Building a new beefy server at work, this beast has 40 cores, 128Gigs of RAM, 2 600G Hardrives in Raid 1, and is a total screamer. It would be nice to have something like this at home, ha! I have no idea what I would do with it, but it sure would be great for bragging rights, or geek points.
So I finally got a HDMI cable (Amazon got to me over night on prime, amazing..) and I hooked this puppy up. After about 15 minutes of setup and firmware updates it was ready to go. I played around with the voice search and it works really well. It seems to search YouTube and GooglePlay movies/music, I did not get an hits in Netflix.
I was given a Nexus Player this past weekend, and allthough I have not had a chance to hook it up, I do want to give my first impressions of it, mainly my only complaint and the reason I have not hooked it up.. The darn thing did not come with an HDMI cable.. D'oh! and I didn't have any spare ones laying around.. Thankfully I was able to get a 2 pack of HDMI cables from amazon.com for about $9.99 free shipping with prime. :)
Oh for years I have enjoyed using TrueCrypt to keep my sensitive data protected. I have always had a small container on DropBox with my encrypted data in it, usually ssh keys, ssl keys and other stuff I don't want just anyone getting their grubby hands on. Today I had a need to get into this file, and I did not want to dig up an unsecured version of TrueCrypt to deal with..
I like to use the pre tag in HTML from time to time, and I know the idea of having it word wrap is out of scope for this tag; Sometimes you may just want it to wordwrap anyways. So here is how I was able to make PRE
wordwrap by using some simple CSS.
Tommy Emmanuel is one of my guitar heroes.
I have yet to see him live, but hopefully someday he will play locally and I can go see him.. There are a few local music halls, so there is a good chance it will happen.
One of my favorite quotes form Andy Warhol.
Decided to work on making this a more useful site. A lot of the links still link to the Wiki, mainly because that is where the data lives. But as time goes on, I will add more features to this site, such as my password generator and other stuff. We will where this will take us. I do think eventually the Wiki may go away, and everything will be in the form of blog posts.
