My Raspberry Pi 5 Ran Hot

I got my greedy paws on a Raspberry Pi 5 last month. Probably the Pi after this, will be the one at which I will say these are good enough and stop my “get ’em as soon as they are available” manic buying spree over the past few years. I use it as a music jukebox (with Jellyfin), as a place to host my audiobooks/files, as well as a syncthing node....

A New Hole Hawg, the Kobo Elipsa 2e

Update, 2024-02-16: Six months later … A couple of years ago, around this time, I upgraded to the best reading experience I could afford at the time. I got me a Kindle Oasis. I called it my Hole Hawg. And boy, has it served me like one. And while it has done, everything it promised it would do, I found myself outgrowing it and needing something more powerful.

Raspberry Pi 4 Not Accessible After a Reboot

Update: 28/12/2021 The solution? Move off the 64 bit Raspberry Pi OS and install Ubuntu.

This was before a friend pointed out that even the Paperwhite now has a 32gb variant. Now what? I decided to use the Oasis, so that I could lay my hands on the best e-ink reader Amazon makes for a week and then exchange it for a new Paperwhite....

Thoughts on Running Plex on a Raspberry Pi 4

This is just a play post to do a few things. One, I am now testing categories for the blog. So that the tech folk can subscribe only to the tech rss feed if need be. Second, I need to get into the swing of writing things again. It’s only been close to a month of not writing, but I already feel rusty 😂 I have been watching a lot of Netflix and other online streaming media last year....
