Welcome to my Internet Home!

If it's financial related and deserves a post, this is where it will get dropped. Check out the market action - and my read on it - here. Topic areas include the political structure of the country, banking, monetary reform, health care and more.
The K1 Rebreather I've been given a lot of crap about my views towards the diving industry in general and the nanny-state-style of operation for rebreather manufacturers - not to mention their outrageous pricing and policies - for years. Its said you cannot bitch if you have no solution to offer. This page is a chronicle of my efforts towards a solution to the problems I have been griping about!
CA Cert My LLC's Private CA; I normally send "signed" emails. If you wish to verify those signatures this CA certificate will permit you to do so. It also will allow your email client to use the public key in those signatures to reply with an encrypted email transmission back to me.
Ham Radio
After many years of stalling (and no real excuse) I decided to take the Ham Examination "cold" in July of 2010, and passed through General. As a result I now have ham radio privileges from HF to microwave frequencies and most-commonly root around on various digital modes including PSK31.
HomeDaemon HomeDaemon was originally written in the 1999/2000 timeframe when computers were expensive and relatively slow, allowing interaction with your home from afar over a web browser and locally using the ADICON Leopard. Support included ADICON RS-485 devices, the X10 cm11 (using Dan Lancini's interface software) and native Z-wave support on the Leviton RZCOP. It still works well, but it's come time to update it 15 years later. There is work being done on a new, networked version that runs on the $35 RaspBerry Pi; reverse-engineering of the protocol to speak to the inexpensive Aeon Zwave interface sticks is bearing fruit and the first signs of a heartbeat have been detected in this new paradigm. Check back here for updates.
