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.
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.
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.
Fixing up a computer from 1984 that I found at the dump.
How I wrote the best MIDI player software ever from
Calculates some of the most common equations used when
setting up radio links
A small Java program that lets you generate a custom
test pattern, complete with timer and tone
General Computing Advice
Talking about the various types of backup media, and
keeping your important data secure.
A discussion of data remanence. How to make sure that
sensitive data is
really erased from your old hard discs.
I usually have a terminal window open somewhere, since
just easier to do things that way. Here's a list of the most common
commands for both Windows and Unix.
I have really high standards for software, and little
downloading tons of software just to try it out. Hopefully this will
help you out, these are the ones I think are the best.
