• 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 decent length indecent language filled blog post about) is what makes this so…
  • 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 the way down. The first thing I started working on when we got…
  • 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 to get them all to sign up for an account on my own…
  • 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 a real homebody since graduating from Uni. Eventually, I’ll emerge as the epitome…
  • 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 of TI-BASIC to program the graphing calculators, but it couldn’t compare to python3.…
  • 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 tasked with figuring out a way to find who and/or what was causing…
  • 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 can make my own, as it has a record function. And what else…
  • 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 heavy) these small TVs were, I decided to put it on my nightstand;…
