recently I got the girls hooked up with a raspberry pi 3 for each of them. I initially tried out the original pi’s and they took to them quickly. ( i was very excited.) so they have recently been updated to the 3rd version and are making amazing things in mindcraft. I have been slowly introducing terminal commands to them and will add more over time. Nothing crazy, just simple little lines for making sure the OS is up-to-date.
So that is the main thing to report. We have access to some amazing technology, I want them to experience as much as they can.
I wanted to make a quick post over here about a new phone I obtained. This is new to me and a refurb’ed unlocked device. While the moto x pure is at a very good price by itself that means the refurb version is even a sweeter deal.
So far, very happy with the device and loving the reduced bloat ware and very close to stock android build. Keep an eye out and you can pick one up at a very reasonable price.
I am not going to go over all the items about the phone, there are plenty of reviews online that can help.
Here are just a few of the key items I like about the phone so far:
– TurboPower charger
– micro SD card for additional storage (go with the base model and max out the external storage.)
– Use Smart Lock (fantastic)
Get rid of useless bloatware (a great plus!)
So there you have it a few things about the new phone.
Oh BTW…as you see above I moved to t-mobile. I am a man of his word and I had it with V when they take credit for the amazing network and than blame someone else when there is an issue. recently there was an outage in my area and so many V reps blamed someone else. You use the equipment, stand behind it. Sick and tired of finding someone else to blame. (stepping off soap box.)
If you come to a page and have music playing…here is a quick way to turn that off.
1) Go to chrome://flags in a new tab
2) Search for the ‘Enable tab audio muting UI control’ flag
3) Hit the ‘Enable’ link
4) Relaunch Chrome when prompted
I went to log into my web sites the other day and poof…error after error. Ugh, what to do? I went down all the normal paths…database, passwords, etc.
Well I looked to my backups and everything appeared correct so I had data to move back too…but why? I had planned on a “pivot” of my blogs for some time and this might be the hint to make that now and not later.
So on all of my blogs I am starting over with a new focused direction and great content to provide. This will include new links to other networks as well. So I hope you stick around and follow me on this exciting new path.
