Woah... how time flies! I haven't myself much.

Got an HP 7440 pen plotter from the 80's working. I wrote software for it to get nifty stringy looking images out of it. I used the standard plotter cable wiring (PDF).

Managed to get a Star NX-1000C Rainbow Color dot matrix printer from the 80's working. I scanned the entire manual in and uploaded it to the Internet Archive. I also spoke at PyOhio 2018 about it. I managed to get a high resolution color photo mode that it probably couldn't do back when it came out, and yeesh is it slow :P

The printer was featured in a pretty great comedy video:

From April, here is a mixed infrared and visible light timelapse video of the front yard.


Flying occasionally, and I continue hacking on things. :D I took some time to focus on myself and take care of various things. Maybe more to come in 2016 okay 2017 maybe 2018!


Been busy flying occasionally, and hacking on things.

Created a plugin for Twine called Full Screen YouTube that allows you to put videos in the background of your interactive story passages. You can view a sample story I put together about myself over at the Tilde Club.

On September 29th, I completed my practical exam and received my Sport Pilot License with the New Flyers Association in the Flight Design CTLS. Just over a year of weekend lessons and practice! Here is a video I made of a complete flight from just after pre-flight checks to just after landing:

The camera used is the Mobius Actioncam.

I completed a solo cross country flight which you can play back in N566FD, on June 14th.

I applied for, and received, a new Amateur Radio callsign: W8KV .. a vanity callsign which was previously owned by a WWII veteran who affected a lot of people in positive ways.

My first completely solo trip happened on Memorial Day and you can view a visualization of that flight, while my first ever solo happened in March in N178CT, and a visualization of that flight is also available.

I Created a web application for controlling the RTL-SDR dongles to receive miscellaneous radio signals, and presented this at PyOhio on June 26-27th.

Here's an animated screenshot:

And here is a video of the talk at PyOhio, discussing using a bare minimum of C code with Python:


Been learning a new job, and messing with Amateur Radio, I also supported the Hack RF Project.

Check out polybius ... a python based feed reader that uses Git for storage. "It works for me!"

I've updated my GitHub hosted page with a three.js that visualizes some ADS-B data I recorded over the air. Here is the script that I wrote to collect this data from the dump1090 software.

I've started flying with the New Flyers Association out of Don Scott Field.


I gave a talk at PyOhio 2012 which was wonderfully recorded and placed on YouTube about using Python to do video with sequences of images.
