I am Egidijus.
I have designed and built 2.4 Ghz cantennas modeled with 4nec2, I have also hosted a rather unsuccessful internet radio station around 2005 with icecast. I have written a guide on how to unlock “free” ADSL router.
On this website I will document some of the things I have done, for your entertainment or education.
List of things:
- I enjoy “doodling” with 3D modeling applications, my preferred is Softimage XSi. I began many years ago with Bryce 4, then moved to 3D Max – lots of Sci-Fi models later I got hooked on XSi, this is some of what survived after my hard disk failures.
- I grew up playing computer games, and I have organised PC multi-player gaming events (up to a dozen people or so). I would be in charge of refreshments, logistics, connectivity, and the setup of game servers. For example, with Counter-Strike I would install the service on a Windows workstation, then I would install addons which would extend management controls and add features like statistics or different game-play modes and lastly the server would be tuned for optimal performance.
I have also installed and setup much more complicated MMORPG servers like TrinityCore , this was compiled and installed on Ubuntu server with MySQL database.
- I have planned, designed and implemented Windows/VMware environments for businesses and planned backup strategies based around Acronis.
- I have also worked with amazon web services as part of a team to launch a facebook application that utilized automatic scaling, ssl load balancer terminators, amazon rds, and wowza encoding server.
- I have setup, managed, migrated and recovered PHPBB (forum), Simple Machines Forum, My Client Base (now Fusion Invoice), OpenCart (open source eCommerce), PHPshopscript (eCommerce), WordPress, to name a few.
- I enjoy making things, I designed and built this box which I made from salvaged bits, then I hacked together a battery pack for an MP3 player so the battery would last four days of continuous play.
- Here is a picture of me tweaking and fixing the Pedigree Play Again ball launcher at an event. Promotional Video
- I really enjoy cycling, for commuting and leisure. To record some of my journeys I bought a cheap 808 camera from ebay , but I found the stock battery to be really crappy (about 30 minutes). I decided to improve the camera by soldering on a battery from my old Nokia 3310 mobile phone. It charges, it works, the battery lasts around 1 hour and 30 minutes.
- 2.4 Ghz Cantenna, modeled in 4nec2. This was made from a toilet brush holder, 2.5mm copper wire and an N-Type connector. The gain according to 4nec2 should be around 29.7 dBi , it performed fantastically. If you are interested in how – ping me.
- I go to DC4420.
