Pepsi Portable 6-Can Mini Fridge – MIS133PEP Blue Video Transcript

00:06
as – wrong cone a day a niqab very
00:11
common for video party boy I make all
00:14
kinds of videos well I try to leave it
00:17
to my niche which is computer but I get
00:21
fucking sick and tired of making videos
00:23
helping people because oh I just get I
00:26
get harassed and you know anyways
00:30
so I’m having a bit of problem here
00:32
let’s see the stream yes dropping frames
00:36
so let’s see hopefully that won’t be too
00:40
much of a problem
00:42
alright I think I’ll be alright so on
00:44
screen I now make videos about I don’t
00:48
I’m not a consumer you know and a lot of
00:51
times I buy used items the reason why I
00:53
bought this and I don’t drink soda pop
00:55
so right out of the gate so I’m gonna
00:57
offend somebody I’m mostly a roughly
01:00
would begin and soda pop is absolute
01:03
garbage and I don’t ever drink soda pop
01:05
I fucking hate Pepsi coca-cola that’s
01:09
all garbage that’s all trash the reason
01:11
why I’m making this video is because I
01:13
am staying in a hotel right now and they
01:18
this hotel they don’t have any rooms
01:21
with refrigerators it’s a long story I
01:23
was staying on another hotel for three
01:24
months and that oh that’s right it was
01:27
Motel 6 in studio 6 and then there was
01:30
really quickly there was a police
01:34
standoff with I think a former person
01:37
that stayed at that hotel and they were
01:41
on the same floor I was they were
01:42
running back and forth they took out the
01:45
fire extinguisher and then the police
01:47
showed up and then they were literally
01:49
pointing guns at this person and then
01:51
the the individual I think he was on
01:53
probation and I think he had warrants I
01:56
don’t know
01:56
then I I I’m just telling what I heard
01:58
from the police as they were bull
02:00
horning I’m not making this shit up then
02:02
he got on the roof and I hurt him and I
02:05
was like I didn’t know if this guy was
02:07
gonna start attacking people so that’s
02:09
why I got out of motel 6 to do 6 but
02:12
their guard
02:13
the management there were horrible to
02:16
begin with I was on my way out anyways
02:17
anyways so that room had our
02:21
refrigerator not all hotels have
02:24
refrigerators a lot of them do and
02:27
refrigerators can be very large you know
02:29
I had an old one but the thermostat
02:32
broke on it and it was old and and I
02:34
didn’t even know you would have to swap
02:37
out the thermostat and I’d have taken
02:39
apart and without the thermostat
02:42
functioning correctly it froze
02:44
everything and so I went to I saw I went
02:50
online and I think my audio is okay but
02:54
I don’t know man this fucking is that
02:59
it’s all right holy shit is that okay it
03:04
is in the red zone way too much it’s way
03:07
too much let me turn this down
03:09
let me turn down the gain is that what
03:11
it is okay it’s just the gain yeah I
03:13
think I need to get a new XLR microphone
03:16
cable cuz this one I noticed in my last
03:19
livestream it cut out it cut out quite a
03:22
bit like it sounded horrible as star
03:25
level alright so no and I didn’t want to
03:31
buy one at Walmart I I don’t I try not
03:34
to buy things from Walmart but we run
03:36
located at there’s not a whole lot of
03:37
stores look you know it’s not like you
03:40
know and then Craigslist you know yeah
03:43
I’m the type that would buy a used
03:44
refrigerator from quicklist but the 1.6
03:47
1.7 cubic refrigerators even at Walmart
03:51
they’re like this fucking big they’re
03:54
nice you know it’s got a separate
03:56
freezer section and cooling section but
03:58
they’re fucking hey even the new ones
04:00
are heavy I lifted it and I was like it
04:04
was just as heavy as that old one that I
04:06
had that was probably twenty years old
04:08
although it was in really nice condition
04:09
I found it yeah I’m like that I found it
04:11
I was kicked out of my last office by a
04:15
bunch of Christians they lied to me and
04:17
then they told all of us believe they
04:20
lied to all of us they had a sign a
04:22
renewal lease for a year and then they
04:24
chained
04:25
mine and then they took told us to you
04:27
know leave they gave us three months
04:28
notice those damn Christians all right
04:31
and that I found that refrigerator out
04:37
in the park by the trash bin one time
04:41
and I was like well it wasn’t good
04:45
condition well the thermostat broke
04:48
anyway so but I got rid of that one
04:50
because I didn’t want to bring with me I
04:51
finally got rid of it and I just I don’t
04:54
want to have to carry a big fucking
04:57
heavy motherfucker every you know so I
05:01
found this online and then when I went
05:04
to Walmart now they do have other sizes
05:06
they have another one that can fit six
05:08
so I don’t drink soda pop but this one
05:11
can fit up to six cans of soda I don’t
05:14
fucking drink Pepsi this is not a Pepsi
05:17
advertisement I can’t stand Pepsi if I
05:21
drink that crap I would drink Coke but
05:22
coke is the newer coke is garbage
05:25
tasting compared to the coke in the 80s
05:27
anyways anyways but I don’t ever drink
05:30
soda never I’m a mostly real rough food
05:34
vegan I prefer raw fruits and vegetables
05:37
get my energy I don’t need to drink I
05:39
don’t need stimulants they had they
05:43
didn’t they only had this one this was
05:44
the last one left this was 29.99 do I
05:49
have my receipt still yeah maybe I’ll
05:54
say that for last over time alright
05:56
anyways let’s move along is this the
05:58
receipt for yeah right here mini mini
06:05
fridge 29 oils $29 plus tax
06:09
but I bought a mouse I’m gonna make a
06:11
video yeah I I just now I just if I buy
06:15
something new which is not that often
06:16
I’d make a video why not I can try to
06:18
get my money back or why wouldn’t you
06:22
$29 even and then but I bought a mouse
06:25
that I’m gonna I’m gonna make a video
06:27
about a NN mouse that I bought and then
06:29
I’m gonna make another video about
06:30
another a brand called black something
06:35
black whatever a mouse that was a
06:37
shit that I bought at Walmart and I
06:40
dropped it once and the motherfucker
06:42
broke so I bought this on end mouse to
06:45
replace it all right
06:47
no I don’t know what the tax would be
06:49
because yeah the total tax was two
06:52
dollars and 98 cents it was $29 the
06:55
other item was 888 so that’s about what
06:58
75% I would say the tax is somewhere 250
07:02
whatever tax all right so it came it
07:05
came with a cord it comes with a
07:08
two-prong cord now this is a six pat six
07:13
mini it’s a Pepsi my I can’t believe I’m
07:19
fucking even saying the word Pepsi
07:21
because I despise capitalism and I don’t
07:24
drink soda
07:25
almost never there’s no reason for me to
07:27
drink it because I consume fruits and
07:29
vegetables that’s where I get my glucose
07:31
my natural glucose that’s where I get my
07:33
energy to make these videos I don’t I
07:34
don’t need stimulants yeah they’re but
07:36
they’re not even good for you
07:39
mini-fridge now it came with an average
07:43
110 volt plug and not but this end is
07:46
different it’s only two I’ll show it to
07:48
you
07:57
okay so as you can see it’s like a
08:00
two-prong it’s it’s well made you know
08:04
I’m saying it’s similar to like a
