Puzzles, from Rubik cube (I used to be able to always do it under 29 seconds.) to Eternity II (Its got a $2 million prize.), AI/neural networks, lottery prediction (yes I know your not supposed to be able to, but experimental results speak otherwise..), earth sheltered buidlings, concrete waterproof domes, photonic/quantum computing/CPU design, OS design, forum/chat/MMORPG software development (I'm also in 1,900+ forums.), all things space such as Google Lunar X Prize, community design, fitness/weight lifting (got to get fit to build my own house!), Nanotechnology (Specifically brain replacement, immortality here I come!) and I used to play Eve-Online for a couple of years to study economics, people management, logistics and whether a reliable income could be achieved from this sort of job (The answer is generally "no" unless your into exploiting people just like the real world..).

I like perfecting time


Image


- M-Audio Audiophile Firewire Souncard - Digital out to Behringer

-Behringer DEQ2496 digital eq - used as digital/analogue primary preamp and
volume control/ room eq
-Behringer DCX2496 digital crossover - using "Le Cleache" calculated 18db
buttersworth crossovers, time correction and inverted midrange to achieve
optimal phase response

-Tannoy MX2 PURE DC Hi/Mid monitors. I have removed the analogue crossover
and personally machined a heatsink containing two 30 watt amps of my own
design These are particularly special as the +/-
28v powering the amps comes from a Battery Bank behind the stereo.

- Jaycar Studio 350 sub woofer amp. The pcb was a kit i built and the
enclosure and power supply was personally machined and constructed

- Jaycar 12 inch carbon dual voice coil subwoofer. I used Bass box pro 6 to
custom design the enclosure and match the bass response for my room and
needs. -6db @ 20hz

- Phillips cd210 Top loading tangentially tracking cd player. I built a
precision clock (master oscillator) with its own power supply based on a
popular recipe (the kwak clock). Analogue output is modified to zero
oversampling mode. It drives the Behringer DEQ2496 with a 75 OHM digital out
i hacked from its 7220 chip.

- Project Turntable. Custom power supply. Custom built glass plater. Grado
Black cartridge. Behringer micro phono stage powered by pure Battery DC

- Teac X-7 reel to reel. Found in OP Shop U/S. Repaired to working order.
Purity is Power

As I get fitter I need less sleep, and I've always been hyperactive, so I don't need much anyhow. (I just have to avoid anyone wanting to give me pills to quieten me down and 'cure' me of my hyperactivity..)

I can lucid dream, so I can work on projects whilst I'm asleep, used to be handy when I programmed a lot as I could do the coding whilst I slept and wake up in the morning and rattle it all out.

It would be nice to run off copies of myself, or overclock.. then I could get more done :-)
