Raspberry pi pico

We already made posts about raspberry pi products most of GPIO pins but you can’t use them on your pc but now with the 5$ raspberry pi pico you can. The raspberry pi pico isn’t a computer it’s a microcontroller, a microcontroller is NOT a computer it’s used to make LEDs light, severo motors move, and a LCD display. Thank you for reading this post on eddy4ai.com, Edward

Pi hole

So after the Minecraft server project with balena cloud 1 of things I tried I deployed the Minecraft server with balena hub 1 of the things I saw was pi hole. I looked in pi hole to pi hole with the pi hole website pi-hole.net, pi hole is software that you can install on your raspberry pi to turn it to a DNS as blocking device unlike other software when your device ask for a blacklisted domain it just won’t ask the router and I know this works because I tested out with speedtest.net and huaren.us. After running the command for the pi hole installation you will need to set some settings it will ask you if you want to use a eth0 (Ethernet) or wlan0 (wifi) choose for the next questions I just pressed ok for all of them but you can do it definitely, once it’s done to set it up on a iPad just go into settings right next to your wifi SSID press the I button then press DNS, Manual and enter your raspberry pi’s hostname.

Minecraft server part 3

So recap: 1 day I wanted to make a Minecraft server with a raspberry pi so I tried to install it with balena cloud but that failed, so I went on the Minecraft website and wanted to install a Java server it doesn’t work with bedrock (pocket) edition. Soon after that I searched Minecraft server on google and 1 of the links were a beta of a bedrock server so I downloaded and unzipped it and ran the bedrock server on deepin drive. Now I have a Minecraft server not on a raspberry pi so I failed and didn’t fail. So that’s the end of The Minecraft server project, please come back to eddy4ai.com for more, Thanks, Edward.

Minecraft server part 2

So here’s a recap 1 day I wanted to make a Minecraft server, I tried to make it with raspberrypiOS but even when installing it but it didn’t work, then I used balenaOS with balena cloud but it just didn’t work. So after Tony read the balena docs we realized that we need to deploy it with balena cloud so after that it said that it was 100 ticks behind so after reinstall it 5 times it said the server properties file was empty remember that file. Also at this time I was browsing the Minecraft website and was going to download the Java Minecraft server but it said it said the Minecraft Java server doesn’t work on bedrock so I couldn’t do that. Please come back to eddy4ai.com, thank, Edward.

The raspberry pi 4

In the Minecraft server post part 1 I said “ The raspberry pi has many possibilities” but I never told you what the raspberry was. The raspberry is a 35$ desktop desktop computer with no Monitor, it doesn’t have a Intel or AMD CPU it has a arm CPU so it can’t run a 32 or 64 bit OS so you have to install Arm64 Linux distributions like Ubuntu server or now desktop, CentOS, RaspberrypiOS, and balenaOS for IOT but you can’t install windows on it. The raspberry pi is great for a IOT DIY project, a DIY server, and a budget desktop computer. The last thing you should know about the raspberry pi 4 is that it doesn’t have a hard drive or a SSD so it uses a microSD card so you can install a lot Operating systems. Soon I might a post about all the raspberry pi computer. Please come back to the eddy4ai.com, thanks, Edward.

Minecraft Server Part 1

The raspberry pi has many possibilities but there’s one I can’t unlock, making a Minecraft server with it. First, I tried keeping the raspberrypiOS by using the terminal but no it didn’t work, then I went all over then internet one popular way was using balena cloud. Go to balena.io use balena cloud, download balenaOS and install it on your raspberry pi. That’s all for part 1 come back every week to eddy4ai.com to see a new part and more. Thank’s, Edward.

The iMac

About now the iMacs you see have the same shape even for the new M1 cpu the iMac didn’t get an update but there was a time when the iMac design would change for every new major update. Remember when macs had power pc cpus starting with the iMac G3 had a clear egg design but when the iMac G4 was released it had a LCD screen so it got a lamp design, personality it my favorite it may have inspired by a concept from the TAM learn more in the TAM post at https://www.eddy4ai.com/index.php/2021/01/30/the-apple-tam/. The iMac G4 has G4 cpu, it was released on January 7 2002 with macOS 9 and X but then on 2003 only macOS X and the final one had USB 2.0. Eventually it was disconnected and the new iMac G5 was released with the almost same design as the the iMac 2020 more plastic and white. The iMac G5 was the last power pc iMac because in 2006 we got the almost same computer but with an Intel cpu and a camera and called the Polycarbonate iMac, on 2007 the new iMac was aluminum so it was the aluminum iMac 2008, the design that we have today is from the Unibody iMac from 2009, these macs are pretty cool, Edward.
