First Pi Zero W bought

Posted by on Jun 11, 2017 in Tech | No Comments

I was finally able to pick up a Raspberry Pi Zero W a little while ago. They have been in and out of stock ever since they have been released. But what can you expect when you are talking about a 1Ghz micro-computer with 512MB of memory, 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.1 for ten bucks? […]

Nitrox Sticker After Dives

Posted by on May 10, 2017 in Design, Scuba | No Comments

I wanted to see how my new stickers would hold up against the rigors of getting banged around and dipped into salt water. I dove with this tank about a half dozen times and I made sure not to baby it. I would have to say I am pretty happy with it. These stickers are […]

Nitrox Sticker Part Deux

I went on a night dive right after I finished the previous post. I was excited because I would be able to double check my work and get an idea what a geared up scuba tank would look like with my custom nitrox sticker. My original idea was that the sticker would be 6 inches […]

There has been a bit a drama in my local dive community. It appears as though someone at DEMA in Las Vegas actually read the rules and came to the conclusion that scuba tanks that have enriched air, or nitrox, be labeled with a sticker stating that fact. From my understanding, this rule goes in […]

I have been working on learning some different areas of tech. It is kind of a pairing with my study of the AWS environment. I have been seeing more and more development in the programming area in the areas that interest me. I don’t have much interest in sitting in front of a keyboard and […]

Three AWS tests, complete

A couple of days ago, I completed the third of three AWS associate tests. So I figured this would be a great opportunity to dust off the ole’ website keyboard and put some words on this Spartan site. My original plan was to milk this out and to make a post for each test passed, […]

What all this for then?

Yesterday was a pretty important day for me. Yesterday I received what I needed to move on with my life. I don’t want to go into much detail at this time, suffice to say that for the last 6 months or so I have been dealing with a health condition. I can’t tell you the […]

Hostgator to AWS

I’ve got the site up and running, as you can see. There have been quite a few steps to get to this point. My first attempt at a site involved me getting in there at messing with the html code. I didn’t know a thing about CSS, so it took a lot of work for […]

Here we go again

Here we go with another blog. I’ve tried this once or twice in the past, but it would fizzle out in time. So why start another one? Well that’s a very good question, I’m glad you asked it. I’ve got a couple of reasons actually. So here they are in no particular order.
