A few years ago I made a conscious effort to stay outside more, especially in the winters when I’d go stir crazy. Either sitting out on my balcony or go out for walks at the park or around the neighborhood. I started playing closer attention to the positions of the major constellations, moon, and planets. […]

Hello flying and new job

A couple of big things have happened the past few months. Most recently, I rejoined the tech workforce a couple of weeks ago after my two year hiatus. A good friend of mine that I used to work with hit me up out of the blue and sold me on this new awesome place he […]

I feel remiss if I didn’t mention something that was brought to my attention in a comment on my last post.  Back in February I drove down to Vandenberg Air Force Base to photograph the launch of a test Minuteman III ICBM. This was the second one I’ve done, the last being in July last […]

Welcome 2019

I feel like I haven’t done much that’s post-worthy the past couple of months. Maybe I have. Oh well, just checking to make sure the website still works. It does!

Thefted firewood and rope

After my last camping trip, I was hauling around three boxes of leftover firewood, a 20 L water jug, and my camping chair in the back of my truck for a couple of weeks. After I left the Sharks game at SAP Center last night, I noticed it was all gone. It was a lot […]

Some belonged to my grandma, a couple from her brother that was killed right out of high school in WWII, and others loaned from family friends. I learned a few things in the process, such as the location […]

Fixing WPA2-Enterprise on OS X

Throwing another tidbit of recently found knowledge out here. Along the way with playing different certs on my EAP-TLS I wound up removing the 802.1x password entry from the OS X Keychain (at the time thinking it would help my problem). What I discovered after that, even after reverting my RADIUS server config, I couldn’t […]

You think you know something just enough to get by, until you have something that challenges your workflow and tools. Then you have to brush away the cobwebs, learn a few things, and work on some scripts. Based upon my recent adventures in dealing with EAP-TLS for wireless, I realized I was doing several things wrong […]

If you’ve ever tried setting up FreeRADIUS and WPA2-Enterprise, and wondered how the example certs wind up with the X509v3 extended key “TLS Web Server Authentication” on it, the trick here is a config file specifying a numerical OID for the key instead of a text description. (Apparently Windows expects to see these TLS extended […]

Minuteman III launch 7/31

Sunday morning I got an email from the launch-alert mailing list about an upcoming Minuteman III ICBM test out of Vandenberg AFB on Tuesday morning. I had just gotten back from photographing the Iridium 7 launch a few days prior, but being a cold war nerd I definitely did not want to miss seeing an ICBM […]
