Boltune wireless ear-buds work great with Linux

I bought these awesome wireless ear-buds so I could game without bothering my wife. She has Apple AirPods and raves about them. Well, I’m not spending that much to listen to games and occasional music. I wouldn’t want to take them out of the house at that price point. Don’t get me wrong, Apple makes […]

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 […]

Automated Dynatrace API data dumps from PowerShell

There are many ways to do this. I wrote this in Python and now PowerShell. The original was a bat file. PowerShell is easier to work with than bat/cmd f since they can be touchy with quoted strings and html encoding. This PowerShell gets the job done for both v1 and v2 and has a […]

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.

Update: May 7, 2020. Updated the Asus to Pop! OS 20.04 – fresh install, Steam running Proton 5. The app id for GTA V changed but I was able to do the same basic steps with the exception of installing the video driver. I installed the NVIDIA version of Pop! OS and everything worked fairly […]

Restful Server In PowerShell

I know I have been focused on PowerShell but I have down time and wanted to play since our shop seems to love it so much. I think I am going to do some other posts, maybe Node or something, because PowerShell is boring. I am building a dashboard so I was playing with PowerShell […]
