USB Armory LED Control
The USB Armory comes with a nice little LED on board. In the default Debian image, it is set up to blink based on CPU usage. To control it manually, take the following steps:
USB Armory USB mass storage and ethernet
The default image for the USB Armory defaults to using the g_ether driver to provide an ethernet device to the host. However, that does not give you a USB mass storage device. The alternative is to
modrpobe -r g_ether and
modprobe g_mass_storage file=/path/to/block/device, but that leaves you without ethernet, and thus without a method of communicating with the armory.
I just got my newest toy: the USB Armory by Inverse Path. Rather then me tell you about it, I’ll let the creators do that:

A number of recent news stories and podcasts I have listened to proclaim its usefulness in keeping a healthy mind and body. However, not everyone sees it like that yet. Many see it as some Buddhist exercise that’s not relevant their Christian/Jewish/Muslim/Atheist belief system. This could not be further from the truth; in fact, your religion (or lack thereof) is completely irrelevant to the benefits you can gain from it.
Media for 2015
As 2015 gets under way, I want to give my readers an idea of where I like to get my news and entertainment. As you might notice, many of these are podcasts. Podcasts are great because I can listen to them while walking between classes.
About this blog
Since this will partially be a technical blog, I want to spend some time talking about this blog. I wrote an overview for the about page, so go there if you want a really quick overview.
Welcome to 2015
Another year passes, and another blog begins.
To start off 2015, and finally get this blog going, here are my new years resolutions. I haven’t really done these in the past, so this is a bit new. However, I think it is important to have a number of goals and expectations for myself in the new year.
