Power over other Pairs

Power over other Pairs (PooP – perhaps the second o is silent)

I’m working on a project I’ve entered into Parallax, Inc. Spinneret Design contest. The first thing I need to accomplish after ordering and receiving the parts from Parallax is to create power for the Spinneret. Hello World on my Spinneret will have to wait for me to create a power supply and delivery method.




Power over other Pairs

This post is like starting out so Wrong! It’s supposed to be about a project I’m working on delivering power over twisted pair Ethernet. I’m having a difficult time leaving the following in what is meant to be a technical post about a project that I’m seriously working on. So perhaps it was just to blow off some steam I Bingled poop and the first Youtube was a riot. A potty training cartoon spoken in what I assume is the Japanese language, then the same video with fake English sub titles. I was stuck in Youtube for awhile…

This mornings micro joust

It’s kind of interesting that as I grow closer to the problem I feel the answer slip away perhaps obscured by it’s enormity and/or my proximity whose vantage point does not allow me to see that big question that eludes answer, that exudes question that twists and turns in my mind to jumble up in left down out right obfuscation.

JPL Pancakes

I’m going to the annual open house at Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) this morning. What fun! Really looking forward to this.

I’ve been planning to try and blog tumble and tweet (sounds like a law firm) a pancake on the subject of whatever is on my mind, strikes my fancy or is in the news. I’ll try this every Saturday morning. This is my first. And how fitting that my first prototype will be in honor of JPL.

Here are my JPL pancakes. Ummm yum yum Pancakes!


I mixed up some Krusteaz, no Krusty the clown puns please, and used a baggie to write out the letters. I dunno Krusteaz, baggie there could be something punny threre.


I’m in a bit of a hurry to get showered and out to Pasadena. Apparently parking is limited. At any rate I didn’t have time to catch any bubbles or other distinguishing marks in the pancake cooking experience. I tried turning them over but they fell apart. Next week I plan to write each character backwards mirrored or inverted so they will be cooked when I turn them over.

c ya… Review or Discard at Will (rodaw), jeffa

I hope you’ll consider leaving a comment and send to friends and family.

Bear souls


In a sea of billions one, now two or many more souls laid bear. Glad to know that the argument I have within is probably part of the human condition rather than a deArangement exclusive of my mind. A habit, whose roots are long forgotten, of telling myself “You’re no good” is occasionally argued rationally by my blurting out at myself assertively that “yes I am.”

I’m working towards living the now rather than remembering past sins or anticipating improbable future scenarios and hope that as I bear my soul to myself and others that centering on now increases my self worth.

Odd that I should be so afraid to move past the comfort of familiarity even though in moments of clarity I realize and admit the toxicity of that familiarity. And in each movement towards that goal I note in retrospect that it wasn’t that hard and the rewards were plentiful.


Who new following a fellow nerd @SaraJChips would lead me to another human, @apocalypstick, in a vast sea of billions that from time to time must correct the bear within ourselves. Thanks Sarah, thank you Almie.

Check out this post by Almie Rose that seeded my above moment of clarity in a comment on her post. Funny that this heathen would find writing inspiration on Easter Sunday. Good Orderly Direction moves in mysterious ways.
