Tivo Bolt, my response

TL;DR I’m a big fan of Tivo but sadly the service provided is outdated and too expensive. I was one of those extreme loyal followers of Tivo in the past. I had 2 Tivo boxes and I carried one of them with me on trips   It was so easy to bring one with me to watch the backlog of shows and leave the other one at home to keep recording local programming. Plus, at home, that’s how I got my 4 tuners years before there was a box that could do that. Sadly, I still love Tivo’s UI and ease of use but I think it’s way too expensive […]

Deployed my own simple React project to Surge.

Really stoked, just thought I’d write a short blurb because my challenge this week for myself was to deploy this small project I did in React JS to the web.  I have been working with webpack but never had the need to publish before and was not sure how to manipulate the code to 1. Create a bundle.js for me, and 2. Have it where it needs to be in order to work when deployed. A little background on the project, it was to create a responsive front end design in React where I brought in LESS for styling and choose a slider of choice for the top header slider. […]

Guy who steals packages in our neighborhood

getKuna Security Light may not be worth it

I tried to submit this review from their email they sent me but their site is having xml / xslt errors :p I’ll post it here, I think the public will appreciate it. There’s a TL;DR area at the bottom but it’s worth reading if you’re trying to decide on purchase: I spend a lot of time talking to customer support through email, especially Christopher about some real shortcomings in the system and policy as far as the Kuna goes. I purchased this to be a real dependable security solution yet I am always left to wonder if it’s really working and if I can really rely on it. The […]

My Response to the Peter Liang No Jail Ruling

Let’s be real here, he did kill someone and that’s just the sad truth of it all, but he was also a new police officer who I would like to think got into the job for the right reasons. I don’t know him personally but I would like to think he genuinely wanted to help people. For his want of helping people, and a tragic accident, he lost his career, has to live with the memory that he was the cause of ending a life, and has now lost his former friends on the force (if they were ever his friends to begin with for hanging him out to dry) […]

Successful Akamai Purge

New Years Success

Just a short post because I am excited for all the challenges coming in this year.  I was able to write a script in Node.js for use in purging Akamai files. Long story short, my company set a long TTL on files on a certain directory and I needed a way to get my files updated. I created the working purger yesterday but today I wanted to make it more dynamic. It will now ask you on the command line what file you want to purge and then do it once you hit enter.  No more changing the url in the javascript file itself. Stoked, and glad it works.

Pre-New Year Excitement!

What a year it’s been. Just about a year ago, December 24th, 2014, I got my first job back in the computer field after deciding that the medical field was no longer for me.  Not to dwell on the past any longer than I have to, but I was held back from my original intentions of being a doctor all those years ago because of not being able to pass all the board exams. Even after I received my degree and finished my education and all that was expected of me. I was down an depressed for so long. I even entered the medical imaging field thinking I should just […]
