WxService Update Available
  • WxService ow4j110702
    • Modified anemometer to provide more accurate readings, including n-order curve fit coefficients. First order curve fit is provided by default, but if you have calibrated the instrument, you might benefit from second order operation.

Note: this update will require you to delete all anemometer.*.data.scale configuration entries and hit "Apply", to force the service to revert to the new default values.

Contact Me
For anyone who has been trying to contact me using the form below, please accept my apologies. My email changed in the process of Verizon being bought out by Frontier, and the contact info fell through the cracks. To paraphrase Mr. Spock, "I have fixed that flaw in my programming."

This site is dedicated to my interest in engineering. I use it as a place to just put stuff "out there" for anyone who might be interested, as well as a job search tool. This page contains my engineering web log (to your left). Anything that seems timeless enough, or too involved for a log entry may get it's own page as a full-blown article. And, of course, my resume is here for anyone who might be considering hiring me to do something. Email me.

About Me
I have worked as a broadcast engineer, electronics designer (analog and digital) and software developer. I especially enjoy audio engineering, although I've been writing software for the last several years, since that's where the opportunities are in the Pacific Northwest (this is Microsoft country after all). I'm currently working as a Senior Staff Engineer -- Resume at another large independent software vendor in Washington State.

Futurama Web Site
(not my best side)

I majored in mathematics and physics in college. Other interests include music appreciation (baroque, classical and early romantic, ragtime, and 60's and 70's rock & roll), high fidelity audio electronics, meteorology and of course, computing hardware and software. I tend to think a lot like this guy.
