Are you a recruiter?

If so, I am currently looking for new opportunities with a start date no earlier than September 1st, 2022.

However, I'm happy to chat and get to know you if you're into that sort of thing.


  1. Telegraf scripts and configs for monitoring Raspberry Pi internals

    Shell 16 2

  2. Kicad files for a Keithley 169 display replacement board along with some historical information about this classic 1970's multimeter

  3. OpenSCAD model and details for a front panel binding posts modification for the classic 1990's era HP 6060B/6063B DC electronic load

    OpenSCAD 2

  4. A collection of demos and experiements built with CircuitPython

    Python 1

  5. A CircuitPython driver for the HX711 load cell amplifer and ADC

    Python 2

  6. 1
    # Mikrotik BTest on the QNAP TS-431KX NAS
    This is a simple gist with details on how to run a simple btest client on a [QNAP TX-431KX]( NAS. This is likely to work on any QNAP NAS running QTS 5.x but I've only tested it on a TS-431KX.
    As a bonus, I dumped a bunch of text from some exploratory digging on the hardware/firmware. I do this kind of thing for fun. Go figure.
