LATEST NEWS!
My website hosting company has recently upgraded their systems and thrown their customers a nice big monkey wrench! It seems that their new servers do NOT like file names with ANY punctuation or non-alphanumeric characters in the file names. If it encounters sucha filename, the server freezes and then fails to deliver any kind of error message. I have MANY files with ][ or ! in their names which were freezing whenever called up. I have renamed all the files with ][s in them to use two capital i's, ii, instead. I haven't been able to find and redo all the links though. I have redone many but not all SO if you find that a QRpme file called up from a link has frozen your screen:
1.) Mouse up to the search results box.
2.) Copy over the URL/filename in the box.
3.) Change the ][ brackets to capital II (double capital i)
4.) Press ENTER
5.) The desired file should then open.
I am working on a COMPLETE solution and hope to have that in place before the end of this week.

There are still FIVE open seats in the FDIM Buildathon.... check the link up in the left corner for more details.


A NEW mint tin kit for scouts is now available. I call it the Two Scouts Night Sender Key. The kit design is a culmination of many years of developing a simple kit that ANY scout with beginners soldering skills can put together. The board is designed using Limerick Construction where the interconnects are all made using traces on the circuit board. Each part is soldered to its corresponding LARGE pads and the entire project fits nicely into the ubiquitous mint tin which, of course, fits nicely into a typical pocket. A nice project to build for the electronics merit badge. The two scouts on the label are me and my dad in 1965 all dressed up to march in the Cape Elizabeth, Maine Memorial day parade.
