Anbernic RG405M with Gamma OS

In the search for an EDC entertainment handheld, I finally settled with the Anbernic RG405M. I was happy with my Miyoo Mini+, the software support on it was the best in its class IMO. But when a chance to trade it for a RG405M came along, I took it and glad I did. To sum […]

Spotify / Youtube offline downloads

I use spotdl which utilizes yt-dlp to download the actual songs. To download the highest quality you’ll need to have a Youtube Premium account with the audio quality set to high: Next, you’ll need to get the cookies to authenticate, I personally use Chrome on windows, you’ll need to launch Chrome with the –disable-features=LockProfileCookieDatabase to […]

New desktop

Got a good deal on a GPU recently which made me build a new desktop. Last time I had a desktop was when GPU prices were 1/5 of what they are right now, which was about 4 years ago. RAM and SSD prices have stayed relationship the same but othe compunents have noticably inflated, not […]

Expectations are the thief of Joy

Iron Prince by Bryce O’Connor

Warformed – Stormweaver book 1. Another Progression Fantasy gem I found that’s still ongoing. I can’t wait for book 2. I just hope the author leaves the story/readers hanging.

Dave Grohl – The Storyteller

Great stories from one of the musicians I grew up listening to. Albeit he progression or sequence of the stories are a bit jarring; The narration by the author made up for it though.

Anthony Bourdain – Kitchen Confidential

I found this very insightful and gave me a clearer perspective on the food I eat. Albeit at times the flow of the book seems to go off on tangents. The narration complemented the story very well; I would’ve appreciated more inflections when he was speaking in the third person.

Will Wight – Cradle

One of my favorite book series in recent memory. Thankful that this is the first series I read when getting into the Progression Fantasy genre. The narration by Travis Baldree was very complimentary as well. Travis Baldree is now one of my favorite narrators thanks to these books.

Mesh WIFI setup

It turns out that a a tri-band mesh router (AX6600) can work with a dual band node (AX1800) node. I tested both wireless and wired configurations with the wired vonfig passing through a switch. I am using the Asus XT8 and XD4 respectively.

It’s good until it’s not

I have a lot of feelings about my current situation in life but I don’t feel i have the energy to deal with it, But certain things aren’t elective and I either decide what to do about them or life/time will make them for me. Experience suggests that things get worse when left unsettled, so […]

Lemons and grapes

I exchange my time for money, rates are usually dictated by where you’re from and who you know… Not so much what you know. The gap between what I think I’m worth versus how much people are willing to pay me is usually great, but not as much as my need to provide and hopefully […]

The dichotomy of my outlook on life

I believe I won’t grow old and I feel that I don’t have enough time to do everything I want to accomplish in life. But ironically I do everything I can to extend the longevity of my body and work towards being financially independent for if or when I grow older. Call me a hypocrite, […]

The appreciation finally dawned on me that life is full of uncertainties; And I find myself searching for positive certainties to get me through that fact… Regardless of how fleeting it may be.
