Since This Is The Tablet Server I Thought I Would Mention That The HiBook Pro Is Only $169!

Of course we all know that the first generation HiBook is a great tablet. After all I am running this server on it and after a year it still kicks ass! Of course I wish I bought this version, but I didn’t…crap!

However the HiBook Pro version is still available dirt cheap from Banggood.com for a mere $169! Of course I have no idea  how long this price will last, so I would  jump on it right now if you want a hi-res 10.1 inch tablet!

Obviously I am a bit biased but you can also do a search on this site to so see a few reviews.

That is all for now,

The HiBook News, Edition Number 22,758…Okay I Might Be Exaggerating a Bit…This Edition: Notebook Choices

In today’s edition we are going to cover a few subjects near and dear to my heart. First we are looking at the HiBook still being the most kick-ass little server on the web.

Of course if you happen to be one of the tens of visitors we get here you are aware that this site has been on the HiBook pretty much since the day I got it back in August of 2016. It still has fantastic battery life, considering its small size and nothing spectacular battery with a roughly 6000 mAh battery. The HiBook Pro with the 2560 x 1600 display and an 8000 mAh battery is still available currently at $169.99!

Of course balancing storage space is the usual juggling act that one gets with a dual boot device that has only 64 GB to start with. But I manage to keep roughly 10 GB free and that is fine since it only has one other duty and that is to watch videos and movies on, sometimes using Kodi which works quite well.

The server itself is sucking up roughly 10 GB and only is really using about 20% of the space I allocated to the Virtual Machine that it runs on. So I can freely upload images, etc and not really worry about using up the server’s virtual space.

The Hi12 is still my work Tablet/notebook in conjunction with the super K480 Bluetooth keyboard, (which is sometimes referred to as my LogiTab), which works with all my devices. In fact this post is being written on the Hi12 right now. The Hi12 usually gets retired at night so it can recharge and I end up beating the heck out of the HiBook for my usual YouTube/movie/TV viewing.

Now moving on to my search for a notebook that is a little bigger than the Hi12 and capable of doing work and a little playing/video watching, it appears that I have settled upon the Chuwi LapBook Air which is a very nice, premium but under $400 notebook with a 14.1 inch FHD display. You can check my previous post on this one for the specs and a video.

So if anyone out there wants to send me a bit of cash or perhaps buy me a LapBook Air, please feel free to do so. Or please click the links on here to purchase one as the small amount I get out of the sale will certainly help!

That is all for now,

Tim

The HiBook News Delayed Edition: The HiBook is a Workhorse for Everything!

This edition was delayed because I was a bit busy this weekend but here we go. I have been using the hell out of the HiBook and even after a year the battery life is excellent and watching videos on it is a pleasure!

The last 6-7 days I have been using it as the web server here AND to watch videos on Kodi or TV channels such as CBS All Access and  a lot of YouTube stuff.

Now considering the fact that the web server is using up 1.8 GB RAM out of the 4 available I have a real appreciation for this device. Sure it is only a 10.1 inch tablet and doesn’t have a super hi-res screen, but 1920 x 1200 is perfectly adequate for movies when viewed from roughly 3 feet away. The battery can get me through about 2 movies or 4 TV episodes and still be sitting at 40% or more.

I can only imagine how good life could be with the HiBook Pro model which can still be found at sites like this. This is one of the best tablets I have ever owned and worth every penny I paid for it. If you are looking for a 10.1 inch tablet, this is the one to get!

The HiBook Pro features a larger battery and a Z8350 processor and a 2560 x 1600 fully laminated display. Bonus here it is on sale again, this time for $170!

That is all for today,

Tim

The HiBook News: This Edition Stopping Hackers, Chapter 3

Last week my primary server was a mess. It was completely infested with something that was causing redirects to some not so reputable sites.

So finally I rebuilt the server on the Hi12 Tablet from a backup that predated the infections. So far that new copy of the VM seems pretty clean.

I ended up changing every password on those sites to something ridiculously long and impossible to remember and far more difficult to hack. So for the time being we seem to be okay. Of course there are never any guarantees on the internet, but for the last several days my primary server seems to be a-okay.

I can still see a lot of attempts to hack the server in the Apache logs, but as I spot them I add those IP addresses to my firewall. So far I have roughly 100 IP’s blocked and end up adding more each day.

So that about covers that issue for the present, so onto the HiBook. It had an issue yesterday where it simply shut down. After arriving home and plugging it in and trying to restart it the tablet suddenly decided to not respond at all. It would not charge or fire up.  It was stone cold dead. So I set it aside for about an hour and tried it again using the reset to defaults start procedure and it fired up and began to charge again.  Of course I had to go back into the BIOS and change the memory speed back to 1600 MHz and it is running just dandy again.

The lesson here is not to give up, but be patient and wait and think it through and sometimes it is just luck and others it is simply going back to the drawing board.

That is all for now,

Tim
