Multimeters...

"When placed in warm water, the multimeter averaged 2kΩ."

You're not supposed to put multimeters in water!!!   (Sorry, couldn't resist..... :-)

I'm sure your new life will have idyllic and not-so-idyllic moments, but it will all be interesting, and you can't ask for more than that.  Best of luck with it!

@Ben,

Clear air, chilly weather, spectacular views,

Would it be correct to assume that you have a Newtonian reflector with a big honkin' mirror?  Or intend to obtain one?  I know if I ever won a lottery I'd move to the mountains with the biggest damn mirror obtainable.

Good luck with your RV!  The view that you'll have sounds incredible.


As cool as the "RV lifestyle" sounds, I'm not sure I would like living wihtout a garage!

Nice....

Your idea reminds me of this guy whose blog I ran across: http://timmystoyota.blogspot.com/  - except he's in Alaska in an RV!

What a classic hardware hack. Just like watching an episode of McGyver!

Excellent blog. More please.

two years after we published this hack, I'm wondering how life is going for you after hitting the road? Hope it's great!

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
