We’ve all been in that place where you need a job and you’re out hunting for a good fit, but the days of beating the streets to shake hands with managers and fill out applications in-person are gone. When you walk into a business and ask to fill out a paper application they refer you to their online resource. After filling out the application online, you are simply placed on filtered lists that are ever growing, but this begs the question, are these lists really helping businesses? With this increasingly less humanized approach to recruiting many candidates are lost in the shuffle because a check-box was clicked. Don’t get me wrong, I’m one of the biggest proponents of automation, and improving lives through helpful software, but I believe we are losing a part of our humanity by treating others like ingredients on a menu. Profits tell managers that they’ve done good, and we all understand that businesses are in the market to make money; however, we are all only here because of those around us. It’s vital that we not forget that people are our most important resource. When we forget that, by leaning so heavily on automation and numbers, we lose a sense of what those such as Dale Carnegie tried so desperately to teach us. Coming out from behind our monitors and speaking to people is what being a manager is all about, not being stuck up and reliant on technology to make our decisions for us.

Reflection of Light   The Interest I was playing a game of chess 2D style on a tablet and it just seemed so 1980’s. While thinking of my next move the wheels in my head began turning and I started to think that there has to be another way to make this game more robust. If I took what I already know about programming could I make a program that was truly 3D? Probably not, right? Well, maybe, just maybe I could… Considering the following: R = IR / II and T = IT / II Where R + T = 1 Granted, this is nothing more than technically describing what we see when light transmits or reflects off of the given surface but it still led me to think that everything that we see is nothing more than what we think we see because we are slaves to our visual ports. Could we not then use a bit of optic tricks and tell our brains that we are seeing something that may or may not be there? I’m thinking so but it will take a bit more work to properly bring this idea to fruition. Consider the idea that light is really nothing more than what we (or our minds) make of it. Again, referencing to the video above, if someone is color blind then what they witness is limited by their faculties. Therefore, if we can fool our sensory gates into seeing in 3D than 3D does exist. The trick is utilizing optics to our advantage. After taking apart numerous devices which utilize lasers I have been working on the math which is giving way to the theory of a self-terminating beam which will give the illusion of a termination point in space. Thus, providing to the viewer that a “wall” or viewing screen is there when in reality it is not. Much of the basis for this is utilizing a series of lasers to cancel out the signals at a point of intersection which gives way to the viewing screen effect. With this hypothesis statement being made now comes the fun part of trying to get these things to really happen. Like the old saying, “After all that’s said and done there’s a lot more said than done.” I think a bit of rolling up the shirt sleeves would be in order. If we apply the priciple of superposition when the two laser beams meet a stationary wave is formed. This is because of the nodes and anti nodes. The nodes are like points when there is zero vertical displacement of light while anti nodes occur when there are four times the intensity of a normal laser. Laser talk can blab on forever about it’s properties and such but more to the point really is that you can only have time-averaged cancellation if the two waves are traveling in the same direction. If the waves are traveling at angles, they will continue on unaffected after passing each other. You can only have time-averaged, overall cancellation (as opposed to transient, instantaneous cancellation at specific points in time and/or space) if the waves are 180 degrees out of phase at all times. However, this is not possible for waves traveling in different directions. The waves might be perfectly out of phase at a frozen moment in time: Utlimately, when two lasers meet at one point (no matter what the angle 180, 90, 45, etc) it doesn’t do much to the naked eye. However, when matter is present at the crossing point, very interesting effects can happen, especially if we’re talking about femtosecond pulses meeting in a non-linear crystal. For the purposes of my experiement I will be using various materials at the point of intersection to create various 3D affects. I have worked on a lot more than what is on this page but this does communicate the basic heuristic. As time moves forward I will continue to put more information on this page as I complete the given phases of my project/experiement, then I will make those things a bit more presentable and then I will post them here in some sort of video format, tutorial or the like.   Summary of Downloads & Extra Links Getting Help The Principle of Holographs My Project Downloads Definition of holograph Links I found Helpful Holograms and their Applications Great Laser Saftey Tips

