GAMDIAS sent me the GKC1001 Mechanical Gaming Combo to check out… and let me tell you, I’m really shocked how much I like it, especially at the price point of $70 USD.
The GK1001 combo includes the Hermes Lite Mechanical Keyboard and the Erebos Lite Optical Mouse.
Hermes (/ˈhɜːrmiːz/; Greek: Ἑρμῆς) is an Olympian god in Greek religion and mythology, the son of Zeus and the Pleiad Maia, and the second youngest of the Olympian gods. – wikipedia.org
/ˈɛrəbəs/, also Erebos
(Greek: Ἔρεβος, “deep darkness, shadow”), was often conceived as a primordial deity, representing the personification of darkness; for instance, Hesiod’s Theogony identifies him as one of the first five beings in existence, born of Chaos. – wikipedia.org
I’ve been checking out the Vortex Viper 12×50 binoculars for a few months now, using them from everything from checking out the random animals in the neighborhood, to spotting shot placement at the range.
Recently I noticed that my system had a USB hub that was reporting an error (Code 43). There were a couple USB ports on the back of my system that were not working and that was about it… Nothing else was really “wrong” with the system. So I contacted ASUS support…
I recently needed to make some updates to this blog to fix some issues, update a few items and “get with the times” on a couple things… One of the things I wanted to make “fit” into the site a little better, or what I feel is a little better, is some more themed social icons.
Here’s what I did for these buttons.
GAMDIAS recently sent me out one of their Hephaestus gaming headsets. This is one of their top of the line headsets, that is rocking a very affordable price tag.
Hephaestus (/hɪˈfiːstəs/, /həˈfɛstəs/ or /hᵻˈfɛstəs/; eight spellings; Ancient Greek: Ἥφαιστος Hēphaistos) is the Greek god of blacksmiths, craftsmen, artisans, sculptors, metals, metallurgy, fire and volcanoes. – wikipedia.org
The Hephaestus is sporting 7.2 channel audio (there is a “woofer” in each ear) with a reported frequency response range of 20 Hz to 20 kHz, though, my ears could only pick up 20 Hz to 19 kHz test tones. The Hephaestus also provides quite good audio separation between all of the various channels in a 7-speaker surround sound setup.
This story begins with a cell phone service change for someone close to me that lead to a lot of headache, heartache and just overall a bad experience as a customer.
What happened, well, after numerous not so great experiences with Verizon (retail store personnel, phone support, warranties, and the list goes on), a change of carrier was in the works… When a new carrier was decided on, the switch was made. Everything was great, until… “Wait, where are all of my really old pictures?”
If you are used to using older versions of DSM on your Synology NAS hardware, and use the SSH functionality, you may know that to get “admin” access you needed to login as “root”.
To do this at the SSH login, you would simply use the user name “root” instead of admin, or another user. Now, in DSM 6.0, you do not use “root” you simply need to login as a user that has admin access. Then you can use sudo like standard Linux. You do need to make sure that your user account is an admin account…
I recently got my hands on a GAMDIAS Ourea optical mouse as part of a promo package. This is a low cost, entry level gaming mouse that offers a good amount of features, specially for the price point.
In Greek mythology, the ourea
(Ancient Greek: Oὔρεα “mountains,” plural of Oὖρος) were progeny of Gaia, members of the Greek primordial deities, who were the first-born elemental gods and goddesses, children of Gaia – wikipedia
