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 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?

2 New Drones arrived today for our next Drone Flight Training Class. One is a new drone to replace for one lost earlier this week in our Basic Drone Flight Training.

That is the benefit of learning flight and flight maneuvers on in-expensive - disposable drones.

The student then gets a choice on which of the practice drone models they want to take home.

Part of our drone training includes an overview of how to pass the FAA Drone, Recreational or Private Pilot's License as well as a list of schools and resources in their home town - or near.

Military version of Anti-Drone / Drone Defense Courses

https://lnkd.in/gWMnjUTM

As for Computer Dudes' "Civilian" Drone Defense Course we have techniques weapons not know to the military. As the video in the link shows the military has weapons and methods civilians and companies can not use at this time.

Like the military Computer Dudes' Drone Defense course uses a "layered" defense. :)T

Fascinating.
Some of the small WiFi Bridge equipment, with directional antennas, can be used to "jam" or "block" a WiFi router, transmitter, or small area of WiFi service.
It is not a new concept or function - its just the last time we experimented with WiFi jamming the Yagi antenna, transmission, and monitoring equipment weighed several hundred pounds.
Current to 2024 WiFi "Bridge" equipment works off a phone and the antenna's are the size of a tea cup. Cool Stuff! :)T

Only the Computer Dudes dares to bring FPV Simulators and Trainers - to the real world!!

Freestyle - pilot vs pilot and drone vs drone on indoor and outdoor courses.

Our "Dogfight" drone game is the most fun in my experience.

We use the manual controllers but are modding things for VR and Mixed Reality Headset Use.

Dont have a drone yet? Use some of the FPV or other training simulations and instructions on youtube. Have fun! :)T

Why Muon Beams are important - from Fermilab discussion:

Radio Waves and Light(laser) have been mastered as "carrier waves" for audio, video, and data.

What might be the "next" carrier wave? One not blocked by Matter or Time?? ;)T
