  • Hello (again) World

    Lots of changes to the site: I moved it from Godaddy to Amazon EC2.  For about the same price (and free for the first year!) I get a VM all to myself. I’m flipping back to WordPress from Drupal.  Drupal 7.x’s bloggy XMLRPC interface just sucks too much ass.  That means that all of the  […]

    My wife and I got tired of living in an overpriced piece of crap apt, so we’ve moved to a better one. In the process we’ve cut our rent by 1/3 and gained a dishwasher and ensuite laundry! W00t!

  • CMS Upgraded

    Ok, I think that’s it – the site should be back to normal now.If anyone notices anything that isn’t back to normal then please let me know.Also, I hope you enjoy the new theme! 🙂

  • CMS Upgrade

    I’m upgrading my CMS from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7 today. Please excuse any downtime and site-weirdness while I get things sorted in the new CMS.Users should keep all the same rights and settings (e.g. donating users will continue to be ad-free) and all the posts+comments should remain in place.

  • Drupal Update Carnage

    As some of you may have noticed Drupal took a dump when I updated it.  The site was offline for almost a day while I tried to get the errors resolved.  It only took a few hours to fix, but I’ve been insanely busy with work and life for the past few moths so it […]

    Update: The image based on V10T is almost done.  Everything is working except Wifi won’t connect.  🙁  Once I get it figured out I’ll upload the image.

  • Changed Web Hosting Provider

    Quick note – I just changed my webhost from Sunwave over to GoDaddy.  For the same price I get 30x the storage and 60x the transfer/bandwidth, plus 24/7 support!  Crazy!

    I’m in Toronto for work + visits till the 23rd, and the internet at my hotel is REALLY slow. Excuse my slow updates. 🙂

    I’ve decided to spend my tax return on a pair of new media systems and a projector. Here’s what I’m looking at so far: Projector: Epson 705HD.

  • 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! The instructor was friendly, patient, and very encouraging. She made sure we were all comfortable with what we were doing, […]
