About Me

My photo
I'm a life-long New Englander, father of 4 challenging kids (I know: I'm supposed to say "wonderful", but while that'd be true, technically speaking, it'd also be misleading), and fortunate husband to my favorite wife of more than 20 years. I've got over 20 years experience breaking things as a test engineer, quality engineer, reliability engineer, and most recently (and most enjoyably) a Product Safety / EMC Compliance Engineer. In the photo, I'm on the left.

Just a quick drop-in to share something new (to me):

A new planet that could be 33% diamond!    <----It's a link!

Just cool...that's all.


  1. Pet peeve: referring to other stars around which planets orbit as "suns" The Sun is the name of our star. It is proprietary. Get your own star.

  2. Friggin' astronomers!

    Actually, I don't think that I was sensitive to that point. You know what that means: I've learned something new, and therefore I can go home!

  3. Someone will eventually find a way to get up there and ruin it.
