Max - Writing, playing with some FPGAs and maybe taking a drive to go find a bald Eagle. I took a photo of one in a neardby wildlife refuge a while back it looks like he's got some string or something caught on his foot. I let the refuge people know and I want to go see if I cacn find him flying around and doing okay.
