I'm Steven Quinn and in my free time you can find me doing 3d printing, working with micro-controllers, or just finding something DIY to do. Follow along below on my various projects.
In the never ending quest of trying to keep my office neat and organized, one of those items that seems to never really have a home is my laptop when it’s not in use, so it tends to get either stacked on top of something, or it’s the bottom of the pile. Either way, it […]
