Welcome to Mystic Lake Software. This homepage is a portal to my various activities as listed on the sidebar. I don't go into many details on this page since that would only repeat the information on the more detailed pages. 

The current activity - I intermittently rotate through which is my main focus - is robotics. Since last September I've been participating in the NASA Space Robotics Challenge qualifying round. That ends on January 21, 2017, which is tomorrow as I write this. I'll begin writing about it here and in the blog, shortly. The previous major activity was an analysis and discussion of the NASA Sample Return Robot Centennial Challenge.

Ham Radio is a continuing activity, especially communications for incidents. Incidents may include public service events or emergencies.
