I’ve had a few people message me on Facebook asking exactly how my network is setup, now that I’ve added the TP-Link TL-WR702N into the mix.
It looks a bit of a mess, and this isn’t the kind of imagery I’m typically used to making in Photoshop, but this is the basic setup.
I’ve set it up this way so that when I need to take certain things out on location, I don’t have to reconfigure everything to log into a different network.

I’ve been using DropBox for probably about 3 years now, and it’s rather good. Overall, I’ve been quite impressed. It’s reliable, fairly quick (bandwidth permitting), and fantastic for delivering work to clients and models.
Delivery of final work to clients and models I’ve shot with has been pretty much my sole reason for using DropBox, and it will probably remain that way, at least for the foreseeable future.
I don’t need masses and masses of space for that, but I’ve still never really been all that keen on the idea of keeping things online in “the cloud” (which is basically just a fancy new term for the same old servers we’ve always had) as a form of file backup.
After recently having had a pretty major crash on one of my machines (motherboard died, taking the processor, RAM and a 2TB hard drive along with it), I’ve rebuilt and started looking into other potential backup solutions.

GPS is something I’ve wanted to play with for a long time, but the cost of GPS modules has always put them way out of reach for just for the sake of having a new toy to play with.
At the moment, however, the good folks over at Cool Components are running a January clearance sale, and this is one of the products in that sale.
There are a couple of other GPS modules included in the sale, but with a massive reduction from £50 to £12, ordering the LS20031 GPS module (10Hz version) was really no choice at all.
I haven’t actually used my Arduino for a good few months, and I don’t think I’ve even reinstalled the software since I rebuilt my main PC a couple of months ago, but I think it’s time to pull the Uno out of its box and start having a play.

Yes, that’s right, I’m leaving the default WordPress post here, and just editing the content.
I don’t know why I’m bothering to setup another blog. I have a couple already for various things, but none of them are really for me.
So, that’s what this is for. I’ll post a mix of all sorts. Sometimes it’ll be about photography, sometimes about tech and gadgets, sometimes camping & outdoors type stuff, sometimes it’ll be personal, and sometimes it’ll be… I don’t know what.
That’s the joy of having your own blog. Your blog, your rules.
I don’t know how regularly I may be posting, I’ll just post when I feel like I have something I have to say.
I’ll also be putting some things up on here just as a reminder and reference for myself, as I’m a forgetful sort.
I’ll probably forget to change the default WordPress theme for at least the next couple of months.
Anyway, here’s the blog, not that it’s much at the moment.
