I like living in a city where people can say to themselves: “shall I continute to trundle along in fairly light commuting traffic, or shall I pull to the side of the road and watch the dolphins in the harbour?” There are dolphins there, honest.

(For those of you not in Wellington, NZ, it’s a tad windy here. So we’re building three wind farms, two big, one small, within ten miles of the city. One is close to my in-laws’ farm. I don’t know of any other city that’s building so many, so close. Then again, there’s no other cities …

Day off for no good reason! Woohoo! “Dan Carter, of Prime Minister’s Security Detail, breakfasted on the fish he’d killed with the limo at dawn, cooked on the engine cover, flavoured with blackberries he’d plucked from the side of the road at 140ks, and garnished with what his partner said were saffron threads, but Dan …

New Horizons is about the size of a grand piano and it’s on its way to Pluto. That’s pretty awesome. It set off in 2006 and it’ll get there in 2015. That’s nine years of just cruising along in deep, empty space. Right now, and for pretty much all of it’s travelling time, it’s doing …

This pic is job number 38 of version 3.4.5 of the Mitochondrion. That square chip is the dinky little computer that runs everything. It connects to the outside world through all those pins. Those pins are at 0.8 mm spacing, 0.4 mm between them and yes, this is the hardest thing I’ve ever soldered. It …

This blog has recently discussed shed-built electronics, land speed record cars, trampolines, taxes, economic growth theories, osciloscopes, digging trenches, and logic tables.
