Building the "Gordo-48" and "fitting it all together."

A Gordo-48 replaces 40 standard Servers but uses less than 500 Watts in an hour.

A standard Server uses around 500 Watts, times 40 Servers = 20,000 Watts per hour. You do the math. - Todd W. Byars, Computer Dudes, Tallahassee, Florida

"The existence of a polynomial-time quantum algorithm proves that one of the most widely used cryptographic protocols is vulnerable to an adversary who possesses a quantum computer. However, it is theoretically accepted that quantum computers could equally be used to counteract against adversarial actions of this kind with the laws of quantum mechanics applied in this cryptographic capacity (through use of quantum computers) paving the way to quantum cryptography."

Our "Gordo-24" is a "Quantum Computer" that can be configured for non-standard computing. ;)T

Nice Try Iran. You hacked one level of passwords on one of our servers but got locked out due to the geographic location of your servers.
Next time, mask your IP number. Don't be too embarrassed, we busted China with the same trick over a year ago. ;)T

Computer Dudes SEO

on 18 Jun 2019  Posted by Administrator  Category: Technology  

The Computer Dudes deploy an SEO method that adapts to the ever changing Google Ranking system. Some things always stay constant in the world of SEO though like Keywords, Quality Content, and Backlinks.

Before you even start editing or making a site, you should know what your keywords should be to get the most traffic for your business or service. A tool we often utilize here is the Google Keyword Planner.

Quality content can take time to create, but it is easy to make good content if you save all your advertising and marketing pieces and simplify move those for your website. Make sure to add a few keywords, but this is a great way to add new content to your site often.

Backlinks are links on other websites that link back to your site. The Quality of a Backlink is determined by how high that site's SEO is. The quality and Quantity of Backlinks are very important to your SEO. Two easy ways to create backlinks are  by engaging in blogs and linking people to your website or Social Media links to your website.

Other factors such as how fast your site loads, your site's structure, meta description, and alt tags affect your google rank as well. These factors have more to do with the code and server health that once set up correctly could result in a large SEO boost for your site.

3d Printing Rocket Raccoon

on 18 Jun 2019  Posted by e107  Category: Technology

Today at The Computer Dudes we printed a model of Rocket Raccoon from Guardians of the Galaxy.  The model printed wonderfully on our modded Creality Ender 3 Pro 3D printer.  All we had to do was click print.  However, it was not always such a simple task.  I will share with you some of the lessons learned about how to get a quality print.

First, some Technical Specifications:

Printer:  Ender 3 pro w/ Creality Glass Bed

Hatchbox PLA 1.75mm various colors

Bed temp 65C Extruder temp 205C

.1 layer height with .6mm nozzle .72mm line width

50mm/s print speed, 8 jerk and 300 acceleration

20% infill

sliced in cura 4.1.0 with raft and full supports

Now, the lessons learned.

1. All guide wheels should be TIGHT.  Make sure the cam bolts for the bed, extruder, x-axis, and hotend are all set where the guide wheels are snug in their v-grooves. Take your time with assembly and double-check all work.

2. The printer frame should be as square as possible.  All attachment bolts should be tight

3. The print bed needs to be as level as possible.  If you're using a glass bed, up the bed temp to 65C for excellent print adhesion.

4. Larger nozzle sizes need more heat and slower print speeds

5. The Ender 3 Pro stepper motors are not strong enough to toss the glass bed around with impunity... lower print acceleration to 250-300mm/s.

6. Drive belts should be TIGHT.  There are tensioners that can be printed for the Ender 3 Pro on thingiverse.com and they work very well.  The creator printed his in PETG but I was able to print in PLA with a .4 layer height and .8 nozzle and have sufficent strength for the part to do the job.

7. it's ok if your supports get stringy, really

8. A bedleveling model that prints thin squares saves a lot of frustration when trying to fine tune the bed level.

9. Be patient when the print completes.  Allow the bed to cool and the print will lift off with minimal effort.

I hope this information allows the reader to avoid some of the gremlins we chased here at The Computer Dudes.
