On this website, you will find a multitude of guides generated through personal experience and providing end-user support. The aim of this website is to provide simple step-by-step guides so the less tech-savvy of us can fix common issues and perform self-diagnosis. This website updated regularly.  Feel free to contact us if you require help finding a guide or would like one created.

Within, you will also find guides for various Raspberry Pi projects, Retro-gaming, emulation, network security, and multimedia software. For example, with minimum expense, you could be blocking advertising on all your household devices which could increase speed by roughly 30%!

Raspberry Pi
raspberry The Raspberry Pi is a low cost, credit-card sized computer that plugs into a computer monitor or TV, and uses a standard keyboard and mouse. It is a capable little device that enables people of all ages to explore computing, and to learn how to program in languages like Scratch and Python. It’s capable of doing everything you’d expect a desktop computer to do, from browsing the internet and playing high-definition video, to making spreadsheets, word-processing, and playing games.

Emulation, Gaming, Streaming, and other guides

It's no secret, I love retro gaming, listening to music, and watching films!  There are lots of platforms and devices you can use and even more ways of getting your entertainment fix.  However getting the smoothest experience, best sound and video quality, and making everything organized is a difficult task.

As you can probably tell from this website, the Raspberry Pi is my first choice when it comes to an all-on-one entertainment solution.  However there are occasions where the computing power of a PC is required.  This is especially the case when trying to emulate newer consoles or playing video in audio perfect surround sound.

During my journey to achieve the best solution I have had to overcome many obstacles.  This section is dedicated to providing you information about available options and how to tackle obstacles you may encounter.
