Same Project, Different Project

In fact, it’s something along the lines that I’ve already done.

I’ll be excluding the protective Schottky diode from the power input because of 1) the energy cost and 2) there’s little risk of reversing polarity. Why? Because I’ll instead use Anderson Powerpoles to greatly reduce the risk of inverting voltage. While I don’t like to claim anything is impossible, once configured, they’re rather idiot-proof.

While I’ve only just started on this, and have already completed its 20m equivalent, I feel that I crave a greater degree of complexity.

I should also see about perhaps an UltimateS3 or a Megaprocessor (more) or maybe something somewhere between the two.


Because I can.


If a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.

— Arthur C. Clarke

I’d like to have a more accurate reference but presently lack the inertia to track it down. Not that I necessarily doubt that he said or wrote that, but I’d like to attribute it more accurately to a speech, paper, or book.

Also, I will never assert that something is impossible.
