Where do you get the time from? I have a friend, when asked the same question once, who said, "It is simply the choices we make every day."
I am either not making enough choices or those that I am making are simply wrong.
I stumbled across the Cat5 cable trick many years ago. Great stuff, and solders well too.
An electronics element seems to be gathering speed on the Atomic Zombie forum.

I always answer that one the same way...
  1. Don't watch TV.
  2. Only have productive hobbies.
It's amazing what can be done the same amount of time it takes to sit slack-jawed suffering through an episode of Survivor!

I am going to add a lot more tech as soon as I have the time.
Everything on my old LucidScience.com dumping ground and a bunch of new projects I never posted anywhere.
Will probably keep then in my "Hacks" section.

Yes, I remember talking to the builder way back when it first came out. I was very impressed by the data collecting he was doing. At the time, I think the bike had another name along the lines of Microship or something like that. He jammed a lot of big gear on that bike for sure!

WinneBiko I and WinneBiko II, followed by BEHEMOTH, then came Microship (was also the name of one of his websites), and then ...
Have got to give him credit for the technology and the way he used it, and the intestinal fortitude to pedal the thing around the countryside. Must have been one hell of a task at times.
I read/viewed all I could find on the matter and it gave me a few ideas, but I don't have the resources that he did.
