My IoT Exploration – Part 1 – The Failure

Last Christmas I got an Arduino starter kit for present. It took me a long time to finally open the box and have an idea about what I should do with it. What I’ve found challenging about learning new stuff that I don’t have an immediate use for, is the lack of a clear goal. Making an LED blink isn’t all that exiting in my mind and even though I like the projects in the starter kit, I didn’t do them until I had a project of my own figured out. Read →

WinDock Configuration for my 21:9 Screen

Hi have recently bought an ultra-wide monitor for my desk at home, a Dell U3415W. I’m using it both for work as a coder and for my personal needs such as photo editing, web browsing and watching films.

So, when I draw the conclusion that the old computer didn’t cut it any more, I had a few different options. Read →

Lenovo X1 Carbon with Windows 10

I have recently got the chance to upgrade my work computer from an old, heavy and ugly machine with almost no battery life and a terrible screen to something new and shiny. I ended up getting the third generation Lenovo X1 Carbon (unfortunately without touch screen for budget reasons). This is my experience so far of that machine running Windows 10. figure.lazy { display: none; } I really like the X1 Carbon. Read →

Building a Mini-PC in 2014

Recently I helped my sister with a new computer. Her previous one was typical low-end desktop machine that you would find in any of the big stores. As such, it was bulky and with time had become very noisy. So when I took the “assignment” to find a new one I was looking for something configurable, smaller, with a decent value for money and something my sister would perceive as “new”. Read →
