babbling that i brook

jack has beat feet

December 18, 2003


My minor excuse for a life and obsessions, er, interests are being covered at NoMuse. Hegira.org remains as a chunk of history and a hidey-hole from which I can work on secret projects. Follow the turtle, quick like a bunny.

Go.

Why are you still here?

 

pimp portable amp

October 9, 2003

There have been cmoy's, a47's, modified linkwitz crossfeeds, meta42's and now the pimp portable ppa headphone amplifier. The ppa features a modified linkwitz crossfeed, bass boost (still in need of tuning), AD8610 op amps (socketed with Burr Brown opa627 and opa634 in the listening queue), 12 buffers, a battery board housing 12AAA NiMH batteries and a recharge circuit, a toaster and the kitchen sink.

 

first cmoy amp comes off the production line

June 12, 2003

I completed my first headphone amplifier based on the cmoy design with help and soldering direction from Number 6. It sounds good, and I'm looking forward to modifying this circuit before moving onto some others.

Update! 6/17/03 Marginally better pictures replace the previous pictures.

 

how many bags of cement for this pad?

April 21, 2003

Number 6, Matt and I spent some quality Easter time mixing and pouring cement. The question, it turns out, is whether the master engineer can actually calculate volume.

Photos, primarily of ceramic art work, from my recent trip to NCECA in San Diego.

 

mr. president, we have sheetrock

February 17, 2003

What was that? Icecubes in hell? Maybe.

Number Six and I spent the president's holiday completing the gas line for the studio heater and applying much sheetrock to the ceiling of the studio. Insulation and sheetrock on the walls to follow -- eventually. No sense in getting carried away at this point.

 

mostly done low fire ceramics

February 3, 2003

Here is a set of follow-up shots to the pictures I posted back in November. The pieces are mostly done, poorly implemented and appear huge on screen. The little teapots are based on about a 3" sphere and the wall pieces are about 8" and 14".

 

current work in progress

November 1, 2002

I've put up a handful of shots of work currently in progress for those interested.

 

another flurry of construction

August 27, 2002

Yes, I know that I'm slow, but progress has been made. I finished framing the seperation of the studio from the garage and have completed the addition of approximately 300 square feet of above the garage storage.

 

jack goes back to school

August 20, 2002

Need to know where jack is when? Yeah, I didn't think so -- unless you happen to be Natalie.

 

busted

March 24, 2002

In an amazing lack of coordination and motor skills, I seem to have broken the two smallest toes on my left foot.

 

building out the studio

January 17, 2002

I managed a round of serious construction designed to seperate the garage from the 'studio'. I installed the southmost third of the wall and storage decking. I took a couple of pictures which may describe what I'm doing better.

 

too many studio classes make jack a tired boy

January 8, 2002

jack's spring 2002 schedule (pdf) here. updated 01.17.02.

 

jack's attempted figure mangling

June 6, 2001

Jack has been attempting to sculpt people again. The last two weeks worth of mangling are available here.
