2021-04-20 | IT Prepper | Your Own Work

One thing that has always been in the back of my mind for years, ever since I first started with computers back in 1980, was the idea that I could work on my projects, write, code, etc. far away from the business of civilization. Back in the early eighties, this meant portable power, and I would look at inverters. I remember thinking that a small, battery-powered TV might work, and I looked at the ones at Jafco, where I spent much of my time, second only to Radio Shack.

At one point I breadboarded an early version of my homebrew Z-80 computer while living in the cabin, powering my project with an Arco solar panel and a motorcycle battery, illuminated by an Aladdin oil lamp.

That idea still appeals to me. Because of this, everything I create can be run without an internet connection. It is something to consider, though. Think of your own life. Your phone likely is your connection to your ideas, and most of the apps are useless without your provider and the internet. This area of SysAdminTools is also meant to provide for that. Perhaps I'll roam in Betty one day, or perhaps I'll live in a cabin again.
