Lego Robots!

While this isn’t a totally new idea, it’s something I worked on for a lab in class, and it’s a project that I really liked working on. Enter: Lego Robot Scanner. Our task in this lab was to create a “robot” that would emit sounds whenever the scanner picked up a change in colour from […]

Setting Up A Photoblog

I finally finished setting up my Photoblog, Picture Me Not. I’ve had it running for a few years, but have been bad at updating. While I know I won’t be able to update it too frequently, I figured the whole site needed a redesign anyway and that’s exactly what I did. WordPress & YAPB The […]

Updating the RAM on a MacBook Pro

A few months ago, I spent a lot of time doing research into which companies make the best RAM for my MacBook Pro 15″. I love my laptop, but my need to multi task with numerous browser tabs and applications open at all times has rendered the poor champ into a machine that tends to […]

Simple Login/Logout System in PHP

I’ve been working on recoding the #PickMe project I started at the CUTC Hackathon. I decided to start from the ground up, and literally create the site form scratch. And so I began coding the Login/Logout section of the site. I plan on making this all PHP based, with the use of a MySQL Database. […]

A True Torontonian Summer

I’m currently on my summer holidays, and spending then at home in Nairobi. You’d think that means I have more time to work on my projects, relax, soak up some sun and blog more frequently. Nope. That’s not happening. In fact the opposite had occurred, and I’m more busier than ever, and barely have any […]

Exams Came And Went, Now It’s Summer Time

So clearly I have not been doing a great job in terms of weekly blogging, but to be fair, I’ve had a lot on my mind, and have had a lot of things to deal with. Final assignments due all in the same week, followed by 3 weeks of exam hell. My exams were miraculously […]

Hack For Her Hackathon at Google

So I’ve been bad and missed last week’s blog post, though I have a good(ish) reason – my best friend from Kenya came to visit me, and we had an insane weekend doing everything from Laser Tagging, to Basketball Gaming, to just having a great time! Anyway, time to get on to the tech. I […]

Nothing Tech-y This Week

Sadly, I haven’t had any tech-y things to report for this week. I’ve been super busy working on assignments, and doing my best to pass midterms (coz those are important, right?) I thought I would share some links to useful sites that I have. Music I love listening to music while I work, though if […]

I Won That Round

For this weeks blog post, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to write about. There were so many possible topics from the hacks, google glass the PS4 “announcement” (and the lack of women at the event…). Sure, I could make most of these personal in some way, however I didn’t really feel write using them. […]

Level Unlocked: Alpha Tester

On Thursday I got a request to come out and be an Alpha Tester for a project that some friends have been working on. I felt pretty honoured that they wanted me to test it out, and promised I’d do my best to make it. I got to the lecture hall where they were presenting […]
