Doggie Cam

Time to time, I have come home to find my dog, Sasha wrapped around a tree. And not very happy about it. I had an extra Raspberry Pi (tiny, cheap, Linux computer) and an old webcam. I was able to cobble the thing into a working doggie-cam that takes a picture every minute and sends it up to a webpage, which I can check on my phone.

This is a small mill I built using GRBL on an Arduino, my old Foredom Flexible Shaft tool for the head

My Web Sites

Over the years I have built and run several websites using a wide range of technologies, ranging from static HTML with custom Perl CGI scripts to more modern CMS systems including Moodle, Drupal and CMS Made Simple.

These are currently on line

Congregation Beth Hillel This is the only surviving CMS Made Simple site. The name says it all. It works, is easy to understand and set up.

Amoodle Moodle is a CMS designed for distance instruction. It's been up for roughly 5 years, and is still being used. Before I retired from teaching, I had all my course materials, grades and all that there.

Bio


Schools spend tremendous amounts of money on computer hardware and
software as well as the electricity, training, infrastructure and
tech support to keep it running. This includes hidden costs such as
maintaining accurate software inventories in the event of an audit by
the software association. In my opinion it is overkill to have a
full blown computer with an individual operating system sitting on
every desk when there is an inexpensive, reliable and free
alternative available.
