• Adventures!? With Text!?
    They’re more likely than you think… Throughout the pandemic (which is still going on, I guess) I’ve repeatedly switched between working a number of personal creative projects. Some get closer to being done while others remain in a perpetual state of “I’m…
  • Keep Seeding
    Torrents are great. I love those little files and how they facilitate peer-to-peer file sharing so I can download even more files. Files! When I’m downloading an ISO to set up a VM or distrohop (no longer applicable), I’ll pretty much always…
  • Toxitolerant – Demo 2022
    It’s been a while since Toxitolerant has released a demo. We released our first one back in September 2020 with the assumption that the pandemic would be over soon-ish and we could use it to promote ourselves a bit. Well, the pandemic…
  • Home Server With Cockpit
    This year’s tax refunds finally gave me the opportunity to buy a high(er-ish) end gaming PC. For the past few years, I’ve been using refurbished workstations, since they usually have decent processors; after adding some more RAM and an alright graphics card,…
  • Toxitolerant – Demo 2020
    It’s been nearly five years since we first stepped into that cramped garage to play our first set as an exhibit in a local art show, and thinking about those early days filled with insane stories (which I could probably write a…
  • Anonymous Blogging on Reclaim Cloud
    Working with Reclaim Cloud has been amazing, and I’m not just saying that because I work for Reclaim Hosting; the Jelastic platform Reclaim Cloud is built on has opened up a new world for hosting with almost endless possibilities. It’s containers all…
  • Setting up Jitsi Meet
    In my last post I went on about watching anime and installing Mattermost on a VPS to play DnD with my friends on, but I had a realization: it’s going to take a lot to coordinate my group of friends long enough…
  • Quarantine & DnD
    Quarantine life has been weird, but it’s not like I ever went outside to begin with. Besides going to work and the occasional band practice for my new band (more info on that, and hopefully a demo too, coming soon), I’ve been…
  • Dungeons and Debugging
    There were three things I used python for when I first started learning it back in High School. First, was doing my math homework. It wasn’t hard, but If I could make it easier, why wouldn’t I? I also learned a bit…
  • Scripting and Scraping
    When I joined the team at Reclaim Hosting doing customer support last month, one of the biggest issues we were (and still are) facing was high server loads and the resulting downtime. Being the aspiring Linux administration nerd I am, I got…
  • VHSkumboyz
    Besides the retro-future aesthetic, one of the major reasons I did the little Raspberry Pi/TV project, as described in this post, was for VHS tapes. Not only can I now rescue the few that are still packed away in storage, but I…
  • CR(aspberry Pi)T
    So the other day I remembered the location of an old TV/VCR combo, and I my first thought was how can I hook a Raspberry Pi up to this? I lugged it off to my desk, and after realizing how large (and…
