|I just got off the phone with my Dad. He shared a little about some of his dreams. I shared a little about some of mine. It was really nice. In fact, it made my day. |
Because of our personalities it is so easy for (both of) us to approach our phone conversations like we would a job. This was different.
I look forward to being able to have moments like this with my son some day.
Here's a picture of some dolphins he took from his sailboat this last week.

|Today while testing a function on the XBox Controller |
Mod website I accidentally created a new, and
possibly useful, mode.
It's a typical RT Rapid Fire, but it activates when
you pull the LT. The result is that you can still
fire your weapon as normal if you pull the RT, but if
you pull the LT it kicks in to Rapid-Fire. ...sort of
the best of both worlds.

Sheesh! - Part 3
|On Monday or Tuesday my circuit boards came in that |
I designed. This was a HUGE step! I have never done
anything like that. And I can't believe how easy
and cheap it was. I ended up paying about $3 per
board. With a larger order of 50 or so, I'll
probably end up paying about $.50 per board.
Also, all the parts came in on Wednesday. I
soldered everything on and wouldn't you know it, IT
Here's a shot of the circuit boards I designed and
ordered. (They are the same size as the rumble
motor so that we can take out a motor and have a
perfect spot for it.)
Here's a shot of the "finished" product.

Sheesh! - Part 2
|Today I finally got USB working on my Microchips. Now |
I need to create a prototype board that we can put in
a controller to test out.
