I’m trialing a 4G home broadband router at the minute to see if it can give me decent upload as apposed to the 1mbps I currently get so I thought I’d look into automatically running speedtests. Here’s how and it turned out to be quite simple. Caveat, this runs on Linux.
There is a really […]
As long time readers of the blog may remember I tried to build a 3d printer many years ago without any success. The problem was that at the time I didn’t really have a need for one, didn’t know what was involved or what parts I actually needed. I also bought printed parts from one […]
For whatever reason, back in early December, the ceiling lights at work have started giving me headaches which occasionally escalate into migraines, this is not ideal. We have a very helpful facilities team at work but I though I’d just find a workaround myself, as I like wearing hats this seemed an easy one to […]
December, a wonderfully triumphant mess!
The Bad Bits
I had a weird bug that left me knackered, we had project end which was busy and I was generally pushing myself too hard.

Following up from my post on my Simple Rules I thought I’d start doing month end posts as a recap and log on how I’m doing. Mostly for myself to read back on to see how far I’ve come but hopefully help other people too. It’ll also be a great place to list the odds […]
I realised recently that, like most people, I am watching more and more content on demand and that it’s actually a pain to do with Windows 10 and a HTPC.

As part of installing the EFI kit for Hugo I need to install a crank sensor wheel, to make this a bit easier I though I’d remove the radiator. The car has been stood for a long while anyhow so replacing the coolant and oil is a must before he’s back on the road. I […]
Wow, the last post for Project Hugo was two years ago! A lot of work has happened in the interim but not much actual progress. In part my anxiety diagnosis earlier this year, as discussed in my previous post, plays a part as I’ve been getting my head sorted before tackling the […]
This post is the first non-technical one I’ve done in a while and will discuss my mental health issues, the problems therein and how I’m mitigating them. I talk about things like this on Facebook, Twitter and even all-staff emails at work and I thought I’d finally pen something here. This will also cover some […]
In my previous post I talked about some issues I hit when I upgraded from Ubuntu 14.04 to 16.04, it wasn’t all plain sailing and in this one I’ll cover the issues I’ve had with getting Greyhole back up and running.
At the end of the last post I had my “missing” disks mounted […]
