A New Old Hobby

Filed under: Arduino,Electronics — Cranky Sysadmin @ 8:48 am

When I was a kid, my dad would bring home various bits of electronics hardware he acquired from his job as a field engineer. I used to spend a lot of time desoldering components and building simple projects. When I joined the Marine Corps, I repaired RADAR, so I still got to play with a lot of hardware. I also got to learn how to use oscilloscopes, spectrum analyzers, and logic analyzers and other nifty pieces of test equipment. Since then, I’ve been losing touch with my hardware side as I became a sysadmin and a bit of a programmer.
An expensive hobby

Coming Upgrade to this server

Soon, I will be upgrading this server. Maybe just the OS, or maybe the hardware and OS. The data from this blog may or may not make the transition.
