I finally finished putting together this 3D printed Formula 1 car. It's an "opensource" project called OpenRC F1 which I found on Thingiverse. It was printed on an Ender 3 in several pieces and secured together using M3 screws.

All black was choose for this first test and I'll likely swap out some pieces in other colors. I just need to order some electronics to make it a functioning RC car.

After learning Solidity, and smart contract development for about a month, I've decided to launch an NFT project to test my learnings.

I decided to create my own collection called "Crypto Conway". First, I had to create a smart contract using Solidity. This was a challenging experience that came with many learning experiences. As an example, deploying to the Ethereum Mainnet was gonna cost me $200-400, which wasn't gonna work for a project designed just for learning. So I had to learn about the Polygon/Matic network and decided to deploy there.

After deploying my first smart contract, I built a web app in React. While I'm very familiar with building web apps, there was plenty to learn as I had to figure out how to interact with the blockchain.

You can view the app here: https://www.cryptoconway.com/

My girlfriend, Elena, is beginning her phd in phycology this year. We decided to move in together as well as move across the country together. Well, I suppose it's still the Midwest.

I'm working on a site called Morse Code Guru. This is going to be an interactive app that will teach people how to send and receive Morse Code.

I just launched a demo of some of the morse code logic at www.morsecode.guru. The tricky part of this was breaking down the lengths of clicks into 'dots' and 'dashes', and then into English. 

The sound is achieved using an oscillator node with the web AudioContext. I'll likely need to add sound controls and maybe the ability to change the pitch.

A lot of the logic for the lessons is also ready, so mostly what's left is writing the educational material.

The DR is a beautiful country, even if our timing was poor as we left when covid was starting to get serious. Luckily we avoided it and still had a great time.

Amsterdam was a real surprise to me, as I did not know just how beautiful and unique the city was. I highly recommend it to anyone.
