About Me

I have been a developer for 14 years programming in Java, Groovy, Python, C#, C and several other languages. I currently work for The Babcock and Wilcox Corporation where I develop boring Enterprise Technology, specifically creating and managing customizations to a large proprietary J2EE application. In my spare time however, I work on all sorts of projects using many technologies from writing C for AVR microcontrollers to Java web based applications for automating my home. This blog is a way for me to show off my projects and how I built them.

The wires that I am running now are for the fireflyís. Each wire has an LED light on the end of it. They are all controlled to brighten and dim individually to look like real fireflyís! After I finish putting the branches up I will thread the fireflyís into the leaves. At night I will then have stars in the sky and fireflyís in the trees. Sounds magical huh?

Here is another shot of the firefly wires.

Now I am beginning to fasten the silk leave branches to the main branches of the Pooh tree. I drill a small hole into the wood branches and then use clear silicon to secure the silk branches onto the tree. In this shot you can also see the firefly wires for the Pooh tree.

Itís really starting to look like a tree now! Iím excited!
