  • Razer Anzu: Gaming Glasses? Yeah, it’s a Thing

    On Cyber Monday, I decided to take a trip to my local Best Buy. I don’t often visit brick and mortar stores anymore, but I thought I’d treat myself for one day. There’s nothing like being able to see the electronics in person — you can’t test headphones or game controllers online. You can’t have face-to-face conversations with fellow gamers around you and talk about what’s the best keyboard and mouse to use. And you just stare in amazement for what the store has for inventory. Primarily I wanted to get a larger monitor over the one that I’ve had for several years. After spending what was probably an hour-and-a-half to two hours in the store (it’s a big store and like any other nerd, I wanted to check out everything), I did get the monitor — a 32″, 1440p, 165 Hz monitor from LG. I might have a review on it later; I’m just pissed that I paid more at Best Buy when I could’ve got the same thing from Amazon for $100 cheaper. (And I forgot at the time that Best Buy does price match…sigh.)

    Anyway, what caught my eye as I was doing my shopping was “smart” glasses. Bose had a couple. Glasses that literally have a built-in Bluetooth speaker and microphone, in addition to providing protection from sunlight. $200. Eh, sounds interesting, but I ain’t payin’ no $200 for those.

  • Chrome OS 98 may offer a glimpse at Steam gaming on Chromebooks

    The old “Chromebooks are just a browser” myth continues to die a slow death. After adding Android and Linux app support, the next big advancement for Google’s modern desktop platform is PC gaming. And I don’t mean PC game streaming, although that’s already available via Stadia and Nvidia’s GeForce Now. I mean a dedicated Linux container that locally adds Steam gaming on Chromebooks.

    Google has been working on this project, known as Borealis, for at least a year at this point. And a new Chromium code commit found by Android Police suggests that Chrome OS 98 will show off the first glimpse of Steam gaming on Chromebooks through some experimental flags.

  • This Raspberry Pi Atari-Themed Walnut Arcade is Made For Two | Tom's Hardware

    We’ve seen Raspberry Pi arcade cabinets before, even ones made of wood, but this is the first Atari-themed arcade we’ve come across. It’s made primarily of walnut and runs RetroPie with enough buttons and joysticks carefully seated into the wood for two players.

    Some of the best Raspberry Pi projects come out of the need for a one-of-a-kind gift. Such is the case today, as this beautiful walnut arcade was created as a gift for Mw33212’s brother-in-law.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
