Week 14 – The Quarantine Has Begun

Is a Raspberry Pi and a webcam better than the AWS DeepLens? Apparently there will be a reasonably long period of time before we are able to answer that question. As you know, COVID-19 has affected all of us in various ways, from limiting social interactions to closing schools and businesses with the intent of stopping the spread. In this time I have been bored, but also have had more time to find small technology projects for myself as well as take part in some gaming. Unfortunately, there are no new things happening at the help desk as of now as school is closed, but I plan to write about reviving an old laptop whose hard drive is being reformatted as I write this in hopes of turning it into a Linux server which can be used for various purposes. Stay tuned for that, but most importantly, stay healthy.
