Hi, its me....



Not sure I qualify as a geek, but I have been around IT for a long time. I started and ran commercial dev shop, managed projects, consulted, yada yada. Very interested in communications, digital and analog.



I am an occasional programmer, in lots of languages under Windows, Linux and the Arduino ecology.



I have a couple of projects using Arduino, accelerometers etc, audio, radio and Teensy (a very capable ARM microcontroller integrated into the Arduino toolchain). While no expert, I'm happy to help others where I can.



Did I mention the ocean? Mad for it. How do I make everything waterproof (forever)? Harvest energy? How to communicate via satellite?

Welcome aboard

Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

Welcome geek. You got yourself pretty impressive resume, and you are mad about ocean and satellite, but you are not sure are you a geek or not?!


Sounds like you are talented and intelligent. You like to take a look in every boxes don't you?


Keep up the good work Spicedreams.
