Building DIY LED strips for fun

I work remotely and have for many years, but let’s be honest: it’s the case for a lot of people now. Lately I’ve been trying to step up how my home office looks, especially with regards to its video conferencing capabilities. I started using a DSLR as my webcam along with a ring light and … Continue reading Building DIY LED strips for fun

How to build a 5-acre WiFi network: cheap, reliable, long-range wireless points make anything possible

Last year I moved to a house with some property, and it had a separate garage a hundred feet or so away from the main house. At first, I tried Netgear Orbi mesh networking points to connect them but I couldn’t reliably get one wireless point in my house’s window to connect to the other … Continue reading How to build a 5-acre WiFi network: cheap, reliable, long-range wireless points make anything possible

The curious pirate Hamilton video

With the release of Hamilton on Disney+, I want to talk about another version of Hamilton that’s been traded and talked about in hushed tones for the past several years. In early 2015, I started to hear a lot of buzz about Hamilton. It had just finished its initial off-Broadway run at the Public and … Continue reading The curious pirate Hamilton video

Installing an Alpine Halo9 stereo in a Sprinter Van

Even though it doesn’t have a ton of apps and feels pretty limited, I’m still a huge fan of CarPlay in my vehicles because it makes driving a lot safer. You can get Google Maps with live data instead of whatever weird navigation system came with your car at the time it was built. You … Continue reading Installing an Alpine Halo9 stereo in a Sprinter Van

How to use a DSLR as a webcam on a Mac

Over the past few months I’ve created a tv studio-like webcam setup at home. It took a bit of trial and error and lots of research, and I want to share what I’ve learned. Moving to a real DSLR as my “webcam” was a huge increase in quality and though replicating the whole rig could … Continue reading How to use a DSLR as a webcam on a Mac

How to take a decent photo of your own shoes with an iPhone & WATCH

I have a lot of sneakers, probably upwards of 30 or 40 pairs, and I also have tons of brightly colored cycling socks, so I like to take photos of my shoe/sock combos that I put on Instagram. People often ask me how I get the photos, because it looks like someone else was lying … Continue reading How to take a decent photo of your own shoes with an iPhone & WATCH

My first no-knead bread bake

A couple days ago, I saw that friends were all trying out the New York Times’ no knead bread recipe and I’ve been meaning to for years, so I checked our cupboards and lo and behold we had a new bag of bread flour and some live yeast in the fridge (my spouse bakes regularly) … Continue reading My first no-knead bread bake

Monologuing

Mr. Bond I see you’ve ingested my poison. Getting the antidote is simple. First, look up your choice of local doctors on this website to see if they’re in-network, then cross-reference against the PDF we sent you weeks ago to make sure they’re in your PPO. By the way, have you created your login yet? … Continue reading Monologuing

Entering your home with just a tap (using NFC & iOS)

As you might have guessed from a previous post, I’m not a fan of carrying keys and or even having to use them. When I moved to a new place, I knew I’d use the front door as my main point of entry (instead of a garage attached to a house), so I wanted to … Continue reading Entering your home with just a tap (using NFC & iOS)

I’m a grown ass adult that watches about an hour of YouTube daily and here are some things I like

A few months ago, I finally cut the cord and moved to watching everything on my Apple TV. Though I watch things on loads of streaming apps, I realized the one I come back to most often is YouTube. I easily watch 30-60min of YT videos whenever I jump on the couch and turn on … Continue reading I’m a grown ass adult that watches about an hour of YouTube daily and here are some things I like
