  • Tesla and Elon Musk

    I’m a big fan of Tesla and Elon Musk.

    In 2004-ish I  talked  to a friend of mine about putting solar panels on my house, I looked into designing solar panels that could be shingles on the roof and designed a battery to store energy especially for emergency lighting and the laundry room and maybe also as a UPS for computer systems. My friend told me all of that was impractical and Elon Musk now sells all those things.

    I need better friends.

  • Leatherman Micra

    I’ve lost my Leatherman Micra twice.

    Naturally now, as of about July 1, 2017, right after I put up this post, I have lost it a 3rd time. I have not found it like before. I just had the engraving done a few months ago and now it is mysteriously lost and we’ve searched the last know location. Alas. I think a new one is only $20 but I’d like it back if you find it.

    My wife got it for me when I graduated. I thought it was the “Producer’s Version” of the Leatherman the Grips used on Charlie Sexton and the Archangel’s Video for MTV “Livin In A Dream” which was the first thing I worked on when I got to UT.

    If I’ve lost it again and you’ve found it, call me or contact me via the site if you found my Leatherman Micra!
