Why a backup is so damned important!

updraftPlus1So today I got home and turned this server back on and decided it might be time to clean some junk up. Unfortunately I used an app with a built in cleaner that promptly wiped out the web server files!

But since I had a backup on my phone I simply uninstalled KSWeb and re-installed it again, then setup the host/database and ran the WordPress setup.

I followed that up with installing the UpdraftPlus plugin and then restoring from the backup from last night. Seems to work just dandy!

Run backups ya’ll!

Let Us Review The Basics of This Fine Tablet… (The Dragon Touch X10)

61oSDuBYzgL._SL1000_It does everything well and it works great, with a few minor glitches on the version I have. So those are covered elsewhere in this blog, so moving on lets look at the list of the stuff it does very, very well!

 

  1. IMG_20160228_004951 The display is great, very bright and perfect for watching videos and movies!
  2. It has a full size standard USB port which allows me to use a cordless mouse, or any other USB device, including a flash drive!
  3. It cost less than 1/3 of the next least expensive tablet to setup and use with a nice LogiTech Keyboard (K480) and either a plugin or wireless mouse (both Logitech in my case, hence the nickname “LogiTab”.
  4. The battery life is outstanding.
  5. It can process an 8 minute video and add music to it in less than 2 min. (Using AndroPro Video App).
  6. Did I mention it has a built in screen capture recorder for video? Yeah, it does!
  7. This tablet can be a tablet like any normal tablet, but once combined with the K480 Bluetooth keyboard and the Logitech mouse, it becomes just as good as ANY overpriced 10 inch notebook, such as a MicroCrap Surface.
  8. Have I mentioned that you can also plug in a micro USB to full USB adapter and stuff works? Yeah, it’s that cool!

My good friend Tim clued me in on this site, so I am saying hello!

tacos-joseI met Tim a few years back and he talked me into one of these super great tablets.

I guess there were issues with the email settings on the site, but now that I finally got registered, I am able to post and tell folks how fantastic it is to have one of these gizmos.

I don’t know everything it can do yet but I am happy to have purchased one!

(I don’t even like tacos, but that racist twit Tim insisted I insert one into my first post!)

I May Have Mentioned I Was Done Upgrading the DTX10/Logitab….I Lied…oops!

LogiTech? Of Course!
LogiTech? Of Course!

So in mid January I purchased a nifty little mouse off Amazon and was happy for roughly a week or so. I happened to drop it, a whopping 2 feet onto a carpeted floor and low in behold the issues started…

Do yourself a favor and do not purchase a wireless mouse for a buck ninety-five. Sure if you never drop it or it never got dropped during shipping it might just last you several years….on the other hand it could still work like mine does, except it keeps the goddamned tablet awake as the cursor moves around a bit.

My cure? Lesson learned! My replacement? Well the nickname for the setup I run is a LogiTab right? Yeah, my replacement was a Walmart purchased Logitech M325c wireless mouse. Works perfect AND came with a battery…did I mention it is like all other LogiTech products. that being built like a freaking tank!

Another gratuitous image of the new mouse….

Dragon Touch X10 Weekly Report

A Wireless Mouse? Oh hell yeah!
A Wireless Mouse? Oh hell yeah!

Another week has passed and it is once again time to talk about the Dragon Touch X10. As anyone who has visited this site knows the DTX10 is my favorite device because it gets the job done.

After several months of owning this tablet I am still happy with it. Along with a Logitech Bluetooth keyboard and a mouse it makes a nice little tablet/notebook at less than half the cost of any combo you could buy from anyone else.

It has also proven itself to be quite the reliable little webserver. I charge it in the evenings and then it will run all day long long as a server and still have 10-12% battery left at the end of the day. Obviously it would last even longer if not for a software limitation that keeps the WiFi on ONLY when the screen is awake meaning I have to leave the screen on all day with Chrome running on the startup screen which is basically a black screen.

As I understand it, this issue has been fixed on the newer versions that have Android 5.0. Hopefully that is true because I am seriously considering getting one simply for the fact that that I won’t have to leave the device plugged in and charging so much.

Bottom line is that I still recommend this tablet to anyone wanting a very good, low cost, 10.6 inch tablet.
