Admit it. You are secretly one of the four guys in this photo. That's really the only explanation I can come up with why you created a palm tree monitor.

I did because I could, but really I'm interested in the next 'BIG' thing in IT and that is the Internet of Things (IoT), so was looking for something challenging that I could 'internet' and my Palm Trees seemed up to the challenge. The next thing was to cover off ways we used to connect, email, web server, client server and make those work and then connect via twitter and do it all with the same device at the same time with a $30 mainboard (and no soldering).

So am I one of 'those' guys, yep I'm probably Sheldon who somehow ended up marrying Penny, except now its 30 years later and he has Grand Kids.
