Wish I’d been born a hardware engineer

A resounding success by any accounts.  Engineers had great fun playing with our kit and the many children who visited us – 100 +/- with their teachers, teaching assistants and or parents.

A few issues – a gross understatement – again due to computer hardware issues, this time W8.1, possibly W7 Managed Desktop, quite certainly USB 3.0 as well as W8.1 signature verification or whatever they call it with the MakeyMakey’s – it’s all been far too complex for the other side of my brain.

So I’ve taken solace in Lee Marvin’s song I was born under under a wandering star while all the time wishing I’d been born a hardware engineer! 🙂
