Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.

    What a magnificent piece of engineering. I worked on a teeny, tiny piece of the Apollo 11 project’s first moon landing.

    Sniff. I actually miss writing GN&C flight software for the shuttles and the people involved. Did that for 5 yrs. It was only years later that the realization for how cool that job was hit me. Some of my code accepted inputs on those keyboards, peddles and control sticks, then took actions and displayed results on those DEUs.

    DFOR008 – EOL.
