Ubuntu MATE, Not Just a Whim

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 15:30:00 +0000

I've stated for years how much I dislike Ubuntu's Unity interface. Yes, it's become more polished through the years, but it's just not an interface that thinks the same way I do.

Build Your Own Raspberry Pi Camera

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 09:30:00 +0000

During the past few years, my BirdCam setup has evolved significantly. As I mention in the UpFront section of this issue, I hope to get the stream transferred to a YouTube Live stream at some point, so I can watch the feathery show on my television.
