I beat Rive, one of the Humble Monthly games. It was a pretty fun side scrolling bullet hell game. Only about four hours total to beat, but fun none the less. It had some tough moments, but was overall not too bad.
Now that I am home, and able to properly read the logs. I found the cause of the downtime, there appears to be a bug in the Twitch plugin I am using. I am going to disable it for now and see if the developer has a fix.
I still think we should blame it on @ShiftySatchmo being left in charge!!
I marathon’d through Yooka Laylee and beat the last boss.
If you like Banjo Kazooie or any of the old era platformers, this is a game for you. From the snarky comments, amazing puns, music, controls, level design, and puzzles; it is absolutely a spiritual successor to Banjo Kazooie.
My only “complaint” about the game is that you needed a pretty large amount of the pagies (the main collectible) to unlock the last boss. There are 145 in the game total (if my math is right) and you need to have 100 to unlock him.
I’ve never took the time to look into a Pi, though I do know they can do some amazing stuff.
What are the odds that you could set one up as a standalone VPN for say an android box? I’d be very interested in that, I’m not big on my Android box but I do like to watch the occasional USA based show before the episode hits the U.K.
I’d also imagine if you can do that, you’d also be able to do it for the PC so setting up a Pi to have Ad block and VPN. I know there are programs for this but as we all can imagine, I think having a standalone unit capable of doing this almost on a plug and play basis after initial setup would be a pretty sweet thing.
Next we just need to also program it to block out things from the internet we don’t want to see like Cash Me outside girl and the Kardashians!
Can you say CA CHING!?!?!
I actually started looking into making my own router so I can run cool things on it. Apparently VPNs are hard . If you want maximum speed, you need a pretty beefy CPU and probably actively cooled. Some of the newer Celerons can do ~200 Mbps on AES-128, which isn’t anything to sniff at.
I doubt a Pi could accomplish a fast VPN, but I bet it could do a VPN. To force your one Android box to talk over a VPN, you’d need to have the Pi setup as a proxy with the VPN client running on it. Then point the Android box to the Pi proxy.
