I heard you like gears I heard you like gears

Y’know, just your average Thursday morning when you work with the most amazing people on the most crazy things. Like a 27000-year astronomical clock and orrery up through Saturn, including major moons on each planet.

Software testing, part II Software testing, part II

I gave my soldering kit away years ago. Now I wish I had it.

Well, poop. Well, poop.

Took my DJI Spark out for another flight today, and the controller apparently disconnected. It wandered a bit, I tried bringing it back, to no avail. It went full-throttle (even though it was on “safe” mode, and should have stopped moving without direct input) sideways into a rock wall.

Just another day at COTA Just another day at COTA

Went out to Circuit of the Americas again last weekend for a multi-group track day and parking lot car show. Lots of crazy hardware on display, but didn’t really get that many interesting pictures of any of it for various reasons. Here are a few of my favorites from the morning:
