Hello World!

    Sorry, couldn't resist :-)

    I have become a student again for career 2.0. I am having some difficulty so I was referred to seek out help on the forums. I hope that in time I will be able to contribute as much if not more than what I receive.

    Hope to see you around!

    Welcome to PF! What are you studying?

    Right now, my palms. I am stuck LOL

    I am taking prerequisites with hopes of entering into a computer science program. I have always been interested in programming and have done some small programs in the past. In the last few years I have been really interested in embedded systems and even made a project with a pic10 coded in ASM that gets daily use in a somewhat industrial setting. I really like to solve problems and attempt to think deeply. I need more grey matter today though...

    It seems like it!

    Been there and done that! Hopefully someone can help me get it sorted.

    LOL, no. I have butchered a few in my day. It's been an avatar that I've used for a bit now. I used to do a lot of woodworking, but not as much in the last few years. Other interests, work, family obligations, etc. Its a time consuming passion though! Everything went off the tracks a few years back when I married electronics and woodworking.... that has led me back to school for a second career or at least a shot at one.

    Ah ha.

    Well, if you like wood, you might enjoy my wood web site:

    A lathe man -the most intoxicating and addicting of the woodworking devices ;-) I can say I never made it that far. If I did, I probably would have never made it here LOL. Perhaps when I retire ;-)

    Thanks for the link! You definitely have an interesting assortment. I like the color variations on some of the turnings. Despite it being minimum wage or less, you have quite the pedigree of sold projects, kudos!!!

    Actually, I don't think about the bowls that much. I was pointing you to the wood site itself, but thanks. I get very mixed reviews on the bowls. My wife doesn't like them at all; she says they are "busy", which is true.

    Since you're getting into programming, perhaps you'd find this interesting:

    LOLOL - I completely missed the lower part of the page where you hid all the woodporn o0):biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:
    That quilted maple caught my eye.... reminded me that I wanted to veneer some and make drawer fronts for a tool cabinet..... ah, future projects....

    I skimmed part 1 - nicely done, BTW. I will look at part 2 in the near future. I have to continue on this classwork for now.
