    • I learned this at CES 2018 and First Alert didn't like it.  Didn't like it at all.  In fact, they brought over someone else for me to speak with so they could try to save face and hush me up.

    • Rachio has just announced version 3 of their popular sprinkler system controller.  Rachio's generation 2 hardware was such an improvement on their first controller it may be hard to top.  Gen 3 looks great and has new hardware to go with it.

    • This is a fantastic deal.  $249 for the Moto X4 on Project Fi. I pay $20 a month for unlimited phone calls and texts plus $10 a month per Gigabyte of data used.  My Bill is usually at that $30 mark plus fees.  If you use more data you pay for it.  If you use over 60Gb you pay up to 60 Gb and then the rest is free up to 15Gb, then you get a little throttle back on speed.  It's a great service that I can't recommend enough.
      Sign up now and get a $20 credit.
      You can also get it on 24 months No Interest via Google.  Pay $10 a month or pay it off anytime during that 2 years.  Once you are on Fi you can get new phones at zero interest.  Order through the app and never go into the Verizon or ATT store again.
      My favorite part?  International service.  Same data fees as home with no surcharge.  Oh, and free data SIMs.  You can order a free data SIM, meaning, if you have a second device that you want to use as data you can get a SIM with no monthly fee.  It uses your same data pool.  Tablet, second phone, laptop, etc.

      Sign up and get $20 credit too.  I'll get a credit as well.  https://g.co/fi/r/9WX36D

    • Hey all,
      I've got a goodie bag full of stuff that I want to give away to a Patreon subscriber.  At the end of the give away period I'll put all the names in a hat and draw one.  Not a Patreon Supporter?  It is so easy.  Go here - http://patreon.com/davidmccabe  Sign up for any level.  I may....weight the higher subs a little more.  Maybe put them in twice or something. $5 and up club.  I do have some more give away items coming up too.  Bigger things!
      Here is the lot so far.  Probably some RESET stickers too!  What is this stuff?  PopSocket for a phone, Acronis Webcam cover, slider thingy, D-Link Luggage Tag, a pen from someone, Autel Robotics, "Remove before Flight" zipper pull.  I have one on my backpack.  CES stuff!
      Rules.  Subscribe on Patreon.  You gotta stay at least a month! BTW, I use Patreon to pay hosting fees, backups, software licenses, etc.  It helps tremendously!
      Go here - http://patreon.com/davidmccabe  Sign up for any level.  I will probably draw this out on February 9th, 2018.

    • Trying to help a local small business setup firewall/router in two locations with VPN site to site. 
      They have a very limited budget, under $250 per site.
      I was looking at:
      Cisco RV320
      Ubiquiti Enterprise Gateway Router
      Anyone worked with either/both of these?
      Other recomendations?
