Echo? NO!

Well, here's the first thing I've made in a while. At work, we need to start calibrating sound level meters, so we need an anechoic chamber to test them in. This is literally a chamber that allows no echoes. I just finished building the first phase of ours yesterday. It's essentially an old rack mount box that we fished out of the trash, lined with fiberglass insulation, and with a door on the front and a back wall. More on exactly how I made it later.
In other news, Katie took me out to a They Might Be Giants concert last night. Well, THAT rocked! All I have to say is... 6 encore songs in 2 encores. Wow.

Another Brief Entry...

Well, today's much like any other week day these days. Get up, get dressed, run to work, calibrate, calibrate, calibrate, make phone calls, calibrate, plan corporate strategy, file grant requests to take over the world, come home, clean, sleep. Yadda, yadda, yadda.
This past weekend was spent at Katie's Grammie's place down in southern PA, where we had a great couple of days doing absolutely nothing. (Ahhhhh...) But now it's back to the grind.
Later this evening perhaps I'll post about some of the other things going on, like how Notre Dame is like a snowstorm.
