Stitcher Copy: Android App

Filed under: Projects — posted by Rob on August 19, 2015

The purpose of this app is to use root access on Android to automate something I found myself doing quite often: Extracting all the *.audio files from the Stitcher download directory (any files downloaded for “Listen Later” go there) Copy to external SD card, into the “audio” subfolder, renaming into mp3. Why did I need […]

Pack: Android Packing List App

Filed under: Projects — posted by Rob on July 5, 2015

A few years ago I made a Packing List Web app. I’ve used this app ever since on my personal travel, both domestically and internationally. The app is not rocket science or any revolutionary idea, but it works because checklists are powerful. Over time you will develop very solid packing lists that help you remember […]

New layout

I created a new WordPress theme for this blog today. It’s super simplistic, but since I’m not a designer that’s usually the best bet for me. It’s basically just Bootstrap 2 with two fluid columns that look decent enough down to mobile size, then I added a font and some colors for nice measure. I […]

CheckCheetah: A Rails Web App for Ordering and Paying at a Bar

Filed under: Projects — posted by Rob on December 13, 2013

In a previous entry, I mentioned that much of my personal free time had been devoted to a closed-source programming effort for a startup I’m involved with. After we spent several months trying to sell the completed MVP and concept to prospective users, we didn’t have much luck. This idea of business and marketing and […]

Ember.js and WordPress Combined

Filed under: Projects — posted by Rob on September 25, 2013

UPDATE (11/1/2013): Time got away from me on this project. Interestingly enough, I started working on a web application project in October 2013 that heavily used AngularJS, so by necessity I was forced to learn that. I prefer Angular to Ember in a lot of ways (and it obviously helped when you’re more familiar with […]

Packing List Web App

Filed under: Projects — posted by Rob on July 26, 2012

Problem Description When I go to the beach or Atlantic City or Florida or basically any trip, I noticed that I almost always need to pack the same things. I have been perfecting a checklist of things to pack over the past several years, and now I use it whenever I am packing to make […]

Flashcard JS App

Filed under: Projects — posted by Rob on March 17, 2012

A few months ago I created the .NET Flashcard application. It’s been working great for me. The only trouble is I’m not always near my computer when I have time to look through my flash cards. I wanted to be able to access the cards from anywhere – my iPhone, a public computer, etc. This […]

Flashcard .NET Application

I’ve been using Mnemosyne for the past year and a half with a decent amount of success. I like the concept of spaced repetition and believe it to be a legit technique. However, the main content that I have been memorizing is Bible verses, and the spaced repetition doesn’t seem to be working very well. […]

The big project I worked on over the summer is called MiBox. For those of you who know me, you know that I love Dropbox and use it for almost everything. I use it so much that I subscribe to Dropbox Pro to get the 50GB of storage, and then I store my full iTunes […]

Mastermind Solver – and CUDA Versions

Filed under: Projects — posted by Rob on August 1, 2011

I haven’t posted in quite a while, but I haveĀ been coding. This is the first one I am going to post about, but there’s another big one coming probably by the end of the summer. I have become really interested in the board game called Mastermind, and ever since I first played it, I thought […]
