Linux, ADB, Raspberry Pi, Ouya? Lineage? Really?

Linux ADB into your Ouya via the Raspberry Pi? With SSH even?!?! It’s more likely then you think!

With Razer finally pulling the plug on Ouya’s servers on June 25 of 2019. Which June 25 2013 marks the birth date of the Ouya’s initial release (not bad for a console that was only designed to last for a few years). Users and preservationists have been scattering the net to find a way to keep these silver boxes running into 2019 and beyond. Of course a lot of them have found our original Cyanogen blog entry . This article is helping people to this very day in getting rid of the Stock Ouya firmware and loading it with something that no longer requires Ouyas Authentication servers. For all of those which have come to our blog for help. Allow us to thank you for visiting this independent blog and hope that you found the answers you were looking for.

But as time progresses so does the way we think, the way we hack our android boxes. Read on if you want to know more.

RedDragon Gaming Gear.

Well, since we keep talking about RedDragon in other hardware blogs…..

It should be fitting that we get ourselves some RedDragon hardware to try out because after working on Corsair and Razer gear pretty much calling it garbage. We’re pretty certain a lot of people get going to ask us

Why S? Why do you like RedDragon so much? Is Eastern Times Technology paying you? – rando

Hah! No company pays this site because they’d have to get ahold of us first. Hardly anyone really pays us but ourselves! We’re doing this article because we can. It’s just that simple. This blog entry will serve as a reference point whenever someone asks me what type of keyboard do recommend. To which they’ll probably laugh and purchase a name-brand piece of garbage for $200 only to throw it away in 6 months. So lets get started shall we?

So you want to start a blog?

Start a blog? In this day and age? What the hell man?!?

Perhaps one of the three readers might be interested in our advice on how to start a blog. To learn from the mistakes/failures we’ve made so that you can be an even better blogger. Perhaps even some of the success that we’ve had too. It’s been now five and a half years since we’ve opened this site and to this date we couldn’t be happier with the majority of the decisions made here. So, instead of giving little bits of information like “download WordPress”┬áthis article is to approach all aspects of what it takes to be at least a proficient blogger. We can’t say professional blogger as that would involve making money. But proficient is the next best thing in our opinions. Lets begin!

Adventures in Ebay.

Ebay: The story of lies, misdirection, and confusion.

For many who read our blogs you’ve probably seen a lot of links going off to Ebay for the hardware that we buy. Although there’s probably better sources to get cheap electronics such as Amazon. However, Ebay has always been our go-to source for a lot of bizarre things. This time around we purchased something rather mundane. What we ended up with is an eBay experience that is almost a teachable lesson on how fucked up business has gotten.

Rollerblade office caster wheels – buyer beware!

We purchased a set of Rollerblade office caster wheels.

We picked up a set of these office caster wheels that essentially have Rollerblade wheels on the bottom of them. Why you ask? Initially, we wanted skateboard wheels for the bottom of our chairs to maintain the aesthetic however those didn’t exist. Rollerblade wheels was the next best thing. Since Rollerblade wheels have a low Shore A rating of around 75A it meant that the polyurethane is soft and thus will not make any noise on hard wood floors. In less then a month of having these I ran into some problems! The story begins now!

Linksys E8500 – DD-WRT Router

How we found our E8500 DD-WRT router.

Because of some of the work that we do in the really real world we tend to work with non-profit accounts which shall remain unnamed for their security as well as our own. But one of the items that was scheduled for recycling/destruction was this Linksys E8500 router. This was super-odd to us because routers like these typically go for almost one-hundred U.S. dollars. Now, it could be dead for all we know! So we decided to take a chance while at the same time giving money to a charitable cause. Fifteen U.S. dollars later it was now in our possession. Time to roll our luck dice!

Mastodon social network decentralization.

Mastodon social network review time!

Today we’re going to be covering a social-network application called Mastodon. From a marketing stance it’s an odd choice to choose an animal that is slow, big and extinct for thousands of years. But hey! I’m not the one with a marketing degree! I’ve talked a lot about social networks in my collapsing internet rant but Mastodon is a little different from that. After about a week of using this social network we have found ourselves liking this software despite finding the occasional flaws. Read on for more info!
