Arduino Controlled Ambient Light Chameleon | Blathering

One of the greatest things about the information age is being able to see the seemingly endless creativity of the world's makers, programmers and artists. Even cooler is when these different passions and disciplines come together to create something truly fun and exciting. There are countless examples of those and I should probably feature more … Continue reading Arduino Controlled Ambient Light Chameleon | Blathering

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

Christmastime in the year 2020 | Holiday Blathering

What can I say about 2020 that someone else hasn't already said? I can say it has been... a bit of a disappointment. Nothing has really gone to plan, it seems. I would say, tho, 2020 started out pretty great. Things were looking good for most people and evens occurred that really took the shine … Continue reading Christmastime in the year 2020 | Holiday Blathering

Rickroll in the Terminal

This is a mostly useless blathering but since I got a good laugh out of it, I wanted to index this bit of fun and share it because that is what you do, right? Share nonsense on the Internet? Isn't that why they invented the thing? I was watching "Adrian's Digital Basement" on YouTube and … Continue reading Rickroll in the Terminal

CubicleNate now on LBRY | Blathering

For the half dozen or so of people that might manage to care, I have decided to start synchronizing my piddly YouTube content over to LBRY. I'd say this is nothing against YouTube but actually, it is. Although I will still use and enjoy YouTube, many of their decisions have shaken my confidence in their … Continue reading CubicleNate now on LBRY | Blathering

Linux in the Kitchen | Life Enhancement Blathering

There are so many ways Linux can be used. Most commonly, we see it used to run the Internet in servers and cloud thingies and such. If you are a desktop user, you might use it for office tasks in your home or work, maybe you are a content creator and you do video or … Continue reading Linux in the Kitchen | Life Enhancement Blathering

Noodlings 10 | Christmastime, xLights, Exploring Media Servers and Computer History

To squeeze one more blathering in before the end of the year, here are a few things I am noodling around currently. The 10th Noodling arriving, not because anyone asked for it... Christmastime Activities Post Christmas Day shopping yielded me a really nice find, specifically something pretty fantastic from Lowe's that allows me to fix … Continue reading Noodlings 10 | Christmastime, xLights, Exploring Media Servers and Computer History

Things are Looking Pod-tastic | Fall Time Blathering

When I first started to put fingers to keyboard with this "CubicleNate.com" thing, I didn't ever envision it become much of anything. Just a little tool to help keep my notes somewhat organized and hope that I could provide some kind of resource to someone at some point. In late 2018, I joined the Big … Continue reading Things are Looking Pod-tastic | Fall Time Blathering

Noodlings 6 | Symphony, Power Tools and Storage

My 6th noodling might be my longest noodling yet. It started out a bit light but then after reading I just got a bit too excited. If you want to skip to the end where I do a little self-deprecation and ignore the meat of it, that is very understandable. The 6th Noodling can be … Continue reading Noodlings 6 | Symphony, Power Tools and Storage

Noodlings 2 | Desktops and Window Managers, BDLL and openSUSE News

Another podcast and after listening to the final thing... I sound a bit like cardboard. Maybe episode 3 won't smell like wet newspaper. Listen here, it's only 10 minutes and 30 seconds of cringe-worthy material. Desktops and Window Managers I view KDE Plasma as the pinnacle of all things that are the Desktop and portal … Continue reading Noodlings 2 | Desktops and Window Managers, BDLL and openSUSE News
