Ryzen is here and so is my new computer. Meet Tantalus, named after the FTL drive from the Normany SR2 … Continue reading Meet Tantalus P400S TG – My New Rig
I promised that I would keep everyone up to date on the changes made to my machines CAPSUPREME and FARPOINT. Well here’s a big update to one of those systems.
CAPSUPREME has it’s history dating back to early 2014 and has gone through many revisions. In fact it is now at it’s 1.6X revision. Yes. For everything today one must include either an X or an i (lower case of course) or a Z in the name. In this case there is sort of a reason for it as I have moved the system to an ITX form factor.

For quite some time I have been using a Logitech Performance MX mouse on my main system Farpoint. A fantastic wireless mouse that if it wasn’t for it’s insatiable appetite for batteries I would carry on with it. But alas, replacing the single double A battery every week is really starting to get old.
I also have the mobile version of the Performance MX called the Anywhere MX that I used with CapSupreme. While the size is nearly perfect for my small hands the switches on the main left and right mouse buttons activate only when pressing in a really specific spot on the button.
So earlier this year I started looking for a replacement. It took me nearly six months to decide on the mouse I wanted to go with. Continue reading “On A Mission for the Perfect Gaming Mouse”
This week was a week of firsts. Not only did I make my first post on this website, but I also set my computer on fire for the first time.
Greetings, RBG browsers! I am the one called Dan.
I am the resident IT Unprofessional here on RedBlueGreen and the Technobabble Podcast, as well as the Team Blue/Green voice of reason to Jeff’s dinstinctly Red-coloured outlook on life.
My story starts in the early-to-mid 90s, as a young, bright eyed, blond-haired kid wasted away his childhood on his family’s PCs playing video games, rather of doing what normal kids would do – go outside…..and then walk to their friends’ houses and play NES and SNES instead. The moral of our sad story is that outside sucks, and I don’t recommend going there.
I was never really a big hardware guy in my earlier years, but my father certainly was (and still is). We had all sorts of electronic equipment laying around the basement in various states of disrepair. I learned a lot from him, but most of my interest lay in the software side.
As part of this website I want to keep my personal rig sort of up to date for you all to know what I am running at any point in time. You may know if you were curious enough to look throughout the blog here that the blog’s name (redbluegreen.ca) is sort of a play on the colours of the main pc chip makers and the three main game consoles. I am firmly on the red team to what is most likely to some of your dismay. Continue reading “Personal Rig Introduction and Some Brief Personal PC History”
