…testing …testing …testing in progress. Testing this one out as we speak (well, when I wrote this post and of course, when you read it. Let’s hope we are in the same year (might as well be totally separate but you get the point)… We are looking for ways to protect our investments online and pentests/vulnerability scanning tools might just be the ticket.

We have two running now, one from Pentest-Tools and the other Scantrics.io (nothing so far, these have been running for a few mins now, which may or may not be a good sign or way to predict the outcome. We will ultimately go through a few more, including Selenium, LoadRunner, JMeter, QTP, HTML/JS/PHP (PHP Unit) Validators, Guru99 a few others… but let’s start here.

We are using free tools below, so, keep this in mind when looking through the results once compiled and reported (said service provider). Additionally, free-premium tools don’t usually present the full picture, grain of salt; use multiple tools or pay the premium price… We like to use multiples, a mixture of free-premium services and validators.

S21 5G

Galaxy S215G

More performance, less pain to privacy with optional dual sim card capability

Our S21 Experience

#samsung #galaxy #s215G #s22Update

Choose wisely young Skywalker; Pain-to-Privacy, Cost-to-Performance, our take on the matter.

Update* The decision was changed, while the S205G over iPhone11/iPhone12/S21/S22 idea worked in theory… The reality here is dual sim cards are a ‘go’ on S10 and S22, not on the S20. So, we had to do a quick U Turn here and swap the S20 for the S21. We opted for the standard size, S22+ or Ultra not an ideal size for our needs. Again, the device is not the latest, nor the greatest; it’s the best for our needs. Galaxy Series 22 | 22+, here is the comparison page we started with – S Model Comparison – 22 Ultra, 22+ and S21.

After many, many months of testing; many… retesting and learning more about eSims or electronic sim cards, allowing for us to maintain ownership of the latest software, hardware etc, we ultimately pulled the ripcord and decided on the S21…. better battery life than the S10 (w dual sim option or hybrid sim option allowing for multiple numbers on a single device), 5g cellular service, upgrades to the hardware – display, camera, when comparing other S Models, None Samsung devices – Pixel, Xperia, iPhone. and other Samsung models like the Flip or Fold. S Model remains affordable in tough device saturated market, top of it’s class as far as usability, user experience, control, privacy* and blot… Comparable ROI in the market when comparing price/performance. We placed an *asterisk on privacy, we maintain/secure the device as much as possible without relying on Samsung, Google or other third party hacks to maintain security. A lot of work, but worth the pain/privacy ratio.. this pain/privacy is quickly becoming the ‘elephants in the room’.

Anyhow, check out comments, do you research… iOS 16 is out now, good luck!

S205G

Galaxy S205G

Time to switch? iPhone-to-Galaxy? Or LinuxOS?

Galaxy 20s5g

#samsung #galaxy #s210G #s9 #linuxMobile LinuxOS

We make our decision and share why we made the decision we did.

The decision is in. S205G over iPhone11/iPhone12/S21/S22… latest. We are not talking the latest Galaxy Series or the Z-Fold, or the iPhone 13

It’s taken many months, hell it’s taken years of ‘practice’ per-say to change, make the decision to switch; ultimately practice makes perfect. Well, let’s stick with practice, practice and more practice!

Nothing like everything MacOS/iOS, Yes, everything MacOS, iOS… So, what comes with the decision? Yes the UI familiarity, did I mention all the machines we use on a day-to-day basis are MacOS? Yes, we are certified to service these machines? Yes, comfort, it’s what we’ve always done… Safety, security, battery life, ease of use… on and on and on. Yes, all true including the use of iPhone/iOS products and services since 2006.

