I have a few "project" going depending on your definition if the word.

The nerdiest is I'm building a portfolio of some modeling I've done in various CAD programs to have for job applications. (I'dlike a slightly better paying job.)

I'm also designing and building a new intake for my Truck since the sotck airbox is really poor flowing. ('95 Nissan Hardbody)

Lastly, I need to start parting out my '93 Probe GT so I can sell it off in pieces and buy a more fun car come summer. (Modded cars are generally worth more as the sum of their mods rather then whole.)

I've also got some work related coding to do, though I've yet to really solidify what platform Im gonna do it in.

Yep those are perfect. Don't you need a 4 year degree for anyone to trust your CAD designs?

I have an Electrical Engineering Degree. I Co-oped 2 summers at an engineering firm where I leanred AutoCadto do wiring and hydraulic schematics. Currently I do design work for a frame shop using Microstation. I'm now looking for EE jobs with an emphasis on CAD as I know I have the schooling and am very confident that my CAD skills are on par with most.

My tivo hard drive was failing, so I just finished copying all my hacks, scripts, and images to a 200GB drive and enabled LBA48 kernel support.

Installed a new head unit and cold air intake in my truck. Looking for an inexpensive header-back exaust system since there's a hole in mine now tongue.gif

Dug out the old micro-ATX case I started a long time ago for an Xbox->PC Case mod. Hopefully I'll wipe off the dust and finish it soon.

Got back into JP1 remotes, programmed a URC-6131 so it's truly universal and I got rid of the four other remotes cluttering the coffee table.

Yup.
