Just finished (yet another time) a fantastic adventure (talking computer game here).
I recently bought the remastered version of the old LucasArts classic Grim Fandango in a Humble Mobile Bundle and yes, I still love it :)
I recently finished the first steps of my little Arduino-Raspberry-Dart project called RaspuinoDart. Once I added the data-base backend it will appear on Github and more features will appear slowly after (hopefully).
Getting ready for Erik’s Pirate Party next week …
here’s some of the props I made for the obligatory treasure hunt.
Seem familiar? Yes, you’re right … Threepwood et al.
Let’s see how the kids (who won’t recognise anything) like it …
As a follow up to my recent and voluntary change from a hard disk drive to a solid state disk in my MacBook, I just had to do the same for my iMac. Unfortunately, this time it wasn’t voluntary and slightly more complicated. That’s at least what I thought beforehand. Turns out … despite the fact that one has to take out the screen and ideally put in a new temperature sensor, it’s actually quite simple and done in less than 30 minutes. Which is in fact much less time than it took to restore the disk image on the new drive (several hours via USB). Anyways, up to now everything appears to be stable and even a bit faster than before … I’m starting to get the hang of taking apart Apple products ;)
Already since couple of days, you (hopefully) enjoy my web site via HTTPS instead of HTTP.
Thanks to the letsencrypt.org initiative, which started it’s public beta yesterday, it is now quite easy and in fact free to get a backed server certificate. So, enjoy the fact that your passwords are a bit more secure now ;)
