September is here and it’s back to the grind for college students. A new batch of engineering majors are gearing up for the toughest four (or more) years of their lives. There are dozens of subjects an engineering major can focus on, and the tragedy of majoring in any engineering field is that in spite of all the classes, studying, allnighters, and existential dread, college can only prepare you for so much. The best way to gain experience as an engineer is in the field.

Collaborating with my wife on this project to defeat the squirrels will be fun. Tracy is a Mac user, and I like using my iPad as much as possible because of its portability and the cool apps so this will test the true cloud capability of xDesign.

Green pastures, trundling tractors and preposterously early mornings. Despite the fact that agriculture has evolved rapidly in the last 100 years, there are certain parochial stereotypes that are hard to shift. But make no mistake.

What used to be near impossible for the consumer to acquire GOOD information and
