Long time ….

Been a while since I made a post on my own website.  While I can say it was due to work, I was posting stuff to FB.  No problem.  Time to return to the real world.

Time to get my projects of the drawing board and into reality.

Life after Irmaria

So much on my mind, but don’t know what to say.

My life after IrMaria is to be determined……

Veranda to dish….

On June 20th, I took the step to self reliance and purchased an vertical aeroponics system from Al Henry [] a local(USVI) hydroponics system maker and this weekend harvested the first of many produce.

Here is the system



Plants are :

Thyme & Oregano
Collard Greens
Onions (Scallions)
Sweet Marjoram
Swiss Chard
Mustard (Greens)
Lemon Grass


This is a time lapse of the system(click on image to start animation):

And the resulting meal that used produce from the system.

Day 0001 of Donald J. Trump as POTUS

My name is Stanford Mings.
I am a survivor living in St. Thomas, USVI
I am broadcasting on all Social Media.
I will be at the Lindquist Beach (now called Smith Bay Beach)
some days at sometime…
… when the sun is highest in the sky.
If you are out there…
If anyone is out there…
I can provide food.
I can provide warm weather.
I can provide beer.
If there’s anybody out there…
… anybody…
You are not alone.

90 hacker friendly boards

Our New Year’s guide to hacker-friendly single board computers turned up 90 boards, ranging from powerful media playing rigs to power-sipping IoT platforms.

Community backed, open spec single board computers running Linux and Android sit at the intersection between the commercial embedded market and the open source maker community. Hacker boards also play a key role in developing the Internet of Things devices that will increasingly dominate our technology economy in the coming years, from home automation devices to industrial equipment to drones.
