Current Project: 
I have a LEGO Mindstorm RCX and IR tower that don't work, I'm looking for someone with a working LEGO Mindstorm so I can determine whether it's the RCX or the IR tower I have that isn't working. 
Also, I'm reviewing a book for the CPCUG, a book published by O'Reilly, "Programming LEGO Mindstorms with JAVA" 
Background and Interests: 
As a volunteer trainer for CPCUG, has taught classes on Basics of PC's, Computer Troubleshooting, Windows Maintenance, Basic Mouse Skills, etc. Developing a class on "Introduction to Object Oriented Programming using JAVA" 
Has worked on simulations of spacecraft attitude control systems, i.e. systems for autonomous self-orientation of spacecraft in orbit, "spacecraft are radio-controlled robots in space." Also worked on design of a microcontroller-based device to capture, store and reproduce consumer infrared control signals used to control TV's, VCR's, etc.
