Deleting files with the same name

Recently I replaced my old QNAP nas with a HP ProLiant MicroServer N54L. I then wanted to move everything I had from the QNAP nas to my new HP server, and it all went well, except for a lot of trash files I wanted to get rid of.

Western Digital discriminating?

About a year ago, I bought a Western Digital TV Live Hub so I could watch my movies and hear my music in the living room conveniently from the sofa. During the year I had the Live Hub I have had multiple problems. It randomly could suddenly lose the ability to browse the folder it just had played from, it could suddenly stop in […]

Today I got my new Ambilight from adafruit. Getting it connected took less than 5 minutes, so I was quickly ready to start looking at how to mount all the LEDs behind my screen. Could use tape… but… Could ziptie it, maybe… Hang it like christmas lights? naaah! Why not 3D print something? Great idea! Here is my way of […]
