We are Computer Engineers and the best of friends who have an interest in sharing random tidbits, musings, tutorials and snippets that we find could be helpful and of use to others. Here you will find an objective view and review, of what we deem worthy of mentioning. Don’t be afraid to call us out on our bullshit, we encourage it, and if there is something you would like us to review drop us a line, we’ll see what we can do.

Computer Engineer, IT Systems Administrator, Gamer, Tinkerer, and Snowboarder. These are the things that I am passionate about. I’ve been using computers since I was 7 years old and started out with the Power PC of the Commodore flavour. I remember using tape drives to load my games. I used to steal my fathers tools to take electronics apart that were around the house. If my brothers Walkman broke I would ask for it so I could take it apart and see what was broken and if I could fix it.

Computer Engineer, Technical Consultant, Gamer, Experimenter, Golfer, and Hockey Player. Coming from a background that started with the Tandy 1000, I’ve seen many technologies come and go, but my passion has remained the same. One memory that always sticks out in my mind is when I broke our home computer as a little boy, my dad was so pissed off that he told me to fix it or else… and to his surprise I fixed it.

  1. Hi guys!

    Can you rebuild your BeamOff tool to run it on MacOS Sierra. You do fantastic work in increasing performance under MacOS series. I can donate your project, because it’s very important for me to work smoothly on VMWare.

    Thanks a lot!

  2. Hello guys, I have a problem you might be able to help me with. Installed VMware and OSX, all smoothly running, and my purpose is to use Final Cut Pro FCP).
    When trying to install FCP I get an error message saying that my ‘machine’ has to little vram. This comes back to that the Macbook that is used in the VMware is an older type, with only 168MB of graphic ram.
    My question is, any way to change the ‘machine’ in VMware to a newer model that meets the requirements?
    My laptop is an ASUS Zenbook, i5 quad core, 12GB ram, 1TB SSD drive, and also have a graphic card that should be sufficient: NVIDIA GeForce 2GB/DDR3

    Hope you can help, thanks in advance,
    Cheers, B

    1. I’m not sure if FCP needs access to GPU hardware or not, or what instruction sets Final Cut pro needs. If it does then you might need hardware that supports IOMMU for VMs. Also try increasing your VRAM and RAM.

  3. Mate, thanks for much for the dash cam write-up you did. Trying to set up the same camera and didn’t understand the need for red AND yellow wires. You made it very clear amongst a sea of very vague web results.
