Sorry for the lack of updates recently - expect more soon

I'm in the process of moving across the country (I've made the move but I'm still not moved into my permanent housing yet), so DRE work is at a bit of a standstill right now.  However, we've got a couple posts and projects lined up:
-Flamethrower v2 details - the info is written up, it just needs to be reformatted for the web and uploaded.
-New shop - we're going to be setting up a much better workshop, with better tools and more supplies on-hand to ease spontaneous projects.
-Theatrical special effects - one of our friends is a drama teacher, and she needs help.  We'll be making some cool special effects for her production.
-Complete lagermeister - the current lagermeister is only the control system.  Soon, it'll be hooked up to the requisite fridge and heater and actually be in use.
In addition, a couple non-definite possible future projects:
-Cartop rocket launcher - I really want to make a Yakima Rocketbox an actual rocket-launching platform.
-Home bar automation - various gadgets to improve a home bar.
-Home sensor/automation network - a network of microcontrollers (Arduino, Raspberry Pi, or pcDuino-based) with sensors and outputs, that all connect to a single main server to report data and receive instructions.  Not sure what exactly I'd use this for, but I want to combine my hobby of building electronics with my job of writing distributed software.
