You're sitting in front of your computer, minding your own business, when you suddenly notice the webcam light is on. Something is looking at you -- maybe even recording or broadcasting online. But what? You don't have Skype running, and you close the browser just to make sure. The light won't go off! What's using…

I can see the ice delivery industry making a comeback in the near future. I live in the forested areas of  the Poconos PA. I only have use for an A/C when the summer is at it's highest temps. In 2013 I think that was under 100F but obviously, there is a warming trend now across the Northern Hemisphere which probably won't go away. This idea is awesome, I can use it economically and only when I need it. Truthfully, I love the hot weather, unfortunately, it also means this area suffers during the winter months.

Truthfully, this vehicle should be used in our metro areas right now ... 4K though is a little much for the avg bicyclist. Try adding some solar powered items to make it more like a car. But think further, think for other geolocations. I couldn't make it up the hill to my home with something like this but I am totally incept-ed into it's concept.

Aren't you afraid the drywall will crack when you move the trailer?

No - I'm only moving it 40 miles to its permanent location, and drywall's easy to patch if it does break, so I won't even be upset if it cracks on the way over.

Did you know that storing files directly on your desktop can harm your productivity? I used to be one of "those" people who downloaded files straight to the desktop. If you can identify with that, then I have good news for you: you can do better. Desktop storage is simple, sure, but it comes with…

Story
Introduction
An Old School Geek. I was Geek when it wasn't chic. Haha.

Yep, that's me. Geekin' out since the Commodore Vic20 was just becoming a household name. Storing programs on cassette tape! My first travels into a network were sloooooww! At only 150 baud, you saw every character appear on screen (like in the Wargames movie). My first stop was a local BBS over plain old telephone lines. WOw! What a rush.

Well, now the internet is part of everyone's lives and I for one couldn't do without it. Who would turn down the opportunity to have an enormous resource like this at their fingertips from the comfort of their home?

Soo ... In a nutshell, I like to fix PCs, build them, optimize the operating system, make special purpose computers, get rid of malware, and do lots of homebrew stuff I find on the interwebz. LOL. Lots of other stuff too, anything I find that tickles my techy bone.

Recently I have also gotten interested in the Green Movement and seeking out solutions for my home in Solar Energy, Recycling, Repurpose, or Reuse of raw or waste materials, Alternative Energy Production, and of course I always love a good HOWTO so I can save $$$ on Home Projects!

I work as a Freelance Computer Repair Technician for my local area and depend on word of mouth referrals at this time.
