The Great British Bake Off 2014 Final, BBC One

Great British Effect

You might remember the craze that was Great British Bakeoff in its heyday. There was discussion around the water cooler at work about each episode, parodies at SNL, and several spinoff series. While I personally feel that the hype has died down somewhat over the years as it’s been going for over 10 years. While watching the most recent season, I noticed something interesting. There were three finalists and they were all incredible bakers in their own right....

Simple Passwordless User Authorization

I hate passwords. Not as a user as password management is basically solved with most modern browsers and password managers. What I hate is having to deal with them as a developer. Hashing, storing, authentication, etc. I did a small project recently using my synced vuex state and needed a system where users could easily login. I will put a huge disclaimer on this that this is just what I did for my personal project where security isn’t critical....

Vuex Sync Part 1

This is the tale of how I wrote a state syncing framework based on vuex and rollback netcode . It took a few years and isn’t intended to be a “copy and paste” type of thing. I’ll be including code fragments and I’ll eventually post a cleaned up repo with only the relevant pieces. Who knows, if there’s enough interest, maybe I’ll even post a NPM package. TL;DR This is a long article....

Welcome to my blog

Welcome to my blog I’m hoping to start posting project logs here. The focus here will be: Programming/Web dev Woodworking Game development Occasionally embedded/firmware type stuff Blender Maybe even baking? It’s hard to say exactly what will be here. I’ve brought over the medium articles I’ve written. I’ve included a link to the things I’ve written on Hackaday, but I don’t think I’ll bring the actual content over here.

Roads? Where we’re going, we won’t have any roads.

Editors Note: Originally posted on medium by me At least, the way things are going here in the USA. Our roads, as we currently handle them, are unsustainable. As city and states are financially stretched in different and difficult ways, the incredible cost of road maintenance and construction is getting harder and harder for policy makers and government workers to manage. At the rate we are going there will be significantly fewer roads, more traffic, higher taxes, and more pot holes than either you or I could imagine in our worse nightmares....
