AWS Cloud

I didn’t mention in the previous post the new KautzCraft LASER website is installed on its own virtual server in the Amazon Web Service (AWS) cloud. Of course its actual location is irrelevant and only of interest to me.

One of my many hobby interests is building web sites. Because I can. 

The easiest way to deploy a web site is through the use of a website provider. I presently use Mochahost. GoDaddy is another well advertised provider but I have never used them. These and many other hosting services provide all the background infra structure needed to build a website. 

When using a […] Continue reading » AWS Cloud

I tease the family with examples of how my (our) Frisco home is haunted with mysterious light reflections and apparitions appearing within the house. Of course, I believe none of that is real haunting. It’s just normal visible phenomena that could alternatively be explained using the same creepy format of all the “bad science” programs shown as popular entertainment on video media channels.

Bad Science is a rant for another time. Let me just say, fake science and science fiction is at an all-time high. Creating an all-time low in real science.

Back to my story…

Wife Gloria is away on a “Quilting Sewing Retreat”. It’s a type of sewing club […] Continue reading » Kenny Keyboard

Oh-No! More NUC

The Logitech Unifying USB module (dongle) may be the culprit in my NUC freeze up problems. I have moved the tiny module away from the computer and the through-the-case USB ports using a USB extension cable. I have done this with both of my NUC computers.

I do not know the actual cause of issues within the Logitech module. Internet speculations suggest it may be some harmonic problem with the new higher speed USB3 ports now in common use on most all PC’s. Logitech Unifying Transceivers were designed when USB2 was standard.  But this suggestion is speculation.

What happens and is most important, is if moving the modules away […] Continue reading » Oh-No! More NUC

Can’t Stand the Heat?

The Intel NUC has been having “fainting” spells. Lots of write up about the problem in the Intel NUC forums and elsewhere on the internet. No one has the cause so therefore no solution. It is a random but re-occurring act.

I thought it might be the new embedded Linux feature. I disabled that feature but it has not proven to have been a contributing cause.

Just about every component and accessory has been questioned. Most users experiencing this action think it is some sort of driver software problem. It is certainly tied to the video in some fashion.

I think it acts like a thermal problem. That would […] Continue reading » Can’t Stand the Heat?

Strange Encounter of the First Kind

Definitely not meeting up with the space aliens. But strange things started happening with my Intel NUC mini PC. It seemed to be possessed by something.

The computer started freezing. Meaning it froze the screen display and would not respond to any user inputs. Total system lock-up.

Microsoft and WIN10 (I have pro) are always doing updates and changing things. So it is very difficult to know in which direction to look for the problem. Also, I have had several firmware updates to the NUC embedded software (Archaically referenced as the BIOS)

The only way to escape the freeze was to pull the power plug and recover from a […] Continue reading » Strange Encounter of the First Kind
