I upgraded this blog’s theme to Hemingway Rewritten. It had been two years since I last changed it and I had been looking for a new theme. It’s a nice, minimalistic theme and plus when you scroll down there’s a nice bounce on the header image. 🙂

I have a few projects spinning and I’m trying to get caught up on my blog. The next post will be about upgrading the BeagleBone Black to kernel version 3.13. Also, much of my time has been spent preparing for the release of the CryptoCape. I’m hoping it’ll be ready by the Denver Maker Faire, at which I’ll be manning the Cryptotronix booth. If you are in the area, I highly recommend you check it out (and come by and say hi).
