It doesn’t exist. With that out of the way, here’s a bit of a link dump of how I’ve come about as close as I can. I don’t like DVDs or VHS or Blu-Ray. It’s cumbersome, it’s fragile, it’s outdated. I don’t like being a slave to TV listings. I’d rather watch TV or MoviesContinue reading “What is the perfect HTPC setup for a cord cutter?”
I should stop reading Reddit when I’ve got some time to kill. It ends up eating into time I don’t have to kill. http://www.reddit.com/r/Roku/comments/1b9uuv/stream_desktop_to_roku/c95f2nl HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) looks pretty easy to do with VLC. http://wiki.videolan.org/Documentation:Streaming_HowTo/Streaming_for_the_iPhone It requires having a local web server. xampp is my favorite way to install apache on windows.

I’ve never wanted to embed a tablet in my dash more than I do right now. While browsing reddit a couple days ago, I came across this post about using a USB webcam with an OTG adapter. Which lead me to this page about Nexus 7 webcam. I am a huge fan of Torque OBDIIContinue reading “Nexus 7 USB Webcam with Torque Track Recorder”
The Ripinator!!! Motivation: My fiance and I have a stack of DVDs. They’re dusty and inconvenient. I wanted to rip them to my network storage so I can easily watch them from my Boxee Box. It’s not that I’m lazy, but I hate doing repetative things if I can automate it. Overview: I’m using PerlContinue reading “The RIPINATOR – Semi-automated DVD Ripping”
I’m sure many people have many solutions to managing the version of Java installed on their workstations, but this is the one I liked. I’m keeping these notes mostly for my own benefit. http://www.itninja.com/question/silent-uninstall-java-all-versions The post almost to the bottom by SpellJammer | 02/28/2012 | is pretty awesome.
I recently made my first PCB with toner transfer using an iron. It was pretty ugly. I bought a cheap-o laminator from walmart for $25 + tax. It’s a Scotch TL901. I used masking tape to hold things in place. It worked well enough that I’m not going to complain. I never realized what aContinue reading “Toner Transfer on the Cheap”
First things first, a picture demonstrating success. And a video! Next, a link to the resources I needed http://www.ragingcomputer.com/2012/04/arduino-shield-etching-thoughts After that, pictures. Lots of pictures.
I’ve kept a list of links I found very helpful lately. While I’m no stranger to a soldering iron and I know how to use perfboard, I have never etched a PCB before and I’ve never designed a PCB. I don’t think I would have had much luck at all without the following sites. IContinue reading “Arduino Shield Etching Thoughts”
I’m having some sort of issue with this. The servo is twitchy. Using https://github.com/shirriff/Arduino-IRremote and http://arduino.cc/en/Reference/Servo It twitches just by having both enabled. I’ve included the code I used for the first part of the video. If you know why this is happening, I’d love to hear it.
When I rebuilt the cat laser after the hail storm, I bought a 650nm 5mW laser module.3.2V 12x30mm on eBay from AixiZ Service and International LLC. Shipping speed was great. I would definitely recommend buying from them. Fast forward a couple months, I broke off a wire from the laser module. This was my ownContinue reading “Fixing Laser Module”
