Today’s Test on The Chuwi HiBook: Installing Revive Adserver

I rather like Revive Adserver, because first of all it is free and secondly, it works quite well.

Now of course I really have no real use for it on this site, but I just had to know if it would run. So this morning I installed it, created a few adverts and it seems to function quite well. Any of the adverts you see on here that point to Gearbest.com are actually running from the Revive Adserver on the Tablet here.

So it does work, I am once again impressed by how much this little tablet can do and of course the ad server is only going to function on this version of THE Tablet test server, because I am not going to install it onto the Asus Notebook.

You can find a copy of Revive at this link.

Just testing out a new Plugin. Since this little tablet is now my new test platform!

testing-testing-123Since I am not all that concerned about blowing up this server, since it is relatively easy to reset, it is now my test platform.

So my first test is the Gallery Bank Plugin. Below you will find numerous images posted using the Gallery Bank plugin and we shall see how it functions and then I shall give it the proverbial, 5 star or no star rating.

Below you will find a gallery I created using the plugin using images I have on this tablet….

[gallery_bank type=”images” format=”thumbnail” title=”true” desc=”false” responsive=”true” display=”all” sort_by=”random” animation_effect=”” album_title=”true” album_id=”1″]

So in my short period of time testing this app I will give it 4 out of 5 stars and that is merely because the premium versions are a bit overpriced.

Today’s Test Project: How Long Can The Hi12 Run As a Server?

It isn’t dead yet…after 12 hrs!

I have boasted quite a bit about battery life on the Hi12 and it is quite good, but starting last evening at roughly 6 pm CDT (06/03/17) it was tasked with being the server here.

It is now 0535 hrs and the battery is at….wait for it…..

….patience…. Yep we are at 66%!

Folks that is almost 12 hrs so far and we ain’t  halfway done! Keep in mind this is a tablet using the ComFast dual band adapter, which due to the annoying brilliant blue LED uses a wee bit more energy than one would want, but the trade-off is the super fast WiFi connect, in my case 433 MB/s.

The server you are reading this on IS the Hi12...at least until the battery gives out…so I shall post updates throughout the day.

Latest update, 1815 hrs CDT…17% I have decided at this point that 24 hrs is enough to prove a point and we are now back on the charger!

That is all,

Tim

Okay perhaps my idea about a tablet server cluster was silly. I believe the correct term is redundant servers.

This is Tablet redundancy

Should you read this post this evening, you will notice a notation that this is my Asus Tablet now running as a server. Same address, same KSWeb app, but running on an Intel with twice the ram.

Now what I need is a simple system to keep both tablets synced, because this post won’t be on the Dragon Touch when I fire it back up tomorrow as the test server.

It is rather an interesting question, that really doesn’t require an answer, but gosh darn it, I want suggestions!

How To Get That Cool Battery Icon On Your Win 10 Tablet, Yes It Is Free.

Many times when you watch those online reviewers chat about battery life and percentages and charging you will notice that big battery icon down on the task bar. We are not talking the generic Windows 10 icon that requires a click or mouse-over to see how much battery is left.

The BatteryBar Basic Version gives you a very nifty icon that can show battery percentage, or time left to complete the charging or how much battery time you have remaining and a bit of other info.

That other info will show you  all sorts of more detailed info! The picture below illustrates that…

I went ahead and put this on the HiBook this evening since it is the primary test tablet and all appears okay so far.

It appears to be quite nifty and of course they also have a Pro Version. But to get the free/basic version, just click this link!

That is all I have at the current moment,

Tim
