- Dave has secured his new basement/garage space! The EEVbunker!
- Dave was once working (from home) on Christmas Eve to try and get stuff ready for CES
- Some of our favorite video bloggers:
- Dave recently completed the mud run in Sydney. He also did a teardown of the scope he took with him.
- Chris and Dave had both had to deal with extended life testing (Thermal/humidity testing). One possible solution is conformal coating.
- Australian alarm company Hess designed in MOVs for thunderstorms…but didn’t populate them for non-monsoon-colocated systems.
- Fixing scopes isn’t for the faint of heart. Sure, pros like Jim Williams and Kent Lundberg (former guest) fix them up for fun, but you could be signing up to jump down a rabbit hole.
- Dave recently fixed his BTTF time circuit
- The Orion launch/landing were a spectacular set of videos. Also NASA officially announced going to Mars!
- Aldrin’s book (and concept) about building our way to Mars vs the Mars direct (described in a book by Robert Zubrin)
- Apollo 8 was impressive to Dave because it was not only a manned mission…they also decided to “go for it” and get around the moon.
- Dave lamented Maxim’s delivery. There was an interesting post from a Maxim insider about the priorities at the company (that match what we expected).
