In worst-writer's quest to eventually (when exactly?) dump MacOS, I've been dabbling in Linux for quite some time. The problem, of course, is that I'm a very slow learner. Add to that the relative slowness of previous RPi's, I've not yet felt comfortable with Rasbian or any other Linux distro on the RPI3, with the … Continue reading Desk Rig While Migrating To Linux
Trying to figure out the linked article below, dear worst-reader. Sometimes I have that problem as I scan the Interwebnets being the info junky I am. And while some articles perturb me, others disturb me, this one kinda makes one side of me head glow as though I were the missing target of unicorns and … Continue reading Decimate Manufacturing
Why go to 10 (or Xr or 8) when you can go to 11? For that is the worst-question, eh, dear worst-reader? I mean, wouldn't we all go to 11, always skipping the others, if we could? Or is the issue mute? Nomatter. The moment I'd been avoiding for so long by nursing my iPhone … Continue reading Pseudo-Review: iPhone 6s > iPhone 11
When did it begin in my beloved & missed united mistakes of #Americant, dear worst-reader? When did the obsession to consume-to-survive through the happy monetary machine of plastic begin? When did that little plastic card replace hard earned cash someone's grandparents slaved for--or wheel barrelled into a bakery in Berlin in 1923 to buy bread? … Continue reading Apple Pay, Credit Bureaus, Moneyed History Straight Line To Now
And yet another update is here. UPDATE (to this post): The Rock64 with 4-bay drive enclosure (the gadgets on the left in the pic above) failed the other day. That means, this entire post is null & void. Oh how I wanted the Rock64 (from Pine64) to succeed. But I suppose, for tech newbie/wannabees like … Continue reading Network Station Galore In Pine64 Heaven
Subtitle: My friends 2015 MacBook has been through hell. An old friend came by the other day to mooch of an extra bed on his way to a boating thing in Köln. He does that once or thrice a year, don't you know. I mean, wouldn't you? He gets a nice place to sleep (saving … Continue reading It Takes A Licking And Keeps On…
Even though the Apple store where I bought the same configured MacBook as the heavily discounted one in the link below in January, where they discounted mine by only €250,-, the idear of someone else lucking out and getting $600,- off, really hurts. Of course, it doesn't matter at this point. I'm really digging my … Continue reading Ok. This Hurts.
Update to this post here. Pseudo alternative subtitle: Years of digital living is hard to leave behind. But behind it must be left. As mentioned here, I've been telling myself for years, and thereby avoiding a certain kind of reality, that I need a NAS (networked-attached-storage). Although I was able to circumvent having to own … Continue reading Welcome To NAS Hell
Disclaimer: some poignant and verbose language is in this post. Good luck. Yeah, dear worst-reader. We're here once again. It's time to get it on about my beloved & missed #Americant, the Land Of Free To Be Stupid, where dysfunction wallows in a toilet bowl that some think is a swamp and will never, ever, … Continue reading Never Quite Knowing Exactly What You’re Doing–The #Americant Way
We live in a world of Trump-Uglies and the disgust his ilk pro-creates. We live in a world of teeth-less, comb-over dog-fights that are clawless due to cosmetics and ill-fitted matrimony. And even better... We live in a world that is not lead by the merit of one's or the collective's actions. No. Indeed. We … Continue reading How Compulsives Run The Show
Dabbling away, dear worst-reader. Dabbling away with the fancy of my new MacBook aka exuberant über glorified typewriter. Not quite two weeks in my consume-to-survive possession, the only issue I'm having with it so-far is the colour. Seriously. I love the keyboard. Don't mind the single USB-C port (as I've got plenty of dongles already … Continue reading Let’s Call It Red-Brass, Shall We?
