  • Uncommon Observations about the VESA Studio Display

    I have used a Studio Display with a VESA mount and nano-texture glass for a bit over a week. Here are some uncommon observations about this particular model coming from an LG UltraFine 5K and two Intel MacBook Pros. macOS rotates the screen for you when the display is rotated into portrait.

  • Hosting a nonprofit website for free with WordPress, Azure, Trellis, and Terraform

    I open sourced the WordPress stack and Azure web server infrastructure used for awakeningchurch.com.

  • Robust Portable Live Streaming on a Budget

    In 2019, I built a new live streaming PC for Awakening Church.

  • Support male suicide prevention

    Today is World Suicide Prevention Day. I lost a coworker to suicide a couple years ago. Half a million men will commit suicide this year. Depression doesn’t discriminate. Guys, don’t “tough it out” in silence. Talk to somebody. You can always speak with somebody immediately at 1-800-273-TALK. I am partnering with The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride […]
