    Homemade Wi-Fi gun

    @Davidc might be interested in this for some major stretching between farms. Pretty cool especially if you need to reach another building far away.

    People using you because of your knowledge

    I am sure that we have complained about this before, but will it ever end for me? I haven't worked in the computer industry for over a year now. It is nice just being able to do my own thing and not have to worry about it. But I will tell you a story and it makes me angry, yet I have to deal...

    DDOS attack on America

    Computer component prices these days

    So my parents old desktop that I built them is getting quite old in terms of components. So I have some old parts available. The only thing missing is some DDR3 memory. I came in and popped on Newegg/Amazon to see how much some would be. Geez stuff is so dirt cheap anymore. I might as well buy a...

    Apple and Macs

    I know @C Pav thought I was joking the other day when he was talking about getting a new computer and I recommended a Macbook Pro. My computing taste have really changed lately. Maybe I am just getting old, but I'm not into tweaking etc. anymore. I just like something stable and simple. Not...

    Ufo detector software

    Ran across this software tonight. It is being developed to detect Ufos using software that works with different cameras. It can detect false positive such as birds and planes. Looks fairly straight forward and can even use your webcam. I think it's fairly new software but the developer seems to...

    Anyone here still using dropbox? If you aren't it's a pretty slick backup and I suggest you sign up (2GB of free storage). Currently if you are using this you can boost your storage by testing their beta and auto importing photos/videos, up to 5GB more free!! I did this myself yesterday. I...
