SSCT Messenger

I recently separated from the Marine Corps and my unit gave me a plaque with an Arduino + SainSmart LCD Keypad that displayed a wonderful going away message. I decided to take it a step further and add the Adafruit CC3000 breakout wireless chip and make it so my Marines could send messages to my plaque.

Light Up Your Ride

I recently bought a 2014 Jeep Compass and decided it needed some extra lighting inside. By using an Arduino Uno with a Bluefruit EZ-Link bluetooth adapter I was able to easily port my NetLight project to a different environment and control it with my Android device.

OpenELEC Navigation Mod

While you and I know how to SSH into the Pi and call python randomshow.py "The Office" maybe your family isn't as computer savvy. So before your spouse makes you get rid of your sweet RPi + OpenELEC setup because it is too difficult to operate follow my tutorial here to make it easier on them.

Copying Groups With PowerShell

Every now and then you may find it necessary to copy one user's groups to another user in Active Directory. I have written a simple script to do just that so you can get back to doing important things, like playing Skyrim and drinking Mountain Dew.

OpenELEC TV on Raspberry Pi

A while back the wife and I realized we were paying too much for cable and decided to cancel it. While I liked the smaller bill every month I really missed my favorite shows. So I set up OpenELEC on a Raspberry Pi and wrote a python script to simulate cable television.

SysTrack

Monthly inventory making you want to suck start a pistol? Well not anymore! SysTrack reaches out across your network to perform an inventory of your systems without you needing to get up from your desk and even allows you to find where systems reside on your network. It's funny how you find you enjoy your life when you're happy to be alive.

Custom Networked Lighting

I built NetLight to bring some automated lighting to my man cave. Download the project files and you can build your own too!
