The USB charger that I keep talking about is starting to take shape in the form of small prototypes. More on this specific instance tomorrow, but this is more of a high level view.

This electronics thing, for as much as I talk about it, is still relatively new to me. Sure, I’ve played around with stupid things and I know bunches of theory. It’s the practical that can get you more often though.

The hard-won lessons. The little things.

But then sometimes things work they way you want them to.

Yes, you need to take care to make sure that everything you can think of has been thought of. The problem is knowing what can go wrong that you haven’t yet learned can go wrong.

Mistakes are how you learn.

Of course, it’s nice when things don’t break sometimes to give you a much-needed boost now and then.  :-)
