Kicking for a cure

Kick for Cures 2012 is an event to collect donations that gets distributed to many charities. This year, my friend’s two kids are participating in the event. Their goal is $500 USD, however I heard last week that their instructor will give $100 USD to them if they reach $1,000 USD. If you can help out that is greatly appreciated.

Donate to Jenna & Nick Cannella!

Thanks everyone!

Bluecherry Releases Version 2.0

My friends over at Bluecherry have released version 2.0 of their video surveillance software as well as version 2.0 of their server software. If you are in the market for a video surveillance solution, I wouldn’t look any further than Bluecherry. Their dedication to utilizing as well as contributing to the open source world make them my favorite solution.

From my personal experience, the system is pretty damn slick. The server uses MySQL and Apache to store configuration settings as well as to give a web interface to your surveillance system. On top of that, they also offer a nice GUI client built with Qt4. The system supports all type of cameras and they even have their own video capture cards with an open source driver. Oh, did I mention that they have ready-made packages for Ubuntu and/or Debian? I have it running on my Kubuntu 12.04 system flawlessly, though I don’t have any cameras yet, so I just check it out with their Test configuration. Maybe one of these days my house will be under video surveillance.

Head on over to their website, links above, and check out their products, services, and their growing community! Kudos to my friends at Bluecherry!

Donate To My Tour de Cure 2012 Ride

Hey everyone, I am riding 100 miles (161 km) for Chicago’s 2012 Tour de Cure. My goal this year is to raise $1,500, because last year I was blown out of the water by the generosity of the people at my mom’s work, the KDE community, the cycling community, and a few friends. So, if 300 of you donated the minimum $5, I would make my goal ๐Ÿ™‚ Last year I had a blast doing this ride and completed it in 6.5 hours. My other goal this year is to finish it in under 6 hours.

To donate, you can click on the Support image above, or go to my Tour de Cure page. Scroll down, and on the right hand side you will see “CLICK HERE TO SPONSOR ME”, click it. I appreciate any and all help!
