The Blog in Blognasium
This is the same blog software I use for the blog in RD's workshop . I's a purchased program but I am permitted to install as many times as I desire. This is the newest version. I have been using it (earlier versions) for at least five years, maybe longer. Very good blog software and works within the Joomla CMS structure. In this location It is open for anyone to register and start their own blog. Probably not going to happen anytime soon. I realize Bognasium is rather obscure. Doesn't bother me, but I would like to eventually see other users get involved. I bought it for the RD Workshop and this is a free secondary use of the software. The same goes for the discussion area. I am evaluating that for use with my eCommerce sites. It is a good system to communicate with my customers. I use one-on-one...
One of the big issues faced on the Internet is security. There are many variations of privacy invasion. Most actions are invisible and the only evidence is after it happens. So the defense has to be pro-active. Passwords are the first line of defense. The hacker assumes the identity of the victim using stolen (acquired) or guessed passwords. Then has full access, the same as the victim. Unless the hacker is at the computer or has installed software on your computer to monitor your keystrokes, he would have to be monitoring somewhere in the middle of the communications route. Since a path may use dozens of computer links, the hacker can be the owner of any one of them. This is called “The man in the middle” hacking. The defense for that is to use encryption to encode all transmissions. This is what HTTPS does. Here at Blognasium, we have...
My creative interest is with three-dimensional art, turned into three-dimensional tangible items. This includes my lost wax silver casting (jewelry) using CNC for wax carving, decorative dimensional wood carving using a CNC overhead router, and three-dimensional printing (another CNC process) using the fused filament process. These require the use of a computer to develop the three-dimensional image. The image is then used to produce the computer code that drives the CNC machines. Initial hand sketches establish the general idea but the most effort goes into the detailed drawings made on the computer. The art for CNC is all digital. I have several programs I use to create the drawings. Rhinoceros / RhinoCAM is a powerful drawing, drafting and CNC tool I have used for many years. My second strong resource is Vectric Aspire . Recently I have been experimenting with Autodesk FUSION 360 . Fusion 360 is free for non-commercial...