08:06
computer power cord all right so that
08:10
came with it you didn’t you didn’t have
08:11
to buy separately they didn’t charge you
08:13
separately so think fucking dog you know
08:15
otherwise how are you gonna part now
08:17
this refrigerator can also work in a
08:19
vehicle it has 12 volt power I haven’t
08:23
tested it I will has to actually two
08:26
cigarette adapters but they’re they both
08:30
don’t work I have an older vehicle that
08:32
some of the inside wiring is fuck saw I
08:35
need to repair that so I wasn’t able to
08:36
test that otherwise I would and I would
08:38
have told you but this I’ll show it to
08:40
you now
08:41
it’s got all’s it has on the back and
08:43
I’ll show it to you it has the you know
08:45
where you plug in the two prongs and
08:48
then it has 12 volt power source that
08:51
you would plug in any any automobile
08:53
cigarette adapter
08:54
it’ll power it and then it’s got an
08:57
on-off switch that’s it now it says
09:00
we’ll get into the I I have the Box
09:04
actually I save boxes if I bought a
09:08
ceramic heater and I made a video and I
09:10
got some views I saved the box I still
09:12
have it it’s out in my my vehicle I will
09:16
save this box even though I fucking
09:18
can’t stand Pepsi and Coke and anything
09:21
commercialized they didn’t have like a
09:23
generic one I was hoping and it could be
09:26
because of what’s going on yeah if you
09:28
notice in stores when I got when I went
09:30
to get I also needed a mouse they didn’t
09:33
have any wired mice and this is a
09:36
Walmart this is a big fucking Walmart
09:38
not just a little smaller one no this is
09:40
an average-sized Walmart with the
09:42
grocery store inside and everything they
09:45
didn’t have any wired my so that’s why I
09:46
bought the wireless I don’t even like
09:48
Wireless mice but I but I do have right
09:51
here I made a video I made a video about
09:53
this onn wired mouse haven’t had a
09:55
problem this thing I love it it it’s
09:57
great it fits great it works great no
10:00
problems this was only like eight nine
10:01
dollars at Walmart
10:03
no problems so far so I thought well you
10:07
know I the wired mouse is great I’ve
10:09
dropped it
10:10
hasn’t broke so I decided by this this
10:14
one in wireless mouse because that’s all
10:16
basically they had well they had all
10:17
their I lied but not intentionally I
10:19
don’t want to make this video too long
10:21
I’m running out of the 10 minute mark so
10:22
yeah I have a big fucking mouth but who
10:23
cares fuck you your if you’re offended
10:25
by my free speech get the fuck off my
10:27
youtube channel dislike this video do
10:29
not comment because you cannot and don’t
10:31
you dare subscribe to my youtube channel
10:33
ok let’s move along so I have the box
10:36
and quickly 6 can mini beverage center
10:38
is on the front as you can see this is
10:41
the original box I just bought it like
10:43
what like a week and a half ago so I’ve
10:46
had it for like a week or almost two
10:48
weeks because the this hotel room they
10:50
don’t have a refrigerator I asked they
10:53
might have some rooms but yeah yeah
10:55
they’ll charge you more I’m not making
10:57
that shit up though if some rooms don’t
10:59
have refrigerators they’ll charge you
11:01
more for a room that has a refrigerator
11:03
or it could be a room with two beds or a
11:05
larger room that could be more expensive
11:06
I was like you know what I picked this
11:08
room because it’s on the end of this
11:10
building and compared to the other hotel
11:13
rooms I’ve stayed at I can actually get
11:15
sleep it is very quiet I’m almost never
11:18
hear anybody they’ve got I think they’ve
11:20
got really good soundproofing because
11:22
people have been staying in the room
11:23
next to me and I almost never hear
11:25
anything now there’s some knucklehead
11:27
behind me that fucking slams his door
11:29
but other than that it’s not like I hear
11:30
a TV or anything are anyways that’s very
11:33
important to me now if you notice this
11:35
picture on the box it says it can fit
11:37
six cans but even even on the box
11:50
even on the box they look like they’re
11:52
crammed in there like they’re bare they
11:54
can barely fit both sides of the box
11:57
have the same picture there’s a little
11:59
window and it’s like why yeah can you
12:04
see it on the camera there’s a plastic
12:07
window so I can stare in at my orange
12:10
juice that you know it’s cooling we’ll
12:12
get to that we’ll get to what it can
12:15
cool the temperature rating anything you
12:19
know that’s it now oh oh on the one side
12:23
of the box quickly hold six twelve ounce
12:26
cans azure for 12 to 24 ounce bottles
12:31
total interior volume is four liters so
12:34
it’s not very large compact and portable
12:38
with the carrying handle so it can be
12:39
easily taken with you wherever you go
12:41
yes cools now this is important to me
12:44
cools up to 32 to 45 degrees Fahrenheit
12:47
below ambient room temperature I’ve got
12:51
an air conditioner running 32 degrees
12:54
celsuis thats technically freezing now I
12:59
tried it for five days I had some frozen
13:02
fruit and I’ll try to show them to you
13:05
this will be a lot longer video and I
13:07
thought I would make I’m right at the
13:08
14-minute mark fuck alright I had some
13:14
frozen food impact plastic packaging
13:19
didn’t freeze it kept him cool but they
13:22
thought out because they were frozen
13:24
when I bought them so it doesn’t freeze
13:26
items now so however it does say it
13:32
cools up to 32 to 45 degrees heavy-duty
13:36
locking latch and door hands died now I
13:40
disagree with that statement it’s right
13:43
here and I’ll show it to you
13:44
it looks like it’s flimsy it looks like
13:46
it might be made out of that cheap
13:47
plastic that could just break off so
13:50
we’ll see we’ll see heavy-duty locking
13:53
latch and door hinge to keep your
13:55
beverages or snacks secure I think they
13:58
could have made a better made door right
14:01
here latch but we’ll see
14:04
a viewing window allows you to see in so
14:08
you know when it’s time to refill oh I
14:11
get it
14:11
you can look how big the window is what
14:14
you literally have to stick your fucking
14:17
head yeah dude stick your you have to do
14:20
this let’s say let’s see how many sodas
14:27
do I have well let’s see I gotta stick
14:29
my goddamn fucking face all the way up
14:31
to the window and my eye well let’s see
14:33
out of the corner I think I see a third
14:35
soda oh well you know what I could just
14:38
fucking open the door alright easy to
14:43
clean fully insulated interior features
14:45
a cell shelf yes it does come with a
14:47
shelf actually for storing small snacks
14:52
thermoelectric cooling system keeps your
14:54
beverages and snacks at just the right
14:55
temperature are consistently quiet and
14:58
safe from vibration powered by a hundred
15:00
and twenty volt which is indoor power
15:03
plugs into a 12-volt car adapter or home
15:07
outlet both cords are included yes yeah
15:10
I couldn’t believe it both of them
15:12
I’ll show you yeah sometimes when you
15:14
buy products well especially oh that
15:17
Mouse you know what that Mouse that onn
15:20
Mouse which is his Chinese company it
15:22
came with batteries a lot of you know
15:24
neon that I don’t watch television that

