I just got back from a small few day vacation so much going on... And while on vacation I get the email notification I got in on one of the Road Tested I applied for.... Super stoked about it!
So going to have fun with that once it arrives on the 17th of May here.
I got a email yesterday as well from a cad/slicer cloud company that wants me to do a review on their product for youtube. Which is not a problem but doing it for free on a trial software license doesn't sound good in my book. I would need more then 30 days with any given software due to my time consumption in other projects.
What's anyone's thoughts of doing reviews for other companies that well basically get the review for free with no real compensation for you? unlike the road test where the product is basically yours to mess about with.
Would be interested in if people pursue these companies or if you would avoid them?
So after 7 years of video uploading and creating content I finally decided to go through all of them and start editing them all so they might get more traffic. I tell you its been the most boring longest part of it yet. Creating tags and editing descriptions is so not on my fun factor list.
I wont post my link here but I am slowly getting more and more proud of the channel I am even starting doing some interviews and podcast style stuff which is a ton of fun talking with other makers and creators.
Anyways back to editing just taking a coffee break and making sure I don't stop posting to my blog here.
Well got most of the shop done today still a lot to go hopefully I will have things setup by tomorrow night so I can start on some of my projects. But gotta say love the feel of a nice fresh shop coming together nicely.
With this Orange pi! so because I couldn't afford much at the time I ended up buying a orange pi pc and and a orange pi zero. So far not enjoying them at all compared to the raspberry pi.
Right now trying to put a bit of work into making my Mostly Printed CNC machine into a lower watt category then running my windows vista computer. So hopefully soon will get things going well on the Orange pi.
I have not given up but mark my words I will not be getting anymore for future projects.
Some people might enjoy them but I don't the first thing was power issues.
Also using it to figure out if I can't incorporate it into another project I have so far its been ok picking up the usb devices I want to run well minus one usb wifi that works in the pi I am sure if played with it would go but at this point ill just plug in something that works.
I might change my mind down the road on this but right now its been more work then I expected it to be.
