Computer World

Welcome to Computer World, the section of my website where I post information and photos of my various computer based projects. This site is currently aimed mostly at hardware and general computing advice, but in the future I hope to have a software section where you can download programs that I've written. Until then, check out The Arcade for some of my graphical demos.

My Computers


An all purpose FTP, web, NFS, and Samba server and router with dual redundant hard discs. Built from random parts and runs FreeBSD. Check out the cool "vintage" case.

Reven LXIV

I built this monstrosity in 2010 and it's held up well, with a Windows Experience Index of 7.0. It's mainly a workstation, it has peripherals for everything, and it weighs a ton.

I usually have a terminal window open somewhere, since sometimes it's just easier to do things that way. Here's a list of the most common commands for both Windows and Unix.

Recommended Software

I have really high standards for software, and little patience for downloading tons of software just to try it out. Hopefully this will help you out, these are the ones I think are the best.

Pictures and a simple explanation of an engine control module.
