I heared the sad news that Rush Limbaugh passed. I in the past enjoyed listening to him. My sympathy goes out to his family. He will be missed.

Now that I have the Raspberry Pi serving as a DNS server, one as a DHCP and VPN server. And I have the WiFi mesh network setup. Next step is I want to setup a hardware firewall (or maybe a computer to server as a firewall) between my home network and the Verizon Modem. I[…]

Today I had an email from Facebag reminding me to check Facebag, and listing posts I have missed lately. LOL, not going to check it more, as I am very happy since I stopped reading Facebag and Twatter. Why would I want to reduce my happiness by going back and reading them like I use[…]

With the new Eero system, it looks a lot better then the other one. I was able to set the access points to bridge mode with no real problem. It still has the need for a stupid app to configure them. But there a lot less in the app. I did have a minor snag[…]

Well I returned the Deco, as that was a waste of my time, I am glad I got my money back, as it would have been a waste of my money. So I picked up a Eero to try out, there are a few kinks in the system still, but it is looking more promising.[…]

The new Deco WiFi mesh devices came, and they are having the EXACT same issue. And they don’t even let you try with a web interface you have to configure it with a stupid app. They were being too cleaver for their own good on this, and that probably part of the problem. I will[…]

So this month a new Persona 5 game is coming out, Persona 5 Strikers, not much into action “hack and slash” games but I did enjoy Persona 5 enough that I would like to see where the store continues on too. After that there is the next installment in the Horizon Zero Dawn game, Forbidden[…]
