While passwords may seem obsolete in this climate of security threats, websites will continue to ask for login credentials. There’s no getting around it. You will still need to come up with a password for any new logins, you will sometimes have strict password guidelines to follow, and sometimes you’ll even have to change your […]

We’ve just pushed a huge update to our LEAP platform for LEAP 3.6.0. LEAP will work much faster now as we’ve greatly enhanced its speed. We have developed a multi-threaded environment to handle LEAP data asynchronously, allowing for the execution of multiple requests that do not block remaining processes. This will lead our users to […]

I wouldn’t consider myself a geek personally, but I do have an unhealthy obsession with video games and it is one of my largest personal hobbies. I have most every single video game console from NES all the way up to the latest generation. I also modify consoles as a hobby and have converted an […]

I can’t top Sam’s gaming gear, but I noticed that the OpenPandora is a glaring omission in his handheld collection. The OpenPandora is an open source (hardware and software) handheld computer running a custom Linux distro for retro gaming. It is arguably the geekiest handheld gaming device ever. I pre-ordered it and waited years before […]

No disclaimer, I’m just a geek, but maybe just not your average one. Although I gamed in my earlier years and played all the Ultima RPGs (I through IX), I never got into the MMO part because dial-up Internet was insanely expensive and I was simply too poor to join the bandwagon, so I became a […]

I’m a minimalist geek and it seems to leak into most aspects of my life. I’ve been using IRC/SILC and *nix since the 90s. I’ve played with many different operating systems throughout the years from plan9 to histar, but only two have really ever captured a piece of my heart: Gentoo and OpenBSD. If they […]

I have been putting computers together for a quarter of a century. In the beginning, I worked on Atari and 8086 builds. I built my first computer with leftover parts and with a lot of assembly required. I got pretty handy with a dremel though. In the early days, a great deal of time was spent […]

The Geek is Strong With This One! Geekness day is around the corner and we have decided to look inward this year at the employees of SingleHop in search of the head geek. Nearly every employee at SingleHop has a variety of subjects that geek out to. Here are a handful of the honorable mentions: […]

The latest version of LEAP adds IP Whitelist functionality. This functionality allows users to add, edit, or delete IPs through the Dropzone API. As a courtesy, we have imported any IPs that have accessed your account within the past 30 days to this feature for you. You should confirm these IPs and make any modifications […]

We love our loft-style office with its green walls, exposed brick, and rooftop deck in the heart of River North. But it’s just not perfect.  Everyone is split up between two different floors of the building. The elevator is always a gamble on whether or not you’ll make it to your desired floor. The dishwasher […]
