Stop Children From Fighting

It seemed like a “no brainer”. I’m so disappointed in YouTube for even having this video on their website.  This is as much an exploitation of children as any other and youtube should not have it on their.  Like most people, I have better things to do than run around being the SJW.  I post this here and I hope the right SJW picks it up and runs with.  I made a comment and moved on with my life.  posted on youtube under the video.  I hope it gains traction.  I said:  “Is this really the UFC. I will not endorse children fight… EVER!. WTF is wrong with you people. This should be illegal. I clicked this link and paused it just to make this comment. Never let this show up in my feed again… Deplorable. ”

 

Oculus Quest 2 Disappointment

I’ve had the Oculus now for a month and it’s terrible for the very basic thing I needed to do. vSpatial is garbage and so is immerse. I just need it to be my 360 degree monitor. All I need it to do is emulate desktops and they can’t even do that. I’ve reached out to Oculus’ tech support and the respond like monkeys and bots. They recommend you go to social media for help. You cannot find any instructions online on how to actually use the product. Just fan boys telling you how good it is. The application is mainly aimed at trying to sell you virtual reality content. I rarely play games on my computer or devices.

Every time I pick up the Oculus Quest 2 to use it, instead of getting anything done. I actually just wind up troubleshooting it. I turn it on and the Bluetooth connection isn’t working. A plain Bluetooth keyboard does work but, I have to reconnect it every time I turn the device on. The K830 desktop keyboard that is suppose to work with it simple does not. Once again… I reached out to tech support which is just ridiculous. I’ve never liked Logitech products, Facebooks Oculus made me go out and get an Logitech K830 keyboard that just never worked.

I turned on the Oculus today and realized somehow passthrough mode is gone. I can’t imagine why you would remove passthrough mode. I can’t image any of the other professional applications actually work but I will figure out over time. I’ve noticed that in the oculus subreddit all the do is advertised. Same thing in the Oculus Quest 2 subreddit, just more fan boys and adds. The Oculus is not for serious people.

I offer my experience as accurately as possible. I always encourage anyone to contact me and or to prove me wrong. I treat being wrong as an opportunity to learn. I love to hear your experience.

On My Oculus Quest 2

So I decided to buy an Oculus the other day. More for virtual office and vSpatial than anything else. I got the K830 keyboard a week later and have been trying to configure it since.  I tried to find some online help and right away I noticed how little information there was on anyone actually configuring it.  Cas and Chary VR are more requirement at no point does she demonstrate or walk you through how she actually set it up.   This guy point’s out some but not all the issues.  You see, I’m curious to see someone take it out of a box and actually configure it.  He didn’t actually show you everything either.  

I contact Oculus support and they also fell way short of my expectations.  The basicially told me turn it of and turn it back on again worse through an email :-\.  My specific point to him was “The K830 keyboard that I order from logitech comes with a separte Bluetooth device intended to go into a computer. How was that ever suppose to work with the Oculus Quest 2.”  One reddit channel is now saying that there are two different K830. I’m not even sure how accurate that is.

But how could I have chose the wrong thing when the I followed the link from the official Oculus website to the Logitech’s website to purchase the product? When it came with Logitech’s proprietary bluetooth USB device I was worried right away if/how it would work.

It’s really bad that they encourage you to use social media before giving any help in this way.  They should be tracking these problems better not social media.

Sometimes the Internet can be the place where idiots gather to agree. Even if you feel like I’m one of those idiots please help.

So, Weed is Legal?

I’m trying to figure out where we are with the U.S. Marijuana Laws. I know there has been a bunch of decriminalization efforts going on with it. But what are the actual laws. Here is a bill in congress basically decriminalization it, I think. I little research over to mpp.org informs me that there is a MORE Act but offers very little information not even a date to the article. I think marijuana is decriminalized in the us now. Here Marijuana Moment post says that the debate is over and the votes are in. is the whole session in congress that basically says so. this MSLawgroup link is is just not accurate. It’s not in the benefit of lawyers for Marijuana to be legal they make a lot of money off of those frivolous cases. So should I investing in Marihuana stocks now.

Teracube 2w

My Teracube 2e have arrived and I’m very please.  It’s got everything I’ve always wanted in a phone. It’s the ultimate utility cellphone.  My goal for my cellphone is my mobile computer away from my computer.    I don’t play games on my cellphone.  I have many other devices  for that and if  I ever wanted to play games on it I’m pretty sure it would be good at it too.  When I saw this add campaign on kickstarter by teracube I had to jump on it.   

  • The specs are awesome, Just go look at them here.
  • It has dual sim cards.
  • headphone jack.  It doesn’t force me to have to connect some wireless headset.
  • You can change the battery.  The stupid practice of not making the batteries changeable and trying to sell cell phone charges is one of the dumbest things consumer seem to fall for. 
  • Of-course there is a micro-SD slot
  • The camera is pretty good.
  • It snappy and fast. 
  • The developer look like they are going to keep up with the development of the android system.
  • It comes with Google Apps (GApps) but there is a way to put a ROM on it that has no GApps.  I personally don’t have a problem with GApps.  But it is a minimalist phone.  I love the fact that the stock OS with the GApps on it made it a point to keep androids stock contact app.  Look around on your phone if your contacts android app forces you to upload you contacts to some other database your phone and your manufacturer took advantage you.  Google Contacts count as another database, don’t fool yourself 😉
  • There is a great developer community.

I’m sure as I go through I will find much more things that I like and I’ll share.  

OVH, Who Are They?

It’s interesting to come across an article like this when you are just searching reddit for information about “OVH Server”.

I got really crappy customer service from them so I decided to dig deeper.   There is no phone support in the us. 

Grasshopper Virtual Phone System

I find grasshopper to be responsive and have an overall educated customer service department.  Having a customer service department that is educated about the product is very important to having a productive phone call. 

The product does have a limitation and creates a dilemma for itself.   The voice in the dial-by-name directory can’t be changed so why would anyone purchase any of the voice over studios.  This  seems  like a huge oversight to me.   

Exodus Disappoints

Exodus has disappointed me again.  They never seem to have the currency you want to trade to available.  It seems they want to keep you locked in to a currency, no doubt at their convenience.  I will have to play with more wallets.

At this point the app doesn’t allow you to trade to any stablecoins. 

Departments on the Telephone

How and when did we get use to the idea of departments and waiting in line for different departments on the telephone?  When you called a company a bank for example isn’t it the worst thing when the transfer you to a different department?  When this happens to you at first it is astonishing because you thought you called one company, the next thing you know you realized you are being transferred around to different people in the same company.  

Quad Copters & Drones

Quad Copters and Drones have come such a long since I looked at them.  It’s easily been 6 years since I was interested in quad copters.   Based on all the advances I can’t even call them that anymore.  They really are drones.  Actually, UAV (unmanned aerial vehicles) are what I’m talking about and I’m buying some to find out their capabilities.  I think I’m going to get certified.    

DJI has some really awesome drones.  They are a good idea of cutting technology on a piece of hardware.  They are a bit expensive but they look like they are worth it.  

Beagle Drones seem descent but more research is required,

I like what onpoynt is doing, offering the drone creating (3D printing) & training.  They have much going.
