Officially, my wife and I are now Florida homeowners!! Closed on the property this mourning. I think we will be leaving in Oct/16 and not returning until late April/17. Right now it's cold outside and chance of rain later in the week. Spoke to a friend in Florida this mourning and it's in the mid 70s', expecting to get to the mid 80s' today. We've got a great community in Florida with loads of activities. Keep the wife busy, while I golf!!

RaspEX Build 160402: Now with Kodi (XBMC) Media Center, Bluetooth, Samba, SSH and VNC4Server

NEWS 160402 ABOUT RaspEX
I discovered to my horror that Build 160331 of RaspEX for Raspberry Pi 3/2 didnít have support for YouTube in Kodi Media Center. Many Add-ons (extensions) in Kodi are dependent on the YouTube Add-on.

While I was at it I took the opportunity to install some additional popular Music, Video and Picture Add-ons.

Open SuSE

Posted 03-31-2016 at 12:22 PM by shsmith

If you read my last blog entry, you know that I was having problems with the old computer that I just installed Open SuSE on. Well, I got the RAM problem sorted out. I went to my neighbor's house to take care of a windows problem for him and when I came back, there was a funny smell. And it was coming out of the power supply for that computer. So, it looks like the fun continues...

Honestly, that tower is the first one I built, vintage around 2001. So I really can't complain...
