This is a work in progress as it has turned out to be far more complicated than I thought it would be! I’ve learned a lot about how to design parts for my 3d printer and how to use the laser cutter at Reading Hackspace too though so already winning!
Over the passed few […]
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.
The Good Bits
Despite having a bug that left me knackered through application of drugs, coffee and rum I ignored it long enough […]
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. There are apps for Netflix and various UK providers but there isn’t one for Amazon Video or Sky Go. Controlling them typically requires a keyboard […]
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 […]
