I was about 16 when i first read about Oak Island, it was the first book posted below (it’s from 1979 and i still got it, it already was a few years old before i got it.). It was mysterious and about a place that still existed and i never forgot about it in all those years.
I even wanted to build a model to understand how it could have worked, with the drain system and the ‘boobystraps’.
In 2014 a series started on History Canada about trying to solve this mystery. I still watch it whenever a new episode is posted.
A few years back i’ve been playing with Unity and Unreal. I’m really a beginner, but it would be nice if some community effort was made to get a Oak Island in a game engine where you can explore some of the things they found.
Today i talked about creating apps for mobiles with a colleague.
I made me wonder what programming IDE i’ve used in the past.
Things i’ve made:
clog killer – a game application i made while working at a job. It was the name of a process on our servers we all hated. It was slow and messed up your terminal.
Webled – have to install this one again, to see what its purpose was 🙂
Whistle hole calculator – When making your own tinwhistle/lowwhistle you had to calculate diameters and positions. I will make another post about this.
Made a Multiple-Choice Quiz tool, for learning Iai-do positions/terminology. (Japanese Martial Arts – See other posts)
A iscp Onkyo controller (see post about my web controller)
And mobile applications using html5, php, css3 and jquery mobile
App ideas, not started or not completed:
Game for blind people (Or people who are bored out of their skull going to meetings) It involves a evolving maze game on a black screen, you have to remember the way. Hitting a wall, buzzz .. dead, start all over again. So you can hold your phone under the table or behind your back. (Black screen and no sound, just the little vibrating thinghy.)
New way to select app’s using a widget.
Pull down search game. (Have to look at the source again, i forgot what i did)
Downloads and screenshots:
I’ll post more/better examples
Reversed engineered a tool found on a ‘hackers’ phone. Apparently it was a security test setup nobody was aware of. I was able to find urls and domains where some call-home functionality was involved.
Bought some large servers with Vincent. 3 ProLiant ML350 G6 with loads of memory and cores. My 2 nodes are running Ovirt Virtualisation, connected to a qnap iscsi host using 10gbps SFPs. Vincents server is running Proxmox.
