My Notes on the Aero15X

Hello again. Little update here on my personal laptop, the Gigabyte Aero15x. I’ll probably go with an all-AMD laptop in the future or a laptop with no GPU, seeing that the support both from NVIDIA and the Linux community is lacking a tad for laptops with this specific NVIIDIA Optimus setup using a GTX1070.

I have added my notes on what has and hasn’t worked thus far under the project page Linux on the Aero15X if anyone is interested. I’ll update it once I install the original Linux distro I was using on the laptop, though I’m a much bigger fan of the more-complete-feeling Manjaro distro. I’ll have blog posts detailing future projects coming up, once there’s more to report!

Progress on The Lakka Box

Now that yet another college semester has arrived, I find myself yet again with a flexible schedule and yet more coursework than ever before. Good thing I have my personal projects continuing to motivate me forward! I've always felt that college should be to teach you instead of loading you down with unnecessary work. Nonetheless, that rant is for a different time.

Recently, I've made more progress on that Lakka Box project I started a while ago. My goal is to finish a project a week until I can finally get to rack-mounting my servers that have been lying dormant, thereby allowing me to make a lot more headway on the Scraper and VPS Instances projects. I've been toying with ideas for hypervisors for the VPS Instances project, but I heavily doubt my front-end I'd be presenting to my friends and family would look as good as DO's or Vultr's.
