Sometimes the best way to find out how well X will work is to give X a try and see!
Making websites load lickety-split! Combining what I’ve learned with a Geo DNS setup and an Anycast setup into a comparison.
The down side to some of these cheap-yet-complex devices is that if you lose the manual and can’t find one online, your garbage bag often ends up with an extra item in it.
Looking at 2 of the lowest-cost contenders for Geo DNS. Which should you choose? I spent the money and spent the hours of set-up time so you don’t have to!
The workarounds to get nginx running over IPv6 on a fresh install changed a little in Ubuntu 18.04.
Intel integrated graphics is a “slow potato” you say? Fair enough. But let’s try to make this slow potato as fast as we can.
The Inspiron 5570 didn’t come with an IPS panel as an option. But can we put in an IPS panel for… another model…? (admittedly a bad teaser – obviously the answer is yes).
It used to be that *over-volting* was the way to get more performance. Then throttling came along. How times have changed…!
A Windows game running really well on Linux. Notice I said “running” and not “installing in a hassle-free manner”. I chose my words carefully.
Opening this Dell up and checking out components. The fight I had getting it open. Hackintoshing. Linux. Undervolting. Bios modding. Compliments. Complaints. It’s all in here!
Since the panel had a 25 year warranty, I expected at least 1 hassle-free decade. 3 years was a little quick to be pulling things apart. Oh well.
A heavier game on this little laptop with a 6W TDP. Seriously, I have LED light bulbs that use much more power than this laptop. Let’s see how this goes…
Just in case 64-bit Linux on a 32-bit EFI mac wasn’t complicated enough on it’s own…
Making the GNOME Terminal look and feel a little more like the Mac Terminal.
I like ASUS. I also like really low cost laptops. The X541 kind of marries those 2 things. Let’s see how this marriage worked out.
Low heat, power consumption, and price… what’s not to love!? Oh right, using sharp knives to get the thing out of the enclosure.
Solving an odd little issue where instead of printing the backslash character to my Arduino-connected LCD, it was printing the Yen (¥) symbol!
Looking at this small scale wind turbine. Does it generate power? Yes. Does it generate *lots* of power? Well…
After buying/trying tonnes of controllers in an effort to try and utilize all the power my wind turbine can generate, I found a solution: Design and build my own controller!
A “30A” charge controller that struggles to provide 5A.
