The Future of Web Based and Mobile Dive Planners

When I got certified as a scuba diver I thought it was a little weird we recorded our dives in paper logs (circa 2006) so I went searching for web-based dive logs/planners to replace it. I was disappointed in the few I saw. Then I got a smart phone (an…

Analox Nitrox Analyzer

If you, unlike me, dive Nitrox on a regular basis then you probably have a Nitrox analyzer. I don’t own one and one of the instructors I dive with is selling their Analox Nitrox Analyzer O2EII. Analox is one of the more popular brands. The O2EII is a small portable Nitrox Analyzer…

New SSD

Just installed an Intel X-25 120GB SSD (similar to the picture above) in my Dell Studio XPS 8000 desktop and it is badass! The SSD serves as my primary hard drive while my larger platter HDD serves as backup storage. I wrote about installing and benchmarking the drive at My Technology Fetish,…

Tiny boy, little boy, baby boy..

Ahh, I can’t wait for It’s Always Sunny to come back in September. The Nightman Cometh is an awesome episode and I can’t wait to see what’s up next. As of today I have resolved the claim by the Secretary of State. It turns out the mailing was just a…

Beautiful Nightmare…

Our basketball team seems to be getting better and better, for the last two weeks we’ve lost by less than 10 points each time. I’d say that’s progress compared to the prior teams where we were killed by more than 20 points! I enjoy playing but I’ve really go to…

More Technical Projects

I have more technical project’s than I can personally manage. I guess that’s the downside of never been satisfied and always wanting to learn more and push my boundaries. Right now I’ve decided I should have an installation of Ubuntu on a server. And why not? The requirements are ridiculously…

Larger Laptop HD

I need to get a larger laptop hard drive, but I’m torn between getting a drive with smaller size, 120GB, but faster at 7200 RPM. Or I get a larger drive, 250GB, but slower at 5400 RPM. The kicker is the 250GB drive is cheaper as well… Hm… So many…

Mac Mini

I’ve been thinking about getting a Mac Mini that I can hook up to my current setup and play with. I don’t need the monitor, keyboard, mouse, etc. I can just plug it into my current setup and switch my monitors back and fourth. Plus I’ve found a ton of…

CRYSIS

I was checking out Dell’s website yesterday for their high-end gaming systems and someone posted a comment that their high-end system was remarkable but couldn’t play CRYSIS fully. Apparently this game has such stringent gaming requirements that even the best of the best gaming systems can’t competely render all the…
