HamRadioExam – Technicians License. Those of you looking for Ham Radio study guides, licensing questions, study help etc. go no further… give Roy W.’s app HamRadioExam a try.

Although time seems to fly by, need to find time to study, test and pass this exam. Also, as with most secondary actions or things you might ‘want’ to do, don’t continue to push off the testing… Try the Ham Radio Exam App – Technician License for yourself. With a swipe of a finger, test your knowledge, take practice tests and practice quizzes on the side. Clash of Clans, Conflict of Nations WW3 aside… most of our time has been practicing for this exam. Overkill? Maybe, but like many certifications, licensing, there are times when you just need to know the basics. In this case, Ham Radio operators have to take a greater responsibility with their hobby per say. Why? The FCC fines…

Let’s start with ARRL membership, not needed… but have a look before you dive into the FCC licensing funnel. Anyhow ongoing testing is worth the days, weeks or few months to master the knowledge base required to pass your exam via HamRadioExam – Technician License now. Just took a peak at the local exam schedule – ARRL (Amateur Radio Assoc.) for our own testing time. More importantly, if you have not started the process, start here on the ARRL site, learn why you should earn your Ham Radio License.

GTRacing Update

#GTRacingFrameFail #GTRacingChair #GTRacing?

GTRacing Chair Parts Replaced. Will It Break?

Dare I say GTRacing made it right? In hindsight yes, while being desk chair free for a week/week1/2, no. Another new chair part relegated to the game and electronics drawer. A full listing to come, however, a sneak peak may serve its weight in gold here… Check out the latest merchandise, give us a shout if you would like to purchase our gear – new products next quarter. We are looking to sort out some USB devices, stickers and magnets, depending on demand. Let us know what you think about the merch, or if your looking for something special, one off, special order.

Office Chair, Ergo Ball, Desks and Comfy Game Chair

What’s in your office?

#GTRacing #Serta #Gaiam #adjDesk #officeStyle

This Office Life, see what we use, our daily driver (comfy game chair), adjustable desk, Gaiam desk chair for guests. Traditional office setting, new materials and comfy options

GT Racing fan? Trading up day, moving on from the traditional office/exec chair, like the current ergo-exec chair Serta Jennings – B/T Ergo Chair sitting in the office today. Today, we go racing! GT Racing is the gaming chair of choice, my choice moving forward. Pictures to follow once received. More specifically, the GTRacing GTX320-Black. Reviews look good, leather, good support, comfort like a car seat (personal selling point) – including height-adjustable arms, lumbar and headrest, and near 170° recline. Shipping is a few days out, bummer. However, the new chair will compliment the office space quite well.

The current setup here in the office includes a height-adjustable desk, which the title allows the desk to be raised and lowered with a manual paddle-like button… A more modern, Gaiam yogi-chair balance chair… but now I’m thinking, the longer sitting times might need a bit of an upgrade, that car-like seat for extended coding sessions and conference/phone calls. Coding sessions are a bit cumbersome, back pain included. So, it’s time for that upgrade.

#phpbbDig #lost #reDuex

PHPBB T.K.O (TOTAL KNOCK OUT) – Oh boy, PHPBB instance goes down in flames, spam/spam bots, and Viagra ads. So with the new year, comes a new PHPBB issue; a large issue. Looks like with a PHPBB autoconfig…

(( POOOF )) ((( LOST ))) PHPBB pulled a Dracula, poof back to to it’s former self. All is lost – the design, skin changes, GA, users, hackers/spammers, everything. Not a good thing, base code, base skin, base php code and plugins. Fact, aliens have NOT taken over this implementation, “spammers” came home to roost.

We’ve been battling spam and hackery for 8 months, pictures will follow. This implementation is the second to fall, USpam2 was all sorts of hacked and blocked. This will make sense in due time, once we get the sites up and running again. Backups help, anyway, this site was nixed, vanished, gone…

I’m sure we will post more on the subject, plenty to cover in future posts… plugins OH MY, Backup/Restore, New Styles added to the Styles area… Anyhow, sign up, sign in and leave a comment, or start a group.

Top 4 NES – Commando, Commando – Take That Flag

Thanks to @NES_Longplay for the walk-through/play-through. This was a late add, should’ve been out sometime in ’20… but, you know… today is the day it gets published to no fault of our own. Nor the scheduling mechanism.


To no avail, the stars aligned etc., Commando became reality. Game play is fantastic, painful long arduous process, leading to a never ending cycle of failed attempts. Unless of course you wait 20+ years, you’ve got yourself the ole’ map published on the web somewhere… and a cause of energy drink, coffee or tea. You might need a lot more, but let’s live big; in the moment. Believe you me, wish we had the map way back when. Although, have to admit, this game was one of those games that never ended… hence the need for walk-through. Commando is still on the list of ‘have not’s, meaning it’s still on the bucket list of games to dig up, play and complete the game. That’s where we live you today, 20 years in the making.

Puget Systems

The Best, Puget Systems

#puget #pugetSys #PugetSystems #PremierePro

We choose Puget. From a far, we can’t wait to get our hands on one of these machines… Saving up for our own custom Puget.

Puget Systems… ’nuff said (JK) as the kids would say. Seriously, if you haven’t heard about these guys… legit. Have a look at the recommendations for ‘software’ specific needs. We tend to gravitate to those machines curtailed for Adobe Premiere, Illustrator or Photoshop. Habitual I guess. The point here is simple, looking for the best? Here is the best, Puget Systems.


I don’t want to go over board here but pricing can ultimately curb your decisions, but some decisions need to be made outside the box. Meaning if it’s your business, you need to the best. Best for the application, the user and the end user/customer. One of our favorites, check ’em out, Puget Systems.

