    • 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.

      Cheap cross country moving options If you are concerned about just how much a cross country move may price, think about a DIY alternative like U-Pack®. And with flexible space options that readily accommodate small studio apartments, large multi-bedroom homes, and everything in-between, U-Pack is an inexpensive solution however much you're moving. How flexible space makes transport across country cheap U-Pack is a"cover for the space you need" service, so you won't cover any unused room (like you would if you have too large of a rental truck). By only charging for the space that your household goods use, we make it effortless to control rates. Here is an example: But if you've got fewer belongings than a normal house or can package and load nicely, you can use less room and save money. If you are using a trailer, the quote will offer a cost dependent on the estimated distance you will want, but additionally, it will show a'per foot alteration' speed that will help you keep tabs on your own cost. Should you use less distance, subtract that amount to get a much cheaper move! For more space, simply add on the adjustment speed to observe the new price. ReloCube prices are based on the whole number of containers, so using fewer containers can create your cross country move cheaper. Other reasons U-Pack is one of the cheapest methods to move across country Do not have a lot to get rid of? U-Pack is still a cheap alternative! While we have a minimum distance requirement (either 1 container or 5 linear feet in the trailer), people moving from small homes or flats can still see significant cost savings compared to other cross country movers. How do we take action? By offering efficient transport, multiple shipping options and comprehensive quotes. Efficient transport network ABF Freight®, our primary transport provider, is among the main reasons we're able to offer cheap cross country moving services. To keep costs low, commercial freight is put in the equipment together with your possessions, separated by a safe divider wall. As the shipment goes across the country, professional drivers load and load cargo, but your belongings never go. A city driver delivers the family products after the shipment reaches destination. Cost-saving delivery alternative Many U-Pack customers choose door-to-door delivery for advantage. But for a cheaper move, pick a terminal-to-terminal shipping. While it will require slightly bit more work, there's possibility to save up to $300. No surprise fees There are no extra charges for the fuel, transportation, taxes or basic liability policy -- it's all contained in the quote. The only way the price increases is if you add extra services such as loading, storage assistance or guaranteed transit, or use more distance than quoted. Receive a quote Want to find out how economical your cross country transfer will probably be with U-Pack? Get an internet quote or phone us in 800-413-4799. Prices are based on locations, house size and move date. If you have some questions about saving money on shipping household goods across state, remark below.

      Probably a historical relic?  UniFi doesn't use Java at all.

      It isn't designed as a standalone a la carte system (buying just one or a few AP's).  The key architectural benefit of UniFi is that is uses an Enterprise (some may say "Enterprise-like") centralized management model using an integrated web console to manage all their devices.

      From a "single pane of glass" you can manage Unifi Switches, Access Points, Security Gateway/Router, etc.  Although individual products come close to "best of breed" on their own merits (and most exceed the typical consumer products like Eero, Orbi, etc.) I wouldn't suggest anyone try UniFi unless they are interested in a unified view of their network and/or plan on using at least some of their gear beyond simple AP's.

      Honestly, the systems to compare it to are Cisco, Open Mesh, Ruckus, Meraki, etc.  In that league of product, UniFi is the only one that is widely available to consumers, doesn't require restrictive dealer training/authorization, and be purchased one piece at a time.

      In the consumer space, it is really suitable for the power user / hacker /expert that hates hardware that hides or limits features, considers the user "stupid" that needs to be protected from themselves, etc.

      Whereas with a Cisco or traditional gear you are going to have learn a cryptic, proprietary command line language and an entire philosophy of operation to configure and get the most out of the gear, Unifi can be completely installed and operated by very straightforward mobile apps or a nice full-size web browser.   Uber users can SSH to any UniFi gear and have direct command line access to a real Unix/Linux kernel - if you know what you are doing, you can install your own modules and reconfigure anything - even things not exposed in the regular GUI web interface.

      Having said that, many of their products can be used as "dumb" hardware devices if you don't actually configure them (e.g.  they have a nice line of 8-port PoE Smart Ethernet switches, but if you just plug them in and use them they work fine as "dumb" switches.)   In particular, the AP's by themselves can be set up in "standalone mode" with a few clicks of their smartphone app.  You don't get all the benefits of the centralized management system, but you can do it (I say don't; stick with Eero or other things if you aren't going to use real capability of UniFi).

      I'm sorry that I let that tip spill out of my cache. I should keep notes when I fix things rather than hoping to re-find the answer.
