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 […]

Kinta Public Schools yearbooks

https://www.flickr.com/photos/kintayearbooks/albums Earlier this year I came across some yearbooks from my school (Kinta High School) in the 1930s. 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.

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 […]

SpaceX Iridium-7 launch

[photos: flickr – SpaceX Iridium-7] After not being able to make the Iridium-6 and NASA InSight launches I was eager to make the next launch from Vandenberg. Last night I drug along a friend and we pulled an all-nighter driving down to Lompoc and back for the SpaceX Iridium-7 launch. I’m wore out but at […]
