I’ve been taking a little bit of a blogging/forum break lately—I’ve been busy reading and recharging my batteries from all the writing and editing that went down lately.

In other news, I built a gas manometer for about $12 worth of parts from Home Depot. It works. It beats buying a $139 commercial model.

If you’re starved for words, I just updated the About me page. There are also some reviews which you can find at the top center page of the blog; or here (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9, A, B, C). I’ll keep updating the list as I find them or people tell me about. Reading reviews is my favorite new activity. It’s the first thing I check every morning.

Don’t forget to make room in your calender for the Berkeley meetup in two weeks.
