Seeing the Back Basement

Bob’s been working in the basement, getting a lot of our electrical updated. We’ve had lights installed in the far West corner of the basement for some time, but they’ve just been hanging out, without power.

James Mason Impersonations

The odd thing for me: I didn’t really know who Mason was. But on hearing the impressions and the sound of his voice, immediately recognized it at someone who had been in films.

Uno > Nano

In trying to imagine moving my project into a physical container (box), the Arduino Uno itself is a bit bulky. I’ve been trying to figure out how to shrink the footprint down more, and ultimately decided to switch things over to an Arduino Nano (technically a Nano Every).

Button and Display Test

I haven’t affixed the lid yet to the top of the box, and wanted to see how things fared in the spaces I made. So I decided to hook up the display and buttons.

He’s Dead, Jim

I love fun Star Trek videos, particularly the ones where repetition plays a key role. Here’s a supercut of every time McCoy reports that someone’s dead.

Celebrating My Mom’s Birthday: St. Elmo’s

I wasn’t quite expecting the maze-like interior, but we got taken downstairs and to some far back room. Because there were eight of us, we got seated in a room off the main area… and though some other folks sat at the nearby tables, it felt like we had the whole place to ourselves.
