Hello, and welcome to my corner of the internet. I'm Nathan Hinkle, an Chemical Engineering student, computer technician, and outdoor enthusiast from the Pacific Northwest. If you'd like to know more about me, head over to the about page. Below you'll find quick-links to some of my recent blog posts on my own site. Feel free to drop me a line if you have any comments or questions.
I haven't been posting much on my blog here lately, but have written some rather popular blog posts elsewhere on the internet, including a series on replacing your optical drive with a hard drive caddy, an explanation of how your computer knows if it has an internet connection, and the most comprehensive and scientific bike light review on the internet. Check out all of my posts on the Super User Blog and elsewhere from the links in the left side panel.
