Random things from recently

Added on by Spencer Wright.

Things I've learned:

  • Visible light communication is a thing - and it predates radio. 
  • Banks can destroy my will.
  • Talk to your suppliers about packaging, and don't let them ship stuff to you individually bagged.
  • Industrial quality framed solder stencils are intense.
  • 70% OEE is something to brag about.

Things I'm working on:

  • Saying no to more things.
  • It's not that EAGLE Cad doesn't have features; they're just a PITA to learn.
  • Being really clear about my domain expertise - and monetizing it as such.
  • Keeping actual finances, as opposed to just spending money and hoping it works out.

Things I'm not really working on:

  • Exercise. It's been last on my list for a while now, and I'm beginning to accept that that'll be the case until The Public Radio gets further along.
  • Taking time off. I've spent a *lot* of my ostensibly "free" time working over the past months, and I'm not making much effort to change that - at the moment.
