I played ping pong for a bit of fun at university, mainly when there wasn’t a pool table free in the students union! I always enjoyed it, but never really considered it as a great way to keep fit. After a couple of sessions at a local course I’ve signed up I now know it is!
Well, the answer to the question is a resounding YES, although there is a fairly BIG caveat!
Well, that was probably an even a bigger schoolboy error than not reading the PC-BSD manual! In my search to find a solution to my ‘Start X’ error, it turns out the PC-BSD is no longer supported but is pretty much continuing under the TrueOS banner.
I’ve been wanted to get back to where we started, specifically my MacBook Air (MBA) and doing something with the spare partition I created when I setup eOS, but I hadn’t really found the time or decided what I was going to use it for.
Given FreeNAS runs on FreeBSD I thought that was probably the most sensible option, so decided to give PC-BSD a shot, mainly as I expected that to be a lot easier than trying to install FreeBSD and then get a desktop environment up and running (although I had managed that in a virtual machine running a Xfce desktop). If PC-BSD works, then maybe I’ll try that next.
After getting to grips with Alexa (well kind of) I thought I’d ramp up the home automation and get a Harmony remote to consolidate all my other remotes and allow for some further voice activation.
