  • Running EC2 Instance

    Amazon have provided a pretty neat infrastructure with Amazon Web Services (AWS). By using this as a platform, you can quickly scale up and down provisioned resources. At times, you may experience peak demand, and AWS will allow you to respond with this. At other times, you can scale your resources down.

  • Finding large files in a directory

    I have directories that agedu shows as having large files. However, agedu doesn’t tell me what the names of the files are.

  • How to download newspapers with Calibre and deliver to your Kindle

    So, I have read a few pages which outline how to do this, but none seem to sum all of it. I’ve set up my Raspberry to download a newspaper and then deliver it daily to my Kindle. I paid for a subscription (in fact, I pay for more than one subscription) so I feel entitled to do this, as I’m supporting the journalists financially.

  • Cuba

    Having gone to one of the best destinations I’ve probably ever been to, I felt the need to document it in a more formal way. I was inspired by the Cuban culture and vibrant life to record some of the sights I’d seen.

  • Trying a climb

    This afternoon, I met up with a few friends at a local pub. It was great catching up with everyone, but what also great was that afterwards, I planned to cycle some 15km to one of the largest hills around. I wanted to see what it was like to climb roughly 150m up a hill. And find out, I did. I didn’t quite make it all the way to the top without stopping, but I got to the top with one break just near the top. Needless to say, I will be going back to see how I fare next time.
