Most days I feel pretty lucky. I live in a great part of the country and get to make a living doing what I love. Today I feel obnoxiously lucky. I’m bound for a beautiful place on other side of the planet, Maui, Hawaii! Oh yeah, it’s for work (mostly)!
Up until now almost all developments on the new user-interface and under-the-hood improvements with OpenVDMv2 have been centered around software and a web-interface installed shipboard. And while OpenVDMv2 provides mechanism for getting data off the vessel, not as much effort has been made to provide a slick portal for accessing that data on shore… until now.
In addition to being a career datarat, I have some other interest like kite boarding, standup paddle boarding and motorcycles but my most recent interests is machining. I’m learning mostly through YouTube and to practice I’ve acquired a small mill, lathe, drill press, band-saw and… CNC router!
