LVDT Tutorial

Here's a great tutorial on LVDTs, courtesy of Macro Sensors. You'll find information on what LVDTs are and how they work, how they're used (and what industries use them), what varieties of LVDT exist, and what kind of support electronics you'll need if you want to use one. It's easy to save and print the primer; it's available in PDF format.

Bug Identification Site

When the weather is toasty, the insect life is out and about. If you want to identify a mystery bug, you can try BugGuide.Net, an online community of naturalists, hosted by the Iowa State University's Dept. of Entomology. Here you can look through the clickable guide to see if you can identify your mystery bug on your own; alternatively, you can request an ID. Just post a picture on the site and see if someone recognizes what it is.
