There is enough variety and choice to fill your computer monitor to keep you amuse when the Linux OS is on idle.

Installing LXLE Lightweight Linux
02-Nov-2022  

I am always on the lookout for lightweight Linux OS distro to install into my ye olde ancient computers. I’m not quite ready to dispose of these old PCs of mine and would like to see if I could squeeze out some useful life from them. My old Intel D915GEV with the stuck heatsink and CPU was a good candidate to try this LXLE Linux. According to their website, this distro has light resource usage,

Computer Heatsink stuck to CPU
02-Nov-2022  

While trying to fiddle with my old Intel D915GEV motherboard, I encountered a problem. It won’t boot! No boot up post screen. This PC is really old; I got it around 2005. With a Pentium 4 CPU, it is still an interesting piece of old hardware. However the CPU did run very hot. The fan & heatsink that came with it wasn’t really fitting, and I had changed it to a proper version. However the

How to Build A Strong Overall Champion in RAID Shadow Legends
25-Oct-2022  

I have been whacking RAID Shadow Legends for quite some time now and sort of have an understanding on how to build a strong champion. It feels great to be able to whack some bosses, get to an advanced faction wars stages and win some arena PVPs. Although my builds are not perfect, it did get me by. Building a good champion is not easy. The number one most needed resource are Silver coins! I

What To Do With Old Computers and Laptops
22-Sep-2022  

So you got your hands on some old computers and laptops. Depending how old it is, you could either consign it to the recyclers, especially if it is way too old, or try to revive it for some other purpose. Previously I usually got rid of them when I obtained a new PC. However these old computers and laptops could still run and they may yet be of good use. And that’s what I did. When my office

Which Rare Champions to keep in RAID Shadow Legends?
21-Sep-2022  

As the game progresses, you will start to amass quite a fair number of RAID Shadow Legends. Soon you will find yourself running out of slots to keep your champions. To free up the slots you will need to weed out which champions are worth keeping, and which to use as fodder to level up more useful champions. This question came to my mind and I am sure to many players as well. Judging from the

My RAID Shadow Legends Video Recap
14-Apr-2022  

It's been quite a long slog playing RAID Shadow Legends. With the anniversary, Plarium made a video recapping my ardous adventure playing their game. I was rather surprised that I am amongst the nearly at the 80% top players.The game is not easy, not easy at all. As a free-to-play player, I really had grind everyday to get coins to level up my champions. The most difficult aspect was to push the

RAID Shadow Legend Mastery: Warmaster vs Giant Slayer
20-Dec-2021  

I have been trying to figure out which RAID Shadow Legends final mastery was better, between the Warmaster vs Giant Slayer and to a lesser extent, Flawless Execution. Trying to get the best bang out of the damage inflicted against the opponent from this final mastery requires a bit of calculation. Most players and guides would go for Warmaster, though sometimes they would go for Giant Slayer as

RAID Shadow Legend, my resurgence gameplay
13-Dec-2021  

In my last blog way back in October 2020 when I bid adieu to RAID Shadow Legend, well, I made a comeback around September 2021 this year! With the Covid-19 pandemic still raging. I have some spare time while working from home. Apart from tinkering with reviving old PCs and Raspberry Pi, Arduino and learning Japanese with the Duolingo app, I decided to give this game another go. Wait, what? Yes

System Rescue ISO GRUB2 menuentry
09-Aug-2021  

And my final addition to the GRUB2 menuentry is the System Rescue CD ISO. Normally this is best installed in a USB stick or in a CD-ROM for use in an emergency. For the fun of it, I decided to try running a live version off from a PC. Digging around the forum sites, I managed to find a menuentry example. However it didn’t quite work out and it took me a while to sort out the entry. To get it

Tiny Core Plus Linux GRUB2 menuentry
09-Aug-2021  

For a super-duper lightweight Linux distro, I think this one takes the cake! Tiny Core Linux has 3 different cores to choose from: Core (16MB), Tiny Core (21MB), Core Plus (163MB). After testing them out, I decided to go for the 163MB installation image. Core and Tiny Core are too basic for my taste. With Core booting into command line mode, while Tiny Core didn’t have much stuff to play around

SLAX GRUB2 menuentry
09-Aug-2021  

SLAX is a super small lightweight Linux distro. It used to be based on Slackware, hence the name SLAX. However, nowadays, it is based on Debian. It has a very nice GUI and some basic software. Since it is based on Debian, you can easily install more software to make it useful. Well, that sounded nice, unfortunately, try as I might I couldn’t get persistence installation. Despite adding the “
