Another year, another post…

I got an email the other day… “Your website never updates” it said, and the person asked if I would give him the domain name… you know .. for charity.

Domain names are MUCH more than just for websites. I have my email ( for 20 years now ) on this domain. I do my finances on it and run multiple services on my server based on the igotu.com/.net domains. I have voicemail and phone services…

So, no… you can’t have my domain name. It’s part of my identity now.

Cleaning (Digital) House

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! ).

So, this is a backup of the old database.   I’ll see if I can restore the posts afterwards.

 

New House!

 

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.

Awesomesocks.

 

Blog Theme / Roll update

 

Since the last post I’ve:

* Bought a house
* Increased the size of the hackerspace to 8000 square feet
* Created a company to make ARM motherboards
* 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.

Gnocchi and fun stuff…

IMG_1156I made some awesome gnocci the other day (Paprika/Oregano).
Last night five people joined the hackerspace.
I have over 3500 followers in Google+.

Amazing things are happening in my life.

Sometimes, and more than just occassionally:

Life. Is. Good.

Wanderlust…

Today, I want to be everywhere, anywhere but right here. Wanderlust! Well at least I know next week I’ll be in Las Vegas.

Since we’re on a homopolar motor kick…

Okay, it’s Monday and I *DO* feel better. This evening I’ll be having fun at Microcontroller Monday at the hackerspace, but for now, I’m still on a homopolar (faraday) motor kick.

This is an example of a homopolar generator. High current! It’s why flywheel homopolar generators are used to store energy from the Grid:
