Tablo Dual WiFi TV Tuner DVR and Antenna

I have wanted to dump cable for years, since around 2005 when I built my fist real media system with HDHomeRun to deliver TV to all out devices. I split the cable and plugged that into the second HDHomeRun antenna so I could get cable and OTA TV on our wireless devices back when that […]

Playing RetroArch games in Lutris

Setting up 3DO, and other virtualized game systems requiring a BIOS, to run in Lutris with RetroArch. It’s straight forward and will be similar for each platform. My Logitech controller worked as expected as well; however, I did update everything in RetroArch before setting up in Lutris so I am not sure if that mattered. […]

Installing and Setting Up Pop OS 19.10

Installing Pop OS is fairly straight forward and easy. I didn’t notice any differences between 19.10 and previous versions. I have installed this on an Asus and System 76 Oryx Pro, which is my main laptop. Asus setup was also easy; although, the Asus required some more work to get gaming running smooth but even […]

POP OS 19.10 GTA V and Streaming Setup.

I had a fun weekend of installing various Linux distros on my son’s Asus ROG (2018ish) laptop in order to get GTV 5 running, which of course lead to me installing various Linux distros on my own laptop, because why not? More on actual install of Pop! OS. It all started on the default Windows […]

Setup 3DO in RetroArch on Linux.

Awhile ago I posted a 3DO emulator that only runs on Windows. I haven’t played any retro console games in a few years beyond old PC games from GOG to be honest but I had some time and was wanting to play Slayer, my favorite game on 3DO back in the day. I also wanted […]

Simple PowerShell example to collect user logons from Security Log.

This is rather slow, IMO. I was thinking of replacing my Python solution with PowerShell since our shop is moving to PowerShell for administrative purposes. Will likely need to add some filtering on users to get rid of the noise, you can see that in my Python code posted earlier.

Simple PowerShell module to store passwords.

If you have PowerShell scripts with passwords hard-coded you don’t want to risk someone accidentally exposing the script with passwords available. I wrote a simple password vault module to keep passwords outside the scripts. It stores them as files so you will need a secure share or folder to store them. I have a Python […]

How is finding duplicate files with PowerShell using SHA256? Fucking fast.

I just had to do it. I do this because why the hell not? We all have litter. I guess people will be interested in math, data, and AI. How boring… Maybe not boring at work but definitely boring at home. Maybe I’ll get motivated to do some TensorFlow slop. After I finish my GTK […]

Create, insert, and Query SQLite with PowerShell.

So I have C# code that grabs the print records from the Windows event logs on the print servers in order to create reports and easy searches from my web environment. I dump this data into a SQLite database, because I am a control freak and the place where I work is also a control […]

Get all installed software on Windows 10 with Python 3 and WMI.

This is very basic and I’d lie if I said I hadn’t tried looping through the registry for 64/32 bit, but this works great and isn’t missing entries. I deliver this in a web page making it easy to do look ups on most machines in my org. Tweak as you need, add some error […]
