The most recent post is the next post down!

I intend to use this site to document my journey down the path of nerdiness (past, present, and future). I’ve been learning over the years from various sites like what I hope this one becomes, and want to give back. I have a wide variety of topics I’d like to cover. At a minimum, posting about my activities will help me document what I learned to refer back in the future. I’ll also post about projects we do ourselves around the house instead of hiring professionals, saving big $$$$ in the process. Hope you enjoy the journey with me!

Below are some topic I plan on covering (I’ve already done something with every one of these and plan on documenting it):

  1. RTL-SDRs (receiving signals from your electric meter, ADS-B, general radio stuff)
  2. Virtual machines and my homelab setup
  3. Home automation / smart home (Home Assistant, Tasmota, Phillips Hue bulbs, automating various tasks throughout the house)
  4. My mini solar setup (2x300W panels) and not-so-mini battery backup (8x272Ah LiFePO4 batteries – should yield 7ish kWh of storage)
  5. Remote control aircraft running Arduplane with video downlink and two-way telemetry
  6. General computer stuff (building them, what I use mine for, Hyper-V)
  7. Home network (Ubiquiti setup, VLANs, wiring the house with CAT6, IP security cameras on Blue Iris)
  8. Formation of my LLC if anyone wants to hear about that
  9. The wheel options trading strategy
  10. Cryptocurrency (mining focus)
  11. SCADA (my day job)
  12. 3D printing
  13. Engine tuning (for my old WRX and new F-150)
  14. All the cool things you can do with a Raspberry pi and other SBCs
  15. Arduino/ESP32/ESP8266 automation devices
  16. My electric bikes
  17. Microsecond accurate Raspberry Pi NTP appliance using GPS pulse per second (PPS) timing signals
  18. DIY multi-zone sprinkler system install
  19. Drone survey of property
  20. Securing this WordPress site from hackers (Fail2Ban at both WordPress and system service level)
  21. Backing up WordPress sites
  22. General Linux tips/tricks
  23. VPNs (openvpn and wireguard)
