RedDragon Gaming Gear.

RedDragon Title.

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 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. Ignore everything mentioned in this article And finally, purchase a name-brand piece of garbage for $200 only to throw it away in 6 months.

But for those who want to hear what my recommendation is then you can read on at your own risk.

Start A Blog Title.

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 bloggers as that would involve making money. But proficient is the next best thing in our opinions. Let’s 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 are 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!

Rollerblade office chair caster title.

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 do you ask? Initially, we wanted skateboard wheels for the bottom of our chairs to maintain the aesthetic however they do not exist unless we make them ourselves. Rollerblade wheels were 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 hardwood floors. In less than a month of having these, we ran into some problems! But found a better product at the end of it all. The story begins now!

Some http2 headaches.

Collapsing internet universe title.

Sitting on the bleeding edge with HTTP2 protocols. HTTP2 has been enabled shortly after we purchased an SSL connection. Since we were already running encryption on our blog then why not take advantage of another method that will speed up the site? This blog will continue to be enabled until a better transport protocol comes … Read more

Linksys E8500 – DD-WRT Router

DD-WRt Router Title.

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 were 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 lucky dice! Read on if you want to know more.

7-Zip conversion is now in effect.

We have decided to proceed with the move converting any archived files into the 7-zip or .7z extension. The reason for this move is to help with getting users the files they need faster. This blog is ready to try new technologies to make communication faster. Thus, 7-zip will be a welcome addition. As an added side-effect transitioning to 7-zip will help with the backups and overall optimization.

Plugin review: Yoast needs to stop linking itself.

Yoast SEO Plugin Title

Every piece of information is important. Yoast Disagrees!

I decided to write up a quick article/review about one of the plugins that we use here called “Yoast” or as the plugin delicately puts it “WordPress SEO”. In an arrogant fashion that there is only one SEO package out there and that’s it. For those who do not know what this plugin does. Yoast attempts to understand how search engines work. Yoast then passes down automated knowledge to the WordPress blogger on how to write up their documentation to make it more machine likable. Because of machines like your blog entry then you might stand a chance at a human actually seeing it. Crap, we’re living in a rather grim state of affairs but it’s true!