15:43
well yeah and you don’t have any huh you
15:47
don’t have any batteries in your home
15:48
all right
15:48
I always thought that was cheap that is
15:52
cheap to me but alright now this is the
15:55
12 volt adapter they’re still in the
15:57
original plastic bag that came with this
16:00
refer little mini fridge and it looks
16:03
like it’s decent quality it’s got two
16:04
prongs or that you plug into the back
16:07
and then it’s got the adapter this is
16:09
what would be known as a cigarette
16:11
lighter adapter twelve volt this should
16:14
this will yeah this will fit in any
16:16
cigarette adapt
16:17
and it will power the little fridge all
16:19
right anything else it came with this
16:21
other plastic covering on over the
16:25
refrigerator and then here’s the which
16:28
I’ll I may never use because I’m storing
16:31
my very important I’m storing orange
16:36
juice with pulp this is the little
16:39
plastic it looks like it’s halfway
16:42
decent made shelf
16:51
it looks like it’s pretty permanent you
16:54
know all you never know with nowadays
16:57
man but yeah it looks halfway decent all
17:00
right let’s put everything back and it
17:02
came with an instruction manual
17:17
okay I’m not gonna read oh no no no but
17:19
I just quickly
17:21
okay the model number is in the you the
17:23
title of this video so if you’re
17:24
interested in it and I and I’ll show you
17:26
where to go get it from Walmart I’m
17:28
already at the 17 minute mark it is the
17:31
MS excuse me M is 133 PEP for Pepsi I
17:39
all just I wish they had a generic one
17:43
they had nothing they had the big 1.6
17:46
1.7 cubic refrigerators and then they
17:48
had this this was the last one that they
17:50
had and I was like fuck I was like and I
17:54
had already bought some frozen food but
17:57
I changed my mind I didn’t want to spend
17:59
80 or 100 bucks for a big fucking
18:03
refrigerator fo it will cool and it
18:07
would have frozen everything would have
18:08
been nice they had different brands but
18:11
I was like nah man and then I changed my
18:14
eating habit so anyways but most of the
18:20
most of the frozen items I was able to
18:21
buy kept it by their the air conditioner
18:25
and the this kept it cool enough that it
18:28
did not spoil but you might want to be
18:30
aware that if you have food at 32 to 45
18:32
degrees quickly what else it doesn’t
18:36
cover over much it’s in a different
18:39
language here it doesn’t have much it
18:43
just has features cold the unit can
18:46
chill 32 to 32 degrees Fahrenheit 18
18:50
degrees Celsius but it does not because
18:53
I ran it for five days and it cooled but
18:57
now it wasn’t frozen still it wasn’t no
19:00
no no 12 volt we already went over that
19:05
mode selection it only has 3 buttons
19:07
I’ll show you the back well it excuse me
19:09
and only it has a 12 volt power 120 volt
19:14
power and then the on/off switch that’s
19:16
it it does not have a an adjustment it
19:23
doesn’t have like high or low or it
19:26
doesn’t have a temperature gauge or
19:27
anything it’s just either on or off it
19:29
has a green light that’s
19:32
maintenance or blah blah all right
19:34
that’s it that’s it anything that’s it
19:37
so this can all go back and I’ll keep
19:42
everything that’s how I am I even keep
19:44
boxes because when I leave this hotel
19:46
room you know I’m gonna want to put this
19:48
back in and you know oh and everything
19:56
on the back of the box yeah it went over
19:59
everything I went in this video is
20:01
listed on the back of the box see now
20:08
let’s let’s open it up I don’t like this
20:10
handle man
20:11
I think this handle is pretty janky I
20:17
don’t know about this dude look there it
20:21
is now I have to be careful because I’ve
20:23
got I cooked too much oatmeal and I got
20:27
pissed up myself and so I just crammed
20:29
it in this plastic cup at this hotel and
20:31
I crammed it in there now as you can see
20:33
there’s not much room and I also have
20:35
the my pasta sauce I don’t I don’t have
20:39
any like pots and pans I don’t have a
20:41
kitchenette some hotels have kitchenette
20:43
some of the extended stay hotels will
20:45
have a kitchenette this is not an
20:47
extended-stay hotel and they don’t have
20:49
any you know it’s a so I keep this in
20:51
there because you don’t want pasta paste
20:54
to little spoil but this refrigerator
20:58
keeps it cool enough that it did not
20:59
spoil I had it for five days so that’s
21:02
good so I eat some pastas or mostly raw
21:06
food vegan but I eat some brains a
21:09
little bit of pasta about a cup per day
21:11
and then this is just paste and I add
21:15
some water and it flavors it enough for
21:17
me so and then I need to clean it you
21:21
know on it I’m a clean freak
21:38
I don’t even know how the fuck it got
21:39
dirty here just a little bit of sauce
21:42
maybe yeah that’s gross now another
21:47
thing I want to tell you is this seal is
21:49
real janky man there’s this seal right
21:57
here with the door and look right here
22:02
it comes out like it literally comes off
22:05
its come off more than once see look
22:07
look how easy is this is real flimsy I
22:12
don’t I don’t even know if this is
22:14
required it’s Co you know it seals right
22:17
here there is a little crevice here that
22:19
sticks out around ya you probably want a
22:23
seal but this is so cheap and janky and
22:25
I have it come off more than once so
22:28
it’s got some screws underneath the seal
22:31
for the door it’s got a plastic it’s all
22:35
plastic no glass but I thought that was
22:38
pretty pathetic Pepsi brand reframing
22:42
fridge with the fucking look at this
22:44
this this is cheap to me man
22:46
I can already tell man I swear you know
22:49
I wouldn’t be surprised if later down
22:51
the road this breaks off and then how
22:53
the fuck what the fuck am I gonna do
22:54
hopefully I’ll still be able to you know
22:56
open the fridge
22:58
it doesn’t even turn all the way alright
23:00
and then as you can see this is a what
23:05
fifty nine nine fifty nine ounce sprouts
23:09
brand orange juice with pulp
23:13
I would prefer eating oranges but that’s
23:16
a lot of oranges I try to buy the best
23:18
orange juice I can get the healthiest I
23:21
try to avoid this is pasteurized and
23:23
then in a net you don’t necessarily want
23:25
to drink pasteurized orange juice you
23:27
want to drink like just get some oranges
23:29
and then squeeze them and then yeah
23:31
however in a hotel you know what I’m
23:36
saying I could do that but I have to buy
23:38
a bunch of shitload of oranges this
23:40
isn’t bad plus it does have pulp
23:43
I’ve studied in drinking orange juice is
23:46
usually as sometimes well to me it’s
23:48
better that it has pulp now as you can
23:51
see
23:52
the inside the shelf would go right here
23:56
here I could even quickly quickly don’t
24:02
move
24:03
oh yeah well anyways the Shelf it’s up
24:06
towards the top it just goes like this
24:17
somehow there we go
24:23
there goddamnit
24:28
there there’s the shelf BAM so it’s very
24:34
small it fits a 59 ounce container of
24:40
orange juice and then there’s a little
24:42
bit of room on the side and a little bit
24:44
of room maybe an inch or two on the side
24:47
an inch or two in front of it that’s it
24:50
that’s it man
24:50
that’s it dude so let’s see what else
24:53
can I show you yeah it’s it stays pretty
24:57
cool though my orange juice
24:59
it does not spoil so this is the second
25:02
orange juice I’ve had it doesn’t spoil
25:05
