The Pi-Top Cluster

Not too long ago I had made a post about the pi-top and a child-hood dream I had of creating a modular "testing" PC for developers. With the joy, and success I had creating the previous pi-top. I decided to buy another one, this time in black! The Idea My day, to day job(s), consist of programming in JavaScript, and C# as well as managing…

Screeps

I always have been, and I always will be an avid gamer. I've long accepted the fact it's just part of who I am. You also won't find me directly supporting too many games on my Blog. However, around the first of this year, I stumbled onto a game on the Steam platform called Screeps. The description then read, "Screeps is an open source MM…

A view through the security looking glass

I've had an interesting view of the security industry. Being a software engineer for over 20+ years in both the application and web space. I have had the pleasure of both hacking and being hacked on many occasion. I would absolutely agree with many industry professionals that security is nothing more than a cat and mouse game. I will add…

The Pi-Top, and, a dream!

Roughly a year ago. I found an interesting project on Indiegogo. Typically those that know me. Know I'm not a fan of Crowd-funding. While it's a very powerful tool. One I've tried to use myself. It's also can be very questionable if a project will deliver, or, if you are out the money you invested. Regardless, i took the chance. I investe…

Holograms?

Not too long ago, a DIY video, was going around showing how to make an amusing illusion of a hologram using your cellphone, a specialized video, and, some reflective material. In the case of the video they used old plastic cd cases (without scratches). Thankfully, i have access to a family member who has cut glass for over 30 years. So i…

Adafruit FONA 3G - Cellular Breakout

I recently purchased 2x Adafruit FONA 3G - Cellular Breakout boards. While Adafruit has had the 2g version out for awhile now. I live in a forest, in the mountains. Pretty much a death sentence terrain wise for cellular, or, wifi signals. The exception seems to be 3g. With the cellular booster i have setup, i tend to get a pretty stable 3…

MobBob v2.5

Since my 3d modeling skills are not exactly "amazing". Yet... I often find myself searching Thingiverse. Recently, i ran into a little 3d printable Robot. While there a few of these on Thingiverse. This one got my attention because it's primary computing source was a Nexus 5. Which, happens to be my phone. The robot was called MobBob, and…

Orion DELTA 3d Printer

In 2013, i purchased an Orion DELTA 3d Printer. I justified the printer to myself because my materials construction skills are non-existent. I'm writing about it now. Because of the quality of the product it's self. This printer with very little maintenance has lasted me 3 years. The only thing I've had to do is grease the rails, and, re-…

I have setup a new blog. For reference for those that might not of seen the old one. It was using Wordpress, at, wordpress.com. The new blog is hosted by Microsoft Azure, protected by Cloudflare, and, powered by Ghost, Node.js, and, SQLite3. I had to bring all the previous posts, images, and, videos over manually. Some of them where clean…

Windows Compatibility Information Leak?

Found something interesting today. Inside of Windows Registry, Microsoft, will keep a copy of all applications that require compatibility settings. While this is obviously a requirement (has to be stored somewhere). It looks like windows does not actually purge this information. At all… In fact, it may even create duplicate entries for va…
