I've been slacking on state of the company updates because
I'm a slacker.
What We Have Been Up To:
Peter has been working really hard on the heat mapping software we are making
for NWB Sensors. The software can now record at 1 FPS (I'm told it will go up
to 7 FPS if Sandra Bullock and Keaneu Reeves are using it). The software also
keeps track of GPS coordinates which are some of the best coordinates to keep
track of. If you need a top-of-the-line heat imaging setup using Flir Tau or
Photon cameras and rad software from Digital Engine give Paul or any of the
other NWB Sensors guys a call at 406.579.0510.
I have been putting together a web site for NWB Sensors which will be up as
soon as they decide on a sufficiently cool URL. I have also been “helping” out
at the social media user's group (SMUG) classes that the TechRanch has been
hosting. We just finished with the beginner sessions so going forward there
will be a class about once a month on various social media topics. Laura Rhodes
has been doing a wonderful job putting these on so if you're interested drop
by, you can find a schedule on the TechRanch website. Finally I am finishing up
an idea we were tossing around the office – a Facebook application to trade and
price your friends on a stock market. Brain Trolley Trader is in beta right now
so come and try it out!
Kevin has been working on additions to the OpenWrt router
firmware to enable VPN with IPsec connections. The functionality is all there
and working as of a couple of days ago, woohoo Kevin! Kevin is now working on
making the setup process a little more user friendly. The patches have been submitted
to the OpenWrt project so be on the lookout for the updates to be committed in
the near future. We have also been tossing around the idea of offering pre-loaded
and configured routers for sale. I will definitely make it known if or when that
We have also held two LAN parties since my last update. We
have had around 30 people at each which has been amazing! Unfortunately we are
really pushing the limits of the library’s electrical system so if we get too
many more people we may have to start looking for a new venue. If anyone has any good and cheap suggestions please drop me an e-mail.
