• Cat Cam Upgrade

    I spent some time and figured out how to stream video from my Raspberry Pi to Ustream. So, starting now, the Cat Cam has actual video instead of stills that get reloaded in the background. It’s a slow frame rate, but FAR better than the previous configuration. Yay technology!

  • Cat Cam Setup & Info

    I wanted to talk a bit about the webcam that I set up, since it’s far from typical. These days, I imagine most people experience webcams through cameras physically installed into the computer, monitor or phone they’re sitting in front of (if you can consider a phone camera a “webcam”). I’ve owned a few external […]

  • The Great RSS Migration

    I’m getting ready to get a new iMac. This will be an upgrade to my “primary host” which is currently an older Macbook Pro (though not so old as to not be an aluminum unibody). I expect that the laptop could die virtually any day and I’m trying to be prepared. My normal routine is […]

  • I own these!

    Last weekend, Profiles in History hosted an online auction with a large set (500 separate lots) of original animation art from the Marvel Animated Series broadcast on Fox in the 1990′s. The most popular show in the block, by far, was X-Men. As a huge fan and a consummate geek, I knew I needed to […]

  • Galleries Are Fixed Now — NextGEN Gallery Not Displaying Thickbox Images

    After laying down for bed, I had an epiphany last night and got up and based away at the keyboard for a bit. Luckily, the effort wasn’t wasted, as I was able to fix the issue that caused the problem in the first place. The long story boiled down is that the ThickBox can find […]

  • Technology is Awesome

    I’m flying BOS to PDX via Alaskan and they have wi-fi on the flight. This is the first time I’ve been able to partake in in-flight internet and it’s simply awesome. The only said thing is that they don’t have power – so when my battery dies, that’s that. I’ve dialed down as much as […]

  • Traveling With The iPhone

    I have to say, traveling with an iPhone is pretty damn awesome. There’s very little that I couldn’t do with an iPhone that I do on my laptop. If I was so inclined, I could make this post with my iPhone, but I just happen to be on my laptop and it’s that much faster […]

  • WP via iPhone

    I just downloaded a wordpress app for the iPhone and seeing how well it works. So far, it’s pretty slick. Later, if this goes smoothly, I’ll figure out how it works with images. Definitely neat!

  • Feedback For Apple

    I bought an iPhone last night. I have no complaints about the device thus far — I’m rather happy. More on that later. I was asked to take a survey in my email this morning. Surprising for only being awake 15 minutes, I felt like contributing. Click for a larger image. Seriously, this is one […]

  • Let’s Compile Some win32 Binaries

    Many people that read this probably know that I do tech work/support for BME from time to time. Starting at 1900 on 20091101, the community site IAM kinda went haywire. What’s somewhat unique about IAM is that it leverages native win32 binaries on the server side. They’re not scripts that a JIT compiler reads or […]
