A couple of DIY projects on LifeHacker...
There are not enough hours in the day for all these little things I think would be fun to do.

DIY Gas Mask

For preppers or the "Occupy" crowd, a DIY Gas Mask. I guess it is really just for the "Occupy crowd/regular people."
"With Occupy protests around the country, things are heating up. With disbursement of tear gas an pepper spray by police, how are regular people able to keep safe?"

I missed the FIXIT Clinic

FIXIT Clinic:
"17th Street Studios, located at 1642 Highland Ave., is offering a free FIXIT Clinic at 6pm, tomorrow, Wednesday, September 14. All you have to do is bring one item that is broken (this can be ANYTHING that is broken) and we will provide as many tools and helpers to help you fix it."
I wish I had the free time to go to this. I have plenty of broken stuff and I'm sure I could have learned something.

Heathkit Coming Back to Amateur Radio

Heathkit's Amateur Radio Plans Taking Shape:
"We are working on developing a few Amateur Radio kits. Initially, the kit line will include a few ‘accessories’ like kits for a Dual Watt Meter, Antenna Tuners and the Cantenna. Once we are a little more ‘settled’ I think we will develop a QRP receiver. We won’t rush to market just to get there. We want to develop a line of kits in the tradition of Heathkit. I’m hoping to have one-two kits by the end-of-the-year.”
Lots of love for Heathkit in the ham community. The key is that they don't rush just because they think they can make a buck on the name.