it actually cools similar to a
25:07
refrigerator so I’ve not had problems
25:09
with orange juice cuz the orange juice
25:10
is extremely important to me because
25:12
this is now that more natural glucose
25:15
and this gives you energy if you if
25:17
you’re low on energy you’re not
25:18
consuming enough carbs or you know
25:20
glucose you know I’m saying you don’t
25:23
need coffee
25:23
you don’t need caffeine you don’t need
25:25
to fucking drink Pepsi
25:35
there it is
26:06
there’s the on/off switch
26:11
got our fan
26:23
okay 28 26 minute mark not bad not bad
26:31
yeah I want to see you make a review
26:34
video and do it freestyle like I do or
26:36
anything further it when they say
26:38
mini-fridge it’s mini and I showed you
26:42
the on/off switch I showed you the two
26:44
the receptacles for the 12 volt and 120
26:47
volt power I showed you the sticker it
26:50
has a fan I think the fan I think the
26:52
fan is always on because I notice it
26:55
heats up a little bit behind it and this
26:58
got Vance on all sides you know what I
27:00
could show you the bottom there’s really
27:02
nothing on the bottom and all the handle
27:40
okay okay that’s enough now what I’m
27:43
gonna show you is let me pull up the
27:45
Walmart page no I think Walmart has an
27:47
affiliate program although man I’m
27:49
really I mean that would be really
27:51
hypocritical I’m really opposed to
27:54
Walmart but I don’t like shopping there
27:57
and but really around here or where
28:02
there’s jl most mom-and-pop shops which
28:05
to me is by design or out of business
28:08
and that well bit when you go to walmart
28:10
now even there the low on stock you’re
28:14
on Sam alright let’s go to the internet
28:16
and let’s get the fuck out of here
28:18
then I got a other shit to do anyways
28:21
alright like I got her all right so let
28:25
me I meanwhile look up the Walmart page
28:30
for this mini-frig Walmart
28:34
let’s see Pepsi Pepsi 6 can Nene now I
28:41
think that I think they might have some
28:42
in red yeah I think this is it right
28:46
here
28:46
free freezer list mini fridges yeah it
28:51
won’t freeze here it is this is it right
28:54
here this is the same one yeah and let’s
28:59
see there there it is
29:09
this is the same fridge all they come in
29:11
different colors not just red looks like
29:14
red was that oh doctor the dr. pepper
29:18
color and pepper yeah oh you know what
29:24
what the fuck is it doing oh but what
29:27
Budweiser they got a Budweiser one I
29:29
don’t drink alcohol so that’s there
29:32
there’s a lot of sugar but that’s
29:34
refined processed that’s like now plus
29:37
alcohol kills brain cells and so now dr.
29:41
pepper
29:42
Mountain Dew they have a mountain Dew
29:43
one although I don’t know why it’s taken
29:46
forever to load oh there it is oh my god
29:50
oh this handle right here yeah I don’t I
29:53
don’t agree with their marketing
29:54
bullshit that’s like some of the that
29:57
cheap plastic and you notice how it
29:59
looks like it’s shiny
30:02
that’s that fake paint that they put
30:04
over plastic to make it shiny make you
30:07
think it’s metal metal nah
30:09
and now that’s pretty janky and when you
30:12
know it only it turns a little bit and I
30:16
don’t know I could see where that may
30:17
break off right I could be wrong you
30:19
know I’m saying anyways there’s the
30:22
Mountain Dew one how about the beer one
30:25
I’m not an affiliate for any of these
30:28
companies oh there’s the Budweiser one
30:29
they didn’t have any of them all they
30:31
had was this fucking Pepsi one I was
30:35
hoping they had a generic one you know
30:36
what else there’s a sticker on the front
30:39
where the logo is I thought that they’d
30:43
painted the logo on that and I could
30:45
just peel it off wrong it comes off but
30:48
you can still see the logo so what I
30:50
might do is I might actually paint it
30:52
myself
30:53
I’d have to peel off that excuse me I’d
30:57
have to peel off that whatever that film
31:02
is on the front I have I actually have a
31:05
heater but a heater a heat gun but boy I
31:09
don’t know man so I don’t want to
31:11
butcher it any more than our I might I
31:13
kind of start peeling off the I don’t
31:15
think you can tell but yeah I plan on
31:18
trying to paint over that goddamn
31:20
god-awful Pepsi fucking logo
31:22
shit anything else they got 43 reviews
31:27
you can get it shipped but I found it at
31:30
my local Walmart anything further it’s
31:35
pretty basic or they have they have
31:37
another model that’s I think $10 more I
31:40
think that holds 12 that would have been
31:44
even better because then I would have
31:46
had enough room for my fuckup where I
31:48
cooked too much oatmeal and now I try to
31:54
I try to control my grains cuz anyways
31:57
and then my little paste that’s all I
32:00
need right now I don’t I don’t use it
32:02
for anything else I don’t need to worry
32:03
about frozen food anymore so it’s
32:06
perfect for my orange juice and then
32:09
maybe some you know my paste anything
32:13
else see more info oh here it is the six
32:22
cans and barely oh here it is here’s
32:26
what I’m talking about this seal right
32:28
here right where that my mouse is at it
32:31
key came off mobile times like two or
32:33
three times its really annoying it’s
32:35
really cheap it’s just made out of like
32:37
a cheap foam type material and but you
32:43
notice right here where my cursor is at
32:45
on the outside of the opening there’s a
32:48
little groove plastic that sticks out
32:50
very very small but that probably
32:55
requires the seal I’m thinking if you
32:57
did not have the seal this might not
33:00
seal very well in a main lose air you
33:04
know may not cool as well because why
33:06
else would they have the seal you might
33:08
be able to yeah I bet you what you could
33:10
do is get if you’re handy with this type
33:14
of you know projects you might be able
33:16
to get some better seal material and
33:20
really cram it in there better so it
33:23
doesn’t come out it came off all the way
33:25
like to over here so I had this long
33:27
piece I had to reinsert and that’s
33:31
happened like two or three times so I
33:33
thought that was janky but it’s only $30
33:35
you know I’m saying
33:36
well six cans or four liters blah blah
33:39
blah we went over all this well now this
33:41
says cools from 27 to 36 degrees
33:44
Fahrenheit well on the box it fucking
33:46
said 32 to 45 I know for a fact it
33:50
doesn’t cool down to 32 because none of
33:53
my frozen items remain frozen it’s 10
33:58
inches by 7 by 10 and a half compact
34:02
see-through window and we already went
34:04
over the power anything else it does
34:07
latch now it does latch this this handle
34:09
right here here well yeah I already
34:12
showed you it does latch what what you
34:14
do is you just press you press tight and
34:16
it will you’ll hear a snapping noise so
34:18
it latches and then you just turn to the
34:21
left
34:22
to open the door so that works but I’m
34:24
telling you know I could be wrong with
34:25
that handle looks janky all right
34:27
low noise oh yeah it’s got a motor and I
34:31
can I can’t really hear anything I think
34:32
the fan constantly spins but I could be
34:34
wrong I know I don’t hear the fan and I
34:37
haven’t had a problem with it
34:38
overheating I’ve had it for two weeks
34:39
and it works just like it’s supposed to
34:42
it keeps my orange juice and my a paste
34:44
and my my some oatmeal for tomorrow cool
34:49
store snacks beverages and skincare
34:52

