Shortly after they started advertising here, they sent me one of their flagship products—a custom azimuthal projection, or great circle, map.

On an azimuthal projection map, according to Wikipedia, “all points on the map are at proportionally correct distances from the center point, and that all points on the map are at the correct azimuth ...

My first Arduino class a success

I held my first Arduino class yesterday at All Hands Active (AHA!), a makerspace here in Ann Arbor.I had six students, including a father and his daughter, a high school student, and three other adults. To teach the class, I used an earlier version of the Sparkfun Inventor’s Kit Guide, even though we didn’t use the Inventor’s Kit in the class.

Concentrate on Your Product

When I was growing up, I used to spend most weekends with my father. Like most fathers I knew, my dad loved to watch sports.

So, you might ask, what’s the problem? Even though you both were relatively close in frequency, you apparently weren’t interfering wit...
