Technology and Research

Mission Statement

This site is dedicated to sharing my research and knowledge about technology and whatever else I've been into for some time.

Robert Heinlein has pretty-much explained my credo in the two below quotes:

"There is an old song which asserts 'the best things in life are free.' Not true! Utterly false! This was the tragic fallacy which brought on the decadence and collapse of the democracies of the twentieth century; those noble experiments failed because the people had been led to believe that they could simply vote for whatever they wanted … and get it, without toil, without sweat, without tears." - Robert A. Heinlein, Starship Troopers

"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects." - Robert A. Heinlein

2022-07-05 I am losing sight rapidly (legally blind now) and no longer able drive. a vehicle I do not know how much longer I will be able to edit the wiki I am already using all the visually-impaired features that Linux has to offer and adding even the smallest updates is laborious and error-prone. Sp much has changed, so quickly.

So I have been getting involved in creating a community radio station (FM Stereo) and created something to resolve a problem with this antenna for others who may use the same one. See FM_Transmitter_Antenna where you can download the design and print it yourself.

2022-03-09 The wiki hosting provider has done bad things to my quota settings and somehow set my quota to 300MB when I am already using over 500MB so I may not be adding anything new to the site for awhile until I can straighten this out. I have over 5GB in space supposedly.
