In this post, I discuss the process of converting an older single network interface Intel NUC mini-PC into a state-of-the-art pfSense firewall behind which I’ve placed my entire network. The whole process takes about 10 minutes and is accomplished by configuring two VLANs.
In this post, I show how to measure the bandwidth using SpeedTest.net directly from the pfSense GUI.
The following article explains the steps necessary to enable external access to pfSense GUI using a Dynamic DNS domain from DuckDNS.org. [Read more…]

Recently I came across an issue while building ANN with TensorFlow 2.0, where IntelliJ complained about not being able to load the dynamic library ‘cudart64_100.dll’. The below instructions outline the approach for fixing the issue and would apply also to errors that refer to other NVIDIA GPU Computing Toolkit dynamic libraries, such as cufft64_100.dll, cufftw64_100.dll, cuinj64_100.dll, nppig64_100.dll, nppim64_100.dll, nppist64_100.dll, nppisu64_100.dll, nppitc64_100.dll, npps64_100.dll, nppif64_100.dll, nppia164_100.dll or nppicc64_100.dll, all of which are part of the older version of CUDA platform for general computing on graphical processing units (GPUs) developed by NVIDIA .

Windows 10 auto restart after the update is somewhat of an annoyance and Microsoft is well aware of the user resentment.

Over the past 20+ years, my family took tens of thousands of photos while visiting countries all around the world. As the years went by, the total number of stored images seems to grow every time we travel and even though we organize our images, sometimes it’s hard to recall when (exactly which year and month) we visited a specific place. Thinking about it, I realized that nowadays most photos are captured on smartphones or digital cameras that come equipped with GPS and automatically geotag each photo with GPS coordinates, as well as date and time of each image capture. That said, it shouldn’t be hard to convert the Exif information stored inside photo meta-data into easily readable Excel Travel Log, or too complicated to create a Google Map of all places I ever visited.
