New Years Resolution: Relax and Enjoy

Smile yo! You made it to 2014!! The first thing I social media’d in 2014. And I truly mean it. Taking time to smell the roses every now and then is important, especially when you’ve survived another year, and so you should smile. 2013 has been a year full of exciting events. We welcomed Prince […]

UofTHacks 2013, An Overview

UofTHacks, and it was amazing! This was the largest Student Run Hackathon to take place in Canada, with over 350 participants in total! UofTHacks was a 36-hour hackathon that took place between Friday 27th September and Sunday 29th September. Here’s a breakdown of what happened for all of you who missed it, and a reminder […]

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 […]
