Cool Toy... +Walter Jevack you need to get one of these and tell me about it. :)
 
The CuBox-i is certainly an interesting mini PC. It offers a lot of flexibility since its support for Android and Linux is excellent, and it excels at running Kodi.
At just 2" by 2" by 2", the CuBox-i is a little cube with big potential. It comes in dual-core or quad-core models and can run Android, Linux and OpenELEC.

This was on my gadget radar, but I just got the Raspberry Pi 2 instead.

I am starting to think I have my fathers penchant for over building things.  But at least the Sump Pump works now without having to do anything manually and it's a whole lot quieter.... Tip for any Corporate Engineers building things that vibrate.... Lock Tite on your screws keeps them from falling out or at least a lock washer.

Spring is going to be rough on them when they don't get any days off for the rest of the year because of it.

    This space intentionally left blank.
  • Westfield Insurance
    WebSphere/Linux/Unix Technology Lead, 2005 - 2011
    I lead an amazing team of Linux and WebSphere Tech's. We began automating our infrastructure when I started there. Within the 5 years I was there the team managed to drop build times from 4-5 days to 4-5 hours. So, yes DevOps works and will save your company time and money. We were so fast at building the environment that before I left the plan was to rebuild rather than restore the servers in a Disaster Recovery situation.

Story
Tagline
Linux it's not just a job it's an adventure
Introduction
I started working with *nix in while a student at Kent State University in the early 90's.   In 1995, as an E-Mail Administrator for Caliber Technology (now part of Fedex) I was tasked with administering Sendmail on both Slackware Linux and Solaris Systems. My first home install of Linux was MkLinux DR1 in 1996 on my 60 Mhz PowerMac.  Since then I have been working and consulting on Linux and it's uses in the Enterprise to support everything from E-Mail, Firewalls, Web and File serving to custom cluster solutions and grid solutions.  I have had the opportunity to work in both Fortune 500 companies and small 2 person organizations.  This has given me the unique insight into the differences every size business faces.

Education
  • Kent State University
    Psychology/MIS, 1990 - 1995
    Yep couldn't decide what to do. Ended up doing computers. I used to think I would finish out my degree someday. Now I am not so sure there would be a benefit.
  • Kenston High School
    1987
    It was fun. I did time as a high school DJ on our over the air Radio station. We were pumping out a whole 100 Watts. But we covered most of Cleveland.
