DIY cell phone car mount

In early 2012, I invented a way to easily mount my phone in my car, via velcro: If you don't mind using strips of velcro on the dash of your car, you can create a very easy DIY car mount for your phone, right on your dash! After a few phones, I'm still using the same idea in 2015: Simply buy some soft/hard velcro (not the hard/hard kind!) and place the soft side on your phone, and the rough side on the dashboard of your car (or wherever you find convienent). Enjoy! Read more [...]

Word Cloud Résumé Improvement

Preface By no means do I claim have an impressive résumé, but I did want to share a trick I thought of to help me improve it. Unfortunately, like most ideas that I come up with on my own that I think are original, doing a few Google searches proves me wrong. Regardless, the following helped me: Word Clouds I wrote a while back about generating a word cloud for my blog (which I need to do again!), because I think wordclouds (and data visualization in general) are cool.

Yet Another Hackintosh Build

A Christmas present to myself this year: rebuild my desktop into a Hackintosh... Ever since I gave into Lightroom and started using my macbook for photo editing, I had been missing my desktop's larger monitor and faster processor. Since I can't run Lightroom on Linux, and since I can't stand booting into Windows, the only solution is to get  OSX on my desktop 🙂 Now, I really had no intention on buying new desktop parts, as my existing Core i7 920 and MSI X58 mobo were still plenty fast for Read more [...]
