from the Grid:
You can, by changing resistance, build a primitive “speed control” for a faraday motor:
