I recently decided to take it upon myself to build a wall-mounted simple calendar using a RaspberryPi I had laying around, trying to make it as lightweight as possible and without depending on other services (except for Google Calendar where the calendar actually lives). Here I’m going to put together as much information surrounding this build as I can. Continue reading
It has come to my attention today that the creator of ToDoList (AbstractSpoon) has, more or less, waged war upon PortableApps.com. It seems as if the developer was having some issues handling support for the app as indicated by his post here. As you can see, he was getting a decent amount of support from other developers/users of PortableApps, but it doesn’t seem that the issues were taken any further than this post. Continue reading
I recently purchased a Samsung Galaxy S4 from T-Mobile. I liked the fact that they have an unlocked boot loader and I am trying to cut down on my outrageous phone bill. One thing that was a requirement was that the device had to work with AT&T’s 4G & LTE bands in case T-Mobile didn’t have all of the coverage that AT&T did. So I did a comparison of specs between AT&T and T-Mobile as shown below. Continue reading
This can be an infuriating error if you ever run into it, largely this post applies to Windows 7 (and equivalents) and above. Continue reading
I spent a lot of time trying to figure this out and found the easiest way to do it. Below is the detail.
Excel’s serialized dates are the number of days since 1/1/1900. In order to figure out the date again, we have to add the serial number worth of days (subtracting one to account for the inability to not count 1/1/1900 as a day). Continue reading
After lots of looking on how to get this going appropriately I decided to post a quick how-to on getting a custom 3D car model going in TM2 Stadium. It’s actually much easier than it seems, so here we go! Continue reading
So, if you play Farming Simulator 2013, you’re probably looking for an easy way to figure out what symbols are what crop well here you go.
I’ve taken a map provided graciously by another member of the community and added the crop symbols to it. Hopefully this will make your life easier as it did me 🙂 Continue reading
So, I was going to make this a nice long detailed review, but I can’t find time or the will to bring myself to do it. There are plenty of other excellent review out there of this device done by authors who are much more versed and well-written in mobile phone reviewing than I am. I apologize in advance if this isn’t what you’re looking for, but these are my few thoughts on the device. Continue reading
I was recently alerted to an unbeatable deal on a Logitech Momo Racing Wheel and Pedals. A friend of mine found a set, in presumably working condition, at a local Goodwill store. After I did a bit of on the fly research and investigation, I figured it was an unbeatable deal and had him pick it up for me. Continue reading
Tonight I was thinking, as I so often do, about mobile phones, how my current usage dictates what I buy and use, and how a different device, in one way or the other, can benefit or change my current experience of a mobile device. Continue reading