34:57

you sell fucking coffee mugs with your
35:09
picture on it because you’re
35:10
narcissistic and you wear makeup on
35:14

35:56
I’ll show you these are the exact same
35:58
ones actually two of them did you know
36:02
you can get these for a dollar at Dollar
36:03
Tree idolatry frozen fruit I’m
36:08
particular the peaches are terrible to
36:12
me they’re bland there’s like eating ice
36:15
yeah anyways but yeah I’ll do like some
36:18
of the Dollar Tree fruit and you can use
36:20
it to make smoothies and all that if
36:22
you’re a vegan or yeah that’s gonna be
36:25
real glucose I I just thought it I don’t
36:28
even cut nother no you do not want to
36:30
cook fruits and vegetables because
36:31
you’re cooking away all the important
36:33
antioxidants and vitamins and minerals
36:36
and amino acids but let me show you on
36:39
screen what I did store in that
36:41
refrigerator really quick right here on
36:43
the right hand side whoops
36:46
right here let me open this up open
36:48
image and new tab or yes this right no
36:52

36:54
here this is exactly what I had I had
36:55
the tropical blend I think they’re 12
36:57
ounce and I it fluctuated today I would
37:02
eat two of these and then and then
37:04
another frozen and then some some
37:07
vegetables from Dollar Tree I had four
37:11
of these right here the same basically
37:13
the same time package that fit they fit
37:15
almost perfect
37:16
however they thought out but they were
37:19
cool enough that they did not spoil so
37:21
just to let you know that even though on
37:23
the box it says 32 degrees which is
37:26
technically freezing well but then you
37:29
look on their their Walmart page it says
37:31
27 degrees Fahrenheit well I’m telling
37:35
right now at least this refrigerator did
37:37
not keep these frozen and it did not
37:41
keep the vegetables that the the mixed
37:44
vegetables that came in a package that
37:45
were frozen they thought out as well and
37:48
I bought them I just came from the
37:50
Dollar Tree and I stuffed a little
37:52
fridge with what was it one day’s worth
37:55
three three of these yeah that you’re
37:58
looking around 800 calories so believe
38:01
it or not it and that’s gonna be that’s
38:03
gonna be glucose and plus you do you
38:05
also want to eat fruits
38:07
excuse me vegetables too you want to
38:09
also eat vegetables not just necessarily
38:10
fruit but now I don’t know that’s just
38:12

39:24
took was one drop on the floor and the
39:26
motherfucker broke adios

Blackweb Wireless Mouse – Review

I ran into another disaster in information technology. This time I had purchased a Blackweb wireless mouse from a local Walmart. I paid $11.94 not including tax for this wireless mouse.

However, I dropped it one time from a table at a motel I was staying at. The floor was a hardwood floor. Well this mouse quit working after that one drop to the floor.

I then proceeded to take this mouse apart to try to fix it. What happaned was that a small piece of plastic broke off from the mouse wheel. There are two small pieces of plastic on both sides of the scroll mouse wheel, that interact with the functioning of this mouse.

This fatal drop caused the demise of this Blackweb wireless mouse. Mice and keyboards to me should be able to sustain drops. I am not talking about throwing and or slamming a mouse or keyboard.

I am talking about simple innocent accidental drops of mice and or keyboards. I tried fixing this missing plastic piece with electrical tape to no avail. I only spent $11.94 for this wireless mouse so it was not worth my time and or effort to salvage this Blackweb wireless mouse.

This mouse is compatible with the following operating systems:

  • Microsoft Windows 7
  • Microsoft Windows 8
  • Microsoft Windows 10
  • Apple Macintosh 10.5 Leopard and Newer

I was able to use this mouse with MX Linux 18.3, which is a Debian distribution derivation, even though the product guide does not mention Linux.

This mouse comes with the following buttons:

  • Left Button
  • Right Button
  • Scrool Wheel
  • Forward Button
  • Backward Button
  • DPI Switch
  • Connect Button
  • On and Off Switch

This Blackweb wireless mouse also comes with a Universal Serial Bus nano antenna receiver. This wireless mouse also came with a single double AA battery. A silver Energizer brand double AA battery was included.

I thought this was a nice touch. I hate those batteries not included products. This wireless mouse has 5 different DPI settings that I did not fiddle with.

Setting up and using this mouse on Linux no less was easy. You just take the back battery cover off and then install the included AA battery. Then you connect the Universal Serial Bus antenna receiver to your computer.

Now you turn the wireless mouse on with the on off switch. Viola, I was controlling my Linux computer with this mouse. It just sucks that one drop was fatal.

This mouse connected automatically to the Universal Serial Bus antenna receiver, so I did not need to use the connect button.

mouse real quick
03:04
okay so now I’m gonna take it out of its
03:08
packaging again I saved it to make this
03:10
video because this would turn into a
03:12
fucking utter disaster
03:14
I paid eleven I have the receipt
03:17
somewhere I paid like 11:30 for $11.34
03:23
for it or something like that at Walmart
03:25
and including not including taxes and I
03:30
dropped it once and it quit working and
03:32
I was like you gotta be fucking kidding
03:35
me no I didn’t throw it I didn’t you
03:37
know slam it down or I didn’t throw it
03:39
it fell off like the table that I was
03:41
using alright so let’s open up this
03:46
Janka tea packaging it’s a I mean it
03:52
looked like a decent Mouse
03:57
and here here’s the mouse itself and the
04:02
packaging and all that that comes with
04:04
it it comes with a small little product
04:10
guy but there’s really not much to it
04:12
you know where I’m sits a mouse so what
04:15
it doesn’t even tell you if you drop it
04:20
it will not work yeah it actually does
04:25
it has description Windows 7 Windows 8
04:28
Windows 10 Mac OS 10.5 or later and it
04:32
works on Linux I’m using MX Linux
04:34
night at the time it was eighteen point
04:37
three left button right button scroll
04:40
wheel forward backward dpi switch key
04:44
nano receiver which is the wireless
04:46
receiver USB battery cover connect
04:49
button off on switch okay
04:55
forward-backward DPS which I didn’t fuck
04:58
with the DPS which it has a little
05:00
compartment where the battery and then
05:03
also the antenna fit the USB antenna all
05:07
right
05:09
wireless mouse down a receiver one
05:11
double a battery user’s manual yeah all
05:14
right so I didn’t even read the little
05:17
guide but yeah so it has this little
05:20
plastic door you just stick your your
05:24
fingernail in or whatever and just pull
05:26
out and there it comes off so it’s just
05:29
like that alright now I mean I can yeah
05:37
when I first started using I was like I
05:40
don’t know the scroll wheel is a bit
05:43
it’s really not it kind of moves you can
05:48
feel it move which is okay but when you
05:53
take it apart a pretty cheap plastic and
05:56
then it has a dpi button but I never
05:59
fuck with it and then it’s got it’s got
06:02
left and right buttons when you press
06:05
down it has two side buttons I never I
06:08
never use those but whatever and then
06:11
the battery fits in there and then it’s
06:15
got the compartment for the antenna the
06:18
USB nano receiver
06:35
all right and then
06:41
okay the lighting in here isn’t the best
06:44
for these kind of demonstrations but I
06:46
don’t fucking care now I took it apart
06:51
there were I’m trying to think there was
06:54
at least one screw – there were two
06:58
small screws there’s little little
07:01
plastic that has blue on it to hide the
07:05
screw holes and then was there another
07:08
one you know behind here yeah there were
07:11
four so that there’s this plastic piece
07:14
with glue on it to hide the screws I
07:18
just I’ve worked on you know computed
07:22
you know computers for decades now so
07:25
it’s like most mice are are held with
07:29
screws and a lot of times they’re hidden
07:32
behind little pieces of plastic or
07:35
rubber that have glue so I took it apart
07:39
and then it just lifts off and then I’m
07:42
gonna show you I should be able to show
07:44
let me describe it first oh you know
07:46
what so here’s the scroll wheel it’s
07:50
painted with that false to make it look
07:57
like it’s shiny and all that but I’ve
07:59
noticed that plastic that’s painted like
08:01
that a lot of times it’s not very good
08:04
it’s not very strong so here’s the wheel
08:08
and then I will the one it’s got two
08:13
little pieces of plastic on each side
08:16
that sits down and that they fit into
08:21
this other
08:26
then they kind of fit in and then as the
08:30
the scroll mouse wheel moves its you
08:36
know connected to the left and the right
08:38
mice and then also the scroll well it
08:42
broke off one side broke off and I’ll
08:44
show it to you
09:05
so did you should have noticed the green
09:08
the little green has painted green now
09:10
that this I didn’t break off the other
09:13
one did so this little piece of plastic
09:17
I think yeah it broke off and you even
09:22
though I dropped the mouse about I don’t
09:24
know five feet off the floor
09:27
I dropped it once and it quit working it
09:29
is because this other side of the wheel
09:32
the little tab broke off and then it
09:36
fucked nothing you know
09:38
well it’s war it’s it’s useless because
09:40
it’s this on the scroll wheel I was like
09:44
man so sometimes you do get what you pay
09:47
for but the rest of the mouse is is if
09:51
you yeah if you have an old mouse you
09:53
might want to take them apart just a
09:56
reverse engineer and see how they work
09:59
so this is what it looks like without
10:00
the cover and it’s got a circuit board
10:03
and it’s got a power cable it’s got two
10:07
small boards actually
10:28
alright well that is my review of this
10:31
mouse because it doesn’t work man I
10:36
tried to fix it I tried to like tape you
10:40
know try it too I I had the little piece
10:43
that broke off
10:44
I lost it somewhere it actually kind of
10:48
yeah completely broke off I had it in
10:51
the packaging and I lost it or I might
10:53
have thrown it away I might have
10:54
forgotten about it I wanted to show you
10:56
you know that it did break off on the
11:00
one side of the wheel and I tried to fix
11:05
it I tried to tape it back to hold it it
11:10
wouldn’t it wouldn’t spin right you
11:12
might be able to glue it probably yeah
11:15
if you had some superglue but the mouse
11:17
is only $11 so I was like you know what
11:19
by the time I fucking you know I don’t
11:22
have superglue but to spend the time
11:25
trying if that he would even work you
11:28
could proud you might if you’re good
11:30
with electronics and plastics you might
11:33
be able to heat it up and then you know
11:36
like on a circuit board you can you do
11:39
know that you can fix your own circuit
11:40
boards your mother goes out motherboard
11:43
goes out it could be because of anyways
11:46
I don’t want to digress too much but if
11:48
you know how to solder you could soldier
11:51
in you might be able to you know heat it
11:54
up and get some plastic or something
11:57
some light he so heat it up and then
12:01
stick it on there or a superglue and
12:03
hold it hold it right or let leave it
12:06
let it dry I don’t know if if I draw if
12:10
all’s I did here I’ll demonstrate I
12:15
don’t want to scratch now this is
12:16
synthetic flooring here is similar to
12:19
what the other floor that I think that
12:21
was real a hardwood floor this is I
12:23
think synthetic I don’t think this mouse
12:25
is gonna scratch up this hotel room so
12:30
what I’m going to do is
12:31
I can even what I can do is I don’t want
12:35
to scratch up the floor is I’m going to
12:39
put this little cover back on come on
12:44
bitch
12:48
there it goes and we will put the
12:51
cardboard down on the floor and this is
12:55
about the yeah this is about how high it
12:57
was well it broke oh well fuck Chet if
13:04
if if it can’t if the mouse wheel can’t
13:08
survive that drop then how the fuck are
13:14
you gonna fix it I’m just not I’m not
13:18
you know alright so there is my review
13:25
video of the black web that I found I
13:29
purchased this at Walmart the black web
13:33
mouse that it looked kind of nice my
13:38
next video I think I don’t know I don’t
13:41
lie intentionally I bought another Mouse
13:44
or wireless mouse the onn brand from the
13:49
same Walmart for Less $8 $9 and that one
13:54
works just great
13:56
now I don’t intentionally try it drop
13:59
mice I don’t throw you don’t want to
14:02
throw no you never want to throw around
14:05
you know mice and keyboard but to me a
14:09
keyboard and a mouse it should survive a
14:13
drop a slam or throw no but a drop this
14:23
should survive that oh my god I’m not –
14:28
it’s only $11 I don’t know if I could
14:32
even get a warranty
14:33

