Cpgeek updates

Facebook just reminded me to reach out with updates, so here I am! (There will be a more complete video update in the next few weeks). So what have I been up to? I’ve had multiple open quests.
 
  • My day Job has had be doing lots of professional live streaming
  • My desk chair recently died and I’ve been researching a replacement
  • My NAS got a rebuild in a different case and had some issues recently leading to some required maintenance
  • I began research for a phone video I’d like to shoot
  • I purchased a new panasonic g7 camera to put in my prompter (thus freeing my panasonc g85 which has the same sensor but more features, so I can use it as a handheld camera again)
  • Bought a cheap camlink competitor (1080p 30, but very inexpensive and seems to work decently, review on that to come)
  • I purchased an application called touchportal which is a less expensive and imho better competitor that turns any ios or android device into a fully customizable streamdeck
  • I’ve been rethinking my digital dashboard project
  • working on some Christmas presents for my family
  • messing with my valve index preparing for a review, got a cr6-se 3d printer (that I’m still a little suspect about, more on that later)
  • will soon be rebuilding the virtual server that runs cpgeek.org (mostly due to the fact that Ubuntu no longer supports 32 bit applications and I was using the 32 bit version on a virtual machine to try to save memory and space as it’s got fewer than 4gb of ram allocated)
  • amazon associates payouts seem to be getting worse and worse so I’ve been updating @cpgeekdeals less and less but still throw some stuff up there if I find something particularly good.
  • I’ve been attempting to upgrade some of my computer components but having a devil of a time getting resellers to sell them to me (more on that later)
I’ve got some holiday time that I’m taking soon so I’m hoping to get some recording time in for some additional youtube content (which I’ll be reposing here) explaining some of this stuff soon. so stay tuned.

Tips to future-proof a PC build?

I was browsing a Facebook group that I frequent and saw an excellent question from someone who wanted to know if there was anything that could be done to future-proof a PC build while going through the planning stages. I thought this was an excellent question so I had a few thoughts on the matter. Read More >>
