I self-identify as a handsome, physically fit geek.



This is a thread for the geeks of arfcom to show off their work.




I will start.




My first parallel programming challenge.




I am more of a hack than a true geek, hope to see some real geek work here.

I don't have video of it, but I wrote a program to control the charging of batteries in an all electric vehicle back in college for a project.  I think it was a Ford Expedition that was converted to an all electric vehicle.

That sounds interesting, could apply to solar panel control of battery charging.

I write and design software for a living, so the last thing I want to do when I get home is write more software.  Am I the anti-geek?

I am in the same camp as you, but this parallella board stirs a response below the waist for me, so I code at home (rare for me).

I did pick up a new RasbPi and a bunch of accessory boards.  I want to control my kegerator and home-brewing equipment with it.  But my lack of desire to code at home is delaying the entire thing.  One of these days.

How hard would be to code that though?  (my only programming experience was C++ in high school 11 years ago)

I geek out with lots of junk.  

Building Megasquirt engine management and GPIO transmission controllers and computers.
I have probably long since lost the pictures...  Building ATX motherboard based computers into dish network DVRs.  
Scratchbuilding R/C cars,  boats,  trucks,  planes and multi rotors.  
Making and programming arduino mini and micro controllers to embed in R/C cars and planes.
Making shit on the lathe and mill for the race cars.
The list goes on..

ETA:  I have some video but cannot embed anymore.

Here was the latest project.  
Fox body Mustang with a LS 5.3 turbo installed.   Required an engine management computer and a GPIO to run the 4L80e,  then a shit ton of machining little parts and even more wiring.  
And to its right is a Fox body Capri with a 2013 Coyote 5.0 and tremec 6 speed installed







Speaking of geeking out.  Here is some running 4 stroke Conely V-8s



And a cammer.



Just a snippet.  LOL

I use those worthless building codes all the time, you know, the building codes that don't mean much anyway as long as we have carpenters for our enlightenment.  

For some of these codes and standards, the best way to learn them is to write a spreadsheet.  This is NFPA 68: Standard on Explosion Protection by Deflagration Venting , I hadn't seen it before, so I wrote this:



Before I'd seen that NFPA standard, I didn't even know the difference between deflagration and explosion.

I don't pass them around to to others, except for the one I wrote for sizing residential dryer vents after the worthless and stupid building codes got all strict over that shit.  

I guess that's geeky . . .

I used to be pretty into Minecraft, specifically wiring up redstone circuits - before they completely goatfucked the way redstone clocks (specifically one tick pulse generators) operate.

I posted 2 of my projects to youtube - over built so you can see how they're done..and with slow walkthroughs so you can see the construction. Neither works in a current version of minecraft, due to the aforementioned goatfucking of how redstone works.





I moved most of my creative interests over to KSP - Kerbal Space Program. It's a game that is designed for you to create rockets and go into space.

That's boring. I like to create atmospheric aircraft, particularly rotorcraft.

I tend to geek out on things that I have a need for, or that are related to things I have a need for.



I work in a large service provider lab by day, certifying all aspects of hardware and software on stuff like this:







On my own time, I like to be a bit more tactile since most of what I do for a living is computer based.



I first geeked out on this tractor to turn this:







Into this in my spare time:







Then after geeking out on tractors, I geeked out on pancake motors to get this running hot:







Then did a little programming on this:









All so that I can spend days and days of bush-hogging and track prepping so that I can spend a few hours a year doing this...  :









After doing all that, I still haven't found the time and motivation to get the RasbPi out of the box to finish my home automation project I keep saying I"m going to do.
