We also have fizzygeek's Sirius satellite radio service working again. The original radio (a Sportster 4) totally died after a couple of months, so she called for a replacement. None were available, and Sirius would repeatedly say her account was in arrears, even though it was frozen until a replacement radio arrived. One finally arrived, but lived only 2 minutes before losing the ability to see its antenna. A third radio was finally shipped, and actually works. Happily, with all the credits and free stuff she got as apologies, the next 6 month's worth of service only cost her a few dollars.
I have been having fun playing with Legos Mindstorms and am writing control software for a Bitscope 40MS/s USB oscillocope and burning up all of my free time commuting.
