A new server!

June 12, 2016, 1:30 am

If you're reading this, that means that my port of the server away from the more expensive Microsoft Azure to Amazon AWS was successful!

Here's why I moved:

  • Price before moving: $68 a month
  • Price after moving: $4 a month

So... yeah. I was getting a few credits on Azure that made the price palatable, but you can see how moving's a no-brainer :)

Anyways, that doesn't mean too much for the webpage itself; it does mean that I won't have the resources to do serious file hosting anymore, though :( (my disk is literally 8GB)

Time to go back to work - hope you're having a great summer!

Well, it finally happened...

September 3, 2015, 3:05 pm

The server's been running pretty much nonstop for over a year until a few hours ago last night, when the site went down!

And no, it wasn't due to a crash or lack of maintenance (heh, heh... :( ), but because the bandwidth bill exceeded the amount of funds I had available.

Bandwidth is expensive

Yeah. Bandwidth. It's mostly actually because I'm mirroring some Raspberry Pi 2 images and Project M files, but it's surprisingly not cheap. Anyways, with a few structural changes and alerts made, we should be good to go for times ahead!

A new tutorial! (and more)

January 6, 2015, 9:18 pm

There's a new tutorial up! It explains how to turn a Windows PC into a Wi-Fi hotspot, in case you ever need to share your Ethernet (or other internet source) with your myriad of other devices. It's not difficult to do, but it's long...

...probably could have curtailed it a bit. Oh well. It's really thorough. Find it in the tutorials section!

I may or may not do the PuTTY one soon- there might not really be a need.

Also, CSS (styling) changes coming soon! I'm finally sick of staring at this shadow-y H2.

Busy with... a Assessment Dashboard!

Assessment dashboard

Remember that FRC scouting tool? Well, now I've been asked to turn that into a dashboard to gather the various statuses of different projects, so I'll be busy with this for a while.

Next up? I'll be adding Lucario's Smash for 3DS info to the Lucario section, and creating a tutorial on how to tunnel with PuTTY!

FRC 2013 Scouting Logger Now Open!

September 10, 2014, 7:19 pm
FRC Scouter

Here's a scouting application for Rebound Rumble, for those off-seasons that are still happening! It handles not only the calculation of match scores (to verify scouter results) but also allows for team robot data entry to find out what style of robot your alliance partners or foes are. It's coded in the same thing this site is in- PHP, and MySQL, and runs easily on a Raspberry Pi! If anyone wants source code, just send me an email!

It's Summer!

July 4, 2014, 11:24 pm

Time for the outdoors, and sleeping lazily on the couch!

Really, though, it's time for work on this and my calculator app. So far, it's a nice 4-function calculator with memory functions as well, but hopefully it'll blossom into a unit converter and scientific calculator.

News 1.2!

April 28, 2014, 3:07 pm

An update to the news system- gone is the long, lengthy one-page stream of new, in is the now totally database-managed news system (It was already databased-managed earlier, but old news snippets were not migrated yet).

An idea to webdevs building the same- instead of separate queries to determine if you need a "next page" button, why not just query for one more entry than what is shown? Then you can test for the extra entry and display the buttons you need.

Client Data!

April 20, 2014, 9:53 pm

I've written a little simple tool to fetch connection data from PHP's vairables, and there's a little Javascript there, too, which can check your Flash and Java versions as well.

Check it out here!

(Wonder why HTTPS is listed twice? That's no error- it checks to see if you're going through an unencrypted proxy or someone is using a tool like SSLStrip to intercept your communications. Either way, it indicates if your connection is being tampered with, and if so, you should almost definitely stop using that internet connection, since someone is probably stealing your passwords.)

The Infamous Heartbleed Bug

April 10, 2014, 5:08 pm
The unofficial Heartbleed symbol

Genesect has revealed a hole Parasect (or some other fiend) had created in OpenSSL-secured websites that exploits its heartbeat to feed off of sensitive server data. If you haven't heard about it, it's a big deal on the internet right now.

Because of this, all encryption on this server has been re-keyed and the hole patched (I actually did this two days ago, but was too lazy to report it). Although there are no known attempts to extract this site's keys, go ahead and change your password if you think your connections might have been compromised.

Lucario's in Super Smash Bros. 4!

February 3, 2014, 3:47 pm
GRAH! I'm back!

Sakurai's done it! Lucario's back for another round of Smash in SSB4, and Mewtwo fans can do nothing about it! *laughs maniacally*

Aura Sphere size comparison (Well, this text was suprisingly tame)

According to Sakurai, Lucario's Aura mechanic has been amplified- We've increased the influence of his Aura this time, so a damaged Lucario is truly a force to be reckoned with.

-which should make a fully charged Aura Sphere quite a sight!