Title 2: Or How I Got My (Almost) Pink On What is it you do, dear worst-reader? In other worst-words, what do you do between the hell-day that is modern western consumerism run-amok aka Xmas combined with the ending of yet another krappy (worst) year in a universe lead by the greatest land of free … Continue reading Pseudo Unboxing & Review Of 2017 12″ MacBook
And to think all those years where I literally tore my Macs apart to de-dust them... I knew there was something up. And now... I have to be honest. I don't quite know what they mean by "flogging" in this post. Oh well. Rant on. -T The lawsuit claims that Apple is flogging computers and … Continue reading Apple’s Macs quite literally a dirty secret and there need be more lawsuits (I guess)
... The German, with a heavy accent, asks Tim in broken English, "wahn kahn ik pey myna bahr drink mit apple pey in Deutschland?" The Jew, who is also the bartender getting ready to start his shift, turns to Tim, greets him by showing him the red dot on his new Apple Watch, and says, … Continue reading A German, A Jew, And Tim Cook Walk Into A Bar
Subtitle: How To Get Some Tech Freedom With SBC As previously mentioned here, I've been dabbling of-late in the world of SBC (Single Board Computing). Reason? I'm on a long and curvy path to weaning myself from/of Apple and its hellacious eco-system. In fact, I'm currently fiddling around with the idear of getting off the … Continue reading Getting Some Tech On
Subtitle 1: E-Book reading. Looks like there's no turning back (for worst-moi). Subtitle 2: A pseudo-review of e-readers. I first started e-reading on a Kindle 2. I loved the design of the Kindle 2, especially the analog page change buttons and the odd but fully functional keyboard that enabled the best note-taking (at the time) … Continue reading From New To Old Or Skipping What’s In-Between
I tried to become a watch-nut once. Not a real watch-nut, mind you. Of course not. A real watch-nut spends lots of money on watches. Heck, I don't even like money. Anywho. A watch-nut knows what a complication is. In fact, that's the only thing that made watches interesting to me. The simpler the complications, … Continue reading Apple v Pi Or How I Slowly Got My Computing Future On
Here's the latest greed-mongering-magazine's list of top corporations in the world ranked by whatever-$$$ (I guess). I came across this list because, as an Apple pseudo-fan-boy, my favourite company-to-hate was recently downgraded. How can that be--especially after I just took advantage of a battery replacement program for my ageing phone that was probably the best … Continue reading The Wrong Of Success In The Land Of Free To Be Stupid Because Rest Of World Is Even Stupider
One of the world's most greedy corporate CEOs (I mean, come on worst-reader, it is all about greed and not achievement or merit or the like, right?) has found a moment to put a few degrees between what he represents (über-greed) and what the worst of the worst represents (stupid-greed). Pretty much from day one … Continue reading Kudos To The Best Of The Worst
https://youtu.be/LFlTx3UyWWo Don't you hate it when that happens? This particular wheel lasted for well over ten minutes--until I forced a restart on my MacBook Air 7,2. This is but another reminder of how much I'm gonna enjoy making this my last Apple hardware purchase (I spitefully hope). As far as MacOS goes, Apple has really … Continue reading Apple’s Spinning Wheel Of You Suck
In an attempt to figure out Apple's really, really krappy cloud service, iCloud, I finally hooked up with icloud.com today. Seriously. I've never been to this part of the Apple universe before. I guess I always preferred to do all my stuff mostly through a Mac and every once-a-once my phone. I had two reactions … Continue reading Wait. Remember When…
Oh my, dear worst-reader. Since confiscating my better-half's 2016 12" MacBook--and she going full iOS as of late 2017--I've been enjoying this little über-fantastic device which has even made me forget my beloved 2015 13" MacBook Air with that friggin i7 processor and that fan that randomly interupts everything all day long--and wants to burn hole … Continue reading Bad Apple, Bad Apple. Now Go In The Corner For Your Time-Out.
Worst-writer has been wielding an iPhone 6s for well over two years now. It's my second "smartphone". Worst-writer has never been a fan of Apple's iOS. In fact, most computer operating systems suck. On top of that, the whole smartphone thing bores me. Reason? These things can do so much more. Here's my worst-dream for … Continue reading Not Only In #Trumpland Does Disinformation Serve The Agenda. Would You Believe Corporations Use Smoke Screens Too? Duh!
I can't feel a thing. Well, actually I feel a small click. Yes. It's a click where there should be movement. And I'm not talking about the trackpad? Yet, so similar are these new input and control gadgets on Apple's new MacBook. Comparatively, there is much more movement of the keys and the trackpad of … Continue reading Typing On The New MacBook, The Joy Of Butterfly
The first pseudo-review is here. A third is here. How did I get here, dear worst-reader? How did I get to be the confiscating husband I've become? And how did I get to this place I'm at where being overwhelmed w/ tech gadgets could be so frustrating? You know, dear worst-reader, as a useless-eater, as … Continue reading Pseudo Review: Followup Of Newly Confiscated 2016 12″ MacBook
