Computer lab tool kit phase 3 IMG_2136 (1)

Computer lab tool kit phase 3 IMG_2136 (1)

Shopping List:
Grounding mat w/ cable and alligator clip
Ethernet to USB adapter, drivers
Bootable USB stick/(thumb)drive w/ utility sw
Additional USB drives/sticks w/ BIOS updates, etc.
Large paper-clip ready to reset, force DVD/CD disc ejects, etc.
Thermal conduction putty/grease/stuff
Grounding strap w/ cable and alligator clip
Shirt-pocket digital multi-meter
Magnifying glass
Plastic putty knife for prying open plastic cases w/o scratching
3M Magic tape + dispenser
Overly complicated screwdriver bit handle w/ #2 Philips bit
Additional driver bits, Torx, Philips, blade styles
Small sockets w/ bit-to-1/4" adapater
long-reach diagonal cutters

Phase 1 and phase 2 kits are on the lower left.
Starting at the upper left:

Grounding mat with wrist strap. Doesn’t actually have a connector TO ground, you’ll note, but does keep you and the workpiece at the same potential, so better than nothing. Now you appreciate the little chain that drags on the ground under the carts and chairs in some labs.

Some people and their environment and wardrobe choices generate more electrostatic potential than others. I know a guy who used to lead with his car keys to the latch seat on the door jamb, whenever he went through a doorway at the office. One key would arc to the bare-metal plate the door latches on. He drew arcs that made audible "pop!" sounds if he didn’t offer a low-impedance path, and the arcs hurt. Could have had something to do with polyester suits. I prefer cotton.

The mat can’t hurt, might help. If the workpiece’s grounded cord is plugged in, use an alligator clip haywire to connect chassis ground to the mat. Or touch the chassis ground with one hand while working. Or connect the mat to ground at a grounded outlet- the North American 3 wire receptacle ground connection take a standard "Banana" jack. (A forthright Canadian friend uses the word "jill" in place of "receptacle"… the counterpart to a "jack". Suit yourself)

Ethernet (RJ-45) to USB adapter. More than two connectors and a wire, there’s Ethernet transmitter / receiver hardware in the body of it, and USB receiver / transmitter hardware too. Just like you’d expect, these have their own MAC and you may have to make that known (depending on how your network runs). Sadly, I haven’t yet seen a PXE boot setup that accepts the external adapter’s MAC. But I have over-written the adapter’s default to have the adapter take the place of a failing-but-not-completely-broken built-in NIC…
Note ROM disk with drivers.

Partially-unbent paper-clip, size large. For resetting things with recessed reset buttons, forcing CD/DVD drives to eject, etc. Its on a badge-clip and attaches to the lanyard with the bootable USB stick. Save the last one you made and you don’t have to find another paper clip when time is of the essence…

Small tube of thermal putty. Better quality heat-sink-and-fan assemblies come with a dab already in place, and it will squish and flow when heated. If you’re reusing a heat-sink when upgrading the processor on something, you’ll need your own supply. It does dry out, so put the cap on after cleaning the surfaces. Don’t buy the big, economy, size, unless you really use it frequently. I don’t like to let an open tube go more than 6 months.

Non-conductive ruler. Wood or plastic. A metal edge on a wooden ruler is OK, but an all metal ruler is unnecessary trouble.

Grounding strap – wrist band to aligator clip, use with mat or separately, see discussion at top.

Pocket-size volt-ohm-(amp)-meter, aka VOM. Cheap. Something to read what you expect to be +/- 5V, 120 VAC, 240 or 208 VAC, +/- 12, 3V lithium cells for CMOS memory, etc. Built-in leads don’t fall out or break off. Some alligator and/or "ball clip" jumper wires will help if you need to secure one or both ends. Ammeter functions in these are usually too few mA to bother with, but if you use it, get some replacement fuses, its a "when", not "if", situation.

"Magic" tape dispenser. For mending or sealing paper and cardboard. The "magic" 3M tape can be written on with ballpoint pen, vastly superior to shiny tape.

Large multi-bit screwdriver, with Phillips, regular, Torx and socket ends. For unusual jobs, where it is worth having the right tool for the fastener. You can’t buy an assortment of ‘bits’ without getting all the regular blade and Phillips sizes in any event. I prefer a dedicated handle and a bit that doesn’t come off, but I don’t have 1.3 meters of wall space to hang them all on.

Phase 4 exists, it includes a small, sharp, knife, coffee cup and coaster, cup or can for pens, pencils, plastic flatware, skinny tools; duct-tape, vinyl tape for color-coding, extension cords, a Brother or similar label maker, zip-lock polyethylene bags, nickel-plated anti-static bags, boxes and bins for organizing stuff, extra monitors, keyboards and mice. Broom, dust-pan, small-but-powerful vacuum cleaner (Mighty-mite from a garage sale, or similar). Speakers for your radio / computer / phone audio when acceptable. I don’t favor headphones in the lab, may people do. A water bottle or large plastic cup.

There are also consumables: tie wraps, facial tissues for blowing your nose and cleaning up surfaces, paper towels / napkins, light cardboard tags to attach to stuff that has a story. Blank CD/DVD media. A notebook.

SHODAN Reprise

SHODAN Reprise

My workstation, SHODAN, was giving me GPU and PSU errors, so I decided to replace and upgrade the GPU and PSU. Thus, I toiled away to get it working again.

Here I am trying to remove the motherboard so I can do a complete dusting off of all components before installing the new parts.

This is the final phase or version of this current build as I also plan to finally replace processor, motherboard, and RAM, sometime this year.

