I’m starting flashcard.club

Hello everyone, I’m sure there is not many of you but I had to tell someone. As of the last few days I’ve really felt the need to get involved in something that is really what I am all about. A new baby if you will, a commercial enterprise but one I own. I’ve been working full-time on Laravel projects and I want to improve my skills to really get better at it.

Exporting GnuCash Data to PowerBi

Some things are better if you do them yourself. I mainly did this project to keep a running ledger of the changes that I would need to keep track of the account balance data.

The Cheap Raspberry Pi Security Camera

One of the great things about the Raspberry Pi is the community that works to create really great projects. I have setup a Raspberry Pi B looking out my windows. It faces the front door so can see anyone coming down the street and toward the door. I had a couple cheap $2 webcams lying around so I set them up looking out the windows. The total cost of the entire setup is about $10, minus the cost of the Pi itself, I also think that the Pi is a little underpowered for the task as occasionally the thing will stop… Continue reading The Cheap Raspberry Pi Security Camera

Bukkit has been given a DMCA takedown by Wesley Wolfie. The NEXT steps.

It is currently well known that bukkit has been given a dmca request by Wesley Wolfie, but now that that has happened, we now need to rebuild! So here is whats happening, the folks over from bukkit are now working on a new modding api, called sponge! currently ‘Sponge will start with Minecraft 1.8, with Vanilla Client Support on Forge.’ Old plugins that were written on bukkit will most likely have to be removed, unless someone finds a way to make them compatible with sponge. Here is a large extract of what they plan to do. Our ultimate goal is to… Continue reading Bukkit has been given a DMCA takedown by Wesley Wolfie. The NEXT steps.
