Hello, World

This is officially the first post! How exciting!
Let me start things off by describing the idea behind the creation of Prompt Fu.

We all have spent a vast number of minutes, hours, years, etc. researching various topics in search of a solution to whatever problem we had come across at any given time.

We may find a solution and complete the project, and update its documentation; other times, we may jot down a note and store it some place safe (where did I place my notepad again…), or we may simply forget it and move onto whatever else needing attention. I am guilty of the latter, the latter latter, and on occation, the latter latter latter.

Prompt Fu provides a simple interface, the Markdown lanugage, to share my thoughts and work, and it is OPEN.

Given that open source has been such a huge catalyst in the world of technology and vastly helpul thorughout my career; Prompt Fu offers, for starters, my notes, blogs, wikis, projects, etc. as I continually develop throughout my career and life.

As I, and maybe someday others, share, the opportunity for you to contribute and share your thoughts is available and encouraged! Each blog and wiki should have a comments section found at the bottom of the page. Please, feel free to comment suggesting edits, start discussions, or to let me know the post helped you in your search.

Additionally, wiki posts have an ”improve this post” link which will take you directly to GitHub so you can fork, edit, and pull request to contribute.

With that said, more interesting posts are coming so be sure to check back soon; also be sure to check out the various wikis that include tech tips and command line fu that I have found useful in my everyday - Wiki.

In an attempt to leave you inpired, here are 10 quotes about technology that I thought had a certain je ne sais quoi.

Technology is a word that describes something that doesn’t work yet. — Douglas Adams

Just because something doesn’t do what you planned it to do doesn’t mean it’s useless. — Thomas Edison

One machine can do the work of fifty ordinary men. No machine can do the work of one extraordinary man. — Elbert Hubbard

Communications tools don’t get socially interesting until they get technologically boring. — Clay Shirky

Technology is the campfire around which we tell our stories. — Laurie Anderson

Hardware: the parts of a computer that can be kicked. — Jeff Pesis

Getting information off the Internet is like taking a drink from a fire hydrant. — Mitchell Kapor

Technology is unlocking the innate compassion we have for our fellow human beings.

— Bill Gates

Technology is nothing. What’s important is that you have a faith in people, that they’re basically good and smart, and if you give them tools, they’ll do wonderful things with them. — Steve Jobs

In open source, we feel strongly that to really do something well, you have to get a lot of people involved. — Linus Torvalds

Raspberry Pi: Push-button + Two(2) LEDs that Toggle

Got another simple project here for you!

This project is about adding an additional LED light to the Raspberry Pi: Push-button + One(1) LED post, and having the push-button toggle the LED lights. I used one red and one blue LED.

The desired result, toggle on/off of the two LEDs with the push of a button; if the red light is on then the blue is off, and vice versa.

Let's see how this goes...

How Windows is Useful: Enabling Windows Subsystem for Linux

It ‘twas the morning of July 18, 2019 as I was working on this site; just polishing up a few tidbits, when my 2012 Macbook Pro became quite warm and decided to poweroff, never to return again. About 30 minutes had past while I aimlessly troubleshot, but ultimately I found myself on Apple’s support site scheduling an appointment to have my laptop serviced.
