Fix It: Cheap Computer Feet

For a while now, many of the little rubber feet on the bottom of my laptop have been missing. I've tried replacing them with custom-cut foam glued in place, but those came off after some time as well. And they were annoying to make.

LTSpice Nit-Picking

I have to admit: this is incredibly nit-picky of me, but it absolutely bothers me every time I open LTSpice that I find a gray background!

However, I spend my time between three different operating systems: Windows 7, Ubuntu, and Xubuntu (for now). I install LTSpice under wine and it works great. But if its a re-install or I update the version, I am pulled back to those ugly default colors. So I decided to find the configuration file for LTSpice so I can set my colors once and keep it that way. Forever.

No longer...

RPi Web: First Post

I've actually been working for several weeks on setting up a Raspberry Pi to serve a simple website from home. I haven't posted anything on it yet, probably because I always falsely assume my blog posts must be extravagant. Well, I don't have time for extravagance, so I'm keeping it simple here.
