I'm an systems engineer, with some focus on complex systems, signal processing and a bit of control systems. My current job title is "Senior Satellite Systems Engineer". I am also a hobby photographer, and fairly avid programmer. I am the programmer of the Android app Psychic Tester, and my newest app, Ham Finder. I am also the author of the blog, The Making of a Ham, and the photographer on PearsonArtPhoto.com.

To see some of my photography, check out the following sites:

comment How can firearms be secured from children?
@Hedge: Sure, but you could place them at least somewhat differently, say, in different drawers of the same dresser, or on two different bookshelves. Even that little bit of additional protection is huge.

Thanks for the info. I was planning on talking with my kids before making the decision, but I want to know what the pros and cons each way.

I suspect that it's "Some foster kids don't get that you would have any feeling about it at all, and are just trying to be precise.", but that only helps so much... Sigh.
