    Raspberry Pi

    A reoccurring curiosity of mine. A few years ago I saw how somebody had a hydroponic garden above a fish 'tank' regulated by a Raspberry computer, but I did not look closer into it. Now I am hoping to actually garden, and I bought chicks. The Raspberry popped up again, could I use that thing...

    Time to work out

    Finding myself supremely unfit, with 2020 2.0 not helping any endeavors to change that and messing with any type of regular schedules. I started to wonder. Now, I have never been an early riser by choice, but 30 years of catering to family who had to, I find myself unable to sleep in most...

    Linux Install

    I seem to come back to this at times, but I am not really into this sort of Frankenstaining my machines. Turn on and run, and I am happy (I lucked out on this whole C64 thing....) SO I have this old laptop that needed some surgery. It's fine now, and turns on, but doe not boot into Windows. I...

    Wireless printer

    I had to buy a new one, as I kill printers with an alarming rate, even before the ink runs dry. Ok, the new machine is an Epson, wireless, (home) office grade with fax, and all the fancy stuff, like sucking the paper back in to print the reverse.... anyhow, How can I set this up so that I can...

    RIP Net Neutrality.

    So Alabama elects a democrat to Senate, and the FCC revokes net neutrality (and Ia m surrounded by people stuck in apathy) It will at bare minimum affect our pocket books, if not throttle our access to content all together. making my way through the tumbleweeds of the study, I found this: 10...

    So long, friend.

    Didn't know the guy long, and only through Facebook. A Navy vet, and player of 'the Great Game', where he sacrificed his health. Self proclaimed autistic, he spend much of his time educating his friends about the finer points of current events. Ian Diverty, you will be missed.

    Sir Terry Pratchett

    With great sadness I heard that one of my literary heroes has passed on. Terry Pratchett had been diagnosed with early onset Alzheimers, a cruel fate for any man, but especially for such a brilliant mind. As it has been put: AT LAST, SIR TERRY, WE MUST WALK TOGETHER. He will be missed.

    Need some help

    Ok, getting ambitious: Library is going to host a little anime cosplay gig. Since they are holding it at the civic center, they are also inviting vendors. Enter me. I am considering going, either with my photo booth equipment (damn the printer that decided to give me the middle finger) or as...

    Old Apple...

    yes, I am just full of questions today ain't I.... The Boys have a really old Apple computer that was donated a year ago, but it's 15 years old by now and recently bit the dust. There was nothing really important on it, I don't even think the roster of the troop, but a ongoing tally of cash on...

    Ok, problem: I have a small Girl Scout troop. The girls are barely old enough to look at the net (my oldest is 14), and the parents are not into letting the girls online (for various reasons) but the content has gotten so net centric, it's driving me nuts. We meet in a church basement. No wifi...

    Chrome Book?

    Looked at a tiny 'laptop' the other day, it would - I think - fulfill my needs for when I travel: 8 1/2 hours of battery life, vs the 2 I get from my current laptop. But the OS has me stumped. It was not mentioned, so I am guessing it's not Windows (not a bad thing, I can do without 8 for the...
