Team Canada/Philippines, go, go, go

Well, "Team Canada/Philippines" is all of one person, but I certainly wish there was more of me to go around, with the amount of work and preparation that I need to do before my flight leaves on Wednesday! I managed to get a hold of two workshop-compatible computers (one running on an Athlon 3000+ and an Intel Celeron 1.80 GHz) courtesy of my roommate, but this means that I have to back up many gigabytes of data before I can start dismantling them and packing up the motherboard and the memory cards. I also need to pick up some infrared LEDs and some conductive thread before I leave. I'm bringing a small toolkit of hardware (a couple of Arduino boards, resistors, capacitors, wires, soldering equipment, ....)

The trip is going to be exhausting. Over the next 2.5 weeks, this is what I'll be doing:
  • Vancouver-Seattle by bus
  • Seattle-Geneva (meet up with friends and visit the large hadron collider at CERN)
  • Geneva-Vienna
  • Vienna-Maribor
  • Maribor-Ljubljana
  • Ljubljana-Seattle
  • Seattle-Vancouver
Totally excited to see and work with Angelo again, and in such a different context from [LBA2].
