Computer Dudes prepares for Summer

on 18 Apr 2023  Posted by CorpRattX  Category: Technology  Comments: 0

Ah Summer,

Unless you are at the beach - your business may slow in the Summer.

Many companies lay off employees during slow times but not Computer Dudes.    We just plan and make sure everyone uses some of their paid vacation time.

We will be continuing our research projects on LIDAR, AI, Outdoor Supercomputers, and Data Center Efficiency year round.   

Yes - we do have room for more clients!.

However unless you are on our client list, you will need to call and qualify.   
It is not a sales scam - just tightened security.     We went to a private client list several years ago to improve security for all clients.

Fondest Regards,

So you want to be a Computer Dude?

The word / expression "Dude" is not a reference to being male, female, or whatever, it is a designation of "Skill Level."

When we go surfing - anyone rated "Dude" just means they have the skill to surf safely, do stunts; and did not have to be watched by
the others for group safety..   :)Todd


This is what a "Computer Dude" needs to know to work with one of my companies.in 2023.


Dude Basic Skills - 2023

Can you setup a Single Board Computer (SBC), such as the Raspberry Pi 4B (RPI), to boot off USB 3.1 or faster?
Can you setup a RPI to run in 64 Bit Mode?
Can you setup a RAMDISK on the RPI to run the OS?
Can you setup a RPI as an Apache Web Host?
Can you setup an MySQL or other SQL database on a RPI?
Can you setup a basic HTML only Website?
Can you convert a CSV document to an SQL Database and back again?

Computer Dude Advanced Skills:

Can you cluster RPI's?
Can you load VMware ESXi on a RPI, AMD or INTEL chipsets?

Computer Dudes Jedi level skills:

Can you identify the chipsets and overclock an RPI or change its functions?
Can you run Aircrack and John the Ripper on RPI? In cluster mode with RPI? Custom rules and Dictionary?
Can you virtualize Droid and Mac operating systems?
Can you setup an RPI as a Router or Virtual Router Cluster?
Can you encrypt data from an HTML or other Web Form before it leaves the workstation and before it enters the database?

Computer Dudes Yoda level skills:

Can you build and manage a large VMware Sphere with active routing and active scanning VMware bots and servers?
Can your servers automatically respond to an attack?
Can you create or work with encryption that is non-standard and to higher quality and security than a current computer encryption no matter what the OS?

The 3 Keys to Safe Social Media - Including: Meta (Facebook), LinkedIn, Twitter, Google and all the rest. :)

CDudes_JPG_Logo_for_Art_2020.jpg

The problem with Facebook and other Social Media is not the Algorithm, the extremists, or the hackers - it is the Lack of a "KEYs. "

Three KEYs are needed: better Architecture, better Filters, and a new type of KEY, we will call a "Facts Table." (more on that below)

First Key is better Architecture.

Second Key is better Filters

Third Key is to create a "Facts Table" 

A facts table, to let those undecided see both sides; minus the falsehoods or political spin. To appeal to both sides and let everyone cool off with a little reality.  This "Third Key," a "Facts Table," briefly expresses both sides of an argument, or topic, or keyword: but is filtered for spin and misrepresentations.

The 3 Keys to safe, secure, social media in 2021.

Gordo-8: A Systems and Pricing Review

on 19 Aug 2021  Posted by CorpRattX  Category: Technology  Comments: 2
20210813_181855.jpg

The Computer Dudes, Inc's research on Single Board Computers, SBC's, began in the 1990s.   SBC's use very little electricity.  In the 1990s SBC's were only used for traffic signs and such.  The first SBC Computer Dudes used was a 80846.

For the last 3 years we have developed and are in production with the Gordo-8 and Gordo-12 Series.   The number beside the name indicates how many computers are in the cluster.  
The Gordo Series uses a round core which allows for many motherboards to be run in a cluster or as separate servers. 

Gordo-8 Base Configuration

Node Zero: Control Node
Node One: Apache Server
Node Two:  Samba 4 Server with 1 Tb SSD, USB 3.1
Node Three:  Samba Node (controlled by Samba4 Server)
Node Four: Raspberrian Server or Workstation
Node Five: Backup Server for Files, Data and Video
Node Six:  CUPS / Print Server
Node Seven:  Routing and Security Server

Base Pricing


Gordo-8 Monolithic Solar:  $9,750

Gordo-8 Standard plug in / indoor version:  $5,750

The Cloud Failed. "I came to bury it, not praise it." The solution to hacking and ransomware is - Virtualization and Hardware Based clustering.

on 03 Jul 2021  Posted by CorpRattX  Category: Technology  Comments: 0
New_T_Shirt_Logo_2017.png

The Cloud FAILED and is now an Obsolete Architecture.    You can quote me on that if you like:  Todd W. Byars,  July 1, 2021

All Clouds should be replaced immediately with a hardware based solutions and FULL Virtualization.   Modern, real time, incremental backups are recommended too.

How to Implement a Switch from Clouds to Hardware Clusters running full Virtualization:

  • Create Transition Plan to move from Clouds to Hardware Clusters.    VMware is our primary recommendation.  VMware in Command Line Interface, CLI, without all the GUI controls, gauges and services.
  • Select Micro-ITX or smaller motherboard computers that run cool or even fanlessly. Select Linux Load (preferred) or Windows Load or Other Load Procedure
  • Build Hardware, Setup and Test with Dummy Loads and Dummy Database.  After burn in and load testing run your pentesting and QA
  • Migrate Data to new Hardware Based Clustering.
  • Test, Run Live, Stress Test, PenTest and verify those backups.
  • Turn Clouds Off.

This problem is LARGE and GLOBAL.  So, The Computer Dudes, Inc and I, once again, GIVE you the procedure to use and share.   

It is for everyone, everywhere, including our competition who we consider as brothers and sisters in IT rather than competition.  So PLEASE SHARE!  

Who's your pal?  ;)  Todd

Computer Dudes roll out License Plate Recognition, LPR, 8MP+ All weather day and night camera systems.

We are starting in the Smaller cities and Rural Areas where they have not even seen this technology.

Big cities and big companies as well as law enforcement and military already have such cameras.

Pricing to the public is INSANE so we found affordable - dependable versions of that type camera.

Todd :)

Well ISN'T that a Kick in the Pants.

Several of the fake profiles and criminal type hackers were identified and logged the last few days.

This morning - the company that employed them - SENT ME A HIRE REQUEST!!

Freaking Hilarious. They did their research yesterday - found out I really am heading to Washington DC and my contacts there.

BTW the hire request - got Ghosted.

Never contact or work for a dishonest company engaged in attacks on people for financial gain, fraud, or computer hacking.

Even if I did reply - the answer would have been NO.

This is one of the funniest things we have seen since before Computer Dudes became a company way back around 1997.

Still laughing. :)T

Big Changes Coming Soon - this will become an employee owned company.

My gift to you, the loyal, the kind, the strong, the brave - The Computer Dudes.

As you know our company has no debt and has never issued stock.

Just our holding will make the new owners wealthy - without issuing stock.

95% of the people reading this have no idea what that means for the employees and how it will increase their networth at the sign-over.

I will be around but I will also be traveling and taking some personal time to spend with friends and family.

If you work for Computer Dudes, and were loyal and kind, you are already wealthy.

Iran attacked Israel tonight - the world came very close to a N War.

Most Americans and other people on the planet don't even know it happened. :(
