So i’ve been without a mac for around 2 years now. I’ve still got my Mac Mini from 2009. But with age becauses slowness. I did have a SSD in there and it was working. But had to take the SSD out to use on a computer repair job. I’ve finally got another Mac Mini from Late 2012.
THere are the specs above if you would like to know. My aim for this machine is to use it as a production machine. From blog posts to software/game creation and all matter of other things. I’m no doubt going to be using my Windows machine more as a gaming machine now and my mac a prodticity machine. And no doubt just jump between the two. The currrent set up is my 3 monitors are still on my windows machine and then my mac mini is on my right screen. Just changed the input on the right monitor and bam back at using the 3 screen for my windows PC.
So as some of you may know. I’ve run my websites from my Mac Mini from home for I’d say for the last 6+ months. I’ve decided to retire it and move back to using name.com for hosting my websites. Due to the safety net that it provides. Less chance of data loss. I’ve learned a lot doing it. Like security and the general means that comes with hosting websites on your own. I’ve been using MAMP Pro so I’ve not learned about apache host files etc. But know doubt I will be as soon I’m going to be getting my old data centre server that I have up and running and use it as a play around server and buy a domain for that server and use it for that.
The NAS that I have too is going to be retired too. I’m moving away from PLEX and just going to use Amazon Prime video and Netflix since I’ve got them anyways. I might as well just use them.
If you have any suggests or recommendations on what i should use on my main server please comment below.
I must say what a year 2016 has been for me. I’ve gone from having nothing to having it all to then losing it. To only just getting over it all and picking myself back up. So much has happened to me it’s unreal. Not going to lie it’s not been my best year by far. But I’m for sure it can only get better from here.
The lessons I’ve learned have been big lessons. From starting my own business to losing it all and having to start from scratch once again. But that’s part and parcel of being an entrepreneur. I’m sure I’ll no doubt fail more times from now. But it only takes that one to make it to success. I just hope I can keep my attitude the way it seems to be lately. Positive.
I’ve been reading through my Facebook Memories of this time last year (When I had the shop) and honestly I do miss it. But failure isn’t going to stop me climbing back up and reaching out for it again.
From what I’ve learned there is such a thing as moving too fast in the business world and that’s what I did and it well bit me in the arse and boy have I learned from it. Climbing the ladder too fast can mean you get there faster but you will no doubt slip up more often than taking your time. That’s what I’ve found. I’ve learned when to give it your all and when to just take your time.
I might never be rich. But i know i won’t quit/give up or stop till I’m successful in my own right.
What is OBINX?
Obinx allows you to stream to Twitch via our server using OBS. Rather than having to use OBS to Twitch. This enables you to use your present laptop/desktop computer rather than having to upgrade thus saving you lots of time and money. The team at Obinx consists of gamers who love to stream. We are dedicated to making streaming easier and more enjoyable.
Right, you may not have heard of Obinx. What Obinx is as it is explained above is a way of being able to stream to twitch (soon YouTube as well) with your current hardware. I’ve done some tests with it and I must say it’s amazing and actually does what it says on the tin. I wasn’t able to stream Battlefield 1 using OBS at all but since using Obinx I’m able to do so without any system upgrades needed at all. I’ll post a video here so you can see Obinx in action.
When I was streaming I didn’t notice any problems with the stream at all. I’m just so happy I’m able to stream now where as before I couldn’t. If you want to read more about Obinx visit there website over at Obinx.com. If you have any questions or want to know more they have a support website/forum over at Obinx.com/Support.
Right that’s me out for this blog post. Hope to see you in the next one.
So i was watching this video on facebook and well i ended up doing a facebook post and i had a bit of a rant. Here is the video and my rant below it
Don’t get my wrong what the man says is right. He is right in the school system. But what good do you get teaching everyone different and trying to change the way it’s changed when all you need todo is teach people self respect and confidence. The fact that people think they are stupid is because their belief system is set that way. How do you expect people to be prepared when people arnt even prepared for them self. Why should a person stand when it’s easyier to sit down even when standing up will result in better results. It’s because of self belief and respect. and attitude towards what they are doing. It’s not the system thats broke is the human system that is broken. How do you expect something that is man made to change when change won’t be allowed todo it its self. Self belief is what makes change. The damn ones who are crazy enough to change the world are the ones who do. Not a school system or how we are. Changing the way people see them selfs is the main root of all problems. You can get a person todo somthing they hate for 9-18 hours a day because of a thing called money. How do you expect to get somewhere when every day it’s taken away from you. The school system will never change it will stay as it is. The ones who excell at education are the lawers, doctors and so on. The ones who don’t are the ones who change this f**k hole we call the system. The ones who don’t fit in are the ones who find the ways to make a change. They don’t fit in for a reason. They are made to be diffrent for a reason. Some people are able to handle that so much better than others. We woudn’t have half of the companys we have now if the school system bended to there needs. Steve Jobs look at him. Walt Disney and so on. The ones who don’t fit in to the nor and the ones who are here to push the system forward. Why would you want everyone to fit in. How are you meant to find the special ones there. How do you see the new system setters the ones who make a stand and do what right for the system and piush it and everything around us is man made. So that means it can be changed but how can it be changed if know one knows how to because now one is pushed out of a system. retalition is somtimes the best way to get inivation. If you don’t belive in your self then you will never get anywhere.
So i’m wanting to get back into writing blog posts. I’m wanting to move over to the stock market all the way to whatYouTube videos i’m watching. Currently while writing this i’m listening/watching Neebs Gaming’s latest Ark video. (Watch Here). Kepping my company while writing this blog post. So apart from Neebs Gaming i’ve found a YouTube of the name JPModified he makes video of clients custom computer builds he does. They are good insperation and i’d love to be able todo things very simulaor to what he does. One day hopefully.
On the stop market side i’m using a demo Plus 500 account and watch Bloomberg Live as my source of stock news. I’m wanting to one day eventually invest real money into the stock market but for now i’m not fully confident so i’m using a demo account. You get £20,000 as a starter to invest in who ever you want. I’m gained thousands but i’ve lost way more. The way i look at it i’m loosing fake money and not my real money. Make the mistakes now. I’m going to be doing blog posts on what i’m investing in and i will be posting my failours. I’ve been using the demo account for around 6 months on and off at the moment so still new to all this. So will just have to see how it goes.
I’m also going to be posting posts about technology like i used to and might even start getting back into the YouTube video making like i used to. Will have to see how it goes with all that.
Thats all for this video. So until then next time!
