  • Using A Security Key For Gmail

    I recently got a HYPER FIDO Pro Security Key and I decided to use it for 2-step verification on my Gmail account.

    On your Google account, under the security section it gives you the options for 2-step verification.

    There are multiple 2-step verification options. You could use a text, or a phone call, but to use a security key, click on “Show more options”. It will ask you to plug in your security key and press it’s button.

    When it has recognised the key, it should look like this. Now whenever you login to your Google account for the first time on a computer, it will ask for the security key to be plugged in. Using a security key is fun because it is like a key to a lock, only it is the key to an application.

  • DSI Fuse Replacement

    So, I blew the fuse out on my DSI while testing. The screen didn’t turn on and the yellow charging light would flash. I found replacement fuses and ordered them. I found where a fuse was and had soldered a wire on so I could bypass it. Of course that wasn’t a permanent fix, and there was still some weird behaviour. Here is a picture of two fuses next to a penny.

    It turned out that the fuse was even smaller than the buttons that I had soldered on, and it quite the pain getting one on there. I thought that there was only one fuse, and after replacing the one shown here, the screen worked, but it wouldn’t charge. I could charge it with the DSI on, but as soon as I turned it off, the charging light would flick off…

    This is where the second fuse is. It is very close to other components, so it took a bit longer to get it on there safely. After soldering it on, and putting the battery in the right way, the DSI works just like new!

  • Ford Focus Door Handle

    Our drivers door on our 2007 Ford Focus broke and we were forced to open the vehicle from the trunk or use the key-less remote. After disassembling the door, this is the piece that I found was broken.

    The bottom piece is the new part and you can see the little metal tab sticking out on the right that is not on the top part. It was quite the hassle to get the part into the door since there is limited room. Now the door works just as new and I am pleased with the part.

I love music and have started to play around with free music related software, from fully functional DAWs, to synthesizers, to plugins, and even smaller applications like tuners.

My Music

I have been interested in audio and how it forms music for a long time. Recently, I have started to actually make my own music. Through this process, I have learned first hand that it really takes dedication and time to produce music that sounds good. Here I am going to share some of my creations.

In high school, I was part of a FRC robotics team. I am no longer on the team, but all of my posts are original and are my own work. This website being my blog, I will continue to keep old posts up, just not on my homepage.
