[Dream] Get a Boat

“There’s nothing––absolutely nothing––half so much worth doing as messing about in boats.” ― Kenneth Grahame, The Wind In The Willows

I’ve been around boats of one size or another most of my life. It’s well beyond time I got one and started relaxing on the water.

[Dream] Build and Program an Arduino Project [Living It]

“ARDUINO IS AN OPEN-SOURCE ELECTRONICS PROTOTYPING PLATFORM BASED ON FLEXIBLE, EASY-TO-USE HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE. IT’S INTENDED FOR ARTISTS, DESIGNERS, HOBBYISTS AND ANYONE INTERESTED IN CREATING INTERACTIVE OBJECTS OR ENVIRONMENTS.”

There’s a ton of cool and useful things you can do with an Arduino. People have made robots, climate controls and even a Rosary to automate your prayers. Potential projects for me include a Time Lapse Dolly, maybe as a windlass control on a boat or you know, actually, I don’t even know what all an Arduino can do. 
Learn, Learn, Learn.

Update #1

I finally bought an Arduino board and some breadboard goodies. I’m putting together a little work area and digging out all my little electronic doodads that I’ve collected thru the years. I have a trainer from when I went to PTI for Electronics. It has a power supply and breadboard, so that’ll be key in my experimentation.
