  • "I'm a car guy and it was a dream of mine."
    So, how do young'uns (~new college grads) afford supercars?As one involved in the local car scene, I've seen some number of folks around the same age as I who have pretty nice cars.

  • Three-Phase Color
    I was doing a bit more work on my DirectX-based .raw image viewer when I came across a nice mathematical overlap with  three-phase motor control theory.

  • Electric Razor: Construction
    So I kind of never made a post on the machining and construction of the rest of the scooter (other than the motor), even though it came (chronologically) before the motor testing. Instead of making a bunch of separate posts, I am just going to dump it all here in one post. The scooter body […]...

  • I'm a Beardy-Weirdy?

For some reason, I always associated analog people with old engineers probably because I once saw a picture of Bob Pease and assumed all analog-ers looked like this."My fa...
