So. I have a small off-grid (for power) garden shed at a property about 600 feet from my house. I decided a couple of years ago to cut the utility power to it and make a full solar setup. I started with a pair of Kyocera KC120-1 panels, and then the following year, doubled it to 4 panels. At the end of last summer, I realized that my output was half of what it was after I added the second set of panels, and didn’t worry about it. Today it was 72 degrees out, and I decided to investigate.
In my last update post I said I’d be going over how to build your own 10 gigabit network in your home. I did a Point-to-Point connection between my desktop and file server (on the cheap), but you can use this same information to build your own networks!
Just basically checking in.
Life has been fairly hectic for the last month or so. I haven’t been able to work on any of my projects at all.
I have decided that my next project will be a tablet computer that is based off of a Raspberry Pi2. I was looking at using a Raspberry Pi Zero, however I’m thinking that the 512MB of RAM vs the 1GB would be a big hit to the performance for what I’m trying to do..
Hell, who knows… I might scrap the idea and build one based on the Orange Pi 2!
My weekend in Portland started off a bit bumpy. My father and I had to rush to get our bags checked in time for the flight. Once we had our bags checked, we headed towards the gate.
So, I know that we’ve all gotten those campaign calls for raising money or supporting a politician. Recently, I’ve noticed a lot of calls coming into my phone system from 855-696-2074. A quick google search shows that this is a Ben Carson fund raising phone number… with actual people on the other end!
Of course… I have to have fun with this.
I have just returned from St. Louis, where I was lucky enough to be named the Godfather for my first, and thus far only nephew. The trip is about 6 hours each way, and although I was there for less than 24 hours, it was worth the Trip.
So… I’m drunk, my spelling and grammar will probably tip you all off to that.
I’m part of a bowling league, we bowl on Thursdays. Tonight being Thursday, I proceed to get drunk off of my ass… and of course, what do I do? Blog post… obviously.
Well, here it is, 2:30AM, and I just crawled into bed after an overnight downtime at work. I’ve been working to move over T1 circuits from a DS3 to a Netvana 8044 pseudowire connection, and it’s been a disaster the entire way.
