    I completed my final commitment to the Digital Lead Learner program today. All I had to do was stand at a booth for about an hour and talk about Minecraft. It took some doing to get there but it’s done now.

    I got a 3D printer today. The new drive belt for my lathe arrived, too. It’s been a busy day of putting things together.

  • Just an Excuse to Use my New iPad

    Yesterday, I bought the new 10.5″ iPad Pro, the companion keyboard, and the Apple Pencil. As you might already suspect, I’m writing this post on my new iPad. And, it’s amazing.
