Warrior Drank

Mmmmm... Warrior-y

Today in Things I Never Thought Would Be On My Website: A recipe for the protein shake I imbibe before running the Warrior Dash.  Batch will serve two easily.

I don't have that fedora anymore. Like many things, the internet ruined it.

Ah yes, time for another Oldie-But-Goodie project.  And pretty much self-explanatory!  Back in 2013, my wife asked me for a shoe rack, and I thought adding a few hat stands would be a nice touch.

Would also accept: "So BASIC, it was based on Fortran II."

This part is so basic, it’s a 14 on the pH scale, so we’re going to spend very little time on it…

Meshmixer: Mashup Machine

It mixes all the meshes.

Who doesn’t love a good mashup?  Take two (or more) things you like, smush them together, and you may end with one EPIC thing of your own design!

My immediate thought: I could do that!

"SpaceNavigator" is such a B.A. name.

Everyone working in 3D modeling or design should have a mouse fashioned to operate within all of those dimensions.

I was unaware of this until a seasoned veteran of engineering showed me the light.

Drachenberg USB Drive

The Dragon Mountain Crest is a lot like Frank's Red Hot in that "I put that $h!t on everything!"

Emergency Charger

Made this for my wife too. She claims it's too big (it's not).

Between the learning experience of the Drachenbox One, and the DrachenberryPi configurations, I had a few parts left over, which was irritating.  It pains me to have useful components like LiPo batteries and charging circuits sitting idly in storage until another project needing them comes along.  It occurred to me later than I’d like to admit that a LiPo battery and charging circuit makes for a great project in and of itself.
