Creating a Natron/KDEnlive space animation.

Had some downtime and wanted to give Natron a try. It has always ran like shit on the Linux distributions I run so I don’t think I’d use it for big projects but for small clips, like maybe subscribe buttons, it works great. I just hope someone picks up the development again, because I like […]

Manjaro Linux Rocks

What can I say about Manjaro 19.0 Kyria KDE Edition? It is the absolute best Linux distribution that I have installed to date. Goodbye POP! OS. I am running a 2018 Oryx from System 76 who also makes POP! OS and Manjaro actually works better on their hardware.

Just because Apple says it’s waterproof doesn’t make it so.

My son has the Apple XS iPhone, which was advertised as water resistant. While he was video recording a restoration project the phone accidentally got splashed while washing the object he was restoring. Within a day it began displaying damage as the screen and camera began to behave oddly. I told him to shut it […]

Fetch COVID-19 US state data and upload to site as JSON in Python 3.

During the protests while already being locked down by the virus and curfews, maybe fear that the end was here (nah, we know better), I got bored and made a dashboard to watch the protest action from the safety of home as neither of us can risk the cost of COVID treatment or loss of […]

Too old for protests so I brought them to me.

I was curious if I could get CAMs from around town like I had done years ago for a dashboard I built for work. Well, it’s a hell of a lot easier now than it was! I also used to display the weather and such but a lot of that is pay to play, accept […]

Install Photoshop CS6 on POP!OS 20.04 in PlayOnLinux

I find that Krita and/or The Gimp can pretty much do everything I want but one thing they can’t do is provide some of the excellent plug-ins found for Photoshop. If Krita could get Photoshop plug-in support I would imagine it would take a big chuck of Adobe’s end user market. I really don’t want […]

Second Laptop Monitor: 15.6″ Auzai Portable Review

We all know having a second monitor is nice. Being able to have documentation, video monitor, reference photo, audio meters, whatever off you main screen is so convenient and frankly more productive. I never considered having a second monitor for my laptop that I could carry with me but it’s actually rather nice extending the […]

Kids Home Schooling or need something to do during the pandemic?

If you need to keep the kids learning, or just entertained while waiting for the virus to sweep though the population, maybe a few of these open source tools can help to keep them off your back while you try to do your job from home? 🙂 You can tell them it’s my fault so […]
