My BBS and a few other internal services will be down until  tomorrow evening. My router (or at least it’s settings) has gone tits up and reset everything to default including all of my port forwarding settings. I don’t have the time or patience to mess…

Growing up I played Dungeons and Dragons extensively. The original D&D, Advanced D&D, 3rd Edition, you name it. Really from about 1976 up until the early 90s I was a big fan. Still have most of the books, boxed sets, modules, dice and a crapload of full…

So you’ve spent all your money on a crapload of smarthome devices and don’t have anything else to spend on software, or you just like tinkering with stuff and discovering how and why they work, or maybe you’re just a fan of not supporting developers for…

Funny that I wrote about these earlier but Homecontrols is currently having a sale on a few items including Vera. You can pick up the VeraEdge for $69.95 and the VeraPlus for $119.95. That’s a $30 savings over Amazon’s price for the plus. The Zipato…

As far as home automation hubs go, the sky is the limit… as far as cost anyway. There’s a pretty large range in what they can do and it all depends on what you want to do and how technical you are as well. If all you want to do is control a few items […]

Unless you’re like me and spend the next 17 years picking up odd bits of equipment here and there and slowly build up your Home Automation system, one of the biggest barriers to getting introduced to Home Automation is the cost. It’s most definitely not a…

Last week’s little “hiccup” with Amazon AWS servers and a large portion on the web basically going down because of it sucked for a lot of people. There were a lot of websites that were down and reports of people sitting in the dark because they couldn’t…

I’ve been a pretty loyal HomeSeer user for the last 17 years or so, ever since I got into Home Automation. While there are plenty of pros and cons about it, mainly because it’s paid and everyone wants free beer, that’s not what this is about. I’ll touch…

I was thinking about pool tables the other day. Back in October I got to spend part of the weekend at a buddy's house in Englewood, TN. Managed to get a little time to play Ingress and get some uniques while I was there so that was good. Currently working on my platinum explorer badge. Once we've hit Disney next month I should be pretty close if not over the 10k visits I need.

Anyway, aside from the drinking, good food and awesome company, one of the highlights of the trip was (and continues to be, every time I go) getting to shoot pool. There's usually anywhere from eight to twenty folks that show up for his birthday weekend so there are always plenty of opponents.

Once my oldest gets his hunk of junk towed out of my basement later this year I wouldn't mind replacing the empty space with a billiards tables. I've been pricing them off and on over the last couple of years and once I pay some stuff off it should be doable. http://www.ozonebilliards.com/pool-tables.html #PoolTables #OzoneBilliards
