Going to pin this post (if it lets me) so that folks can more easily find the links. You can access the BBS by using your telnet client and visiting telnet://bbs.shadowscope.com or telnet://shadowscope.noip.us If you want an EASY way to get to it from your web browser you can access it from this blog or…Read more
Just some more recent photos of the pond. At some point soon I’ll mount a couple more of cameras from my security system and stream at least one of them on my weather station website. Nothing at the link currently, it’s just a placeholder.
If you subscribe to the site and received a bunch of notifications from old posts today, that is because I’ve just updated 50+ stories where Google Indexer found issues with some of the videos, most of which are no longer available at their original source. I’ve deleted the offending links and corrected a couple of…Read more
I recently ordered and received the Peak Design Universal Adapter and finally got the chance to try it out today. I actually received it for free as I have ordered a case from them, the Everyday Case for Pixel. Due to various problems the cases are still on back order. No big deal but Peak…Read more
I managed to register both shadowscope.net and shadowscope.us; Both should forward here (along with richiemiles.com, which I have owned for several years. the subdomains which redirect to my BBS that’s hosted here, should also forward correctly.

Had a few minutes of downtime earlier. Just finished adding another network drive as I was running out of space for my Plex server. I now have 11 terabytes of network space (4 of that is free). Should be good for another couple of years. Going to take the BBS down again later this evening…Read more
The power went out in the storms last night briefly. When it came back on apparently my mesh network didn’t start operating again. I was able to get out but apparently the BBS was unavailable. Didn’t realize that until this morning. I’ve reset it and everything should be good to go now.
Due to the severe weather that’s supposed to move through this evening and into overnight I will be taking down the BBS and any other internal servers for the evening. Depending on when the storm moves through it may be tomorrow evening before I come back online (Have to leave for work around 6ish.) The…Read more
