Digital Ocean

Digital Ocean my go to server hosting, I have been having a great experience with it so far. The ssd's are noticable in the speeds of the server. The boot time and bandwidth speeds are incredible.

DuckDuckGo Challenge

01/12/2014

I am going to try to use DuckDuckGo as my search engine. I have used it a little and am impressed so far. Instant answer and hacks are handy for example you can type your cron job preceded by cron and will give you an easy to read definition of the job. Great if someone is new to crontab.

Finished Web Site

21/11/2014

Finished this web site as per instructors guidelines. We were asked to make a 5 page site but quickly turned to 8 to have a reasonable amount menu links. The copyright, terms and privacy were mandatory. I made it as responsive as possible and a blog style where I can add more content easily. I got 100% on it so happy about that.

Final exam for Operating Systems

21/11/2014

Just finished the final exam today for the course Operating Systems. It went well I thought. Compared to the others I was slow on the questions but quicker making the script for the second part of the exam. It was a little awkward bringing the big rig into Humber because had to head to Ajax after with a load.

Computer Programming Certificate

10/11/2014

I am working towards the Computer Programming Certificate from Humber College North Campus in Toronto Ontario.
Certificate, offered at Humber North Campus, will provide students with the skills necessary to enter the workplace as a computer programmer. From Windows applications using Visual C# to database design with SQL to building graphical user interfaces for android mobile.

Operating Systems

10/11/2014

Operating Systems is another course I am currently taking from Humber. I run Arch Linux on my laptop, desktop and home media server. So I was really looking forward to learn about shell scripting under Unix as I would benefit from that knowledge immediately. I found bash scripting syntax familiar but yet very different at the same div. Parenthesis and curly braces used heavily in some scenarios. Regular expression was new to me also, and hard to find good resources on so far.
