Occasional angler, gardener, and hiker. Even less occasional golfer - although I hope to get my kids into it this summer so that may yet increase.

I make very small computers and put wheels on them, sensors too, and program them to move around and explore their world. In recent years I've been putting legs rather than wheels on them. the math to make them move around is far more challenging but that works well with my other hobby, which is maths.

I've started playing with communications between units as well as some different approaches to their decision making processes. My goal is to eventually give my little mechanical minions a task and let them figure out how to subdivide the tasks based on their individual abilities. Perhaps something like assembling a particular structure out of lego and letting them decide how they'll go about building it. That's going to be a very tough nut to crack, which is why it's so much fun. I have some concepts I've borrowed from evolutionary biology but I have absolutely no idea how to implement them in a machine environment yet. I suspect the secret to artificial intelligence in swarm robotics in going to be through the implementation of a form of artificial evolution.

Hmmm, where to start:

- real sports: skydiving, rock-climbing, auto-racing and bull-fighting ("the rest are just games" - Hemingway)
- photography, motorcycle-racing, fencing, custom guns
- and of course...

And on the right is that - as far as diseases go - Jack of All Trades & Master of None - Quricketpitchtoo Flu.

I love these!

....wow, so many talented people here.

Sure egg me on.

Turn to Stone:



This vessel holds my extremely rare sample of a syndrome that mimics priaprism stasistosis but presentation involves the entire, usually male subject. Ranges from dry to tropical temperate climates. Actually hardy enough to withstand Arctic conditions! Rare for a Rare Tropical Disease!

The Caribbean gave the world the most profitable disease ever!



And it turns out it is a virus in the tobacco, a very rare tobacco virus but almost everywhere. Elusive but most powerful and I obtained my sample by greatest chance.