This is essentially a build that I have been upgrading since 2012 and mainly comprises of:

•Intel i7 3770
•ASRock Z77 Extreme 4
•G.Skill Sniper 16GB 1600 DDR3 (4x4GB)
•Plextor M5 Pro 128Gb SSD; Samsung 850 250GB EVO SSD; Seagate Barracuda 500GB (Primarily use my 8TB Network Attached Storage for my media files)

As mentioned above, the first iteration of this build was in 2012 it has changed many times; swapping out parts, adding parts or peripherals, etc.

This time around I changed my VTX3D Radeon R9 390 to a MSI Gaming Z Geforce RTX 2060, and I replace my Corsair GS700 PSU with a Thermaltake Toughpower Grand Series RGB 650W 80 Plus Gold PSU.

Within this year, it is time for me to replace the processor with an AMD Ryzen 7, a B450 (or X470) motherboard, and still have at least 16GB of DDR4 RAM.

It is nearly time to retire my old workhorse, that granted, can still perform very well in productivity and gaming.

Shooting Information:

•Nikon D7200 with MB-D15 Battery Grip
•Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM
•Manual Mode
•1/15th @ 17mm zoom, f/5.6
•ISO 640
•No Flash Fired

Post Processing Information:

•Adobe Lightroom Classic CC
•Nik Software Silver Efex Pro 2

I accept any comment, from praises, awards, invitations, all the way to criticisms – as long as the criticism is constructive that I can learn and improve from. So, don’t shy away with the comments!! =]

Also, consider following me! I will certainly follow back! You can never have too many friends!! =]

Computer Upgrade 2

Computer Upgrade 2

When I opened up the system case, man, it was so freaky dusty! When I blew it the first time, it created a heavy fog scene in my room!

I spent about 15 minutes just try to get all the dust out of the case and off the motherboard & video card. I really should clean this thing up more often from now.

Old Accumulator

Old Accumulator

I’ve already removed the LPRL (Low Pressure Return Line) and the Low Pressure Switch. I have not removed the line that leads into the cabin, for a very good reason. See all those wires up there? The fuse box has to be removed in order to properly access the final securing fitting, and the battery MUST BE DISCONNECTED!!!!

There are vital wires up there that go to the emissions control systems, starter, computer, etc, and if you accidently short one, you’ll feel it ,as will the vehicle.

After BOTH battery terminals have been disconnected, remove the final fitting, loosen the bolt that is keeping pressure on the black ring surrounding the lower half of the Accumulator, and Remove.

I decided to run water through the old Accumulator (it’s no good anyway) to prove something. My A/C system has been SEALED, but inoperative for the past 8+ years.

Upon running water through the accumulator, the clear water turned BROWN briefly, and little dust and sand particles went down my sink drain. If I had just "Let it be" the damage would have been catastrophic.

The Unending Battle of the Immune System Against HIV

The Unending Battle of the Immune System Against HIV

Over the years, many researches have been done to fully understand the effects of hiv on the immune system. And recent studies have indicated that HIV rapidly replicates and destroys numerous healthy cells each day. In fact, it greatly influences the increase in the invasion of immune system infection. However, progression of HIV can vary greatly from patient to patient. Some patient can even impede its development up to 10 years or more.  

HIV Virus  

HIV or Human Immunodeficiency Virus is responsible for the advancement of a condition called AIDS. AIDS is a medical condition wherein the immune system becomes susceptible to various types of viruses, bacteria and infection since it is not functioning properly. HIV is classified under the category of retroviruses. These are types of viruses that are capable of replicating and copying our body’s RNA into DNA. As a matter of fact, scientists have been amazed by the ability of the HIV virus since no other viruses are capable of doing such. The immune system hiv virus carries two precise copies of RNA, which is considered as its primary genetic material or genome present at the very center of the organism. Its membrane-bound protein is capable of binding to a particular protein present in the surface of immune cells which is named as T-cells. The binding of the organisms to the T-cells results to the exposure of its internal core with the final stages involving the uncovering of the virus’ RNA genetic material.  

Getting to know the facts  

Most immune system facts have indicated that it is a system in the body composed of interrelated cells and organs. Generally it is composed of two main types of cells which are the T-cells and B-cells. B-cells are accountable for manufacturing immune natural antibodies. While the T-cells assist the B-cells in the production of these antibodies as well as the destruction of damaged or unwanted cells 

Every time foreign elements, such as virus, infections and bacteria, invade the body the immune system becomes active to ward off these unwanted elements. T-cells and B-cells instantly come to the rescue and starts attacking the threat, which results to the total elimination of the unwanted foreign agent. The immune system responds to the attack differently depending on the type of viruses attacking the body.  

The Effects of HIV 

HIV virus greatly affects the function of the immune system. It wreaks havoc within the body resulting to a malfunctioning immune support. Additionally, the virus can also infect other cells in the body including the macrophages and other types of cells. Since CD4 (a type of HIV receptor) interacts with the helper T-cells, it directly infects the cells that are responsible for the activation of B-cells as well as cytotoxic T-cell responses. Take note that without the presence of T-cells the body will not be capable of properly producing antibodies, and HIV cannot be effectively eradicated. Furthermore, the virus can replicate and multiply – a process that will continue until a substantial number of T-cells have been lost and damaged.  

The fight of the human immune system against the HIV virus is an endless battle. Up to date, no cure has been found to totally eliminate the hiv virus. When it continues to advance, it will lead to the development of AIDS. Although not all HIV-positive patients will progress to AIDS, the complications it carries will be a major concern. A compromised immune system makes them susceptible to all types of diseases therefore regular check-ups and establishing ways to build your immune system will greatly help to delay the advancement of complications.
