Work


Time to figure out why the winch isn't working

Well duh, it helps if you plug it in

Yay! The winch works! I can save people now!

Next project: the emergency siren and PA system.

I'm heading down to Canadian Tire tomorrow to pick up a few pieces. I'm thinking about putting a CB in the truck if I can find a decent waterproof one at a fair price — part of the purpose of this truck now is to make sure that if there's, for example, a medical emergency, that no matter what there's a path to safety and help.


On other work news, I dug up my IAM to-do list from my old harddrive. Here's the current contents. As always, feel free to give suggestions for new features, either via IM or via the Whatever Forum.

Hmmm… Maybe I shouldn't be asking for more things to do. But then again, everyone uses the system a little differently, so I very much appreciate the ideas… Yes, I definitely did the grunt work and kick started the design, but I absolutely think there's shared credit not just for this community but also for the software that it runs on.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
