I recorded this video almost 2 weeks ago, but have been too swamped to edit it. Here are the first two projects I worked on when getting here: setting up my desk for the next 5 weeks, and installing an Ecobee thermostat.
Here’s the last leg of the trip…with stops in Vegas and a gem I came across called Quail Creek Park.
On day 2, I drove from York, Nebraska to Selina, Utah. I-70 through the Rockies was amazing.
I’m spending the next several weeks in California. On Sunday I started driving out, and decided to VLOG about it. Here’s driving from Michigan to California, Day 1.
After using an EOS R for about a year now, I’m finally making decisions on building out an RF lens kit. I posted a video about my plans here… https://youtu.be/BJ8aDuTy6ac
I just posted a follow-up video for the Supermicro pfSense router I purchased a few months back. Â Check it out:

Posted a video unboxing a 1U Supermicro embedded server I purchased to run as a pfSense firewall. Great performance so far while only using 25-30w of power.

I just posted a video about purchasing an EOS R. While originally intending to jump to the R5, I just couldn’t justify purchasing one at this point. But then I realized the EOS R is actually a really great choice right now, and works well as a bridge camera for my switch to the RF camera system. I talk about some of my thought process here…
It’s hard to believe it’s been more than a year since we visited Papua New Guinea. I’ve been thinking about creating this short film ever since. A couple of months ago, after deciding I had procrastinated long enough, I got started on the project. Here’s the final result: my story of our visit to Normanby Island…a day I’ll never forget.

I just posted a video discussing my thoughts on this week’s WWDC announcements including macOS 11, Catalyst, SwiftUI, and Apple Silicon.

It’s been a few years since I’ve posted a video rundown of my homelab. Here’s an update of what I’m using to support my dev projects like Seasonality.
This video took a little longer to post than I intended. Last month we upgraded to a faster internet connection, and in this video I talk about some hurdles I had to overcome along the way. Never thought I’d be using a Mac mini as a router!
I added a Mikrotik CRS328 Layer 3 switch to my home office network recently, and just posted a video showing how I’m using it with my network setup. Check it out:
My thoughts have been with the people of NYC and their struggle with COVID-19. Earlier this year I spent a week there. I put together this video with location suggestions, tips once youâ€™re there, and some of the photos I captured during the trip.

With work finally easing up a bit, I found some time to edit this video I recorded a few months back. In the video, I go through the process of adding a new disk to a Dell PowerEdge server and using it in VMware ESXi. Then I add a second disk and migrate to a RAID 1, and a third disk to migrate to a RAID 5, expanding the disk capacity along the way. All without rebooting the server.

I finally found some time to review the Synology RS2418+. I purchased it earlier this year and it’s been a great NAS for my office.
After waiting several years, I decided it was finally time to make the leap to 10Gbit. Here’s an overview of my new network setup.
In my latest video, I talk about the crop factor on Canon DSLRs while recording 4K video. It’s a hassle creatively, but there are good reasons they design the cameras this way.

I recorded an unboxing video of the Pegasus2 M4. I came across this desktop RAID for a fraction of the retail cost and couldn’t resist. It’s a really cool tiny RAID.
