Whole new outlook!

Well it has been over 2 years since I have posted here last.  A lot of things have happened and first let me say we have moved from California now out to Tennessee.  I work for a new company and still am programming and building things.  We bought a house and I have been working on losing some weight so I might be able to stay with  my family a bit longer.  I will be updating my site here to be more clean and fresh.  I will be updating my other sites: http://eve-tools.net and http://www.whistle-britches.com to reflect a new look and what is going on.

I am starting to see that the way things had been going I never followed through with it but that is a thing of the past.  I am working on getting my side business running again (That is Whistle-Britches Technologies) and Finally Open source my Eve-Online Tools.  Please check back as I will also be posting about projects I am working on around the house and things I am building.  Sorry it has been so long but I will be sure to post something once a week or sooner based on what I am doing.

Before I go though you can see me stream games, programming, or hobbies on my twitch account http://twitch.tv/devilen84

The last update have showed you the first version of the desk that I wanted to create. I have made other version since that time and currently have settled on the newest version. Below is the new version that I have decided to build and am working on putting together.  It looks a lot like the same but there are some changes and still I am working on making changes to the desk still so that I can make sure that its something I want and will be very happy with it.

This is the 2nd version of my desk.

New Desk Phase 1

Well I first want to say I have a computer desk that is about 7 years old but it is no longer working for me so I am going to be building my own desk.  I am going to make a very nice Wooden desk that will hold up 3 28 inch Monitors along with not needing to have a computer case any more.  The first phase of my computer Desk is just in the planning Phase of the build.  First draft of the desk I was making looks little overkill but I am still working on it and trying to get things managed properly.

The Little Router that Couldn’t

Well as my site shows I have been pretty busy with the lack of postings that have been on it. Also you can see I am into many different things to do with technology. One thing that I have been wanting to do for some time now is have a proper network Firewall/Router to block my home computers from the outside world. My current little router D-Link DIR-857 this guy is a champ but the memory keeps getting filled up because so many devices and or people connecting to my network have caused me to have to reboot it daily just to flush the memory and have no network speed loss.

Which brings me to the new router the custom built Mini-ITX i5 CPU based system. Sure some of you are I am sure thinking wait that is overkill for just a router! While I agree with you this is but I am not just using it as a router. I’m also using it to run ESXi and host some game servers that me and friend play quite often.  Here is a list of everything that is in the build for the router.

New Year and Lack of posts

Well it is 2015 already and I still have not had time to post things on here like I wanted too. I have made sure that I keep things going around my house and I will be posting about my new router for my house I am building to replace our old D-Link Media router that just is unable to keep up with so much traffic that is going through it these days.

I will be sure to post up everything that is going on with this project and moving forward any other big projects I have and some small things. Right now I have changed jobs and am trying to get use to the new schedule but I think I will have more time to update and give more updates and projects on here so thank you for coming to my website and I hope to see more people and news updates on here.

Long time No update

Well it has been quite a long time since my last update and post. Well lets see what has changed since my posting. My son and daughter both are now a year older and getting into more things. My new job has been a big blessing in my life to give me the ability to spend more time with my kids and family. I have had the opportunity to spend time with friends and get to know my neighbors more and work on side projects which I hope to get posted up here soon.

I will be trying once again to get something posted once a week about something going on and something that is interesting and programming. One big thing that I am working on is Game server hosting and VPS hosting so more information about that soon. Till my next post have a good one!

Old New Dresser

Well over the past few weeks I have been working on a new project.  My son’s dresser that is new to him but is a hand me down from his TeeTee.  The dresser is a nice solid wood dresser that she had which was also given to her by her mother.  So I started first by deciding on what color to paint the dresser and we decided white but my son picked the color of Polar Bear White.  Next we picked the handles my son picked them of a nice electric blue which match very nicely with the Polar Bear White.

here are a few pictures of the dresser before the transformation from old to new.

Welcome 2014

Well last post I made was about my daughter being born in October and here it is now almost the end of January and still no new posts.  I would first like to say sorry but as most people know having a new baby makes for many tired nights and busy days.  Also with a new job it makes things that much harder!  I wanted to come here and give an update on a few things that I have going on.

First I would like to say my new job is Awesome I love working for this company and I have learned so much in the short time I have been here.  Who knew that 7 months could feel only like 7 days?  Sense starting here I have actually gotten better at programming and came to understand that if I am creating something for others to consume and use I need to make sure that it’s created with standards and not half done.

With that said I have been working on a previous application that I have called Destruct-Ore it is a Eve-Online web based tool that I am hoping to have released with the new interface and feel in the next 3 – 6 weeks, but I am going to need help with it.  I am looking for people who want to join me on this and are willing to take instruction and direction on this project to help complete it and make it something great that everyone could use.

Next thing is I found a really cool new game called Starbound and my friends, brother, and I are going to do some Lets plays on this.  We are going to do this in a form of role playing where one is the captain and we all share one ship and are trying to survive in this universe.  I know it is been done before but hey its a cool idea and sounds fun what possibly could go wrong you know?

Last but not least I have a starbound site that is dedicated to helping you find stuff on the maps and mapping out locations to were things are in the game but because it is based off a Seed model it wont always be 100% accurate but we have the ability to add what the Seed it was found in and more features will be added to that site in time.  The site is located at http://starbound.scireportals.net
