I’m located in the rural hills of Dawsonville, Georgia, famous for its lore related to running moonshine and racing. If you’re into racing and moonshine it’s the place to be. If you’re into beginning hobbyist electronics, well, not so much maybe. Don’t get me wrong. It’s fairly quiet on our gravel road, and living on a farm does allow for a large amount of space for my hobby (flying RC gliders, drones, etc.). The farm also provides a good source for electronics projects ideas (automated irrigation, weather sensors, keeping track of chill days, RFID for chickens, automation for closing coops at night, etc.).
I am a rank amateur in hobbyist electronics, so I wouldn’t take anything you read on this site as the gospel. There’s bound to be mistakes and misconceptions on my part, but I’d like to think that I’m on the right track with most of my projects. Feel free to send me a comment or email if you like, particularly if you live in the North Georgia area. It’d be nice to hear from some like-minded folks that have an interest in electronics!
What the hell does the name Jasper Fracture mean?
It’s a reference to the conchoidal fracture property found in rocks like jasper, chert, and flint…and I like rocks. Also, I couldn’t come up with anything else and the domain was available (obviously).
Is there more information about racing and moonshine on this site?
No. It’s just a tagline referencing the geographic area in which I live. The site is about hobbyist electronics.
