First post

Here’s my first step into the blogosphere.

Matt Burriola. Just your average nice guy/tech worker by day, DIY geek by night. Those who know me would describe me as quiet, steady, stoic, passionate (in a very controlled sort of way), perfectionistic, generous, stubborn, slightly funny. I work in the IT industry and love what I do.  When I am not at work, I can be found at home spending time with my family or working on various home projects. When time permits, I’ll be tinkering with my ’66 Volkswagen Beetle, circuit bending, or buying/selling on eBay.

My interests are varied, and tend to come and go in 6-year cycles.
- Computers – well this habit always stays around.
- Tinkering – with just about anything. These days, it’s Volkswagens, air tools, and speak & spells.
- Volkswagens – used to have a 1967 VW Bug but sold it in 2006.  Now I drive a 1966 Bug.
- eBay – this is where my play money comes from.
- Carputers (car-based computers). I once installed a Mac Mini in the glove box of my Mazda 3.  I eventually grew tired of dealing with it so I ripped it out and put the stock head unit back in.  I now just use an iPhone interface to play my tunes in the car.
- Music – I play saxophone – every Sunday at church.  I also am slowly trying to learn guitar.
- RC Sailplanes (gliders). Haven’t done this in a few years.

I’m probably one of the last 300 internet citizens to create a blog, but better late then never.

My purpose here is to share what I’m up to, what I’m thinking/looking at, random cool things I’ve found, new things I’ve created/for sale, stuff like that.
I might also be sharing a few schematics or diagrams of circuit bending, tips, tricks, etc.
If you’ve read all this then I’m honored – thanks for your time.

  2. Ebay sales are great for me. Lots and lots of sales occur daily on eBay. It would be very difficult to maintain such a great level of traffic without it. Thanks for stopping by!
