As far as work goes, I have spent the last few months working with the Bosch Rexroth aluminium profiling system (or Aluminum as my american friends like to call it). You can find them at http://abbyservices.com/alavert/alavert-d/ if you’re curious. For those who have never heard of it, it’s a system of metal profiles, or struts, that interconnect similar to Meccano/Erector Set and it is used to build structures, desks, and anything else you can think of. I really like the system, and maybe I will start blogging about some of the various things I have built if there’s interest. I currently use it to build workstations, tooling, and small cabinets to house various pieces of equipment.
I have done a bit of coding, I made a great start to my Mahjong game, and hope to finish it as soon as I get some available time!
