Flowblade 2.2.0 Effects Tutorials

Had a little time today so I wanted to do some effects in Flowblade. If you need a little guidance maybe these will help. There are three in this video.

Fun with video in a Bootstrap 4 carousel.

I am working on a project at work and they were interested in a video playing up top. I decided it might be more fun if you have a series of videos. I already had Bootstrap 4.3.1 doing things on the page and I almost always have JQuery – you don’t really need JQuery but […]

Scribus 1.5.5 Book Cover Tutorial Video

I wanted to give Scribus another try and had some downtime today. I used it eariler in the year to create a book cover for a friend’s family member who publishes on Amazon. This time I wanted to refresh myself and learn a bit more so why not record a video to show the compete […]

Flowblade 2 Video Editor Video Tutorial made in Flowblade

I decided to give Flowblade Video Editor a go for the hell of it. I got tired of playing Divine Divinity. In the past I had stability issues with Flowblade so I tended to use Pitivi or KDEnlive and avoid it. Since it is now at 2.0 I wanted to give it a try. I […]

Playing RetroArch games in Lutris

Classes in PowerShell

I’ve noticed that a lot of admins learning PowerShell tend to use global variables and pass things around to functions, if they use functions at all. Sometimes all you need are classes to make things cleaner and easier to manage. Classes can be intimidating to newer developers or folks who only write occasionally for admin […]

First App Example In Nim

First impression of Nim was, wow! I’m a big Python guy so the syntax made me feel at home. I installed initially with apt and found it to be a tad old. Still, things worked great until I installed a few packages. None would import no matter what I did. I got close but they […]
