Hello there. Welcome to Protowrxs.com. Just a few links and some information about our Online Home, Robotics hobby, Car hobby
and others can be found here. Sometimes I blog at http://Blog.StephenNolen.com but not often.

The Nolen Home has been online, live and connected since 1999. The connections have changed from full time analog dialup, to ISDN to cable modem but
the house has continued to be online one way or another all this time with public access to many areas. In the last couple years a mobile / iPhone interface is what
is used the most even while home to handle things like open/closing the garage door, cleaning drying speech notifications, checking the local power, weather, turning
on the coffee pot from bed by setting "morning mode", etc. A full description can be found at Protowrxs.com/HA
and the online home is at house.protowrxs.com
An On Again / Off Again hobby of mine is Personal Robotics. I've dabbled with it on and off over the past 12-15 years with the most recent interest in
late 2012. There are a few of my builds on my
personal robot site here, but most of the
newer creations are hosted at Lets Make Robots, or LMR for short here:
There is some convergence with the robots and the Home Automation system with BoxHead having the ability to control some things around the house via voice commands as well.
Since my early teens I was always into scale plastic model
cars and that interest is still hiding in me. In the mid 1980's
it really peaked with our local car club members also interested
in it and we build many models. A few of the survisors can be
found in the Scale Model Section.
Cars Cars Cars...
Yet another interested of my is cars... specifically Ford cars from the 1960's on and especially especially Mustangs. It's best just to go to my personal domain
StephenNolen.net/com/org for all those details though including my
1985 SVO Mustang,
1989 Ranger 4x4, and my Son's 1995 Nissan 240sx - ALL of which were "rescue" cars brought back from the dead. There is information about my continously delayed
and sorely needed to work on 1969 Mustang there as well.
... And More
There are more hobbies as well - one was Building Chopper Bicycles for a while which was fun while it lasted.
