So what you're also telling me is that "debt buyers" obtaining these lists of people's names, last known addresses & phone numbers, and SSNs could just be identity thieves! So I guess to hell with having a strong password and using encryption, you darn well better not find yourself in debt going into collection! #cryptoparty #smartmoney https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hxUAntt1z2c

Arduino Day Special: Make an EPROM Tester with an Arduino Mega and Octal Latch
I could have just asked around to see if anyone had an EPROM validator, but why ask when you can spend several hours doing it yourself, and then several more hours writing in pedantic detail about it?  Of course, I must have the DIY bone... Who still uses E...

At last, powerful credit tracking at your fingertips! Use whether or not you're a Capital One customer! http://www.mobilecommercedaily.com/capital-one-provides-mobile-users-with-on-the-go-credit-check-app
Capital One is overhauling its credit tracking service with a mobile-first approach via a new application that allows users to check and understand their credit scores while on the go, a response to the fact that most of the use for the previous service came from smartphone users.

More things lost on today's youth
We have seen a staggering evolution in technology and aesthetics in our just shy of 30 years in existence, and what's more interesting to me about this evolution is the things we don't do anymore rather than the new things that have evolved.
I'm a collector. My wife doesn't help me with my problem. It's something I've done since I was young, and growing up as an only child, it brought me joy to share these things with others. On the other hand, she comes from ...

Moments Inside Google I/O 2016
I was invited to attend Google I/O 2016 at pretty much the last second -- only about 10 days before the start of the event.  This is my first time here, though my wife DoesItPew has been here twice before already.  We got to attend the convention together f...

Run Integration Tests Separately Within Your Maven Build
There are several ways to configure Maven to run designated tests separately in a Java project.  Usually, people want to distinguish between unit tests and other types of automated tests during a build.  Unit tests are fast because you are mocking all the e...

More Reviving Old Computers

Pinball is a fun pastime enjoyed by many thousands of people worldwide. Some even go so far as to maintain personal collections of games. You need a strong stomach sometimes when you pick up old games or "great deals" though, because you may be inviting in unexpected guests...

And I thought my Gottlieb King Pin was bad with all the dead bugs & spiders, but this really takes the cake!

(They were under the relay board in the very bottom of the cabinet. I've never bothered to take out that board since the game works fine, and have even had this game in my front room for 2 months!)

Story
Tagline
Engineer for a big bank by day, zealous mobile & Web programmer and life enthusiast by night.
Introduction
Software engineer & tester for lots of platforms from embedded systems to million-dollar enterprise business machines.  Stock options maven, and vintage music and television game show enthusiast.  Collector and semi-frequent wearer of fine suits & dress clothes.  Starting a collection of pinball machines, and share a large video game collection and a modest retro computer collection with my wife.  Formerly a scuba diver, composer, and getting back into percussion, so my perfect pitch won't be going away anytime soon.  Laments how "jack of all trades" is no longer a viable career path.
Bragging rights
Winner (and then mentor) at several hackathons & contests, including "Best M2M App" with SpeechPipe at an AT&T Hackathon in 2014. 2 Apps on the Android Market, 1 app on BlackBerry App World, 2 apps on Windows Phone Marketplace. Marched in the 77th annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in 2003. Won Call for Tapes in PASIC in 2002. Scored a 94% on the Nitrox test (for scuba diving) when I was only 12.
