    I'll go first!

    Oh absolutely. Locally, it would run Apache for sure. I meant so that I could check the status when I am at work and let others running my software do the same. Some of those briskets take 12 hours or more to smoke.

    Looking for your opinion

    This is where I stand on projects like this: If the computer is trashed, and can never be put back to original (ie. you found it in a garbage bin), then go for it, but if the computer can be restored to all original, it should be restored. If the computer is in good shape, I support modding it...

    Antique floppy disks can harm your computer (Youtube)

    I'd like to understand more on why you disagree? I probably pulled my Commodore 1541 apart twice a year to clean the heads when I ran my BBS. Things would start going bump on the night and my BBS would crash. A quick headcleaning and things would be good for another 6 months. I'd also copy...

    I'll go first!

    I've been looking at doing a project like this for quite some time. I've been looking at the PiSmoker project. I can't stand his software implementation, but I think I could just rewrite most of that in Python and then setup a webpage out in AWS for it to update.

    Check out my Pi1541 Build

    1. I did choose option A. There's no risk of damage that I know of. It's been a while since I did this project, but as I remember it, Option B is simply for allowing daisy chaining of additional drives. 2. Fritzing sucks big time for making new parts. And there is no reason for it to be that...

    New tabletop arcade

    Yeah, and I am actually considering selling the house and downsizing. Which means smaller workspace!

    Introduction to the Oscilloscope and my Recommendations

    I feel like one of the tools that baffles those new to electronics for the longest period of time is the oscilloscope. It's really a fantastic tool for troubleshooting electronic devices, circuits and components. It's also very misunderstood. I've created two resources to get people started...

    Disable and remove .DS_Store files stored on network locations

    Not specifically SBC related, but in building my Raspberry Pi NAS, this irritated me to no end. My Mac creates .DS_store files all over the place and it looks terrible on my WIndows and Linux boxes that are connected. Here's how to kill it: .DS_Store files contain extended attributes created...

    Check out my Pi1541 Build

    I built a Pi1541 and it is awesome! Check it out. The Pi1541 emulates a real 1541 using a copy of the Commodore 1541 ROM and a 6502 CPU emulator. Pretty cool stuff!

    PiVPN Issues

    So just went through the entire process last week and wrote an article on how to do it: Did you put a port forward in your router for 1194 to the internal IP address of your Pi?
