This weekend, my daughters and I worked on a new super-crazy fast snow sled (built up on old cross country skis) and an ice boat (sail, mast, seats, and runners). Sylvia was working with me and asked "how did you learn to build stuff?" I answered, truthfully, "by working with, and watching, my dad." She smiled broadly. Mara reports that with the sled and boat that "this is going to be the best winter ever." I melt.

A right angle adapter for an IEC power connector. You have lots of those power cords in a box in the basement, but sometimes you need a right angle power cord. Sure, they exist, in both right angle "sideways" and right angle to the back, but how about a universal adapter? Should cost cents to make, sell for a couple of dollars. I could use a few. And right angle USB adapters?
