Robotics projects have been put on hold while we recover from the earthquake out here in Hawaii. My robots survived fine (some books fell on one of them, but that's it.) The shop more or less survived fine. Mill and lathe are still on the bench, though I did have a hand scraper and a couple of other tools fall. My wife had more tool avalanches than me, including some torches (thank goodness we never leave tanks attached!)

Most of my time has been spent at work trying to get things operational there. It's amazing how violent an earthquake can be. It's even more amazing to see how fast our facility has been brought back online. It's entirely due to the efforts of some phenomenal people. With any luck we'll be back on the sky tonight, maybe even before the bad weather clears.

Back to work!
