Dr. Electron, 


Speaking of whom, I had to go poke my nose in his blog... :ph34r:



Thinking it is back to Hanoi, Vietnam next year with excursions into Japan and possibly South Korea. Then again, the new boat cometh … 


Be afraid :o


Based on your update, I went and looked too.


It's gone, doublereef.net is now all kanji characters and registered to some european domain holding company.


Is there another address?


After poking around, he actually seems to have disappeared completely from the web, unless I'm missing something.


wordpress... Don't tell Tom :ph34r:  :P



It seemed rather normal for a blog.  Until you scroll down to the March 26, 2015 entry:


".....The latency threads did hold my interest in the comical vein, and as an engineering mathematician, many nights I lay awake exploring ideas at the extrema. And so, I chuckled as I envisioned the likely scenario of two SDR radios with high DSP latencies working each other. ..."

Holes cut in sails? Beer bottles over the head? Guys guarding boats on the dock? Bar room brawls?WTF??? Fuck the protest committee, why hasn't someone called the cops?


The cops were probably all on the Lower East Side beating on the indigent.


It was in Bellingham Ish.



I imagine the incident helped dispel the notion that Canadians are overly polite.


if it was the 70s we hadn't earned that notion yet. we were still on stubby beer bottles and saying :"eh?"



What?  You guys don't do that any more?  When did that happen?

Once you hit 50 they will send you junk mail every month or so trying to get you to join.


Discounts for rental cars, hotels, etc. - you can get the same through AAA or other organizations.

Not enough tow capacity for anything but a dinghy, but the roof rack is a piece of art if you haul canoes.    Most SUV designers seem to think those rail things are just for decoration and it takes as long to bolt on the cross pieces as it does to replace an axle.   (give or take).   I just bought an used SUV not because my old explorer was worn out, but because I didn't plan ahead and buy the right transmission in 1996.   Go to the dealer and say you want the smallest possible SUV with decent mileage, 2 1/2 ton tow capacity, roof rack and a camera.   They look kind of lost, their minds full of cup holder statistics and third row power seats.   


The roof rack on the US market Outback is a POS.  Subaru sells a more normal roof rack on the Outback over in Europe.
