"It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something." -- Franklin D. Roosevelt
About DigiFAIL.comWelcome to DigiFAIL, the personal site of Tom Nardi, better known on the Internet as MS3FGX. This site is a collection of things I thought there was a chance people might find interesting. Be it Bash scripts, guides, information on hardware I have, projects I am working on, or even the projects that have miserably failed.
Which brings us to the name of the site itself. DigiFAIL stands for Digital Failure, which I believe is a fairly good description for many (but, thankfully, not all) of the things I work on. Not that the concept or execution of these projects are necessarily flawed, but rather I have a tendency to take on too many projects at once and by the time I get back to something, the idea is often not quite as appealing as I once thought it was. It is this charming character trait that lead me to create DigiFAIL and document the things I am working on, in hopes that the information I have collected and work I have done even on partially completed projects will serve somebody out there on the Internet. It may be that something I got bored with is exactly the starting point that another intrepid hacker has been looking for. That's the idea, anyway...
If you have any thoughts, comments, or questions about this site or the information and projects it contains, please don't hesitate to contact me. I always like to hear from people who have found my work online, and may have even gotten some use out of it.
General InformationThis site was written 100% by hand in a combination of vim and (when things got really wild) Geany. When I decided to make this site I had absolutely no knowledge of HTML or CSS, and in about 3 weeks I had created more or less the site you are viewing now. I mainly did this by throwing a bunch of bits and pieces together and experimenting with it until I broke something. As far as I know the site works properly on current versions of Firefox, Opera, Chrome, and Internet Explorer. If you have problems, and especially if you know how to fix them, please let me know.
