My long serving Nexus 5X suffered the impact of a HotWheels car crashing down onto it fingerprint scanner, knocking it unresponsive 🙁 This was just the motivation I needed to pick up a new phone, and I’ve had my eye on the OnePlus 6T since it’s recent release 🙂 I opted for the 128 GB model, as that’s more than I will need in the near future… and one of…

In my quest to get sonic-pi to run on Linux, and also free up a port on my router, I’ve been trying to login to view Raspberry Pi Desktop from Ubuntu… as usual with any Linux endeavor, with limited success; but think that’s the attraction: a puzzle to solve, with a solution out there… I’ve just gotta find it 🙂 I had installed tightvncserver on the Raspberry Pi, and remmina…
