  • Wants Not Needs

    Want a Mavic Air for landscapes. Want and sometimes need a very wide lens for inside shots.

  • Jekyll, Codeship, Rakefile, and GitHub Pages

    Yah! I figured it out. When I looked for the solution, I found many sites with the same rakefile settings but none of them really helped me to figure out what I needed to do. I had to pick parts from each site to make mine work and I had to figure out some of […]

I was starting my electronics degree and later a networking certificate with Cisco networking classes at South Piedmont Community College in North Carolina and heavy into the Amateur Radio hobby. During that time, the […]

  • Privacy And Security

Security, a sense of being comfortable, a belief that you are secure from everyone around you, knowing that your stuff is safe from the elements, or that your location is unknown to people that might […]
