Google Colab with Private Repos in Other organizations

Well, I’ve tried a number of other hosted Jupyter environments from Google AI Platform Notebook to Saturn and I keep coming back to Google Colab for one reason mainly: We don’t have things that are that complex (yet!), so simplicity is key and Colab is just so simple to use with everything you need already […]

Merry Xmas Eve and update on dongles (and fires)

OK, a quick report on my life with dongles and other attachments for MacBooks. Suffice to say these dongles definitely have a spotty record for me.

Quick Take Xmas Gifts: Keyboards Mikes, Hubs and Mice in 2020

Keeping NordVPN going on MacOS High Sierra

But there are quite a few other things […]

Air cleaners redux on Molekule and review vs BlueAir Blue Pure 211+

Well we’ve got everyone in our extended family air filters. We ended up getting a HEPA filter made by BlueAir called the Blue Pure 211+ for $300 at Amazon. I can’t actually tell if it works, but it is quiet. The other company that has gotten buzz has been Molekule. They have an additional filter […]

Finally fixed overscan on a LG C9 or CX

I don’t know if this will work for other displays but I’ve never been able to get an LG to scan properly. This has worked without adjustment for most Samsung television that I’ve used. While some folks on Reddit say to turn Pixel Shift off, this is called Screen Shift and lives in Settings > […]
