Epic Failed Projects
on 09 Apr 2017 by anthrit author list
Here are all the failed projects of the Geeking Off show. I have put them all together into one big episode to share with the world. The first one was on a USB Cassette Tape Converter to record them to MP3s. The second one was going to be on the Raspberry Pi 3 Workstation setup that fell apart due to Audio issues. I eventually just turned it into a Lakka Pi Retro Emulator for playing old Nintendo Games. Third was a video on the Posh Worlds Smallest Smartphone. Last but not least was the original first episode of Geeking Off called Epic Speaker that was about the Nakamichi Black Mini Plus.

Linux Podcast Studio ★Geeking Off★
on 10 Mar 2017 by anthrit author list

Odroid XU4 X2Go Server
on 19 Feb 2017 by anthrit author list
The Odroid XU4 was going to be a full time use desktop for my mom. But after some testing and playing around I discovered that video acceleration on the Ubuntu Mate desktop environment made it useless. The desktop performance was better on a Raspberry Pi 2 for desktop optimization. However, the Odroid XU4 makes one hell of a X2Go Server. This device will make a great server in your rack.
Ubuntu Mate On Windows 10 WSL
on 04 Feb 2017 by anthrit author list
I found a new way to run Desktop Environments on Windows 10 WSL. Thanks to Noah from Jupiter Broadcasting.

Start:
First you must turn on Windows 10's Developer Mode via Settings > Update & security > For developers. Next, search for "Windows Features" and choose "Turn Windows features on or off" and enable Windows Subsystem for Linux (Beta).

Reinstall New LX If Needed:
lxrun /uninstall /full
lxrun /install

Fix D-Bus:
sudo sed -i 's/.*<\/listen>/tcp:host=localhost,port=0<\/listen>/' /etc/dbus-1/session.conf

Enable SSH:
sudo nano /etc/ssh/sshd_config
Change:
UsePrivilegeSeparation no
PubkeyAuthentication no
PasswordAuthentication yes
Restart Service:
sudo service ssh --full-restart
sudo dpkg-reconfigure openssh-server (If You Have Errors)

Install X & X2Go:
apt-get update
apt-get install python-software-properties
add-apt-repository ppa:x2go/stable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install x2goserver x2goserver-xsession
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-mate-dev/ppa
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-mate-dev/trusty-mate
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

Corsair Gaming STRAFE RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
on 15 Jan 2017 by anthrit author list
My Old Razer Blackwidow keyboard finally bit the dust. So out of desperation I picked up the Corsair Gaming STRAFE RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. It has the cherry brown switches, they are not as loud and obnoxious as the blue cherry switches. At first I did not like it however they are starting to grow on me and I prefer the softer sound they make. In the end I was able to repair my old Razer keyboard. All you need is a hammer.

The Keyboard I got:

Lightworks Tutorial 12.6 - 2016 ★Geeking Off★
on 05 Jul 2016 by anthrit author list
This was a request from the Diabetic Geek on Patreon. This is a well overdue video request and I finally got time to make it. Lightworks turns most people off from the moment they first open it and are confused by the UI. With my tutorial I will teach you how to edit a vlog using the shortcut keys of the program. Hopefully after watching this, some of you will understand the Lightworks workflow. I will teach you how to import video, edit using the timeline, basic color correction, add transitions, music, titles, and rendering.

★Keyboard Shortcuts★
Pause/Play: Spacebar
Previous Marker: A
Next Marker: S
Set In Point Marker: I
Set Out Point Marker: O
Dump In/Out Markers Onto Timeline: V
Zoom: CTRL+Scroll Wheel
Delete Between In/Out Markers: X

Building A PFSense Firewall
on 30 May 2016 by anthrit author list
After a long battle editing this video with Kdenlive I finally got this video done. I got around to building a firewall for my Linux Server Rack project. I started off with a 1U rack mount server chassis, a Intel D2500CCE Atom Dual LAN Mini-ITX Motherboard, 2 sticks of Samsung 2GB PC-8500 DDR3 1066MHz memory, & a ADATA 32 GB SSD. I tossed it all up in the air and it came back down as a firewall. The first power supply I got was junk, it burned out after about a week of use, and I had to replace it. I been Using it now for the past month, I really enjoy using PFSense, and will never be going back to stock routers ever again.

Elecom Deft M-DT1DR Track Ball Mouse ★Geeking Off From Japan★
on 13 Apr 2016 by anthrit author list
I was shopping at Yodobashi Camera Umada yesterday and found this really neat track ball mouse. It was what I have been searching for years. I have never found this type of mouse on Amazon except for a Logitech Cordless Optical Trackman going for over $400 that was discontinued. This product needs to come to the US. I am in love with it.
