  • GW620 Serial Console

    CyrilLD over at XDA found the serial console header on the GW620! It’s the 5 contacts in a row underneath the SIM card. The center one is the TX pin. This is a 3.3v serial port, so you’ll need a level converter of some sort to connect it directly to a PC’s serial port, but […]

  • Wedding Band Workshop

    I got married on Feb 27th to my lovely wife Pixy. A few weeks before the wedding we took a wedding band workshop at Devil’s Workshop to make each other’s bands. It was absolutely amazing!

    Woot! I now have the first stage of my new computer. I’m still using some cast off/borrowed components that need to be upgraded/replaced, but at a state where I can boot it up and play! Wow is it ever fast! I can’t wait to see what it’ll be like in a few months when I’ve […]

  • Fitness

    So, I met with a personal trainer as part of my Y membership over the weekend… I’ve never worked out in a gym before, so I had absolutely no idea which machines to use, and how to use them. My trainer was most excellent! He actually designed a work out schedule for me, and then […]

  • Bluegrass stomp

    So a few co-workers and I went out on the town last night… Started at a place called Einstein’s, and ended up at the Silver Dollar. It’s been a looong time since I’ve been that drunk, and wow did I ever need it! Got completely plashtered! So smashed, in fact, that I ordered AND enjoyed […]

  • Been a while!

    Been too long since I've updated, but holy crap have I been a busy lil beaver! One of my clients moved. FunFunFun! They didn't move very far, but the new place had zero infrastructure, so we had to run net cable, install jacks at one end and the patch panel at the other. The electricians […]
