Hello, my name is Zack. Welcome to my little slice of the Internet.

I work in the information technology industry.

Most of the content on this site is related to my hobby projects. I am not sure if there is any real theme to the site other then that.

I think it was late in 2010 when I decided I wanted a place online to keep track of some of my hobbies and projects so an early version of this site was born. Then on May 24, 2013, I purchased the domain voltdrift.com.

Friends have asked me what voltdrift means or why I picked that. There is no real meaning behind it. I just thought it sounded cool and it was available. At the time I was doing a lot of electronics projects so maybe I just had volts on the brain. :)

I do not use facebook so do not try to contact me there. But I will be happy to accept communications by e-mail or phone!

Recent Projects:

Arduino fridge and Web Torrents

I needed a way to control the temperature in a fridge in order to hibernate my son's ant farm. Buying a fridge with this ability was going to be expensive so instead, we let an Arduino control the temperature for us.

I have also been playing around with web torrents for streaming video. The video above is using what I have learned so far.

OpenGL and Game Engine

I decided to learn how to use OpenGL from scratch with no libraries. Just good old C++ code and my bare hands! So far I think it has turned out well.
