Building DailyKilobyte - The Research

02 Feb 2018

Before late of 2017, DailyKilobyte was a hobby website for me to fool around. It was once a full blown lawn care service website that I build to test to see if I could get any service requests. To my surprise, within four days of being a lawn care service website, it received its first service request which I turned down due to not knowing anything about lawn care or owning any types of equipment to do so. I think my excuse was that we’re at full capacity and could not accept more clients until so and so date. This project went on to receive a few more service requests in the 30 days or so before I shut down the site. I went on to build out a few more websites after that.

Setup Ruby on Rails on OSX Mavericks

26 Sep 2013

A couple of days ago I decided to turn my one year old gaming PC into a hackingtosh. It process was fairly easy, a lot easier than the last time I tried. Unlike upgrading your (legit) MBP or iMac form Mt. Lion to Mavericks (still in developer preview), the data are saved. Doing a clean installation of the OS means that I have to install everything from scratch.

Building github pages with jekyll

18 Sep 2013

My hosting service with dreamhosts ended a little over year ago, I didn’t want to renew it partly beause I was using wordpress at the time to blog. I like wordpress, its a flexible platform to use and create many things. In my opinion, I just feel that it is no longer a good blogging platform. Its too big and heavy for that now. It doesn’t help that I have a shared hosting so my site is constantly slow.
