I first got a copy of The Application Book by Tim Mangan as an early look of something I would review online. It was outstanding. Having edited several books in the past, I was compelled to provide lots of unsolicited feedback which he happily accepted. Later Tim asked that I provide a forward for the book which I was honored to do.
Getting CGMiner running on Raspberry Pi was a fun challenge. I really don’t know but a few simple Unix commands so it was a painful process, but here are the steps and links I took to make it happen.
DirecTV to AppleTV. It’s not as complicated as it sounds and may be obvious to someone who has all the parts, but here’s how I pulled it off.
I love my gadgets. I’ve been buying up the latest toys for some time and am the target audience when it comes to products by Apple and now Microsoft. However, Apple has been doing this for a while and I’m invested now. What would it take for me to jump on a new platform (and what that really means is to invest in another set of applications)?
After seeing the dreaded “VMware Fusion internal monitor error” (NOT_IMPLEMENTED report) from VMWare, a quick look around pointed me to VirtualBox as the way to go and I can confirm it was a simple process to get it up and running. Below are what I used, the steps I took and some things I learned along the way installing Windows 8 on my MacBook Pro with VirtualBox.
I started with an eBook published by Real Time Publishers on the topic of Windows Desktop Administration. I then wrote a second digital book on the KiXtart scripting language with the intention of seeing it go to print. Agilty press was sold to Mann Publishing and did print one edition of the book which was well received. My last book was the first that was straight to print and for a major publisher, unfortunately the topic was Deploying and Administering Windows Vista which was devastatingly unpopular. Each was a great deal of work which took many months to see through. Today I much prefer simple articles and blog posts and have no aspirations to write additional books.
