Happy Thanksgiving and the key to understanding

I’ve spend the last six months getting deeply into programming again and over and over I find that I learn differently than the way most tutorials take you. So here’s a quick list of new things I’ve learned and the fundamental idea that (at least of me cracked the nut) where there are usual one […]

Amazon COPPA and affiliates ugh

Well if you missed the notification, there is something called COPPA where Amazon has to certify it doesn’t advertise to sites that market to kids under 13. If you didn’t fill out the form by October 31, they close your affiliate account and invalidate all your tags. How nice legal things are.   Oh well, […]

Outfitting a Honda Fit (no pun intended)

Well, a Honda Fit is an incredibly practical car. You can buy expensive accessories, but the after market is terrific: Floor mats. Rather than the factory ones, from Auto Anything, you can get custom fit nearly impervious ones for $99 less 6% off in a cilck through rebate and Retailmenot has a 15% off coupon. […]

What did was to delete and reinstall and then it seemed to work after a reboot. I don’t know […]

42 things you get for free with Amazon if you are up early

Haskell micro-ATX build will not fit a Prolima Genesis nor a Scythe but Noctua NH-12L works well.

Gosh what a pain, last year we were building very fast Haswell systems in micro-ITX. We could get two dual slot graphics cards in there and it sounded like a freight train, but could get overclocking to 4.5GHz or so with the Noctua NH-12L which is low profile with great clearance underneath. One fascinating thing […]