Practice, makes more practice. That’s a lot of practice in my book. Quickly, historically speaking, and assuming my memory is correct, we made the initial jump from the Blackberry and Blackberry Products specifically – Blackberry 8100 (’06) series and the 8300 (’07) Series to the iPhone… and for what reason and one reason alone? Touchscreen keys, the main reason at the time was incompatible, or lack of practice with onscreen-typing or touchscreen services. No can do, not down with the Blackberry touch model (whatever it was called). I’ll touch on a story real quick… Many moons ago, I remember sitting in a multi-million dollar test lab (usability lab), testing the latest UI designs/services etc…. and a user was ‘testing’ via the Blackberry Storm… I’ll spare you the pain, let’s just say during that specific test, the Blackberry touch devices were out, iPhone was in. Iphone 3G. Yes, it was early on, yes it was a Blackberry (the workhorse of many business years), yes, in a controlled lab experiment; it failed. Back to the reality, specific to iOS/iPhones, it’s been many, many year of practice, perhaps too many. I included in the link above, the specifically comparing the iPhone 13, 11 and iPhone 6s in the for those who want a quick glimpse into how the greater iOS device ecosystem has changed over the years… However, this is where those years of experience came to an interesting fork in the road.

Sometime in that 2017 2nd/3rd Quarter timeframe, the Samsung Galaxy made sense… road warrior tested, first the S9, s10 and moving quickly to 2022; the s205G model. I carried a work phone iOS device, the Galaxy and a few laptops with various OS platforms, etc. Yes, what a pain. In any case, I will spare you the details. Eventually, after the 100% travel, multi-device, same hotel staying… it was time to move on and although a few months behind schedule today, with the S20 we made the switch. Living life on the road, traveling for clients, nearly broke the iPhone spell if you will… those formed over years and years of costly iPhone devices, turn over and damage control. I think I mentioned this above, also the testing dollars, studying time and the certification time spent on learning, applying and maintaining iOS products, services, and the need to ‘fix’ iOS devices. Before I move off this point, we didn’t buy new, we didn’t buy direct and $1k saved made a difference in this experiment.

Buying new may be your thing, today it wasn’t ours nor is it moving forward. Matter of fact, you yourself can pick up many of our favorite devices second hand or ‘renewed’ today. So, not to belabor the point, you might ask – how did we come to buy the S205G? ((Panic)) The process was long and arduous. No, we simply had to test what was out there. We made the choice to buy the right product, put my money on the best option for me. What better way than trying everything on the market? We tried them all (mostly all). Everything from barebones, stripped Android/iOS and Linux older generational phones like the iPhone 8/11 series, Galaxy S9/S10, S20, old school Nokia 3300, the LightPhone2 and came back to the S20 model. Honestly, let’s touch on the Linux OS option first, until we have a Linux OS Linux based phone that can serve the masses. More here, check out these options Ubuntu Touch or Sailfsh or Pure. Beyond the scope of OS brands or builds, the device spread is fairly limited – OnePlus, Fairphone, Google Pixel 3 (3a), Pine, and Librem… So, limitation. Second point, do your research, before you buy of course… yes, buyer beware. Use caution, learn how to use command line code, service your own device, install via working code branch, OS varietals etc. Additionally, for now and until those Linux devices are ‘EDC’ (Everyday Carry) ready, and I mean not suited for the Developer class, it’s the Galaxy series phones… Not talking the 20+, Ultra or the S21 series.

Let’s wrap this up, I guess the meat and potatoes is this. We did it, doesn’t mean it is right or wrong, do what you think make sense for your budget, way of life and protection/security. The main reason for the switch is ‘control’, battery life, screen, performance and SIRI. Can’t stand SIRI, more over… Samsung has maintained a normal growth pattern, where (in our opinion) iOS hides, changes buttons/connection types/cases/materials pretty regularly, same with the auto ‘on’ features for data collection… Yes, Yes, I know this could be a preference, this is much the same for all devices. Crazy, how in just over 17 years, iOS is everywhere. Oh, and one last point. Did I mention, this is not a plug for any device/devices of choice, more a reminder to do the ‘testing’ part before you buy. Hopefully, this article helps to promote that step toward ‘testing’ what’s on the market.

Sous Vide

Sous Vide?

Have you tried a sous vide machine? We cover the Anova Precicion® Series Sous Vide

Anova Precision® Series Sous Vide

#sousVide #foodSaver #aSous? #ANOVA #@IHR

Say what? Sous Vide? What’s a sous vide? Give the Anova Sous Vide a go.

