Flora is the name given to Adafruit’s “wearable” microcontroller. What it really means is that it has some large holes that can be used for sewing to clothing and such. Adafruit provides a number of lessons, one of which introduces you to this tech. https://learn.adafruit.com/getting-started-with-flora If you are already familiar with Arduino or similar, you…Details
SketchUp is what I have been terming the “Programmer’s Maya”. But I just came across a modeling program that truly deserves that title – OpenSCAD. OpenSCAD is pretty much only useful for 3D prints – you would not want to use it for modeling a room, for example. It works well for objects that can…Details
Just purchased an HP 7612. Even though I had the IP address of the printer and Windows looked like it installed it properly, every time I printed, I received a notice about the printer being offline. After going into the Control Panel and fidgeting with the installation, I finally came across an article that pointed…Details
Came across a good walkthrough explaining how to apply a gradient across multiple objects as one or within individual objects.
In short, a “group” applies to individual objects and a “compound path” applies across all objects as one.
Came across some tutorials that cover how to create a dilapidated building with Photoshop:
I originally purchased an SNES controller manufactured by 8BitDo: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00Y0LUQFE Unfortunately, the bluetooth function was not reliable and kept kicking out after 20-30 seconds. As a result of this failure, I tried out a PS3 bluetooth controller. Followed along with this tutorial: https://github.com/retropie/retropie-setup/wiki/Setting-up-a-PS3-controller It mostly worked. Whatever you do, do not follow along with…Details
As an avid Nintendo collector and a person with a recent interest in electronics like Arduino, it made sense to contribute to building a custom Classic NES since they were all sold out this past holiday season. I want to note a couple written tutorials that helped make this happen: https://supernintendopi.wordpress.com/2013/01/23/an-a-to-z-beginners-guide-to-installing-retropie-on-a-raspberry-pi/: This tutorial is…Details
Search for this error with regards to WordPress and you will find lots of articles talking about how the wp-config.php has bad credentials. Funny thing is, I came across this error and credentials were not the problem. Here’s how I fixed it. My site is on a remote server. I normally create a database, give…Details
cPanel has a bunch of options to setup mail, but what it seems to really be doing is changing the zone file associated with the given domain. At that point, I am finding it less confusing to just edit the zone file directly. For email, the following must be in a domain’s zone file: MX…Details
Because GoDaddy does not use SSD and has restrictions on database access, I am looking at transferring from them. Rather than only having review sites, I came across a useful utility that performs comparisons on three categories: Help & Support Speed & Reliability Price & Value It’s a ridiculous domain name, but seems to be…Details
