Hello. My name is Dylan, also known as Slgrandson on select MediaWiki sites, and by my initials at IMDb and elsewhere. I am 26 years of age, and now live in Waterbury, Connecticut. I used to live near my home suburb of Stock Farm located in Roseau, the Commonwealth of Dominica, with my two sisters, a granny and a great-grandma, as well as my daddy, and edited for almost three months in the Bronx of New York City.

I am named after my family relation, a contraction of the phrase "Sylvie Lewis' grandson" (the first two letters are her initials). I am among only a handful of Wikipedia members to come out of Dominica, out of a few dozen more from the Caribbean region.

Though I've taken to articles on obscure topics when I can, I'm not quite here often anymore. As you can see from the infobox I've just added, I've gotten into the PD reprint business lately. Which partly explains my recent ongoing lack of activity on WP...and the way my edit total has flourished on Wikisource.

At this writing, three books of poetry await the Amazon kiosks: one by William Wordsworth, another by Edmund Clarence Stedman, and the third (The Wonderful Fairies of the Sun) by Gadsby author Ernest Vincent Wright.

Geneva drive

The Geneva drive is a gear mechanism that translates a continuous rotation into an intermittent rotary motion. The rotating drive wheel has a pin that reaches into a slot of the driven wheel advancing it by one step. The drive wheel also has a raised circular blocking disc that locks the driven wheel in position between steps. Such a mechanism is used in film projectors, watches, and indexing tables, among others.
