Screaming NetTools for Android

This is another one that's been in the queue to update on here for a while. Screaming NetTools!

If you've ever been at a site and needed to scan an IP for vulnerabilities, establish a telnet/netcat session, run a whois, ping, dig, or nslookup, then this tool is for you!

Screaming NetTools is (admittedly) a niche tool, but for those of us who need it know exactly how helpful having the capability to do this sort of thing "on the road"!


PongClock Live Wallpaper for Android

This one's been out for a while and has enjoyed way more success than I ever though it would! It's a PongClock Live Wallpaper for your Android 2.1+ device!

oNotes v1.0 (The WebDAV Experiment)

I have a problem, and it has nothing to do with cowbell. It does, however, have to do with the eleventy-thousand text files that I have lying around my hard drive(s). I just can't keep them organized enough any more!

Pong Clock Screensaver

This bad larry has been around for a few years yet in my "inner circle of nerd-dom". I've just never gotten around to posting it here. I don't know why, but I blame the dog.

It's for Windows only, but should work in anything >= Win98SE. Linux version is forthcoming, after I finish up with the second phase of the clock - Space Invaders!



This is an oldie-but-goodie. I made this a long long time ago. So long ago, in fact, the original page that I got the idea from is no longer around. The great Wayback Machine shows 2002 as the first incarnation, but I'm pretty sure it was before then.

Anyway, this PHP snippet shows the current time in relation to how I view my time, in chunks of how active I am. The lighter the time, the more active I generally am during that block. The darkest means I'm sleeping (hopefully!).

John Conway's Game of Life

This is another little doo-dad that's been in my arsenal for a while now. I originally developed this to be used as a forum avatar and possibly figure out the real meaning of life. I'm still waiting for the riches.

John Conway's Game of Life used to be my screensaver on all my Solaris boxes when I was a Solaris admin. I was facinated by it then and was feeling a little nerdy and nostalgic, so I spent an afternoon to read up on it and develop this.

WDTLER - Fix TLER setting on WD Desktop hard drives

I just applied the WDTLER fix to all my 1TB WD Green drives. No visible change, but the intrawebs say it'll fix me up good. Best trust the intrawebs!

Here's some info on TLER. Start there if you're wondering what I'm talking about. Here's an abridged version of the problem for the "Oh! Shiny penny!" folks out there (like me, heh).

Some notes before we get started....
