Well, could this be the future? I’ve researched laser beam weapons before being used on military aircraft carriers as a means of taking down drones or UAV’s or missiles… But to think that this might actually be the start of the energy weapons phase; leaving behind bullets as “old fashioned” and using directed energy beam weapons as a more powerful and efficient weapon against threats.

“Canadian company plans to one-up Google Earth by streaming video footage straight from the International Space Station to the web with a top time delay of just a few hours.”
Sorry, there was a mistake here. They will be streaming sometime in summer. Keep checking here for any latest news until then!
“Urthecastis due to begin beaming the view from the ISS by autumn 2013 — the equipment will be finished by the summer, then shipped to Russia and sent to the space station via two Soyuz rockets. Once there, the Russian space agency will install it beneath the ISS and downlink the data to Earth where it will be published.”

Well It seems I haven’t made a post in a long time. Well, what’s new? Well the other week my Raspberry Pi came which I have been waiting quite some time for. It’s such a cool little device… For you who don’t know what one is, it’s considered to be the worlds smallest computer which can fit in the palm of your hand. Here’s an image of one…
The first thing I did once I installed the linux operating system debian, was over clock it to it’s newly overclocking setting, 1GHz. The default was set to 700MHz which is obviously, as slow as some modern smartphones today. However after reading that this can cause SD card corruption (which is not a good think, eeek) I left it at it;s standard setting. I bought a 2A plug to use so I know for sure it’s getting enough power in to run everything I want it too. Right now It is hooked up to my 5v 2A mains plug, and has wireless USB card which supports b/g/n and up to 150Mb/s transfer rate.
I’m pretty proud of it. I can do almost anything on it like compiling source code (which it’s meant to do), run a web server along with a MySQL database with php5 installed, and of course something I just have to install, boinc. Why? Because… I can? So, What is boinc? Well, “BOINC is an open-source software platform for computing using volunteered resources.” Basically you attach a project which you would like to be part of, lets say the LHC@Home project. I simply login and then it automatically attaches, and the boinc client then sends a request to download the master file so then it can then request work. This work uses your CPU’s idle time, and can be set in the options to run at different times of the day. Handy for when your not using the computer, you can just crank up the CPU usage a little, OR, let your GPU do the work if your computer is in use.
Welcome to my personal website; my space here on the web. Today is my birthday, and I’ve had enjoyed my day 🙂
With the money I got for my birthday and the money I had saved up, I went a head and bought my self a dedicated server situated in France. With this server I can accomplish my goals such as publishing my websites and hosting other services. As a developer I did need this, as having a home server originally had a down time everyday and I could not pay for having it on 24/7. However it served a good purpose in hosting my gaming/web servers.
I’ll try and keep this website up to date and work on it every now and again.
