 General: Just a little change...
You may notice some slight differences here and there with the site. I decided to change things up slightly, to display a running feed of the last ten articles posted, and to not display "all articles" any longer - it was just making the site a mess. It's still possible to get to all articles, new and old (and there's no more archive, it was redundant). I updated the RSS feed to act the same way. I'm hoping this might improve my page rank a bit, but mostly I got tired of seeing only one article every time I posted a new one; my old aging system didn't make any sense. Enjoy!
 General: HOWTO: Spotting the Low-Level Techie
I frequently visit and read an atheist and science-oriented blog called Pharyngula. Not too long back, Pharyngula moved from ScienceBlogs to its new host at Freethought Blogs. Earlier this week, there was a server upgrade, and things got wonky; comments went missing, comments were assigned to the wrong posting, etc. PZ is understandably upset and exasperated. On that blog posting, one of the commenters, ColonelZen, posed a question that I thought I would try to answer, one that I have been asked in the past. My answer may not be the greatest, and it might act as a chainsaw where a scalpel is needed - but sometimes, drastic surgery is the only real option to getting the answers needed...

...writing style {that} is academic and happy most of the time...

I'm not sure it is a totally fair assessment (new window) - I'm not that old, dammit! {...grumble...}

 General: It Can Be Done
I found this neat little website which opens with the line "Do not believe the naysayers who say it cannot be done". Apparently it is centered around an individual who goes by the handle of "rog8811"...

 General: Welcome, Nuts and Volts Readers!
Welcome to my website. Whether you arrived here via the link in the Nuts and Volts September 2008 issue, where it was announced that I won (new window) Vern Graner's Personal Robotics $100 Workbench Design Challenge (new window), or in another manner, I want to thank you for visiting.
