openSUSE Stickers to Enhance your Tech

I have not been one that has been real huge on stickers. Historically, I have not been one to sticker anything up, I have enjoyed keeping things plain, ordinary and uniform or incognito. With my recent computer acquisition, the very nice, sleep albeit cold HP EliteBook felt very impersonal. I felt, it needed a touch … Continue reading openSUSE Stickers to Enhance your Tech

HP EliteBook 840 G7 running openSUSE Tumbleweed

I was given an incredible gift by my former employer as a parting gift, an HP EliteBook 840 G7. I didn't unpack it right away as I wasn't sure how I was going to integrate it into my mess of computer equipment.

HP TouchPad in 2018.1 Update

openSUSE Tumbleweed on HP Pavilion 15

I make no bones about the fact I am a Linux geek and try to make myself available to anyone with tech questions, but I typically will shy away from putting hands on to fix any Windows issues. I just don't have the time or patience to mess with it. I was approached by a … Continue reading openSUSE Tumbleweed on HP Pavilion 15

Six Steps to a Simple Samba Setup on openSUSE

openSUSE is a very polished, commercial-feeling distribution of Linux. The architects of the distribution have a much larger scope in mind of its usage than what I generally do.

HP TouchPad in 2018

I purchased two HP TouchPads a few years ago when they were fairly inexpensive. I wanted a larger tablet that wasn't built cheaply. They worked great for a while but started to act up.
