I have just finished my preliminary look at a BeeLink mini computer I recently acquired. The specific model is the Ser6 Max-E-321. And let me say right at the start, there are a few issues with this offering that some might consider deal breakers. (more…)
In this post I will be reviewing the OpenBox Window Manager (WM). Over the past few months I have spent a significant amount of time installing, working with, configuring, and theming the OpenBox WM. I feel that because of this experience, I am now in a position to review the ins and outs of this particular WM. (more…)
I have been remiss in reviewing my ARLO system. The version I have has been in place for many years, and has gone through several updates and upgrades.

I decided to look into improving my video productions (not that I am doing a lot of them). To this end I picked up something called the “Like Me Vlogging Kit” by Digipower. (more…)
Electronic Arts (EA) has released their new game app to replace Origins. Recently it has become mandatory. Many a gamer has found themselves staring at the upgrade screen with no other options. And as it turns out, as bad as the Origins app was, the EA app, in many ways is even worse.