think my next video will be about the
14:50
other wireless mouse that works just
14:52
great and I’ll actually like it I don’t
14:55
like Wireless mice adios

Zyxel Router Login – For EMG2926 Q10A

Another computer support request on a third party website where I earn supplemental income answering computer and technology related questions. Here is the original question posted verbatim.

How do I login to my Zyxel router.

This individual owned a Zyxel EMG2926_Q10A router. The default username is “supervisor” or “admin” without quotations. The default password is “supervisor” or “1234” without quotations.

My gold tip for this question, is that you should probably change your router password from the default. Many Internet routers, you cannot change the default username. However, most if not all I have dealt with, you can change the password.

It can be a security risk not to change the default password. I was able to quickly find the default username and password for this Zyxel EMG2926_Q10A router. If I was able to obtain this default login information, then anyone could have access to it.

Finally, in order to get to the login page, you would type in 192.168.1.1 into a web browser. First you want to connect your computer, laptop, tablet, etc. into the router with an Ethernet cable or via wireless connection. Once that device obtains an IP address then you should be able to login.

Your device must be on the same sub network. If the router IP address is 192.168.1.1 then your device IP address must be 192.168.1.X. The X is any number up to 255.

You can access the manual for this Zyxel EMG2926_Q10A router.

Onkyo CX-70 – Audio Receiver Testing

I recently received a couple of items for recycling. One of them being an old school Onkyo CX-70 receiver. This device is fucking heavy.

This audio receiver is mostly made out of steel and aluminum. There is very little plastic found. However, I noticed a few faulty items.

Two of the speaker connectors were loose. Also, I think the built in antenna was not properly connected. I decided to test this receiver out.

I love fucking around with electronics. Also, I like to repair or figure out how to repair electronics. Sound systems is not my niche.

I am up for learning new things though. This receiver I initially thought would be perhaps 20 years old. I performed a quick Google search and found one listing over at Radio Museum.org with 1981 as the manufactured date.

I could not find a manufactured date sticker on this Onkyo CX-70. At first I thought it was possible it would not power on. The individual that dropped it off did NOT know if it worked or not.

I plugged it in and powered it on and I did NOT see any visual display that it worked. I started to fiddle around with the AM switch. Low and behold I saw a red light.

Some green lights started flashing. I think the receiver was tuned into a radio station. Later on I have concluded that many of the green power lights do NOT work.

For example as soon as you turn on this Onkyo receiver, you should see green lights above the power button. This audio receiver has a cassette tape player that opens with or without the device plugged in to live power.

That is kind of a cool feature. Perhaps in case the cassette tape gets stuck? I don’t know the answer to that question. I found some jankety speaker I think from a liquid crystal display that had a busted screen.

Anyhow, I quickly hooked this speaker up to the older school type speaker connectors. You literally connect bare speaker wire to the receiver. Not RCA type connectors.

I was able to hear AM radio. This receiver actually works. I tested out the FM receiver and that also worked.

I was a bit surprised. I do NOT own any cassette tapes, so I was not able to test that. However, later I did test the reverse, forward, stop, and start buttons.

They all seem to work. This receiver has four connectors for straight speaker wire. You can hook up just two speakers.

There are both positive and negative speaker wire connectors. This Onkyo CX-70 also includes two RCA connectors. Unfortunately, I do not have any of those type of speakers either.

This allows you to hook up two speakers with left and right connectors. This unit includes an external AM antenna connector for straight speaker wire. Also, one 75 ohm and one 300 ohm FM antenna connectors.

There is one straight through speaker wire ground connector. Interestingly, there is a 120 watt power plug. This would allow you to power another device.

There is a 150 maximum watt amplifier with this Onkyo CX-70 receiver. There is a quarter inch microphone connection and a quarter inch headphones jack connection. There is then obviously a record button with the cassette feature.

