Chrystina and I went to Waterton for the day. It was great. We had a picnic, went on a hike, got up close with a bear, found some fascinating caterpillars, ate delicious ice cream, and checked out some monstrous wind turbines on the way home. Got lots of nice photos. And videos too! Continue reading Waterton Windmill Weekend
I made this sub enclosure to fit perfectly in the corner of my BRZ trunk. The enclosure houses a JL Audio 10W3V3-4 10″ 500W subwoofer. The sub is powered by a JL Audio JX1000/1D mono amplifier. Using a Parrot Asteroid Smart deck.
I made the enclosure entirely out of 3/4″ MDF. Could have attempted to make it out of fibreglass but I wanted to try shaping it out of wood. In total it took about 25 hours to make from start to finish. For choosing components and for the system installation, I had a lot of help from my friend Klucz; thanks!
See below for more photos and info from start to finish. Continue reading Subaru BRZ Custom Subwoofer Enclosure
Chrystina made these cards from scratch. One for her friend Jenn’s Birthday and one for our nephew Ethan’s Birth… Day. They turned out great.
See below for photos of how they were made. Continue reading Chrystina’s Hand-Made Cards
I was cleaning up my network today and was frustrated that I couldn’t enable bridge mode on my Telus Actiontec v1000h modem/router to put it into a modem-only state. The problem is that Telus changed the root/tech passwords on firmware 31.121L.13 and nobody knows what they are. My buddy Mike told me to try editing the webpage source and I’ll be damned it actually worked!
Basic Instructions (if you don’t want to watch the how-to video below):
1. Go to 192.168.1.254 (or whatever your gateway is) and log in to the admin/telus account.
2. Go to the Advanced Settings tab and open up WAN IP Addressing.
3. Open up your web browser’s developer tools (F12)
4. Search for <tr id=”id_rfc_1483_transparent_bridging” style=”display: none;”>
5. Change “display: none;” to “display: block;”
6. Select the now visible Transparent Bridging option on the page, then Apply
7. You’re done! You can see that the bridge is enabled on the Status tab under Connection Status > ISP Protocol.
Kevin, Simon, Chrystina and I playing TLOU. Had some good moments!

Another Sweep… But… Dammit!

The desk has been put on the backburner while I work on some other projects but I have made some small tweaks to the design. Here is a render of the latest look I am going for.
Simon, Chrystina and I tearing it up in our last round of TLOU for the night.
I restored a Beaver 3800 Jointer and built a retractable caster mobile tool stand for it. I got the retractable caster idea from Carl Holmgren (see video). He is the retractable caster mobile tool stand master! I didn’t have any plans when I built it.
