I’m the kind of person who loves exploring new ideas. And, I enjoy the process of tinkering and learning. I do need a practical purpose for much of what I do, otherwise I tend to lose interest.
In the past few years, I’ve collected thousands of individual electronic parts, from the tiniest surface mount capacitors to complete single-board computers. Thousands. And I have no idea where they are, or exactly how many of a particular part I have left.
So I’m putting most of my projects on hold while I build a massive database, so I can track and organize what I need, and when I need it.
And then I can start building robots again!