This receiver has the following adjustments:

* volume
* tuning
* fm or am
* tuner or phono
* source or cassette
* loudness on or off
* balance
* treble
* bass
* microphone level

The tape cassette player has the following buttons:

* record
* rewind
* play
* fast forward
* stop
* timer/pause

The tape cassette player has two adjusting knobs:

* dolby nr out or in
* tape select high, metal or normal

I am going to try to sell this Onkyo CX-70 locally probably on Craigslist. I really do NOT have a use for it as I do NOT listen to commercial over the air radio. I stream techno music without lyrics preferably.

If I cannot sell it I might keep it for testing purposes.

How to Run Multiple Versions of Office on One Computer

I received another request on a third party website where I earn supplemental income answering computer and technology related questions. Here is the original request:

“I have discovered that Quick Books will not export to Excel office 365 version. So I would like to install my legal copy of office 2010 on the laptop and use it’s Excel to work with the Quick Books files. Will this work OK, or will the new install somehow harm or delete office 365?”

The quick answer to this question is that yes, you can install multiple different versions of Microsoft Office suite software onto the same computer. This individual was using a computer with Microsoft Windows 10 operating system installed. Here is the rest of my response:

Yes, you can install multiple versions of Microsoft office on the same computer. However, you have to make sure that you change the directory that Microsoft office gets installed on. For example you would want Microsoft Office 2010 installed in a different folder compared to the Microsoft Office 365 installation

C:\Program Files\Office 2010

I would first verify where your existing Microsoft Office installation is located. It should be in one of these two folders:

C:\Program Files
C:\Program Files (x86)

Once you verify where Microsoft Office 365 is currently installed, then try to install Microsoft Office 2010. During the beginning of the installation, it will ask you the where you want to install Microsoft into. This is when and where you change the file path to something different then where Microsoft Office 365 is installed.

You want to make certain you pick a file path that is different otherwise you will overwrite files. You want to install Microsoft office 2010 like this:

C:\Program Files\Office 2010

Not in the downloads folder of your user account, if that is what you meant. If you install Microsoft Office 2010 in:

C:\Program Files\Office 2010

Then make certain that Microsoft Office 365 is currently installed in:

C:\Program Files\Office 365

This is an old school trick that I have known about for quite a few years. You just have to make certain you pick dynamic installation folders. Also, you may want to use a naming convention that is logical and not confusing.

You might want to keep the folder names short and targeted to the versions of Microsoft Office you are installing. If you forget or ever need to remove a version of Microsoft Office then you can just browse to:

C:\Program Files or C:\Program Files (x86). The (x86) folder is for 32 x86 bit applications. The folder without (x86) is where x64 64 bit applications become installed.

As long as you install Microsoft Office in different folders then you will be able to use multiple versions of Microsoft Office on your computer. This individual was able to successfully install both Microsoft Office 2010 and Microsoft Office 365 on the same exact computer without avoiding a major crisis. These instructions were written for a computer with Microsoft Windows 10 operating system installed.

This may seem like a strange request. However, in my time in corporate and government military America, this was a more common request than you might imagine. However, this information can be used for other Microsoft operating systems.

Format External Hard Drive – in Microsoft Windows 10

Another request from a third party website where I earn supplemental income. This one dealt with trying to free up space on an external hard drive. Here is this individual’s initial request:

“I am trying to remove old files from my backup hard drive. Does not seem to work any way I try!”

This individual had two external hard drives. An F and H drive. These two external hard drives had the exact same data.

They seemed to have been mirror images of each other. One reason why this individual could NOT remove data from their F drive is that it was actually a Microsoft system image backup. This type of backup does NOT allow you to have read only access or read and write access.

This type of backup is a system image. There were only a few files, but they were actually image files. Image files are generally compressed.

This type of backup is for emergency purposes. Hypothetically, if your Microsoft Windows 10 computer does NOT boot correctly, you could restore it from this type of system image backup. When I deal with customer data, I always proceed with caution.

You do NOT ever want to delete customer data, even accidentally. I asked this individual if they needed any data off this F drive. They stated no, more than once.

I went ahead and told them that I could just format this external hard drive for them. This would allow them to copy any type of data they wanted to this F drive. This is when I learned that their H drive was a mirror image of their F drive.

This individual gave me the approval. Formatting a hard drive in Microsoft operating system’s is real easy. You want to open up file explorer.

This takes you to “This PC”.

On the left hand side you will see folders, drive letters, and Network. Select the hard drive that you want to format. Right click that drive letter and select “Format”.

You can type in a volume label or just accept the default. You can accept the default of NTFS file system. Also, you will have two choices between “Quick” or “Full” format.

A full format takes quite a bit longer versus a quick format. However, performing a full format might be worth the wait later down the road. It is up to you what you choose.

Now proceed with formatting your hard drive. A quick format only takes a few seconds. I asked my customer to test the newly formatted hard drive.

Everything went smoothly. I have shown you how to format external hard drive in Microsoft Windows 10 operating system.

Lenovo Vantage – BIOS Update Instructions

Another computer support request, from a third party website where I earn supplemental income answering computer and technology related questions. This time an individual was concerned with a pop up message that they received on their newly purchased Lenovo laptop computer. Here is their request quoted verbatim:


I got a pop up from Lenovo Vantage that says: “Lenovo recommends that you install these updates to optimize your computer. Please note, the following updates may require your system to reboot more than once. We recommend saving your work in preparation for system shutdown.

BIOS Update – 10 [64]”. I wanted to find out if this was real, or a scam. Thanks for any help you can give me.”

Lenovo Vantage is NOT malware, spyware, or a scam. This is actually software that Lenovo developed to keep their computers updated. The problem could be is that this software was formerly known as Lenovo Companion, Lenovo Settings, and Lenovo Account Portal.

This software was designed specifically for Microsoft Windows 10 operating system. Personally, I think it is ridiculous when technology companies try to re-brand or rename their software packages. Just keep it the fucking same name or else you will confuse your very own customers, just like in this instance.

Anyways, I was able to remotely connect into this computer and upgrade the BIOS. This individual had just purchased a new Lenovo Ideapad 320 laptop. Whenever performing a BIOS upgrade, you should make sure that your active current AC adapter is plugged in.

You do NOT want your laptop to power off during a basic input output system upgrade. This type of disaster could potentially cause your computer to never boot again, no joke. Your computer will need to restart.

Your BIOS cannot get upgraded while your computer is in use. Basic input output system upgrades are much easier than say ten to twenty years ago. Depending on the hardware manufacturer they are as simple as opening the maintenance software, in this case, Lenovo Vantage, and checking for updates.

This software will notify you that there is a BIOS update available. Select this update and then go ahead and proceed with the download. You will obviously need an Internet connection.

Once this basic input output system update is finished downloading, you will be prompted to install the update. You will be warned that you are about to upgrade the BIOS and to make certain you want to perform this action. Also, when I upgraded this computers BIOS it warned me making certain I was installing a BIOS for an Lenovo ideapad 320-15IAP.

This BIOS was actually compatible with two of these laptops. The 320-14IAP and 320-15IAP. If in doubt do NOT perform a BIOS upgrade until you are certain you know the exact model of your computer.

I went into “System” in Microsoft Windows 10 “Settings”. Under “About”, I was able to verify that this individual had a 320-15IAP. Many times trying to install a BIOS upgrade for the wrong computer will result in error, but it is better to become cautious.

I went ahead and kicked off this BIOS update and then the Lenovo IdeaPad 320 restarted. The BIOS update was successful. In closing I requested this individual open Lenovo Vantage to verify if this BIOS update was successful and check for any new updates.

The basic input output system successfully updated. BIOS upgrades will fail, often times due to the fact you are trying to perform this update on the wrong computer model.

