We need to fix it, we need to do something!

At the time of this posting, i’m only about half-way done watching this video, but i feel that I need to post this now and share it with everyone i know. What he says sums up what is wrong with our government and makes me want to go to Capitol Hill and kick every politician […]

Deploying Windows Services from TFS

As part of our initiative to automate code deployments, we needed to move windows services from TFS to our test servers.

New Camera and weekend exploits!

A few weeks in the making

Over the last few weeks i’ve been collecting links i think are neat or interesting or adorable or funny. So some of these links aren’t even current events (in Internet terms, when yesterday’s news is already old news and no one cares anymore), but I’d still like to share them. I think here in the […]

Tupperware Computing!

A few days ago my roommate got a box of random electronic parts donated to him. Most of the stuff was junk, only good to salvage parts off of. But there were two items that we did find of interest. Two motherboards that seemed like they were still in pretty good condition. What if we […]
