BlueProximity on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

I had a desktop I was using with Windows 10, until it kept overheating (at least that’s what I can only assume the blue screens were from after using SpeedFan and some other utilities to notice my temps were way above normal).  After trying to resolve the issue by replacing the monster graphics card, reseating (and applying thermal grease) to the CPU, and making sure all the fans were operating, I gave up.  This was a hand me down workstation, although a nice one, that my brother had been using […]

Some useful links on how to interpret the data from the bridge: Windows .NET Access Data using Bash (there are also some Perl solutions mentioned in […]

It has been breezy all day which is really helping dry things out.       The tower sensor in the barn was pretty close with the outside 5-in-1 sensor earlier.

Moving WordPress to Root

I found a couple great resources for those that installed WordPress in its own directory but want to move it to root.  The first, Moving WordPress, talks about how to physically move all of the files. However, I found another article, Giving WordPress Its Own Directory, which I followed parts of to quickly get WordPress working on my root directory but leaving it installed in its own directory.  It was rather simple: Login to the admin console, go to General Settings, change the Site address (URL) to your domain http://www.yourdomain.com and […]
