Just joined today. I have a growing interest in making and duckduckgo sent me here so I will introduce myself.
Professionally I work in the cybersecurity field for the government. Specifically, I manage our proxy, relevant a/v scanners, vulnerability scanner, and deep packet inspection.
Personally I have a large set of hobbies. FIrst, and foremost, I’m a private pilot and enjoy flying my plane Miss Thang on day trips. Otherwise, I have a wide variety of interests crossing many disciplines. It’s a curse.
Most recently, I’ve gained an interest in watchmaking. So I’m gathering tools for that and, specifiaclly, my interests are confined to mechanical and, to a lesser degree, automatic watches. In short, nothing requiring batteries.
Other than my full time job, I enjoy cooking so I’m in the kitchen most evenings. I also workout 5-6 days a week. My time is limited, in short. On top of everything, I’m engaged and have growing lists of honeydo’s mostly house related. On quiet nights I enjoy smoking cigars and sipping on fine scotch (islay region specifically).
And now I have a growing interest in making. I’d like to build a desk am/fm radio for my office with bluetooth and wired headphones and an inbuilt antenna (if possible). My office blocks alot of signals and it would be a fun project to start with.
Making will include making replacement parts for watches (once i obtain a watchmaker’s lathe).
I also have a growing interest in 3d printing, which is included in making. So I’m rambling.
I hope to make friends here. Cheers.
