Home IT Setup — 15.9%

[...] out what's missing, and what to change, when another machine or technology enters the fray. There's a very faint chance that something here might be useful to someone or that they get sent here by some confused search engine algorithm - if so, don't hesitate to contact me with any questions. Home Server An increasing requirement is an always-on server - I happen to currently favor a Mac Mini running Windows 7 (I stick to windows out of laziness - I'm just quicker on my feet in a windows environment). I would [...]

What's Cool Today — 15.9%

A cheap imitation of a blog, trying to keep track of things that I find interesting on any given day. 2010-03-09 Lots to catch up on, but in the meantime: The Parrot AR Drone - indoor/outdoor R/C helicopter with two on-board cameras, gyroscope and sonar... It basically flies itself, but you can tell it where to go! The whole thing is controlled over wifi from an iPhone; I wouldn't normally link to an Apple-related product, but this is just too cool... - touch-screen technologies [...]

TextFileEncodingDetector project — 9.5%

[...] encodings such as EBCDIC, and more modern encodings like UTF-8 and UTF-16. The newer Unicode formats have a standard for "self-describing" the encoding, in the form of a Byte Order Mark, but this is often not present, and in fact actively discouraged by the unicode consortium, in the case of UTF-8. For UTF-8 in particular, this poses a problem because UTF-8 encoding looks a whole lot like ASCII/ANSI/Windows-1252/Latin-1, a family of related encodings commonly [...]

Android Stuff — 5.3%

I recently purchased a Samsung I7500 "Galaxy" (Android) phone to replace my Samsung i600 "European BlackJack" (Windows mobile) one - now the excitement of just pawing the thing is starting to wear off, so I thought I'd record a log of all the silly things I need to do to get it working as I want: Essential Apps that should come pre-loaded: Barcode Scanner (plays up a bit with the Galaxy flash and autofocus, but OK when the product to be scanned is placed on a flat matt surface) FTP [...]

USBKeyBackup Project — 4.9%

Originally developed for my father-in-law who likes to keep all his documents on USB Keys, this program does the opposite of what most USB Key Backup programs do - instead of backing up the computer to the USB Key, it backs up the USB Key contents to the computer (or multiple computers). The project is largely complete (and handed off to its primary user), and I suspect it could be useful to a wider audience. It includes: File version detection, only backing up files that have changed since the last backup Point-in-time restore, restoring [...]

Professional Resources — 2.7%

The web is a big place, and there is an awful lot of very useful stuff in it. Finding it is not always very easy, however. To help (myself, more than anything) with that I'm creating a section here that could be entitled "Links". Everything here is free unless indicated otherwise, I hate sites that link to paying services and products without warning you. For now I'm just going to create a little-structured bullet list here. I'll clean it up into tables, add clearer formatting etc at a [...]

Welcome! — 2.7%

Welcome to ' '! This is the personal site of Tao Klerks. Mainly an experiment, a place to keep projects, etc. This is not a site about any sort of physical building design! The site's a little bare right now, I basically plan to use it to host and "Showcase" some of my ongoing personal projects, as well as a place to keep my lists of useful links, silly edits to things, etc. The most notable thing on this site is probably [...] — 2.3%

[...] to change countries every few years, so that I never get to know any one place particularly well. As a result, I look to the internet for information on climbing sites, much like any other information I ever need - however I haven't found any place out there where I can find reliable information about several different climbing areas, places, specific crags, and especially searching efficiently looking by climb difficulties, geographical proximity, diffficulty of access, consensus on "Quality" of the climb, etc. In this web 2.0 age (or is it 3.0 now?), cooperative / [...]

This is a simple .Net 2.0 application, written in C#, that allows you to log the tasks you work on on a daily basis. It sits in the system tray, and starting or stopping a task takes [...]

Screwturn Wiki Captcha Additions — 1.9%

As I'm using Screwturn Wiki for this personal site for my own convenience (not as a real Wiki), I've had to tweak the permissions in a couple of unusual ways, eg allowing anyone to post messages to me and allowing anyone to contribute to "Discussions" pages without being logged in. To make this work, these pages need to be protected by "Captcha" logic the same way as user registration (which I have disabled) is. So I started digging around in Screwturn Wiki's innards and very much liked what I saw! It is incredibly simple to edit an existing [...]

Architecture — 1.5%

Binary Serialization (BinaryFormatter) Stream Analysis — 1.1%

This is a simple project / class for peeking into the contents / structure of a stream that was created by the "BinaryFormatter" class' "Serialize" method. In one project I was working on I found that the stream was much larger than I expected, and wanted to know what kind of problem might be causing it. I couldn't find anything online to do this (and my stack overflow question [...]
