More Raspberry Pi 4

It really is quite incredible what this tiny little computer can do, especially when compared with the very early home computers that I got the opportunity to play with when I was about the same age as my daughter. So this blog is about some more Raspberry Pi 4 things I’ve been playing with…



This is another one of those blogs that I started (well, I gave it a name and saved it!) a few years ago, but just never got around to it. I thought I better having blogged about it a little here, and I really do need to find myself a replacement for Apple Aperture.


Episode V – The Apps Strike Back

I really can’t remember how long ago I drafted this blog about Apps and Linux, but the main block was in the classic format and it was supposed to follow on from this blog, so I’d say it was at least a couple of years ago! Having recently updated my MacBook Air which I blogged out here I thought it might be interesting to revisit this.

I got a Raspberry Pi 4 for Christmas, although never really had in mind running Pi-hole. I’ve also been playing around with various browsers, which is what actually got me thinking about using Pi-hole. And finally, after a couple of Youtube videos I decided to give Pi-hole a spin for myself, but not on my Raspberry Pi 4, but in a Ubuntu VM on my FreeNAS server!


A tale of two (faulty) devices

Faulty Devices from Apple and Netvue

Let’s be clear before I start, I get this is probably an unfair comparison, but I’m going to make it anyway!  Over the last month, I’ve had two electronic devices fail – firstly my Apple iPhone X and then shortly afterwards my Netvue Orbcam.  So, this is the tale of two faulty devices.