Background This project began because of a few factors. One of the big factors was that I have two small boys at the house. My wife mentioned to me that I should keep my office door locked so the boys don’t get in the office and get hurt on something in there. So, my goal was to come up with a techy way to lock the office and keep things consistant with my nerdy inventor theme. When I was about 10 I remember Star Trek The Next Generation (TNG) was one of my favorite shows and my fondness was actually kick started again by a fellow co-worker of mine. He would bring his Star Trek DVD’s to work and on some nights he would come to work dressed in his full Star Trek uniform! At first that seems really funny but he was very intelligent and I never minded having a conversation with him. As time went on I thought it would be a kick to skin my security touch-pad door system using the TNG look, style and feel. My research for artistic insight got me watching the show again and I had a lot of fun revisiting some childhood moments. I was able to capture the TNG skin for my door panel and so I know have a TNG door touch-pad locking the office!   Summary of Downloads & Extra Links   Helpful links Adge’s Star Trek LCARS Terminal Page LCARS DesktopX Theme LCARS X32

Getting anything done for free these days takes a bit of working. Lets follow some steps to see if what worked for me can work for you as well. Step 1. Power your phone up and act like you are going to make a call. Type in *#06# your IMEI number will appear on the screen. Copy that down somewhere.   Step 2. You need to retrieve your BlackBerry device’s MEP code. To do this you need to open up your “OS Engineering Screen”. On the main menu screen of your BlackBerry press down ATL+Shift+H (for help) at the same time.   Step 3. Go to OS Engineering Screens > Device Info.   Step 4. Scroll down under the SW Parts List and you will find your MEP. In my case it was MEP-04104-007. Take this number down. You will need it.   Step 5. Download this BlackBerry MEP generator and fire it up. You simply select from the drop down menu which MEP you have (such as mine above MEP-04104-007 from steps 2 – 4) then you type in your IMEI number in the appropriate textbox and click on “Calculate”.   Step 6. Back to your BlackBerry’s main menu screen go to Options > Device > Advanced System Settings > SIM Card.   Step 7. Type in MEPD. No typing will appear on the screen as you do this. Once that is typed your screen list will expand and you will be able to see the following (or similar): Personalization: SIM Network Network Subset Service Provider Corporate Each of these settings in the phone represent a Mobile Equipment Personalization (MEP). Each of these can be locked and if that’s the case you will have to select each one and unlock them. Your unlock code will be between 10 and 16 numbers long. For better clarification, the above is what you will see along with whether it is active or disabled. Like so: Personalization: SIMDisabled NetworkActive Network SubsetDisabled Service ProviderDisabled CorporateDisabled The “Active” and “Disabled” are not bolded on your phone as they are all smooshed into the other word. You will understand once you see it on your screen. Please note, each of the five personalizations are a different MEP. For instance, Personalization: MEP1 = SIMDisabled MEP2 = NetworkActive MEP3 = Network SubsetDisabled MEP4 = Service ProviderDisabled MEP5 = CorporateDisabled Each phone has 5 MEP’s that can be locked. In my case, T-Mobile only locked MEP2 and so I only needed to input the 1 code which unlocked the phone.   Step 8. Now from your MEP generator you can select one of the MEP codes that match what is Actively locked. For instance, the following codes is what will be presented in your generator screen: IMEI: 353039043459297 MEP: MEP_04104_007 ————————– MEP Codes: MEP1 :4486467426976036 MEP2 :7603376453602214 MEP3 :1577369485260306 MEP4 :8051453218862502 MEP5 :7845777045561355 ————————– Codes Successfully Done. So if MEP2 = NetworkActive is what is locked or showing active on your phone, you would select MEP2 :7603376453602214 from the generator as your code to enter.   CAUTION: BlackBerry only allows you to try a MEP code up to 10 times and then it will permanently lock on you and you will not be able to unlock that phone. Please make sure you type things in correctly. Step 9. To input your code scroll over the MEP you wish to unlock and type in MEP2 or the letters M E P and then the number 2 (alt+e). This will bring up the screen for you to place your MEP code. It should display that the code was accepted and you’re go to go! Enjoy your unlocked phone.
