Dope Ride Today

So Angie and I went on a ride and it turned into a 15 miler. Not many pics but the green belt is always nice.

Gloomy Long Beach Ride

Took a long ride today to downtown and then Marina Pacifica. Put on the hammerhead tires last nite while repairing flats. Loved the ride they gave me today. Stickin’ wit ’em!

So here’s the ride now-

Saw this wicked little guy too. Or should I say big guy?

Also caught some skaters!

Audio Recorder

So here’s a sweet audio recorder that has pass-thru, an on board mic, ext speaker posts, and other cool stuff!

I soldered the Arduino sheild myself. Lots of applications for this project. You can expand the memory, run a line in, there’s a line out. There’s two posts for speaker attachment. Plenty of outputs left to mess with. Potential music applications ( run an electric guitar thru it. Prog fx).

Chill Ride

Took another ride around the neighborhood.

A lot of water today. Just wanted to take it easy. Still looking for potential neighborhoods to live in. I like it here. It’s flat, weather is awesome, and there’s lots to do.

There’s downsides to Long Beach but trying to stay positive. Finding the right place will make the negatives… not so negative.

House Hunt!

Went on a walk today to scope neighborhoods for a potential home-buy. Beautiful day and got in some get exercise.

Took the Master Sword today!

Saw the car-boat guys at the Marine Stadium as well. These things are cool!

Then….. The usual “shifless” layabout gets the #LBPD treatment!

All in all it was a nice day! Enjoyed the awesome weather. Definitely looking to buy here!

Web Server Project

So here’s a web server. A web server is basically a server…. In this case, hand size. I soldered an Arduino sheild together, grabbed an external power supply, and programmed an Osep Arduino ( because it’s readily available at Fry’s). You can assign an IP address to this little thing and design a website on it. Nice! Here’s some photos, then a cooler idea for this guy.

So hey, a portable website! Or…. It can be used like in the movie Batman VS Superman. You can attach it to a network, then intercept and receive information from the connected network (with the right coding). This version isn’t wireless like the movie. It doesn’t receive thru induction (or thru the wires). It has to be plugged in. I’m not rich like Bruce Wayne. I’m just Eric Wayne πŸ˜‰.

What I did was make one of these, assign it an IP address, and made it a trap. My router forwards unauthorised MAC addresses to this web server. From there you can’t really go anywhere. Like a “ghost busters” trap. There are ways out.
