One of my son’s is really into racing games on his PC, so when we upgraded all the PC’s at the end of last year he chose to get a wheel and pedal set and a cheaper graphics card with his budget. After some research and also the fact we found a decent deal on Amazon Warehouse we picked up a Logitech G920 set for him. He is really enjoying using them, however, only being 11 his legs aren’t as strong as an adults, and these pedals have a “non-linear” feature for the brake pedal, which is basically a bit of rubber that has been added to the spring to try and simulate the feel of a real pedal.Read More

By documentating as many of the IT services pitcaple.it provides as possible into helpful tutorials and guides you can get stuck in and have a go if you feel the urge. These include self-hosting, email setup, anti-virus and malware removal.
What is the problem we are trying to solve I have a bunch of customisations that I make to various things when I am working in a Linux Environment, bash aliases, taskwarrior config etc. It would be nice to not have to remember what all these changes are each time I setup a new machine. So it would be nice to be able to pull down a copy of the configs I want and use them on a fresh machine to get up and running quickly.Read More
As well as being an IT Geek I am also a bit of a weather geek too. It started when we were living in the Caribbean and lived through a decade of Hurricane Seasons. I spent many, many hours of my life studying forecasts, models and predictions. When you have lived through packing up the entirety of the downstairs of your house and moving it upstairs in case you get flooded as a Hurricane is heading your way then you start to take very close attention to what is happening with the weather.Read More
The problem I made a booboo. I was trying to do the right thing, honest. I will put it down to a bit of rustiness of using Git. I was trying to scrub my personal data from a fork of a repo that I was working on and put an example config file in place of my actual one, but ended up committing the real one to GitHub instead. Luckily, without me even having to do anything I received two emails, one from MailGun (it was my SMTP password for an account I was using for emailing tasks):Read More
For my tasks and workflow I use Taskwarrior, which is a command line task manager. It is simple to learn the basics, but very powerful once you delve into what it can do. I am not going to go into all of that in this post though, maybe another time. Whilst it is great for when I am sitting at my computer working, I end up not using it for all my other tasks and chores I have to do, as there is no easy way to enter tasks on a mobile device, you also don’t get reminders of tasks either.Read More
