I've seen a few of his vid's. Eccentric but fun to watch. I wouldn't want the electric bill for that lab!

See how neat it is? That's how mine is going to look when it's done. ;D

:) I wonder if Mr Carlson is single??

I'm about 95% certain that I heard him mention in one of his videos that his GF/wife (not suggesting he has both, simply that I can't recall which) does some of the filming or video editing. 

Sorry, Sue...   :(

I have to admit I drool over his collection of gear myself.  He's got quite the setup there.  Some one of these years I'll start to catch up to him a little, and get things set up properly.  I have an unmitigated disaster here, with stuff scattered all over the house.  At some point the basement will get finished and it will migrate down there. (partially because I'm afraid if I bring it all up here the floor will collapse!)

I aspire in that direction as well.  Slowly but surely...

Regarding weight, can you replace the laptop with a tablet or smartphone instead?

That would be nice. Do you know of a circuit capture program that can be used on a tablet? Kicad doesn't work on a tablet.

I also wanted the laptop so I can create some designs in 3D. As far as I know there isn't a good 3D program for the tablet.

Those requirements do make the available options much smaller. As ECEdesign mentioned, a Surface running Windows might be an option. Linux on a tablet might be another. Depends if cutting the weight is worth the cost and effort.

She's brand new captain.... take her out slow.

Nice! We finally get to see all the goodies from your shopping cart. :-+

Mighty hefty shelves you've got there.

I go on vacation tomorrow, more like a staycation.

Have a good staycation.

just in case this has not been seen

not my lab



Is Mr Carlson a member here?

Hah - he is married.
Let's also hope his lab is as well constructed as he suggests it is in one of his videos. Everyone keeps telling us the west coast of Canada(Vancouver area) will have a big earthquake on of these days and he has more then a few pounds of gear in that lab.

He certainly knows how to make use of the vertical.

I suppose he'd just drop under the workbench right quick. ;D

Getting out afterward might be a problem, though.

Yeah, huh?  I have some of that equipment.  It is many things.  I can assure everyone that light in weight is definitely not one of them!!  That stuff would be downright ugly in an earthquake, and I wouldn't want to be anywhere near it in the event of one.   :o

Mr Calson must have some serious power going in to his lab, all of that gear running at the same time must be drawing 3-4kW at least.
I did notice one of my favourites a HP 5245L :-+
Whoah! Watch where that landed we might need it later.

Come here Sue, you can get a Customary marriage, which means you can have multiple wives, like the Mormons. Not sure if they have gotten around to the multiple husband side yet, but there is same sex marriage.

I was wondering how Mr. Carlson uses those scopes? I like to see things as I probe them. Seems he has to do contortions to see the display from his bench.

(might work for him in his marriage though!) >:D

Grrrrls are too difficult to get nowadays and if you get one, it has an expensive maintenance. Like an italian car.

Absolutely agree. They kick you to the curb like trash so easily. I'll stick to being single and focus on me... My education.

Yes, but the car won't cheat on you with another car nor will it make fun of the size of your 'tailpipe'.  Besides, the car will let you be in control.

Also, the car won't complain if you leave the toilet seat up or if you fart whilst watching football on the TV in just your underpants whilst consuming pizza and beer. Who says men can't multitask?

I can only speak for myself on this... I won't complain if the car gets old or starts looking old. I won't complain if the car stops working as good as the day I got it. The car, no matter what, will always be beautiful to me. I will always love the car as long as that car is still in the driveway each and every morning I wake up. :palm:

The game always ends, but great companionship lasts a lifetime.

After all these years I still love my wife.
