    Jack is a slow talking, long winded guy so I play back his YouTube videos a the maximum, 2x, speed. On engineering and technical subjects, I admire his work. As for how he treats others, well I'm a Mark Twain Democrat and he is not. Sad to say, we learned he is undergoing cancer treatment.

    not really leaning yet. i would like to replace the hycam with a 30k model y, and the pip with the possible tesla econobox.
    but for now, everything is out of reach.

    I didn’t even realize but he passed away

    I never got into EVTV but he was a force in the diy movement to be sure

    God rest.

    I was one who was featured in one of his Boardwatch articles on DC area Bulletin Boards in December, 1990. I maintained a list of the current DC area BBSs and their focus for the years when they were viable. First Atari oriented and then IBM/PC. Most lists were out of date as boards came and went frequently. The uniqueness of my list was it was updated by my contacting with about 600 boards every month to verify they were still operating. (Automated via a Basic program I conned someone into writing for me. Bless him.) And then the BBSs died as the internet come into wide availability.
