Resurrection

Its been a few months, where I've spent a majority of my time trying to figure out blogger and this blog. Suffice to say I've been unsuccessful as of yet, however I am going to try one last ditch effort. I'm going to completely delete this blog and start again absolutely fresh. So what will happen to all the great content I've accumulated over the years? Well I've already gone about moving every single Mass-IMO post over BL-EEN.com, another site I used to run, but no longer have time to maintain. I am planning to delete this blog in the coming months, and with luck, start 2017 off fresh with a somewhat new look and new content.
Let's hope this works and thanks for being patient.

Blogger Has Died

Dear friends, fans, and followers.

For the past few months my blog has been overrun with errors, making changes very difficult (if not impossible).
On numerous occasions I've attempted to reset my blogger template, install a new templates, and even restore from an older version but I'm still unable to add or remove specific content from my blogs template. The initial problematic area was the blog post section which refuses to accept any changes or alterations to the date, author, title or social media links. I have suffered through this problem, but as of late it appears that the layout is now no longer accepting changes, and when displayed is no longer centered.
If anyone has suggestions on how to fix these blogger issues, please email me.

As a result, I will no longer be updating, as its too difficult maintain this blog.

GeekBox, The OUYA Replacement

For the time being, the OUYA remains my primary set-top streaming device. While the firmware and Kodi upgrades, documented back in December 2015, have allowed this device to remain somewhat relevant. It's no longer being sold through its website, or on Amazon, or in retail Target stores, so getting your hands on one is becoming impossible. With the OUYA's decreasing life expectancy, and limited availability, it's time to find a replacement set-top streaming device.
After reading specifications from numerous devices, comments from forums, and documentation manuals I've come to the decision that the GeekBox, will be the replacement device I'll be using once the OUYA is no more.
Why did I go with the GeekBox?

It has a high performance Octo-Core CPU

The RK3368 is an Octa Core 64bit, ARM Cortex-A53 processor with PowerVR G6110 graphics chip, 28nm processing design, Support OPENGL ES 3.1. RK3368 with super video capabilities, 4K×2K, H.265 and HDMI 2.0@60Hz output support.

It's dual boot Android and Linux

Pre-installed Android & Ubuntu Dual OS, a hot key switches between Android & Ubuntu.(You can also install Android–based Light Biz OS)

It's compact and portable 

Light as feather, Geekbox is portable enough for you to jam in the pocket and carry on the go. Delicate as diamond, Geekbox is coated by a streamlined outline and exquisite angular shell and looks really cool.

It's Expandable 

You can connect GeekBox to the GeekBox Landingship via MXM3 interface to turn the former into a development board. And connect any compatible device to GeekBox MXM3 interface to turn the former into a smart one in the future. Such as a display(digital photo frames), router(upload and download files without internet), projector(smart projector), etc.

It comes with Kodi pre-installed


No need to fuse with finding and installing Kodi, as its already in there.

Price 

At the time of posting the price is $109.99 US, which is about the same price the OUYA was when it was introduced. Unfortunately the Canadian dollar isn't what it used to be so this will probably cost us Canadians somewhere in the $150 CDN range. Thats about $25 CDN more than the OUYA.
