Reading about General Topology if that counts?

I guess I have a personal project/goal to start reading Algebraic Topology sometime this year.

I really liked the very little of group theory I learned.

The class would have been more fun if the students weren't so slow.

well since i have so much time now, im designing a multi frequency side scan imaging sonar. gotta run down to radioshack and grab a few max232a ic's for my 8051 microcontrollers.. id also like to use sx from parallax instead, but for something more advanced perhaps. maybe if i throw in a magnetometer in that side scan sonar and make it into an RF-controlled ROV.. but thats gonna eat a lot of batteries, we'll see.

The only ones I have are home-type things...redoing every room in the house, etc...Winter time means no garden work. The only other thing is trying to expand my small slide rule collection.

I wish I could post the really fun stuff I do at work.

Right now I'm programming a classroom organizer for my French teacher. Aside from that, lots of small or long-term things.

Restoring a kit car, learning first aid, and helping a school out build an electric racing car. That's about it at the moment.

Im trying to change the way my teacher teaches, his physics course in my highschool
The principles are so outdated, i mean it's good for an overall perespective, and understanding of physics. But there are so many new ideas and stuff, i think it just needs to be refreshed..

Ditto, more or less. We just put two new doors on the house. I am re-doing a room above the garage, and we will start planning for an upgrade on the stairway in the house.

Gardening is more or less suspended until May, although we may start some seeds soon.

And like Fred, I wish I could post the really fun and cool stuff we do at work, but its all proprietary and confidential.

I did spend yesterday in LA talking with a big firm about a strategic alliance that will help us grow our company. Looks like I'm on the management track in my company. :eek: :uhh:
