» XOD - GUI microcontroller programming. Kinda neat, I like the idea behind it/     #

» MandOS, let's you boot remote servers even when they have an encrypted boot drive. Looks like a "mothership server" that tells the booting machine what the encryption keys are so it can boot without having to use a serial console.     #


» Missouri Lakes and Fancy Lakes Loop Trail. Absolutely NOT 8.3 miles like this claimed (closer to 10.5 total) but a great overnight backpack. I did it clockwise (Missouri Lakes first) and was happy to stop at Fancy Lake, I was wiped. Chai, on the other hand, was still up for chasing some chipmunks once we got to the lake...     #


» Split a Garmin GPX file. The Garmin online maps suck, you can't select to download individual GPS tracks that have been uploaded, you get a giant file with EVERY track included. Not only does the site work great, they even give you the perl script to run it yourself.     #

» Why a Typical Home Solar Setup Does Not Work With the Grid Down - And What You Can Do About It. This is really long and absolutely worth reading, I learned a ton (and I'm one of those people with grid-tied rooftop solar...)     #


» Thinkpad Motherboards. Update some classic Thinkpad chassis with a new motherboard that has all kinds of updated stuff (support for new processors, etc). Some people really value those older screens and keyboards, this lets you turn it into something modern.     #

» TLP – Linux Advanced Power Management     #


» Access Termux via USB. That's really neat.     #


» Tools to tweak Windows 10 Privacy settings and fix privacy issues. Just the fact these have to exist says a lot about the crap that is Win10.     #

» GPU Database. Good for comparisons if you are in the market for a new video card.     #


» Arduino Dali Clock, now with Neon 80s Cyber Styling. That's pretty awesome.     #

» XANDEM Home Review - Is This Future of Home Security? I like the idea but having a dog kind of makes this sort of automation a non-starter (she'd trip the sensors constantly...) If you are interested, instead of under some heading that makes sense the purchase option is under the Xandem "Product" heading on the website.     #


» Melatonin: Much More Than You Wanted To Know. That's pretty interesting to me, I take melatonin sometimes (but never at 5pm like this says). And the tablets from Costco are 3mg, time to split them up, I think I'm going to try and quarter them.     #

» Can a Raspberry Pi be used to create a backup of itself? I've switched my main system over to DietPi which includes a backup tool, but this is still interesting.     #


» JeffCo Assessor Property Records Search. There's so many homes for sale in my neighborhood and you can find the history for each here, love having this kind of information available.     #


» Sorter is a webapp to organize ideas, tasks and information using bullet points and hashtags. Kind of an outliner but mixed with the idea of personal productivity...     #


» Masterclass – Tcpdump – Interpreting Output. I don't always need it but when I do it's invaluable.     #


» Email Self-Defense, using PGP encryption to protect your email.     #


» youtube_channel_archiver. Interesting.     #


» Video Hub App. Think of it as "YouTube for your local computer". It'll scan a directory you choose and build thumbnails and such and present it in a nice interface.     #

» 11 Places to SUP Within an Hour Drive of Denver. I wish they'd have included where I can take my dog with me on the board, I only know of one place (and it's in Longmont.)     #

» OWSOO 801 1080p WiFi IP Camera. I have a couple cameras outside (which aren't meant to be outdoor cameras) but as long as they stay under the eaves of the house they do ok. Someday though they will stop working so I keep tabs on alternatives like this...     #


» Salt and Vinegar Roasted Almonds. Definitely making these.     #


» Wifi Passwords from Airports. If I was still traveling regularly I'd be allll over this...     #


» Notes on the setup of a fresh GNU Radio. I'd seen a demo video of using GNU Radio and an SDR dongle to capture the 433Mhz signal from a regular weather station and thought I might give it a go (just waiting on my dongle to show up...) Will be using these notes for sure.     #


» RasPad - RasberryPi tablet. Really decent price for a tablet and you get a real Unix environment. I'm pretty tempted to grab one of these...     #


» signal-weechat, using the Signal messenger via IRC.     #
