Pine64 – PiHole – ChammelstrationMiser 4720K?!?!

4 years sitting in a desk drawer and now my Pine64 is back online.

A long time ago we did a review of a kickstarter project known as the “Pine64.” It was a $15 dollar arm processor board that came out after the Pi 2 in 2015. We were not one of the super-early backers and thus we got a 2016 board just like everyone else. When we did the review it wasn’t overly favorable because during that era everyone was trying to “Kickstarter” their project but no one really had good foresight as to how to handle their product AFTER it was “kickstart’ ed” for lack of a better word. We had hopes that in due time the OS would get more stable and these Pi’s that carry the Mali400 GPU chip-sets would get useful again. So did it? Quick answer – Yes and No. Read on and if you want to know more.

Teletext Mayhem.

Teletext is REAL! Even in the future-past of 20A7!

There is better sites out there that would give you an accurate description of Teletext. Like I could link you the Wiki right here . We stumbled upon this form of art when doing research on InfoChammel which is Public/Private cable access gone completely insane (In a good way). But a short summary for those who don’t want to go clicking around is teletext was a graphical and information standard developed in the UK during the 1970’s as a means of delivering content and information over the air. It didn’t really take off in America due to too many fights over how the standard of Teletext should be displayed. Read on if you would like to know more.

PNG and JPG Compression – Part 2

Some more hot PNG and now JPG compression fun!

A while back I did a quick article about PNG compression. Looking back on it. We have to admit that it was a rather weak and lackluster approach to compression. We could easily go back and amend our newest discoveries but the discussion of compression expands into multiple formats. So lets dive right into what’s going on with this site and probably every WordPress generated site in existence and why compression is all around good for you.

Sketches human and furry from 2013

The mixed Sketches of 2013

Introducing my brand new book “from 2013” which is simply a black book.  I will be throwing a lot of rough drafts of fur and miscellaneous crap into! This time with a lot of blue pencil as well as Sumi-Ink coming later. The sketches in this book are purely for practice and to show people out there that I am still alive and thinking of art.

Spectra and Tikaani – Color Gifted Art

Spectra and Tikaani

It’s not often I do gift art for people. Mostly because people tend to come and go a lot. But Spectra and Tikaani wanted something nice for their first anniversary. With my limited art skill. I gave it what I could. I printed two copies out with them signed just in case. Anyhow, I thought it would be worthwhile to post this up here into my art section.

Human and Furry Sketches from 2008

Human and Furry Sketches from 2008

Here you will find sketches of my mixed book of 2008. There isn’t a whole lot I did in 2008 but I shall post it anyway for historical purposes. A lot of pencil work with the occasional Sumi-E ink drawings in here as well. This is one of the few times I actually sat down and started to draw more humans as I felt it is something that I should get better at doing. For what it’s worth I posted it for all to see.
