Pi-Hole download

Pi-Hole converts a device on your network into a domain name service provider with a built-in blocklist. What this means is that once installed your entire network is filtered to remove trackers and ad's, which not only blocks advertisements but improves your internet speed, and reduces total network traffic (since the ads are no longer downloaded).

I installed Pi-Hole onto a 10 year old laptop i had lying around and followed the steps provided on their website. Total installation took around 20 minutes. Pi-Hole also has a comprehensive admin page to monitor your network (on my network pi-hole blocks around 20% of all queries on average). I highly recommend this software to anyone concerned about the amount of tracking and advertisements being sent over your home network.

ImDisk RAM Disk download

There are plenty of high speed disk options available for PC's these days: SSDs, NVmE, PCI, etc. But for those users that have plenty of RAM, turning that RAM into a super-fast disk drive is an attractive FREE option. There are limitations to these drives; you cant use them as boot drives and you must have extra RAM available. When searching for a fast transcoder drive for my PLEX server, I looked at various RAM disk creation software and found Imdisk to be the best option.

ImDisk has no space limitation (you are limited by the amount of physicial RAM) and even has a dynamic allocation option. It was straight-forward and quick to set up a 16 GB RAM disk, assign it a drive letter and it was instantly recognized by Windows. If you have some RAM to spare and are in need of a fast drive, this is your solution. And check out these speeds (measured with Crystal Disk Mark)! RAM Disk read/write speed

Soundcloud download mp3

Soundcloud is a (somewhat) popular music streaming website and a great way for local artists to get exposure.

I always recomend buying music direct from artists but sometimes certain songs are locked behind music stores that don't offer the option to download an mp3 file *Apple, *cough *cough.

Check out this convenient online downloader that enables you to download that sweet remix.

28th Mar, 2018 Image Upscaling

We've all seen the CSI episodes where the suspect is conveniently spotted by repeatedly zooming in on security footage that magically becomes crisp after someone yells "ENHANCE!". In the real world this isn't the case, zooming in will create a blurry pixelated image that cannot contain more information than the original image.

The team at have created a unique approach and solution: they upscale the photo and then use algorthms from deep convolutional neural networks to fill in missing details based on the content of the image.

And it's free! Check it out!
