Comic Info:

I have a great mechanical intuition. It doesn't translate well to electronics, especially when that intuition tells me the best way to learn about a new thing is to just mess with it to see how it deflects...

I get where your coming from on this because I build a lot of stuff that can take a good wrenching, but I learned pretty early on that electronic components are a lot like sex: If you have to force it, it probably wasn't meant to be.

The usual problem with electronic components is having to be extra careful not to release the little smoke capsule...

Well, if you're into the ironic name for it, yes. The 'smoke capsule' is just more subtle! And anyway, I simply don't believe in magic (or much else, come to that...)

As an electronics technician she's going to give ME a nervous twitch.

It's the same with aircraft maintenance engineers. We're always having to fix things the mechanical guys have destroyed with ham-fistedness. :P

You did a little introductions comic explaining who all your current coworkers are, right? Has your electronics guy seen these: http://kck.st/1oiFUep ? I get mine around my birthday next February.

Books and Cons oh MY

HEY EVERYONE did you hear that I'm still alive somehow!? I have a new book! You can get it!

I'm customizing orders RIGHT NOW, every waking moment when I'm not attending thousands of conventions or working that full time job thing that I do. I was already at Emerald and FanExpo before I even had time to think about making this blog.  Next you will find me at:

Calgary Expo: Apr 25-27 (not the Thursday)

TCAF (Toronto): May 10-11

VANCAF (Vancouver): May 25-26

These events will be phenominal!! The last ones are FREE to attend! COME SAY HI :D

"But Jam will you be at _____??" I don't know! Probably not, nothing else for the year is planned or confirmed. I might throw something onto the list for fall but definitely not for summer. ALRIGHT, that's all, I have to get back to everything SEE YOU SOON!
