Random Thoughts from the Past 9 Months

It has been a busy start to the new year with my full time role and family winter activities. A few bits that have been keeping me busy:

  • Travel - UK and Paris for work and pleasure.
  • Dusting off my snowboard and my wife and I teaching our family to ski.
  • VR golf and mini putt putt.
  • Restoring DMG-01 Original Gameboy’s. Including building a “retro bright” lightbox to re-whitening yellowing plastic and some minor soldering work.
  • Scanning local digital radio channels with my Bluetail Technologies MicroP25RX. Sadly this kit is no longer being produced but it is one great little device with a physical screen (via Wio Terminal) and App based scanning. The sole owner of the company and engineer is possibly working on a updated model once chip supply chain issues ease.
  • Hacking VR overlays for my favorite iRacing 3rd party app RaceLabApp.
  • Making my first batch of Sauerkraut in a Fermentation Pot.
  • Building a sim accessory VoCore 5” Dash with a 3D Printed Case and Screen
  • Investigating CanBus Data Collection via a ESP32, Bluetooth and RaceChrono. Example project here and here.
  • Home Air Quality monitoring via Airgradient.
  • Getting back in shape with a Peloton and Garmin Forerunner 955 (I love this watch!).
  • Nerding out on Sim racing data with Garage61.
  • Enjoying French Pressed Coffee.
  • Enjoying: The Last of Us, Clarkson’s Farm (Season 2), White Lotus, and others.
  • Gearing up for a great season of IMSA and Indycar racing (and maybe a little track time myself this year).