Who needs matches or a lighter, when you got a UST BLASTMATCH

#blastThis #blastThat #blastMatches #EDCpack #EDC

EDC Camping Accessories – USTBlast Match – Have a look, take your pick, WE USE THIS ONE ;0 – USTBlast Match. Looking for a last minute gift?

Used from time to time, even the times when we are sharing a beverage around the campfire. Although, campfires have been on hold, a winter hiatus if you will. But any case, these blast matches are fantastic in a pinch or in leisure as stated above. There are plenty of videos, product reviews out there, we want bore you with another ‘product plug’; but we will encourage you to have one handy.

Take your time with the contraption, the rod can shift side-to-side when striking the intended surface that would cause a ‘shower of sparks’. Stick with it, it will be worth it, certainly more practical than a fire bow of sorts or empty lighter. Just for the record, we always tuck a few Bic lighters in various pockets of the camping pack and ‘wearable’ clothing. Again, typically there is a lighter on my person as a daily carry item. Some will tuck a lighter, some cotton balls, an EDC (every day carry) knife or camp knife. Key is to be prepared if you are camping, trekking, on-the-trail or stuck in a situation where you might need a light. Good luck.

Output Updates – New Gear, Gadgets, Games, Lessons and Updates (flashback)… Jan something, face-in-hands “…need more content”…

What feels like many moons later, months of heads-down work, rework (more rework to fill time) and a little magic; VOILA! More stuff, stuff to read, view and whatever else you do on the interwebs. All coming your way mid ’21.

Got some juicy StarWars stuff, sans – cartoons, one offs, Mandalorian, figures/toys/collectables and comic books. By the way, code is a fun thing… love Starwars, just check the source or is it “Use the Source!” Great holiday gifts include the Seinfeld series, power tools, hosting issues (boo on Hostgator, Blue host and Endurance). While we are at it, need to build some Lego stuff, maybe crack open the RPi4 for some nonsense. GA(Google Analytics what?). Maybe some WrdP Add includes. Anyhow, you can find fire videos over on 1Fyr.com | mbemo.com.

By the way, Mbemo already got hacked HA! F*$(#* SPAMMERS! Anyway, It’s back up, running… deleted a bunch of posts, forums and general whatnot. Resetting the system does the trick this time, cleaned up/purged all the ‘non-real’ peps using the boards. Future-self, perhaps can move some of these topics to the BB MBemo BB’s boards.

MBP Mid’18

MBP Board and Battery

#macbookProErrors #macSSDHD_Crash #macSSDHD_Alive #MBPBattery #batteryFail #Mid_late’18

Apple MBP Battery and Logicboard Issues/Failure – We takedown, refresh and reboot this MBPBattery and Logic Board Failure – Complete teardown, replace and reboot.

Update, matter of fact, primary machine we are running that latest applications and code on. Quick update, mid ’18 Macbook Pro crashed via upgrade from Mojave/Catalina to BigSur. This ‘upgrade’ went along with the mid summer/late summer updates via WWDC. Anyway, we go through boot issues, kernel panic, reinstall post reformat MAC Journaled to AFPS… and finally installer packages, boot scripts, an install of Ubuntu 21 sans mouse or keyboard functionality and more. They say pictures are worth a thousands or more words, so let’s take a peek. Oh, and don’t forget ‘csrutil’ enable and disable for unwanted apps, native apps and clearing system integrity ‘issues’. This command only works when you run Recovery Mode, Terminal Utility… we can just leave that there for another day. One other item to note, this is all MacOS specific, assuming your running a MacOS alt OS on a Windows (PC), Linux, Linux Alternatives and/or VM, downloads are available and are similar when unpacking the root cause.

  • Flash Old Version of MacOS and Installer Package
  • Create USB Install via Terminal
  • Etcher
  • Check OS Version (if possible) MacOs Version Compatibility
  • Reset PRAM, Run Diagnostics, Internet Recovery, Target Disk to Move existing files; all there, just make sure you know what version of MacOS. If you don’t, click the ‘Apple’ Icon at the top/left -> Select About This Mac -> Overview. This assumes you have a running version of MacOS. Or check the Apple Product# on the underside of your Macbook Pro and work forward…
  • MacOS Startup KeyBoard Combinations
  • Diagnose Error Codes -1008F, Address Overheating and Fan Control
  • Apple Support thread specific to -1008f
  • Remove Device from iCloud – Find Device, Disable AFPS Admin Security Settings
  • Backup Drive to external storage device
  • Handy Drive SanDisk Drive
  • Clean/Remove Drive, Remove AFPS Drive/Volume(s)
  • Internet Recovery High Sierra, MacOS and Installer Package (Pre El Capitan, Yosemite or Lion)
  • MacOS Mojave
  • MacOS High Sierra
  • Boot MacOS Install, Reinstall Existing Apps, Install Catalina working patches, updates
  • Install New Apps, Settings and Remove unwanted settings as it relates to latest OS
  • Maintain existing MacOS sans MacOS OS Upgrades or Forced Updates, Uncheck installation automation for all apps, requiring system to be manually updated
  • Bootcamp Install, Flash/Install WIN10, Throw-out old server (Z400)
  • ISOs – MS – WIN10.iso, Ubuntu – Ubuntu 21.10
  • With the addition of MacOS Server

Key takeaways, note make/model, year, shipped quarter, chipset(s) and chip security settings… if your computer is locked, check iCloud device status, remember install package pre/post logic board changes. We chose this routs since all logic boards for this particular machine have been out of stock and remain out of stock for this particular model… hmmm wonder why? No need to replace the battery just yet… may have to on the second go around.

When I get a chance, we will post a few pictures of WIN10 running in Boot Camp, Ubuntu 21 running with keyboard or mouse support, and other images for MacOS Server etc. As usual leave a comment below, let us know what you’re thinking?
