With the news lately on digital stuff, it turning to be good news for those that are proponents of physical copies.
Over the last little over a month 2 news stories have propelled those of us that are proponents of physical copies arguments as being stronger. first there was the news story of Sony shutting down the PS3/PSP/Vite stores (true they back tracked on that but only for the PS3/Vita, it still happening to the PSP[…]
Here is a reason you don’t want to place your data in the hands of another do you even own your own data anymore. If a company decides they don’t want you on their services anymore you loss “your” data, you loss “your” digital content, you loss “your” apps. Another issue I covered is the[…]
So Youtube thinks they are a bastion of frees speech. On of the largest violators of free speach (facebag and twatter being the other two) is giving themselves an award for free speech. Just look at all the people they banned for “wrong think” over the years. They are so free speech, they free people[…]
I will admit that even with all my ranting against the streaming future even I fell into it with Anima. But now I am working on fixing that, especially with the closing of the Sony PS3/PSP/Vita stores. I am starting to buy the ones I like on DVD/Blueray. It going to take some time. I[…]
With the talk of digital vs Physical games, the digital proponents have been talking about how the PS4 need to sync it clock to the PSN. Or things will not work, they claim that in the future if the PSN shuts down that PS4 physical games will not be playable because if the battery dies[…]

With the news Sony is closing down the stores for the PS3, PSP, and the Vita it makes me so glad I never fell for the stupidity of going digital with my game collection. Below is my game collection, nice and safe from any digital store shutting down. This should be a warning to those[…]
Hope you made a good Pie to celibate Pi day. I will be making a dutch apple pie later today for Pi day.
I am now looking at Ubiquiti Unifi Security Gateway (USG) in my search for a Router/Firewall for my home network. Yes I know it a professional grade system. But at the same time it seems to have the features I want. Plus it lacks the WiFi, which I don’t need as I now have the[…]
The PSP can not do the new WPA2 or WPA3 encryption for wireless. Also the PSP does not have any way to connect to Ethernet. But I came up with a solution, I got an old WiFi bridge that can do WPA (the new WiFi mesh network does not support WPA, as it to old[…]
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[…]
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[…]
