I'm an systems engineer, with some focus on complex systems, signal processing and a bit of control systems. My current job title is "Senior Satellite Systems Engineer". I am also a hobby photographer, and fairly avid programmer. I am the programmer of the Android app Psychic Tester, and my newest app, Ham Finder. I am also the author of the blog, The Making of a Ham, and the photographer on PearsonArtPhoto.com.

To see some of my photography, check out the following sites:

There is nothing wrong with posting a question that is on topic here, that is appropriate somewhere else. There is overlap between sites, and nothing really wrong with that.

comment How much water should be carried while hiking in the desert?
@LBell: I have run out before, but never more than a mile from the base area. And such times I've always been well hydrated beforehand.

comment What do I need to look for in good, quality hiking boots?
If you live in a very hot, but dry area, water resistant might not be as required, and might make the shoe too warm.
