New project on the Horizon

Sunday, November 1st, 2020

So I am starting a new project. I have decided to start a YouTube channel. My primary focus is going to be on system administration ‘tips and tricks’ and some IT training videos. I will also be doing technology review, how-to videos as well as start doing travel vlogs.

Those of you that know about my previous travel blogs: https://www.yourservice.com/steve/vacations, it will be a lot like that only video. I have watched hundreds of travel vlogs over the last 3 months and they are all missing things I feel I can bring to the table.

My new website for the channel will be at: https://www.syncsyncreboot.com/ and my YouTube channel will be at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVvA_gMySsBL5-dk_lrKMJA

Currently, there is no content. I am in the process of getting my office cleaned up and ready, so I can start recording. I am also testing out a lot of recording equipment and editing software.

If there are subjects or topics you are interested in seeing, please leave me a comment here or on the channel, or send me email.

WordPress App Failure

Saturday, September 19th, 2020

So I attempted to want to like this app for the Mac, but it last some simple functionality that I use:

  • Adding embedded links causes the app to freeze
  • Categories just don’t show up at all
  • 50% of the times the <save draft> link doesn’t appear.

I will go back to using Safari for now.

So it looks like the Apple watch has a new hand washing feature. Has anyone tried it out yet? Let me know what you think.

New Gimbal

Wednesday, September 16th, 2020

I am starting to look at equipment for video recording, both stationary and for travel and I was turned on to the following product. It’s a Gimbal for my phone. I took it on a test walk the other night and for the most part it worked really well. I was watching the playback and it was still a little bit bouncy. I need to learn more about my phone’s video to see if it has image stabilization. I will post some videos once I get the hang of it and have something to show.
