    • OMG I'm watching HGTV off of my HDHomeRun Connect!
      I just subscribed to HD HomeRun Premium TV to see what it is all about.  Hello, I'm watching HGTV now!  Over ten years cutting the cord and this is a first.  All of those years have been with SiliconDust and the HDHR.  I had the older white ones with two coax inputs and I recall the move to the newer unit with only a single coax input as mind blowing!  I had two of the older ones so coax and splitters were a big mess.  Now, I have OTA and a good handful of cable channels.  I'm configuring it on Plex as I type this up.

    • Microsoft announced a new Surface device last night, the Surface Go.  The announcement felt forced as leaks were dropping all over the place so it looks like the Surface Team just said, "what the heck," post it! 
      It's a confusing addition to the family. Remember Surface 3?  The Go is a much improved device but I'll have to get my hands on it in order to fully judge it.  I loved the 3 and still own it with a dock.
      It starts at $399 which is great but the hardware is a bit limited at that price point.  It starts with the Pentium Gold 4415y processor. Here is a comparison to show you some characteristics versus the Core i3. It also starts at 4Gb of RAM and a 64Gb eMMC drive.  It's only 1.15 pounds and will have LTE options in the future.
      I've read a ton of posts on this device where there is "target market" confusion.  Read it for yourself straight from Microsoft's mouth. "Empower your workforce with the lightest, most compact Surface yet"

      Here is the announcement post - https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/surface/business/surface-go
      Most articles are comparing it to iPad's and Chromebooks and although i think it will be a good alternative to the Chromebook I don't think it is a direct compare to the iPad nor targeting it.  I think it is a build that came from direct feedback from the working market.  A light portable with pen ability that doesn't cost $1500 if it is dropped. Pretty simple.

      My biggest disappointment is the keyboard.  Yup, gotta add $99 if you don't want to type on glass.
      Will enthusiasts buy it? Couch PC? Reader by the bed?  This little Surface has a lot of merit on paper so we will see how it holds up when it ships on August 2nd.  Let me know down below if you are going to get one.

      This one is new to me but the coin is not.  BAT Coin may sound funny but it is a serious "ALT" coin.

      So, what do my fellow geeks have on their Christmas Lists, presuming of course that you have all been nice and Santa's going to sort you out over the festive period?....   Personally, I'm more of a need guy, I prefer practical gifts and things that I will use rather than things that I have to feign interest in, not one for wasting money.. I'd like a new iPad mini, but the Mini 4 is years old now so I'm kinda holding out for a refresh before I stump up the money for one myself, but my old Mini2 is about dead, its had 2 new screens and can be a bit random sometimes with ghost clicks, so that's about the only thing I'd ask for from a geek POV, socks is a given, since we have a 16 year old that wears holes in my socks and doesn't wear them in pairs..   Other than that, if I want something, I'll buy it myself at some point, apparently that makes me a nightmare to buy for..     Whats everyone else wanting....

      Paul,   I first used FreeNAS 9.10 and messed around with iohyve and later iocage at the CLI.   I've never been sold on the idea of rancheros + rancherUI  just to use a couple of docker apps. Corral was dumped before I had really evaluated it, but it showed great promise.  Personally, I'd go the debian/ubuntu + docker + portainer route.  When you look at outstanding issues like this https://redmine.ixsystems.com/issues/28578 , it doesn't inspire confidence.   FreeNAS 11.1 has had a lot of hiccups, and too many bugs for my liking. FreeNAS 11.2 might get there, but looking at  the number of issues pushed to 11.2-U1  at https://redmine.ixsystems.com/versions/479 I'll be sticking with 11.1 for now.    I had a quick look a NAS4Free (XigmaNAS), testing in virtualbox.  The RootOnZFS seems to work, but it's a community contribution and it's limited in many other areas compared to FreeNAS.  It wouldn't  be my next choice.

      I think the hole is for an M3 countersunk, but the Gen8 ODD bracket does not work in the Gen10. I tried mounting the bracket upside down after drilling a small hole in it that aligns to the mounting hole in the chassis. I used a nylon screw to secure it, so as to not have any metal dust. It works, but it is not something I can manufacture. There are 3D printer plans for brackets that will work.
