By not being on social media sites, I have a choice in what I consume from a news perspective. I want sources that give me the data so I can form my own opinion, rather than get opinions that are framed as news. So this is what works for me… Use a web browser “incognito” mode so tracking cookies aren’t […]

I couldn’t agree more about how to take control of your digital consumption from, “The Center for Humane Technology”. Here’s the link and a snippet from the web site: https://www.humanetech.com/take-control
I thought I understood the general concepts and algorithms that companies like google, Facebook, twitter, etc. use but I was astounded about how much it impacts us as a society. The documentary, “The Social Dilemma”, on Netflix, is filled with conversations with many of the original architects of these systems and how monetization though ad targeting is driving behavior modification […]
Good Morning!After not being active on Facebook for almost a year now I made the move to completely delete my account. While it was surprisingly tough initially it was a great decision. I realized all the ads and shaped content was not worth the family and friend connection I was actually seeking. My account on Instagram will probably be deleted […]
Local System – Let’s call it alphaRemote System we don’t want to have to enter passwords for,Let’s call it foxtrot Prep: Harden your existing ssh keys since RSA 1024 sucks.

Since I had a old windows laptop as a plex and file server for years I thought it would be good to try something new. After researching options I ddecided to try FreeNAS. Since it has ZFS and I’m an old Sun guy – why not. Well…. After a few weeks I decided to abandon FreeNAS and roll my own […]
I’ll review my experience with this SoC shortly…
So I ran into a few issues using the dd image backup I referenced prior Raspberry Pi 3 SDCard backup The Image is very large even though the data was not. For example on a 32GB SD card I was getting a 12GB file. I only have 3GB of data! so that was a bummer. When it comes time to recover, […]

This feels a little weird! Playing with the overclocking and it really makes a difference! The settings below look stable but make the proc very hot (over 85 degrees c.) From /boot/config.txt: # Overclock settings – disabled until heat sink is added. 170327 SeanK #arm_freq=1350 #core_freq=500 #over_voltage=4 #disable_splash=1 ##force_turbo=1 #boot_delay=1 #sdram_freq=500 Also created a script to put the governor in […]

This is Greg picking up a friend at the airport last weekend. He looks like Jamie Hyneman from the mythbusters. The person laughing in the background is the cop Greg got to shoot the video.
Warning: Nerd Content ahead! Since I work helping companies manage their enterprise storage environment, I tend to be very anal with storing my own data at home. It needs to be resilient, redundant, and fast. Why? I’m retarded. Most of the time this means I end up spending more than enough money with something I have to constantly manage and […]
From a recent email spam – that was sorta funny… Scenario 1: Jack goes quail hunting before school and then pulls into the school parking lot with his shotgun in his truck’s gun rack. 1957 – Vice Principal comes over, looks at Jack’s shotgun, goes to his car and gets his new shotgun to show Jack. 2009 – School goes […]

Unlike most apps that will provide a proxy web service to your computer through your iPhone PDAnet will provide a complete network solution for tethering your computer. Basically, you can use your iPhone as a computer wifi device, without restriction. While proxy apps will work well for web applications, it doesn’t work for stuff like email, ftp, ssh, etc. PDAnet […]