Reset PC Windows 10 – Instructions

I received a request on a third party website where I earn supplemental income answering computer and technology related questions. This individual wanted to return a recently purchased computer. However, they did NOT want to leave their virtual footprint(s) on this computer.

Here is their original request:

I need to return it to Amazon and I want to remove my identity from it. How can this be accomplished? I was getting it ready to use and discovered that the hum that it has makes me tense, so they have replaced it.

I’ve removed the programs I installed, but it still opens up with my name on the front waiting for me to log in.

They purchased an Acer Aspire with Microsoft Windows 10 operating system. Here is my response to this request. You can perform a “Reset this PC”.

This will reset your Microsoft Windows 10 computer back to when you purchased it. It will remove all your personal data and programs installed. Another possibility is performing a factory reset, which would reinstall Microsoft Windows 10 to back when you purchased it.

You can start a Reset this PC from within Windows. Right click the Windows 10 icon in lower left corner. Choose “Search” and type in “Reset this PC”.

Click on “Reset this PC. Click on “Get Started” under “Recovery”. You have two options to choose from.

Select the second one “Remove everything”. You will be given two choices again. Select the second choice “Remove files and clean the drive”.

Click on “Reset” to begin resetting that computer. Eventually, that computer will restart and complete the process. This Reset this PC option is in my opinion an excellent addition to Microsoft Windows 10.

One of the few positives of this problematic alleged operating system. This is similar to what is known as factory recovery, factory reset, etc. Factory recovery is normally created by original equipment manufacturers.

Reset this PC was instituted by Microsoft Corporation. When it works, it is a quick and easy way to reset your Microsoft Windows 10 computer to when you purchased it. Also, this would be an apropos tool to use if you wanted to sell your computer.

This will make it harder for anyone to obtain any of your person data. Although, the second option takes quite a bit longer, it is worth the wait. Finally, it is real easy to start the second option of Reset this PC.

I choose this solution over a factory recovery, because quite frankly this to me could be easier for an end user to perform. Some factory recovery solutions can get quite complicated. You would have to press a certain keystroke before Microsoft Windows 10 would try to boot.

Then, the end user would have to go through a menu of options. Also, there are times when a factory recovery will not work. I am NOT saying that factory recovery as a means to restore the operating system back to factory settings NOT a productive option.

My experiences are with an average computer user, if you can make it quicker and less complex, the better. If a Microsoft Windows 10 reset this PC would not have worked, then I would have went to plan b, a factory recovery. These instructions were written specifically succinctly for Microsoft Windows 10 operating system.

Reset this PC is only available in the Microsoft Windows 10 operating system.

MAC OS X 10.10 – Upgrade From 10.9.5 Instructions

I received the following request from a customer.

I need to update my computer from a 10.9.5 to a minimum of a 10.10, how can I do that without losing my files?

This individual had a Macbook Professional with Mavericks installed. They were trying to connect a new printer, a Canon TS5100. This install would not get past the set up stage, after loading the Canon installation CD-ROM.

Canon recommended upgrading MAC OS 10.9.5 Mavericks to at least MAC OS X 10.10 Yosemite. Below is my response with some instructions. Usually, upgrading your MAC OS does not affect your personal files. However, you can back your data manually to an external hard drive or USB flash drive.

Also, you can create a Time Machine backup of your computer. You can upgrade your Macintosh with operating system 10.9.5 Mavericks by going into the Apple Store. You will need to download Yosemite.

Once that download finishes, you will be prompted to install or need to double click the download. You will need your Apple ID to enter the Apple store. Also, you will need your Macintosh administrator password.

Without either password, you will be fucked. You may have to upgrade to MAC OS 10.11 El Capitan or MAC OS 10.13 High Sierra instead. You will follow the same steps.

Once you enter in your correct Macintosh administrator password, you will continue on with the prompts. You will choose the destination hard drive. Finally, you will click on “Restart”.

Your Macintosh will reboot and upgrade from MAC OS 10.9.5 to MAC OS X 10.10. Congratulations, you have upgraded the operating system on your Macintosh. If you are having problems finding OS 10.10 Yosemite, there is a search tool within the Apple Store, in the upper right hand corner.

Type in MAC OS Yosemite or MAC OS 10.10 and hit your enter key. If you cannot find a download for Yosemite, then search for El Capitan 10.11 or High Sierra 10.13 instead. Once you successfully upgrade your Macintosh to a newer operating system, then you will be able to reinstall that operating system upgrade via the Apple Store.

Click on “Purchases” tab in Apple Store and any operating system you downloaded and installed should be listed. You would just click on “Download” and follow the prompts to install that Macintosh operating system.

Plan 9 From Bell Labs – Installation Instructions How to

I finally got around to installing an operating system that you may never have heard of. Yes, that is right Plan 9 from Bell Labs. I installed this free operating system on an old Compaq Evo N180.

This is a laptop with just a Pentium III processor. I will share with you what I learned and the basics to installing this operating system. The first thing you will need is obviously a computer to install this UNIX based operating system on.

I was able to install it on an IDE laptop hard drive. Plan 9 does support SATA hard drives. You can use old school serial and PS2 type mice. Also, you can use old school PS2 style keyboards.

This UNIX operating system supports USB devices ie. USB flash drives, mice, keyboards, etc. I hooked up a three wheel USB mouse to this old laptop. Also, I just used the built in keyboard.

You can try Plan 9 by booting off of a Live CD-ROM. Also, you can use this same Plan 9 Live CD-ROM to install to your hard drive. Also, you can create a Live USB flash drive instead.

I choose to burn a CD-RW with Plan 9 instead of USB. I was able to successfully boot off the live CD-ROM. I choose the default settings but had to specify the video setting correctly.

When I accept the default XGA, Rio, which is Plan 9’s windowing manager failed to start. I typed in “vesa” for the video configuration and Rio successfully started. I had to also manually type in “vesa” when I installed Plan 9 on a 30 gigabyte laptop IDE hard drive.

Also, when installing Plan 9 I had to choose the default of [browse] and then immediately press exit, during the mountdist portion of the installation. I have no idea why, but the Plan 9 installation does not detect the distibution path. Thankfully, I read through the documentation and figured this out.

By accepting the default [browse] option, this allows you to browse the installation media. However, you do not want to change to any directories, otherwise this will change the mountdist path. If you do move around the installation media file structure, make sure you return back to where you began.

I thought this was not necessary and a bit odd of a way to tell Plan 9 where to mount installation files from. These two revelations, both vesa and typing exit when selecting [browse] saved me potentially a lot of time. I was eventually able to get Plan 9 installed successfully.

You will need to perform these main categories:

* configfs: choose file system type
* partdisk: edit partition table
* prepdisk: create partition table
* fmtfossil: format file system
* mountfs: mount file system
* configdisg: choose installtion source
* mountdist: mount installation source
* copydist: copy files to hard disk

I referred to Plan 9 from Bell Labs official documentation and this how to install Plan 9 from Bell Labs blog post. I was able to add a user account and create a home folder.

I was able to obtain a local ip address using DCHP. However, I was not able to get domain name server addresses to resolve to their Internet protocol addresses correctly. I could ping out to the Internet using an IP address.

I learned how to add, resize, delete, and move windows. I learned how to use a sam editor. However, I could not figure out how to save changes to files.

Even after installing Plan 9, you can use the default account by typing in glenda when prompted to enter the default of [user]. Glenda is a built in account with a home folder already created. Also, four windows are already configured for you.

Meter, date, readme file, and email file. If you want to just open a terminal, your right click the background and choose “Add”. Your mouse cursor will turn into a cross +.

Right click and then move your mouse to configure how big you want this window. You will see term% |. This is your command prompt.
