I have not paid attention to this site in a long time. I have a different job now that is not entirely IT/Engineering based anymore but more of a mix of financials and accounting with a smattering of database and platform operation.
After a few months of not working on anything physical I have found again an interest in tinkering with hardware, electronics, and other crafty fun as I do not spend 10 hours a day six days a week on it at work. I am going to throw up some lab projects, home DIY, and other goodies just for fun and to share ideas with other electro-mechanical mad scientists.
Disclaimer: Much of what I talk about should only be done by qualified electrical, electronic, mechanical, and engineering professionals. Modification to electrical systems both DC and AC is extremely hazardous and can result in fire and electrocution. Almost anything I do will void an active warranty and is against the manufacturers recommendations of operation. Also please check with your local building, engineering, and electical codes to make sure any project is within the bounds of code and law. Now that being said… have fun and be safe!
So here we go !!!!
