GeekMustHave is now on YouTube

Hello and welcome to Geek Must Have YouTube channel. Everyone once and awhile have you come across someone who you know, is going to try and build something cool… that’s me.  This channel is going to be the Geek’s musing about technologies like Electronic Gadgets that blink, buzz, talk, listen and keep you awake at night. Computers of all sizes from the tiny single chip ones all the way up to big servers in the cloud.  Coding from Cobol to JavaScript and everything in between.  Databases starting with the humble flat file, tried and true relational and Big Data, noSQL, REST and JSON.  Communications with wireless, GSM, Bluetooth and amateur radio.  Lots of cheap bits, bobs and do-dads from China.  This channel plans to have mailbags, project builds, deconstructions, reviews, recommendations, tools, and tips

Makers Faire Grand Rapids 2014 Photo Album

Went to the First (I  hope) annual mini Makers Faire at the Grand Rapids Science Museum.  Have to admit this is an excellent venue to hold a Makers Faire.  Quite a crowd there and the museum had  a little problem handling all the folks.  I think they were caught off guard by how many geeks there are out there.   Made me smile.

Met some very interesting folks there and here is my photo album of the visit.   Click on the photo to zoom into it.  There are 2 pages of photos.  Enjoy!

Blinky my new best friend forever

Soon every home will have a robot helper. Don’t worry. It’s perfectly safe.  He is my new best friend.  He is just like one of the family. Blinky is a cross between R2D2 and Chucky. This is a very good 12 minute short video on our Robotic helpers.

Bite my shiny metal ass

Bender rules.  I welcome my Robotic Overlords.  GrandmaBird made this outstanding video that presents Futurama (specifically, the season 2 episode “The Lesser of Two Evils“) as an 80s-era Nintendo game.
