Upgrading the operating system is always taking a chance. It is a lot like jacking up the whole house, replacing the foundation under it and hoping everything works out. I upgraded my Ubuntu from version 12. something to 14.04 and everything was wonderful until I attempted to run

Hydroponic grown lettuce

This post is another general post about processes and projects. It is specifically about me making the choice this year to go with hydroponic growing of some vegetables. Originally I hoped to do aquaponics, but there are just too many difficulties to overcome in a short time and I wanted to

Processes and Projects.

Tonight’s post is a shift in direction. (Only momentary for those of you that want me to get back into the electronics… we will return.) I have been very busy the last month setting up a hydroponics garden. This is the first of a series talking about using the process of gardening to lead me

For the most part I have tried to keep this blog all original, but this weekend I am not going to be able to produce a video or write a detailed blog post. I am busy remodelling a bedroom in the house. However, while I am out of pocket I did run

Building Skills to work through problems – My E-mail Problem.

I decided to post this one as an audio podcast. The story is long and detailed to tell all of it, but it is still superficial in a way because I did not talk about the details of the programs. In other words this is mostly an overview. My main reason for sharing it is

A softer side of create-and-make… Teach your children.

Birthday Present

Tonight’s post is a more general one. We are approaching the “consumer holiday” season in America and many will be out buying toys for children. Consider an inexpensive construction project where you and your children can both participate. You will be teaching them a whole lot more than construction techniques. They will

Some videos of Real Cranes & one note about electrical meters.

This is just a short post to kind of clean up a few loose ends. Besides, it is about time we had a “light” post. (Tastes great… less filling… something like that.)

Electrical:

First, I want to clear up something that was not said about the voltmeter. Most newer style meters use an amplifier inside
