USB virus

It’s not an .exe infection but more like hardware on USB devices. How do i know if i have it, well it’s making mouse pointer sluggish and ports are warm or hot to the touch and sometimes Linux reports USB descriptor error. The main problem is that is spreading over USB ports no mater where you put, like TV, set-op boxes and so on. When you plug-in a new device to already infected system will not work at first, you need to re-plug, than it will work. To bypass the problem, you could use an PS/2 optical mouse, if your system has support for that or maybe a wireless but it’s still USB. Waiting for USB 4.0 is a solution, but who knows how long it will take to get devices on that standard and only on that standard. Where this comes from i don’t know, but it can only be fixed by changing all USB devices with that port to a new one and that’s not a cheap solution. Side effects are, mouse button my stop holding click, try doing circles with brush in any graphics app to see if there are any gaps.

20 years more of tech…

NFS stands for network file system, some day we will have this with zero fragmentation and IP file access system. The Web is faster with opening complex site than a large Word document from local storage. New OS will be unified something similar like gaming consoles use, you just log-in everything is provided for use. Not sure why would we need 128 core CPU and 1TB of RAM for home use but i guess servers already use that for the Web services and other more specialised use.

Time traveler from 2222


I am Blaze Pristy a time traveler from 2.2.2222 and i have arrived at 2:22 on 2.2.2020 in the afternoon. I came for a book about alchemy, how to make gold from liquid mercury by radiation. We have flying cars there and no airplanes. We eat soft pills that taste like real food by chewing them. Gold is used for high frequency portal making for time travelers. We don’t use computers any more, everything is interconnected by artificial intelligence projecting information and data in peoples mind by request on daily basis. We live in groups in small cities with very high skyscrapers, lifted of the ground by artificial gravity. Everything is provided, no more disease, we live about 120 years, than we recycle our bodies and mind by rebirth and start over. Protection from outside is done by space drones in orbit. More than half of the world population was gone by 22nd century by flood caused by poles shift and with mysterious disease from outside visitors from another planet. Bye!

Vivaldi browser

This browser has many options for your personal configuration as you like. Maybe you want visual speed dial for bookmarks like the old Opera had, well it’s not perfect but with soft abstract background it looks perfect, you can setup that in options. You can have your video-wall of bookmarks on widescreen, it can be done. I have retired Firefox browser and bookmarks bar, it’s almost half the speed of Chrome based browsers in Basemark Web 3.0, so it was time to switch to Vivaldi.

Limbo tech

Why a faster computer, is software any faster, well it’s not, just some output is. Still using 3 years old AMD Ryzen system with Ubuntu LTS and Windows 10. So what’s next, Android tablet is good at one thing and not bad at 10 things so that’s that. Games sells new hardware, but do we really need it, that’s the question?

PlayStation 4 gaming voyage

I’m not saying that some games can’t be finished but it’s hard to get honest review how hard is the game. After two years of playing on PS4 i must say that just two games stand out and that’s Detroit: Become Human and Horizon Zero Dawn, this two are the best, very good are also Uncharted 4, Tomb Raider trilogy and Gran Turismo Sport. Some play GTA and Call of Duty online but not me. Why not using PC, well it sucks and cost a lot. Used games for PS4 do cost some but not a lot, and the price start to drop after couple months after game is released. So who’s better PC or PS4, some say that PlayStation is 10 times slower, sure but it’s also 10 times better optimized. PlayStation it’s just for games and everything else is done by itself, you just use the controller and that’s about it, can’t get any easier than that. PlayStation games also have and use auto-target system, to play a bit easier than on PC and any LG TV is good enough for PlayStation.

How to replace Windows with Linux?

Long story short, for web browsing you can use your favorite browser, what ever it is. Well, that’s a start, for video playing is there VLC. Office support is done by LibreOffice, it makes M$ compatible documents. Graphics editor is there called Gimp and 3D modelling app Blender. Games, yes there are some, but better yet get a console like a PlayStation. Linux maybe starts slower but it’s faster ready, so that’s that.