A sous vide, you say? Have you used one yet? We went with the Anova brand sous vide cooker. Specifically the Anova Precision® system with the 16 liter container. (( SHOUT OUT )) @IHR, we got a tip from a local restaurateur (awesome guy, awesome stuff blasting out of the kitchen by the way), the sous vide is a great way to step up your kitchen game. These Anova cookers can be found at your local wholesale warehouse. Listen, there are days when you need a little pick me up, special sauce; a little kitchen magic if you will… a little magic to whip up something special in the kitchen, and those of us who wish we had some real skills or talent in the kitchen*. The sous vide machine just might do the trick.

Taco proteins – Beef, Chicken, Pork, Fish, Shirmp etc., Briskets, Duck to Corned Beef, you name it, the sous vide does it. The only caveat is time. If you can set aside time for prep, create your entrees and sides, vacuum seal the pouches and done. Generally, we set aside a 30-60 mins for prep, 2 – 10 hours for cooking. This of course depends on the type of beef, we’ve tried the toughest, unfriendly kind and this sous vide machine kicks it’s *#$. Meaning, regardless of the time the meat took a bath, the result is what we’ve come to know as excellent.

We say kick the tires, have at it, the sous vide makes it easy to prep both sides and entrees, heat and cook dishes at an exact temperature. If you want, you can control the temperature home or away with the Anova app (we don’t use it now), helpful when starting down the path of bathwater cooking. Whatever meat, veggie, protein etc. is submerged will be kept at the temperature you want. This beast does it all. If you have time and the patience to learn how this thing works… May be a few cuts of beef or chicken, some cleaned/de-veined shrimp or a breast of duck. 3 easy steps, let the machine do it’s thing… you’re upping your kitchen game from zero skills to an arbiter of food stardom. This machine does require sealed packaging, from zipper bags to vacuum sealed bags – check out Anova’s Vacuum Sealer or Amazon – Anova Sealer.

World Changing for us. Listen, there are many kitchen gadgets, gimmicks, tricks, secrets, family recipes etc. that can spice up your game. We believe this sous vide machine is a long-term investment, and thought you might want to have a go at it too. We did and it made a whole lot of difference. We share a few shots of our kitchen setup, prep gear, finishing and clean up.

*Don’t beat us up in the comments, we are simply stating ‘we’ wanted to be better in and around the kitchen; we needed serious help LOL. So we found some!

GTX320 – Blk/Blk

Dare I say GTRacing made it right? In hindsight yes, while I didn’t have a desk chair for a week/week1/2, no.

Quickly, I wanted to give the support team/info team a ((SHOUT)), thanks for the help. You can reach the GT Racing Support Team here.

Situation, back in March my GTX – GTRacing chair had an internal fail, specifically the back frame/support failed. Once replaced, the failed back part was removed and replaced with the new. No charge for the part as the chair was under warranty, a few bucks were refunded based on the inconvenience and service/care. GTRacing took care of the shipping, new part and shared a quick note that was shared with their parts folks…. indicating what took place, the need to correct the matter and batch/part of failure.

Anyway, take a look at GTRacing for a chair, desk, tech gear and/or accessories.

#migsTigs #lincolnElectric #weldThis #morePower //

Are we plugging the Lincoln Electric Pro 140? Specs screenshot below… The 120 volt, 140 amp MIG Welder? That we are. Now, pricing has changed, market availability, all the non-sense… But we are sticking to what we’ve been recommended here. I would say we are ‘large stock newbies’ when it comes to welding anything. And I mean anything. Crazy right? So, the question, with anything new… What is the best product for a large variety of steel stock, what’s the cost, what’s the warranty? I mean literally we could go on for days… So, what would you recommend? We are putting something out there for your feedback? What say you?

The Ask: Welding both MIG and TIG, complimentary plasma cutter? (Mitre Saw review to follow) What is easier to use, stick welding or auto feed welders? We need it all!

We may try a new series on welding, mitre saws and power supplies, specifically for more cumbersome jobs, scaling up -electronics to heavy stock steals… probably third quarter ’22. Stay Tuned.

Clearly, one of the better NES/SNES games out there, same for the arcade game. This brings back ‘haunting memories’, some good, some bad. The reason why they were more ‘haunting’ was just trying to figure the game out as a newb-gamer back in the 80’s

#GTRacing #Serta #Gaiam #adjDesk #officeStyle //

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.
