Just wanted to ask you, you have a section on your site called "My Inventions" but it really lacks saying what your inventions are, it's mostly pic's. I was asked what you created and other then your high voltage metre I was lost.
And by the way....how come you never made me a strobe light... You know I can't solder with a crap, nor do I have the equipment. I feel scammed as your daughter.
Gee Gary, At least your daughter is taking some interest in your profession and hobbies! My daughter could care less about my electronic and computer programming hobby, until her computer crashes... Then its "Dad , my computer crashed. You have to come fix it this weekend" Her house is 100 mile away. Regards, Richard L. Meyn

Hi rmeyn, She is only taking an interest Because Someone Asked her what I invented. Otherwise I Doubt she would have ever asked.
She also Very Rarely calls me, I think once last year, Mabe twice, and she lives about 300 miles away from me. She usually Also only calls when she needs something.
And I NEVER Said she was Stupid.
It is also very difficult to really explain an invention when the person doesn't understand the origional problem to create the need for an invention.
As an example: The Insulator Tester I Mentioned.
Hydro Workers were being Electrocuted because the insulators on Huge HV Lines were failing.
A Brief Explaination: There are Typically Strings of Porcelain Insulators, each one has a maximum voltage rating of 80,000 volts. If one or more insulators have Failed and If the worker Gets too Close to them, It will than create an Electric Arc to the worker, killing him. By testing the Insulators, this can be determined before hand, giving the worker the knowledge, as to how safe it is to get near the insulators.
Now If my Daughter Really wanted a Good Explaination, She could have Phoned me. I am A Very Slow Typest, (Pick and Peck) and I am not prepared to give Full Details here. Far too Time Consuming.
My Personal Interests include: Analogue Electronics, Woodworking, Metalworking, Inorganic Chemistry, Swimming, Camping, Kayaking and Vegetable Gardening.
