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.

Social Network B-Gone! Website Clean Up pt.2

Social Network B-Gone. Some basic CSS to clean the angular theme.

I’ve made the decision to eject all social network outbound links to appear on every page of my website. This took some doing as I had to page through a lot of the Angular theme forums to ultimately find out Which CSS code controlled the very top section of my page. I had to modify my custom.css file which was found in the theme home directory underneath ./css and added the following lines.
