Ableton Push Gen 1 Breakage.

My introduction to Ableton Push.

I purchased an Ableton push from and it was performing reasonably well for about six months time. With my Live lite license in hand I loaded the Ableton Push onto my computer and got right to work. My intention is rather clear about purchasing this peice of hardware which is simply to have the ability of making my own musical assets for the videos that I do on this site and perhaps even beyond in the lines of games if I get good enough at composition. But something went very wrong.

Elgato Game Capture 60p driver issues.

Elgato driver headaches.

The Elgato game capture device is one of the devices in my blogging tools for when I decide to do a video blog. Much to my surprise , version 3.0 of their video editing software was released. And upon downloading it the Elgato update tool not only tried to downgrade my software from 64-bit to 32-bit in some half-hazard method. But It also unregistered my device from the computer. This is just a quick entry to show how to fix the Elgato game capture HD60 and manually inject the driver back into your computer so that you can keep using it without a OS reload or anything crazy like that.

Orange Pi needs to go back into the oven.

Orange Pi – Is it ready for the world?

We received the Orange Pi (Or OrangePi) because like many Pi users I am always looking for something faster to run emulators and games within the ARM based universe. Emulation on the Raspberry Pi is good but lags a little for the more cpu intensive emulation like Nintendo 64 as just one example. When Orange Pi initially released their $15 (plus 3 dollar shipping from auction site ali-express) dollar computer featuring a quad-core based arm7 processor at around 1.6ghz. It was certainly worth a try.

Web Isolation – State of the config – fonts and more

Web Isolation, fonts, and the overall state of config that is “S”.

It’s been a while since I did an update on my website and I want to talk about Web Isolation.. Work and being a responsible human being is a brutal thing. There isn’t a whole lot of personal blogging that goes on here because I don’t think there’s anything all that interesting to say about “S-Config” as a person. Instead, I just want to focus on the data instead. And I think everyone agrees it’s a way better move. I suppose lets talk about the first aspect of what I have been doing with this Blog which is:

Banana Pi Case Mod v2

Banana Pi the Case Mod edition:

In the spirit of my previous blog post dealing with I-Pac mod It’s time the Banana Pi gets a face-lift with a new case mod. The reason why I’m doing this comes down to a lot of things that all boil down to the fact that my needs from this unit changed a lot over the years. This blog is just a minor update of what I have been doing in between jobs.

The Six Ouyas

Six Ouyas chilling on Ebay – AS-IS.

It was brought to my attention that there was a guy on Ebay selling a lot of six Ouyas as-is and I said “why not? lets see whats going on with them”. And now I have officially received my Six Ouyas for parts on ebay. The final price I paid for six broken Ouyas was $14.00 + $24.99 S&H from Canada to the US Midwest. I thought it would’ve gone for a lot more to be Honest but glad I got it for so low! Anyhow; Allow me to dig in to these. As a repair tech I am super excited about these and am very interested in how Ouyas break and to actually learn from some of these units in the hopes of helping others.

Lithium Battery charging fun.

Charging Lithium Batteries with various devices.

After my brief stint with Ni-Hm batteries it would a good time change things up and play with Lithium batteries. I did a lot of research and am still learning as I go along since lithium on the grand scale chart of batteries are the lightest, most powerful, and most dangerous battery to work with.

Web Services blog entry – AnubianHost

The progression from websites of old to AnubianHost my current site.

I thought I made a blog entry about AnubianHost when I first started my blog. But Anubian Host is the web provider that I use which hosts all of the data that you see before you and keeps it nice and fast to boot. It’s been a few years and perhaps it’s time I should tell you a little story behind why I moved to these guys.
